Wireless mechanical keyboards are preferred for writers, programmers, gamers, and individuals with good taste in keyboards.
Today, to help you make an informed decision, we have brought you a list based on key factors such as size, build quality, response rate, battery, price, and additional features.
1. ASUS ROG Claymore II Wireless Modular
- Brand: Asus
- Layout: Both 100% and 80%
- Number of Keys: 108 Keys
- Connectivity: Wireless/Wired
- Hot-Swappable: Yes
When you open up the box, there are two sections. It’s due to its detachable numpad. It’s a nice touch if you work a lot with numbers (you can attach it to either side). In the box, I also found a wristrest that was nice looking and really cushy. You will also find a wireless dongle and wire in the box, which allows you to choose wireless mode or wired mode.
You can go from flat to angled in seconds; there are feet at the back of the keyboard. The keyboard itself is pretty stiff. I don’t recommend it, but even if you try to break it, you can’t. Excellent build.
This keyboard has optical keyboard switches; it felt like I needed to use less force to press down a key, which gave me the illusion that I was typing faster, or maybe it wasn’t an illusion. With these switches, it took 40g of force to go 1.5mm before it actuated and 55g for the stroke to go down.
The RGB is done beautifully; it even has a battery indicator at the top of the keyboard, which will let you know when your keyboard battery is about to run out. I didn’t test this, but I trust Asus when they said you can get 144 hours of battery life with lights off and 43 hours with lights on. Of course, it’s rechargeable.
You can do a lot of customization when you download their software. You can see how the RGB works when it goes to sleep, and you can even see in their soft how much battery is left on your keyboard, so a lot of customization if you are into that. You can spend a lot of time on that.
I loved it. It was sturdy; I couldn’t break it even when I tried, and the keycaps and layout were great. While I was working on it, it really gave me the illusion that I was typing faster, which also led to a lot of misclicks, but that’s just me. For this price tag, I was expecting a pretty good keyboard, and I got it.
2. Cooler Master SK622
- Brand: Cooler Master
- Layout: 80%
- Hot-swappable: No
- Number of Keys: 61 Keys
- Wireless Connectivity: Bluetooth 4.0
My second recommendation is the Cooler Master SK622 keyboard, which I personally found to be quite impressive.
First of all, it may not have the flashy unboxing experience you’d get with keyboards like the Asus, but it certainly delivers where it matters.
Inside the box, you’ll find the essentials, like a high-quality braided USB-C to USB-A cable (with an appropriate length as well), a keycap puller for those who enjoy customizing their keyboard and, of course, the keyboard itself, neatly wrapped in a small bag.
The first time I held it, it felt incredible; I mean, the weight, build quality, and appearance left a favorable first impression.
The aluminum top plate added a sense of stability with minimal flex. And because of that aluminum plate, I feel like the weight was heavenly balanced. (somewhere near a pound)
The SK622 features ergonomic keycaps and low-profile double-shot PBT MX red mechanical switches. They provide a noticeable clicking sound, but I found it to be quite pleasing, unlike the typically distracting “thug dug” sound of mechanical keyboards.
And as it’s a 60% layout, keys are pretty cluttered. I mean, it’s packed with extra shortcuts that you can access using a special “function” button.
Over two weeks of use, I discovered that it may not be the go-to choice for gaming due to its smaller size and lower polling rate (125 Hz) in wireless mode. However, for tasks like writing emails, engaging in chats, and conducting research, it truly shines.
And yeah! About the RGB, it features backlight keys that can be customized through the function buttons and Master Plus software. You decide what is best for you.
With two 2000mAh batteries, it easily lasts three to four days without the backlight on; I had no idea how long it could last with the backlight on.
In terms of connectivity, it offers both wired (USB type-C) and wireless (Bluetooth 4.0, supporting up to 3 devices) options.
One thing I need to mention is that it didn’t come with a dongle, so you need to have Bluetooth functionality on your PC or whatever device you want to use.
In my personal opinion, the Cooler Master SK622 is a reliable keyboard that strikes the right balance between comfort and functionality.
3. Logitech G915 LIGHTSPEED TKL
- Brand: Logitech
- Layout: 80%
- Hot-swappable: No
- Number of Keys: 90 Keys
- Wireless Connectivity: Bluetooth 5.0 and 2.4GHz Dongle
Next, we have here a Logitech G915 LightSpeed TKL, a game-changing contender in the wireless mechanical keyboard space.
When I got my hands on the box, I was a little surprised to see how small and slim it was.
Upon opening it up, I found the keyboard at the top. Then some user manuals and a USB-A to micro USB (which I didn’t like because these cables are fragile and not fast enough like USB-C).
After putting away the box, I started to test the keyboard. I noticed that the tough aircraft-grade aluminum frame was providing a deep sense of stability, and as it’s a low profile keyboard, I didn’t even need wrist support while typing.
Regarding the keycaps, they were unusually low, making it feel like I was typing directly on the desk. Additionally, it’s disappointing to note that the keycaps are just standard ABS, which is a letdown considering the keyboard’s price.
