The Volt is a new 80% keyboard designed by Percent Studio. We received a plethora of precious feedback during the past 6 months, through which we found that the majority of customers hope to see features such as Bluetooth, hot-swap, and RGB LEDs in our new work. So we designed the Volt. The Volt is not only equipped with a 4mm integrated positioning board but Kailh hot-swappable sockets, Bluetooth 3.0, full-key RGB LEDs, and USB Type-C as well as Percent Studio’s new design language. We've also experienced changes in suppliers, concepts, production, and quality control process. We believe that customers participating in the group buy will have felt the difference. Together, with great optimism in our product, we proudly introduce you to our latest piece, Volt.
Volt是percent studio全新设计的一套80%键盘。在2019年上半年我们收到了非常多的反馈意见，非常感谢你们的邮件，我们了解到绝大部分的玩家希望能在我们的新作品中看到诸如蓝牙、热插拔、全局RGB灯等功能，于是我们就设计了volt。但volt绝不仅仅只是搭配了4mm的一体化定位板，凯华热插拔插座，蓝牙3.0，全键位rgb led，usb type-c等的一款80%键盘，更带来了Percent Studio全新的设计语言。这一年的时间我们经历了一些供应商的变动，一些理念上的改变，我们大幅度的优化了生产流程，也大大的提高了品控，相信上半年参与了团购的玩家会有所感受。那么就让我们骄傲的向您介绍一下这一台我们最新的作品---volt。
Our new design language emphasizes simplicity, removes extra parts, and has a sturdy and concise appearance. Every line and detail has been meticulously organized to make the overall design more visually impactful. The right side of the keyboard consists of a thin RGB strip, powered by 4 RGB LEDs, emitting a stunning breathing light effect. We connected all the keys in the F key line together, to form a different 80% alignment. Additionally, the two buttons on the right side of the F12 were defined as FN and WIN, which makes the keyboard smaller and more portable with Bluetooth. In addition, Print Screen, Scroll Lock, Pause, Insert, Home, Page Up, Delete, End, and Page Down are all connected to form a 3 x 3 square. Here, you can put 9 of your favorite artisan keycaps to embellish your keyboard.
Even the details of our smallest parts are not ignored, from newly designed packaging to every CNC-produced part. Even the tiniest part of the set, the 4 silicone pads, which keep the keyboard tilted to prevent slippage, are more durable and beautiful than the average consumer product. In fact, these are our new custom size and custom made materials. Despite its outstanding aesthetic, Volt is also designed for function and practicality. We avoided making excessive and useless embellishments. On the Volt, there is no traditional weight design on the back of the keyboard, just an acrylic cover to launch the Bluetooth signal. The purpose of not adding weight is to make the keyboard more suited for mobility and easy carrying.
Volt's integrated positioning plate is engraved by a single piece of aluminum alloy CNC. This positioning plate matches with the hot-swappable base. Even if you are not good at soldering, it can be easy to use. The thickness of the 4mm plate is stronger than the previous 1.5mm thick positioning plate. The relatively small keyboard internal space will not produce a cavity effect, allowing the plate to flex during typing.
1.) USB Type-C supports up to 1000 Hz true reporting rate. Support C to C interface (only for C port keyboard)
2.) USB and Bluetooth 3.0 support (all buttons respond)
3.) Compatible with Windows, Android, Linux, and Apple (requires shortcut key switch) as well as other operating systems.
4.) Free EEPROM memory, flash memory backlight mode. All axis effects support global control: Brightness increase and decrease (a total of 5 files, default 5th), speed (a total of 5 files, default 3rd).
5.) Supports full key macro recording, key position modification, and full key light color adjustment

The Bluetooth function allows the Volt to connect up to four devices, and devices such as PC/MAC/ANDROID/IOS can be connected. The built-in lithium battery can guarantee a battery life of about 30 days(Turn off the light and use it normally), even in the state of Bluetooth mode, you can still enjoy the beautiful lighting effects of the built-in RGB.
The hot-swap solution uses the full-key PCB to solder the Kailh's hotswap sockets. After inserting the shaft, confirm that the pin of the shaft is in contact with the fixed slot of the hot-swappable base.

The built-in PCB RGB LEDs cover all key positions. Press the FN key combination on the keyboard to switch between multiple lighting effects.
Our PCB uses a semi-production keyboard solution that emphasizes stability and usability. It is easy to use with simple settings and is very friendly to novice users. Click the button above to download the keyboard driver.

The improvement of Volt's process includes the addition of electrophoretic color. We have overcome many problems in the first half of 2019, greatly optimized the production process, ensured the perfection of details, and slowly improved the quality control. Releasing this keyboard is just the beginning, and we will continue to make unremitting efforts to design better products.
