It’s easy to get lost in the rabbit hole of mechanical keyboards. Before you know it you’ll be in the attic soldering yourself a custom built board with cherry keycaps costing a few hundred dollars. For people wanting a travel-friendly mechanical keyboard without spending too much time and effort, the NuPhy Air75 is an all-in-one package. It has the satisfaction and sound of a high-end keyboard, but won’t break the bank.
Why do I need this?
The NuPhy Air75 is an ultra-slim wireless mechanical keyboard. It contains the world’s thinnest PBT spherical keycap in a rugged aluminium frame and contains a low-latency wireless connection to pair the keyboard with your iPad, phone or computer. Up to 4 devices can be connected at the same time.
You’re able to hot-swap all the Air75’s keys without needing a soldering iron or other keyboard manufacturing experience. You can choose between Gateron red, blue or brown keycaps, each producing a different sound, with the blue keycaps being the most clicky (and perhaps annoying to your co-workers).
It comes with an elegant travel case to keep your Air75 from damaging while you’re on the road with it. The case also doubles as a stand for your tablet or phone, with a minimal footprint.
The keyboard layout is suitable for both Windows and Mac, thanks to the additional three keys you can swap out for Windows machines.

Of course I came her to confirm my biases. I just got the Nuphy75 (typing this on the keyboard) and I love it. I got it primarily for an on the go keyboard for my Ipad but I am loving it so much I might have to get another one as my primary. It is well built and sounds great I ordered the brown switches and could not be happier.
