NovelKeys Box Clicky Switches
NovelKeys Box Switches use revolutionary design elements, like the Kaihua click bar and Box switch architecture, to provide an excellent typing experience. The click bar-equipped models are commonly praised for their tactility, minimal stem wobble, and smoothness. Box switches also have a number of advantages over traditional Cherry MX switches in terms of durability.
Compatibility Note: pre-retooling Box switches may cause cracking in certain aftermarket ABS keycap sets — notably those from GMK. PBT / POM keycaps will not crack, but they may experience stretching. Internal testing indicates that the cracking / stretching does not affect GMK / aftermarket sets universally, so yours may fit correctly on Box switches. We recommend testing a spare keycap on your Box switches for at least two weeks, then performing a visual inspection / fitment test on Cherry MX switches, before applying the entire set.
New molds and contact designs help Box switches last approximately 25% longer than Cherry equivalents. They also include a self cleaning mechanism. You can learn more about each switch variant by following the links to Input Club’s Comparative Switch Guide below.
Note: These switches feature the new multi-location LED housings premiered in the Hako switch family.
