【Japan GB】Class80 BLE version
【Japan GB】Class80 BLE version
About the Class80：
The Class80 builds on the big bezel design of the Class65 and intensify the chonk. It measures 39.34cm*18.9cm and the big boy weighs about 3.5kg unbuilt. In addition, we made a 1.6cm slope on the front edge to make the typing angle of the board to 7°.
For colors we retained the much loved retro E-white and Ano-black of the Class65 and added a FAMICOM inspired E-Red to the selection.
Layout: Select between WK or WKL
- Hot-swap PCB only supports ANSI and 7U spacebar Tsangan, stepped caps is possible;
- Soldered PCB supports 6.25U spacebar, 1.25 mods or Tsangan, stepped caps, ANSI or ISO both supported.
A set of retro inspired keycaps set as optional extras can be purchased with the Class80 (NOT INCLUDED IN THE STANDARD KIT). The color is close to GMK L9 and U9.
PCB: The new double “S” on the PCB leaf-spring-mount retains the ultra-soft typing experience of the original class65 but also allows the PCB to be top mounted.
We will offer both Wired and Bluetooth Version of the PCB, wired PCB supports QMK and VIA, Bluetooth software support is provided by Dana through the program LDN (download here).
For wired PCB, there are Hot-swap and soldered version, the Bluetooth PCB only comes with Hot-swap.
(Class80 firmware:Download here)
The Bluetooth version comes with a 5000mAh battery included in the kit.
Mounting styles: the Class80 supports 3 different mounting styles
- Top mount with plate
- PCB gasket mount with plate
- PCB gasket mount plateless
Plate: Standard kit comes with PC plate and only supports PCB mounted stabs.
Extra Plates comes in 10 variations which can be purchased separately here
The standard wired kit includes the Buzzer and Solenoid. Unfortunately, the Bluetooth PCB can not be used with the buzzer and solenoid, so we excluded the parts from the kit to reduce the cost.
For even more retro feel, we added a "Class80" sticker badge made out of stainless steel to the standard kit, which you can freely choose where to stick it on your class80.
last but not least, we included a keyboard carrying case to the standard kit, since we know it’s not easy to find a case for a such chonky boy. You are welcome.
