I sure have never heard of anything like that. I'm pretty sure every mouse on the planet uses the exact same micro-switch.
APU what?

Not sure if honest or trolling... rolleyes.gif

Apparently Cherry micro-switches are rare because they are more expensive...

This is a silent but tactile mouse, but I dunno what microswitch it uses...

I'm sure you can remove the short lever of this switch, you would then have a microswitch of cherry for your mouse.

0.44N to press the switch, omron D2F-01F has 0.74N.

If you want switches in your mouse like the mx red switches you can get in keyboards, then you could solder in cherry DG13-B1LA switches in your mouse. thumb.gif

Edit: Of course i think you have sound feedback with the cherry microswitches, but i dont think you need as many power to press the switch as you find in standard mice on the market.

Cherry DG are more expensive, though specifically, the operating cycle isn't appealing. Like most sub action switches, the main purpose wasn't mice.

 

Most companies opt for D2FC Omron as they subjectively offer the best cost/performance ratio on the market (my opinion). Base premise for the switch is identical to "higher end" SKUs.

 

TTC and Huano only get mentioned on forums because of customers who were dissatisfied with the switch for use as a main button. There are many alternative options to choose from, though you may see TTC pop up a bit more. It's actually quite popular among a few factories using them for side buttons.   

 

Huano on the other hand....  Well lets just say Zowie made them famous? Far from a "big player".

 

Edit: On a personal note, I quite like the feedback of certain TTC 159 for angled buttons.

It would be fairly trivial to make reed switches for your mouse if you want a linear switch.
