Hua-Jie AKF series is a series of four-tab Alps clone switches manufactured by Himake and sold through their parent company Hua-Jie. AKF series switches differ from the common Hua-Jie AK series by having PCB mounting pins, and are therefore not compatible with AK series or Alps keyboards. Based on samples of the corresponding Xiang Min KSBF, these switches are assumed to be identical inside to their AK series counterparts.
Hua-Jie switches do not carry any identifying marks.
The specification sheet does not mention contact blade size or switch lifetime; these figures are likely to be identical to the AK series.
All AKF series switches are discontinued.
|Part number||Type||Slider colour||Force|
|AKF-LE||Linear with LED||Yellow||70±15 gf|
|AKF-LK||Latching lock||White||130±20 gf|
AKF-DN2 and AKF-D5 are likely to be linear, not clicky, per their AK series counterparts. The specification sheets are known to contain errors.
These switches have not knowingly been encountered in any keyboards thus far.
