But if you like a mobile-friendly keyboard, or just like another aesthetics for your desktop.There are a few options available.

 

Here Are the Best Bluetooth Mechanical Keyboards 2019

 

Vermilo VB87M: Best All-Around Option

Vermilo, a Chinese seller who is famous among mechanical keyboard enthusiasts, sells, which is probably the most widely used non-tanless Bluetooth mechanical design. VB87M is essentially a product similar to that of its VA87M, which includes a Bluetooth module and a battery. Plastic cases and high-end PBT keycaps are offered in different colors, including a lining side-printed option that preserves legends under continuous typing. Although the price is high and to a lesser extent the ancient Mini-USB (not Micro-USB) is a bitmaker, this is the most reliable design that I’ve tried, and for many years my personal “daily driver” is.

The VB87M is manufactured in small batches and it is not often in stock, but it goes on sale at MassDrop for around $ 140 per month. A wide selection of different colors, LED backlight colors, and cherry or gator on switches is available. Topre key switches, a small Vermilo design with VB67M is unfortunately out of production.

Anne Pro: For Those Who Want Mobile Flexibility

At the moment, Anne Pro ($ 90) is probably the most popular 60% Bluetooth Keyboard Keyboard design. This is due to the combination of easy mobile support with an aimed Android programming app, easy availability and full RGB LED support from vendors like Amazon. The layout of keys and lighting can be re-arranged in almost any fashion, which is particularly helpful for some extent limited 60% design. The board comes with the PBT keypaps from the factory, a standard ANSI system that is compatible with aftermarket pap, and it comes with a free USB Bluetooth adapter in the package. Gatoron switches are available in blue, brown and red design, and white or black keys / cases are sold.

Logitech G613: Wireless Options For Gamers

Logitech sank one toe or two in the mechanical keyboard pool, but the $ 150 G613 is their first wireless model … and the first “gaming” wireless keyboard I have never seen. It comes with a claimed reaction time with standard Bluetooth or Logitech’s “LightSpeed” USB Wireless Dongle. Unfortunately, that connection flexibility means little hardness in other areas: it comes with only full-sized layouts (plus additional programmable macro keys) and Logitech proprietary Romer-G switch, which are not compatible with aftermarket keypad. There are additional media and connection keys, but without backlighting to save the battery, the Logitech says that it can last up to 18 months on two AAs.

Royal Kludge RK61: Budget Bluetooth Option

Royal Kludge RK61 ($ 45) is a budget option for those who want a small keyboard, but do not particularly care about Anne Pro’s RGB LED and programmability. Plastic case and kailash switch are cheaper than choices, and the models are available with white LEDs. Somewhat iridescent colors, which can not be adjusted except for brightness. If you are interested in shopping, keep in mind that in some early versions of this board, there are no arrow clusters (also in the function layer). Whatever you want is the image above, on the arrow, menu, right Alt, And the right control button. Function keys can not be added again, in which there are strange F11 and F12 keys on [and]. Key switch options are also limited: At present, both Black and White Case / KeyCap models come with Blue Switch designs.

Happy hacking keyboard Professional BT: A significant import for programmers

Custom-layout, top-switched Happy hacking keyboard is a favorite for designer programmers and general Geeks. But it has yet to catch up with more pedestrians. The Japanese manufacturer had created a bluetooth model last year. Like the original HHKB, it is a bit strange: instead of an internal rechargeable battery, it uses a pair of AA installed on the back in the “hump”. Professional BT model is offered in conjunction with key legends or in a single 45-gram top-swipe design.

Importing it from Japan will be extremely expensive. Some sellers who offer it for sale in the United States, start at around $ 300 and go upstairs. (For reference, this is about $ 100 more than the wired version.) There is a lot of money to spend on wireless functionality, especially if you are not already familiar with the function-heavy HHKB layout, and this standard cherry Will not work with -Style replacement keyps

 

Plum Nano 75: 75% Layout with “Topre Clone” on a Budget

The revised “75%” layout of the Plum Nano 75 is surprisingly flexible, and its electrostatic (“topre clone”) key switches provide a unique experience for typists. Although the case of beige plastic and funnel are not very prominent. Unlike HHKB, cross-size stem cells are compatible with cherry-style replacement funnel. A Windows application allows for more or less unlimited programmability, including RGB backlighting. Usually, plum keyboards are not stocked in the US or Europe. But some vendors sell the design to 35-grams and 45-gms of alixpress for $ 170. It is also sometimes seen on MassDrop.

Matias Laptop Pro: Only Mac-Specific Wireless Options

This weird looking design is the only Bluetooth mechanical model specifically designed for MacOS. Presented with only the Matthias Alps-style “quiet click. Mechanical switch and a unique layout, you will not be able to use this keyboard with a third-party keyboard. This is one of the big, heavy designs of this list, which weighs more than two pounds. At $ 170, this is a cost premium for Mac users – they want to stick to more traditional layouts and simply deal with “false” legends.

DREVO Calibur: A Mid-Size Budget Option

DREVO Calibur ($ 60) uses a contrasting layout, a ten-width width that cuts the dedicated function line for long, slender case. That said, it provides low price with full RGB LED, although programmable lights and keys seem absent. Cherry Clone Switches are introduced in Blue, Brown, Red and Black varieties. With extensive availability on Amazon and a low $ 60 value tag, this is a decent option. If you want something smaller than full size, but 60% are not like the layout agreement. Unfortunately, this is only available in gray / white color color options. But it is easy to find replacement funnel for ANSI layout.

Custom design: when nothing will happen

Looking at the limited options for Bluetooth and the unity of mechanical keyboard enthusiasts for their own roll. There are some custom-made keyboard designs that add batteries and Bluetooth controllers to an existing layout. If you can program your own layout and combine your own key in PCB (or do custom wiring yourself also). Then you can use Raspberry Pie Zero W for modifying or making your own Bluetooth mechanical. Must be able to use popular add-ons like Keyboard. It’s not easy, fast or cheap, but it’s very fun for the right type of geek.
