"Hah! I knew you'd be quaking in your balance stabilizers!"
―B1-0516 "Bats," to other droids[1]

Balance stabilizers were a type of stabilizer that could be installed in a droid to keep the unit steady. They were used in the B1-series battle droid and T-series military strategic analysis and tactics droid fielded by the armed forces of the Confederacy of Independent Systems.[1]

During the Battle of Horain between 20 BBY and 19 BBY,[2] the rogue battle droid B1-0516 "Bats" resisted his Separatist captors and, believing he had scared his fellow B1 units and a T-series tactical droid, exclaimed that he had predicted they would be quaking in their balance stabilizers. In reality, the droids were shaking due to vibrations from an approaching Armored Assault Tank manned by Clone Captain CT-7567 "Rex" and Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Balance stabilizers were mentioned in "Roger Roger," a comic story written by Cavan Scott that was included in Star Wars Adventures (2017) 19,[1] which was released on March 27, 2019.[3]
