The Duracell myGrid wireless charger has finally arrived.  We mentioned about this product last year in a post named, “No More Wires!”.

A little recap for those who have forgotten and for those who have never heard about it.

The myGrid wireless charger is a neat little charging pad, which can charge up to 4 devices without cables or adaptors.  You will need to attach a special Power Clip or Power Sleeve to your device and simply place it on the myGrid charging pad.  It’s that simple.  Duracell’s myGrid charger uses wireless conductive technology to charge devices.  Power Clips and Power Sleeves are available separately and are not supplied with the myGrid charger.

Power Clips are available for Nokia mobile phones, Mini USB and Micro USB sockets.  Power Sleeves are available for Apple’s  iPhone and iPod Touch and Blackberry’s Pearl and Curve smart phones.  No word yet on Power Clips and Power Sleeves for other brands, but the Mini USB and Micro USB Power Clips should allow a wide range of devices to be charged using the myGrid wireless charger.

So, if you have a lot of devices and a tangle of adaptors to charge these devices, reduce clutter with the Duracell myGrid wireless charger.

New Logitech Wireless Keyboard and Mouse with 3 Year Battery Life

Posted in Alkaline Batteries, Multi-purpose Products, Rechargeable Batteries on February 23rd, 2010 by

Wireless keyboards and mice are so handy and gives you a lot of freedom.  You don’t get all the cables tangled up and pulling the keyboard closer to you does not unplug the USB  or even the power cable from behind the computer.  More importantly you don’t have trails of extension cables for both your keyboard and mouse that you keep tripping over.  Yes, once you go wireless it will be very hard to turn back.

The only annoying thing about wireless keyboards and mice is the rate at which you need to change the batteries.  Even when using rechargeable batteries, these are drained very quickly and more time is spent recharging these.  It seems that Logitech has answered this issue with it’s new wireless keyboard and mouse.  The Wireless Desktop MK710 is powered by 4 ordinary AA size alkaline batteries, 2 each for the mouse and the keyboard.  However, these batteries are supposed to last upto 3 years before requiring a replacement.

There is nothing special about the batteries, it is the technology behind the keyboard and mouse which is helping conserve power.  Eventhough, this operates in the 2.4GHz frequency, it is neither Bluetooth nor Wi-Fi.  In fact Logitech uses an advanced 2.4GHz technology which is supposed to transmit information much faster and more efficiently than existing technologies.  The Wireless Desktop also addresses the issue of devices being in a constant active mode when they are actually idle.  Helping conserve more valuable battery power.  No wonder then that Logitech claim 3 year battery life on these products.

You can get longer lasting power by using Duracell’s Plus or Ultra batteries.  Actually, you may even be able to get more than 3 years battery life with the new Logitech Wireless keyboard and mouse.   The answer is simple, use Duracell rechargeable batteries.  You can recharge these Duracell batteries 100s of times, making it very economical and definitely more eco-friendly.
