Vendor Description:

<p>The almighty BOX switches from Kaihua, also known as Kailh, are the pioneers of budget friendly switches! These switches are not your ordinary mx switches, they're shaped... well... a box. (lol) Due to their special mold, there is significantly less wobble all around. </p> <p>Rather than the cherry clones, the Kailh BOX line is very popular due to its clicky switches. Kailh's click bar is just on a whole new level. Offering in 3 different spring weights, and without sacrificing any of that CLICK, CLACK. </p> <p>But of course, we will be offering the clones as well, for those looking for a very beginner friendly build! <span style="text-decoration: underline;">All switches are <strong>3-pins</strong></span>, so it should be compatible with all of MX-compatible PCBs. </p> <p><em>Note #1: ONLY COMPATIBLE WITH SMD LEDs.</em></p> <p><em>Note #2: Due its special molds and structure, we DO NOT recommend lubing BOX switches, it will leak out.</em> </p> <h4>BOX Red</h4> <ul> <li>3.6mm Distance Travel</li> <li>50g Actuation</li> <li>Linear</li> </ul> <h4>BOX Black</h4> <ul> <li>3.6mm Distance Travel</li> <li>60g Actuation</li> <li>Linear</li> </ul> <h4>BOX Brown</h4> <ul> <li>3.6mm Distance Travel</li> <li>45g Actuation</li> <li>Tactile</li> </ul> <h4>BOX White</h4> <ul> <li>3.6m Distance Travel</li> <li>45g Actuation</li> <li>Clicky</li> </ul> <h4>BOX Jade</h4> <ul> <li>3.6mm Distance Travel</li> <li>50g Actuation</li> <li>Clicky</li> </ul> <h4>BOX Navy</h4> <ul> <li>3.6mm Distance Travel</li> <li>75g Actuation</li> <li>Clicky</li> </ul> <h3><span style="color: #ff2a00;">Kailh switches Review from Switch and Click</span></h3> <p><iframe title="YouTube video player" src="" height="720" width="1280" allowfullscreen="" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" frameborder="0"></iframe></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="color: #2b00ff;"><strong>Here is a guide on how many switches you'll need for different keyboard sizes (The guide is a reference, but some keyboards market a certain layout even though they require a few more or fewer switches.
