Kailh Box Black

Updated on: 27 July, 2021

Kailh Box switches feature a unique box design to the stem. The design keeps the stem protected to provide an IP56 rating for dust and moisture. The box design of the stem also reduces any keycap wobble. I find the Kailh Box Black to be more scratchy than Cherry MX or Gateron Black. I recommend you look elsewhere for linear switches.
