Healios V2 Review
Healios V2 Linear Switch
With RGB keyboards, they emit enough light due to their transparent design which adds an aura to your keyboard.
Linear switches are great if you look for a smoother typing experience from your keyboard. The linear switches are silent compared to the other mechanical switch types, tactile and clicky. When you work in offices or if keyboard switch noise can be a concern, the linear type of switches can be a savior for you. If you like typing for long, then the Healios v2 switches can be an excellent choice for you.
Housing and Body
The Healios V2 has a transparent housing, which will not block any lights if you mount it on a keyboard with RGB lighting. Thus the lighting would be great.
The build quality of the housing and the switch is also good. Hence the switches would be a great choice to use with an RGB lighting keyboard setup.
The stem of the switch is of Orange color and is the silent type, that is when you click you won’t get any clicky noises which you get with clicky switches in mechanical keyboards.
The stem feels smooth and silent when clicked. Every click feels consistent and up to the mark.
Spring and Force
The spring fitted in the Healios V2 has a bottom-out force of 63.5g. So, it is not too stiff and is fine.
The Healios v2 switch can support a keyboard that has a plate mounting. These switches have added two plastic legs in the bottom that add rigidity when you solder it on the PCB.
You need to check your mechanical keyboard PCB has additional two-pin mounting holes in it for the two legs of the switches. Otherwise, you need to remove the switch legs to mount to the keyboard PCB.
The mounting process is straightforward, and these switches fit pretty well to the PCB.
