Microsoft Touch Cover 2, Keyboard Cover for Microsoft Surface, Black

Product information

Super-thin, ultra-light and with a backlight to help you type in the dark, the Touch Cover 2 from Microsoft is the ideal accessory for your Microsoft Surface.

The Touch Cover 2 is just 2.5mm thin so you'll barely notice the profile size increase on your Surface.

Microsoft has increased the number of sensors by over 13 times to make the cover more responsive and more accurate to type on.

A sensor will automatically activate the backlight and increase the brightness as there is less light available.

Built-in trackpad and Windows shortcut keys give you quick, easy ways to navigate Surface.

Touch Cover 2 connects to your Surface instantly through a magnetised connection, making it easy to attach and remove.

Flip Touch Cover 2 over your screen for protection from bumps and scratches. When your Touch Cover is folded back, the keyboard is disabled.

Touch Cover 2 is spill-resistant and easy to clean.

Touch Cover 2 is compatible with all models of Microsoft Surface.

Q & As

Microsoft Touch Cover 2, Keyboard Cover for Microsoft Surface, Black 4.7 5 3 3
Easy to use I have read plenty of "professional" reviews comparing the Touch and the Type covers and they always end up rating the Type variant over and above the Touch due to the lack of keypress and tactile response on this one, but they never go into any detail about what the Touch is actually like to use... I have found typing to be easier on the Touch Cover 2 than just using the on-screen keyboard, I have far fewer typos and the "feel" of hitting this keyboard's surface (no pun intended) is a nicer experience than typing on the screen. Each key is very slightly raised from it's surround and there is a nice healthy gap between them (something unfortunately missing on the Type where the gaps are too close) and of course you already know about the sheer amount of sensors inside this thing to ensure detection and accuracy. The trackpad doubles up as a gestures pad so you can swipe in from the left or right etc., to get to your charms menus, and this function works very well indeed. You can also two-finger scroll the screen from here and use pinch to zoom negating the need to use the touchscreen at all if you don't want to move your hands from their keyboard position. My only gripe about the keyboard is the trackpad's size which could have done with being a little bigger. The left and right mouse buttons at the bottom of the pad become a little tricky to use as a result, but overall this is just a minor irritant rather than show stopping in any way. Also, I have not noticed any discernible difference to the battery drain, considering it is backlit. Recommended addition to your Surface if, like me, you wanted to keep the thickness of the cover to an absolute minimum. 17 March 2014
Great - compact and easy to use I bought this one over the bulkier "Type" cover keyboard because I will plug in a full keyboard when I'm at my desk so only want a keyboard for when travelling - so wanted the slimmest possible. This does exactly what I need. 07 January 2014
Great addition to the Surface 2 The keyboard is back lit and is an improvement on the first keypad I purchased 10 months ago for my Surface RT. This new keypad is compatible with the Surface 2 that I have purchased for my 8 year old. He loves the tablet / laptop combination of the Surface 2 and finds this new keyboard more responsive than mine - I couldn't possibly comment as he will not let me use it!!!!!! 01 January 2014
