New toy

Postby Aussie » 05 Oct 2018, 18:02

To save complaints about lights being on when not needed by anyone other than me, I got me a new keyboard. A Logitech G213, which illuminates the keys so no other room lighting needed.

Peace in my time.

Do the keys depress when you hit them? Mechanical. If they don’t then they are body capacitance etc types.

Yes, they depress but it says it is not mechanical. I dunno, as usual.

My wireless Logitec keybord is solar powered. When I’m not using it I sit it on a windowsill to charge. Had it three years with no problems but apparently the battery, if it dies, is not easily user replaceable. Wonder if anyone makes a solar powered keyboard with an easily replaced battery?

Why not just buy cordless keyboard and charge your Sanyo Eneloops with a solar charger if you're really such of a big fan?
