The Vulcan II Mini Air retains the series’ signature sleek, low-profile ID, premium aluminum top plate, and beautiful AIMO RGB lighting powered by ROCCAT’s Swarm software. It also includes key features like ROCCAT’s Easy-Shift[+]™ button duplicator technology, full NKRO (n-key rollover), and anti-ghosting technology to ensure every keystroke and combination of key presses register as intended. The Vulcan II Mini Air launches July 19, 2023, and is available for pre-order now at www.roccat.com and participating retailers in select territories. The Vulcan II Mini Air has a $179.99 MSRP (€179.99).
The wireless Vulcan II Mini Air joins its wired Vulcan II Mini and Vulcan II Max siblings, both of which have received high praise from fans and reviewers alike. Noted as one of the most beautiful gaming keyboards on the market, IGN added the Vulcan II Max to its best gaming keyboards list (Best Mechanical Gaming Keyboard), as did Tom’s Hardware (Best Looking Gaming Keyboard), PCMag (Best RGB Gaming Keyboard), and CGMagOnline (Best Keyboard 2023). RTINGS noted, “The ROCCAT Vulcan II [Max & Mini] keyboards are outstanding for gaming,” while TechRadar gave the Mini a 4.5/5 review score. Additionally, consumer reviews on Best Buy show a 5/5 rating, along with a 4.7/5 rating on Amazon.
“ROCCAT’s Vulcan II Mini Air takes everything PC gamers love about the wired version and adds wireless portability and groundbreaking proximity sensor technology to deliver battery life that puts this mini keyboard in a category of its own,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. “With continuous use and full RGB lighting running, the Mini Air delivers over 30 hours of battery life. When the Mini Air is continuously used for five hours/day with RGB lighting disabled, thanks to its proximity sensor it has the potential to deliver up to a whopping 750 hours until it needs to be recharged.”
With the Mini Air, PC gamers can enjoy wireless freedom using ROCCAT’s gaming grade 2.4GHz Stellar Wireless, or seamlessly swap between three unique Bluetooth devices. The Mini Air’s unique proximity sensors detect when players are AFK and automatically adjusts RGB lighting to maximize battery life. The Vulcan II Mini Air is outfitted with ROCCAT’s Red/Linear TITAN II Optical Switches which are perfect for competitive games that demand speed, precision, and rapid keystrokes. The switches are third-party keycap compatible, come factory pre-lubricated for ultra-smooth actuation, have transparent housings for brighter RGB lighting, and offer a durable 150 million keystroke lifespan. Plus, the Mini Air’s 29 multi-function Smart Keys feature dual LEDs that allow gamers to better visualize when secondary functions are active. The Smart Keys combine with ROCCAT’s EasyShift[+] technology for added functionality, allowing the Vulcan II Mini Air to retain the same functionality as its full-sized counterparts.
The Vulcan II Mini Air can save up to five profiles of custom RGB lighting, key reassignment and more directly to its 4MB onboard memory, providing convenient portability. The Vulcan II Mini Air’s anodized aluminum backplate ensures structural integrity and sets the stage for ROCCAT’s AIMO RGB lighting technology, which produces vibrant displays right out of the box and syncs with other AIMO-enabled products. The Vulcan II Mini Air has double the RGB lighting refresh rate of standard gaming keyboards, with smooth and vibrant effects that create a truly immersive desktop lighting experience. ROCCAT’s Vulcan II Mini Air comes in Ash Black or Arctic White.
