This black QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard Case from Belkin provides an iPad Air with a physical Bluetooth keyboard suitable for comfortable, long-duration typing. Tablet users accustomed to working on a laptop, as well as those who do not wish to have any part of their iPad's screen taken up by a virtual keyboard can also appreciate this keyboard case's well-spaced and responsive keys. Fast and accurate typing is also promoted by the keyboard design. MacBook and notebook PC users can feel particularly at home with this keyboard case as it contains the same number of keys as a laptop and features three brightness levels which can be set according to various low-light conditions.

Built-in magnets secure your tablet into one of two selectable viewing angles so that your iPad's screen is well positioned relative to where you are working while on the go. Both landscape and portrait modes are supported by the keyboard's magnetic hinge that allows for instant repositioning of your tablet's orientation. When you wish to interact directly with your iPad's screen or handhold your tablet, the integrated standalone case that holds the iPad against the keyboard's magnetic hinge can be instantly detached along with a tablet inside. The standalone case is compatible with Apple iPad Smart Covers, so an iPad Air can always be afforded dual-sided protection particularly when being handheld. Whether handheld or connected to the keyboard, the standalone case directs sounds generated by the iPad toward the front of the screen so that audio from the tablet's speakers is improved. When you wish to resume using your iPad on the keyboard, the magnetic elements in the standalone case and the keyboard allow it to be reattached just as quickly.

Up to two Bluetooth 4.0 devices can be paired to this keyboard case at the same time, with one-button control provided to select between them. This is particularly useful when typing a document on a tablet and collaborating with a colleague through text messaging. If you cannot or do not wish to hide your document in order to switch to a messaging app on your tablet, but want to continue typing on the physical keyboard and your smartphone is paired as well, you can instantly switch keyboard inputs to the smartphone, create and send a text, then switch back to the tablet.

When you are not using your iPad, the keyboard case can be closed over the standalone case. Rubber feet along the case prevent the keyboard from touching the iPad's screen. Anodized, aircraft-grade aluminum alloy is used for durable screen protection. The thin profile of your iPad Air 2 is preserved along with access to all tablet buttons, ports, and cameras.

The QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard Case for iPad Air includes automatic on and off switching by sensing the weight of a tablet that is attached to it. Folding the fabric and magnetic flaps all the way to the rear of the keyboard, also signals the keyboard to turn on. This feature allows for Bluetooth pairing even when a tablet is not resting on the keyboard. These automatic and manual power management features contribute to the keyboard case's battery being able to last for up to one year before it needs to be recharged. The battery is built-in and is not user-replaceable.

    Belkin F5L171TTBLK reviews

    QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard Case for iPad Air (Black) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rubber strip comes off the base of the keyboard Overall this is a good keyboard - I like that it's backlit and pairs well with phone and IPad smoothly and I can switch between the two quickly. The way the magnets hold the screen is definitely not secure, but something that I've got used to. My biggest pain point is actually with the rubber strip on the underside fo the keyboard, which is intended as 'feet'. The adhesive gave way a while ago, so now it half hangs off, looking unsightly and giving an unstable typing expereince. I was just online looking to see if other users had experience this and if so, how they fixed it. If that were more sturdy and the ipad were held more securely, I'd give this five starts. Again, the typing expereince is excellent.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing. The iPad doesn't fit securely in the case. Also the back falls off the bottom support all the time. Any time I move it, the back piece case comes apart from the base and then my iPad pops out of the case. I had an earlier version for 5 years that I loved. It finally broke after 5 years of constant use so I was excited to get a new one but this isn't it. The old version also allowed you to put the screen in multiple places where's this one only has 2 placements, both of which are fairly upright. The little support bar on the old version also allowed you to fold it which allowed you to lower the iPad to almost flat but with a little lift. This one has a stiff board that doesn't have that extra feature. Returning this immediately.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best keyboard for an iPad, bar none! I consider this the best keyboard, bar none, for an iPad. What no one says, is that this fits the iPad Air AND the iPad 2017 flawlessly. It has several things that few if any combine--magnetically detachable keyboard, backlit keys, and compatibility with a light magnetic cover as well. The keyboad touch is great, and the ability to take it off for reading--rather than fold it back--is exceptional. The money spent makes your iPad twice as valuable. Unfortunately, these are pricey, even when compared to the one for the iPad Air 2 (which fits the smaller iPad Pro wonderfully!).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Make sure you hold on to you iPad really good I bought this case because it had all the features I wanted. Backlit keyboard that could be removed from the case, hard shell protection for my iPad. However, this case is held together by magnets which appear to be strong, but if you press the touch screen to hard the iPad comes off the magnets. Also, the keyboard powers up by the magnets and doesn't always work. The keyboard goes to sleep too quickly. Frustrating at best...

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from GOOD...BUT Good case overall, sturdy, slim, sleek look, keyboard is comfortable to type on. However, bluetooth control is same as backspace so I have found if you tap it too much, bluetooth comes off and keyboard is disabled. When bluettoth came off just now, i thought battery died and went to get my old Kensington keyboard which I am using right now to type this, thinking I'm going to have to walk around with two keyboards! Also the bottom part, the keyboard back is a nice looking, what I would describe as brush metal, and that's the part that will drag on surfaces, and get scuffed. I thought it would have been the other way around the screen part would have fit into that part of the case. This is a good time to note this is a two part case and the screen is attached to the board by a magnet. There could have been more set up options, there are two screen placement angles but there could have been more support options. In addition, I have found if you separate the board from screen case when off, it is sometimes a bit (just a bit) tricky to get it close and fit together. Also because I have found battery life could be better. It lasts on average three days at about 6-8 hours typing eac day. Biggest advantage to me is the back support, haven't had any annoying falling iPad falling backwards events.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Definitely Don't Regret this Purchase! This case has allowed me to be more productive everywhere I go, and so I don't have to lug my laptop with me everywhere - which is a big plus for me because that thing was heavy! I was fearful of the keyboard being too cramped for me, but as soon as I used it for the first time it was like using my laptop. And the keyboard lighting is really helpful whenever I have late night projects to finish! I love this thing!
