So I had a question I have a saberforge Avenger and a ultrasabers V3 prophecy I want you remove the LED from the ultrasabers and replace it with a Saber Forge LED can I do a direct replacement without having to change any portion of the electronics period?

Yes and no, have to redo resistors... you just have to do your resistor calculations @ 7.4 volts instead of 3.7 for your led, or use a Buckpuck , otherwise they work fine.

You'll want to replace the power setup. UltraSaber battery solutions aren't strong enough to get the most out of a Saberforge LED.

Okay from my understanding the LEDs in the saberforge are already resisted that's why I'm questioning whether or not I have to mess with the wiring at all aside from just replacing the LED. So if I simply just change the power source everything should be fine there should be no added resistor my soundboard can be fine? I'm really sorry for all the questions I just have no idea what I'm doing and I'm never done it.

It can be done, I've done it , US uses x2 14500 li-ion batteries for 7.4 volts they factor @ 700ma, SO I can say if you redo your SF led's resistors Factoring the colors forward voltage using the 7.4 @1000ma it will light and work fine, the batteries might loose charge a tad faster than with US led module but cant say as I charge mine after use. I'm also not sure what the Obsidian sound card requires voltage wise, so if you change to a singe cell 3.7 hard to say if it will run.
