The best wireless keyboards for 2019

The best wireless keyboards will see you right, no matter your device

Logitech K780

Tablets and laptops are getting more advanced all the time, but our input options often have a hard time keeping up. If you want to get down to business, a wireless keyboard can be a great way to maintain portability without sacrificing typing comfort and accuracy. Our top pick is the Logitech K780, which works with everything and has amazing battery life. But be sure to check out our other options, too.

If you’re not concerned about wires, some of the best all-round keyboards are mechanical ones.

Logitech K780 multi-device wireless keyboard

The best

Unlike the K480, we absolutely adored the Logitech K780 when we had a chance to test it. Compatible with Windows, MacOS, Android, and iOS, this versatile wireless keyboard comes with a tray to seat your tablet in, supports up to three devices at once, and has its own USB dongle for systems without Bluetooth support.

We did feel the lack of NUM lock and caps-lock indicators when we tested it, and no backlighting does mean that you aren’t going to want to use this one in the dark — unless you’re a pro-touch-typer — but overall this is the best wireless keyboard we’ve tested in quite some time.

It’s comfortable, versatile, and purportedly lasts as long as two years on just two AAA batteries. Although this keyboard is more expensive, that’s comparable to our choice for best battery-life on this list.

Available now in two different colors, the Logitech K780 is our pick for the best wireless keyboard you can buy right now.

OMOTON Bluetooth Keyboard

The best budget keyboard

If you’re looking for the absolute cheapest Bluetooth keyboard you can get, the OMOTON keyboard is a good option. It might look like a rip-off of Apple’s Magic Keyboard, but don’t be fooled: It’s made entirely of plastic. The OMOTON is quite thin and light, making it convenient to quickly throw in your bag with your iPad or laptop. The manufacturer claims 30 days of continuous use, using two AAA-batteries, which aren’t included in the package.

It really is made with iOS in mind but should work across the board for MacOS, Windows 10, and Android — though longevity for future updates is questionable.

Microsoft Surface keyboard

The best battery life

Microsoft’s Surface line of products has some killer convertible tablets in its range. There are high-end solutions like the Surface Book 2 with its fantastic battery life, and the extremely portable Surface Go at the entry-level. Whether you have one of those or a laptop or desktop from another brand, the Surface keyboard is a great accessory to consider too.

With Bluetooth 4.0 support, this lightweight, portable keyboard has a fantastic battery life that lasts up to 12 months on just a pair of AAAs (the batteries are included too). It’s compatible with Windows, MacOS, iOS, and Android, so there are virtually no mainstream platforms that you can’t use this keyoard with. Its keys are rated for up to 500,000 actuations, so it’s not as durable as a mechanical keyboard, but should last for years of remote typing. At quite a distance too, with a 50ft range in open air or up to 23 feet in an office environment.

Apple Magic Keyboard

The best keyboard for Apple devices

Apple’s redesigned Magic keyboard is everything Apple fans (and others) could want from a minimal Bluetooth keyboard design. Older Magic keyboards had a rolled base that propped the back of the keyboard up and made room for AA batteries. The new version has a rechargeable battery, so the keyboard lies much flatter. It might be a little bigger than some of the other options on the list, but it works well with both iOS and MacOS products.

The keys have also been upgraded, and now have a little more weight when typing, which is generally also an improvement. The arrow key redesign is somewhat less welcome, but the advantages to this new design are hard to deny. The Bluetooth battery claims a one-month charge, too, so you can carry this keyboard around without worrying about it too much. That’s not a patch on some of the others on this list, but for Apple loyalists this is the keyboard to buy. The next version may even come with Apple’s famed touch bar.

Arteck HB030B Universal Slim Keyboard

The best compact keyboard

Those looking for a super-compact Bluetooth keyboard for their mobile devices may find the inexpensive Arteck HB030B perfect for their needs. This 0.24-inch thin keyboard is easy to slip into most computer bags or backpacks and is compatible with pretty much every common mobile platform. It’s tiny and scrunched, which might be just what you want when you need to type on the go.

It also comes with a surprising amount of backlighting, with seven different color options and two levels of brightness. Perfect for those who need a mobile keyboard in low-light conditions.

Logitech K400 wireless keyboard

The best couch keyboard

This small, lightweight Logitech model has been our favorite couch keyboard for years, and that still holds true. If you’re in a situation where using a mouse isn’t really feasible or comfortable, this little keyboard includes a handy 3.5-inch touchpad for basic browsing and control purposes. It’s ideal for kicking back and working on something that doesn’t require deft mouse controls or high-speed typing action.

The 86-key keyboard works via USB dongle, and has a range of up to 33 feet. While it’s designed for Windows, it should work on any computer with a compatible USB port.
