But there are few things which you need to know about wireless keyboards before using them. This will also help to select the best wireless keyboard for your work. Currently there are three different types of wireless technologies which are applied to wireless keyboards depending on what purpose you are using it. Given below are the three technologies to help you understand the difference and make the right choice:

    • Infrared (IR) technology- the normal transmission distance of an infrared keyboard is two meters. But the main thing is it is cheap and if you have a small room it will just be able to do the work. It is best for the entry level home users who require wireless control in just about two meters.

    • Bluetooth technology- Bluetooth products have the ability to transmit signals to up to ten meters and they are best for office work. There are times when you have to give presentation and it is not always possible to sit in front of the computer typing and showing things at the same time. This is when the Bluetooth keyboards come handy. So if it is for any office work then you can choose a wireless keyboard that has got Bluetooth technology. The price is more than that of infrared keyboards.

    • Radio frequency technology- with this feature enabled in a wireless keyboard you can practically roam around your house and use it for any purpose you want. They have a range of more than 20 meters and are more expensive than the above mentioned keyboards.

    You can also select wireless keyboards according to the batteries that are used in them. Some have disposable batteries while some have rechargeable batteries. It is always better to choose the ones with rechargeable batteries.

    Wireless keyboards can be selected according to the purpose for which you need it.
