    This is an ultra slim Bluetooth keyboard that is frivolous and offers a lot of features. The back side of the keyboard is made of aluminum and it looks like the back of an iPad. The keyboard’s front has a rubberized coating that looks nice, resists fingerprints and has padded areas so the keys don’t touch your iPad screen. The unit features a rechargeable Lithium battery rated at 280 mAh and it is expected to last 3 years. It can operate the keyboard uninterrupted for 100 hours and it only takes 4 to 5 hours to fully charge. You can also use the keyboard while it is charging.

    The keyboard is only 4 mm thick and it has a magnetic latch on a hinge to attach to the iPad and it also has built in magnets that place your iPad into sleep mode when it is closed or opened. It is a nice keyboard with a specialty row of keys that allow you to quickly go to the home screen, adjust volume, control your videos or music, lock the iPad and even more.

    If you stop typing for 15 minutes the keyboard will go into sleep mode and it will awaken and repair to the iPad in 2 seconds when you touch any key. Remember this as if you just start typing you may lose numerous font that you have typed as the two devices have not properly repaired yet.

    The keyboard comes with a charging cable that is 2 feet long that is a standard USB plug on one end and a Micro USB connector on the other. You can charge the keyboard with the USB port on your computer or any USB AC wall mount that you own. It also comes with four stick on rubber feet for the back of the keyboard and a user instruction blue-collar.

    There is a pop up tab that allows you to lean your iPad against it and have it stand up in the portrait or the landscape mode. There is an on button and a LED that indicates red if the keyboard is charging. There is also a connect button and a blue LED that indicates that the keyboard is equipped for pairing by flashing. You have to push the connect button to start the pairing process.

    The keyboard weighs in at 10 ¾ ounces and when it is together to an iPad the set weighs 1 pound and 15 ¼ ounces. Bluetooth pairing was quick and simple. When you turn on the connect function just go to your iPad settings and turn on the Bluetooth capability and then touch the pop up message that says the keyboard is not together. A message will pop up and it will tell you to enter on the keyboard a four digit code that is random and then touch enter on the keyboard and you are paired. The connection range of the Bluetooth keyboard is about 33 feet.

    I liked this keyboard and I thought it was attractive and simple to use. I like the magnetic latch to the iPad and the auto sleep off/on magnets built into the keyboard so that when it is closed the iPad sleeps and saves its battery power. I rated this product as a 5 star item.

    I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation and I promised to provide a honest and honest review.

    Anker UltraThin iPad Keyboard, May 28, 2013

    Disclaimer: Review sample was kindly provided by Anker, all opinions contained within this review are my own.

    The keyboard arrived in a small, clean package – quite a difference from those producst which turn up with an insane amount of packing material.

    Contained within the package was the keyboard, a micro USB charging cable, a pack of 4 sticky `feet’ pads and the instructions.

    The keyboard itself is (obviously) the same size as an iPad, but weighs about half as much – when attached via the magnetic clip to an iPad 2, the whole consequence is under 900g, with a depth of 20mm.

    This is a very elegant looking keyboard – the design is sterile and uncomplicated, with the back of the keyboard the same silver as the back of an iPad. The keyboard itself is a chiclet stylishness and is pleasant enough to type on, although the keys are slightly clicky, especially the space bar.
    One thing to note is the symbols on the keyboard are setup for a US English layout, the # sign over the 3 instead of £, but it defaulted to UK English when really typing.

    To support the iPad, there is a small pop-up stand, which is quite sturdy and chains an iPad in either portrait or landscape, depending on your preference. Its worth noting though that it seems a small reluctant to be flattened out, requiring either more pressure than would normally be expected, or the user to hold the release latch open to get the stand to sit flush with the base.

    Connection to the iPad was very simple, and posed no issues. As a test, I also tried involving the keyboard to a Nexus 7 and an HTC One X, again with no issues.

    Typing was remarkably smooth for a such a thin keyboard, and I had no distress prose half a dozen emails, and this review, on it. As such, it would be perfect for in a meeting, or in a lecture, for taking notes, or for working while on a train perhaps.

    I’ve tried a couple of other iPad keyboards, including the Logitech Ultrathin keyboard http://www.amazon.co.uk/Logitech-Ultrathin-Keyboard-Cover-iPad/dp/B00835UQK8/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1369731979&sr=1-1&keywords=logitech+ipad, which is nearly 3 era the price, and I have to say this compares very favourably. In fact, I would struggle to justify paying that much more for the Logitech.

    You get what you pay for, Not excellent for class or work, October 27, 2013

    Verified Buy(What’s this?)
    I originally posted a better rating for this product, but after using it for a couple months, I have be converted into more and more frustrated. To be honest, it’s probably my own fault. There is a reason prices vary so much for these types of keyboards, and you certainly get what you pay for. If you want a keyboard for casual use, this one is fine. I made the mistake of thinking I was a casual user, and quickly learned that this was not the case.

    The Excellent
    1) The case is sturdy and pretty well-constructed.
    2) Involving it to my iPad was super simple.
    3) It has a lot of useful function keys at the top that let you do things like change the volume, change brightness, etc.
    4) It holds the iPad at a excellent angle for viewing, and it is honestly sturdy on a desk or table.

    The Terrible
    1) There is no way to tell how much charge you have left on the keyboard. This earnings that you will lose power at some point without in the family tree way it. If you are a casual user, this won’t matter. You can just come back to what ever you were doing later or go grab the mount. If you want to use this for class or meetings though, that luxury probably doesn’t exist. This happened to me, and it was at a very inconvenient time. To dodge it, you should probably just charge they keyboard whenever you are thinking about it (my guess is that this will kill the battery quicker in the long run though). If you are like me, chances are you will forget to do this at some point as well.
    2) The bluetooth connectivity is not excellent enough if you are a quick typer. I have had numerous lessons in which I needed to type as quickly as possible, and see what I was typing without delay. While the delay on this keyboard isn’t terrible, you will unquestionably see it if you are a quick typer, and it will get more and more annoying as you go on. Some of the keys require multiple or exceptionally hard presses as well (especially the space bar!). Between this and the delay, I would often miss vital points all through class trying to make sure that everything I typed was transcribed correctly on my iPad.
    3) The keys are really really loud. A lot of my lessons are small seminars, and it is blatantly obvious when I start typing. This has a lot to do with the bluetooth functionality too because I am capable of typing more quietly, but when I do, my iPad doesn’t catalog which keys I have hit on the keyboard.

    All in all, the terrible was way too much for me. I have upgraded to a more expensive keyboard (although I got it on sale all through Black Friday so it wasn’t that terrible), and I have not had any of the issues I mentioned above. If you are using this at home for random things, you are probably fine. Unfortunately, I do not fall into that category. I’m not sure how no one else has had these complaints? Maybe most of them are casual users or maybe I got a faulty keyboard. All i can say is, as with a lot of electronics, it’s better to spend more money up front (especially if you require a better product) than to dissipate time and money on the cheaper version before getting the more expensive stuff anyway.
