Understanding the Differences Between Neopixel and Baselit Lightsabers

We love creating engaging and durable sabers for all kinds of fans. From the devoted duelist, looking to impress their team, to the cosplayer hoping to finish off their Mandalorian look, we strive to elevate the saber experience.

Even with all our various features and years of supplying the galactic fandom with quality saber choices, we want to help everyone understand the difference between Neopixel and RGB Baselit cores. That is why we put together a quick buyers guide for you to enjoy, so the next purchase you make at SabersPro brings home the exact saber you wanted to proudly display.

Covering the Basics

Let’s begin by covering the basics. Not everyone will understand what a modern saber looks like and how it is designed to work. Everything else being equal, the two primary types of lighting you get in sabers are either baselit with standard RGB (red, green, blue) colors emanating from the handle/hilt. With Neopixel technology, you get a line of LED lights throughout the blade itself, allowing for a far more diverse set of colors, functions, and effects.

This doesn’t mean baselit sabers are not valuable. Even though they tend to be a little more affordable for those shopping on a budget, they are equally beneficial for duelists. Durability is a significant factor for anyone wanting to go full force with one of our unique sabers. Even though we use premium T6 aircraft aluminum and polycarbonate materials in all our sabers, you sometimes might want to opt for a blade without lighting where you will be clashing with another duelist.

Neopixel is far more fun for collectors, cosplayers, demonstrations, and die-hard fans. These have hundreds of small LED lights mounted safely inside the blade. That creates unmatched brightness and versatile lighting effects that can even be based on your movements. You can still use Neopixel sabers in combat, but stick to a more gentle interaction instead of full-force tactics.

Now for the Features

There are all kinds of incredible features and enhancements you get with both our baselit and Neopixel sabers. Our artisan craftworkers at SabersPro try to theme and design each piece according to the overall character, instance, or idea for which they are named. Some of these features include:

The ignition sequence is an important feature to talk about because this is what many fans love to dream about. The idea of being fully decked out in your Luke or Obi-Wan cosplay and walking through the fake smoke with your saber slowly coming to life. We’re talking full intimidation mode!

With Neopixel, you get lighting all the way from the base to the tip of the blade. That creates way more variety in how the various sabers will ignite. We also add pulsating effects that are just not possible with baselit options.

At SabersPro, we offer a variety of Neopixel types, including our SN Pixel V4, Proffie 2.2, and Xenopixel V2. Each one has additional feature options compared to the previous model, with the Proffie 2.2 and Xenopixel V2 having customizations. This allows you to create unique soundfonts and designs according to your own needs.

Even though we include rechargeable batteries in the hilt of all our blades, you get a little more extended battery life out of the premium Proffie 2.2 and Xenopixel V2 options. That way, you can enjoy a whole night of cosplay or dueling without having to find a nearby outlet.

Time to explore!

Now that you’ve seen the differences between baselit and Neopixel sabers, you should have no problem browsing our online shop at SabersPro and selecting the version that will work best for you.
