Alps SKBM White, simplified white Alps, Fukka white Alps, or Fuhua white Alps, is a clicky switch in the Alps SKBL/SKBM series. The redesigned mould numbering differentiates it from the complicated Alps SKCM White switch.


The data sheet claims 70±25 gf actuating force, but this has been measured by enthusiasts to be an average of 65 g.[Citation needed]


It has a reputation for being loud.

The springs in the keyboard could reverberate and cause noise when any key is pressed to the bottom hard enough. That sound has been called "ping" or "the chorus of springs".
