The keyboard offers ten levels of brightness for use from dim lighting to complete darkness.

Satechi built in a battery good for up to 600 hours of use, depending on backlight level. Then it can be recharged through a USB-C port.

When they say “compact” they mean 14.5 inches by 4.7  in. by 0.4 in., and 0.88 lbs. So, smaller than a regular desktop keyboard but not truly portable.

And there’s a set of macOS function shortcuts that let users pause/play media, switch applications, adjust brightness and more with a press of a button.

The Compact Backlit Bluetooth Keyboard is available now for $79.99.
