TAKE LEARNING TO
THE NEXT LEVEL
Meet Rugged Combo 4, the versatile classroom companion for the new generation of iPad. A flexible tool that lets students read, watch, type, sketch, and use the camera to holistically engage with educational content. Best of all, Rugged Combo 4 is durable and schoolyard ready with military-grade drop protection, pluck-proof keys, and a full-size keyboard that's sealed against spills. Plus, it connects securely via Smart Connector so students never have to worry about charging or pairing.
BUILT FOR SCHOOL
Rugged Combo 4 has military-grade drop protection up to 6’6”. We even backpack-tested it (meaning we put it in a bag and dropped it 10,000 times), so you can rest assured that if students fumble it on the bus or knock it off a desk, both case and iPad are protected. Plus, the new outer material is easy to clean and resistant to frays and stains.
POWER AND PAIR
IN ONE CLICK
Say goodbye to wireless pairing woes. Rugged Combo 4 instantly pairs with iPad via the Smart Connector—which means students will never need to charge because power is sourced directly from iPad. Data is transferred securely, so students can’t access each other’s information.
A durable, high-performance membrane seals in the keyboard, protecting against spilled drinks, cafeteria crumbs, and sticky hands. The membrane is also a barrier for curious prying fingers as it makes our keys truly pluck-proof. When that inevitable student accident does occur, the keyboard can be safely wiped clean.
FOUR USE MODES
Rugged Combo 4 is flexible enough for any task (and tough enough for any grade level).
Type Mode: Dock the keyboard upright and pull out the kickstand to take class notes and essays.
Sketch Mode: Fully extend the kickstand back for the perfect angle to take notes or draw with Logitech Crayon or Apple Pencil.
Viewing Mode: Fold back the keyboard and pull out the kickstand to watch lectures and educational videos.
Read Mode: Tuck the kickstand in and fold the keyboard back to read e-books, articles, and more.

A HOME FOR
A secure magnetic latch holds either Logitech Crayon or Apple Pencil. Now students always have a digital pencil within reach for easy note-taking, drawing, and more.
Typing can get loud - and that can get distracting when students are working in the classroom. So we designed the keys to type silently. Your students will thank you.
Flexible kickstand offers 40° of tilt so students can always find the right angle for the assignment at hand. A sturdy mechanical hinge ensures the kickstand stays firmly in place and does not collapse, even with strong tapping.
