A Novelkeys x Kailh collaboration. The Thick Click BOX Jade switch features a thicker clickbar than regular clicky switches. The tactile feedback is very noticeable and the click sound is deeper and heavier than a Pale Blue. It's crisp, sharp, and does not wear out.
We do not sell old stock, this is the new V2 of the Box Jade. V2 received a 9/10 sound rating by ThereminGoat. V2 has a solid bottom instead of a hole.

Dongguan Kaihua Electronics Co., known in the USA as Kailh, is a manufacturer of top-of-the-line mechanical keyboard switches and is famous in particular for their box switches.

What is the SwitchCaptain Authentication program?
We are keyboard and mice enthusiasts ourselves, we have spent hours (perhaps days, okay fine, weeks) trying to find particular keycaps, switches, lubricants, and more. Too often we stumble across knock-off products, poor quality components (that can do real damage), and sometimes even stores passing non-genuine products as the real thing! Enough is enough. So we got together and decided on a plan moving forward to stop fake products from hurting all the different folks involved.
The SwitchCaptain Authentication program includes a holographic seal on every item we sell, each seal has a unique code that lets you verify your product came from the original brand.
We want you to know that if you buy a product from us that what you get is real.
Let us be clear:
- All branded products we sell are bought from the manufacturer directly, we do not try to save a buck and purchase from a supplier (which we find super suspicious in the first place). If a manufacturer won't sell to us direct we will not have it in the store. This includes big names as well as up-and-comers.
- This also means that manufacturers ship directly to us, we inspect for quality, package them in sealed bags (so they cannot be tainted), code them into our authentication database, and ship it to the customer (that's you!). We do not allow 'middle-persons' to broker any product, as this opens up an opportunity for manipulation.
- Any product from SwitchCaptain without an authentication sticker is counterfeit or repurposed without authorization. Even our refurbished products are authorized.
- We require all brands to provide us with proof of any certifications they say they have. The onus is still on them of course. If a manufacturer cannot produce for example their RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive) when they are supposed to be able to, we will not work with them. While we do not know of all licenses, permits, and certifications, we try our best to keep an eye out.

Bought these as apparently the keyboard community likes them. They’re incredible for the price and were exactly the feel I was looking for. Would buy again.
I ordered these and some Box Navy switches because I thought I wanted a heavier spring.. however, the Box Jades are perfect out of the box.
The spring is a bit lighter than the Navy switch, and the sound is also a little deeper compared to the Navy.
Def. my favorite clicky so far. =]
Got these for my gf who types a lot of papers, but thats not where the story ends. I never liked clicky switches until i was type testing in her newly built keyboard. My gosh are these amazing. Now im using these for gaming as well. Cant say enough about how responsive they are!
Love these switches man. Had the original Box Jades and was curious about the new V2's here. Sound is pretty much the same to my ears, but I do notice that the switch feel is noticeably smoother (outside of the absolutely stunning clickbar, which is just as tactile and clicky as the original). Pretty darn tight tolerances, pretty minimal wobble. Not too tiring to type on while still having that very satisfying tactile snap with the clickbar. Just wouldn't advise using these in a public space because they are, indeed, loud as heck. Not the best switches to use in the office unless you work with other keyboard enthusiasts that wouldn't mind. Also, they came in a very nice tin and the switches were all in good condition.
