Speedlink introduces the Wireless Solar Keyboard, a new wireless keyboard that uses a solar panel to recharge its integrated battery. The company is a bit early in announcing the keyboard though, the expected availability date is August 2012 and the MSRP is 49.99EUR.
While wireless technology frees input devices from cables, it makes them dependent on additional batteries – but that’s about to change. SPEEDLINK® presents a wireless keyboard that doesn’t need any batteries whatsoever: the Wireless Solar Keyboard which features an integrated solar panel to keep it powered with environmentally-friendly energy. The keyboard doesn’t need to be positioned in direct sunlight – to keep the wireless keyboard powered, all that’s needed is to place it in any spot lit by indirect sunlight or artificial lighting. Cutting-edge panel technology, efficient power-saving systems and an integrated rechargeable battery ensure the keyboard is ready to use whenever it’s needed. The keyboard offers true freedom: there’s no need to change batteries or charge it manually using a cable even under poor lighting conditions.
In terms of looks, the Wireless Solar Keyboard is a great addition to any desktop with its ultra-slimline construction and really stylish design boasting a high-gloss pianoblack finish – a perfect match for the shimmering solar panel situated at the top of the keyboard. Low weight and excellent ergonomics are just as much a part of this keyboard as durable technology and first-class workmanship – with the nice and quiet keystroke combined with its precise actuation point making it a real pleasure to type on. “The Wireless Solar Keyboard frees users from cables and the need to change batteries making it ultra convenient and letting users play a key role in protecting the environment,” explains Coletta Jöllenbeck, Director Sales & Purchase at SPEEDLINK®. “With this keyboard, we’re continuing our commitment to conserve natural resources which we started both with our TERRA product range and through our collaboration with the WWF® – something we intend to strengthen in the future.”
