BentoBox Overview

BentoBox V2.0
ReleaseJune 6, 2022
CompatibilityNS / PS3 / PC / Steam Deck / Android
Dimensions7.9″ x 3.9″ x 0.5″



From the United Kingdom with love, the BentoBox was designed to be small, customizable, and easy to carry. It is made of CNC-machined acrylic. That said, there may be some marks on the controller due to the aforementioned process.

The cable type of the BentoBox is USB-C, but a cable is not included. Otherwise, this mini hitbox features Kailh Choc V2 profile mechanical key switches that are low profile with 3.2 mm travel distance and a 1.3 mm actuation point. The actuation force is low at 43 g, and the lifespan is a whopping 50 million presses!

The star of the show, however, is the RGB LED that comes with multiple layout presets. Furthermore, there is a monochrome OLED display that shows button and current modes.
