Pebble Keys 2 K380s: The Review

When creating reviews I often use my tablet. It’s lightweight and portable, and powerful enough to edit the website. The only issue is I need an actual keyboard with me. I hate typing on touch screens, it’s just not the same and I can’t get comfortable. I have the keyboard cover for the Samsung and it’s ok but it means I can’t raise my tablet up for more comfortable viewing. So I grabbed a Bluetooth keyboard so I could work more comfortably.

First Impressions

I’ve used other products from this range before, having their pebble mouse in their bag constantly. Touch screens are useful but for long periods a mouse is just more usable and makes it easier to press smaller buttons. I like equipment that matches too, so I was excited to get the paired keyboard. Unfortunately I couldn’t get the sand colour at the time. So I went for the white, and figured I would buy a new mouse at a later date. Having one for the office wouldn’t be a bad idea.

Connecting

Connecting is super easy with the K380s. You can in fact connect to three different devices at the same time. With a simple press of a button you can switch between any of the three devices. Perfect for those who like to multitask. I find it easier to focus on one thing at a time. But perhaps when working from home this will become more and more useful to me in time.

Typing

Pretty much the main factor of a good keyboard, is it good for typing? and the short answer is yes. I have been using this keyboard for a few weeks now and I find it really comfortable for typing on. There is a learning period, but I think that’s that case with every keyboard. Although qwerty keyboards are generally similar there is always an adjustment period. This is the first keyboard I have used with round buttons. I thought this would be off putting at first and I would constantly miss keys, but to my delight it’s not been an issue at all. 

Bluetooth

The Pebble Keys 2 K380S keyboard is capable of connecting to three devices simultaneously. You have three buttons at the tip of the keyboard that allow you to seamlessly switch between devices. Connecting is easy, just hold down the desired button you want to link to a new device and wait until it flashes. That’ll put the keyboard on pairing mode and will let thenéew device connect straight to it. It’s rare I’d ever have to switch away from one device, but I did pair it to a couple for testing. It was really easy and switched instantly, so it’s perfect for those who do like to multitask.

Packability

This isn’t the most packable keyboard I’ve ever used. But packability always has a tradeoff with usability. I’ve used tiny foldable keyboards in the past. But often the fold is down the middle and they reduce the size of key buttons to accommodate this. The Pebble Keys 2 K380S isn’t foldable but it is slim. Weighing 415g I wouldn’t exactly take it with me if I’m trying to fly carry-on only. But if i was travelling for longer periods and had checked luggage I wouldn’t hesitate. 

Pebble Keys 2 K380s: Final Thoughts

I have regularly been taking the Pebble Keys 2 K380s with me to work. It fits perfectly along the inside of my Db Hugger. Taking up hardly any space, it’s only issue really is weight. I do have a keyboard case for my Tab S8, which is ok but not as good for typing. But if I didn’t have a heavy bag I would swap that keyboard for the Pebble Keys 2 K380s without hesitation. 

That said, I much prefer using the Pebble Keys 2 K380s for typing. It’s better than my laptop (handy as some of the keys are falling off that) and my tablet’s keyboard case. If I have the space then I will always bring this along, and the matching mouse.
