Meet this super budget Bluetooth keyboard by Alcatroz. It reminded me of Alcatroz Trilium BTR 1 that I reviewed previously. It is ultra-slim and portable. Loaded with 78 UV coated chiclet keycaps which are extremely durable, rated at up to 5 million keystrokes. How does it perform? Read on to find out…

Package Content & Design
Alcatroz Xplorer GO 100BT comes in a well-protected packaging just like other Alcatroz products. Besides the keyboard, there are 2 AAA batteries and user manual. And there are 2 colours to choose – black and white.
Xplorer GO 100BT build quality is great for its price. Decent ABS plastic as housing. Compact in size but you still get full-size keyboard layout without numpad and insert, home and etc keys. Easy to carry around along with you tablet. And all the keys are UV coated to ensure longer durability too.
At back, you can find 4 small anti-skid pads. No worry, they can keep the keyboard steady on the desk. And do check out the on / off switch and Bluetooth connect button. Finally, the 2 AAA batteries slot.
As usual, no height adjustment for this ultra-slim keyboard. No worry, you get the same typing experience as typing on laptop’s keyboard. Do check out those low profile keycaps too.
Yeah… Excellent Bluetooth range is what you get from Alcatroz Xplorer GO 100BT. It passed the 10m test without obstacles easily. As long as you are in the same room with your devices, you are well connected. In addition, the response is as quickly as a wired keyboard. However, it does not have fast Multi-Pairing function like its bigger brother. You need to pair manually on another device then. No caps lock indicator here too.
As you can see, Xplorer GO 100BT supports iOS, Android and Windows. Fn function keys have different function when switch among them. As usual, these shortcut functions are great addition to speed up your task. Media control and volume adjust are a must for me. How is the battery life? As usual, I can’t finish using the bundled batteries on daily casual usage. Based on specs, it can last around 120 days on standby mode. And up to 80 hours on usage.
Typing experience is great for this budget membrane keyboard. Thanks to full size keyboard layout. I can type as fast as I used to. Shorter travel distance thanks to low profiles keycaps. As usual, soft and silent too. Overall, it is great to use Xplorer GO 100BT with tablet, smartphone and even PC.
