This model is a wrap-around clamshell design with a solid feeling hinge that completely protects the ipad mini. It has an island style keypad which mimics the Apple Mac format. Amazingly it has an adjustable backlight for the keys. More amazingly the backlight colours can also be changed, there are seven colours to choose from. The keys themselves have a solid feel with good travel effectively creating a small netbook style ipad mini.
From opening the box it is a simple matter to clip in an ipad mini following the instructions supplied (which my wife read after I'd installed her ipad to see what I should have done). The Zagg Folio has a rechargeable battery which is topped up via a micro usb socket using the cable supplied (no power supply is included). It is paired with the ipad mini by bluetooth.
If there is a downside (and there isn't) it is the combined weight of the Folio and ipad mini which totals 622g, so it is not exactly light.
I should add that the amazon photo of this unit at the time of this review shows a small stand jutting out from the back of the screen and also a reasonable space from the first row of keys to the screen. I can say that our unit looks nothing like this - no stand is suppled as there is a robust hinge that allows variable viewing angles without additional support. Also the top row of keys is much nearer the base of the screen.
I can wholeheartedly recommend the ZAGGkeys Folio for anyone who wants a keyboard and hinged clamshell case.
It is not compatible with the latest ipad mini retina but is designed for the ipad mini model launched in November 2012.
I have a feeling that the need to have the iPad's Bluetooth turned on constantly may mean its battery runs down more quickly. But not crazily so.
The case itself adds a lot of weight (certainly compared to the Apple smart cover I used before) but on the upside it feels almost 'bulletproof' and unlike the smart cover it protects the iPad's back as well as the touchscreen.

It's okay, though the illuminated keyboard makes the battery life VERY limited. With keyboard illumination off, battery lasts reasonably well. Cover scuffs and scratches easily.Published 21 months ago by PrincessBride
I really like this keyboard but I dislike that there is no esc key. It looks really nice and the battery lasts for really long.Published on 25 Jan. 2014 by Haffi
