Keychron has just unveiled its latest innovation, the K3 Max – a compact 75% layout mechanical keyboard that boasts not only a low-profile design but also the convenience of hot-swappable switches. With 84 keys, this keyboard is perfect for those who value portability without compromising functionality.
Keychron K3 Max Features and Specs
Connectivity and Switch Options
The K3 Max offers versatile connectivity, supporting Bluetooth, a 2.4 GHz wireless dongle for low-latency performance, and a USB-C cable. Equipped with Gateron Red, Blue, or Brown switches, the hot-swappable version allows users to effortlessly switch to other low-profile switches, offering a customizable typing experience.
Design and Adjustability
Designed with user comfort in mind, the keyboard features two flip-out legs with rubber feet for stability and three adjustable angles (2.5°, 4.2°, and 6.5°). The aluminum frame not only ensures sturdiness but also keeps the keyboard lightweight.
Customization and Illumination
Powered by an ARM Cortex-M4 processor and QMK firmware, the K3 Max provides customization options through VIA software or the website. Users can easily remap keys, assign macros, and personalize RGB backlighting with 18 colors and animation effects. For a subtler look, white LED backlights are also available.
The keyboard comes with PBT double-shot keycaps, and users can opt for see-through keycaps for illuminated legends. Both Windows and macOS modifier keys are included, and a physical switch facilitates seamless layout switching without the need for remapping.
Versatility and Battery Life
Connecting to up to three devices via Bluetooth, the K3 Max enables effortless switching between desktops, laptops, or tablets with a simple keystroke. Impressively, the keyboard boasts a battery life of up to 78 hours with backlights off (approximately three weeks between charges) and 40 hours with backlights on. Users can switch to the USB connection for uninterrupted use while charging.
