In this review, we will compare the Booster M2 and Booster Lightsaber massage guns. With these two devices being the brand’s bestsellers and also extremely popular with buyers in terms of reviews, we hope this comparison will help you find the right fit for you.

Comparison: Booster M2 vs Lightsaber
The amplitude, also referred to as stroke length, measures the distance covered by the massage gun’s head as it moves back and forth.
If you are looking for a deep tissue massage, you should go for an amplitude of 12 mm or more. A stroke length of 10 mm or less on the other hand is ideal for a massage experience on the surface level.
The force describes at which pressure the motor of the massage gun begins to reach its limits and stalls.
Once again, a higher value is better for a deep percussive massage. Therefore the Lightsaber wins this category as well. But if you prefer a soft and tender massage, there is nothing wrong with the M2.
Frequency & Speed Levels
Finally, we also want to compare at what frequency the massage gun hits our muscles and how we can control the speed levels.
Both devices are very close to each other with 3200 and 3300 ppm, respectively. They are also both equipped with Booster’s Smart Hit™ Technology and come with 8 different intensity modes, so we will call this a draw.
3200 ppm, 8 levels
3300 ppm, 8 levels
The Lightsaber also edges the M2 in this category with a battery life of up to 6 hours compared to 5 hours for its competitor. It takes about 2 hours for both devices to be fully recharged again.
The Lightsaber also comes with a removable battery, which would allow you to bring a second battery on a longer trip when there is no possibility to recharge. Both devices are compatible with the Booster Wireless Charging Stand.

If you want to bring your massage gun to the office or use it on your couch while watching TV, the noise level your device generates could be a deciding factor for you.
While both competitors are equipped with Booster’s Triple Noise Reduction™ Technology, the Lightsaber is a bit quieter at around 45 dB compared to the 55 dB of the M2. Still, this is only the noise that an electric toothbrush generates.

Depending on the muscle group you want to target, different massage heads will be better suited than others. Both devices come with a total of six different attachments that allow you to choose the right one for each part of your body.
Weight & Dimensions
Finally, we will compare the weight and product dimensions of both massage devices to determine the best one for travel or simply a life on the go. At 2.2 lbs vs 2.4 lbs, the M2 is lighter and also smaller than the Lightsaber and takes the win in this category.
2.2 lbs, 6.7 x 2.4 x 9.8 in
2.4 lbs, 7.5 x 2.4 x 10.2 in
Conclusion: Booster M2 vs Lightsaber – Which One Should You Buy?
So, a unanimous decision for the Booster Lightsaber? If you want the better massage gun overall, then you should definitely go with the Lightsaber. But if you are rather looking for great value for the money, then you can’t go wrong with the Booster M2 at a price of almost half of its competitor.
