Top 10 Best Portable Bluetooth Keyboards to Buy Online 2020

In recent years we’ve seen our handheld devices become smaller and more powerful. In fact, for many things, tablets and smartphones can almost completely eliminate the need for bulky laptops or desktop computers. But, unfortunately, when it comes to typing, flat screens aren’t quite as effective as physical keyboards.

Luckily, there’s an impressive range of small, portable Bluetooth keyboards available that can transform any device into an almost full-featured computer. The only problem is finding the right one. In this guide, we’ll go over the things you should look out for when deciding on the best portable Bluetooth keyboard for you. At the end, we’ve also got a list of our 10 favorites to help you get started.

How to Choose a Portable Bluetooth Keyboard – Buying Guide

Finding the right keyboard is going to depend largely on your preferences as well as the situations you plan on using it in. So don’t forget to keep these things in mind when looking at your options.

Size Determines Comfortability and Portability

When it comes to deciding on the size of your keyboard, consider where you’ll be using it, whether it will move often, and how much you plan on typing.

Smaller Keyboards May Leave Your Hands Feeling Cramped

Smaller Keyboards May Leave Your Hands Feeling Cramped
When it comes to portability, the thought is often “smaller is better.” But that can’t be said for portable keyboards. Although smaller keyboards do indeed take up less space, they also give your hands less room to move around the keys and could leave you feeling uncomfortable or more prone to mistakes.
For the most comfortable spacing, look for a keyboard that says it’s full-sized, or about 11 inches wide.

Folding Keyboards Pack Down Smaller but Have Their Own Problems

Folding Keyboards Pack Down Smaller but Have Their Own Problems
To save on space without giving up finger room, look for a keyboard that folds in half or thirds. However, these can sometimes come with their own set of problems. For one thing, more moving parts means more things that can break.
Some folding keyboard designs also add in a gap that runs down the middle to accommodate the bend, which could be a problem if you don’t type “properly,” with your right and left hands staying on their respective halves. Folding keyboards are also less likely to have some of the extra buttons and features that non-folding ones do.

If You’re Using It with a Tablet or Smartphone, Look for One with a Built-In Stand

If You’re Using It with a Tablet or Smartphone, Look for One with a Built-In Stand
Having a separate physical keyboard for your smartphone or tablet can completely eliminate the need for expensive, bulky laptops. However, screen-only devices can be hard to use if you don’t have a stand to keep them upright.
Getting a separate stand could solve this problem, and it would be helpful if you intend to use it regularly. But if you’re only going to need a stand while using your keyboard, it might make sense to look for a keyboard that has a built-in stand. This way, you have one less thing to carry and one less thing to forget.

Check the Battery Life – Active and Standby

Check the Battery Life – Active and Standby
The last thing you want to do is pull out your keyboard to get some work done only to realize that it’s dead. To minimize this risk, it’s important to keep battery life in mind when making your choice, especially if you’re not able to charge it regularly or go for long periods between uses.
Look at both its active battery life (how long it will last while connected and in use) and standby life (how long it will last while on but not in use).

Consider Extra Features Like a Trackpad or Number Pad

Consider Extra Features Like a Trackpad or Number Pad
If you need functionality beyond what your standard QWERTY keyboard offers, you’re in luck because there are some portable keyboards that carry extra features such as trackpads and number pads.
Having a trackpad on your keyboard could be good for those who like to use their laptops on a stand, while number pads are great for data input. Just remember that the more features a keyboard has, the larger it’s likely to be.

How to Clean Your Portable Bluetooth Keyboard

How to Clean Your Portable Bluetooth Keyboard
Portable keyboards are often subject to more mess than a standard computer or laptop keyboard. On top of the messes that come along with being open on top of your desk, they often get tossed into bags without a case and are handled more often. So here are some tips to clean your keyboard.
Start by powering it off. Turn it upside down and give it a firm shake to loosen any debris. Feel free to give it a couple of taps on the bottom side for good measure. Use compressed air to blow off dust. Try tilting your keyboard at a 75º angle while spraying to ensure that the particles come off properly.
For anything stuck on your keys and in the spaces between, use a cotton swab and a bit of rubbing alcohol to give it a good scrub. Do this often to ensure that you’re not getting any major build up.

Summary

There you have it–a quick guide to finding the right portable Bluetooth keyboard for you! When choosing a keyboard, it’s all about striking a balance between function and comfort. It’s best to go with one that works for you, which may not always be the fanciest or best-looking.
