Neo Core FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions about our Neo Core sabers:

Q: What is a Neo Core saber?
A: It is a saber that is built with our Neo Core electronics. The Neo Core allows the saber to power a NeoPixel blade. All Neo Core sabers come with a NeoPixel blade.

Q: What is a NeoPixel blade?
A: NeoPixel blades are polycarbonate blades that are built with a strip of hundreds of LED's inside the blade. 

Q: What are the benefits of a NeoPixel blade?
A: The blade is much brighter, more evenly illuminated, and has sequential lighting that makes the light of the blade extend up and retract down when powered on and off.

Q: Are Crimson Dawn® NeoPixel blades compatible with other NeoPixel sabers?
A: Of course! We use the standard NPXL connector, so our blades are compatible with pretty much every NeoPixel saber out there.

Q: Can you still duel with a Crimson Dawn® Neo Core saber?
A: Yes. Our Crimson Dawn® NeoPixel blades are made with heavy grade polycarbonate that have walls twice as thick as our normal blades. The LED strips are then surrounded with foam inside the blade to protect them even further. They will stand up just fine to spirited sword play. However, they are not indestructible! Every type of blade can break if you hit them hard enough. Since NeoPixel blades are more expensive than normal blades, most tend not to use them for heavy dueling.

 Q: Is the blade removable?
A: Absolutely! The blades are held in place the exact same way as all our other sabers.

Q: What powers a Crimson Dawn® Neo Core saber?
A: The same thing that powers a normal Crimson Dawn® saber, an 18650 Lithium Ion battery. They also charge the exact same way.
