ZAGG ZAGGkeys Folio Backlit Keyboard Case Cover for iPad Air - ZKFHFBKLIT105

The new ZAGGkeys Folio is a mere 7.6mm thin, just more than a quarter of an inch, and only 17.7mm, or about two-thirds of an inch, when holding your iPad. This makes it one of the thinnest keyboards available. But while it is smaller and easier to carry, it actually offers 30% more typing room than the competition. In addition, it features a pivoting hinge that allows you to place your iPad at virtually any viewing angle, just like a laptop screen. Open it up, set it to your preferred angle, and off you go typing in comfort.

The Folio zips along on a powerful battery that will keep it powered for up to three months of regular use between charges*. In addition it offers backlit keys that make typing in low light areas easy on the eyes, and responsive, island-style keys that provide a natural and speedy typing experience. With these features, and more, ZAGGkeys Folio is the all in one solution for typing on the go.

Features:

  • Patent pending design provides additional protection for your iPad.
  • A unique hinge design offers over 135° of viewing angles.
  • The Bluetooth® keyboard feature island-style keys and 30% more typing space than the competition.
  • At only 7.6mm, or barely more than a quarter of an inch, it's one of the thinnest keyboards available.
  • A powerful battery offers up to three months of use between charges.
  • Backlit keys in interchangeable colors make typing in low light areas a breeze.

I read the review below where the guy said his complaint was that there are no speaker holes.  Zagg responded and strangely just apologized and said they'd look into redesigning it just because one guy overlooked the actual speaker holes? Maybe I have super sharp vision,  but anyone who owns this product (or CREATED IT lol) can examine under the home button when the iPad is placed inside.  There are TWO CHANNELS (tunnels) above and below the home button that redirect the sound from behind to the front.  Look at the right border of the case area and you'll see it.  Just like there's a hole on the left side for the microphone. Even weirder, despite complaints, is I found that this design IMPROVED the sound because the iPad Air's speaker design is not so great.  Especially coming from the iPad 4 where the speakers were powerful and had great fidelity and a surround sound effect.  Sound was directed AT you whereas the iPad Air just leaks sound out from the bottom.  The Zagg design redirects the sound forward so it's much easier to hear and seems much louder. Now for my real issues with this case.  Mine seems to have a defect where the Caps lock button indicator light doesn't come on.  The manual claims there is supposed to be a blue light that comes on,  but I unfortunately never see it.  I thought maybe I had a setting turned off but the manual doesn't say anything about that so I'm guessing the LED is dead on mine?  If Zagg can confirm that would be great. The only other thing is that the case area doesn't seem to fit the iPad snugly on the top portion.  I notice the top left and right corners of the iPad in landscape mode are popping out of the case.  It could be since the material is very thin that mine was warped to where it's wanting to pull back and only the middle "clip" area is holding it in.  I'd imagine the rate that this happens would be high since the plastic is very thin,  and the only area that actually holds the tablet in is the tiny clipped area on the middle of the top portion.  But they did this so it would be easy to remove the iPad I guess. (which it is) When I close the device it feels great in your hands and has a nice feel when it snaps shut.  It feels secure and solid.  The hinge feels solid and keeps the position you set.  I'm hopeful that the hinge won't wear out over time since the iPad Air is SO light there's not much strain on it.  I love the sleep/wake feature and the keyboard comes out of hiberation almost instantly.  No time to wait for it to reconnect if you leave it idle for too long. It's easy to remove the iPad from the case so not sure why people are complaining about this.  Although a tablet mode would of been cool you would STILL have to remove the iPad from the hinge and then flip it around.  So it doesn't make it any easier than just removing the iPad altogether.  If you want that feature you can simply buy the standalone keyboard cover version.  Which I was debating whether to wait for,  but figured not protecting the back of the iPad is a big mistake.  Unless showing off the words "iPad" to strangers is important to you (and more important to theives). The backlit keys in different colors is a very cool feature.  I love changing it every so often to suit my mood.  There's plenty of function keys to do what you need to do and the keys have a nice feel to them.  They aren't too clicky and yet not to mushy either.  They feel solid and every letter you type feels important.  I typed this entire review on the keyboard as a matter of fact!   My only other issue is with iOS and not really keyboards.  Apple seems to not have put real keyboard & mouse support and so the arrow keys never scroll up and down on webpages like other devices do.  I'm wondering if a keyboard maker could actually make this happen or if it's all Apple's fault.  It's quite annoying when every other keyboard in the world that isn't for Apple devices can scroll with arrow keys,  but not the iPad. Anyway, definitely the best iPad Air keyboard case available at the moment.  Despite my critical review...I'm really loving the keyboard.  The other cases out there force you to pull the iPad forward into a slot and don't offer multiple viewing angles.  Plus you get multi-color backlit keys to boot.  So if you need a keyboard case THIS IS THE ONE TO GET at this very moment even after the recently announced ones.

I've been using the Zagg Keyboard Folio for my IPad 2 and I absolutely love. So when I switched to the IPad Air, I decided to give this keyboard folio a try. It's definitely lighter and the bluetooth compatibility works great. But there are some glitches that Zagg might want to consider improving. First is the case cover, unlike the Folio for the IPad 2, this one doesn't have the curved edge slots to hold the Ipad securely inside the cover. The only thing that is stopping the Ipad Air from falling out is the top of the cover where the device snaps in...and that is still not secure enough, and the hinge at the bottom. In addition, the device doesn't sit snugly inside the cover, especially where the volume and power switch buttons are located. You can actually move the device back and forth inside the cover. 2nd glitch. There should be a gap between the hinge and the device. I had the Zagg screen protector placed on my device because I like to protect my screen. It is a good thing, I spent that money for the protector, because when I opened my folio today, there was a big bubble on my protector, exactly where the device comes into contact with the hinge. I'm afraid to think what would have happened to the glass on my device, if I didn't have the screen protector on my device. Now I have a ruined Zagg protector...or at least where the big bubble is, but for now the glass screen is still intact. If Zagg makes the necessary improvements, are we eligible to replace our current one with that one?

