Chocolate Switches - the Innovative Design from Epomaker

After studying the designs and flaws of most typical mechanical switches, we have developed our innovative switch mechanism. Our new and improved switch design helps reduce the physical wear on the switches while providing a smooth typing experience.

More Possibilities with Chocolate 5-pin Switches

Chocolate mechanical switches are made with 5 pins at the bottom. They can be installed on a PCB directly, without unsteady tilting, or on a plate above the PCB. This greatly adds more possibilities for users who are enthusiastic with customizing their own mechanical keyboards.

Compatible with MX Structure Keycaps

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

Built-in LED Slot & Durable Lifespan

Chocolate 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 80 million times of keystrokes based on a laboratory durability test, you may rest assured with the long lifespan.

Chose The Type Based On Your Needs

The Chocolate mechanical switches are designed with different configurations for various demand. Chocolate mechanical red/silver Switch comes with 50gf end force. With 4.4mm total travel, they are better for gamers; regarding Chocolate mechanical brown/blue switches, they are tactile with heavy end force of 60gf and 4.0mm total travel, so you can fully feel the pleasure of typing and gaming.

    Not really tactile

    I wanted a set of tactile switches that I was going to heavily customize. These switches are not really tactile or perhaps they are so light it's not really possible to tell. Vilent V2 are my favorites so far.

    Hello,

    Thank you for leaving a review here.

    We are so sorry that you found the switch not satisfying.

    The tactile sense can be different as everyone has their own habits when typing. But we still thank you for your valuable opinion and we will improve our switches in the new series.

    Thank you very much!

    Kind regards,
    Epomaker Team

    Rose Browns are really neat!

    First cool thing: Rose Browns let you put cherry profile keycaps on Epomaker's (and others') north-facing boards *without* keycap interference, due to the long pole raising the keycap just enough to clear the switch.

    Second cool thing: it's a great switch in its own right -- the elusive heavy tactile I didn't think existed. It neither slams your fingers into the bottom-out, nor gives your fingers a jarring ride on the way back up. These somehow avoid both pitfalls, but without being mushy, or light. The (long) spring is light enough for a crisp keypress that lets the bump assert itself, and heavy enough to make bottom-out feel like a choice, though an easy choice to let happen. Despite the description claiming 1.2 mm of pre-travel, I feel the bump starts at the very top of the keypress. It doesn't peak at the top, but it starts climbing at the top. Once over the bump, it gently lets you slide to the bottom. No slamming. No jarring. No mush. It's...clean.

    These feel in the ballpark of Drop Holy Pandas, but much less wobbly and scratchy stock. Gateron Silver Blizzards feel very similar, but are a hair smoother and snappier, as if they had better lubrication. Still, they're also higher pitched, so I went with the lower-pitched Chocolate Rose Browns. These are smooth, stable, and thocky enough that I didn't feel the need to lube or film them (filming would be a pain, given the unique housing). Sure, a couple in my batch of 105 were noticeably inconsistently lubed, but all in all, I'm really happy with these and hope they get more attention. For someone who enjoys TTC Watermelon Milkshakes (light tactiles), Durock Ceruleans, Ergo Clears, and Zealios V1 Reduxes (medium tactiles), these open up the world of the heavier tactile to me in a surprisingly pleasant way. Well done Epomaker!

    PS - For anyone interested, you can see an approximate force curve on the Epomaker NT68 Kickstarter page. I'm not saying it's wrong, but the overall feel is "rounder" than the picture might suggest.
