·How Do Lightsabers Work?·



Fans of Star Wars have long been fascinated with lightsabers. We have seen these sparkling swords repeatedly steal our hearts. No matter how many times we watch the lightsaber battles again, we always get the same enjoyment as when we first watched them. Some enthusiasts simply want to know everything there is to know about lightsabers.


Their interest in the lightsabers only continues to increase. After seeing what a lightsaber is capable of, are you curious as to how they operate? What guideline do they adhere to? Where does the energy for these blades' operation originate from? Let's investigate.


How many colors are there in Kyber crystals?

The hues of these Kyber crystals vary. Green and blue lightsabers are the most prevalent, which explains why so many Jedis own them. Purple, white, yellow, and black Kyber crystals, as well as other hues, are uncommon in nature. We only know that Ahsoka Tano and Mace Windu were the only Jedis to use white lightsabers and purple lightsabers, respectively. Likewise, there was just one black lightsaber, and it belonged to the Mandalorians.

So, the question of whether these Kyber crystals run out of energy if they are the power source for the plasma blades may come up. The response is no! Kyber crystals are uncommon minerals that have endless energy.


Kyber Crystal outlines the qualities of the lightsaber.

The characteristics of the crystal and how it connects to the Force user determine the type of lightsaber a user has. There are several distinct lightsabers, including Shota, double-bladed, and regular models. Sith injects negative emotions into Kyber crystals to turn them red because the red Kyber crystal does not naturally exist.

One special illustration is Kylo Ren's lightsaber. His lightsaber produces an erratic and unexpected form of plasma due to the damaged Kyber crystal.


Power Cells

Let's revisit the parts and discuss how lightsabers function. The power cells are the next element that keeps this killing machine going. Yes! The lightsaber's energy is stored in kyber crystals. To extract the energy from the crystal and keep everything operating, we still need additional electricity.

They created power cells that were tiny enough to fit inside the hilt and could store large quantities of energy since the Star Wars galaxy is more technologically sophisticated than our planet. In case of necessity, some Jedi carried additional Diatanium cells.

The original lightsabers, however, were not extremely sophisticated. When lightsaber technology first started, around a thousand years ago, power cells were utilized outside because they were too big to fit inside the hilt. They used a flimsy link to connect those cells to the gills, one that could be severed during battles. Thus, lightsabers changed over time.



A lightsaber's hilt is more than simply a handle; it is the piece of equipment that connects everything. Since you may create your own distinctive-looking hilt, it is, in my view, the most amazing aspect of a lightsaber. We observed several distinct Force users using a variety of hilts.

There was no special material required to create a lightsaber. Anything may be used to create a hilt. similar to how Ezra Bridger created his pistol's hilt. Similar to this, Corran Horn constructed his hilt using various auto components. The aesthetic is irrelevant if the hardware is excellent.

Technically speaking, the hilt should be composed of a dependable, hard material like metal. The material should also act as an insulator or shield between the power cells. The lightsabers used by Jedi and Sith were created by some skilled, big-eyed extraterrestrial engineers, and their hilts were never shorted out.

A switch connects everything within the hilt. To keep the lightsaber on, either the Jedi or the Sith must hold the switch. The power cells draw a significant quantity of plasma energy from the Kyber crystal when they flip on the switch. The plasma then transforms into a beam. The laser can cut through anything and has a temperature range of 800 to 25000 degrees Celsius.


A lightsaber's design appears to be both simple and sophisticated. But lightsabers can work miracles, one of which is making us fans dependent on their spectacle. Now you know how lightsabers work, welcome to shop a lightsaber that suits you the most on Damiensaber!!

How Long Does It Take to Full Charge? And How Long Will It Last After It's Done Charging?
The batteries need to be fully charged for four hours in-between uses. Typically, the battery life is roughly two hours. The reason for the slow charge is because the charger only has a 5V and 0.5A output. Do not use a power source that is over 1A and 5V to charge your lightsaber!!!

Yes, most of our sabers are compatible with each other to be able to make a double-bladed saber. If not, contact our customer service or online chat to speak out your requirement, we will try our best to solve your needs.
What is a blade? Are the saber blades removeable from the hilts? Can they be replaced?
A lightsaber blade is a brilliant part of a lightsaber, which made from polycarbonate, and generally about 72cm/82cm/92cm length and 2mm/3mm thickness, extending out of the emitter section when the lightsaber is activated and recedes when the lightsaber is deactivated. All of our lightsabers whether baselit, Xenopixel and proffie come equipped with a removeable and replaceable blade.
