Belkin QODE Ultimate Pro
Belkin QODE Ultimate Pro Review
If you prefer your iPad Air keyboard bonded to a complete case, the Belkin Qode Ultimate Keyboard Case lives up to its name and delivers a great experience.
When you pair a good keyboard case with the iPad Air 2, you have a working system that is very portable. It leverages the best tablet available without compromising those times when a laptop better fits the situation.
The Belkin QODE Ultimate Pro impressed me when I reviewed the model for the iPad Air. The new version for the iPad Air 2 is even better due to the thinner iPad keeping things even slimmer.
The case consists of a lid that houses the iPad Air 2 and a keyboard unit. The QODE protects the expensive iPad Air 2 from the bumps and scrapes of use in the field. It is not ruggedized by any means but I feel comfortable with it after heavy use.

Opening the lid of the Belkin QODE Ultimate Pro exposes the keyboard on one side and the iPad Air 2 on the other. The keyboard is reminiscent of those on MacBooks, although slightly undersized due to the narrower iPad.
The iPad Air 2 can be placed on either of two magnetic strips behind the keyboard for typing. This supports using the iPad in either of two viewing angles, to suit the situation. Placing the iPad on either of the strips turns on the keyboard and removing it turns it off. This eliminates the need for a power button on the case.
