K2 is a super tactile mechanical keyboard featuring the largest battery seen in a mechanical keyboard yet. With 84-keys, K2 is a perfect combination of full-sized mechanical keyboard and ten-keyless keyboard. With dual connectivity (wireless or wired) and both Windows and Mac layouts, the K2 is a perfect fit for any desk. It easily pairs with up to three devices at once and increase your productivity.
Designed for versatility, the K2 connects via Bluetooth or with a cable. It can connect with your phone, laptop or iPad. Connect wirelessly with up to three devices at once and switch between screens for efficient multitasking and increased productivity. You can also use our type-C cable to connect the keyboard to your devices. Switch between the operating systems with just a toggle slide on the K2.
K2 is perfectly compatible with all operating systems (OS) from Mac/iOS to Android to Windows, and you can easily switch among different OS.
K2 is one of the few mechanical keyboards featuring Mac layout media keys. It allows you to use all the same media keys as a conventional macOS. Every K2 keyboard comes with 3 specific keycaps for Mac and Windows, respectively.
Setting a best example of efficient space usage, K2 has a compact 84 key design by retaining all the essential functional keys like Page Up/Down, Home, End, and Screen capture (command+shift+4) which are important for your productivity. With N-key rollover (NKRO on wired mode only) you can register as many keys as you can press at once without missing out characters.
We had a strong desire to design a wireless mechanical keyboard that everyone would love to use for everyday work. The CNC processed streamline aluminum frame and the plastic frame perfectly represent minimalism and protection to K2.
Curved profile keycaps create an unbeatable finger touch feeling and the 6-degree typing angle is the most comfortable hand typing experience.
No matter what you like -- linear, clicky or something in between -- we’ve got you covered with three Gateron switch options (Blue, Brown, Red). With a lifespan of 50 million keystrokes, we want to make sure that you experience the same feedback for every keystroke.
Check out above video to decide which switch you will pick for your K2 keyboard.
Keychron K2 is engineered with more than 15 types of RGB backlight and comes with different styles (flashing, breathing, or static etc) which will match up to your mood. Simply press the lightbulb key or fn + right arrow to achieve it.
Please see above is a video shows all the RGB lighting and static lighting effects of the K2.
With a battery of 4000 mAh K2 has 25% more battery capacity than Apple Magic keyboard, 2.7x more than Logitech Craft Keyboard, 4x more than Hexgears X1 and two times more than the Keychron K1 Keyboard. This ensures that K2 lasts as long as it can with a single charge.

Keychron was formed in 2017 by a group of keyboard enthusiasts who have extensive experience in keyboard manufacturing. The group consists of designers, marketers, and production experts. Our core team member, Will Ye has 9 years of experience in keyboard production and related businesses and Sven Zhu has 10 years of experience in industrial design. We’ve dedicated ourselves to creating the most sophisticated mechanical keyboard with a minimalist design.
We’ve partnered with our supplier, Chuand Science and Technology, for supply chain management and production. With 20 years of experience, Chuand has produced top-notch keyboards for many well-known keyboard brands over the years (Click here for factory photos). With the fantastic and inspiring experience of our previous K1 keyboard Kickstarter project, we can assure you that the Keychron K2 keyboard will never fail you.
Share our project with your friends and family who would be interested in a perfect mechanical keyboard. They’ll appreciate you for your kind suggestion and helping them save their money.
This project is promoted by Jellop, the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 600+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $300MM raised between them.
Risks and challenges
Before launching our project on Kickstarter, we’ve made multiple prototypes for our keyboard. We went through multiple rounds of manufacturing feedback with our partners and built a detailed schedule. We’re working with a very experienced manufacturer in the industry which has created top quality keyboards over the past 10 years.
We already have existing technical team and partners to cooperate with K2's product design and production. The above videos and pictures shown on the campaign page are working prototypes of the pilot run. We are committed to delivering Keychron K2 on time with the highest quality.
