My friend and I were joking around about Mace Windu having a mace instead of a lightsaber and that got me wondering: is there any type of mace that uses lightsaber technology?

1How would a "mace" be any different? Having a bit different shape of a blade?– MithoronJul 3, 2022 at 19:09
In a word, no. There are no variants of the lightsaber that meet your description of a 'light mace'. Probably the closest is a lightclub, which is basically a big fat lightsaber.
There are, however, 'resonator maces', 'vibro-maces' and 'riot control batons' that use other tech to create a heavy club that will also incapacitate anyone that it hits, but these don't generally have the sort of fine cutting effect that we associate with lightsaber technology.
Not a mace, a club. It's a similar thing, it inflicts blunt force trauma rather than cutting or burning damage. And it's not a canon source. But for what it's worth, the police in Futurama use lightsaber clubs.
