The advantage of Base-lit sabers are their durability. As their powerful LED light source is hidden in the base and not the blade, these sabers the best options for any dueling or any adventuring that might risk damaging the more expensive Neopixel LED blades.
Our base-lit lightsabers enjoy 12 color options and fun light and sound effects like smooth swing, flash-on-clash, blaster deflect, and more!
Neopixel saber blades have hundreds of small LED lights mounted inside the saber blade itself. The advantage of Neopixel sabers are their unmatched brightness and versatile light effects the LED lights can produce. You'll feel like Luke powering on your saber for the first time and watching the Neopixel blade ignite in color from base to tip - lightsaber training drone sold separately (someday)!
Overall, Neopixel sabers offer more variety in light animations that are not possible to achieve with the single powerful LED employed by the base-lit models.
While a favorite amongst collectors and cosplayers, Neopixel sabers should not be used for more than gentle combat.
All Sith Sabers Neopixel sabers are SN Pixel V4 Neopixel lightsabers with 27 soundfonts, extra customizations, bluetooth, and a SD card.
In short, Base-lit sabers are the most durable, and Neopixel sabers have the most advanced effects and brightest lights. Both use the same quality alloy hilts and poly-carbonate blades.
