Litl keyboard kit

37.50 inc. VAT

Litl is an easy to build 40% keyboard using only through hole components.


  • Flexible layout options (split space, split enter, split backspace)
  • Separate microcontroller (like the Pro Micro) for greater flexibility, connectivity options and ease of construction
  • Up to 2 rotary encoders (for things like volume, next/previous track and brush size)
  • Optional OLED screen (for things like WPM counts and adorable cats)
  • Integrated sandwich style FR4 case (with the PCB floating between a switch plate and the base)

This kit contains most of the things that you will need to build your own mechanical keyboard and program it yourself. See the description below for what’s included and what’s not included. Find the build guide here and the firmware here.

    I purchased this kit withhout any expectations. I thought that the price point was great for a build like this especially the kit. Included EVERYTHING needed to build minus the soldering station but if you are purchasing this I hope you have one anyway. The instructions were extremely clear and I believe that I will be purchasing another Litl kit and adding mill max hotswap sockets to it for even further customization. An excellent product and easy for beginners to put together.

    Bongo cat is cute and the Litl is as well, my favorite 40% board out there, Just wish the instructions on changing keyboard layers for punctuation and numbers or function keys was more clear. 4.7/5 stars for me!
