    Wireless Keyboard

    Right now I have a Logitech MX Laser mouse, but my keyboard is old, and wired. I want to move to a wireless keyboard without sacrificing or replacing my mouse, but I can't find any nice wireless keyboards that do not come with mice. If I buy a Logitech combo pack then will my current wireless transmitter/charger work for the keyboard also?

    Unfortunately,
    Only way to know for sure is to try it.
    Manufacturers can change design parameters but rarely/if ever notify end users of such a change.
    eg. TV remotes would be another example.
    "I know nothing."
    Cheers.

    If it's the MX700/1000, then it won't work

    I had the same deal. I bought a cheap Logitech combo, and ditched the cheap mouse.

    Wait... so what you did didn't work? (replacing the combo mouse with yours?)

    you can run both, you would just be taking up another usb port... you wouldnt need to use the mouse that came with the combo just keep it around for backup.

    Yeah, I couldn't run the MX1000 off the combo receiver, and couldn't run the keyboard off the MX1000 receiver

    So I basically have two receivers plugged in and an unused mouse sitting in a drawer.
