Warranty

Keychron products are covered by a warranty.

Note: The warranty is provided in addition to the rights and remedies granted to you by the seller or granted to you under applicable legislation. Therefore, any remedy (e.g. rectification, claim for damages, right to terminate the contract) granted by Keychron or by the law applicable remains unaffected, e.g., the right to claim lack of conformity within 12 months from the date of purchase.

The warranty covers all defects compared to the specification of the product in question that may arise in the product within the below-mentioned warranty period, however, with the exceptions set out below.

Unless otherwise explicitly stated in documents provided in connection with the purchase, the warranty period is twelve (12) months. For all Pre-Orders, the warranty period is twelve (12) months, but the warranty will start after the product is received by the customer.

The warranty period starts when the product(s) is delivered to the first end-user. This warranty does not extend to any product whose serial number has been defaced or altered, just as the warranty will cease if you make modifications in the software not authorized by Keychron.

Note: If it appears as “Delivered” on the courier’s website (i.e., Delivery) for more than 3 months, the delivery details on the courier’s website will be deleted. The courier will not provide any compensation to us for these orders; that’s why we can’t provide any refund if the client does not inform us to investigate the parcel via email 3 months after it has been “Delivered” on the courier’s website.

The following are NOT covered by the warranty:

Accessories and spare parts (including but not limited to cables, carrying case etc.) sold separately i.e. not bundled with a Keychron product.

– Defects that have been caused by wrongful use, incorrect installation, incorrect repairs/modifications, or maladjustment of the product, or neglect, including but not limited to “burn in”.

– Defects that have been caused by lightning, fire, water, or other events of force majeure.

– Batteries will be covered by three (3) months warranty.

With the herein stated exceptions to claim under the warranty, you may contact support@keychron.in if a defect covered by the warranty arises in your product within the warranty period. Keychron will rectify the defect by, at our choice, either repairing the defective product or replacing it with a product of same or similar type and condition.

Keychron products marked as being a special or a limited edition cannot be guaranteed in case of replacement to be replaced with an identical product.

The warranty does not cover the costs of consequential damage or indirect loss or any related expense of claiming under the warranty, such as loss from inability to operate the product. Products which are developed especially for use in the country in which they are sold, e.g. due to varying transmission systems and approval demands, are not covered by this warranty if defects or malfunctions are caused by the usage of the product in another country.

In order for the warranty to apply, and to claim under the warranty, you MUST include the original invoice(or any proof of purchase) of Keychron where you wish to make your warranty claim, image or video shows the product problem comply with our warranty policy.

If client found that product or color is not what you ordered, please help to provide a photo to include the product and tracking number written/print on paper, then, shoot an email at support@keychron.in to reach our customer service department within 7 days after order delivered.

Note: If it appears as “Delivered” on courier’s website (i.e., Delivery) for more than 3 months, the delivery details on the courier’s website will be deleted. The courier will not provide any compensation to us for these orders; that’s why we can’t provide any refund if the client does not inform us to investigate the parcel via email 3 months after it has been “Delivered” on the courier’s website.

Gateron Phantom Yellow & Silver Switch version uses the double-shot ABS keycaps and aluminum plate.

A fully customizable 75% layout mechanical keyboard featured QMK / VIA support; designed with all the premium features with unlimited possibilities.

The sculpting of a piece of art.

This keyboard is not just a tool, but a piece of art on your desk. The Q1 is created with a 6063 aluminum CNC machined body, polished, anodized and sandblasted finish, and twenty-four manufacturing processes.

You can assemble every part.

To build a fully customizable keyboard, we designed every component to be able to assemble easily. Therefore, you can customize and adjust each component as you wish.

PS: Changing the knob with a badge or key requires an additional PCB (sold separately).

Double-Gasket Design

Double Gasket Design is an industry innovative structure. In addition to the gaskets on the plates, we added silicone pads between the top and bottom cases. It significantly reduces the resonance between the metals, which in return, reduces the noise of the impacted metals. This Double-Gasket Structure allows the keyboard to maintain the flexibility of the gasket structure and make the overall typing sound better. 

