To access the setting for your saber first access the SD Card. We always advise to save everything on the SD Card so you have a master folder in case of any issues.
Once you have access to the SD Card on your computer go to the
Open "Set" folder and then open the "Config" file.
Once access see below to adjustments you can then make.
Please note if the SD Card access wasn't selected and purchased as part of your order you will not be able to access the SD Card and therefore this section will not apply.
CHARGING YOUR SABER
Only use a USB wall charger with the following ratings - 5V 1A and a maximum charging current of 1000mA.
Any wall charger with an output great than this will cause irreversible damage to the charging board.
It is to be noted if you intend on leaving the hilt as on display for long periods of time (Weeks, Months or longer) we would strongly recommend giving the battery a full charge. If the li-ion battery is allowed to fall below 5% power this can lead to the battery no longer accepting a charge and the only way to then fix this issue is to replace the battery which can be a chargable fix.
DO NOT USE FAST CHARGERS
General Product Information.
All ForceSabers are 100% bespoke custom handmade to order. As this Saber is 100% handmade from scratch there are unavoidably slight cosmetic scratches or imperfections on the handle, rivets and blade. Due to the construction of the blade housing (emitter) there will be heavy scratch on the inside of this area but it will have no effect on the blade or use or look of the saber. The raw materials may also come with imperfections or marks. All switches are manually glued in place, the switch will not come lose but there can be residual glue around the switch edges. When being used these imperfections / points will have no effect or impact on the use of the item.
Prior any saber being dispatched the electronics are fully tested. Once the saber has passed the tests the battery case is placed inside the hilt and the end cap is firmly pushed in place. DO NOT aggressively pull the battery case as this will rip the wiring which is not covered under warranty.
As this is a Neopixel Blade it is running of a XenoPixel Board. XenoPixel boards store all information on a Micro SD Card.
The Information stored on these SD Cards are:-
Gesture controls on / off
Power on / off
Multiple Sound and character profiles
Lightsaber volume High / low
if a XenoPixel, NeoPixel lightsaber is purchased without SD Card Access you will have no control or access to any functions or sound profile on the Lightsaber. This means you will not be able to adjust, add or remove the sound profiles on the SD Card. Once purchased and your order has been delivered we can not accept a return on the grounds of needing one access to do one of the above.
If SD Card access is needed once and order has been delivered the LIghtsaber can be sent back and ForceSabers can upgrade the lightsaber to accommodate SD Card access but there is a standard charge of £50.
This £50 charge is to cover the loss of parts to access the electronics and then to cover the replacement of lost parts and new additional parts such as a chassis and re-instalation. It also covers the return postage and packaging costs.
We are advising you on the above because it is important you are fully aware what impact access and no access to the SD Card has on your purchase for future us on your Neopixel Lightsaber.
Li-ion Battery Safety
Use special caution when using Li-ion cells, they are very sensitive to charging characteristics and may explode or burn if mishandled. Make sure you have enough knowledge of Li-Ion rechargeable batteries in charging, discharging and assembly before use.
Do not let your batteries come into contact with metal objects such as keys, loose change or any other metal objects. Doing so will put you at risk for short circuiting your battery and explosion. Do not put loose batteries in your pocket, purse, bag or anywhere else. When the battery is not in use.
Always charge in/on a fire-proof surface. Never leave charging batteries unattended.
Do not modify batteries or chargers in any shape or form.
Only use Lithium Ion rechargeable batteries in devices that have a built in protection circuit board (PCB) that detect shorts, over-discharge, over-charging etc. Use of lithium ion batteries without a PCB may increase your risk or explosion an/or fire.
Store your batteries away from the sun and heat to prevent overheating your batteries.
Please be sure to inspect your battery before use to ensure it is not damaged including tears/rips in the battery wrap. Discontinue use immediately if battery is damaged.
Do not discharge batteries below 2.5V. Do not charge the batteries over 4.2V.
Do not use any charger with am output higher than 5 Volts and a maximum charging current of 1000 mA.
