Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio (for iPad)

 

Green is good, but, for the most part, solar powered devices I've tested have proven to be bulky, inefficient, overpriced, or some combination of the three. The Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio ($129.99 direct), fortunately, is an add-on iPad keyboard...

Solar powered. Comfortable typing experience. Multiple stand positions. Attractive design

A bit heavy. No way to charge with an outlet

If you don't mind paying a premium to go green, the Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio for iPad offers an excellent typing experience in a package you'll never have to worry about keeping charged.

Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio for iPad

 

There's genius in Logitech's Solar Keyboard Folio for the iPad: no one wants another gadget to charge. So, why not use the power of the sun to charge it instead? The gadget in this case is a keyboard case, designed to fit around an iPad 2 or...

The Solar Keyboard Folio charges using everyday light, has an excellent keyboard, and can automatically turn on and off and pair when the iPad's in range.

The outer case material feels flimsier then you'd expect for a $130 product, and the case feels too floppy to use for comfortable non-keyboarded iPad use.

Logitech's clever Solar Keyboard Folio hooks iPad users up with a quality typing experience on the go, no USB charger required: it really does work as advertised.

As good as Apple's on-screen keyboard is, writing longer documents and emails on an iPad really requires a proper keyboard. Logitech thinks it has the perfect model with the Solar Keyboard Folio, which combines a solar-powered Bluetooth keyboard with a...

A comfortable keyboard, but inflexible iPad positioning and a high price count against it

Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio for iPad review

 

Apple's own Wireless Keyboard is one option, but you'll have to carry it separately from your iPad, as it isn't designed to attach to the tablet as with Archos' new 101 XS.

On a desk, the Solar Folio is a great keyboard, but it's not comfortable to use on your lap. Unlike Logitech's other keyboard case for the iPad, it does provide all-round protection. Although it's well made, the case has no clips to hold it closed. The...

Having recently reviewed Logitech's excellent Ultrathin iPad keyboard case, I was very keen to also try the new solar-powered option. Rather than make a thicker version of the ultra thin just with a solar cells, Logitech designers have crafted a...

Never needs batteries ever, great key travel and feel, Good quality materials and smart on/off detection

Solar cells face away from light during most usage scenarios, case not rigid, pricey

Product Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio Website www.logitech.com Specifications For Apple Ipad 2 and new Ipad, rechargeable NiMh batteries charged by dye-sensitised solar cells, two-year battery life, Bluetooth 3.0, 65 keys, 428x253x17.8mm, 460g (without...

Great quality keyboard with good travel and typing experience

Fixed viewing angle is not ideal when not on flat surface

As a result, there aren't that many Ipad users around that don't pamper their Apple tablets with some sort of add-on such as a protective sleeve. At £500 a pop, it's not surprising that they want to keep their beloved poke-pads safe and sound

"Expensive, but makes iPad a laptop replacement,"

 

Amazing product. I am very happy that I bought it. Allowed me to not buy a laptop for over a year. I used this to take notes in class, watch movies in the incline mode, and surf websites aka IT MAKES IT ALMOST EXACTLY LIKE A LAPTOP!

full keyboard, nice materials, not too bulky, never needs to charge the keyboard, I always get complements when I take it out to use it

expensive!
