Xenopixel - Lightsaber Instructions

The day has come… The day that you get to harness the power of your new saber. This is as real as it gets. We're so happy that you've chosen Reflekt Sabers as your saber outpost!

Now, it's time to master your saber.

Half the fun comes from trying it out yourself, but this manual will walk you through all the saber's functions so you can fast-track your skills and become a saber master!

Saber Basics 

Your journey to becoming a saber master had begun. First things first, let’s make sure your saber is fully charged. We recommend leaving your new saber on charge for 4 - 8 hours. This will give you up to 8 hours of battery life!

Your saber’s functionality is controlled by the main button located in the center of your hilt. When the button is held, the outer ring light will flash in 0.5 second intervals. Each interval corresponds to a function.


Hold down the button to bring your saber out of Sleep Mode. You will hear an introductory sound say 'Power On.' The hilt is now in Wake Mode and ready for use.


Tap the button once to ignite your saber blade.


To turn off your saber completely and save battery, press and hold the button down for 10 seconds.

Trouble Shooting

Should you find any issues with your saber, here you will find all the troubleshooting information to help you fix the problem. 

Saber has no sound

Saber may be in mute mode. Turn off your saber, then hold the button for 1 flash (0.5 seconds) to change the sound volume. Your saber has 3 different volume settings: High/Low/Mute.

My saber has lost a colour, doesn’t light up, or has no swing or clash sounds

This may be a low battery issue. Please charge your saber for a minimum of 4-8 hours. If the battery is fully charged and you are still having this issue, try removing and reinstalling the battery. To reach the battery, please unscrew the hilt.

When charging, my saber vocalises ‘charging’, then immediately after, vocalises ‘ready’

The battery may not be making contact properly with the connector plates inside. Please unscrew the hilt, remove the battery and carefully adjust the connectors so the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ both are in contact with the battery.
