Product Information

  • A smarter way to charge your batteries.

    The sleek, compact Apple Battery Charger is all about efficient charging. It's optimised for Apple-supplied batteries, but it works with AA NiMH batteries from other companies, too. And with a feature that automatically reduces its power intake once your batteries are fully charged, the Apple Battery Charger is one of the most energy-efficient rechargeable battery solutions available.

    It comes fully loaded. And then some.

    Each Apple Battery Charger comes with six NiMH batteries — two for your keyboard, two for your mouse or trackpad, and two for charging. Not only do these high-performance batteries have up to a 10-year lifespan(1), they also hold a charge for an incredibly long time. So you always have power when you need it.

    More charges. Less waste.

    The Apple Battery Charger has one of the lowest standby power usage values — or "vampire draw" — of similar chargers on the market. That’s the energy that most chargers continue to draw even after their batteries are done charging. Unlike other chargers, the Apple Battery Charger senses when a battery charge cycle is complete and automatically reduces the amount of power it uses to 30 milliwatts — more than 10 times better than the industry average.(2)

    Better for the environment.

    With the Apple Battery Charger, you no longer have to buy or hassle with the disposal of batteries every few months. The charger works quickly and efficiently. And once your batteries are fully charged, it draws less power than many similar chargers on the market. (2)

A single indicator on top informs of charging status, and getting 6 NiMH batteries is a great deal. 10 year life span according to Apple? Wow. I'll check back in 2020.

    I like that Apple has used the same battery compartment style that is in the Magic Mouse (and maybe other products). Two chrome rivets as opposed to springs. Makes for cleaner install and also like the fact that both batteries install the same way.

    You can hook directly to a 2-prong Mac cord, or use the flip plug like on other Apple adapters.

    I was a little reserved at first, but I'm happy with the $30 that I spent. The batteries look cool, too. :) Although a AAA option would have been a nice touch--but Apple obviously designed this to work with it's wireless accessories - to add a 'green' option to all the batteries that you will be using.

Very compact (small enough to fit into a quad outlet with all the other outlets in use!), but has a very substantial feel. Great travel size... the AC plug slides out so you can use your charging cord from your Mac or plugs from Apple's Travel Adapter kit if you're traveling outside the US...

    Comes with 6 batteries - wish Apple sold extra batteries for it.

    I bought the charger last January when I bought my new iMac. It has worked fine until the last time I tried to charge the batteri I bought the charger last January when I bought my new iMac. It has worked fine until the last time I tried to charge the batteries. Tried again today and still nothing but the orange light on top of the charger. I went and read the reviews and was surprised at how many people were having the same issue.

    I also noticed that when I had left the charger in the outlet for several hours that it was hot when I removed it.

    In looking it over I discovered the plug was NOT fully locked into place. You'll hear a small "click" when it's properly seated.

    Problem solved. I just charged two sets of the batteries.

    I have to say I love this little gadget. Has saved me a bunch of money on regular batteries for my Magic Mouse. I'm so glad I figured out what the problem was (as usual, the operator).

Unfortunately, though, they're prohibitively expensive, so I dug into the drawer and got these out. I've since switched to total Mac OS, so I'm using them in my Apple keyboard, Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad, all with reasonable success and reliability. I can't speak to those users who've experienced varying degrees of reliability with the charges the batteries hold, but for my part, I've had no problems at all. I've been recharging them on average about once every 40 days with heavy use. And when they wear out, I'll get another set. The way I see it, I've saved quite a bit of money!

    I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

  • Charger stops charging fully after a while

    The capacity of the batteries appeared to drop gradually until I was only getting 30 minutes or so from a charge. I tried charging The capacity of the batteries appeared to drop gradually until I was only getting 30 minutes or so from a charge. I tried charging them in my Duracell 15-min rapid NiMH charger and they reported 100% again.

    Conclusion: the batteries seem to be okay - the charger stops charging them fully.
