Thermaltake is expanding its peripheral line-up this month with a new wireless keyboard. Today, the company officially announced the W1 Wireless Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, delivering Cherry MX switches free of wires.
The W1’s main selling feature is the wireless connectivity. There are three different connection modes that can be used. 2.4GHz wireless is available for low latency in a range of 10 meters – this mode is also battery life friendly, with Thermaltake claiming it can last over one month on a charge. The other wireless mode is of course Bluetooth, or you can plug it into a device directly via USB-C.
The other key selling point here is that this is a mechanical keyboard, sporting Cherry’s tried and true Cherry MX switches. There will be two options for the W1, Cherry MX Blue of Cherry MX Red. Blue switches are clicky and tactile, while Red switches are linear and make no noise.
Finally, for durability, this keyboard ships with PBT keycaps, which are more resilient against solvents, meaning the caps will last longer without wearing down. The Thermaltake W1 wireless mechanical keyboard is available via Thermaltake’s own store for $109.99.
