Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 Logitech

A new wireless keyboard by Logitech reduces power consumption and eliminates the hassle of replacing/recharging batteries--both using next-generation solar technology. Whereas other solar options force you to place the solar panels in direct sunlight to recharge, the Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 features two panels on top of the keys that charge the keyboard using ambient light, so even indoor light can can be used for juice.

Logitech tells us that a full solar charge can power the keyboard for at least three months, and a convenient on/off button conserves energy while it's not being used. Additionally, the company also includes a copy of the Logitech desktop Solar App (available for download November 15) with a lux meter that offers quick information about battery levels, drain alerts, and placement tips on where to pick up the most power.

Like the recently reviewed Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800, the keys on the K750 are of Logitech's own design that combine a quiet click and a concave shape with a curve that mimics your own fingers.

Finally, the K750 also uses another Logitech proprietary Unifying Receiver technology that lets you connect a single mini-USB plug to six compatible mice and keyboard device, so if you're already using a Logitech Unifying mouse, your computer is already set to pair up.

The Logitech Wireless Solar keyboard K750 is available today on the Logitech Web site for $79.99. Look for a full review on CNET coming soon.
