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, which makes it more suitable for long hours of typing; radiant red comes with 53gf operating force, 3.5mm total travel, better for gamers; regarding lavender purple, it’s tactile with an 18mm extension spring, so you can fully feel the pleasure of typing and gaming. The sakura switches are equipped with dustproof structure and POM bottom case.

    Great switch. Good price. Fast shipping.

    It’s one of my personal favourite switches! I highly recommend it. When I ordered it it was supposed to take a few weeks (I think 4) but it arrived in a week and a half. I highly recommended these switches.

    Good Switch, Great Price, but 3 month shipping

    Let me just make this clear, the switches are great out of the box if you are a someone who just wants a nice switch which is much better than your average stock cherry/gateron switch. However if you are looking to lube/film the switch, just take note that not much will change and if the film is too thick, it will not let the switch close properly (My films were Deskey Switch Films). Overall, great switch with great packaging for the price!

    However, my product was failed to be sent to me 3 times. I'll explain why. (Heads up, it takes about 2-3 weeks for Epomaker to ship to Australia from previous experiences)
    1. I ordered right before Chinese new year, so Epomaker was not sending anything out for a week I believe and they did not contact about me about this issue until I emailed them a month later. They explained the issue and I happily accepted the mistake, they claim to send it out straight away now.
    2. Another month passes and I submit another email about the lack of tracking information. They claimed that there was a confusion and that they are "checking the package and will reship it."
    3. Again, this time 2 weeks pass and I am quite frustrated as I was expecting some kind of shipping update. This final email, they replied that the pandemic is impacting the delivery, so I took their word for it and just hoped that the product is in transit.
    Then 2.5 weeks later, the product finally arrives and I can enjoy the switch.

    TLDR; Product took 3 months to arrives instead of 2-3 weeks due to a bunch of unlucky complications pressumably.

    After this experience, my view on Epomaker has definitely changed. I used to look forward to see what products I could buy from Epomaker, however as time passed, new and better products arise. I still recommend Epomaker, as they have free shipping to most countries and they have a good selection of budget products.

    I'm quite the keyboard nerd, so if you'd like to discuss more keyboard stuff or any questions about this review, feel free to contact me via Discord!

    Have a great day!


    Akko matcha greens are wonderful

    I decided to buy akko’s matcha greens because of it’s pricepoint. I have NO regrets and am so happy I decided to buy them. They sounded fantastic as stock switches and were much more smoother than I expected. At first glance there didn’t seem to be any spring ping at all but i decided to lube the springs just in case it might be an issue later. Even doing just that improved the feel a little bit and I love my switches even more now. I like a low profile keeb so being able to see the pretty green peek out from underneath my keycaps is super nice too. Overall 10/10 and I recommend these switches to all of my friends

    Ernestas Aušvicas

    very good will buy again

    Borna M

    Good budget if you lube, fortunately dont need to film the switches
