Satechi launches four new backlit keyboards, redesigned iPad Stand

Satechi has announced four new additions to its line of USB-C backlit keyboards:   the compact and portable Slim X1 Bluetooth Backlit Keyboard and Slim X1 Wired Backlit Keyboard, as well as the full-sized Slim X3 Bluetooth Backlit Keyboard and Slim X3 Wired Backlit Keyboard. 

The company is also launching a new, redesigned version of its tablet stand, the Aluminum Desktop Stand for iPad, which complements the keyboards. Satechi’s new Slim X1 Backlit Keyboards offers a full QWERTY layout in a slim profile and can be placed in a briefcase or backpack.

Satechi’s Slim X3 Backlit Keyboards sport an extended layout including a numeric keypad. The new keyboards are designed to complement Apple devices with a sleek, aluminum finish. 

The built-in function hot keys let users work across Mac and iOS devices. The Bluetooth X1 and X3 keyboards also feature multi-device Bluetooth functionality. Select one of the three assigned keys on the X1, or four on the X3, to an alternate Bluetooth device and continue working across an iPhone, iPad, laptop or desktop with the press of a button. 

The Slim X1 and X3 Backlit Keyboards boast illuminated keys with 10 adjustable brightness levels. The Bluetooth keyboards include a rechargeable USB-C port. The Slim X1 and X3 Wired Keyboards come equipped with a built-in USB-C cable so users can plug and play to any compatible USB-C device. 

The new Aluminum Desktop Stand for iPad that pairs with the new keyboards. The stand provides a hands-free solution to elevate tablets for optimal viewing. The adjustable 180° mount and 135° base hinges give users the ability to adjust their iPad to a preferred height and angle for video calls or surfing the web. The space gray aluminum finish and protective grip padding complement Apple devices, while keeping them safe from slips and scratches.
