Yes, this happened to me so I was basically forced to purchase the Magic Keyboard which has lightning charging capabilities just like an apple iphone or ipad. So much better then the first generation wireless keyboard that used batteries. Here is a link to the magic keyboard - chargeable. https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MLA22LL/A/magic-keyboard-us-english?fnode=9d&fs=f%3Dkeyboard%26fh%3D40a2%252B4603

Here is one with the number-pad but more expensive - https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MQ052LL/A/magic-keyboard-with-numeric-keypad-us-english?fnode=9d&fs=f%3Dkeyboard%26fh%3D40a2%252B4603

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