An Epic Core Inside The Keyboard

A brand new ultra-low-power MCU Arm structure that is powerful and armed with 128K Flash to provide more flexibility for developers. The polling rate is up to 1000 Hz out of the box, which makes latency non-existent for the competitive game.

*The special edition  (Orange Yellow and Champagne Gold version) is equipped with MCU ATMEGA32U4.

Please note that the knob color may be slightly different with the case (the blue and grey only) as these parts are manufactured separately.

Programmable Knob

Designed to enhance your creative workflow, the premium rotary encoder allows you to customize your favorite keys and macros through the innovative VIA software with ease.

You can easily customize the knob to your desired key or macro commands like zooming in/out, adjusting screen brightness, brush size, opacity, volume, selecting video clips or photos, or backlight hue.

Switch layouts between macOS & Windows.

Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining the compatibility for Windows devices, the Q1 is one of the only few in the market that comes with a Mac multimedia key layout for Mac enthusiasts. With VIA, you can configure your keymap for both Mac and Windows devices.

Program The Q1 with
QMK & VIA.

With the Q1 ‘s open-source QMK/VIA, you can intuitively remap your favorite keys and create macros with any key (including the knob) on any operating system (macOS, Windows, or Linux) for a fluid workflow.

Get the keymap working on VIA

Since the VIA code for the Q1 is still awaiting approval from Github, it is not yet automatically recognized. Please download the appropriate keymap JSON file (ANSI or ISO) below, open VIA, turn on “Show Design tab” on “Settings” tab, enable “Use V2 definitions (deprecated)” on the “Design” tab, and drag the JSON file into the “Design” tab on VIA to get the Q1 keymap working on VIA.

Q1 v2 Knob Version Keymap JSON

Q1 v2 Knob Special Edition (Champagne Gold, Orange Yellow, Red, and Purple) Keymap JSON

Q1 v2 Non-Knob Version Keymap JSON

Note: If the VIA software still does not detect your keyboard after you upload the latest JSON file above, please update your keyboard with the latest firmware here. The VIA software will only pair with your keyboard when the JSON file corresponds with the right firmware version.

Hot-swappable

The hot-swappable sockets are mounted on the PCB, so you can install or change the switches without soldering. The PCB supports both 3 pin and 5 pin MX mechanical switches.

South-facing RGB LED Lights

The south-facing RGB is designed to better illuminate the keyboard backlight from the typist’s angle with the premium non-shine-through PBT keycaps installed. The south-facing RGB is also free from interference when the user installs Cherry-profile alternative keycaps on their keyboard.

Note: The Q1 V2’s top case has sharper corners to make it much more compatible with third-party keycaps, such as MT3, SA, XDA, etc.

Pre-lubed Gateron G Pro Switch

Every detail counts when it comes to a premium typing experience. An optimized mold with more precise positioning and less wobbliness will certainly improve your fingertip feel. Pair that together with our revamped stabilizers and factory pre-lubed Gateron G Pro switches, a smooth travel experience is guaranteed.

Note: The Phantom switches have phantom light effects that allows the RGB backlight to have the switches’ own case color.

We have the Q1 purple mounted with Keychron K Pro banana switches, offering a slightly different tactile typing feel to G Pro browns for your choice.

All New Screw-In PCB Stabilizers

The screw-in design increases stability and makes it easier for changes and upgrades. Precise craftsmanship makes the stabilizers more stable and less wobbly. The big keys’ (space bar, shift, enter, delete) typing experience is now more stable and smooth. The Keychron Q1 V2 also supports third-party stabilizers including Cherry or Durock.

Looking for ISO Layout?

The Q1 ISO collection comes with fully assembled keyboards with 🇬🇧UK, 🇩🇪German, 🇩🇰🇫🇮🇮🇸🇳🇴🇸🇪Nordic, 🇨🇭Swiss, 🇫🇷French, and 🇪🇸 Spanish layout, and the “Barebone ISO” option is suitable for all ISO countries (e.g.: 🇮🇹Italy, 🇵🇹Portuguese, 🇭🇺Hungary, etc.) to build their keyboard with keycaps in their preferred languages and switches.
