Great for those who are a bit messier at the keys, Kaihua’s Kailh Box switches are IP56 waterproof rated (compared to IP40 on MX switches) to keep dust and moisture out. Created with a box around the cross stem instead of the cross stem just sticking up, they’re built to avoid corrosion and debris buildup, which lengthens the lifespan of the switch. The box extends to the contact plate and leaf, providing extra protection. Utilizing the already popular Cherry MX form, Kaihua Kailh switches provide an easy transition so you don’t have to let go of your existing keycap collection. Also, as opposed to MX switches in which plastic is consistently making contact with plastic, these switches involve a mechanism pressing against a mechanism, thus reducing the chance for failure over time. The MX-compatible stems provide a secure fit for any keycaps, PCBs, or plates you might want to assemble.
Note: At checkout, choose between black, blue (white colored), brown, and red. The base drop will include 120 switches, but you can purchase just 70 for smaller keyboards for (- $10). Quantities are extremely limited.
