Charging & Battery Questions

To ensure optimal performance and longevity of your saber, it is essential to follow proper charging guidelines. We kindly provide the following important information regarding the batteries and charging process:

  1. Battery Charging Time: It is recommended to charge the batteries for a duration of two hours between each use. This allows for a full charge and ensures that your saber is ready for your next adventure.

  2. Battery Life: The battery life of our sabers typically lasts for approximately one and a half hours. However, please note that the actual battery life may vary depending on usage patterns and settings.

  3. Charging Precautions: It is crucial to exercise caution when charging your saber to prevent any damage to the internal components. We strongly advise against using a power source that exceeds 5V and 1 Amp, as this can potentially damage the circuit board. We recommend checking the specifications of your charger to ensure compatibility with your saber.

  4. Recommended Charging Method: To maintain the integrity of your saber's battery and circuitry, it is highly recommended to use a computer's USB port for charging. The USB port on a computer typically provides a power output of 5V and 0.5 Amp, which is within the safe range for charging your saber.


By adhering to these guidelines, you can ensure the longevity and optimal performance of your saber's battery and electronics. We prioritize the safety and satisfaction of our customers, and we appreciate your attention to these charging precautions.

What is the difference between Neopixel vs Baselit Sabers?

Neopixel saber incorporates a cutting-edge lighting system that sets it apart by offering enhanced visual features and exceptional blade detail. With Neopixel technology, the LEDs are intricately positioned within the blade itself, allowing for precise control over individual LEDs and enabling a wide range of dynamic lighting effects. It provides a truly immersive experience with customizable color transitions, animated patterns, and tons of customizability.


In contrast, a Base-Lit saber employs a traditional approach where the LED resides in the handle and illuminates the blade from the hilt upwards. While still visually appealing, Base-Lit sabers offer a more straightforward lighting experience with a consistent glow along the blade.


It's important to note that Neopixel and Base-Lit systems are not interchangeable. Each requires specific compatibility, meaning Neopixel blades are designed to work exclusively with Neopixel sabers, and Base-Lit blades are tailored for use with baselit sabers.

Can two hilts be connected together to make a Staff Saber?

We're excited to offer compatibility between select sabers in our collection, providing you with the opportunity to create a staff saber for an even more dynamic and immersive experience. While not all of our sabers are designed with native staff configuration, we do provide specially designed accessories that allow you to unlock this feature.
