- key switch: Flaretech Blue
The K9 Optical comes with a much longer lifespan than traditional mechanical keyboards. This is made possible yet again by the use of optical switches that make do without metal that will oxidize and corrode over time.
Harsh, dusty conditions and even rain or liquid spills are no match for the AORUS K9 Optical. Without exposed metal connectors, it is fully splash proof, even enabling use under water. By utilizing optical Flaretech switches, the K9 eliminates a common problem with mechanical keyboards - chatter. Because it uses fully optical actuation, rather than electromechanical, dust and dirt won't adversely affect your gaming experience by causing chatter.
