No problem pairing them?
Pairing was a bit tricky but I was able to pair them both successfully.

Finally got it working, on and off ,on and off, clicking pair button then got it to pair with my samsung tab, in fact using the keyboard right now...

I found the keys much too mushy for fast typing. I have to use only my pointer fingers and use more force than I'd like to ensure the key is pressed. Will be using it as a stocking stuffer haha.

None at Quarry Park Dollarama, Calgary. I did find about 2 dozen Xbox One Titanfall games though... (no PS4)

Damn I'm not close to that location today. Argh. Missed this the first time. If any nice rfder picks up an extra and would sell it at cost, I would be forever grateful.

I purchased 2 of these keyboards, and the charging ports on both of them broke instantly when I tried inserting the provided micro-usb cables. It was cold outside and I'm not sure if that made the PCB brittle.

I took them to another nearby Dollarama location, and showed them the issue and my receipt. The manager let me exchange them for another 2 (after I checked they were okay).
What the hell? Do you live in CandyLand and ride your Unicorn back to Dollarama?

I even mention "defective", "return" or "exchange" at any Dollarama in the real world and I get screamed at with "YOU NO READ - NO RETURNS!!" and get pointed to the door with an obvious GTFO. It's like shopping in a third-world bazaar. I spent $32 on defective 3rd-party Inwood/Rock Candy phone batteries/plugs (that after opening, realized had been sitting in a warehouse for 5 years) and got totally hosed by these scam artists.

And then I email Dollarama HQ and get told the same basic thing, and to STFU about it online - then they contact RFD and closed my thread.

My exact comments from Dollarama HQ in reply to my inquiry about getting jacked for $32 in junk:

"Thank you for your input and I have passed this along to our product buying team. I am sure this will help us."

WTF? Where's my $32 biotch? (I said this in a much nicer way)

"I apologize, but we do not offer returns or exchanges and this is clearly spelled out in each of our stores. Thank you."

Anyone in 2019 who continues to buy electronic or rechargeable devices at Dollarama does not understand the value of $4 or the fact that Dollarama is a scam operation designed to get money in exchange for old and defective junk.

Where did you buy them ? I checked 3 locations in my area and neither had them.
