If you want to be able to listen to music remotely or need a way to use your wireless mouse and keyboard with your PC, finding the best USB Bluetooth adapters is the solution. We researched some of the best-selling items and top brands to put together our USB Bluetooth adapter review. But before we get to the must-see items, let’s take a closer look at some of the key features you need to know about when shopping.
Range: If you’re going to be using a wireless mouse and keyboard right by your PC, this might not matter much to you. But, if you want to listen to music wirelessly while cleaning at home, it does.
Low Energy: Bluetooth 4.0 introduced the awesome Low Energy feature. It puts itself to sleep when not actively being used so it uses less energy and really extends battery life. Sometimes, it extends it by a lot.
Supports Windows: All but 1 of our top picks is compatible with Windows. If you’re using an older version of Windows, you may need to install some drivers first. But don’t worry, everything you need is included or easily accessed.
Plug n Play: Some of our picks are super easy to use. With newer versions of Windows, you often don’t have to do anything at all. Just plug them into your USB port and they’re all ready to go.
Supports Data Transfer: Some of these adapters allow you to transfer different files, audio, and voice over Bluetooth connection. It’s an awesome extra but not necessary for sound quality. If this is something you want, don’t worry. You’ll find it here.
Warranty: It’s always good to have a warranty, especially with a universal USB Bluetooth adapter. You’ll find a little bit of everything here with warranty periods going from 30 days all the way up to 2 years.
Now that you’ve learned about the main features in our Bluetooth USB adapter buying guide, you should have some idea of what you need to look for. Let’s move into our reviews. If you’re in a hurry, check out our top and budget picks first. They’ll give you a good idea of the kind of things that are available. Stick around until the end if you can!
