If you're lacking the ports, using a mobile device, or just want to be more comfortable, then using a wireless keyboard is ideal. Finally, no fussy cords tangle around your feet or become chew toys for kittens. Still, performance is of the essence, so finding the best wireless keyboard is a must.
This is where we come in. If you need a wireless keyboard for your desktop or tablet, our reviews highlight some of the best options available for 2020 starting with Logitech's remarkable wireless mechanical keyboard, the G915 Lightspeed.
The best: Logitech G915 Lightspeed
The G915 does not know that it is a wireless keyboard. It has a great mechanical design, RGB backlight, numeric keypad, and low profile for convenient positioning. The indicator lights on top are great for monitoring mode, battery life and other important settings, while the aluminum top plate ensures a long life. The keyboard is specifically designed not to slow down players who may need a wireless solution – as long as they can afford it.
A three hour charge can provide up to 30 hours of performance for this keyboard. Logitech also made sure that there is great feedback at press time once you get used to mechanical keyboards. Built-in memory is also included so you always have your custom settings with you. There's even a handy little side roller for instant volume control, as well as other built-in media controls.
If you are looking for the absolute cheapest bluetooth keyboard you can get, the Omoton keyboard is a great option. At first glance, it might seem like an Apple Magic Keyboard clone, but don't be fooled: it's made entirely of plastic, unlike the aluminum frame used in Apple's model.
Overall, the Omoton is quite thin and light, so you can easily put it in a computer bag or backpack along with your tablet or laptop. The manufacturer claims to work continuously on two AAA batteries (not included) for 30 days.
Omoton apparently had iOS in mind when designing this keyboard, but it was supposed to work with macOS, Windows, and Android. However, the longevity for future updates is questionable.
The best battery life: Microsoft Surface Keyboard
Microsoft's Surface branded line of products includes several convertible killer tablets. There are high-end solutions like the Surface Book 2 with its fantastic battery life and the extremely portable Surface Go for beginners. Whether you own one of these or a laptop or desktop from another manufacturer, Microsoft's Surface keyboard is a great accessory.
This portable, lightweight keyboard has a fantastic battery life of up to 12 months on just two AAA batteries (included). The keys can perform up to 500,000 actuations, making them less durable than a mechanical keyboard. However, they should be remotely controlled for years. The Bluetooth 4.0 connection also offers a long range of up to 50 feet outdoors or up to 23 feet in an office setting.
The surface keyboard is compatible with Windows, MacOS, iOS and Android.
The best for Apple devices: Apple Magic Keyboard
Apple's redesigned Magic Keyboard is everything Apple fans (and others) can expect from a minimal Bluetooth keyboard design. Older Magic keyboards had a rolled base that propped up the back of the keyboard to make room for AA batteries. This latest model has a battery, so the keyboard is flatter than previous versions.
Apple's updated keys now have a little more weight when typing, which is an improvement. The arrow keys redesign is a little less welcome, but the general benefits of this new design are hard to deny. The Bluetooth battery also charges for a month, so you can carry this keyboard around with you without worrying about its longevity.
Overall, the Magic Keyboard may be a bit bigger than other options on our list, but it works with both iOS and macOS products. For Apple loyalists, this is the keyboard to buy.
The best compact keyboard: Arteck HB030B
Are you looking for a super compact bluetooth keyboard for your mobile devices? The 0.24-inch Arteck HB030B may be just what you need for typing on the go. It's tiny, wrinkled, and easy to slip into most computer bags or backpacks.
The Artech keyboard offers surprising backlighting with seven different color options and two brightness levels. It's perfect for those who need a portable keyboard in low light.
The Arteck HB030B is compatible with every common mobile platform.
The best couch keyboard: Logitech K400
The Logitech K400 wireless keyboard has consistently achieved a high rank as one of our favorite coffee keyboards. It's small, light, and easy to use while lounging on your best sofa. Since we all know how pointless it is to use a mouse on the couch, the 3.5-inch touchpad on this keyboard adds comfort.
With a range of 33 feet, 86 handy keys and a wide range of computer compatibility via the USB dongle, this keyboard is ideal for surfing the Internet.
