Canadian manufacturer launches wired aluminum numeric keypad for Macs

For the homesick: Canadian manufacturer launches wired aluminum numeric keypad for Macs

At WWDC 2017, along with several new products, Apple also introduced the Magic Keyboard with numeric keypad. Before the arrival of this new accessory, Apple already marketed a numeric keypad; he, however, was not wireless. With the arrival of the model wireless, Apple decided to discontinue the wired model.

I particularly prefer to always avoid a tangle of wires on my desk, especially if the product has a phenomenal battery like the one that these Apple keyboards have. But as I like it like an arm, I’m sure some (or even many) of you prefer the convenience of a cable to worrying about recharges and batteries.

With that in mind, the Canadian manufacturer Matias launched the Wired Aluminum Keyboard. And this is exactly what you are seeing: something very, very close (visually speaking) to the Apple keyboard, only with wires (1 meter USB-A cable) and two USB 2.0 ports in which you can plug your mouse wired, pendrives, etc.

Another difference is a much more precise control of the volume of the speakers, since through the keyboard you can adjust up to 64 volume levels against 16 normally allowed by Apple.

Besides, it is basically everything here that we already know – with the possibility that you can purchase the keyboard in different languages. The Wired Aluminum Keyboard costs $ 60 and will start shipping in November. They apparently ship to Brazil at no cost.
