ZAGGkeys iPad Profolio+ Keyboard Case {Review}

ZAGG logo
This holiday season, there will be presents of all sizes, shapes and prices that are gifted to family and friends near and far. Toys, clothes, jewelry, appliances — you name it, it's on a wishlist.

But even though we all have our own diverse tastes and preferences, one category that is guaranteed to be extremely popular is electronics. Is there any doubt that smartphones and tablets are going to pop up on just about every child, teen and adult's most-yearned-for list?

However, if you or a loved one is lucky enough to receive one of these devices, it's important to not forget the must-have that absolutely needs to come with it: a case. After all, no one wants to follow the elation of receiving their dream gadget with the devastation of seeing it broken!

Which is why now is the perfect time to head over to ZAGG to pick up the stylish, high quality, most convenient cases (and accessories) for any and all mobile devices.

ZAGG products

Bursting onto the scene in 2005 with the introduction of their innovative and amazing invisibleSHIELD, ZAGG has since become a world-wide phenomenon in the way people think about enhancing and protecting their gadgets.

No matter what personal electronics are a part of your daily life, ZAGG has an award-winning product that can keep it safe, make it more useful, extend its life, and more.

Most recently around here, I have been amazed once again at the way that ZAGG has provided convenience, portability and protection for the iPad with their ZAGGkeys iPad Profolio+ Keyboard Case.

Right out of the box it is easy to see that this case is the perfect combination of quality, style, and convenience.

The ultra-thin design is less than an inch tall and the polyurethane full body protection on the front as well as the back of the iPad provides perfect (fashionable) protection that is just right for men and women, whether for business or casual use.

But as soon as you flip the Profolio+ open, the magic hidden away inside is laid out right before you: the beautiful Bluetooth keyboard.

Assembly was nearly nonexistent, as an iPad slips securely in the side and then it just takes a few quick taps of your tablet's Settings to utilize the Bluetooth connection and the keyboard is ready and working. 

The built-in stand makes it simple to prop the iPad up horizontally at just the right viewing angle and incorporating the keyboard essentially turns the whole thing into a mini-laptop or netbook. What more could you ask for?

The keyboard itself  includes customizable backlit keys, so you're able to type anytime, anywhere, while also providing an absolute must in my mind: actual keys.

No more pecking at digital boxes or having to go through multiple steps to use an apostrophe or a hyphen, not to mention that ZAGG included great function keys that make using all aspects of the iPad easier such as volume control, copy/paste, play/pause, screen lock, search, home, and more.

ZAGGkeys iPad Profolio review

While I think that the iPad itself is a fantastic invention, I absolutely love the way that the Profolio+ Case has enhanced it and made it even more functional. It isn't bulky or heavy in the slightest (in fact, it only weighs 16 ounces!) so carrying it around is a breeze as it the whole thing fits right into my purse or bag with ease.

Plus, as this case contains a 510 mAh rechargeable lithium polymer battery, the Bluetooth keyboard can last for last several months of normal use without needing charging. And when it finally does come time to give it a charge, simply connect the provided USB cable right to the port on the side and you'll be prepared to go again.

Retailing for $129.99 (Cyber Monday sale today only $103.99!!), the ZAGGkeys iPad Profolio+ Keyboard Case is currently available in black, mocha and brown and works with the Apple iPad 2, 3, or 4. Even though the cost of this is higher than other iPad cases that are available, the incredible quality and durability of this one makes it perfect to have or give as an extremely-appreciated gift to the iPad owner in your life.

Be sure to head over to to find out more about this and all of their innovative products (and Cyber Monday sales!), while connecting with them on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest as well.

Other than the ZAGGkeys iPad Profolio+ Keyboard Case that I was sent in order to facilitate my review, I was not provided with anything or enticed to do this post in any way. This review is solely my opinion of this company and their products.

I have been looking for a new iPad case for my son's iPad and I think this is the one!! It looks beautiful and sturdy. Just what I needed, thank you for the review.

I didn't think I needed anything from Santa this year... I can tell that this would make my iPad mini much more usable. Now I want a keyboard for my home computer that has back lit keys. Thanks for the review.

This looks like a really nice case! I like how the screen can be opened with the case still attached.

Thanks for the great review. That is one reason why I have been holding off. I am a keyboard girl. I still like laptops better than tablets!

We've had great luck with Zagg products, especially the ZaggSparq for portable power when traveling. I would have no hesitation recommending that, and I can see from your review that this keyboard is equally well designed.

I'm sitting here in the dark and it's a good thing I can touch type. I really need a back-lit keyboard

Gave one of these to my parents for Christmas. Great for when they need to post long paragraphs on pages.
