When it comes to wireless keyboards, it’s really hard to tell online whether it’s going to be a good keyboard or not. A lot of wireless keyboards have poor range or are intermittent, or have issues reconnecting after the computer goes to sleep. For my home theater I needed to get a nice keyboard that I could use on my lap and use for gaming, where connectivity is at a premium.

What’s in the box

The box actually has a lot more than you’d expect. Instead of just the base keyboard, it comes with a skin cover (in case you have kids or are in a messy environment) and a charging cable. The keyboard itself has a pretty hefty metal frame, way sturdier than a normal plastic keyboard. It’s also a lot slimmer than normal keyboards.

The box itself is very slim as well. It’s a pretty tight package.

Jelly Comb Bluetooth Functionality

The keyboard itself has support for up to three different Bluetooth devices like PC’s, iPhones, iPads, etc. I was mainly concerned with using it with a PC for my home theater.

I was originally using a Jelly Comb mini keyboard in my home theater. The reason I got the mini one though wasn’t because of the home theater though, it’s because I was using it on my elliptical machine (where a normal sized keyboard would be too large).

Hooking it up to my pc was a pretty easy process. Just going into Bluetooth on the PC and ……

I didn’t have any issues with disconnecting with my PC despite the fact that my computer was in another room. A lot of times Bluetooth can be finicky when the range is longer or there’s not great line of sight.

Is the Jelly Comb a good keyboard?

The backlight in my home theater is actually awesome, my biggest problem in there is that I can’t see the keyboard very well. This is where this keyboard is a big improvement over the smaller one I had been using which wasn’t backlit.

The charging cable is USB-C, which isn’t my favorite honestly but it’s ok. I know that’s kind of the upcoming standard but I don’t have a lot of USB-C cables yet, so it’s a little harder to charge than say my Kindle.

In actual use the keyboard I really like, it’s got a nice feel to it. It is a little cold against my legs sometimes when I’m wearing shorts. 🙂 I just throw a blanket over in that case.

I did try hooking it up to my phone just for fun as the keyboard allows 3 different Bluetooth devices to be used (switchable via 3 buttons). It worked decently well in practice.

Would I recommend the keyboard?

I’ve been using it quite a bit, it’s a pretty nice keyboard. It’s a little expensive that other wireless keyboards but other keyboards don’t have metal construction or triple Bluetooth capability either. If you’re looking for a slim wireless keyboard that’s backlit and has multi-Bluetooth capability, it’d be hard to beat the Jelly Comb. In fact, I typed part of this article from it.
