    Manufacturing fault - shows up in about 6 months.

    • Written by from Gosport

    The unit works well but has a manufacturing fault in that the battery & base plate extend over the black running bars and now after 6 months has resulted in a scraping & wear to baseplate. Mobee are aware of this and have replaced the battery/base plate but this has the same issue. They are working on a fix for this. Shame as a good idea.

    waste of money!!!!!

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    It sounds great and looks great but it does not work. It is the most frustrating product I have ever bought from Apple.

    Every few minutes it loses the connection to the computer and it never gets fully charged no matter how long I leave it on the charging station. I wished I returned it.

    Don't make the same mistake I did. Does not work as promised and you will lose valuable work time reconnecting the mouse over and over again.

    I have issues with this product on two fronts. First of all, the battery won't hold it's charge. With just a few months of use I find if I charge the mouse overnight to 100%, it will be down to 75% within a couple of hours of use. Usually, by the end of each day I am getting the pop up warning of low battery charge on the mouse. It's not like I am using the computer all day long so this is really just unacceptable.

    The other, most irritating issue is bluetooth connectivity. From the onset, I have had problems with the mouse loosing its bluetooth connection. It happens frequently and, commonly, in threes. By that I mean the mouse will lose connection three times in a row before it will start working again. If I'm lucky, it will behave for an hour or so but sometimes I fight with the mouse continually. Sadly, it seems to be getting worse so I think this Mobee charger is not long for this world.

    Not a quality product.

    CAUTION: Disconnection Issues, returned to rechargeable batteries

    • Written by from O Fallon

    After about a month of use, the Mobee Magic Charger began to cause issues with Bluetooth connectivity. After searching through the Apple forums and trying all the solutions to keep my Magic Mouse connected, and none of them fixing the issue while continuing to use Mobee, I simply took the Mobee battery pack off the mouse and returned to using rechargeable batteries, and have had no issues with connectivity since. Perhaps this is a glitch with my particular unit (given all the glowing reviews here) but regardless, if it's an issue for one, it's probably an issue for many. Proceed with this caution in mind.

    A bit disappointed!

    • Written by from Longueuil

    I think it had never charge to 100%. I used it 3 times, and now, after a night of charge, it's only at 80%... A bit disappointed!

    Wow - Awesome!

    • Written by from Rocky River

    Ok.. some other reviews made me nervous.. but WOW!!! It's awesome.. works great... smooth... quieter slide than apples battery enclosure cover too. Charges likety split.. right out of the box. Lasted my whole day plus.. And I work baby! It's a bit faster and more responsive too. The platform that you just set your mouse down on is sleek and gorgeous just like an Apple product. Now.. no more batteries... always charged.. always great! Thank you Mobee!!!! MAGIC charger for the MAGIC mouse!

    Mobee Magic Charger Stopped Working Properly

    • Written by from Beverly Hills

    Hello everyone,

    I recently noticed that my Magic Mouse was "ghosting" and not providing the pinpointed accuracy I was used to. I took out my Mobee Magic Charger battery and replaced it with some standard AA batteries. So far I have seen a dramatic improvement in the response from the mouse. I'm wondering why Apple keeps a product like this in their inventory when there are so many bad reviews.

    What is all the fuss about

    • Written by from TRURO

    I have had one of these for I suppose two years - I very rarely have it drop out certainly no more than the regular mouse I use in the office.
    It charges quickly - when it does run out a few minutes on the charger will allow more use and then all I have to do is plonk it onto the charger in-between use, pick up when i need it, put it back when not actually using the mouse.
    Certainly can leave mouse switched on to charge - I never turn the mouse off
    No problems with the "flimsy" back - why do you need to take it off in any case?
    Lasts several days.
    Excellent - the only thing I would agree with is the battery level indicator -

    Day one review

    • Written by from Grove City

    I like the idea of not having to change/charge the batteries! That is the only reason that I bought this, to make life just a tad bit easier. There is only one concern. The battery pack doesn't sit completely flush in the mouse. I can see rub marks on the aluminum battery pack from my desk. It is almost like it is bowed out just a bit because it is such a tight fit. Other than that day one is great.

    I was disappointed in this product. My experience was that the mouse continually lost connection with my iMac when I used this charging system. I tried for several days to make it work but finally gave up in frustration. Fortunately, I kept my original battery back plate and was able to return to my previous AA battery system which, by the way, works just fine. I would not recommend this product.

    poorly designed product

    • Written by from Oxford

    The battery pack didn't fit into place well in my mouse. The metal tab snapped. Charging slow, sometimes weirdly didn't charge at all.

