The 6 Best Wireless Keyboards - Winter 2023 Reviews

Updated
Best Wireless Keyboards

At the start of the new millennium, Microsoft released a keyboard and mouse combination featuring a new wireless technology: Bluetooth. Soon after, Apple entered the scene, offering its sleek white and chrome keyboards. Today, the keyboard market offers plenty of wireless options, from full-size gaming units with split millisecond latency to straightforward Bluetooth boards just for typing. Wireless keyboards offer you several advantages, from portability to cleaner work surfaces. But with all these wireless options, it can be hard to pick one that works best for you.

It's important to start by knowing what type of connection you need. While many higher-end keyboards connect wirelessly either with a USB receiver or Bluetooth, some cheaper models only use Bluetooth. Likewise, battery life is another consideration. Wireless gaming keyboards typically come with a rechargeable battery, but you'll have to charge them more frequently, while simpler keyboards typically use disposable batteries with much longer lives.

We've done the hard work of testing over 185 keyboards, including over 60 wireless units. Below we've made a list of our best wireless and best Bluetooth keyboards. If you're specifically looking for a wireless keyboard to use for gaming, you can check out our best gaming keyboards article. Alternatively, you can check out our picks for the best keyboards and the best mechanical keyboards we've tested.


  1. Best Wireless Keyboard

    You might be surprised that our best wireless keyboard list starts with a tiny gaming keyboard, but it shouldn't be surprising, considering it's the SteelSeries Apex Pro Mini Wireless. Despite its small size, this keyboard is a powerhouse with exceptionally low latency, solid build quality, and your choice of wireless connectivity options. You can connect with the USB receiver when you need the lowest latency, or via Bluetooth when you want to save power or connect to multiple devices. You can also use it wired while it's charging, and the battery will last between 30 to 40 hours, depending on how you use it.

    The leading feature of this keyboard is that it allows you to adjust the individual pre-travel distance of each key. It means you can have a more sensitive WASD cluster for gaming while keeping the rest of your keyboard right at the level you like for typing, allowing for a great range in how you use it. It may look like a gaming board, but it's a versatile compact model that cleans up any loose cables on your desk, freeing up a lot of space for your mouse or keeping your laptop and notebook nearby.

  2. Best Upper Mid-Range Wireless Keyboard

    The Razer Pro Type Ultra may look like a straightforward office keyboard, complete with an Apple-inspired white and chrome aesthetic, but, like our first pick, the SteelSeries Apex Pro Mini Wireless, this is another versatile suitable for both competitive gamers and office workers looking to elevate their setup. Though it's comfortable thanks to the included ergonomic features, it isn't very portable, so it's best suited to permanent desk setups. It isn't lacking in connectivity options, as it comes with a Razer Productivity Dongle that also pairs with select Razer mice, like the Razer Pro Click. You can also pair it with up to three devices using Bluetooth. Gamers will appreciate the extremely low latency and the linear Razer Yellow switches inside the board, as these features provide a fluid and responsive in-game experience.

    Though, if there's one thing to note, you can only get this keyboard with linear switches. If you prefer tactile or clicky switches, you might want to check out the Logitech G715. It's another sleek-looking wireless model, and while it does cost a bit more than the Razer, the Logitech has full RGB lighting, a wider selection of switches, and the included cloud-shaped wrist rest adds a nice splash of whimsy to your setup.

  3. Best Mid-Range Wireless Keyboard

    The NuPhy Air75 is easily the best wireless mechanical keyboard you can get at a mid-range price point. Everything, from the solid build quality to impressive connectivity options, punches well above its weight. The keycaps on this keyboard feel great, and their short, tile-like design keeps your fingertips comfortably hovering right over them. There are two switches along the top of the board: one to ensure operating system compatibility and one to toggle between connection types. It pairs with up to three devices using Bluetooth, plus a fourth device with its USB receiver, and you can use it wired with its included USB-A to USB-C cable.

