Today we are taking a look at the Inateck BK1002E Bluetooth keyboard. As you may recall, we reviewed the BK1003E a few weeks back and now we are moving onto the keyboards younger sibling, the BK1002E. As with all of Inatecks products, the BK1002E demonstrates that quality does not have to be directly correlated with price.
The BK1002E keeps the same overall look as the BK1003E but instead of the black design of its successor, the BK1002E instead opted for a white and silver combination. With vibrant white keys made of a rubberized material and a silver coated plastic frame, the BK1002E will look great in any work environment.
Inateck kept it simple with the BK1002E and only added the necessary buttons and functions. Other than the obvious buttons (the keys themselves ), the only other buttons are on the back where you will find the on and off switch and the connect button. They’re placed on the raised bar which also functions as a permanent stand.
During our testing, we found the BK1002E to be a great portable keyboard. Keystrokes registered instantly and the rubberized material made typing on the BK1002E a pleasure. I did not lose my connection once and paring the BK1002E to my device took only a matter of minutes.
One of the only gripes I did have with the BK1002E was the lack of USB charging functionality. Instead you are required to use two AA batteries. With that said, the BK1002E is ideal for those that prefer to use batteries where you can carry some spares and never have to worry about running out of juice. Well, that is until you run out of batteries.
The BK1002E is a fantastic bluetooth keyboard that takes up very little space and is sure to be a welcome addition for the traveling writer. You can currently purchase one on Amazon for $16.99 and for a price like that, there is little reason not to snag one.
