To be honest I don`t think LEDs will work since Hasbro hasn`t put out a light up light saber that doesn`t stick out of the end of the tube to this day. Best bet would be to disect a flash light or one of the $6 Walmart light up laser swords for parts. Sorry if this puts a damper on things. But if you are heck bent on LEDs then by all means prove me wrong I`d love to see a light up light sabre that goes all the way into the handle. If I remember correctly hearing aid batteries should work for LEDs. Either them or what ever size battery they use in the 5", and 6" action figures. I know they`re button cells but I`m not sure what size. I hope some of this helps you out.

I saw a guy use a flat sheet led for the rear of a mellenium falcon. It came in flexible rectangular sheets. I know it sounds wrong but check it out. I think I got there from starship modeler but I don't have the link off hand.

I have a Qui-Gon light saber that I bought years ago at Eckerd drugstore. It lights up and fully collapses, but the blade doesn't lock in that position. It's set up pretty much like a flashlight.
