A word of caution - this keyboard has been on (mass)drop before and almost every one who purchased it has suffered the same fate. This keyboard will die. Mine is completely dead and will never function again. I believe the issue to be with the LiPo inside of it, after disassembling mine and looking for issues the only thing I could determine is that the LiPo has zero charge and cannot be revived by any LiPo charger I have. You can swap keycaps all day to make this thing look nice but it will only serve as a paperweight after a couple of weeks of use. I charged mine via USB every couple of days to avoid draining the battery but there is only so much you can do when they put a dying/dead battery inside. If you think you'll be satisfied using it over USB when the battery dies think again, you cannot.

Have you tried soldering a new battery? Dunno how the battery is set up but with the wireless keebs I've seen it's never been too hard

I replaced the battery and the keyboard worked again but with some issues. I was eventually sent a replacement directly from China and the replacement stopped working this week. I'll probably get bored and replace the battery on that one eventually too. FYI the leads are reversed on the JST plug on the board ... at least on the first one.

FWIW, my first one died very quickly - I don't think it lasted past a single charge. On the other hand... the replacement with Cherry MX Whites (80CN heavyish tactile) is still working now, a couple of years later. I'm typing this on it, and have switched between my PC (wired), iPad (BT#2) and Mac (BT#3) in the past ten minutes. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ recommended, so long as the return policy is good? Now, if only I could work out a way to re-BT-pair BT#1 (FN-Q), as the device it was paired to was wiped without deleting the pairing. The instructions are of no use for that purpose.
