Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760

Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760

Price: $79.99

Logitech’s Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 comes with a built in solar panel, which can charge the keyboard’s battery from a plethora of light sources, including both outdoor and indoor light sources.  With a fully charged battery, Logitech states that the product can last for about three months (without any light) on an average use of about 8 hours per day.  Moreover, the keyboard boasts a white smooth cut and stylish design that is very reminiscent of Apple’s keyboards and thus makes a great compliment to Apple products.

In addition, the keyboard’s Bluetooth connectivity allows for the ability to switch between up to three devices with the press of a single button and no need to reconnect:  This can work very well when switching say between an iPhone, iPad and MacBook computer.

Although it seems to be both visually and functionally fit for Apple products (contains some keys functions that are primary to Mac OS), the keyboard is indeed compatible with Windows computers as well as Android devices that allow for Bluetooth connectivity.
