Any recs for a wireless keyboard w/ docking station?

by Alaine1212 / March 16, 2013 2:09 AM PDT

I'm using an Adesso wireless keyboard at the moment and it's working fine but I'm worried about replacing the batteries every time they die, as it takes four AAA's. Really not looking forward to throwing cash out the window.

Any suggestions for a rechargeable keyboard with a touchpad?

You just made your argument for a run of the mill wired keyboard.

So, are you trying to tell me there's no such thing?

I've got my laptop connected to a TV via HDMI. I don't want wires everywhere. :/

And you don't want batteries as well.

All the units I see use batteries. Even our Logitech Revue keyboard took a few batteries but got about 3 to 6 months on a set. I didn't consider it much of a waste but then again I buy the big pack of batteries to reduce the cost and for those that worry about waste, the old batteries go to the recycle bin at a local battery store.

You didn't tell if this was Bluetooth but there are rechargeable keyboards such as https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&as_q=rechargeable+bluetooth+keyboard but for the price you can buy a few years of batteries.
