There is no viable competition for the iPad Air 2 ClamCase+. I have purchased and used other keyboard/case combos from LogiTech, Belkin and Zagg. Each of these received excellent reviews by various magazines and online sites. None come close to the design and performance of the ClamCase+. The keyboard is comfortable and the keys very precise in their feel and function. Backlighting at 3 different levels of intensity is perfect. The Bluetooth connection works and stays connected unlike LogiTech and Zagg. The design allows comfortable use as a laptop, for viewing media content and folded over completely for reading. The materials are top-notch. This product just works well because of its design and features. Highly recommend the ClamCase+.
This is the best keyboard case on the market. Logitech, Belkin, ZAGG--they all fall short of the Clamcase's functionality and style. I had a Pro version for years, which I loved; the "360" hinge design and light weight made it unparalleled and ultimately versatile. It was time for a replacement, though, and I went with the Clamcase+. It is definitely an upgrade on an already excellent product. The "+" has enlarged cut-outs for headphone and lightning ports, allowing for the use of all types of cords without an adapter. The new case also has better balance on any surface, a thicker protective shell and a backlit keyboard, not to mention the "Space Gray" color looks sleek and high-tech. If you are debating whether to go with the "Pro" or "+," spend the extra $30 bucks. You won't be disappointed!
ClamCase+ - The Ultimate Protective Keyboard Case
I’ve used a ClamCase with all of my iPads dating back to the original. The iPad Air2 is my fourth. The ClamCase+ is what I’ve been waiting for. IMO the lack of a backlit key board on previous models was the only omission. I’m sure there were reasons such as battery life between charges and/or manufacturing costs. But who cares…ClamCase+ is now the total package!
The unit is well built, very flexible with multiple viewing adjustments, auto sleep/wake for the iPad Air2, incorporates functionality with special keys for the most commonly used iPad features, excellent typing experience for its size - albeit a bit cramped for some - and offers great protection from everyday mishaps (i.e. minor dings and scratches). IMO the ClamCase+ and your iPad will probably survive a low impact drop on carpet. Drops on harder surfaces will probably negate irreparable damage to your iPad although the ClamCase+ may not fare as well.
Another improvement although not related to the ClamCase+ functionality and/or features is the One Year Warranty. I mention this because my previous ClamCase Pro model (for the iPad Air2) only came with a 90 day warranty. Kudos to Incipio/ClamCase for addressing customer satisfaction to make the product more attractive!
My only difficulty with the ClamCase+ (after fully charging it) was paring it with my iPad Air2. To be honest not everyone interprets and/or processes information the same; nor as the author may have intended. Which is what occurred in my case (no pun intended) when attempting the paring operation.
Since my purchase of the ClamCase+ was an upgrade from the non-backlit keyboard model; for whatever reason, the paring operation did not occur automatically. I thought to correct the issue deleting my previous pairing would correct the problem. No Joy. Therefore, I attempted to manually pair the devices.
The manufacturer instructions to manually pair the ClamCase+ with your iPad Air2 reads as follows:
“On your ClamCase+ keyboard press and hold the fn + Bluetooth keys for 5 Seconds. The pairing LED will begin flashing”.
My first interpretation of that statement was to press and hold the fn + Bluetooth keys SIMULTANEOUSLY for 5 Seconds. Not so. I finally went the old school route - press and hold the fn key and after a second or two depress the Bluetooth key. Sha-zamm! The paring commenced and registered the ClamCase+ on my iPad Air2!
I’m just saying…maybe the instructions for manual pairing need to be adjusted or I need to improve my interpretation skills or maybe it was just a freak anomaly. Anyway, you have a work-a-round if you experience a similar occurrence.
In conclusion if you are considering a protective backlit keyboard case for your iPad Air2…the ClamCase+ should be on your short list. I highly recommend it!
It comes with a backlit keyboard that has eye-soothing white LED lighting. This gives you cooling typing experience especially in dark
After an unfortunate incident involving my previous case, it was time to purchase a new case. There was no consideration for anything but a new ClamCase. The keyboard in this case is a nice improvement. Definitely high quality! I am thoroughly pleased with this product, and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for such a product.
I'm a frequent flier that travels in excess of 300,000 miles a year. The time I have on airplanes is essential to my productivity and getting things done. All too often, passengers seated in front of me recline their seat (even in First Class) which renders my laptop unusable. In that spirit, I purchased the ClamCase+ for iPad Air 2 with the backlit keys to help me be more effecient when traveling. This keyboard case is phenomenal. It is lightweight compared to its competitors, the keys are responsive and the ability to use the case as a stand for consuming content, is second to none. Although the case is relatively expensive compared to others in this segment, it is an excellent product that I recommend for others that need similar mobile solutions.
Everything about the ClamCase+ feels thoughtful and elegant. The new metal lower case feels solid and looks professional. The plastic is so perfectly matched to the metal it doesn't look or feel like plastic. It looks and feels like the whole case is of a single material and unified construction. The old sharp edges have been replaced by beautiful curves that look great and feel smooth to the touch.
It looks fantastic open or closed. The new cutouts provide better and smarter access to ports. The keyboard feels even better than the old one, like a full laptop keyboard.
The ClamCase+ so rugged I think nothing off tossing it onto the bed or sofa. Not something I'd ever do with a MacBook.
The new hinge feels solid and smooth. And it's surprising how valuable using the ClamCase+ as a stand is. Have my iPad available at a glance on either my desk or on the sofa next to me turns it into the perfect second screen for reference or entertainment.
I couldn't decide whether to buy a MacBook or an iPad. The ClamCase+ provided the perfect, elegant solution to my dilemma.
The ClamCase+ turns my iPad into the business laptop I need it to be by day. When I'm done working, I just pop my iPad out and use it as the entertainment device I love.
usiness tool I needed all in one.
So far I am very happy with this case. I'm pretty picky with the design of stuff like this. I had the pro before this and had a couple of complaints. It only came in white and I have a grey iPad, so it never looked right. Also the charging and headphone holes weren't large enough for anything but Apple chords. This version addressed both of those complaints. Haven't even used the backlit function yet, but I'm sure I'll like using it in low light conditions, too. Great job!
There! Now it is perfect!!!
The pre-backlit ClamCase was good but it was lacking without the backlit functionality. I have tried other backlit options on the market but they just did not hold up: either they were flimsy, or didn't work well, or both.
I purchased the backlit new version the day I got the email to announce its release and am so happy I did. It is the same great looking, sturdy case but with a smart backlit addition. It feels so much like a laptop that I find myself looking for the touchpad underneath the spacebar occasionally.
Great job ClamCase! You made us wait for it, but it was well worth it. Thanks.
