Obiwan saber2

Obi-Wan Kenobi's first lightsaber, which included a pommel cap with a built-in backup power cell.

The pommel cap was the endpiece of a lightsaber hilt.

Typically, they were made from a single piece of heavy metal, and they also served as the backplate for the inner workings of the lightsaber, completing various circuits. In some lightsabers, the cap also held an extra backup power cell; such was the case with Dooku's lightsaber and Obi-Wan Kenobi's first lightsaber. These heavy ends of the hilt were sometimes incorporated into the fighting styles of a Jedi as an alternative to actually impaling an opponent on the blade end of the weapon. This sometimes provided a nonfatal resolution to an incident.

They typically included a ring to hook on the wielders belt when not in use, though some lightsabers, such as Dooku's, used a powerful magnetic plate for the same purpose.
