I was really excited to try out the BATTOP folio case with bluetooth keyboard. They provided me with one in exchange for my honest opinion and I received no other compensation for this review. We have a lot of electronic devices in our house, but this folio case was designed for 9-10" tablets. I only have one that will fit in the case, and I really wanted a keyboard with it. It is a Windows Nextbook that came with Windows 8, but I upgraded to Windows 10.
The case itself feels like it is made of some kind of suede material It's soft to the touch but solid enough to make sure the tablet and keyboard won't break when folded up inside of the folio case. The tablet fits into these rubber corners that hold it into place. The area that the tablet fits into rotates 360° which allows you to use your tablet horizontal or vertical. The tablet can be adjusted to be at four different angles against the keyboard for your maximum usage. The keyboard itself is magnetic and sticks to the folio case. You simply move the keyboard to where you want it and angle the tablet accordingly.
When you get the keyboard, it does not come fully charged, or at least mine didn't. It comes with a charger plug which is the kind that is standard for Android devices. When it is plugged in, there is a red charging light. The light turns off when it is finished charging. If you leave it turned on while it is charging, it will not fully charge. However, it can be used while it is plugged in so if the battery dies while you are using it, you can just plug it in and keep going.
Now for setting it up...I can't really say a lot of good about it. You'll see in my rather long video how much trouble I had setting this thing up. It's supposed to be really simple. Turn on the keyboard. Turn on the tablet. Turn on the bluetooth on the tablet. Turn on the bluetooth on the keyboard. The keyboard should show up on the tablet and you follow the "pairing" steps on the tablet. It SHOULD give you a passcode that you type into the keyboard and hit enter. It MIGHT give you a dialog box to input a passcode via the built-in tablet keyboard. Once you put in the passcode, the tablet should connect and the the keyboard should be usable.
Unfortunately for me, it gave me the passcode to enter on the keyboard twice, but nothing happened when I typed it in. Then it gave me the dialog box but it never gave me new passcodes to type into the dialog box so nothing I put it worked. I contacted the company, but they didn't get back to me before I tried it with a different tablet. I used my husband's android tablet, following all the steps I already outlined and it worked immediately. It was very easy there. I wrote down the code I used for his tablet and tried to connect to my windows tablet using that code. It worked the first time I did it, but that was off camera. Once I got it connected, I tried to demonstrate for my camera that the keyboard actually works, but it wouldn't connect once the tablet and/or keyboard were turned off and back on. I decided that I would demonstrate connecting to my husband's tablet and then to mine just like it had worked before for my video only to have it not connect to my windows tablet yet again. I tried lots of things to get it to work with my tablet, but to no avail. Out of curiosity, I decided to try it with my son's Amazon Kindle Fire. Those are basically android tablets. It connected to that tablet immediately. When I turned the tablet off and back on though, it no longer worked. So to use the keyboard with the Amazon Kindle Fire, it has to be re-paired every time. I do have an old Kindle Fire that I might use it will if I can get it to work. The kindle that is.
The keyboard works great once it is connected, but sadly the trouble I experienced with getting it to connect makes me not like it very much. My husband doesn't have any use for the keyboard with his tablet, so if I want to use it, I will have to find a new tablet that it will work with. I would not recommend it for a windows tablet. It works for Android tablets. The other type that it is supposed to work with is a iPad. I unfortunately do not have an ipad to test it. Anyway, you can make up your own mind after you watch my video demonstration.
