Summary: This is a brilliant bit of kit that feels very well made, works as it should and is easy to type on. The solar charging works. Bluetooth takes a second or two to connect out of standby - so you can lose a word or two if you aren't watching the screen. No other faults at all. The material is more robust than it looks and has stood up to regular travel in a briefcase and bike pannier.
Summary: I've had mine for a month or so - it works fine, it is a bit plasticy but I like the keyboard. I has one huge design flaw - the solar panels are on the bottom of the case, so when you are using the ipad it can't charge. You have to shut the case up and then flip it over to charge. You can't charge it another way. This also means if the keyboard has run out of battery you can't use it - you have to take the ipad out, leave it somewhere to charge up and use the screen.
Summary: I spent a good deal of time looking into keyboard options for my iPad2. In buying this, I was not disappointed. The total weight of the keyboard case and iPad 2 is barely over 1 kg which is still very portable. The fact that this charges using any kind of light is a real bonus. The keys are responsive, and the spacing is excellent for a keyboard of its size.
Summary: The only disapoointment is that the solar panel remains hidden when the Ipad is operated meaning that it does not receive a charge when use. Also it would be nice if there was a socket to allow a external electrical supply to charge the case,maybe from the Ipad itself.
