Welcome to the Sabertrio User Guide. This page contains important information that will guide you to maximizing the lifespan of your saber as well utilizing it to the fullest of its capabilities; please read this user guide.

THE AAA STUNT SABER’S CHASSIS

The on-board electronics of a typical Sabertrio AAA battery powered stunt saber is relatively simple however to ensure everything inside it is well protected and does not rattle, the saber still contains an internal chassis made from Delrin; a very durable thermoplastic. In the section below, we will be referring to several parts of the chassis and therefore is important to familiarize yourself with it. The illustration below shows the chassis that is found in all Sabertrio AAA stunt sabers.

OPERATIONAL GUIDELINES

for STUNT AAA SABERS

Accessing the Saber’s Chassis

  • Remove the pommel by unscrewing it from the saber to reveal the chassis inside.
  • Using the provided 3mm Hex Key (the larger sized one), unscrew the Covertec wheel’s screw from the saber. Remove the Covertec wheel & its screw and place it somewhere safe. 
  • Reach into the saber’s bottom opening with your fingers and hold onto the handle of the chassis. Gently pull it out completely.

Inserting the Chassis Back Into the Saber

  • Identify the Covertec wheel’s screw hole location and align it approximately with the screw hole on the chassis.
  • Hold the chassis at its handle and slowly push it back into the saber.
  • Push the chassis until the screw hole is visible through the Covertec wheel’s screw hole on the saber. You may need to slightly rotate and adjust the chassis to align everything properly.
  • Once the chassis’ screw hole is aligned to the Covertec wheel’s screw hole, replace the Covertec wheel onto the saber and screw everything together with the Covertec wheel’s screw using the provided 3mm hex key.
  • Do NOT forcefully tighten the screw as this may damage the screw threads on the saber. If the screw does not tighten smoothly, unscrew it out and try again. Screw thread damage is not covered by the Sabertrio warranty.

Replacing the Saber’s Battery

  • Remove the chassis from the saber completely.
  • Separate the 4x AAA battery holder from the chassis. The easiest way is to hold the top part of the battery holder with your fingers and pull it out while your other hand is holding the chassis.
  • Remove all four AAA batteries and replace it with brand new ones. We recommend using Alkaline batteries for the best results. Please note that rechargeable NiMh AAA batteries are NOT compatible as it has different voltage output compared to regular AAA batteries.
  • Replace the 4x AAA battery holder into the chassis and reinsert the chassis back into the saber.

THE 18650 STUNT SABER’S CHASSIS

Sabertrio stunt sabers have the option to be upgraded from 4x AAA batteries to a single rechargeable lithium-ion 18650 battery. Selecting this upgrade will grant your saber a different chassis and therefore it is important to be familiar with it especially because we will be referring to several parts of the chassis in the following section. The illustration below shows the chassis that is found in all Sabertrio 18650 stunt sabers.

OPERATIONAL GUIDELINES

for STUNT 18650 SABERS

Accessing the Saber’s Chassis

  • Remove the pommel by unscrewing it from the saber to reveal the chassis inside.
  • With one hand cupping the bottom opening of the saber, gently shake the chassis out. When part of the chassis is out of the saber, hold the sides of it and pull it out completely. You may need to rotate the chassis to align it into the right position to be fully taken out.
  • Never forcefully shake the chassis out as its fall from the saber may put stress on the wires and potentially snap it. The chassis can never be completely separated from the saber; it will still be held back by all the wires connecting the components together.

Inserting the Chassis Back Into the Saber

  • Align the chassis’ cut-in to the saber’s Covertec wheel’s screw and gently push the chassis into the saber.
  • Replace the pommel to saber and screw it back tightly. If the pommel cannot screw completely in, remove it and gently shake the chassis out. Rotate the chassis one entire round to bundle twist the wires behind it and reinsert the chassis back into the saber. Repeat this step if the pommel does not screw completely again.

Recharging the Saber

  • For Sabertrio 18650 stunt sabers, chargers are sold separately. If you wish to use your own charger that has a 2.1mm jack, please ensure that its output does not exceed 4.2V, 1A.
  • For recharging with a Sabertrio charger, attached the correct plug head type to the charger and plug the charger into a wall socket.
  • Access the saber’s chassis as explained above to reveal the recharge port inside the saber. Connect the charger’s 2.1mm jack to the recharge port. The LED indicator on the charger should now be red indicating that the connection is successful and the battery of the saber is being charged.
  • When the battery is fully charged, the LED indicator on the charger will revert back to green. The 2.1mm jack can now be disconnected from the recharge port and the chassis may be reinserted back into the saber.
  • A depleted battery would typically require about 5 hours to be fully charged.
