Lightsaber Replica with Glowing Crystal

If you’re a fan of Star Wars, chances are good that you’ve wanted to own a lightsaber. You can always go the Jedi route and build your own, but if you’d rather order a ready-made version, you can turn to companies like Martin Beyer’s Graflex Saber. They make a gorgeous replica with a glowing LED crystal that looks just like a Kyber crystal and fantastic sound effects. It does indeed look like an elegant weapon from a more civilized age. The model shown in the video is the second version from Beyer. It includes the following materials:

Cristal-chamber
The cristal is a real blue Aqua Aura Quartz (removable).
soundboard: CF 7,5 (by plecter labs)
batteries: 2x 3,7V 14650 (1,1 A)
vintage Graflex Flash Gun
2W speaker
main LED: triple cree (blue,green,white)
