Replacement Vega Hotswap PCB — Felix Jen
Released on December 29, 2022
The FJLabs Hotswap Vega PCB was designed for reliability, durability, full thock experience with a choice of flex cuts or no flex cuts. Featuring multi layout bottom row support, the Vega Hotswap PCB supports most of the layouts of the original solder PCB, so there is no compromise to functionality. With advance ESD protection and power filtering, this PCB was designed to withstand the toughest operating environments.
The PCB is constructed with a high thermal resistance Tg 170-180 FR4 and each hole is carefully drilled to perfectly fit Cherry MX switches and grip with just enough force to be snug.
