If you’re in the market for a new keyboard, I highly recommend checking out Logitech’s K750 Wireless Solar Powered Keyboard. I bought this keyboard a few months ago, and I absolutely love it!
(Available at Amazon.com.)
I’d had wireless keyboards in the past and didn’t care for them because I needed to change the batteries so frequently. I definitely wasn’t looking for a wireless keyboard while I was shopping around, but I was intrigued by the idea of solar power when I stumbled upon this. There was some skepticism about how well it would work or what quantity of light would be necessary to keep it going, but I haven’t had a single issue with it. In fact, even on the day I got it, I used it in my dimly lit living room for the entire day without having to charge it.
It’s a very sexy piece of hardware, with its very low profile–similar in thickness to a smartphone–and a shiny black finish. The keys feel more like a laptop keyboard than a “normal” keyboard, so that may turn some people off. There is a light-source button you can press to have the keyboard indicate to you whether it’s getting enough light or not. It’s also important to note that it doesn’t need sunlight to charge; it will charge from any standard lamp. The range on it seems decent, too, though I have not done any sort of testing with that.
