One month and I still have not charged the keyboard since its initial charge when I first purchased it
Lightweight, compact and comfortable. Despite the plastic finish, the keyboard is well built and is equipped with rubber pads on the bottom of the keyboard, which allow for it to have a slightly raised profile when on a table. Upon typing the keys are designed to withstand some pressure, but upon too much, the plastic dips/flexes, but on a regular day to day basis it is hardly noticeable. The keys present pleasant travel and are not too mushy when pressed, providing an audible and satisfying click. My only wish is that if it were backlit, as it would increase the usability of the keyboard.
Bluetooth works like a dream on PC but upon pairing with an iPad I ran into a few nibbles here and there. There is a slight lag when using google docs and the keyboard, where you find yourself waiting one second to see if your press has been registered, whilst it is not frustrating it can be a bit of a pain. This issue only occurred a few times after the keyboard went to sleep due to inactivity and perhaps the lag is the keyboard “waking up”. Whilst the Bluetooth method drains the battery, it is not done at a considerable rate, rather at an understandable rate.
The battery life
Great. Used it on a daily basis pretty much, and have not had to charge it. The sleep feature is also handy if you are not using it for a short period of time as it conserves battery life.
At the current price it is a bargain for a compact keyboard. The battery life alone makes it a great keyboard for on the go. Bluetooth is the only concern for those who will want to conserve battery life, and if you are using an iPad, a smart connector is the other option, but also at a price increase. Overall I am pleased with the keyboard and for the price of £17, it is certainly one of the best. The only major let-down is the lack of backlit keys, but for the price point it is reasonable.