    Poor battery life

    • Written by from Breda

    In the beginning this product seemed to work "okay"; I had to charge it like once a week orso, with an activity of max 4 hours a day. But nowadays I have to charge the battery every day and sometimes twice a day. It just drains a whole lot and it seems to be getting worse. Too bad because I thought it was a nice product. At least better than changing batteries all the time

    Works as Promised

    Very happy with this product. Have been using for the past year without issue. I have paired it with the a Logitech Solar keyboard and I never have to worry about batteries anymore. Lovely.

    Plastic Can Break

    • Written by from RADSTOCK

    Wanted to add a 2015 review. I've had one of these Mobee units since they came out. Apart from the base rubbing sightly on the desk (see below), it has always worked well. Never once has it lost connection! It lasts several days of heavy use - I charge it less than once a week overnight (Mac in sleep mode)!

    Yes, the battery level on the menu bar seems hit or miss, but after reading (on here) that I need to pop the battery out after charging to reset the level, it's fine (6% jumped to 95%)!

    And, ironically, as my cousin (150 miles away) and I both found out on the same day, the battery compartment - or, sled - is plastic! I noticed by chance, and he broke his! It has to be plastic though, as it is charged inductively! Metal will shield this process. Try putting some thin tin foil between the charger and mouse!!!

    Hence (from above) why there is a slight rubbing... The plastic 'sled' is thicker than the wafer thin original aluminium base! The mouse still slides around my desk with minimal effort! NOTE: Both my cousin and I were thinking of cutting off the battery compartment (off the sled), machining some slots in the original base (to allow the inductive charging to work), and glueing the two parts together - for a better fit! We both have way too much free time!!! :-)))

    Nice concept but lacks quality

    • Written by from Belfast

    I have had the Mobee Charger for just over a year now. The biggest issue is the battery pack fit. I have to put paper inside the mouse to stop the connection dropping all the time. Not something you would expect to do considering the price. The outside area of the battery pack is starting to turn a strange pinky, white color - I looks as if it is melting or burning. However the concept of how the charger works and the way it looks has been well designed its just a shame about the quality and not to mention I am wondering about whether it is safe to continue using the charger.

    I'll take the Apple rechargeable battery pack.

    • Written by from Baltimore

    I've been a long-time fan of the Apple rechargeable battery pack having at least three of these. But I got suckered into a slick new technology that seemed simple and foolproof enough...I was only partially right. The device is nicely constructed to match the Magic Mouse. It comes with the charging pad and a battery pack/cover that replaces the corresponding Apple parts. But from there on , it's been downhill for me.

    My two biggest complaints are centered around the very reason one would purchase the Magic Charger. The batteries do not hold a charge despite being on the charging pad overnight. It will drain up to 50% of it's charge in less than a day. Seems excessive... Second, it loses the connection to the Mac on a regular basis as I'm working. This is REALLY annoying! Right now I've replaced the Mobee batteries with some off-the-shelf EverReady Lithium batteries. So far no disconnection, so I've pretty much ruled out everything but the Mobee batteries. Don't expect me to figure out why, I'm just interested in the results.

    Finally available through Apple!

    • Written by from Duarte

    I've had this for a few years. It does exactly as it says it does. I see a lot of bad reviews from misguided people on here though. People seem to think buying (and throwing away) $20 of batteries every couple months is somehow better than recharging your mouse every two days. You literally set the mouse on top of the charger overnight (or whenever) and that's it! People find that troubling?? Well, what I find troubling, is wasting batteries when you don't have too! Anyway, yes, it would be great if it stayed charged for a year, but this is literally the most convenient charging system I've ever encountered. I really like this machine, and will continue to use as long as they make them.

    It's a good product

    • Written by from Orange

    I've had my product for a week now and I can't really complain. It does what it's suppose to do. The only thing I've noticed after a week that the underside of my mouse is tarnished. Mobee obviously doesn't use the same metal/materials that Apple uses. Because the original underside of the mouse (Apple product) never tarnished but Mobee does.

    Stops working almost straight away

    • Written by from New York

    Great idea - terrible execution.
    Manufacturing is of such poor quality that the unit stops working after a week max. The battery unit that you slot into your mac magic mouse doesn't stay in place and eventually breaks off, making it useless. Don't buy.
