  • I am writing this review on my iPad mini using this keyboard. I love it. I am a service tech and have to document alot of part numbers and part discriptions. This has made me much faster. When I got it keyboard I took it out of the box. Put in two fresh batts, turned it on, and pressed the connect button. I then went to the ipad and found it listed under the bluetooth section. I typed the number the ipad displayed and it worked. And it works well. My colleague purchased the actual apple keyboard. Said you can tell a difference in build. You trully can but he admits they both look the role. This one still has a quality build even if it is all plastic. For the price you can't beat it.

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.

Returning it is always an option. However you bought it for a reason and if it has the features you want and you otherwise like it, why not take advantage of the customer support that everyone here speaks so highly of? Maybe it's something really simple and Anker can help you keep a keyboard you really want. I own one of these and Ithink it is the best in the price range and I like it a lot better than the one with the Apple name on it. You can reach Anker at support@ianker.com

Connection error bw keyboard to tablet.

As discribed in the title. Keyboard is K1280 and the tablet is Galaxy Tap III Lite

My tablet can detect the keyboard, but they cannot be hooked. When I try it following the instruction, following error message pops:

To pair with:

Anker Bluetooth Keyoard

Type on it:

xxxxxx, then press Return or Enter

 

'xxxxxx' is 6 digits number, which changes in every try. 

Please give me any idea, or I have to return it.

 

Thanks,

Young

Keys and Functions of the keyboard

I have the Anker keyboard model KI 280 . I want to know if there is a diagram that displays the  functions of each key ?

There are many keys with shift-letter, F type keys , etc, that I do not know what they do?

Is there a key or keys that print the screen?

Sincerely,

BruceH

Hi,

To print the screen you have to use Command+Shift+3 (using Mac).

On the other hand, there is no shortcut available for Windows.

The functions of each key should be in the manual. If not, please feel free to contact Anker support (support@ianker.com), they will answer all your questions perfectly.

If the information that you need isn't in the manual then give our customer service guys a shout at support@ianker.com.

There isn't a direct print screen button but there are ways around it depending on what OS you're running.

Anker Bluetooth Keyboard pairing problem

Right out of the box, I began the pairing process with my ipad mini 2. After I input the 4 digits and pressed enter, it failed to successfully pair. Anybody have this problem?

Do you possibly have another device you can pair it with? This would help confirm if the problem is on the keyboard end or the iPad end.

I'm having the same problem, now wondering if the seller sold or sent the wrong item. 

The Anker box states "Keyboard Case for iPad mini" - does this work for all mini's or was it just the good wishes of the seller?

I have a mini 3. 

Dunno, gonna find out.

Windows 7 Connection problem

I am not able to make the keyboard discoverable despite every effort.

I am using a PC with 3.8 AMD quad core cpu with 8 GB ram running windows 7 64 bit with a Broadcom BCM 20702 Bluetooth 4.0 USB Device.

Any advise please.

Bluetooth 2.0 adapter?

I've recently ordered one of these &  was quite surprised it didn't come with a Bluetooth adapter for my laptop. 

I now need to buy one, was just wondering if a Bluetooth 2.0 adapter would work.  Thanks

Yes, that adapter should work just fine!

Sorry you were expecting to receive an adapter but didn't, this is really more of a tablet keyboard. All of which have Bluetooth inbuilt.

Question about Send function

Hello! I bought this keyboard for my wife through amazon.com. She has an iPad Air 2 and is starting to use it for her daily use. One issue she is having is that when she writes in Message, she cannot send unless she touches the "Send" bottom on the screen/display. Is there a way to send a text message with keybord?

Replies(1) Collapse Report as spam Jan 2, 2015 at 6:37 PM
ANKER Team
This is due to the iPad's compatibility with Bluetooth keyboards. For some apps on the iPad you'll need to press the 'Send' button rather than any button on the keyboard and there isn't really a work around for this.

The return/enter key may work with other messenger apps though.
