Why wouldn't they work? Keyboard takes fuck-all power unless you live in complete darkness 24/7 with absolutely no lights, it will work off almost any light source even the glare of your monitor

butt plug heat is better

They are such a fucking gimmick.

I had a K750 that went to shit after 6 months. When I tried to replace the CR2032 battery it was not possible.

Then I bought a K400+ which runs on AA batteries.

Steady core temperature offers a much better differential

Why the fuck wouldn't you just use AA/AAA rechargeable batteries?

You can even use a solar charger for them if you want.
>>
Even MARS1 is catching on to the fact that if you dont have the energy, you dont have the energy. They want to ship shitloads of single-use batteries with the MARS1 missions, because fuck solar. Use and throw away.

Because rechargeable sucks :^)

who needs solar mouse when you have wireless charging mousepads

>>62235762
Conceptually, that sounds pretty cool, but you know they'll just market it exclusively as tacky gaymer shit for years.

Have the keyboard in pic related that's good for occasional use in bed and stuff.

Problem there is routing it though

That is all its good for is gamer shit, they can't make a mouse that lasts with a AA or even a lithium battery if they want there stupid RGB leds so they have to make some induction charging shit.
They can make a good mouse with a decent DPI and response time that can runs for months off a AA if they get rid of the LEDs
>>62235926
They can make a wireless mouse that is just as good as a wired one if they wanted too, its not impossible, your not getting past 1ms response time anyway with usb 2
>>
>>62235379
Just buy one of those cheapo anker bluetooth keyboards.
I charge mine for 40 minutes once every two weeks and the keys actually feel really good for how cheap it is.
No need to spend a shit load of money just to avoid having to change batteries

I use my keyboard at least 3-4 hours a day.
I had to get a something running macos for school shit and I kinda dislike my Air's keyboard, especially because I make mistakes when I type slower than 70WPM
