Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro feature

Most gamers are committed to using wired mouse and keyboards due to the reduced latency wired communication offers. However, in recent years wireless performance has improved considerably.

Logitech was one of the first brands to offer high-performance wireless gaming mice thanks to their Lightspeed wireless technology. Currently, Logitech has 9 wireless gaming mice listed on their store ranging from £52 to £130, but you can normally grab them cheaper via Amazon.

Razer, Corsair, Roccat, Asus, Thermaltake, EVGA and HyperX all have their own wireless gaming mice, though most of them are premium priced.

Wireless technology hasn’t been adopted by keyboards quite as much, with only a small number of big-name gaming brands offering this connectivity option.

One possible reason for this is the trend towards RGB. Many gaming keyboards offer extensive RGB, which will negatively affect battery life.

However, there are several smaller brands offering mechanical wireless keyboards. These typically connect via Bluetooth, so certain gamers may find that this doesn’t offer enough responsiveness for their needs. Many of the keyboards offer a wired option, too, with USB-C.

Best Wireless Mechanical Gaming Keyboards

I have not personally used many of these or reviewed any thoroughly, so I am listing them in order of price (high to low).

HP OMEN Spacer – Around £210

hp omen spacer
  • Tenkeyless
  • Warp Wireless Technology gives every game a reliable and consistent 2.4 GHz connection with Zero-Lag technology
  • Lightning-fast CHERRY MX Brown Switches with a 1ms response time
  • Up to 75 hours battery life
  • Wrist rest
  • Red/White LED

A very expensive keyboard, but it has a good battery life, looks attractive, and the wrist rest looks large and comfortable if you like them.

Logitech G915 Lightspeed – Around £200

  • Full-sized
  • LIGHTSPEED super-fast 1 ms performance or USB
  • GL mechanical switches – Clicky, tactile or linear
  • 30+ hours battery
  • 4.6/5 on Amazon

This is an ultra-thin keyboard while still offering mechanical switches. The Lightspeed tech is well established as being one of the best at low latency connectivity so this is an excellent option for any competitive gamers wanting a wirless options.

Battery life is less than expected for something so expensive, I am not sure if this is Logitech giving realistic figures or due to the fact the keyboard is so thin and has full RGB.

Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro – Around £178

Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro (Green Switch) - Wireless... Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro (Green Switch) - Wireless... No ratings yet £152.98Amazon Prime
  • Full size RGB keyboard
  • Green (tactile) or Yellow (linear/silent) Razer switches
  • Low latency Razer Hyperspeed wireless, Bluetooth or USB
  • Leatherette wrist rest
  • 200 hrs. with backlighting turned off, spectrum cycling backlight at 50% brightness is up to about 25hrs
  • 3.8/5 on Amazon

On paper, this looks like a better full-sized keyboard than the Logitech with excellent connectivity options, RGB, a wrist rest and potentially better battery life. Razer provides a detailed list of predicted battery life predictions, unlike other brands. It is worth noting that Amazon review place this a little behind Logitech

ASUS ROG Falchion-  Around £150

  • 65% keyboard
  • Cherry MX RGB switches with options of red, brown, blue, and silver
  • Wired USB or 1 ms at 2.4 GHz RF
  • Up to 450 hours of battery life with lights off
  • 4.6/5 on Amazon

A tiny 65% keyboard with a massive battery. I wish it had Bluetooth as this would be perfect for travelling.

Fantastic UK K2v2 (Keychron K2) – Around £87

No products found.

  • USB & Bluetooth 5.1
  • 75% keyboard / 85 key
  • Gateron switches options (Blue, Brown, Red)
  • Rechargeable battery with claimed 72 hours usage
  • No LED/RGB
  • 4.7/5 on Amazon

The Keychron K2 is an insanely popular wireless keyboard recommendation. However, it is not sold under this name in the UK. It appears to be rebranded as Fantastic UK K2v2 on Amazon but I am not 100% clear if it is exactly the same or a clone

No 2.4Ghz and no RGB might mean this is not ideal for some gamers, but it is a popular choice, and the 72 hours usage should be a realistic figure. It looks great too, if you like grey.

Redragon K596 Vishnu – Around £80

  • Tenkeyless
  • Only 10 hours battery life
  • 2.4Ghz Wireless with wired USB-C wired option
  • Linear Red Switches
  • RGB
  • 4.4/5 on Amazon

The terrible battery life means I’d only use this occasionally in wireless mode, but it could be good for travel or if you game in a living room from a couch.

Corsair K63 – Around £70

  • Tenkeyless
  • Ultra-fast 1ms 2.4GHz, Bluetooth, or USB wired
  • Cherry MX Red switches
  • 15 hours of rechargeable battery-powered wireless or 25 hours with low light and 75 hours with no backlighting
  • Red LED backlighting
  • 4.6/5 on Amazon

This is cheaper and has a better battery life than the Redragon while being from a more reputable brand. So this is the option I’d get if I want an affordable tenkeyless.
