Review by our customers (thanks to all of you).
After connecting it, it is not very clear what you should do. But, let's be clear, there's not much you to do. just press the only hard button and it gets connected to the Bluetooth device of your choice. Done!
Straight after connecting it you can start typing with no additional configuration needed but, if you like, there is a world full of customization just entering the command mode*.* To do it, just follow these steps:
Step 1: open the word processor of your choice (also excel can work!) and click on the empty page as if you want to start typing;
Step 2: press the hard button until you see the device (approx. 2 sec) writing by itself (below a snap);
the intro of the command mode
Done that, just type "?" and you'll understand that you are, in reality, in front of a terminal where you can give real instructions to the device.
I'll not dive in detail in the several options you can edit but the basic commands are the ones shown here:
You can map any key (or combo with modifiers) with any other key or macros, set timers for repeating actions, make a key combination move the mouse pointer, avoid your pc to fall asleep (very helpful if you are not allowed to change some settings in your pc :P ....), and many other things.
It is to be mentioned the possibility to use the device also in USB-bridge mode. In this way you can switch (through a programmable key combination) between BT mode and USB mode and use your keyboard with two separates devices!

A review by Rafaël De Jongh
It has been about a good month now that I have been using this and from day one once I received it I was immensely surprised about this little yet fascinating tool that could indeed make anything from a wired keyboard or a mouse to an actual wireless Bluetooth device!
The first attempt was on a mechanical keyboard the Logitech G910, and it directly worked without any further adjustments, the only thing the company also warned me for is that the macro keys might not work and while they indeed did not work as the Logitech program that controls these obviously did not pick this Bluetooth transmitter up as their keyboard which is fairly logical. To that extent, I also imagined if perhaps it would be possible to bind specific unused buttons to these macro keys to bind specific commands as the Logitech macro software can do. While I’m not a specialist in this I do think for someone with more knowledge about this might certainly get this working.
But besides the macro keys and other non-standard keyboard buttons, the keyboard worked as expected and to have a wired mechanical keyboard run off a very small power bank to have it then connected to a Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android machine really made it very lovely to utilize this.
Obviously, I did not stop here, I tried out various wired gaming and non-gaming keyboards and mice. The best and most lovely experience I got was when I hooked this device up to my old yet still most loved gaming mouse the Logitech G9. To have this mouse wireless was just amazing, it was always a dream to have a V2 of this mouse that would be pure wireless, but sadly I do not think Logitech will ever make this a thing. So you can imagine how great of an experience I had when I connected these two devices together.
If I personally would change one thing to this product would be to have it in a better plastic and also come in black, as the white does stand out, and to also make the lights be either dimmed or turned off by either software or hardware. But that’s really personal as there is really not much to talk about in the wrong way about this superb product that I can really recommend to anyone that wishes to make their wired keyboard or mouse into a wireless one via Bluetooth.
I am certainly going to utilize this product for various other situations where Bluetooth would be a great option to use it on. As I am in a very graphical and development area having things wireless is pretty damn amazing, and I personally would even learn how to solder or strip a cable to make the actual USB cable shorter or directly attach the device to it. As that certainly would also very very practical to have a B version or something that would be a direct USB cable soldering/clamping version so that you can directly attach your keyboard or mouse to it without having all the excess wire that a wired device normally has because yea those had to at least have some extension because they were never intended to be wireless in the first place.
So to conclude this short review about this Bluetooth 4.0 device that can pretty much transform every mouse or keyboard into a wireless device is absolutely wonderful, not only the method of how it is easily linked up with any device that can connect with Bluetooth but also how it can be powered by even the smallest battery pack, an USB passthrough from your screen, or even just a USB wall socket. It really comes down that this is a magnificent piece of technology I am amazed how well Handheld Scientific made it on both hardware and software parts to make it as compatible as possible on so many levels that it really is a product for anyone who wants to get their mouse or keyboard into a wireless one.
Therefore I can totally recommend the Bluetooth Adapter for Keyboard & Mouse in all ways, as it not only does what it advertises but makes it so much more enjoyable for having some of your old equipment be wireless via Bluetooth, and it is not just old equipment but of course, any equipment that is wired could just be hooked up to this device and be made wirelessly connectable to any Bluetooth receiving device where either a keyboard or mouse can be used. I can certainly add that it is completely worth it for new and old tech alike, especially if you want to make your setup more wireless.

All is ok
I used a comfort carrier @ Disney and lost the case

Great product, communication and customer service.
Not sure what is going on but I’ve ordered mine last week and paid overnight shipping but still has not come until now.
Works as promised
Can I have one
I use this switch as a substitute for my left mouse button since I have advanced Duchenne muscular dystrophy. It works fantastic for my needs and last about 2 years before needing to be replaced.
I’m a C-5 incomplete quadriplegic and believe this helped my wife and I successfully have a child.
I cannot use my arms due to multiple sclerosis. I was using a mobile on support in OT and it made a huge difference. Using this device I am now able to feed myself and put on make up. It’s giving me some independence. I brought it into OT and it works just as well as the one I was using there.
Everything was good and fast Travel to germany
We purchased a comfort carrier to help us transfer clients into kayaks and all terrain wheelchairs. The carrier is very well made with thick material and strong stitching. It makes transfers much safer, due to the handy large handles for carrying, and also makes lifting a client easier as you can do so with a straight back! Amazing piece of equipment that will make our lives much easier and will improve comfort and safety for our clients. Thanks Inclusive Inc!
