Good feel, but like other MS keyboards, battery connection fails

Summary: I love the size and feel of the keyboard, and the fact that there is space for the mouse given the absence of a dedicated number pad. The curve is perfect and small footprint is great on a small workspace. After using it for a month and replacing batteries twice, it now thinks the batteries are dead even when fresh. I've tried to tighten the connecter between the two batteries to no avail.
Summary: I'd been looking for an ergonomic keyboard to use with my Mac and I would have used this keyboard but the problem is that it disconnects constantly from my computer. I'd never ever had an issue like this with my Apple bluetooth keyboard -- it doesn't disconnect like this keyboard does. I think it's trying to save as much battery life as possible by going into power savings mode (sleep) very quickly, which I did not like.
Summary: I loved the tablet concept but I could NOT type on that silly keyboard. This ergonomic keyboard answers all the issues I had. I put it on my lap if I'm sitting at the kitchen table. I put it on my lap if I'm lounging on the sofa. I take it outdoors with me to the lanai if the weather entices me (here in FL while you guys up North are shoveling). It's just wonderful. No issues, has worked perfectly once my daughter explained how BT works. Would definitely recommend it.
Summary: Let me put it in a simple format of pros and cons for fast reading. But first let me give you a quick rundown of my application. I bought it to use with my ipad mini 32gb, I bought it so I can do my MASc. Thesis on it. Ive had it for about a month or so and have used it only sparingly so far. So lets get into the pros and cons. Pros: Very ergonomic. The shape of it combined with the size of the keys makes it really easy and comfortable to use.
Summary: Use this with a Surface Pro tablet when travelling. The keyboard has good tactile feedback, the keys are deliberately not all in straight lines but splayed in an ergonomic layout which makes it easier on wrists. It is thin so it does not take up a lot of room in briefcase. Got it for $15 on sale at local electronics store. Compared with $79.95 for the newer Microsoft replacement mobile keyboard this is an absolute bargain.
Summary: Pros: Very useful. I have a laptop that has a horrible keyboard/touchpad combo and I place this keyboard over the touchpad and use an external mouse. Much more comfy. Ergo Design feels nice on the fingers/hands. Also it's a quiet keyboard. Portable - We carry enough things around. This is slim and portable. I don't notice the extra bulk or weight. Cons: Connectivity is spotty. It would lose connection then I would have a heck of a time trying to get it to connect again.
Summary: the quality is impressive. the keys work effortlessly. the curved alignment is perfect. this is an outstanding compliment to the surface pro. (30 day experience at this point) it is also very portable, though the surface keyboard is good enough for that. but I do move it back and forth from standup desk to sit down desk, both home and office.
My first one got broken by TSA folks going through baggage, and I had to have another.

Summary: My first one got broken by TSA folks going through baggage, and I had to have another. Ergo curve design and compactness plus good feel to the key touch is a great companion to my ASUS G74S 17" laptop. Also got the ASUS BX700 bluetooth mouse.
