Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard Powers Your Keyboard With Your Desk Lamp

The Logitech Solar Keyboard draws its power from light so you can forget about buying AA batteries and charge it with the light of your workspace.

So few devices actually run on AA batteries these days that you never have them around when you need them. Instead of worrying about your keyboard's batteries, the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard charges up with two solar panels on the top. You don't need the light on all the time; once it's fully charged, it can (supposedly) last for months with no light at all. It even comes with a program that'll tell you how much power it is currently gaining from the ambient light, so you can play around with your lamp and find the optimal position for fast charging.

The Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard runs for around $80.

    What a coincidence! I just saw one for the first time this afternoon @ Penrith's DSE for a crazy $129. $80 is reasonable. I think it's a great idea to have solar-powered keyboards.

    I have one of these!

    I've had it for a few months now, and it's pretty awesome. It's nice to type on (it's a little like a laptop keyboard, the keys a fairly spaced and have a dip in them) and is so slim and light, which was my main reason in getting it. I haven't been 'actively' charging it but my room gets a fair bit of light during the day and I'll often have a light on when it gets dark - so far I have not dropped below 100% charge.

    My vote is that it's worth the money! :D

    I've used a friends for a few days and they are great! I'm now hanging out for my current keyboard to break just so I can justify buying one :)
