A Question about the razer blackwidow keyboard cables.

I would like to ask Why Does the Razer Blackwidow elite keyboard has 3 different cables and in which 2 of them are USB and the 3rd one is a 3.5mm jack cable?
I am wondering because I am thinking of buying the keyboard and I would like to know what are the features that the 2 USB and 1 3.5mm offer and where can they help me.
I would appreciate that.


Thank you.

Hi there! Thanks for posting your inquiry on our Support board. By the way, which particular model of Razer Blackwidow are you referring to? If this is the model with two USB cable, the first USB cable is where the keyboard gets its power source and direct connection to Razer Synapse while the second USB cable provides additional power for the USB pass-through (USB 2.0 port) and 3.5mm audio port on the keyboard.
Sorry I forgot to specify that the black window I was talking about was the elite 2018
the blackwindow elite has 2 USB and 1 3.5 mm jack that the keyboard i meant to ask for

Thanks for confirming. And yes, my post above explains it all. By the way, If you'll be not using the USB passthrough feature of your keyboard, you can leave it unplugged from your computer.
