ZAGG Rugged Folio for iPad mini review (Video)

By Taylor Martin July 30, 2014, 7:50 pm

Some view iPads and Android tablets as little more than devices made for multimedia consumption – watching YouTube videos, playing games, reading books, and Web browsing. But some people seek a little more out of their tablets and opt to pair them with a Bluetooth keyboard.

The problem is, a lot of mobile keyboards are poorly executed. They’re either completely separate or they don’t add a lot of protection.

ZAGG has the answer to this problem: the Rugged Folio. Available for both iPad mini models and coming soon for the iPad Air, the ZAGG Rugged Folio is both a truly rugged case for those who either work in rough environments, enjoy the outdoors, or for people with constant butter fingers.

Like the ZAGGkeys Cover, the Rugged Folio has a very strong hinge which the iPad can be easily removed from, and it comes with four different modes: Case, Book, Keyboard, and Video. The keyboard will be the crux for most people, however, since space is tight. The keys are smaller than those found on your standard keyboard and they’re very close together.


The Rugged Folio does have battery life on its side, though, claiming to only need to be charged every two years. Of course, we didn’t have quite enough time to put that to the test, so we’ll just have to take ZAGG’s word on it.

If you’re not opposed to the $139.99 price tag (plus tax), the ZAGG Rugged Folio is definitely worth checking out, but if you need more convincing, check out the ZAGG Rugged Folio review video below!
