Wireless connectivity isn't among the most sought after features when it comes to the humble ye olde mechanical keyboard, but there are nevertheless many use cases, the most obvious being PC gaming from your couch. If that's something you do sometimes but not always, a budget option is probably in your sights. As far as budget wireless mechanical keyboards go, the Logitech G613 is officially our favourite.
Its cheapness doesn't reflect on performance: it's lightning quick, two AA batteries will keep it running for well over a year, and it has dedicated media controls. What's sacrificed is aesthetics, basically: don't expect fancy RGB stylings because there ain't any, and anyway, that's probably not what you want in a battery-fueled device.
The Logitech G613 usually retails for AU$199—cheap as far as wireless mechanical keyboards go—but Amazon currently has them for a measly AU$99. In May 2023, it may be that groceries are too expensive, but hey: this particular wireless keyboard isn't!
