best-in-class protection (and the convenience of a keyboard)

we believe good enough isn’t good enough

So, we make it a point to go above and beyond—even in the way we test our products. Military standards for drop testing require that a product like Dux be able to maintain all operating functions after plummeting 26 times for a height of 4 feet. We subjected Dux to our own extreme testing at 6.6 feet. It passed. And that calls for the best drop of all…a mic drop.
Dux Keyboard Locking Mechanism

our locking keyboard is a greater attraction than a magnet

It’s one thing for your keyboard to be firmly attached to your laptop when sitting atop a desk. But entirely something else to remain secured when carried in your backpack. Because we understand that part of the reason you have a laptop is the ability to be mobile, we designed our keyboard so it won’t detach while in your bag (a primary cause of damage to the screen). Our push button release ensures a more reliable connection than a magnetic one.

because sometimes you just can’t buy a (missing) vowel

If only it was easy enough to ask Pat for the letters you need…to replace the ones that go missing from a keyboard. By designing individual keys that are securely locked into place, we’ve eliminated the opportunity for idle hands to mess around and tamper with digital gear they don’t own but is in their possession. (Of course, they would never do such a thing, right?)

Twice as smart

Keep either your pencils or crayons safely and conveniently stowed in the space cleverly designed for both.

you’ll flip for this feature that flips for you

The Dux keyboard can fold 360° around the back of the case so you can lay your iPad on top of it. This simple reversal gives you the ability to use your digital device in its more traditional method—sans keyboard—without the need to detach anything. Don’t worry, keys automatically deactivate in this position (and will reactivate 3-4 seconds after being returned 360° in the other direction).
