Excellent productivity addition

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.
Useful Product - lovely keyboard, - a little bulky however

Summary: Great for university work, really get another dimension out of the ipad. However it is a little bulky and fairly heavy too... but definitely worth it for the workload. Much better than typing on the screen. The keyboard layout is excellent, there are a lot of shortcut buttons. It also has 2 different angles of viewing which is very beneficial if you do not need to use the full keyboard at the time. Solar panel is a little flimsy, but is a good addition.
Summary: Only criticism is that the solar panel is on the underside of the key pad, so can't charge while you're using it. But having said that, it's never gone flat on me either. Just have to remember to leave it solar-side up when you're not using the iPad.
Summary: I've now been using this for a week, mainly for notes at uni, and it's been pretty good. The only sort of stupid thing about it is the fact the strip of solar cells is on the bottom which means you cannot charge when in use. I know some people have commented about the weight but I don't mind it, it makes your iPad feel like a netbook or small laptop .
Summary: The only down sides are if the keyboard does run flat you have to leave it to charge from the solar panel. This is akward and annoying. If they had fitted the solar panel to the side of the case always up when in use or added a USB charge socket this would be near perfect. On mine the sides of the case started fraying within a few weeks which is scrappy.
Summary: It looks as though Swiss Logitech currently have three iPad cases with a keyboard integrated into a case. This is the high-end model with cost to match. The keyboard uses pretty much all of the space available while not making the case larger than the iPad itself. It feels very good to type on, better than I've found on any iPad or Android keyboard case. The quality of the keyboard means, of course, that the case is bulkier and heavier than some others.
Crisp Responsive Keyboard, Solar Charging, But Bulky

Summary: 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.
