Similar to Logitech's solar keyboards for Mac® and PC, the Logitech
Solar Keyboard Folio includes onboard solar cells that charge the
built-in Bluetooth® keyboard in any light, whether indoors or outdoors.
When fully charged, the battery lasts for up to two years, even in
complete darkness (based on a average use of two hours per day).
"Now that people are seemingly inseparable from their tablets, using
them for everything from sending emails to watching videos, they want
accessories powered to meet their needs," said Alexis Richard, director
of product marketing at Logitech. "The Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio is
a smart partner for your iPad. Its sleek built-in keyboard uses light to
charge and it provides hassle-free protection for your iPad — both for
the front and back. It gives you an ideal way to use and protect your
tablet without adding bulk."
The Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio has two stand positions, so when you
want to use your iPad you can choose the viewing angle that's best for
you. Open the folio and place your iPad in the first position to enjoy
the full keyboard when you're typing. Place your iPad in the second
position and the first keyboard row acts as your one-touch media
playback and volume controls, so you can play, pause and change volume
The folio also has an instant On/Off function, which means your iPad
automatically wakes when you open the folio and goes on standby when you
