If you use a computer for work, then you’re not gonna get much done without a good keyboard. That said, a lot of laptops don’t come with built-in keyboards that are particularly comfortable to use for extended periods, and most desktop PCs you’ll buy come with wired ones. A better alternative is to upgrade to a quality wireless keyboard. You don’t have to pay much for one, either, and our roundup of the month’s best wireless keyboard deals is your chance to score one for even less.
These discounts feature some keyboard bundles with mice included, but if you need to buy of those separately or need some other stuff to outfit your workstation, check out these wireless mouse deals, headphone deals, and monitor deals, too.

A beginner’s guide to wireless keyboards
Paired with a desktop monitor and a wireless mouse, a wireless keyboard can turn any laptop into the ultimate home workstation. The type of keyboard you opt for will depend entirely on your needs. If you’re after something to get some work done during the day before kicking back in the evening to battle to the end in Fortnite, you’ll probably want something a little more high-end with mechanical switches. These result in a faster response — less time between you clicking the button and the character on the screen executing the action. Many popular gaming keyboards feature this design.
Now, what about us mere mortals who are just after a keyboard to get down to business? There are a couple of different options. Something cheap will almost always do the trick, offering the wire-free typing experience that so many of us crave. Increase your budget a little bit and you’ll get near-enough to the same hardware, but the keys won’t be as loud and loose. Pivot to the top-end and you’ll take home a keyboard with some resistance. These deliver the most satisfying typing feedback as you have to press with at least an ounce of force to make the word you’re thinking of appear on the screen.

Plus, there are a couple of unique characteristics that wireless keyboards can have. Some are collapsible, meaning they fold in half for easy transportation. We recommend staying as far away from these as can be. Unless you’re parting with an awful lot of cash, they’re often poorly made, and rattle around as you type. In a more positive light, some wireless keyboards come with a built-in numeric keypad (we aren’t kidding — they still exist!). These are particularly useful if you spend a large chunk of your day immersed in Microsoft Excel or some other software where numbers are all the rage.
Do wireless keyboards need to be charged?
That depends on the type of wireless keyboard you have. Some run on disposable batteries. These don’t need to be charged. Others run on solar power. These don’t need to be charged, instead requiring natural light to recharge (if your workstation is not in a place that gets a lot of natural light, though, then these are best avoided). The final type use rechargeable batteries, which — surprise, surprise — need to be recharged. This can usually be done using a USB cable and typically recharging doesn’t see them out of action. They just won’t be wireless, so to speak, while they’re hooked up to a power source.
