What battery is used with these blades?  How is the battery retained on the blade.

Battery is a CR-1225.
One per tail blade.
It is held in by friction.
You push the battery in at the root leading edge.
Think of it like a sandwich where the battery is sandwiched on both flat sides by the tail rotor blade.
Removal is with fishing line.
Same as the other Fun-key produced night tail blades that use a single battery per blade.

How many flights per set of batteries can be expected?

Really depends on two things.
How long are your flights and when you consider them too dim for proper visibility.
I keep new batteries with me for the tail blades.
I would estimate I get two hours of flying between battery changes.
