Logitech Pop Keys mechanical keyboard, Pop mouse review
Style over functionality
Pop Keys design and performance
You can switch between devices easily by hitting the F1, F2 and F3 keys, and the switch itself is quite instantaneous. The keyboard is powered by two AAA batteries that are claimed to last over three years. There’s no way to test this claim, so we take Logitech’s word for it.

Software: Customisations galore
Logitech’s software for the POP series has built-in options to customise the various keys on the keyboard and the button on the mouse. It doesn’t have a learning curve, and the graphic representation of the keyboard and mouse makes it easy to understand and use.
You can remap the function keys and the emoji keys on the keyboard, which is a boon for those who don’t want all those shortcuts to eat into useful keys. For instance, we really missed the brightness controls on the keyboard so we remapped the F4 and F5 keys. It’s almost a mental strain to use the keys for something when the symbols say something else, but at least, using the software you don’t miss out on any feature.
The process of remapping the shortcut button on the mouse is the same as well, using the software. You can either use it as a shortcut for a single emoji, the whole emoji menu or some system function.
Verdict: Should you buy it?
Funky mechanical keyboard and mouse combo with excellent battery life to liven up your work desk.
