Logitech Announces Solar-Powered Wireless Keyboard

Anyone who owns a wireless keyboard knows how frustrating it is when your batteries suddenly drop dead. It always happens at the perfectly wrong moment; we're either just about to finish writing that mid-term paper or we're right in the middle of a heated firefight.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could put our minds together and come up with some kind of renewable power source for our wireless keyboards? Honestly, calculators have pulled it off for years without any hang-ups, why are we still waiting? Well we're not anymore, thanks to Logitech, our days of buying those quantity over quality battery packages may be over.

Logitech has introduced the long-overdue, solar-powered wireless keyboard. It works the same as any other wireless keyboard, you just plug the USB receiver into your computer and start typing. There's no software to install and best of all, no batteries to buy.

The keyboard itself is only 1/3" thick, and if you're worried about how well the lights in your home will power this thing, Logitech says the keyboard can hold a charge for up to 3 months in total darkness! If that's not enough, they will also have an app available November 15th that will show you not only how much juice you have left, but also how much power your lights are giving the device. The keyboard is available for pre-order at Logitech.com for about $80, which isn't bad when you don't have to worry about batteries. It'll be in stores later this month.
