I purchased this keyboard case in October 2015, and was initially bowled over by it. Not only did it give my iPad Air a stunning new look, it made it so functional, it completely justified the £44.99 cost. The only annoyance I really found with it is that there is no £ sign on the keys, so would need to turn off keyboard to add this sign from the iPad keyboard... Not a huge issue when it has a whole list of pro's! No way of gauging what battery life it has left either but I've not ever known a case like this to have that ability, even the more expensive ones.
So, my updated review.... I have used the keyboard, but not heavy use, but have charged it when it's ran down, given it full charges so have worked and charged the battery properly. I didn't use my iPad for 3 days last week but both iPad and keyboard battery were full. Switching iPad and keyboard on I was a bit confused why the keyboard had no life in it, it hadn't been left switched on.. Astonished how 3 days of non use would drain the battery. I plugged it in to charge it and the charging light would stay on for about a minute and then dimly flash before going off again.
Trying several different charging leads made no difference. I left it on charge to see if it was still accepting the charge but a couple of hours later, still dead.
So disappointed as the case was an absolute must have, but as for lasting just 5 months? No, am afraid to me, it's not worth the money
