Thermaltake has announced a new wireless gaming keyboard, the W1. The keyboard is capable of connecting with up to three devices.
The W1 is based on a black color scheme where the Thermaltake logo is situated on the upper left corner. An ergonomic wrist rest has also been included in the design to provide the user with comfort during long hours of use. It offers three methods of connection, a wired connection through the USB, a wireless connection through Bluetooth 4.2, or the 2.4 GHz wireless technology.
When the keyboard is in wireless mode, it takes its power from two AA batteries. The battery can last up to 1.5 months when using the wireless 2.4 GHz connection, and it can last up to 2.5 months on Bluetooth 4.2. The 2.4 GHz connection has a 1ms response time. You can simultaneously press Fn and the number keys from 1 to 3 to switch up to three Bluetooth connections.
The wireless keyboard can either use the Cherry MX Blue or the Cherry MX Red key switches. The Cherry MX Blue has a responsive design and a 2.2 mm actuation point. The Cherry MX Red is perfect for people requiring a keyboard for both work and play. Both the key switches are rated for up to 50 million keystrokes.
Thermaltake did not give any pricing information yet.