    However, it's important to note a few things about this unit. Firstly, while it does have full RGB backlighting, the key legends aren't shine-through, so you can't easily read them in the dark. Secondly, the USB receiver sometimes drops the signal, but you can fix this issue by switching to a Bluetooth connection or unplugging and re-plugging the receiver. These are only minor issues that don't impact the overall usability of the keyboard, and it's still one of our favorite wireless units in the office.

    If you'd prefer something more similar to a laptop keyboard in feel, we recommend the Logitech MX Keys. It's a straightforward wireless model that comes in a full-size format with a Numpad or a compact mini size that's a bit more portable. Rather than the mechanical switches found in the NuPhy, the Logitech uses scissor switches with a distinct tactile bump and a good overall typing feel. Also, the Logitech has shine-through keycaps, meaning you can read the key legends in the dark.

  4. Best Lower Mid-Range Wireless Keyboard

    At a lower mid-range price point, we recommend the Keychron K10. Out of the box, this full-size mechanical unit boasts an excellent typing experience that feels and sounds pleasant. It lacks a USB receiver and only connects with Bluetooth, but it supports pairing with up to three devices simultaneously. You can also use it wired while it charges, but since its battery life stretches between 70 to 240 hours, depending on whether you use the backlighting, you probably won't need to very frequently.

    While we recommend the full-size K10 here, all of the models in Keychron's extensive K-series lineup are great choices. This series consists of wireless mechanical keyboards in all configurations, from the compact, low-profile Keychron K7, to the TenKeyLess Keychron K8. You'll find a size and style that best suits your setup. Every Keychron board has a compatibility toggle on the top to switch between Windows and macOS. They come with additional system-specific keycaps, so you won't have to remember where the modifier keys are if you tend to switch systems.

  5. Best Budget Wireless Keyboard

    Wireless keyboards tend to come at a higher price point, but you can still find good units on a budget, like the Logitech Signature K650. Thanks to its built-in wrist rest and multiple incline settings, you'll be comfortable typing all day. It also has deep-set keys that are easy to reach without tilting your wrists upwards. Another benefit of this design is that the deep-set keys completely cover the switches, leaving no moving parts exposed and offering a bit of added protection from crumbs or small spills.

    As it's a budget model, it does lack some additional features, including backlighting, support for multi-device pairing, and a rechargeable battery, but it makes up for it. Instead, it has a row of media control keys along the top and two AA batteries for power that last for up to 36 months before you need to swap them out. You can connect this keyboard to your computer with Bluetooth or use the included Logitech USB receiver that allows you to connect with select Logitech mice at the same time.

  6. Best Cheap Wireless Keyboard

    The Logitech K380 is the best cheap wireless keyboard you can find. It's a popular model among students and on-the-go professionals thanks to its small footprint and thin profile. You can easily fit it into laptop bags or backpacks and use it in tight workspaces while still having enough room for your notebook and coffee. It also offers great wireless connectivity, as you can pair it with up to three devices at once using Bluetooth, making it a great choice if your mobile setup includes your phone, tablet, or laptop. While this keyboard feels similar to typing on a laptop keyboard, thanks to the premium scissor switches under the hood, typing can feel a little more cramped due to the smaller-than-average keycaps. Owing to their circular design, there's enough space between them that you can easily differentiate between them once you get used to it.

    However, if you need a cheap wireless unit with a Numpad for data entry, we recommend the Microsoft Bluetooth Keyboard. While this keyboard can only connect with one device at a time, it feels pretty well built and sturdy for a cheap keyboard, and it's a good value if you need the full-size layout. Its price tends to fluctuate, so it's best to purchase when it's on sale for about half its average price.

Our recommendations above are what we think are currently the best Bluetooth keyboards and wireless keyboards for most people. We factor in the price (a cheaper product wins over a pricier one if the difference isn't worth it), feedback from our visitors, and availability (no keyboard that is difficult to find or almost out of stock everywhere).

If you would like to do the work of choosing yourself, here is the list of all our wireless keyboard reviews. Be careful not to get too caught up in the details. While no product is perfect for every use, most keyboards are great enough to please almost everyone, and the differences are often not noticeable unless you really look for them.
