Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard
The best Bluetooth keyboard for most people
The Logitech K380 offers the best balance of comfort, features, and price.
*At the time of publishing, the price was $40.
Logitech K380 for Mac Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard
For Mac users
This version of the K380 has a macOS-specific layout with a Cmd key, so the Fn and Ctrl keys are where Mac users expect.
May be out of stock
You can pair the Logitech K380 or its macOS sibling with up to three devices and switch between them with a press of a button; we’re still waiting for most Bluetooth keyboards to catch up to this useful, years-old design. The keyboard itself is comfortable and responsive. It’s also solid enough for desktop or lap use, yet it’s small and light enough for you to slip it in a bag and take it with you throughout the day. Logitech says the K380 has up to two years of battery life with heavy use—defined as eight hours a day, five days a week—and our writers and editors have used it for long enough to support that claim. The K380’s unusual round keys may take some getting used to, and the keyboard lacks backlighting like other Bluetooth keyboards in this price range.
Logitech K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard
A wireless keyboard with a number pad
The Logitech K780 is more enjoyable to use and more affordable than any other wireless keyboard with a built-in number pad. Plus, it can connect via Bluetooth or USB dongle.
If you need a keyboard with a built-in number pad or want to connect to a computer or device without Bluetooth, we suggest the Logitech K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard. The K780 also comes with Logitech’s Unifying wireless USB dongle, but it is otherwise very similar to the K380—offering the same comfortable round keys, multidevice Bluetooth pairing, and estimated two years of battery life. It adds a number pad and a stylish built-in stand for smartphones and tablets, too. It’s less portable than the K380, and the addition of a number pad pushes your mouse arm to the right, worsening ergonomics. It also lacks a backlight.
Satechi Bluetooth Wireless Numeric Keypad
A standalone number pad
Satechi’s Bluetooth number pad is a light and comfortable model that’s easy to take with you.
If you don’t use a number pad frequently but do need one sometimes, we recommend the K380 paired with a standalone numpad. Satechi’s Bluetooth Wireless Numeric Keypad is inexpensive, responsive, and equipped with navigation-key functions. Satechi seems to offer the best options when it comes to Bluetooth number pads, and this particular number pad is still the best bet when you consider its value.
