Logitech became famous for creating the world’s first solar PC keyboard [1] last year, but now Apple fans will also be able to surf the net with the same green vigor with the newly unveiled Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 [2]. Like the PC version, the solar keyboard can be powered by both indoor and outdoor light, and can be used in total darkness, after a full charge, for three months.

The Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 not only uses green energy, but is also environmentally friendly in how it is manufactured. The keyboard itself is made from renewable plastic, is PVC-free and fully recyclable [2]. By using photovoltaic cells, the keyboard makes sure that its carbon footprint will be significantly reduced.

In the company’s press release [3], Denis Pavillard, vice president of product marketing for Logitech’s keyboards and desktops said, “The keyboard is still the best input device for typing emails and IMs, updating your Facebook™ page or posting responses to your favorite blogs – and the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 is the next big innovation in keyboard technology.”  He added, “The Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard is powered by light but can work in total darkness for up to three months. Plus, with its PVC-free construction and fully recyclable packaging, it’s designed to minimize its footprint.”

Like the PC version, the Mac keyboard is available in five colors and works straight out of the box with no installation required. An app has also been created by the company so users can keep track of the battery power.
