The Good The affordable Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 boasts two solar panels that power the keyboard while you type, and other eco-conscious features include PVC-free construction and fully recyclable packaging.
The Bad The keyboard lacks an integrated palm rest, which may limit its appeal for heavy typists, and there's currently no software support for Mac OS.
The Bottom Line Logitech's K750 wireless solar keyboard gets our Editors' Choice Award for being an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional input devices with convenient extras and an affordable price.

Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750
Logitech calls its $79 Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 an innovation in typing technology, and after using our evaluation model for a week, we certainly agree. The dual solar panels mounted on top of the superthin keyboard require zero user effort to keep the device charged and ready to type, while the accompanying Solar App desktop software shows precisely how much battery life is left. We're very much in favor of the Logitech K750, especially when partnered with Logitech's convenient Unifying Receiver, which lets you connect multiple Logitech input devices to a single USB plug. In fact, we're giving it an Editors' Choice Award, and recommend it to anyone shopping for a new keyboard.
With its low-profile keycaps and a glossy black mirrored finish behind them, the K750 solar keyboard looks more like a disconnected laptop keyboard than its desktop counterparts. Unlike the mechanical keyboards currently popular in the peripheral market, this input device uses scissor switches underneath that register key presses with a lighter touch, and give the additional benefit of low noise. This type of keyswitch also allows Logitech to reduce the thickness of the keyboard chassis to just one-third of an inch.
The standout features on the K750 are obviously the dual solar panels that sit on either side of the logo branding on top of the keys. The panels power the integrated ML2032 lithium manganese button-cell rechargeable battery that then pushes power to the keyboard.
