The Best Solar Powered Wireless Keyboards With No Batteries Required

Updated on July 3, 2013

Wireless Solar Powered Keyboards are The Future

Modern day computers offer far better alternatives to the traditional wired keyboards we got used to using in the past. We no longer have to be slave to the wires and cables which does away with the tangled mess which often met us when we tried to move the stupid things or wanted to pass a one over to someone else sitting at the desk. I hated those wires but I love the new battery powered models we're been treated to in recent years.

Know what I love even more? Solar powered keyboards like the Logitech K750! These do away with the one remaining issue I have and that is the trade off between having a wire shackling the keyboard to the PC and the occasional glitchy annoyance when the battery starts running low on a regular wireless model. Solar keyboards use the power of the sun or the overhead office lighting to charge up and because they aren't exactly gobbling up power when they are in use they do not lose charge when you are working.

The market for these is still young but Logitech has been leading the way with their desktop model and now their new portable solar powered keyboard ideal for iPads and other mobile devices.

It's A Light Powered Keyboard - How Cool Is That?!

The obvious reason for buying this eco friendly keyboard it is powered by light and not by batteries or via a connecting wire. It is probably the thing which makes you most cautious about buying it as well but be assured, this feature actually works amazingly well. I was fully expecting to get issues with dim lighting or it failing to hold a charge for long enough but boy am I pleased with how well this feature actually works. I find the charge indicator rarely drops below 100% and that's with both natural and artificial lighting as it works just fine with the light from my overhead lights. So if you buy a Logitech K750 Solar Keyboard you can say goodbye to wires, forget about batteries and enjoy a device which works worry-free by light alone.

It's Thin, Lightweight and Pleasing To The Eye

I love the way this looks. it is a 1/3" thick with stylish sleek lines and an overall attractive appearance which adds a real touch of class to my desktop. It is also very light and the tiny Logitech Unifying receiver is so small I'm more than happy to switch it over to my laptop and type from the comfort of my couch.

Wireless Keyboard Features

The 2.4Ghz wireless connection is very powerful elimitationg delays and dropouts and the 128-bit AES encryption is one of the highest levels of security you will find.

The Keyboard is Responsive and Comfortable To Use

The Logitech-only concave keycap design makes for one of the most comfortable typing experiences around. With this keyboard you get a quite, fast and comfortable typing experience which you will quickly come to love.

Works with Windows based laptops and PCs.

If you are dumping your old keyboard for a wireless solar powered computer keyboard for laptop or desktop computers then you might want to consider cutting the tail off your mouse by buying a wireless solar mouse as well. A solar powered computer mouse allows you to forget about batteries or annoying trailing cables and instead use the renewable energy of the sun or indoor lighting to provide the power for it to operate.

    It was the thought of batteries that was preventing me from trying this. What a great idea!
