My slim book is sending extraneous characters - usually 2 or more with each key pressed. What do you recommend? I purchased it at Christmas time. thanks

Asked by: henriksonj
I had this problem before with one of my keyboards. I describe it as "typing drunk." I returned it before and had the same issue after so long. I actually discovered that it does that sometimes when the keyboard is near dead, if you charge it it seems to eliminate the problem (not that the battery lasts anywhere near advertised if you use it much. I usually charge mine like once a month or so).

Wondering if you have improved this product in any way? I´ve oned two so far, both broken in screen protector due to week plastic/bad hinge. I also have a line/scratch on my screen from the edge on the slim book between the keyboard and the palmrest.

Asked by: mac111
I too have had two units that the hinge broke and the first one caused the scratch line on my iPad Air 2 screen as well. Can't tell if the second one caused scratches since they were already there. My original purchase was in Jan 2015. I received the second unit as a warranty replacement in June 2015 and although several of its flaws were improved from the first one I had, the edge of the plastic screen cover that inserts into the keyboard hinge just broke on my second one, just after it had been one year from my initial purchase, meaning my warranty is technically up. Not very happy with this product and I sincerely hope Zagg is willing to replace it again since neither one I had lasted more than six to 7 months before breaking. Truly, I think I'd rather pay the difference and upgrade to the Rugged Folio if they will let me. If I don't at least get an even replacement I won't be buying Zagg products anymore.

Will this work with the iPad Pro 9.7?  I believe it's the same dimensions as the Air 2.  This looks more like what I'd like to get vs. the upcoming products for the Pro 9.7 that aren't available yet.

Asked by: Kennb3
We have a Slim Book for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro coming out soon. The best way to learn about upcoming product availability is through our email marketing list. You can subscribe in the upper left hand corner of our homepage.
