Why it is not possible to order some keyboard parts anymore and why do they say “out of stock” while you still offering DIY Keyboard Kits ?

🧡 When are you closing the custom cables pages and their order submissions ?

Quality Control πŸ”

Creating custom cables since February 2018.
Opened the store on Etsy in April 2019, with +250 happy customers and 350 successful sales just there.
Every Cable is handmade with attention to every detail with the finest materials available resulting in high quality custom USB Cables, Audio Cables and Mouse Cables. We test each cable extensively with various equipment to ensure optimal performance and USB industry standards before they are shipped.

Cable Lengths and known Power Issues ⚠

All cables made by kriscables are 2.0. We don’t build cables with 3.0. Normally 3.0 motherboard’s USB ports are compatible with 2.0 connection, but please consult your motherboard manual for confirmation. For more information on 2.0 connection vs 3.0 connection click here.
We recommend the total length of the cable to be no more than 4.5 Meters (15feet). Note that 20cm coil + 1.5M straight is about 4M of straight cable length used in total. Anything longer than that falls out of USB spec and risks losing its transmission power, which could cause it to under-perform or fail. If your keyboard is power hungry (a lots of Leds/RGB for example) we recommend 3 Meters (10 feet) or less.
For high-power keyboards like HHKBs, Input Club’s K-Type, EM7, Massdrop’s CTRL/ALT, we recommend straight 1.5 Meter cable (5 feet) max length and NO coil at all. Detachable connectors like Lemo and Aviator can be used though. Anything longer than that falls out of USB spec and risks losing its transmission power, which could cause it to under-perform or fail.
Before ordering PLEASE read your keyboard/device manufacturers specifications and manuals.

By ordering from kriscables.com you confirm that you have read this Terms and Conditions and confirm the chosen length and coil additions are suitable for your keyboard’s power requirements. You understand the proprietary nature of detachable connectors pinouts that may cause electrical incompatibilities between cables built by kriscables and other cables built by other companies.

Some basic re-adjustments might be needed. Therefore the buyer will need to have some basic knowledge of soldering, soldering equipment, a screwdriver, will need to know some basic programming, how to use terminal and it’s commands.
