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

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. …

Don't buy this product!
I've had Apple send me out two products, because I returned the first one. Now I'm returning the second one. At first I thought th I've had Apple send me out two products, because I returned the first one. Now I'm returning the second one. At first I thought the problem was that the first product was faulty because it didn't charge. However after getting the second product (from a different batch), I've noticed the product isn't faulty. It's the fact the battery pack DOESN'T FIT MY APPLE KEYBOARD. I have a standard Apple wireless keyboard. But after the second product I've come to the conclusion that the battery pack is not connecting to the terminal inside my keyboard - hence as to why this product doesn't charge.
I'm very disappointed as I thought this product was a great idea! Getting a refund from Apple. …

Not a great product
Personally I haven't had a good experience with the product, I appreciate that rechargeable batteries don't tend to last as long a Personally I haven't had a good experience with the product, I appreciate that rechargeable batteries don't tend to last as long as conventional but the wireless rechargeable battery that comes with the Mobee Magic Bar doesn't even compete with my normal rechargeable batteries. My normal rechargeable batteries last for a few weeks while I can't seem to make this last more than a few days and it's not heavily used as it's for my media centre and not a desktop that I use daily. …
