Wow, talking about innovation, I was surprise they make keyboard that charges the battery with solar power, so basically you have either a battery built-in rechargeable that is or a AA or AAA size battery again rechargeable, what it does is the solar panel in front of the keyboard will charge the battery when needed, or I guess use it simultaneously with just normal room light, doesn’t have to be sunlight, cool huh?
I found one, on sale right now. It’s a Logitech “Logitech K750 Wireless Solar Keyboard”
The K750 Wireless Solar Keyboard from Logitech is a solar-powered keyboard that features wireless connectivity and compatibility with Windows-based PCs. It charges automatically when exposed to the light, and holds a charge of up to 3 months. It features environmentally-friendly construction, an unobtrusive USB receiver and slim profile. Since it is hot pluggable, it works right out of the box without any software installation. The K750 keyboard is a smart choice to save the environment while enjoying a comfortable and productive computing experience.
Whenever there’s light, the K750 keyboard charges itself and stays charged for at least three (3) months in total darkness. While it allows you to use less energy it also reduces battery hassles.
