    I use the original Zaggmate and my Ipad 1 with the Citrix Receiver app with no problems.

    OK, I'm a new iPad user and i recently received the gift of a "pre-loved" ZaggMate keyboard/cover, however the USB-micro-USB cable is missing. Can I just use a generic USB-micro USB cable or do I need to order it through Zagg? Or will the keyboard charge together with the iPad? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My keyboard power doth runneth out soon. Thanks so much!!

    Yes, you can use a generic USB cable with the Zaggmate, no problem.

    My ZaggFolio keyboard stopped working.
    It was randomly locking shut my iPad, so I "forgot" him, and now I can't connect to him anymore. In fact, I suspected a low battery but it's just NOT charging now, I can't have a blue light and, as a matter of fact, I can't get any DELs to light up.
    Of course, I tried letting him charge (4 hours) to no use, I still can't recognize the keyboard.

    Any way to avoid the 10 pounds shipping charge ? T Normally I wouldn't mind, but seeing from the lenght of this thread and because I rarely use my keyboard (stopped working after my 3rd charge I think), I'm afraid I'm gonna have to send my keyboard pretty often...

    I sincerely apologize that the keyboard in your ZAGGfolio has stopped working. I can assure you that this is not a common problem with our ZAGGfolio keyboards and I would like to email you directly so that we can resolve this issue as quickly as possible.

    Portable use..?

    Does anyone know (preferably from personal experience!) about the zaggmate WITHOUT keyboard?

    Sorry if this has been asked before but i just wanted to know if when in use the case can be put on the back of the ipad and would not fall off..

    Thanks!

    Zagg customer was prompt and issue was fixed. Thanks again!

    And Flyingbadman, not sure I understand, but the ZaggFolio can't be used as a stand if the keyboard is not in the case. No idea bout the ZaggMate.

    Due to the curvature of the iPad sides it does not fit in the ZAGGmate without keyboard when the screen is face up.

    This is a bit worrying. I've got the same keyboard (Solo model without the folio) and the exact same problem - suddenly the keyboard just died; won't connect, won't work, won't charge or show any activity on the LEDs no matter what I do. My unit was brand new when this happened, I've only had it for a couple of days of very light/random use so I hadn't even recharged it once.

    Paying for shipping for the replacement (I live in Finland) so soon after purchase is definitely not something I'd like to do.

    ZAGGFolio keyboard case

    I have reviewed a few of them Keyboards cases, i do think that the ZAGGFolio has one of the better if not the best keyboard out there.

    We have one in our office for a few months now and seems to function well. (just that i read some people on the thread here had some issues with it)

    While some other solution can be half price, if someone is keen on a keyboard case and is a heavy iPad user, i think its worth the money.

    I began experiencing the same issue w/my zaggmate about 2 months ago. Then about 2 weeks ago the support piece that flips up broke. I was lucky that I still had aabou one week left in my one year warranty. I called zagg customer service & after they looked up my warranty/order info, they sent a replacement out the next day. I was very impressed with their customer service. The only issue I had was that there were no instructions for, or paperwork pertaining to, how to return the old zaggmate. I'm sure I can find it online though.
