Wireless keyboard and mouse - Possible to use second pair with original USB receiver.

I ordered the following device for the office with Amazon and love it.

http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Wireless-Keyboard-Optical-Mouse/dp/B00B7GV4JC/ref=cm_cd_al_qh_dp_i

If I buy the exact same purchase again, will the second keyboard and mouse work with the original USB receiver? It wouldn't surprise me if Amazon's contracted manufacturer assigns some type of ID to each wireless mouse/keyboard/USB combo to assure that two users of the wireless wireless mouse/keyboard/USB combo sitting next to each other don't interfere with each other. I've posted the question with Amazon, but am yet to hear back.

Yes you can, these are rebadged Logitech components, the nano recievers work on all 16 2.4GHz channels and pair with the hardware.

I agree with MASQ - I think you can, but I don't think the nano receiver is the Unifying Nano Receiver that Logitech use.  I doubt you'll be able to pair a second keyboard and mouse at the same time, like you can do with the unifying receiver.

You probably can pair a second keyboard and mouse to the receiver but that will stop the first set from working until you pair them up again, then the second set will stop working.... and so on.
