[GB] PURPLE/CLEAR ZEALIO SWITCHES (Complete)
« on: Tue, 25 August 2015, 15:35:43 »
It's finally here! Purple (Tactile) & Clear (Linear) Zealio switches are now available here: http://zealpc.net/collections/switches

Geekhackers V3 Lube will also be offered with this GB! If you're an enthusiast that strives for 100% in everything, then I highly suggest you pick some lube with your switch order!

***Please order in multiples of 10 to make my life easier. Thank you!***

Zealio switches will come in 6 variants


  • 62g - Linear (Clear stem)
  • 65g - Linear (Clear stem)
  • 67g - Linear (Clear stem)
  • 62g - Tactile (Purple ergo-clear stem)
  • 65g - Tactile (Purple ergo-clear stem)
  • 67g - Tactile (Purple ergo-clear stem)


Please make sure to read up on the different tactile weights in the reviews below! These switches are not to be directly compared to ErgoClears! Due to the smoother sliders, the weights may feel a bit "lighter".



Price per switch is $0.75 USD. Once I receive the package, Price will retail @ $1/switch.

4% "Tax" will be added to your order to cover PayPal & handling fees.




If you haven't been keeping up with the latest news, have a read here and on KeyChatter!

As a thank you to the supporters of this project, I'll be giving away 1 Zealio themed BINGECAP (still in original bubble mailer!) to 10 lucky purchasers! Make sure to tick the check-box on the order form!



*If the site does not automatically provide you with shipping details at checkout, please send me an email and indicate where you're from and how many switches you'd like to purchase. (Mostly for orders outside of USA & Canada over 1kg).

Orders Close September 30, 2015 at 11:59:59pm PST!

I have a bag of Gateron blues I bought for my G80-1800 Leeku build. I was going to stash those and use these instead, but to put these in a PCB-only board with a plastic case seems like overkill. I think I'll use the blues for my Leeku and maybe just buy enough of these for a 60% board.

Sorry to clutter the thread with noob questions, but:

Thinking about getting these for my first full custom, and am intrigued by the option of RGB leds. But the switch accepting the RGB leds doesn't mean they'd work with whatever PCB/controller/etc, right? Might just order these anyway, but am curious whether the RGB led thing is going to matter outside of putting these on a board that already supports them. Am I way off base?

Currently there aren't any custom PCBs that allow for RGB LED control, AFAIK. Zeal has said he was working on them, but I don't think there was a time frame, so it could be a ways off.

Just to add to this, the switches will still work fine with single color LEDs. If your PCB has bottom-mount RGB LEDs you'll probably get some decent shine through the switch, depending on the case design and how the LEDs are mounted.

Interesting, nice to see a ergo-clear style switch. Expensive though for sure.

I guess it's a value add with the clear tops already included though.

Would get some to try but I already have an excess of tactile greys  :p Wallethack

If I liked MX Browns and MX Clears, but sometimes found clears a little too heavy, and browns a little too light, which of these if any would be in between these two?

62g or 65g. 62g would be closer to browns, and 65g closer to Clears in tactile feel.

reading the reviews it sounded like 65g was the sweet spot in comparison to Ergo Clears @ 62g, due to the smoothness of Gateron.

I think I have a broken memory, because I thought I read these springs were sourced from Sprit, but I can't find that anywhere. Are these Gateron springs or are they from another source? I already have 65g gold plated Sprit springs so I went with 62g and 67g and could switch (hue hue) if necessary.

Last I knew, Zeal sourced his springs from Sprit and then got springs manufactured to match Sprits springs.  I could be wrong, but that is what I heard...

I used to resell sprit springs. The current gold plated springs found in Zealios are tweaked to my spec, modified and/or new, such as the 67g weight. None of them have the same coil ratio/length as sprit's.

Could you make a closeup disassemble picture of both linear/tactile switches? I would like to see the stems. Thanks!
Annnd ... could we vancouverites pick it up to save shipping money to buy more switch? :D
Will PM for local pickup info. Stem pics will come soon.

I'm going to spend the whole month wondering if 67g was the right call, or if I should have gone with 65g instead.

reading the reviews it sounded like 65g was the sweet spot in comparison to Ergo Clears @ 62g, due to the smoothness of Gateron.

I think I have a broken memory, because I thought I read these springs were sourced from Sprit, but I can't find that anywhere. Are these Gateron springs or are they from another source? I already have 65g gold plated Sprit springs so I went with 62g and 67g and could switch (hue hue) if necessary.

I have found 65g to be the sweet spot for me.

Last I knew, Zeal sourced his springs from Sprit and then got springs manufactured to match Sprits springs.  I could be wrong, but that is what I heard...

I used to resell sprit springs. The current gold plated springs found in Zealios are tweaked to my spec, modified and/or new, such as the 67g weight. None of them have the same coil ratio/length as sprit's.


SO they're just slightly different? Or does this mean i need to buy all three weights? haha

They're slightly different. 67g is sort of a "new" weight.
