Do you Star Wars?
Mentions of Darth Vader absorbing blaster bolts through his hands:
I, Jedi - Michael Stackpole
Jedi Search - Kevin J. Anderson
Dark Apprentice - Kevin J. Anderson
Dark Tide I: Onslaught - Michael Stackpole
Enemy Lines II: Rebel Stand - Aaron Allston

But please, do tell me WHERE you read that he couldn't.

I'm not disagreeing with you, but Mitchellw is correct on a point. Because of his extensively cybernetic body parts, it was difficult for Vader to channel energy utilizing force powers. I'd wager his armor and cybernetics were enhanced with cortosis or Phrik alloy, which is resistant to lightsabers (in both cases) and in the case of Cortosis, actually caused a feedback loop in them which shorted them out for a short time.

Vader, while more than powerful enough to perform force lightning and various other 'energy' based force powers, couldn't perform the techniques normally because his body was so synthetic.

In the Expanded Universe The Emperor mentions that it was not the cybernetics preventing Vader from achieving his full power, infact they barely inhibited his ability at all once he got used to it. It was instead his emotional trauma, which was why the Emperor gave up on him as an apprentice in the first place. His armour was strong enough to deflect lightsaber hits and blaster bolts as you say, but he could also deflect them with the Force as well.

You are right on all accounts, but the thing is, Vader, even in his diminished ability was insanely powerful. He could preform nearly all abilities even through his synthetic parts with great difficulty.
Reason why he couldn't preform lightning is because force abilities start at the organic and then channel though synthetic. The lightning would have fried his mechanical hands from the inside.
