IT – Solar powered wireless keyboard

If you like Apple’s Bluetooth keyboard, but you’re sick of changing batteries, the Logitech K760 may be what you need. Not only will you never have to charge it (as long as you have at least some light in your workspace), it lets you use the keyboard with multiple devices, without having to deal with connection settings every time you switch. At about £80, the K760 is a bit on the expensive side, and, thanks to the row of solar cells above the keys, it’s a little less portable than Apple’s keyboard

From a design point, the K760 closely resembles Apple’s own Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard with the addition of the strip of solar cells at the top of the unit. It’s ostensibly designed for Apple products, but works with Bluetooth-enabled Windows computers and Android tablets/smartphones, though it does have a Mac-centric layout with a couple of Mac-only keys.

The latest iPad is slimmer and lighter hence its name – iPad Air. Apple has delivered a proper exterior design update, crafting a substantially thinner and lighter tablet that finally eliminates the chunky bezels handed down since the first generation (at least on the left and right). But, despite this significant exterior reduction, the iPad Air maintains the battery life of its predecessor and offers significantly better performance.

Solar power is the key feature and you can charge this keyboard in any light. Logitech says that when fully powered, the keyboard works for at least three months, even in total darkness (based on average use per day of 8 hours). With its built-in solar-powered battery, the sleek Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 will save you money in the long run and is a better deal than Apple’s Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard.
