I need to purchase switches for my AT. Which ones should I buy?

There are tons of switches (a.k.a. buttons that can be placed just about anywhere) on the market. You can find switches for a variety of ways to play, including: light touch, rigid, and even ones called “twitch switches,” which can be placed on a muscle such as your calf or eyebrows. You’ll want to do some research to ensure you are buying ones that will work best for you.

We highly recommend checking out the Logitech Adaptive Gaming Kit

Light Touch Buttons:
Light Touch Button Sensitive, light-pressure buttons with a 12 mm height that can be activated with low force. 
Variable Buttons:Variable Trigger Button Pressure-sensitive triggers can function like gas pedals, ideal for racing games or other applications. Force tune them for optimum control and comfort.
Small Buttons:A Small Button Approximately 1.4” buttons, built with mechanical switches, offer durable and consistent actuation. Low height allows for easy and quick presses.
Large Buttons:A Large Button Approximately 2.5” buttons built with mechanical switches are reinforced with stabilizer bars for consistent actuation across the full surface.

If you need something different, like a mouth switch or sip and puff switch, EnableMart has a variety of switches that range in size, touch requirements, and function. Make sure that any switches you purchase uses a 3.5mm jack. Unfortunately, many of these switches are very pricey, but it’s a great place to start. Xbox also has a forum on what external devices work with the XAC.
