ZAGG debuts 10.2-inch iPad Rugged Pro Connect Keyboard and Case for the healthcare industry

ZAGG Rugged Pro Connect

ZAGG announced the US$169.99 Rugged Pro Connect case and keyboard for the Apple iPad 10.2-inch (7th-9th gen) that’s been designed to withstand the rigors of the healthcare profession. 

Engineered to be rugged, durable, water-resistant, and wipeable, the Rugged Pro Connect features interlocking keys that won’t pop off with repeated use, a snap-on screen protector, and a detachable keyboard to accommodate different use environments. The Rugged Pro Connect is also the first keyboard from ZAGG to draw power from and transfers data directly with the iPad—no batteries or keyboard charging required, according to CEO Chris Ahern. He adds that features of the Rugged Pro Connect include:

  • Rugged Drop Protection – the durable polycarbonate case provides 6.6 ft/2m of drop protection1.
  • Water-Resistant – the keyboard has an IPX2 rating2 and can withstand liquid spills, so you can simply wipe it off and keep on typing3.
  • Easy to Clean – Rugged Pro Connect can be sprayed and wiped down, so it can accommodate healthcare cleaning protocols.
  • Interlocking, “Stay-Put” Keys – the interlocking keys won’t pop off, and you get precise, clean strokes for comfortable typing.
  • Holder for Apple Pencil – the case has a fabric loop that holds the Apple Pencil so it’s always close at hand. 
  • Detachable Keyboard – the keyboard and case detach to allow for multiple uses.
  • Easy to Charge – the keyboard draws power from the iPad. You only need to charge your iPad to power the keyboard simultaneously.
