4 Reasons To Use A Numeric Keypad


Why You Should Be Using A Numeric Keypad

Numeric keypads (also called number pad, numpad, or keyboard number keypads) are separate small keyboards used to input numbers and can be incredibly useful. Here are our top reasons you should be using a numeric keypad.

1 – Faster Number Entry

The numbers on a numeric keypad are laid out in a similar fashion to a calculator. The layout makes it faster, easier, and more efficient to enter a lot of numbers, and full-size keys improve speed and accuracy. Numeric keypads are favored by accountants, engineers, students, data specialists, and spreadsheet experts.

2 – Ergonomic Design

Numeric keypads can be placed wherever you’d like, meaning you can place the keypad where it’s most comfortable for your wrist and hand. Doing so reduces the stress and strain on your hand and makes repetitive tasks less taxing.

3 – Portable

Numeric keypads, like Penclic’s Number Pad N3 Office, are palm-size and easily portable. The USB connection is simple and eliminates the need for batteries, which allows the numeric keypad to easily connect to all major operating systems. For left-handed users, the numeric keypad can easily be located on the left side of a keyboard for ease of use.

4 – A Must-Have For Laptops

To maintain their portable size, the majority of today’s laptops lack a full keyboard numeric keypad. Instead, laptop users must rely on the alphanumeric keyboard number layout (which is similar to that of a typewriter). Having a separate numeric keypad is more convenient for users.

Numeric keypads are incredibly useful devices and can help make daily work easier for those entering numbers or completing mathematical tasks.
