Stock available: 4

Have your Lotus 58 Glow delivered fully soldered and tested.

Please read this description carefully before ordering!

The order must include all components you want built onto your keyboard, in correct amounts (RGB LED's etc), along with a description of your desired layout in the comments section. (OLED/Encoder placement etc.)

If the ordered layout/configuration does not match the parts ordered, I will unfortunately have to cancel the order and ask you to make a new order.

For a wireless build with n!n controllers, these are normally not stocked in great numbers, so please contact me for a restock if neccesary!

What is included in the build fee?

  • Soldering of all components
  • Testing all functions/components

The purchase includes soldering and testing of the pair (2 pcs) of Lotus 58 Glow PCBs with two included controllers, programmed and tested with a basic key-map (ProMicro/QMK only, n!n/ZMK is tested, but comes blank).

The PCBs are built with additional components purchased in either a referenced order or the same order, including OLED screens, encoders and RGB LEDs.

If controller sockets are purchased with the kit (an option on the PCB listing), these are installed, otherwise the ProMicro is hard soldered in place.

What is NOT included in the build fee?

  • No physical assembly
  • No firmware/programming

The order does not include mechanical mounting of plates/spacers etc. or any additional programming with QMK/ZMK beyond testing, and a very basic keymap. The keyboard will be delivered partially assembled only. It still requires some assembly and programming for you to have a functional keyboard. This means that OLED screens will NOT display Bongo Cat or similar out of the box, that part is left up to you!

It is recommended you have some experience with using QMK beyond the online configurator. I will gladly answer questions, but as a total novice there is a learning curve once you go beyond using a basic keymap (Ie, OLED animations etc.).

Wireless options

If purchased with nice!nano controllers, the keyboard is delivered without batteries, as shipping these with a kit is problematic to many countries unless you are a business entity. The kit will be fully tested, including testing with batteries to verify that they are charging, but you are responsible for purchasing a set of batteries elsewhere, and installing these.

Also note that TRRS sockets are excluded from the build, as these serve no function on a wireless build (included as spares/for modifying to wired on request)

Lots of RGB does not equal great battery life! If you like color and lights, please consider a wired build instead!

Keep in mind that the build takes some time and is done solely upon order!

The build takes place as part of my normal life/hobbies, so giving me advance notice and a chance to plan reduces the chance I have to cancel the order to avoid not being able to fulfill it in time according to Lectronz timeline.

I basically will take apart anything to find out how it works!
And sometimes I even get around to putting it back together again. More or less the same as before. Sometimes. Maybe... Well, I did it once at least!
The above applies to motorcycles, cars, computers of all sorts, and pretty much whatever mechanical or electric contraption I can get my hands on. Likes to play with multirotors, and recently for whatever reason I decided to build myself a SOF kayak.
So yeah, go ahead and figure out the common thread there if you can!
