What is AKKO Custom Series (CS)

This series is the newly designed switches for customers who have specific needs. Different from traditional switches, AKKO CS has made some improvements based on customer’s experience. It contains distinct features. Unlike AKKO V2 switches, CS switches feature a spiral spring design. We have made six types of CS switches, tactile ocean blue and lavender Purple/linear matcha green/linear rose red, vintage white and radiant red. No matter you are in favor of which type, we cover it all.

About Lubes

It is always subjective when it comes down to the level of lubes that need to be applied on individual switch. Meanwhile, lubing the switches by machine might also affect the lifespan of switches. Thus, concerning those factors, AKKO CS switches will not come factory-lubed at the moment. AKKO CS switches do have a thin layer of dry film in the shrapnel for lubrication purpose, but there is no lube at all on any other parts such as top, stem or spring.

Compatible with MX Structure Keycaps

AKKO CS switches are designed with general MX structure so that they can fit most keycaps sets with (X) cross stem. This greatly improves the compatibility and you can feel free to change the switch and remake your own keyboard

Built-in LED Slot&Durable Lifespan

AKKO CS switches are equipped with north-facing LED slot for LED modification. It is also compatible with SMD LED. This provides more fun feature and options for those who are DIYers. With a lifespan of approximate 50 million times of keystrokes based on laboratory durability test, you are rest assured with the long lifespan.

Chose The Type Based On Your Needs

These extra three types of AKKO CS switches are designed with different configurations to meed various needs. Vintage white comes with an extremely light actuation force of 35g with 22mm extension spring makes it more suitable for long hours of typing;Radiant red comes with 53gf end force, 3.5mm total travel, better for gamers; regarding lavender purple, it’s more tactile and even better than ocean blue switch, so you can fully feel the pleasure of typing and gaming.

    Nice switches more 10/10

    Good for the moment.

    What i care about most is sound (or lack thereof) and mileage.
    They are very silent which is a big plus and i like that.
    I only have had them for about a month, so i cannot know about their reliability, but they seem good enough for now.

    What i dislike is the fact that the colour messes up with the LED backlight of the keyboard (because they are green) and i cannot get the same exact colours i had with some black switches i had, but it isnt that crucial.

    A very good switch for the price

    This switch has become famous recently because of its low price and really good feel and sound. Thought I'd write a little about it for anyone curious. I'll by comparing this to gateron milky yellows throughout.

    Looks:
    This part is definitely not important for the performance of a switch. These look pretty cool though, I really like the dark green. It comes with a transparent top housing and an opaque bottom. Packaging is very good too, it comes in a nice plastic tray in a cardboard box.

    Lubing:
    I lube with a thick layer of 205g2 and use the switches for a week until the excess sheds off. Imo this is great for linears if you don't mind the switches feeling mushy for a while. Definitely controversial but I've done this many times and it works well for me.

    As it uses kailh-style top housings (which i really like), the switch is really tight and films aren't necessary. Even if you try, the housing won't close fully. It's easy to open using some sharp tweezers.

    Feel:
    In the stock form, a small bit of scratch is there but nothing serious. It sounds more like a slight rubbing and not sandpapering the entrance to hell. Pretty decent actually. Definitely smoother than gateron yellows and with considerably less spring ping. The bottom out feels a lot more substantial and less 'plasticy' than the yellows. There is some spring crunch and contact leaf sound but nothing out of the ordinary for a stock switch.

    When you lube these though (at least with my bizzare method), you think someone is fooling you by switching it out with another switch. All if not most of the scratch disappears. The switch somehow feels tighter and more coherent, I don't know how to describe it. It's slightly better than lubed milky yellows in terms of smoothness.

    Something I really like is the bottom out. The longboi stems make it very satisfying and sharp, which in my opinion is one of the weak points of yellows. The clack is not divine but is is good.

    Overall, for the price, it's nothing short of amazing.

    Weighting:
    These switches operate at about 50gf, which I'd consider to be a medium-light linear. These supposedly have 'progressive springs', I don't really understand what they mean by that, but these are pretty good springs. They might not be the best for everyone, but the weighting is relatively linear until near the end of the travel, where is seems to offer a bit more resistance. This makes it possible to type comfortably with a light bottom out. Whether you like this or not is up to you.

    Contrary to this, the springs on the yellows feel almost perfectly linear throughout the travel. Again, this is more of a preference thing so choose what you like.

    Sound + Other Things:
    The sound is pretty good, with a sharp clack at the bottom and barely any audible scratch. I can't comment about it here, listen to a few typing tests on youtube.

    One thing I don't like too much is the top-out. It feels slightly rattly on some switches. Unless you try you probably won't be able to hear it though.

    Using this on PBT DSA keycaps, the sound is more clack and less thock. Getting some ABS SA soon, I'll add to this later.

    Conclusion:
    For the price of $10 for 45 switches, there's basically nothing that can beat it. It's main competitor is gateron yellows, and the differences when lubed are just preferences.

    Mainly focusing on the spring weighting and bottom out. Both switches are very good for the price. Based on my opinion though, I prefer these over the gateron yellows, mainly because of the long pole stems and being slightly smoother.

    Budget king tactile switches - Akko CS Lavender Purple

    These tactile switches are probably the best ones you can find for this price. After modding my Akko 3098 keyboard with Foam + Tempest, these switches insanely popped. Lubed with Tribosys 3204, and they’re one of the most satisfying, nice sounding switches in my collection. Can wholly recommend if you want a good tactile switch with a faster actuation for gaming.
