Champion tier sabers can be charged using the micro USB port and USB cable packaged with the saber. A blinking light will signal that the saber is charging. Sabers require 4 - 6 hours for a full charge.

Saber is shutting down during clash or blaster deflect
This is usually an indication of a low battery. Charge your saber and the issues should go away.
Saber is not charging or connecting to a windows 10 computer
If you’re experiencing this issue, try a different micro USB cable. Make sure there is no debris or dust in the USB port/cable that could prevent the contacts from making a clean connection.
I’m installing a 3rd party sound font.
When using 3rd party sound fonts, the font must have a “startup.wav” file or it will not work.
Note: While our champion sabers are compatible with 3rd party sound fonts, we do not provide customer assistance with installation and troubleshooting. Saberforge is not responsible for issues that may result from using 3rd party software.