Not just that, here the keycaps are not exactly fully stable inside the switch. If you shake it, you’ll notice a rattle. If you ask me about the switches, they come in three flavors, with tactile being my favorite.
Next, the typing experience on this keyboard was super-satisfying and not very loud. Even when gaming, it sounds spectacular. You won’t hear that nasty ringing ping when you type fast, as I know you do.
And if you take a look at RGB, and it uses LIGHTSYNC RGB technology with 16.8 million colors, which remains accurate when adjusted in the software. However, it’s worth noting that RGB lighting does consume more battery power.
To save battery, I recommend running it at 25 percent or 50 percent brightness and keeping the inactivity lighting at its default settings.
By the way, the battery of the keyboard is quite good, and a single charge can last up to a few days if you turn off the backlights. However, during intense gaming, it can go up to 35 to 40 hours.
So it was a nice keyboard and I really loved the part about it’s profile. However, it’s not budget-friendly, it’s just a few bucks less than the full-size G915, which isn’t fair.
4. Corsair K63 Wireless Special Edition Mechanical
- Brand: Corsair
- Layout: 60%
- Number of Keys: 87 Keys
- Hot swappable: No
- Wireless Connectivity: 2.4GHz wireless and Bluetooth 4.2
The Corsair K63 wireless keyboard has been around for some years; lucky for us, it’s still as worthy as it was intended.
So first off, when I opened the box, I found the keyboard. Underneath that, there was a ton of other stuff, including user manuals (which I am never going to read), a Micro USB cable for wired connection, a wireless dongle, and a detachable wrist rest (rubberized, not very premium).
After putting it on the desk, I sensed that the keyboard is very, very solid and rugged, with absolutely zero flex, but the plastic design does feel a bit cheap. The nice rubberized wrist rest included in the box attaches easily.
Turning it around on the backside, there are four rubber pads so it doesn’t slide on your desktop, and then two feet so you can slightly elevate its backside.
Next up, the keycaps. The keycaps are made of ABS plastic, which is just okay but not super premium. However, considering the price, I wouldn’t be too concerned about the material.
And then, a very important thing, is the key switches in this model. It is Cherry MX Red. They’re your typical gaming switch because they’re linear and very quiet.
For extras, this keyboard plays defense with 128-bit AES encryption to guard your keystrokes from nosy hackers. Both pleasant and surprising, in a good way.
And Yeah! The battery’s nice enough to last 2 days without backlighting and 20 hours with it on, making it suitable for extended writing and gaming sessions.
Not too bad for a wireless keyboard. You can always plug it in while it’s charging to use it wired.
For connectivity, I’ve tested that it offers both wired USB and wireless connectivity, including 2.4GHz wireless technology and a dongle.
And the price is set below 100 bucks, which I think is cool for a keyboard that knows how to be adjustable to your liking.
5. Keychron K13 Pro Ultra-Slim
- Brand: Keychron
- Layout: 80%
- Number of Keys: 90 Keys
- Wireless Connectivity: Bluetooth and Type-C cable
- Hot Swappable: Yes
I understand the whole trend of keychron and that’s why I’ve thought of adding it to our list. The good thing is that it didn’t fail to surprise
Opening up the box, I see a fully assembled keyboard itself; above that, there were all the accessories, like Mac and Windows keycaps (nice touch), a switch puller, a keycap puller and a USB cable for charging.
So when I saw the keyboard, I didn’t think it was going to be strong. But then I saw that the top frame is made out of aluminum and the bottom plate is ABS, giving out no actual flex.
The keys are made using low profile double-shot PBT keycaps, which are very stable. Larger keys (like spacebar, shift, and enter) wobble a bit, but you can easily replace the stabilizers.
Now I might add one thing that these low profile keys don’t require wrist support when typing. As for typing, it’s very nice to type on the keyboard, not leaving any complaints behind when writing emails.
This keyboard features Low-Profile Gateron IP 2.0 Red/Brown switch mechanical switches to show off it’s responsiveness.
At the back, there are two included position feet, which provide a total of three typing angles: 3.37, 4.2, and 6.7 degrees.
And for RGB, it comes with 22 modes of backlight settings. You can further fine-tune the RGB hue, saturation, brightness, and effect speed yourself.
Now, if you’re after the battery, then I would say it has a 2000 mAh rechargeable Li-polymer battery. It’s impressive and can last up to 4 to 5 days without backlighting and 1 day with active RGB lighting.
Connectivity options include 3 Bluetooth devices and type-C cable connections, and it uses Bluetooth version 5.1 for reliable and fast wireless connectivity.
As for the price, it’s just $125, which is a bit higher than a regular mechanical keyboard. However, the vibe it gives is worth it.
In conclusion, that is all you need to know about the best keyboards you can find on UK marketplaces.

Few years back I started to work from home, I needed a keyboard, I researched mechanical keyboard from A to Z. After that I needed a monitor, after that I needed a mouse, after that I needed desk, chair and other accessories. I did so much research and I figured this can't all go to waste and I started writing about what I know. Keyboards, Monitors, Mouses and other accessories. You can also at WolfofTablet where I cover a lot of stuff about iPads and Android Tablets. In the free time I like to play PS5 and iOS games.
