Zealios Purple Switches
These are the new Zealio switches.
They have reduced wobble that’s less than Holy Pandas while managing to be even more tactile with a bigger, smoother bump as well. Bump starts at the very top of the keypress, no pre-travel.
They have transparent housings and are available in 62g, 65g, and 78g. They are MX compatible and rated at “bottom out” force, not actuation.
- 62g – tactile non-clicky
- 65g – tactile non-clicky
- 78g – tactile non-clicky
Please note that PCB mounted switches can still be used in many plates mounted keyboards. As long as your PCB underneath has 2 extra holes next to the center post, it will support PCB Mounted switches and add extra rigidity to your build. If your PCB does not have the extra holes, then you can simply cut the small plastic legs off to make them Plate-Mount!
The Milky PCB & Plate Mounted 65g Zealio offered here is recommended for first time builders that are afraid of over-heating the pin and deforming the transparent plastic housing, which could result in a defective Zealio. The milky bottom helps prevent deformation and is more heat resistant than transparent plastic. Plate mounted Zealio is also an option for customers that do not want to spend the time to clip the PCB mounted legs off when installing into off-the-shelf keyboards.
