Additionally, it can be paired with up to four devices and switch between them with the press of a button.

Each key is backlit and adjustable in 10% increments; however, unlike most backlit keyboards, this one features a dedicated battery for backlighting. Should that battery run out, this keyboard can still operate via its main battery.

Brightness Control

Adjust the backlight in 10% increments by holding down the -/+ backlight key. You can also select a brightness level directly using the same shortcut key and pressing a number instead. e.g. 1 = 10%, 2 = 20%, etc.

Rechargeable 1-Year Battery Life for Bluetooth

This keyboard is built with a 1600mAh battery for up to one whole year of use on a single charge.

Second Dedicated Battery

For those who use backlighting frequently, Matias has installed a second 1400mAh battery just for that. If the backlighting battery runs out, the keyboard will still continue working off its own separate battery. This second battery is rated to last between one to two weeks between charges with normal use.

Pair up to Four Bluetooth Devices

This keyboard is compatible with a variety of platforms including Mac, iOS, Windows, and Android. Moreover, it can be paired with up to four devices and switch between them with the press of a button.

Mac Function Keys

With its built-in function keys, you'll have quick access for adjusting screen brightness, volume, accessing iTunes, and much more. You can also use the Fn key to revert the function keys back to their standard uses as needed.

Disappointing

By Fredric
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2021-12-04

First clue? This stupid key that constantly pops up. Missed keys. It's almost unusable. Have to disconnect and reconnect at least once daily. Oh, just realized that character comes when I press the SHIFT key. Lovely. Becomes disconnected randomly. Have to reconnect regularly. Will be returning.

Perfect keyboard for editing

My edit suite is typically a pretty low-light environment - this keyboard works perfectly for the low light levels. Easy and quick setup and the battery seems to last forever.

Great enough

I just received the keyboard, so this might be my first impressions and could be altered in time. -The build quality seems good. Some keys feel a bit uneven in terms of height, and that's the only reason I'm giving it 4 stars. It's a lot like the previous Apple Magic Keyboard in terms of angle (which I find more ergonomic than the new version), feel, and key height/tracking. -The backlight is great! Honestly this was the main reason I bought this keyboard. It doesn't seem too bright, but it's pretty much the same brightness level as the one in any MacBook Keyboard. It does make a huge difference when working in the dark (I'm a re-recording mixer, so some darkness is much needed). -Multiple Connectivity works great! It's really easy to swap between devices, and it's super easy to set them up as well (at least in Mac OS/iOS environment). -Charging time seems extremely long, but it shouldn't be an issue given that it should last a whole year in one charge. It did take some time to get the charging indicator on (around 10 minutes). -Charging cable quality doesn't seem that good, and charging port quality also seems a bit sketchy, so I'll try to be extra careful when charging the keyboard. Overall I think it's a great purchase as far as my first impressions. I'll try to give an update in some time.

Was great until it died

I actually loved this keyboard, I like the tactile feel. The backlight is unreliable, but that's OK. After owning this for just over a year, though, it died completely. I literally see sparks when I use it now and then, and it loses connection to the computer. Sometimes it repeats a keystroke over and over. Yikes. It's really too bad, it's a great product IMHO with a lot of flaws.

I'll sell you  mine  for a  deal!

The keys feel cheap and are spaced too far apart, but once I got used to that,, I also noticed that the backlight doesn't work well,, often goes dim a the battery dies. The battery life is much shorter than the specs,, and it randomly disconnects and reconnects frequently. But the worst part is that it has developed glithes where it either misses keystrokes or thinks you held the option key, or repeats keys, especially when you are using the command key or any two key combinations. so expect to frequently close 2 windows instead of one, or type 4 letters whe you thought you typed one. I left the spelling mistakes in this reviw because it is th er esult of how this keyboard operates. really ebad.

Keep the packaging, you'll need it.

Disappointing. I tossed the packaging, but wish I hadn't so I could return it. Keys don't consistently register your input, and they keys and the keyboard itself is clunky. The keyboard is also unnecessarily larger when compared to Apple's, due to the key layout and spacing between keys. The gaps between the main keys to the 4 arrow keys is too wide, and the same with the gap from the arrow keys to the number keypad. Needs refinement all the way around.

PERFECT
