·How to Customize Your Own Lightsaber?·



Custom lightsabers are a unique addition to your lightsaber needs as you can forge a lightsaber by choosing your own parts and building a custom lightsaber that represents the force that is only present within you! Making those toy lightsabers that you used to clash with your friends and siblings during your childhood is really easy. On the other hand, it requires technical knowledge and skill to build a custom lightsaber which is by no means an easy task and will require you to procure the right parts and tools to accomplish. In addition to the right skills and materials, customizing a lightsaber is not without costs.


Most of these requirements can be daunting and fearful for beginners aiming to build their first custom lightsaber but don’t worry we at ZIA Sabers have got you covered as confronting fear is the destiny of a Jedi! Follow our comprehensive guide to know everything for building custom lightsabers and add your own personal touch.


Customize Your Lightsaber

In order to build a lightsaber that is as accurate as the ones, you see in the movies and video games you need to know beforehand what are the components that are used to build a lightsaber. The lightsaber is mainly made of two parts: the hilt and the blade. Although it seems simple there are much smaller components inside the hilt and the blade that you need to know about. We can break these down to:







Button(with or without the light)



In addition to this, you also have to consider other things and accessories such as coupler, blade length, blade plug, battery, speaker, brightness, and effects while crafting custom lightsabers.



The hilt is the part of the lightsaber that your hand holds while swinging a lightsaber at your opponents or while moving into a stance while cosplaying as your favorite Jedi or Sith warriors. The right choice of the hilt is largely dependent on your personal choice for style and aesthetics as well as practical considerations for housing the electronics & soundboard. The length and thickness of the hilt are also important as it should grip smoothly into the size of the user’s hands.



The blade is the narrowest part of your lightsaber, but it is the part that is directly involved in combat while striking an opponent’s lightsaber blade which is why it is important to choose the right blade that is tough enough to withstand the harsh lightsaber strikes in intense combat of Jedi vs Sith. There are different blade types to choose from as well as the length of the blade that goes into determining the right blade choice for your unique custom lightsabers. The blade is made from a polycarbonate tube that can diffuse the light and also withstand dueling.


As with any lightsaber, the choice of components first and foremost depends on what you require from the lightsaber. There are different blade choices based on your needs. If you are looking for a blade for cosplay that displays the maximum brightness with a realistic Star Wars look then that blade might not be suitable for heavy dueling. The two most common types of blades are:


Midgrade – These are best utilized for light dueling but provide maximum brightness for a lightsaber. You can easily perform spinning techniques due to their lightweight. Midgrade blades slightly bend on impact but do not break. These are best for cosplayers as they provide realistic photos.


Heavy grade – These blades are twice as heavy as midgrade blades and the polycarbonate tubing wall is twice as thick. Heavy grade blades are best suited for heavy dueling and they last longer due to their durability.


Apart from this, there are standard blades and Neopixel blades. The Neopixel blade forms the Neopixel lightsaber that has LEDs inside the blade rather than inside the hilt like a standard RGB lightsaber which allows it to shine brighter and provide more effects.

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!!!
Can two hilts be connected to make a double-bladed saber?
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.

What is lightsaber hilt? Does a hilt come with a blade?

It contains a combinatio handgrip, blade emitter, button parts, lightsaber kits and pommels. Every saber can come with a lightsaber hilt and a blade. But you can buy sperate empty hilt without blade for futher custom.
What is a blade plug?
Lightsaber blade plugs, also called safety plugs, which are designed to be installed in your handles in place of a blade.
