Options for small compact wireless keyboards in the market right now are quite limited. When it comes to full-featured keyboards for desktop use, you only have three contenders; the Apple Wireless Keyboard, Microsoft’s Arc Keyboard and Logitech’s new K810 Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard to choose from. (see K800, Logitech full-sized keyboard)
Logitech Keyboard K810 Tech Specs:
- Compact and ultra-thin with a real brushed aluminum finish
- 3 dedicated easy-switch Bluetooth buttons that can sync 3 devices.
- Sharp, backlit chiclet-style keys.
- Rechargeable with supplied cable. No battery hassles.
- Works with Bluetooth capable PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone (with keyboard profile HID)
- Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows RT
- Supports iPhones, or iPads with iOS 4.0 or later and Android devices with v3.0 or later
The built of the K810 is composed on part plastic and aluminum. Actually the aluminum part is just a slice of layer that is seen below the typing keys. (see image below) Beyond that, the construction is mostly made of plastic so it feels lighter compared to Apple’s full unibody Wireless keyboard.
The keyboard doesn’t take any batteries like AAA or AA. It uses proprietary built-in battery powered/charged by the included USB cable. It’s an advantage in a way because you don’t need to find a set of batteries to use it, a disadvantage is replacing the battery when it becomes dead in a few years.
