Microsoft Type Cover 2, Keyboard Cover for Surface

Product information

The ultimate accessory for those who love to type, the Type Cover 2 for Microsoft Surface is backlit and thinner than ever.

An integrated backlight will help you work in any lighting conditions, with a sensor automatically activating the backlight as it gets darker.

The ergonomic, mechanical keys feel responsive and make fast typing easy. Type Cover 2 features the full range of shortcuts, function keys and media controls that you'd see on a much larger keyboard. A trackpad will let you control the cursor, just like on a laptop.

Keys are automatically disabled when the Type Cover 2 is flipped back, so you won't start typing when you just want to browse. Closing the Type Cover 2 will turn of your Surface's display, helping to preserve battery power when you're not using it.

The easy attach and disconnect magnets make it easy to remove your Type Cover 2 when it's not needed.

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

Q & As

Microsoft Type Cover 2, Keyboard Cover for Surface 4.6 5 18 18
Works Perfect The keyboard was delivery on time & worked perfectly 09 September 2014
Adds to the capabilities of my Microsoft Surface 2 After using just the screen to type I can now use a regular keyboard which speeds things up. Product is slim and covers the screen when closed. For travel I would recommend a further case for protection. 13 August 2014
you have to purchase with the surface pro You need to buy this to go with the surface pro. I wouldn't call this a cover, as it offers no protection to the surface pro. Its a quick and easy snap on and off keyboard. I wouldn't buy a remote keyboard because of the time delay when typing which is so annoying. This is better connected to the screen. Downside after using for 5 months, the keyboard starts to wear away with use. The mouse area has faded with use and you have to really press hard on the keys and the mouse area. its not as sensitive as it used to be. I wish they had brought out a more hard wearing plastic type of design rather than this. 10 July 2014
Surface Pro 2 add-on Perfect partner, snap-on a breeze, great protection for my Surface Pro. Makes it a great lightweight Netbook. 09 July 2014
Good 'feel' and protection too. Great 'feel' to the keys similar to a 'real' keyboard with buttons that move and not just touch sensitive. Also offers protection to screen when folded - all in all a very good addition to the surface, much better than screen when you type in notes etc. for more than a couple of minutes. you can type comfortable for hours with this key board - its very light too not noticeable. 09 July 2014
Great keyboard that goes with the Surface Pro 2 The keyboard is back-lit which is extremely useful when the room is dark and the keys work very well. Attaching it to the the Surface Pro 2 is very easy and the magnetic grip is fantastic. Would recommend this keyboard to anyone. 08 July 2014
Type 2 Cover Blue Purchased this cover for my Surface 2. Delivery: 5/5 Delivered promptly and well packaged. The Cover: 5/5 As a student practicality and portability are very important when travelling to and from lectures. The cover adds practically nothing to the weight of the tablet whilst still provides protection for the screen. The keyboard is on the whole is very good. Responsive and easy to use. A slight niggle I first found when using it was the location of some of the keys specifically the 'End' key, moving from a larger laptop it was slightly annoying when I kept hitting the table where the key used to be. However with use and practice this is no longer a problem. Also one final note ... IT LIGHTS UP!!!!! 29 April 2014
Good product The keyboard is easy to use, light and acts as a good cover too. I like the fact that it is backlit, so good for using in the dark. Only trouble is the key pad, sometimes you have to tap it pretty hard to make it click, but I find that I use the touchscreen to click anyway. This is the only place I could find the purple type cover 04 February 2014
