A Bluetooth Keyboard That Will Run Until The Sun Explodes

Logitech has added a new keyboard to its line-up of solar-powered accessories, except this one comes with Bluetooth and the ability to switch between three devices. Pretty nifty for solar-tech, but how long does the battery last?

Logitech's Solar Wireless Keyboard K760 connects via Bluetooth to either your PC, Mac or mobile device and the company claims that the device will run for three months. Seriously. Here's what it had to say:

Similar to the existing Logitech Solar Keyboards, you can charge this keyboard in any light -- low light or lamp light, indoors or outdoors. Fully powered, the keyboard works for at least three months, even in total darkness (based on average use per day of eight hours).

Even though it can charge in low-light situations, it's probably best to put it in front of sunlight every so often. Perhaps take a walk outside at lunchtime to charge your keyboard, and screw those people giving you weird looks for maintaining a relationship with a peripheral.

The K760 is set to be available from Logitech's website within the next week or so for $99.95.



    Wow.. striking resemblance with apple's bluetooth keyboard.. actually its almost identical other than the solar bar at the top! haha how original

      that was kinda the point dude. It was designed specifically for use with Macs, and to fit in with the existing style.

    Technically it should run well after the sun explodes because of the light that will come out of the explosion. The question is, how long does it to fully charge up? Looks good though - like a Mac keyboard.

      That's a grand total of eight minutes. Plus the claimed 3 months of running in complete darkness. That's not really 'well after' in the context of a sun's lifespan =P

    So, just like my cat, it seeks out sunlight by walking behind the curtain at the window sill and spends a few hours sun-baking accordingly.
    But, unlike my cat, my keyboard doesn't have four legs.

    Our sun is a yellow dwarf, it's not a type of star that explodes, so the keyboard should be good for about 4 billion years until it becomes a red giant and vapourises earth (the sun that is, not the keyboard).

    I love never having to change batteries.

    lol, how much of a cut from Logitech do you guys get? There's an thorough review on July 6 and it's also mentioned on May 31?? And now this one.

      Fair cop but the review wasn't exactly glowing. I was happy to get an update on release dates.

    Ugh, nothing worse than minimal travel, awful chiclet crap keyboards.

    Seriously, have we devolved so far as tech consumers that this is now considered acceptable?

      Oh no, people like something you don't! WAAAAAAA
