The Vulcan II Mini Air is a robust 65% gaming keyboard that sheds the numpad and dedicated function keys without losing any functionality. This allows the keyboard to be taken on the go without any impact on performance.
The Vulcan II Mini Air is sturdy, with little flexing in its plastic frame when you try to bend or twist it. As always, I used my “three-foot drop” test on tile, hardwood, and carpeted floors, and it survived each with flying colors (and only a few keys popped off ).
Roccat’s TITAN II optical switches allow for fast actuation and have an impressive 150 million keystroke lifespan; that’s 50 percent more than popular rivals like the Apex Pro Mini or Corsair which advertise up to 100 million keystrokes. You also get the EZ Functions dual-LED smart keys, 29 multi-function keys that allow you to control media playback, check the battery life of connected accessories and device swapping.
Then there is the Adaptive Battery feature, which relies on proximity sensors to know when you are away from the keyboard and maximizes battery life when not in use.
