  • Good blue tooth keyboard
  • This is a good keyboard to use for an iPad or tablet. It is a little smaller than a regular keyboard and really light. It was easy to get used to.

  • Rough at first, but does it get better?
  • So my puchase was to serve as an input device for my Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 and it seems to have done what it says, although not as smooth as I'd hoped.Before we get into discussion of fuctionality I want to talk about the presentation and product aesthetic. It was perfect. Its very simple box saying no more than it had to say about its product, containing two instruction packets which were neatly packed and very straight forward making them a breeze to read and get started.The feel of the device was comparable to the chiclet style apple keyboard, but a less luxorious version as this, though looks metallic or aluminum, is actually just plastic which is fine! Keys are simple and clearly represent what they do and if you're familiar with function keys and other similarly sized keyboards, this will be feel at home.The keyboard functioned very well at first... first few seconds actually. The pairing went well, but after the initial pairing it was a little more rough. The keyboard and tablet kept disconnecting and reconnecting. The batteries were fresh and both devices had a near full charge. This problem was also complimented by sporadic letters being typed, more so it would hold down the last key you pressed making more work in the long run.Two days later, however it has been much more pleasant to use. The connection to the tablet has been solid for more than a few minutes, no weird blips or glitches. Maybe a few extra letters here and there, but for the most part it seems to be functioning properly. Much happier with the purchase now compared to two days ago.Last thing I'd talk about is the typing experience. Just like the aesthetic, it feels like a less luxurious version of apples chiclet keyboard. Nothing special, but something appreciated. We'll see how it holds up over time.So all-in-all, this product did what I wanted it to. For a low price tag of 13.99, I'd have to say 4/5 stars simply because of the "bang for your buck" and this definitely met my expectations, even if we did have a rough start.

  • This keyboard isn't the greatest that I've used
  • This keyboard isn't the greatest that I've used, but it is a solid choice considering the cost. It has a small form factor and removable batteries which were two of my must-haves when choosing a Bluetooth keyboard to use with my surface pro 3. It is very lightweight and that is both good and bad. It is good that it is easy to carry around and use, but bad that it doesn't feel particularly substantial. Despite the somewhat cheap feel to it, it seems sturdy enough and I haven't had any issues in that area. I was having problems with it disconnecting from my tablet each time it went to sleep at first, but I think that a Windows update resolved this. Now, the only issue that I have is that there is a couple of second delay when initially using it (hit a key and then it takes a couple of seconds for it to wake up so that you can really start using it). All in all, a pretty solid device for this price point.

  • Works awesome! Have used it to type on my tablet when my laptop wasn't available. Have also used it to hook my laptop up via HDMI to my TV and us this as well as a Bluetooth mouse to browse, watch Netflix, or open movies I have on my computer.

Customer FAQ

Q1.  The wrong characters are coming out when I type. Why is this?
Please make sure that no water or other liquid has gotten inside of the keyboard, and that it has not been subjected to any rough physical treatment, as doing so may cause internal components to be misplaced.
Q2.  My Bluetooth keyboard is experiencing limited coverage. Why is this?
Please make sure that there is no interference from other devices, then try pairing again.
Q3.  Why isn’t my Bluetooth keyboard working?
The Bluetooth keyboard will not work without a Bluetooth HID profile or driver installed. Please make sure that your device is properly equipped.
Q4.  My Bluetooth keyboard keeps disconnecting from my device. Why is this?
Please check that the keyboard still has sufficient power, and that it is not experiencing any interference from other devices, then try pairing again.
Q5.  Why isn’t my Bluetooth keyboard working with my Android-equipped device?
The Bluetooth keyboard is only compatible with Android 3.0 and above. Please upgrade your system if needed.
Q6.  Can I use my Apple keyboard and regular keyboard interchangeably?
Both keyboards may be used, given the keyboard is compatible with your operating system. There are some minor differences with regard to control keys, however, such as the Command key on the Apple keyboard and the Windows key on the regular keyboard. For example, when using a regular keyboard with a Mac, the Command key function will no longer have any use.
Q7.  Why is the Anker keyboard so expensive?
We incorporate top-quality chips and other raw materials into our products to ensure maximum performance. We have strict manufacturing standards and require quality inspection of all of our finished products. All defective goods are sent back for reprocessing, as we believe that higher costs during the manufacturing process result in a better customer experience. Moreover, we have one of the world’s most professional customer service teams standing behind each of our products.
Q8.  How do I know the keyboard is low on power?
The LED on the keyboard will blink red.
Q9.  How do I Print Screen on this keyboard?
For Mac: Command+Shift+3. For Windows: No shortcut available.
Q10.  What might be the cause of my keyboard missing the first keystroke?
This issue may occur when the keyboard is waking from sleep mode. The Bluetooth connection will take 1 or 2 seconds to reconnect and if you type during this time then the keystroke may not be registered. It's advised to hit a key to wake the keyboard first and then begin typing.
Q11.  How long will is take (idle time) for my keyboard to enter sleep mode and how long should it take to wake?
Idle time depends on the batteries' remaining voltage. The lower the voltage the quicker the keyboard will enter sleep mode. On average, idle time is around 10 minutes before the keyboard enters sleep mode. When in sleep mode the keyboard will take at most 2 seconds to reconnect after a key is struck.
Q12.  Do I need drivers for my keyboard to work?
You do not need any keyboard drivers for this keyboard to work. All you need is a Bluetooth connection on the host device.
Q13.  Why is my keyboard disconnecting when in sleep mode and how should I connect it back?
When in sleep mode the keyboard will not be shown as paired with the host device. Hitting any key will reinitialize the previous connection.
Q14.  Is there a shortcut list for Android available?
For an Android shortcut list, please reference by searching "Android Keyboard Shortcuts: All The Hotkeys You Need" on PCWorld website.
Q15.  Why can't I get the keyboard to pair with my device?
a. Turn off both devices (host device and also the Anker keyboard).
b. Turn on Anker keyboard and push the connect button for 3 seconds until you see a flashing blue light.
c. Turn on the host device and turn on Bluetooth.
d. In the Bluetooth devices menu, select Anker keyboard, this will cause the host device to show a 'Pairing Code'. Enter the code using the Anker keyboard then hit return/enter and the keyboard will be paired with your device.

Scroll your mouse UP on this page to where you see Product Description in big letters. It is followed by Customer Reviews then Customer FAQ and the last thing to the right is a clickable link for Instruction Manuals & Drivers.  Check to see if what you need is in the instruction manual. Remember that with any keyboard not every function is universally supported.

question on keyboard sleep

 

I am enjoying the keyboard, but it seems to sleep sooner than 10 minutes. When I dont type for a short while, about 2 minutes, the bluetooth disconnects and the ipad on-screen keyboard pops up. As soon as I start typing it does reconnect very fast and the ipad keyboard slides away. Is there a setting to make so that the ipad on screen keyboard does not appear so fast?

Thanks

Carl Rockrohr

Pairing issue

 

it paired well with my iPad Air until I mistakenly set iPad to ignore this keyboard as opposed to my old one.  How do I reset iPad to "see" it?   When I switch keyboard off and on, iPad seems to see something but does not recognize it.  Thanks.
