Rugged Protection for the Device that Does It All
You use your iPad for everything: work, play, family, travel. You need a keyboard that can maximize your productivity and a case that can withstand the commute and your kids. Rugged Book Go helps you keep on top of it all with the ability to sync with two devices, a detachable case, and backlit, laptop-style keys.
Tough, Durable Case + Lightweight Keyboard
The Rugged Book Go keyboard and case is cleverly designed to give you the best of both worlds: lightweight convenience and rugged protection. The amazingly durable TPU-wrapped case can withstand drops up to 6.6 feet. The slim, lightweight keyboard makes this the perfect portable solution.
Holder for Apple Pencil
Built-in holders for the Apple Pencil are located at the top of the keyboard and at the base of the cover that holds your iPad. So your Apple Pencil is stored safely when it’s not in use, and is right where you need it when inspiration strikes.
The laptop-style keys have optimal key travel so that you get clean, precise, even pressure with each keystroke which facilitates fast and accurate touch typing. Backlighting is available in seven different colors, so it’s easy to type in lowlight conditions.
Detachable Keyboard for Multiple Uses
The Rugged Book Go keyboard and case can be easily detached to accommodate different uses and work environments. The cover of the Rugged Book Go, with its reverse kickstand, can support your iPad on one surface while you type with the keyboard on another.
The Rugged Book Go keyboard and case can pair with two devices at once, so you can sync with both your iPad and your smartphone and toggle between them.
The Rugged Book Go keyboard’s long-lasting battery lets you type up to one year between charges, so you don’t have to drag along extra cords for charging.*
*based on regular use of one hour per day without backlight.

Reviews & Questions
Rugged Book Go for the Apple iPad 12.9-inch Pro (US English) is rated out of 5 by 6.Rated 5 out of 5 by Linnbin from Excellent Product! I actually purchased 2 of these books. They cost over $600 in Canada with exchange and duty but so worth it. My husband has recently become sight impaired and the case helps so much as he can feel where the various buttons are and use the IPAD for radio and podcasts. It even has a built in holder/charger for the pencil and you use the same charger for the keypad as the IPAD. It is so superior to the Apple one and less expensive.Date published: 2019-07-30Rated 5 out of 5 by CMFS from Protective This case makes the iPad a tad heavy, but the fact it is in a sturdy case makes it worth it. The bending issue that has been floating around about the larger iPad pros worried me, but with this case I don’t worry. I bought one for my wife as well, who is a school teacher, and she will be taking it to school to help with her classroom.Date published: 2019-07-22
