A Break Down of the Keyboard Switches and Actuation Force 

Is it the season of changing your keyboard switches? These 16 keyboard switches are all available online at Amazon, eBay, and Mechanical Keyboards. If you’re wondering what Actuation Force is, it is the force required for the key to be recognized by the keyboard. We have the heaviest key switches and the lightest key switch in this table. These key switches range from 80g to 60g to 50g and down to 35g.

For the heaviest, our 1st, Cherry MX Green Key Switch, requires an actuation force of 80g, costing about $10.00. Wherefore, the lightest is our 16th, Gateron Clear Key Switches, which requires 35g of actuation force for $8.50. As for their prices, the highest cost was $125.00 from the brand Holy Panda in 2nd place. The lowest has four products tied at $7.50: Matias Quiet Click Mechanical Switch, Kailh Blue Key Switches, Kailh Speed Copper Key Switches, and Matias Quiet Linear Mechanical Switch. There are still more in the market, and we hope we’ve helped you a bit!