Great keyboard; question long-term durability

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about ZAGG Keyboard Case Cover for iPad Air:

I've had my Zaggkeys Folio keyboard for 1.5 years and it has been a tremendous help when in meetings, taking notes, accessing my work computer remotely, etc. The feel of the keyboard is great and allows me to type in a speedy manner. I experience no repeated keystrokes, no pairing issues every time I use it. Now about the hinge. I'm outside of my warranty, and the plastic case area around the hinges has begun separating. I've babied this thing as much as possible, but I guess the tabs and/or adhesive holding the case together at the hinges has finally worn out. I've given it a good workout, but I'm disappointed to see the issue occur. I don't know how much longer I'll get out of this item, but it's been a good one (I'm typing this review on one now). If I have to purchase another case, it will be the more rugged edition. I don't want the same hinge issue to happen again by purchasing another model such as this.

Hinge is Poorly Designed

By 

from Lincoln, NE, United States

Comments about ZAGG Keyboard Case Cover for iPad Air:

I had a Zagg keyboard for my old iPad that had the easel design and it lasted as long as I had the iPad. When I got my iPad Air I thought the new design was great, but I was wrong. The hinge is not made well at all. After only 7 months of gentle use it is broken. It got tighter and tighter to open the case, until the hinge locked up completely and then the only way to get my iPad out was to force it which broke it completely.

Love the product - hate the quality

By 

from Daytona Beach, FL, United States

Comments about ZAGG Keyboard Case Cover for iPad Air:

My ZAGG folio is less than 6 months old. About 6 weeks ago, the apostrophe/quotations key just stopped working. just after that the hinge began disintegrating. First the center hinge cover (plastic) came unglued and popped off, then the cheap metal underneath started to twist and bend. 1 screw has already popped out and the hinge will completely dismantle itself in the next few days. I love my ZAGG products usually, but there is a reason you see this one on store clearance shelves in open boxes after returns. It's just not up to the ZAGG standard.

Worked great, for about 6 months...

By 

from Brainerd, MN, United States

Comments about ZAGG Keyboard Case Cover for iPad Air:

We purchased 2 of these to go on our new business iPad Airs less than a year ago so we'd be able to type patient notes while in treatment rooms. After approximately 3 months the keyboard started to swell near the hinge on one of them. A couple months later the keyboard quit working all together on that same one and wouldn't hold a charge. Worst part was, the keyboard was probably used a dozen times tops. I continued to use it just as a protective case but then the hinge failed 3 days ago and snapped off. Before I had time to replace it, the case slipped apart this morning on my way to work and my iPad hit the floor cracking the screen…pretty disappointed to say the least.

Weak Hinge

By 

from Fort Collins, CO, United States

Comments about ZAGG Keyboard Case Cover for iPad Air:

I loved this folio for the past year. The backlit keys are great. It connects well. The battery life is awesome. The sleek design is super nice to keep my I-pad slim like it's meant to be while protecting it. The problem is that the hinge, though providing a wide range of angles, is weak where the case is connected to the hinge. It started breaking a year and a half after purchase and completely broke off.

Don't buy.

By

Comments about ZAGG Keyboard Case Cover for iPad Air:

I have had 3 Zagg Portfolios within a 1 year period. 1st 2 had terrible connection issues. My 3rd one just wouldn't charge anymore after only having it 3 months. Terribly unreliable product!

Self Destructs!

By 

from San Jose, CA, United States

Comments about ZAGG Keyboard Case Cover for iPad Air:

I've had my Zagg for a little over a year. In less than six months, the the screws in the hinge backed out and it fell apart. I replaced the screws and threw away the trim that covers the hinge because it was broken. Now the hinge has liberated itself from it's mount inside the case. Screws fell out on the floor. The folio is useless...

Fabulous functinal keyboard!

By 

from Southern California

Comments about ZAGG Keyboard Case Cover for iPad Air:

I bought several of these 8 months ago to go with iPad Airs for members of my department. We all LOVE this keyboard! It is great for typing up notes and minutes in meetings and the backlight feature really helps in rooms with dimmed ligghting for presentations. I've only charged my keyboad twice---though I've never had the battery indicator flash anything but green when I checked it. It is a truly wonderful item that is easy to use and easy to remove as needed. I'm about to purchase an iPad mini for home use and will definitely be purchasing the mini version of this keyboad for it. I consider it an iPad essential.

Great keyboard case...when it's working.

By 

from Atlanta, GA, United States

Comments about ZAGG Keyboard Case Cover for iPad Air:

This case is great when it's working. I bought two, one for me and one for my wife and I've had to send both back for replacement. Zagg is great for replacing the item but they require to pay shipping which is $10 each time. On both cases the hinge broke after normal usage. This is clearly a problem so not sure why I have to pay return shipping for a known defect. Also, for whatever reason the Bluetooth loses connectivity about once a week and it's a pain to get it back connected. You have to reboot the iPad and reconnect several times before it's reconnected. With all that said, when it's working it's a great case and very functional keyboard.
