The ZAGGkeys FLEX was announced in November and we have received a review unit to check out. Let’s see what this new lightweight Bluetooth keyboard and stand is all about.
There isn’t much to the packaging to the ZAGGkeys FLEX. Other than the external package itself there’s nothing else. Included in the box are some simple instructions and a USB to microUSB cable to charge the ZAGGkeys FLEX keyboard. Speaking of the keyboard, it is identical to the one we previously checked out in the ZAGGfolio. It’s made of aluminum, very thin, extremely light and has all the shortcuts you need to control your iPad.
What I immediately loved about the ZAGGkeys FLEX was how thing and compact the setup was when the case/stand is folded up around the keyboard. It’s probably one of the slimmest keyboard/stand combos around. As for the stand, the outside feels like the material used in Apple’s first generation iPad case, that faux suede/velvet feel. Inside, a softer lining helps protect the keyboard. I did notice the soft lining did attract lint and dust easily, although it’s not hard to clean.
Flipping out the stand to rest your iPad is dead easy. The case protrudes out and the area to rest your iPad is quite small, but it works as advertised. The Bluetooth connectivity means this keyboard is not just for the iPad, but will work with your iPhone and iPod touch too.
As for battery life, the unit claims a couple months of use before requiring a re-charge. In our tests, we were able to use it solidly for a few weeks with no issues at all. We have yet to do a battery stress test but as for now, it appears to hold its charge pretty well.
Here is our quick hands on review of the ZAGGkeys FLEX to give you a better idea of how it works:
The ZAGGkeys FLEX retails for $79.99. It’s worth considering if you’re in the market for a lightweight Bluetooth keyboard and stand for your iPad.
