Hi,

I'm looking for an Ipad keyboard.

There are so many types on the market, so I'd like your input.

This it should do:

*direct connection, no wifi, bluetooth or other (not sure if it is possible)
*I want to avoid to need to load a keyboard battery, it should take its power from the Ipad (possible?)
*keyboard with Ipad should behave as one piece (it should "click" in the ipad), like a laptop, f.e. you use it in the car, in the coach
*keyboard will be used to work on all day long so it should have a good ergonomy (hands that can rest on it) -some keyboard or small gadetlike but clumsy to type on-

Please advise.
J.

You're simply just not going to find what your looking for.  Something that is attached to the iPad that is wired and draws it's power from the iPad is too custom of an item.  This is the closest alternative.

I looked at these before but I like my original suggestion because it is so small

But check them out
