Logitech Adds Yet Another Solar Wireless Keyboard

Tablets like the Apple iPad are cool, but for those who answer a lot of emails or do a lot of writing, the on-screen keyboard can be a nightmare. Of course, Apple quickly got wise to this annoyance, and created a line wireless keyboard that solves the problem. Kind of.

Apple’s wireless keyboard is ultra-thin, uses Bluetooth technology to communicate with your iPad, and enables you to type comfortably no matter where you are. But it’s powered by two AA batteries, so running out of power is always a possibility. Luckily, Logitech realized that this too would be a hindrance, and they invented a solar-powered alternative dubbed the Wireless Solar Keyboard K760.

Compatible with all Mac products, as well as the iPad and iPhone, this Logitech wireless solar keyboard offers a comfortable typing surface without the hassle of constantly charging or replacing batteries. Designed to mimic  the layout of the traditional Apple keyboard, one finds the Command, Brightness and Eject keys right where they expected them to be. Because the keyboard connects to your devices via Bluetooth technology, you can move from typing on your Mac to your iPad to your iPhone again without much difficulty.

Te keyboard’s solar-cells capture all light–both direct sunlight and artificial light–to keep itself powered up, much like other Logitech solar keyboards we’ve covered. Fully powered, Logitech says, the keyboard works for at least three months, even in total darkness (based on average use per day of eight hours). So unless you like to do a lot of writing in the dark, you shouldn’t ever have to worry about losing functionality. The Logitech keyboard also features PVC-free construction, and fully recyclable box.  Available beginning in June from $79.
