Ultra-Slim, Ultra-Versatile

Lightweight, portable Slim Book keyboard and case not only protects your device, it lets you unleash your creativity and increase your productivity. Transform your tablet and use it like a laptop. The Slim Book operates in keyboard mode, case mode, video mode, and book mode.

Slim, Sleek Protection

Slim Book provides reliable protection with a lightweight, streamlined, polycarbonate case that fits easily in your bag. The sturdy keyboard gives you a solid surface to type on, just like a laptop. When you’ve finished, simply close Slim Book, slip it into your bag, and go confidently knowing your tablet is protected.

Multi-Pairing Capability

You can take multi-tasking to a whole new level, thanks to Slim Book’s multi-pairing capability. Pair the keyboard with three different devices, like your tablet, smart tv and your smart phone, and then toggle between them with just the click of a button.

Rechargeable Battery

Nothing is worse than opening your tablet, sitting down to work, and realizing your battery is on its last legs. Slim Book’s rechargeable battery keeps you typing up to two years between charges*. The sleep/wake function helps preserve battery life when the keyboard is not in use.

Multiple Viewing Angles

Slim Book’s adjustable magnetic cradle hinge holds your device securely at multiple viewing angles perfect for typing, reading, or just watching a movie or video chatting with friends. When you’re finished, the keyboard folds flat, providing additional protection for your device.

Detachable Case

The Slim Book case detaches from the keyboard which allows you to place your device on one surface and type with the keyboard on another. The detachable case also lets you function in four modes: book, keyboard, case, and video.

Laptop-Style Keys

The ability to work anywhere doesn’t mean much if you can’t work comfortably. Laptop-style keys make typing easy, and the backlight feature lets you type in lowlight conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love how it protects the IPad We have had zag keyboard on all of our Apple devices this is the first one that didn’t come with charging cord we were very disappointed since it is the most I’ve ever paid for one it would have been a cheap piece of hardware that would’ve kept the customer happy other than that we love it, it protects the iPad and is very functional thanks Zagg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YES, HEAVY, BUT WORTH THE PROTECTION/ENGINEERING I purchased this Slim Book Case about a month ago. As is noted in other reviews, it is a bit on the heavy side weighing in at nearly that of the iPad Pro. That said, it offers superb protection, great key feel, easy bluetooth connection and overall sense that the engineers wanted this one done right. No cutting corners to save weight.

Is this compatible with the 2018 12.9 iPad Pro?

Asked by: huzmaztl
No. Someone else said yes, but as a ticked off customer that bought it, paid for expensive shipping, just to find it doesn't work. I can verify it doesn't not fit at all.

Can this case be used in the keyboard mode while sitting in your lap? That is the way I use mine the most. It looks like it wouldn't be very stable. 

Asked by: JWalsh
Absolutely. Its more rigid than you would think. I've had this model for my iPad Air 2 for months and have never had any issues working off of my lap.

How is the screen protected while in "case mode'?

Asked by: LisaA
"Case Mode" does not protect the screen at all.  "Case Mode" just protects the back of the tablet only.

Loved this, but the hinge wasn’t engineered to last.....about 5-6 months only.    I received an email this was back in stock.  Is it the same hinge or has it been improved to last now?

Asked by: Zaagpad
Oh no, we're sorry to hear that. We have redesigned the Slim book to have stronger hinges. If you'd like a replacement under warranty please give us a call at 800.700.9244.

How do I turn on the back lit  keyboard?

Asked by: Ladyrx70
Hold down the backlit key, which looks like a lightbulb for a few seconds, and then you can rotate through the colors by using the FN and right arrow key.
