ROCCAT Vulcan II Mini Air
The Vulcan II Mini Air is the wireless version of the ROCCAT Vulcan II Mini. The company’s first-ever wireless gaming keyboard, it packs performance, durability, and functionality into a mini 65% form factor. This wireless keyboard can be used using 2.4GHz or three unique Bluetooth channels, allowing gamers to pair it with multiple devices. In addition, it features proximity sensors which, when ROCCAT Swarm is installed, helps maximize battery life by detecting when gamers step away from their setups.
“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. 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 a up to a whopping 750 hours until it needs to be recharged.”Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation.

ROCCAT Vulcan II
For those who prefer a larger keyboard, the new Vulcan II is the company’s successor to the Vulcan 120 series keyboards. Keeping true to the sleek, low-profile design of the Vulcan 120, the Vulcan II is the first ROCCAT keyboard to feature the company’s new TITAN II Mechanical Switches. These switches come factory pre-lubricated for ultra-smooth actuation, have an optimized transparent housing for improved RGB lighting, and will deliver a durable lifespan up to 80 million keystrokes.
“ROCCAT’s Vulcan 120 series keyboards are synonymous with impeccable quality, top performance, and premium design elements, and the new Vulcan II pushes these areas further to create yet another full-size PC gaming keyboard unrivalled in its class. Since the original Vulcan keyboard debuted at Computex 2018, the series has earned countless editorial accolades and design awards, and has been a best-selling keyboard in Germany in 2022/2023. We expect these trends to continue with the Vulcan II Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, as evidenced in the extremely strong reception to the Vulcan II Max and Mini optical keyboards that launched late last year.”Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation
