Go Ahead, Get Rugged
If you play as hard as you work, and work as hard as you play, you need a device that can keep up with you, on any surface, in any environment. Rugged Book transforms your tablet into a go-anywhere, do-everything device.
We call it “rugged” for a reason. With four layers of stainless steel, polycarbonate and rubber, Rugged Book protects your device from impact and corner damage and can withstand falls up to 6.6 feet. Drops happen, but damage doesn’t have to.
Rugged Book pairs with tablet, phone, or other device quickly and easily. No wires to get in your way, freeing you up to work anywhere, anytime.
You’re not good when you’re running on empty, and neither is your tablet. Rugged 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
Rugged Book’s sturdy adjustable cradle hinge holds your device securely at multiple viewing angles perfect for typing, reading, or just watching a movie or facetiming with friends.
The Rugged Book case detaches from the keyboard which allows you to place your device on one surface and still type with the keyboard on another. The detachable case also lets you function in four modes: book, keyboard, case, and video.
The ability to take your device anywhere doesn’t mean much if you can’t work comfortably when you get there. Laptop-style keys make typing easy, and you can even type in lowlight conditions, thanks to the backlighting feature—available in seven colors—which can be adjusted to three brightness levels.
- Tech Specs
The rechargeable battery keeps you typing for up to two years between charges*, and the sleep/wake function helps preserve battery life when your keyboard is not in use.*Based on regular use of one hour per day.

Reviews & Questions
Rugged Book for the Apple 9.7-inch iPad, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad Air 2 (Black) is rated out of 5 by 127.Rated 5 out of 5 by Sheets from Excellent Product This product had wonderful reviews to begin with which is why I looked into it. I first noticed them online then got a chance to play around with it at Best Buy. I was really impressed and decided to reach out to ZAGG direct since I was purchasing in a large quantity. We received them rather quickly and they have been the best purchase we could have made. Very happy so far with this product.Date published: 2019-02-12Rated 5 out of 5 by DC2022 from Well built This product is well built and made to last. I’ve had it for about 2 months and haven’t had to charge it, and that’s with using it several hours every day typing notes in class. The only complaint I have is that you have to take the case off if you have an apple pencil (1st gen) and need to charge it. Other than that this isn’t a great product and would recommend to anyone!Date published: 2019-02-08

What's the difference between this rugged book and the first one you released? Which I own. Should I upgrade and why?I was told this Rugged Book will fit the Apple 9.7-inch Ipad. It does fit but.......when face timing Ive been told that it sounds very muffled. I did some searching for the microphone and the pin holes for the microphones next to the camera lens are COVERED by the casing! Something isnt right here.Date published: 2018-11-22
Why are model numbers missing? New model in 2018, but I also see older models for sale. So hard to tell which one is the "right" one. Help, which is the newest model and what is the model number?This keyboard is compatible with the 2018 iPad 9.7"Date published: 2018-05-26
Is there a place to store the pencil?I have the Rugged Book for my iPad Pro 9.7. It doesn’t have a place for my Apple Pencil so I picked up A Pen-Pal and I adhered it to the back of the iPad side of the Rugged Book. Helps out a lot. I also picked up a male/female lighting connector so I can pair my pencil when neededDate published: 2018-11-15
