If you’re a player who has butterflies, check out the new SteelSeries Apex 3 TenKeyLess keyboard, which has earned IP32 certification for dust and water resistance.
Although waterproof keyboards are not a new concept — they have been available as part of many laptops and business laptops for many years — the Apex 3 TKL is charged as the first waterproof TKL gaming keyboard. This makes it convenient – and safe – for players to have a drink with them so they can stay hydrated during longer games.
The keyboard is supposed to be made with extra durability to protect against damage and light spillage.
“With an IP32 rating, it is harder for dust, dirt and debris to enter the keyboard, which keeps internal components safe from damage that build-up can eventually cause,” the company explained, noting that the internal components of the keyboard are sealed. Drainage holes in the bottom help guide spilled water from the keyboard, and SteelSeries added that you don’t have to do any extra work, such as a hair dryer.
In addition to the new waterproof capabilities, the Apex 3 TKL also has an extremely quiet key switch, making it a great addition to a quiet home office or bedroom. Players will appreciate the anti-flicker key design designed to manage and register quick keystrokes during action games.
“The silent switch is designed with durable, low-friction materials for over 20 million keystrokes and ensures near-silent gaming,” SteelSeries said. “Brilliant PrismSync Lighting, in addition to its appeal, delivers eight zones with 16.8 million wonderfully clear colors that can be synchronized with the SteelSeries product family.”
The keyboard also has dedicated media control keys, a clickable volume roller, brightness settings and rewind buttons, skip and pause that are easily accessible.
The SteelSeries Apex 3 is available on the company’s website for $ 45 as of today. It is available in a variety of keyboard layouts, including the US and the UK
