    Nice idea, not practical

    • Written by from Flitwick

    Got one of these and wasn't impressed, for starters the battery unit doesn't hold a lot of charge compared to regular rechargeable batteries but with that a side even keeping the battery unit doesn't stay in place. After the second time of taking the battery unit off my magic mouse the mechanism broke and now doesn't stay in. It would also be nice if the charger was QI compatible but it isn't.

    Overall I gave up using it.

    Great idea and Great product

    I have had this for a little over a month and love it. So easy to set up and use.

    The keyboard magic charger is awful, but the mouse works great!

    Excellent.

    I love this device.
    Has "Apple" written all over it, and is a fantastic add-on to the IMAC for instance.
    One thing I would say, is that the mouse will suffer the often posted issue with losing bluetooth as a result of the battery contacts sometimes not "contacting"
    It has been posted that if you insert sme tinfoil to act as a bridge between battery terminal and mouse contacts, this will cure the problemm, and I believe this to be the case.

    I had the issue, but now I don't, and not all people report it. Would stop me recommending it, I think its a cool device.

    Great

    I honestly do not know what is going on with these negative reviews. I've had mine for three months (I bought both the mouse and the charger at the same time) and have had no problems with it. Knock on wood.

    About a years use and it no longer works

    • Written by from Bradford

    Had one of these for about a year now, and the thing just will no longer power the Magic Mouse. It still charges but doesn't seem to output any power. Terrible build quality, the battery pack looks very worn out after a year of use.

    I was really impressed with this product at first but after about 4-5 months that's when problems started, frequent connectivity dropouts etc. I think I'll stick to buying a pack of batteries and keep them in my bag, at least then I'll never have to worry about the power dropping out again.

    Flawed product

    • Written by from Swindon

    Echoing so many of the other reviews here - I bought one of these (Apple store, Portland OR), and it worked great for about 10 days. Now, however, it won't charge (or at least, report a charge) beyond 3 or 4%, and I get constant "mouse battery low" notifications and random disconnections.
    As a concept, great. As an implementation - second rate. I expected better; don't Apple do basic quality screening on products they stock in their stores?

    Need improvement

    • Written by from Epping

    Other inductive charging solutions (for phones) magnetically locate the inductive coil in the phone, to the one in the charger pad. The magic charger really needs something like thing, as if the mouse if not aligned properly, it'll take significantly longer to charge.

    The reduced capacity of the batteries is an issue. Really you need to stick the mouse on the pad every night, and if you forget a couple of nights in the row, you're back to the AA's.

    Not impressed at all. Stay away.

    • Written by from Elmesthorpe

    Battery gives wrong indication of change. If you lift if off the mat it loses connection. Most infuriating of all it will not charge sitting on the pad. I have to take the battery pack out and put that on the charger without the mouse so it will charge! Useless.

    The charger that charges

    • Written by from SLOUGH

    I found the mobee magic charger charges very well that's all I found that was any good
    The product is ill fitting And it's rubbing away the metal casing because there Isn't enough clearance from the two black raised sections I took it back to apple store and they have replaced . With this one there's not much difference it's still sitting on the metal at the store they told me that the battery had expanded and that's why it's pushing it out but I think it's a very bad product and I wouldn't recommend it I will go back to the batteries fairly soon

    Gotta Keep It On The Pad

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Problem is, it discharges even while you're not using it. So you have to train yourself to put it on the pad when you're not using it. The charging pad, that is.

    Product suggestion: Make the charging pad larger and surfaced like a mouse pad. Then the mouse can stay on the pad even while in use.

    As long as we're wishing...: Embed an even larger charger into my wooden desk.

    This is so cool.

    Mixed results

    • Written by from Louisville

    I will not re-hash all the problems that others have with the never ending charge light blinking. My experience has for most part been positive until recently. The connector (uUSB) has started to fail and now requires a bit of manipulation to get power into the device. I'm just outside of the 1 year warranty so the manufacturer will not even discuss it.

    I enjoyed the convenience of not having to change batteries often but the product should last longer than 1 year, and if the company will not stand behind it then they don't have faith in what they are producing either.

    Absolutely does not work. Stay away this unit

    • Written by from Sausalito

    I gave it one star just because somehow you can't put 0.

    The saying goes like this:
    "there are liars, darn liars, god darn liars, and then there are battery engineers"
    The first battery pack lasted about 2 weeks. Mobee was kind enough to send a new battery pack. Once the pack was charged, the mouse only moved vertically. it won't move horizontally because I'm guessing this made in china product has not figured out that the pack does not sit right on the mouse thus movement is limited. Even when it moves, the mouse disconnect and reconnect at will. No its not my mouse issue. Once I put regular batteries it works like a charm.

    An absolute waste of money; Get a wired mouse or, if you still trust battery engineers, get a charger.

    Great....at first.....then....not so much

    • Written by from Brentwood

    I usually wait on reviews as a product may work great for the first little while - but what I am most interested in - is the long term viability for a product....and this one fails miserably..

    ok...so nothing lasts forever....everyone gets that....but i would expect this product to last at LEAST 2 years.....I've had mine for just a smidge over a year and now.....DEAD. Won't hold a decent charge - constantly losing connection and flashing the battery symbol in the bluetooth icon.

    i have a 5 year old blackberry that holds a better charge than this.

    Great device, but a pricey one for what it is

    • Written by from West New York

    I was in my local Apple Store last week, and saw this on the shelf so I decided to get it. Setting it up was easy enough, and it was charged up in about four hours. As previously mentioned, the one major glitch is that you never get a 100 percent reading, even when it's fully charged up; the best I've seen is 90 percent. I must have a later model, as mine came with a micro USB cable, instead of the mini USB one others had mentioned. I haven't had it long, but I think I'm going to keep it.

    I would recommend this to a friend with the caveat that it really does cost much more than it's worth, IMHO.

    Nice little addition

    • Written by from Brisbane

    Had this charger for a few days now. I really like it however the rechargeable battery for the mouse, after a days use (I'm a designer), is down to about 65%. Definitely needs to be charged every 2 days. But I think it's a great little device and when I'm done for the day I place the mouse on the charger and it's all good. Would highly recommend it.

    ** The rechargeable battery comes with the Magic Charger and it replaces the usual batteries you use.

    It frequently disconnects

    • Written by from San diego

    The product would be perfect if it worked well. It keeps disconecting all the time.
    And I'm having trouble to charge it. I never have 100% charged.

    buy a set of rechargeable batteries instead

    • Written by from Toronto

    initially it worked well but now constantly disconnects and won't re-connect unless turned on/off a few times.

    Pretty Useful Gadget

    • Written by from Yorktown

    I bought a Magic Mouse years ago when they first came out, but ended up rarely using it because I hate buying batteries. I recently purchased the Mobee charger and now I use my Magic Mouse daily! So far I've only charged the mouse ONCE and a month later it's still at almost 100% charge! Also, my son was playing with my Magic Mouse one day a couple years ago and bent the back panel so it didn't fit on properly. The "battery pack" for the Mobee replaced that ugly bent back panel :) The Mobee charger does exactly what it says it does- charges my mouse, keeps the charge, and the charging pad is very sleek and attractive and looks great and inconspicuous on my desk!
