Product Description

Product Description

Solar Keyboard Folio

The power to write and protection to go—wherever you take your iPad*

The Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio is designed for the protection of an iPad* both from frontal and rear damage due to the protective folio. The built-in Bluetooth keyboard is powered by solar energy and works in differing light environments—indoors and out. Fully powered, the battery is able to enable typing on it for two years, even in complete darkness.**

Features

Ready when you are

The built-in Bluetooth keyboard is powered by light including low light and lamp light, indoors and out. Instant On/Off function acts to automatically wake an iPad* when the folio is opened and to put it onto sleep mode when it is closed.

The right view—for watching or writing

The multiview stand enables the holding of the iPad* in position unaided and provides two viewing options depending on the desired activity. In entertainment mode for example, the media keys allow for the ability to play, pause and change volume instantly.

Write on

The external Bluetooth keyboard acts to free up screen space on the iPad and also allows the use of keyboard shortcuts for the commands that are most often, such as copy, paste, undo and many more.

Works with
  • iPad (4th generation)
  • iPad (3rd generation)
  • iPad 2
  • iPad

* iPad 2 and iPad (3rd generation)

**Based on 2-hour usage per day average.

Swiss company Logitech makes a lot of iPad accessories. Out of the three iPad Keyboard Cases they currently sell, the Solar Keyboard Folio is their top-of-the-range model and consequently the most expensive. It gets its name from the fact that it charges via built-in solar cells, gives you a physical keyboard to type on, and closes like a book.

Taking the Folio out of its magnetically closed packaging, it's certainly an interesting-looking product. The dark grey and red colour scheme gives it a smart, business-like aesthetic, and the black polyurethane used on the exterior is very similar to an iPad Smart Cover. When the Folio is closed, it provides complete protection for your iPad, from any angle. The only problem is that you have to remember to hold it closed, otherwise it'll just swing open leaving your iPad dangling!

Your iPad (either an iPad 2 or iPad 3) attaches to the Folio via the iPad tray; a stretchy rubber frame similar to an Apple iPhone 4 Bumper case. All you have to do is place your iPad in the iPad tray and then stretch it around the edges of your iPad to properly seal it in. From there you can move the iPad tray up into one of two positions: typing position or media position. More on those later.

Pairing your iPad with the Folio is surprisingly simple. All you have to do is tap on Settings on your iPad's Home Screen, tap on General, tap on Bluetooth, and then switch Bluetooth on (if it's currently off). Under "Devices" your iPad will say "Searching..." and then eventually "Logitech Solar KB Folio, Not Paired" will appear. To pair the two, simply tap on "Logitech Solar KB Folio, Not Paired" and it will change to "Connected". That's it!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Being the good son I am, I gave my Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad 2 and iPad 3 to my dad who had just got an ipad. I still had the first keyboard case that I bought, an unbranded £20 keyboard which worked but intermittently.

Because I use my ipad a lot for making notes, I knew I needed to get a decent keyboard and so I got this one.

I kinda wish I had given this one to my dad! But let's start with the positives of this keyboard:

a. It charges via sun or domestic light. Sounds very eco, but the ultrathin keyboard is stated to last 6 months for every 12 hour charge. So you aren't really going to save that much money or that many trees by purchasing this solar keyboard.
b. It was very easy to connect to the ipad. This is always a bonus.
c. It works really well
d. The keys feels nice and responsive and arent too loud, so you don't feel too inconspicuous working on a flight if everyone else is trying to sleep.
e. The keyboard has the same useful shortcuts as the ultrathin one e.g. Fn + 4 highlights the word to the left, Fn+5 does the same for the right.
f. The main feature above the ultrathin keyboard (other than the solar panel) is that it quite protective of the ipad.

But now for the limitations

a. the first thing you will notice is that it is rather heavy. This is because the solar panel charges a battery, which lies in the middle of the cover (you will see the silver bar in the pictures). So it adds quite a large amount of weight to the ipad.
b. Also it isn't easy to pull out once you have put it in.
c.

Quite a smart looking case with a charcoal grey/black exterior and grey interior. There are two positions that the case is active in - typing and media. The keyboard is only active when in the typing or media positions. So if you fold the case over the keyboard is automatically disconnected. So you don't have to worry about switiching it off or turning off bluetooth if you don't want to use the keyboard. When in the media position only the last row of keys are accessible and their function is automatically changed - the space bar becomes play/pause, the left and right cmd keys become skip back and skip forward respectively and the other keys have other media related functions.

The keyboard feels quick and responsive to use. It is comfortable despite its relative small size compared to full size computer keyboards. There are useful shortcut functions on the keyboard i.e. play, next track, volume, copy, paste, search, on screen keyboard toggle, quick select and so on.

The solar panels are obviously very useful for keeping the keyboard charged without having to worry about recarging, only time will tell how well the panels last and how well the battery keeps its charge. I do think the placement of the panels is wrong though. When the keyboard is in use the panels are underneath the keyboard, so no light is going to reach them. It's a real shame that they are not on the back of where the iPad sits so they are always open to the light. I can only assume that there is some practical reason why they are not in that position because the rest of the keyboard is well designed.

This keyboard would be invaluable for those who use trains regularly and want to make use of the journey to type etc.
