Paw is an arrow cluster macropad, aimed at expanding any desk setup with increased functionality, sleek design and convenience.
With onboard Bluetooth, brass accents and a sandblasted polycarbonate case, Paw will be a standout piece no matter where you use it.

Note: Due to licensing conflicts, Paw will not ship, nor be compatible with, main QMK. It will ship with ZMK, and Bluetooth-first firmware that has more permissive licensing and better battery life optimizations. A QMK fork will be available to self-compile if you would like to pursue that method. Please note that ZMK will not have feature parity with QMK, though it is being actively developed and maintained. You can find more information here: https://zmkfirmware.dev
150mah battery (approximate usage rates: 30 days of active use and 60 days standby)
Note: values are approximate and subject to change based on usage and firmware used

go away sam

11-9-20 - Additional note that unfortunately due to strict import regulations of many international countries, any order that is not in North America will not be shipped with a battery and will be given a refund for the cost of the battery. See links below for international options to purchase batteries. We apologize for the inconvenience. Note that this will also be listed on the store page at launch.

https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/lipo-battery-pack?variant=20429081991
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001226383784.html

If neither of these links ship to your country we recommend a 402025 lithium ion battery.

11-9-20 - small update to the artisan listing, clarified the types and amount available.
