    How much would it cost to get a quality external battery and a quality keyboard cover for an iPad?
    Don't know about the battery, but one of the best keyboard covers for the iPad 4 is the Logitech Ultrathin keyboard cover.... MSRP $99, but is often discounted... I have a black one that I bought for my iPad 4 for $80. I bought a red one for my wife's iPad 2 for $20.

    Having said that, I think that $130 for the Type Cover 2 is a bit excessive. I bought a purple one and love it but it was a hard pill to swallow.

    FYI, you can get refurbished type covers on ebay for less than 40 bucks shipped. At first all I could find was a bright pink/purple one. Then found a black one. Even came in a microsoft box, but it was as thin as a magazine, but not that flexible.

    I ended up pre-ordering it yesterday. $200 is steep (TBH I think Microsoft should be selling all these covers for at least half of what they are now) but I think over the long haul for me it'll be worth it of the 70% additional battery life is true. I'm pretty hard on my Surface, and end up recharging it quite a bit.
    I bought a 2nd laptop battery a few years ago for about $75. This is also a keyboard, I think it is priced right for what you are getting

    Its a neat idea to put a battery in a keyboard. Most keyboards have some dead space that are perfect for a few flat pouch like cells. Its just the fact I had read problems with the keyboard draining power or not working when its resumed that puts me off. Plus not sure ther eis a way to recharge the keyboard apart from the surface. Think for now I would rather have a generic power connector for it and one of those portable batteries used for an ipad or phone charger between outlets.
