We used binders only. The strapping tape does not give pressure to hold the led prongs to the batteries.
We were going to assemble them the night before b/c LEDs will stay lit for over 24 hours. The one we tested beforehand at home stayed lit for closer to 48. It does depend how many LEDs you have on each battery. I would recommend testing them at home before!
However, when we gave Anabel all of our stuff at DT, she offered to assemble the LED throwies herself, so she did. We were VERY grateful for that. I don't think they charged us for it, but that could have been b/c I had expressed being really disappointed in DT at that point (the whole three weddings on my day thing).
Kate&Devon - We borrowed a HUGE suitcase from a friend and had 2 big suitcases each. (4 total, plus our carry-ons). It all fit!
