New “Cap” Switch Mold

The Gateron Cap V2 Switch utilizes a new mold that is similar to a cap, that’s why we named it “Cap Switch”. The upgraded structure for the new switch series offers a smooth and tactile typing experience. It’s also fully compatible with 2-Pin/4-Pin LED, RGB-LED, and mechanical keyboard hot-swappable versions without modifications.

More Stable

The stem post is enlarged and hollowed out to make the switch more stable with almost no wobbliness. This first-generation gold-plated contact offers better oxidation resistance and a product lifespan of 60 million cycles.

Unique Stem Design

Based on aerodynamics theory, the stem with 0.4-sized tiny holes can release excess air and reduce resistance when the key switch is triggered, making it smoother.

Gateron Factory Self-lubricated Switches

Factory Pre-lubed

The switches are well lubed before leaving the factory, which generally improves the smoothness and stability. There is no need for you to lubricate it again.

Note: Cap Blue Switch is unlubed.

Gateron Cap V2 yellow

I recently acquired the Gateron Cap V2 switches for my mechanical keyboard, and overall, I'm quite impressed with their quality and performance. However, there are some aspects worth noting.

Firstly, the build quality of these switches is exceptional, offering durability suitable for heavy usage. They provide a smooth and crisp typing experience, although they do have a slightly louder "clack" than expected. If you're aiming for a quieter "thock," opting for the Milky Yellow cap might be a better choice.

The springs in these switches are on the lighter side, resulting in a less snappy return action, which is normal for keypresses under 50g. While some switches exhibited spring ping, applying GPL105 grease seemed to alleviate the issue, though its long-term effectiveness remains uncertain.

One standout feature is the copper-plated steel springs, enhancing their longevity. It's advisable to use lighter lubricants for the stem due to the weaker springs, preventing potential sticking issues.

Considering their price point, the Gateron Cap V2 switches offer decent quality manufacturing. However, the plastic composition tends to produce a louder sound, necessitating additional foam padding within the keyboard housing for noise dampening.

These switches may not be suitable for aggressive gaming due to their lighter springs, but they are adequate for office work. However, they are not recommended for high-speed typing.

In conclusion, the Gateron Cap V2 switches provide a good balance of performance and affordability, with some minor considerations regarding sound and spring strength. They are a viable option for office use but may not meet the demands of competitive gaming or rapid typing.

Cap v2 browns - probably the best light tactile switches that are not too loud

Got a set of the Cap V2 browns, since I always wanted the super light tactile feeling of browns minus that rattly and clacky sound that is usually associated with them. For gat brown lovers, these are probably the best iteration. I have a set of the G-pro browns, and while smooth and deep sounding, they are still loud. These are just perfect, and they do come with some spring ping. However, that can be fixed with some free time and oil. I didn't bother lubing them, just bag oiled the springs and BOOM! They turn into near endgame or probably endgame light linear switches (atleast for me). They have a mellow sound which is on the thockier side thanks to the denser top housing and the extra noise is completely removed due to the hollow stem. It honestly feels like I am done searching for light linears. Package takes some time without the express option, so if you need them soon, go for the express shipping.
