The ultra-large 12.9-inch iPad Pro is easily the best tablet on the market. What impresses me the most about this iPad is the ability to double up as a very competent laptop.
Apple's Smart Keyboard primed to let users get the best out of iPad Pro is appreciable. But, if you are looking for a nice case that can also work as a fabulous keyboard, then there is a hot option.
Razer Mechanical Keyboard Case for iPad Pro
Known to produce fantastic gaming keyboards, Razer, this time, around, has set the eyes on iPad Pro. And, going by the highly impressive features that Razer mechanical keyboard case boasts of, you can expect it to deliver the goods with élan.
Defining Low-Profile Mechanical Switch
The keyboard case comes with the world’s first low-profile mechanical switch for a mobile device. With Slim chiclet keycaps, optimized actuation and reset points along with actuation force of 70g, it makes typing very convenient.
Backlight Illumination with 20 Brightness Levels
The backlight illumination helps you use the keyboard effortlessly even under low light. As each key is individually lit, you don’t have any difficulty in locating a particular key even in the dark.
Moreover, there are as many as 20 brightness levels to let you adjust the keyboard case as per need.
The case comes with a metal kickstand which lets you change the angles as desired. I find this feature pretty handy.
There are times when you wish to use your device from a preferred angle; mostly while watching videos. It allows you to do that as comfortably as you like.
Good Battery Life
With the backlight illumination on, the mechanical keyboard case lasts up to 10 hours on a single charge. However, if the backlight illumination is disabled, it can go up to 600 hours.
While the case instantly connects to your tablet using Bluetooth, it charges via micro USB. It would be better had it made the most of Smart Connector. It’s the only drawback, if any, we have found in this advanced keyboard case.
