Aukey may be known to many as a charging accessory brand. However, it has also branched out into gaming-related products as well, which include Fortnite-themed keycaps, RGB mice and headsets. Now, it has debuted its take on the RGB mechanical keyboard as well.

Its 104-key variant is rated to reduce ghosting, has a steel chassis and even its own in-house switches. Aukey claims to have developed its Blues based on gamer feedback. They are apparently associated with rapid responses, "precise" feedback and to withstand up to 50 million presses each. 

They also produce audible clicks, whereas the Aukey Red Switches are rated for a more linear experience and are touted to be responsive even though they lack feedback. Keyboards made with either new switch are available on Amazon for US$54.99.

Aukey has also launched a Sakura Pink special edition of the same new accessory. It has 108 keys, Blue switches and is, of course, still RGB. The brand did not reveal the price of this limited run, although it did project that its release to Amazon will take place in October 2020.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
