Keychron K4 | 96% Compact Wireless Mechanical Keyboard

$746,358

7,088


Introducing Keychron K4, a 96% wireless mechanical keyboard. It has full-size functionality in a compact design with 100 necessary keys. Featuring two premium switch options enabling peak productivity and a great tactile typing experience. It has a minimalist, unique, and sturdy design. With 15+ RGB backlights and a large battery capacity of 4000mAh, K4 is a power-packed keyboard for all keyboard enthusiasts.

After studying the mechanical keyboard market for years, we found a gap in the market for good wireless mechanical keyboards. The K4 keyboard works flawlessly in wireless mode and while using Bluetooth for a mess-free desk. We use Broadcom Bluetooth technology to ensure good compatibility and a trustworthy and continuously stable connection. For gamers and people who prefer using a wired keyboard, the K4 also has USB Type-C. Enjoy the keyboard in whichever style you like.

K4 is 100% compatible with multiple operating systems. Perfectly suitable for macOS, Windows, iOS, as well as Android. There are over a million Mac users yet very few mechanical keyboards in the market support the Mac layout. Keychron is amongst the few that provide Mac multimedia keys to you with a user-friendly typing experience. It also comes with an extra set of 3 keycaps that allows you to switch between Mac and Windows OS effortlessly. And for Linux users, we also have a dedicated user group to help with the experience.


Connect with up to 3 devices wirelessly and effortlessly. Press Fn + 1/ 2 / 3 to pair up with different devices and switch to the specific one you would like to type on. Multitasking like a pro.


Our R&D team found there is still a need for a number pad for programmers, editors, and some office workers. K4 is the solution to this, we included all these keys in a compact design for a minimalist desk vibe.  A unique combination of both design and productivity.

Not just that, the exclusive Pantone series of keycaps differentiates K4 easily from other mechanical keyboards. K4 has a sturdy body and 8.5-degree rubber feet that offer a comfortable and pleasant typing experience. If you need the palm rest shown in the following image, you can order from our website after the campaign finished.



K4 gives you the freedom to select your preferred switch style. Select between LK Optical and Gateron switches based on the functionality and typing experience that you are looking for. 

A switch style designed particularly with gamers in mind. Lightning-fast and precise. The latest Optical switches enhance the typing experience with the responsiveness of 0.2ms latency. With the durability of 100 million keystrokes which is double than that of competing switches. 

Razer Huntsman is an iconic keyboard utilizing optical switches for gamers in the current market, however, the expensive price deterred people who are interested to give it a try. At Keychron, we are trying to deliver the quick responsive typing experience with the same performance as Huntsman for all mechanical keyboard enthusiasts. 



More powerful and more durable to ensure high productivity. And it also comes with 2 tactile options for you to choose - Red and Blue. With the linear red switch and clicky blue switch, pick up the one that suits your daily routine.


 * This image is only to display the switches, not the final design. Each of the keyboards will ship with only one kind of switch. The optical switch is not soldered on the PCB board, so it can be swappable. However, we don’t recommend you to do it often as the switches are plugged on the plate very tight.

For the lovers of both classic clicky and smooth typing, K4 also has a Gateron switch option to select. In Gateron switches you can select from linear, clicky or something in between with three Gateron switch options - Red, Blue, Brown, and Yellow.

The K4 comes with a battery capacity of 4000mAh, which is 25% more than the Apple keyboard. The K4 will last up to 4 weeks with backlights disabled, depending on hours of your daily usage. The rechargeable K4 battery is made up of Li-polymer that is safe and trusted. And it supports the quickest charging speed among mechanical keyboard, that is 5V 2A. It takes only 3hrs for you to get K4 fully-charged. 


K4 is engineered with more than 15 types of RGB backlight options that you can use to play with. A keyboard that is always in sync with your mood to keep you happy and productive. Easily cycle to different backlight schemes using the light bulb key.

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 K4'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 K4 on time with the highest quality. Please feel free to shoot us an email to hello@keychron.com if there is an inquiry.
