Wireless Keyboard Mouse Combo

If you have a tablet device or even a laptop with a small keyboard and a trackpad, you will know that it is not always easy to navigate and type. All tablets are touchscreen and even though the “keys” for typing can be quite accessible, it is not really designed for typing more than a few lines. The solution is to get a wireless keyboard mouse combo.

And one thing I personally dislike are the trackpads that come with virtually all laptops, be they PC or Apple. They can be quite difficult to use in some cases trying to manipulate the cursor and especially when highlighting text or areas of the screen.

Is a wireless keyboard mouse combo the solution?

So what is the solution? For me it is a wireless keyboard mouse combo that solves both problems. There are many different makes and options these days, like a foldable wireless keyboard for ease of transportation or an ultra thin wireless version for space saving and an ergonomic look. Most are also rechargeable so you should always have it available to use even when away from your home or office. A three month battery life gives plenty of usage per charge which can be carried out with a micro USB cable.

What are the features to look for?

Most have features like an intelligent auto sleep function and an on off button that will help to preserve power for even longer and extend the life of the battery. Plug and play is standard for these devices so there is no need to download drivers, just plug the small wireless receiver into a USB port and you are ready for action.

And talking of action, all keyboards have a slightly different feel when pressing the keys. There are some great options if you are looking for a low profile wireless keyboard. For instance the Seenda Slim is a popular model with quiet keys and a responsive touch.

It does lack the numeric keypads so if you are particularly looking for that, then something like the Sonkir K-18 Ultra Thin Keyboard Mouse Combo might be better suited.

What about connectivity?

And another issue some users may worry about is the connection and whether it is stable or not. It is very frustrating when typing an important email or document and suddenly the keyboard or mouse loses the connection. The above Sonkir model uses the advanced 2.4Ghz wireless protocol to use one shared receiver for both the mouse and keyboard and therefore tying up just one USB port. With a range of up to 10 metres it is more than adequate for most users.

The majority of portable wireless keyboard mouse combos will be compatible with all versions of the Windows and Mac operating systems but check to be sure before purchasing.

If gaming is your thing, then a specifically designed wireless mechanical keyboard will be top of your list. These are high performance wireless keyboards with programmable keys and will make a …

The waterproof element varies from speaker to speaker in so much as how much water and how long the speaker can withstand. Something like the Tribit Bluetooth can withstand up to 30 minutes in three feet of water which provides plenty of assurance about its durability. Others will resist gentle water spray and splashing but can’t be fully submerged. So pool parties and even a long shower won’t present a problem for the more water resistant models.

Portable Wireless Hard Drive

Which portable wireless hard drive is best? Given it is a relatively new way of backing up data as the vast majority of external hard drives are connected by USB cable, this is a relevant question. Normally this would be the easiest way to back up or copy your data from a computer. But when you are wanting to back up say photos and videos from a smart phone or tablet, then a wireless external drive is an alternative to the cable variety.

How can I use my wireless external drive?

It should also be remembered that a wireless portable external drive is not just for copying or backing up, but can be used as a media streaming source for your smartphone or tablet. These devices don’t typically come with huge storage options, most being between 16 and 128GB. Some allow Micro SD cards to extend the storage but if you own an apple device, this is not an option. Videos in particular can take up very large disk space.

If you are travelling then a portable wireless drive is a great option to be able to watch movies or transfer data to and from your device. USB ports are not always readily available for a conventional external hard drive so there is much greater flexibility with a wireless version. Most PC’s and laptops now have a wireless card so connecting to your computer couldn’t be easier to back up files.

In recent years the solid state (SSD) external drive has come to the fore. Unlike conventional drives that use a disk to write to and have moving mechanical parts, solid state drives use flash memory and therefore are more suited to being moved about for those doing a lot of travelling. And most have a battery which adds to their ability to be used when on the go. Some drives even have an SD card slot to back up content from the drive or to make it easy to transfer photos from your phone or tablet.

If you buy a wireless hard drive with wifi you will want to check the apps that come with the drive. This will in the main be with your smartphone or tablet device.

Wireless connections aren’t quite as fast as wired but they will still give you fast transfers than won’t make you wait too long for data to be transferred. And the convenience of not having to plug and unplug every time will make your wireless external hard drive ofr smartphone, PC mac or tablet a great option for your storage and streaming needs.

Bluetooth Headphones Over The Ear

You can’t really argue about the comfort and ease of use of bluetooth headphones for over the ear. Without those annoying cables, they give greater freedom of movement and flexibility when out and about. In recent years audio quality has risen while the costs have dropped. That has been since Apple introduced their Airpods with their wireless element, there has been a greater than ever demand for this type of headphone.

So what are the pros and cons of the two types that are Bluetooth heaphones on the ear or good in ear headphones. Over the ear headphones will give a greater noise cancelling element and produce a fuller sound but are obviously larger and more bulky than in ear phones. There are foldable Bluetooth headphones which are compact and make this type far easier to carry. This will be an important factor in where and how you will be wearing them. For instance if you are travelling a lot, particularly on trains, then the ability to cut out external noises will be more important. However if you are doing a lot of exercise like running or working out in the gym, then in ear wireless earphones will much more likely appeal because of their size and weight.

When wearing Bluetooth wireless headphones it is important to keep them within range of your smartphone or tablet. Unlike wired headphones, it is very easy to wander about and forget that you may suddenly get outside the range of your device. There are few things more frustrating than have your audio drop out momentarily or even for longer periods. Bluetooth connectivity can sometimes be slightly problematic, either getting the devices paired, or maintaining the connection. Firstly always check that your headphones are compatible with your smart device and then make sure that there aren’t too many other devices connected wirelessly. Overload can affect the ability to connect or stay connected via Bluetooth.

There is such a choice these days that it is difficult to decide what are the best Bluetooth wireless headphones over the ear or in ear. It is best to go on Amazon or Google and check reviews and find out what other people are saying. Then decide what type you want. You might want to find the best bluetooth headphones under 200 for cycling or running so check what people are using for those activities.

There are loads of quality brands like Beats, Sony, Sennheiser, AKG and  Bose so you will be spoilt for choice. Whatever make and model you choose, the freedom that these types of headphones offer will enhance your music listening for a long time to come.…
