Just sitting here in bed, using my Eve V, and decided I needed to put the Eve Sleeve (love how that sounds) under the Eve to give it some stability. This made me thinking “Hmm… folio cases” and now I’m on the prowl looking for a solution.
On Mozo’s website (the makers of our lovely Eve Sleeves), they have an amazing looking folio case for the Surface 3/4 (https://mozoaccessories.com/product/black-golf-surface-pro34-folio/) and I’m wondering if such a thing exists for our Eve Vs.
Has anyone found a good folio case that they’d recommend? Does anyone have the Mozo case above, and does it fit the Eve V? Any other ideas?
Mske the folio case to your specific needs.
Have you done this? Is there a guide?
The mozo folio case should fit because of the nearly same measurements of SP3/4 and the V…
But! Think about heat problems with the folio case covering the back of the V… The V needs his back to dissipate the heat…
I’ve had the Fintie Keyboard ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072153185/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) with the flap SP connector trimmed off and paired with a Moko Folio ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017129RHQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) for about 6 months. I actually use it as desktop, laptop, tablet, etc. and it seems to work fine. I’ve had to install some custom scripts to get Windows edge gestures disabled, but other than some config is running fine on the Eve V i7 512GBs.
I’d like to know if you ended up finding something. I have an Eve on the way and would like to have a folio type case for stability when using on my lap. The link to the Mozo case doesn’t work, and it looks like they don’t make any folio cases anymore.
Do you have any photos of that setup?
I’m now considering getting a Brydge 12.3 keyboard based on positive reviews elsewhere in the community… This should solve my problem, although it will make the setup a tad thicker…
I was thinking the same actually, although I did find some cheapo Surface Pro folios on Amazon that might work as well.
Update: I ordered the Brydge 12.3 in black, which is for some reason $20 more expensive than the silver version but I really wanted it to match the Eve. I’m going to create a new post to share my impressions.
Thank you. Looking forward to it. Personally, I’m waiting for some kind of discount code.
As a heads up to anyone, I would not recommend the FINTIE Case (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Fintie-Case-12-3-Microsoft-Surface-ZZ-Grey/dp/B07VR965L7/ref=sr_1_9?dchild=1&keywords=surface+pro+3+cover&qid=1591478849&sr=8-9). The quality of the case is top notch but the magnets interfere with the keyboard. If anyone has any recommendations for the UK/EU please let me know!
That doesn’t look too bad actually. How does it interfere with the keyboard?
Also at this point, the best recommendation is to start looking for a new laptop. I’m considering the Dell XPS 13 2020.
The magnets that help keep the folio case closed interfere with the magnets/magnetic sensor on the device that are used to power off the keyboard ones the keyboard folded up against the screen . May have to try and remove the magnets from the case as all of the cases I could find have magnets to keep them closed.
I only just bought me V so am unlikely to upgrade anytime soon - although the XPS is a great laptop.
