Ok, I have a bit of long story to tell.
I bought actually almost everything you can imagine for this tablet.
I bought that metal official keyboard dock.
I bought also that light small black keyboard you have to the right side (exectly identical that one)
I bought also the case you have to the right side (exactly identical that one).
Let me explain why I bought all 3 of those.
The metal keyboard, I use whenever I lay day on bed and watching TV-show or movie to rest my back, I hate sitting up cause my back hurts. So I would attach Hi12 together with the keyboard and then tild the whole entire thing so it looks like portrait mode in tablet. In that way, I can watch it while laying down in my bed. And I love it!
Without that keyboard dock, I wouldn't manage to do this otherwise. I also use the metal keyboard if Im sitting in the couch cause it's more comfortable.
The other black keyboard, I only use whenever I sit infront of my desk, that's all.
The case you have in that pic, I have it on my chuwi hi12 24/7 - even when docking into the metal keyboard - because it works fine, no problem! That case was the best accesorry I have every bought for my chuwi Hi12, worth every penny!
I also bought a 2.4 Ghz Rapoo 8000 keyboard which is much better than the black one you bought there. In fact, Im planning to just let that black keyboard rot somewhere in the basement cause the Rapoo 8000 is so much better!
It comes in a set with both mouse and keyboard and everything costed me only 15 USD.
The metal keyboard, I would never bring it to travel cause it's so heavy. If you are not planning to use it in the bed or couch like me, you don't have to buy it.
The Rapoo 8000 on the other hand, I can totally recommend you, its weight is only 300 gram. So add it together with Chuwi, you will get the total weight of around 1100 gram (still lighter than Chuwi Hi13 main tablet lol...)
The black keyboard you showed us there is only maybe 200 gram, very very light but I hate to use cable.... Annoying af.
The case is def worth to buy, in fact: a MUST buy! Cannot find anything negative with that case - at all. Since you will never have to take it off and the quality is amazing.
And I would never ever recommend you to buy any bluetooth keyboard or products for this tablet. Why ? Because if you use bluetooth, you cannot use wifi at the same time because this wifi is soooo slow if bluetooth is on. They both use the same chipset. So only use Wifi or bluetooth, never use both at the same time, unless you bought external wifi dongle.
PS: Another good reason why you should buy the metal keyboard could be if you want to sell this tablet in the future.
Most customers wouldn't like to buy a 2-in-1 tablet without its keyboard dock... They see this more as a laptop than just a tablet so if you want to have good secondary value, then buy with keyboard so you can get rid of the tablet easier if you one day want to sell it.
I managed to sell my freaking Asus Transformer (the very first one tf101) in no time - just because I actually did buy a keyboard dock for it and customers loved that selling point to have small laptop!
