Terrific Idea but...
I purchased this product to kiss batteries goodbye and help the environment.
Unfortunately, the battery insert didn't fit my I purchased this product to kiss batteries goodbye and help the environment.
Unfortunately, the battery insert didn't fit my apple wireless keyboard well enough to make contact. That's right, this product from Switzerland has such serious quality control problems that yours may not work at all.
Additionally, the product has a strong chemical smell when removed from the box. This comes from the sparkly aluminum surface intended to match Apple's. But Apple's has no smell at all while this exudes a chemical-like stench. I expect it to vanish once the product airs for a week or so, but since my Magic Bar was defective and had to be returned I may never know.
I would also like to know where and how to get a hold of more recharge inserts. And where is the Magic Bar for trackpads? There's too little info on this product.
A great concept that became a smelly clunker. Mobee, get me a hassle-free replacement now please. …

Doesn't work well
I had a similar problem to others that have bought this device. I thought it was going to be a great addition to my workspace, bu I had a similar problem to others that have bought this device. I thought it was going to be a great addition to my workspace, but the battery attachment does NOT fit well in my keyboard or magic trackpad and it loses contact or doesn't make contact at all. Save yourself the money and just buy rechargeable batteries separately. …

Good product but not perfect
This is a really good and functional product and I was really excited to be able to drop using batteries altogether with my wirele This is a really good and functional product and I was really excited to be able to drop using batteries altogether with my wireless keyboard and trackpad. It really does live up to what it promises and is a good product.
Unfortunately this product only comes with one chargeable battery. Most people I would asume, use both a keyboard and a mouse/trackpad. I would definitely buy an extra battery if there was such a product!
Now I have the Mobee battery in my keyboard and my trackpad runs on aa-batteries. Buying another whole Magic Bar set just to get another battery pack doesn't seem like a viable option. …

Battery pack poorly designed
I was disappointed more in myself in that I read these reviews and thought Mobee can't possibly have designed the battery pack to I was disappointed more in myself in that I read these reviews and thought Mobee can't possibly have designed the battery pack to be too short. Well I bought one of these from the Apple Store and guess what... that battery pack is too short. I have a current Apple BT keyboard that accepts two AA batteries and the Mobee battery pack does not make contact.
The concept is brilliant. I have the Mobee Magic Mouse charger and it works great. I just cannot believe Mobee has so poorly designed this product. Why don't they just make the battery pack the same length of two AA batteries so it fits? …

Don't buy it if you have the 3-battery bluetooth keyboard
IT DOESN'T FIT. Not only is the battery pack only 2 cells long, it does not lock shut into the keyboard.

Why this should be disconnected & what is better
1. Buy the Apple rechargeable battery charger kit which includes 6aa NiMH batteries for 29.99CAD. You then have batteries for the 1. Buy the Apple rechargeable battery charger kit which includes 6aa NiMH batteries for 29.99CAD. You then have batteries for the keyboard, mouse and trackpad... The batteries charge in same amount of time, they will provide much longer run time, they can be charged many more times, and they will stay charged longer even if the devices are not in use (time between charges is months).
2. This product costs twice as much, yet only includes 2 batteries.. Also the batteries are NiCD - which are out-dated, they perform horribly, they lose charge in less than a week just sitting around even when not inserted in a device, at best when fully charged you get 6 hours runtime... Seriously? Discontinue this product please. …
