    I bought 2 of these units for our iMacs. The initial install was OK and the unit worked. The specs said that it works up to 6 da I bought 2 of these units for our iMacs. The initial install was OK and the unit worked. The specs said that it works up to 6 days without a recharge, so I decided to push it and see how long it goes. After 4 days, the Mac battery level was reading 9%, so I decided to charge it. The first overnight charge was OK, back to 100% and the light on the charger was solid green. The 2nd (and subsequent) charges worked, but the green flashing light did not go solid.

    My test was to turn off the mouse and let it charge. It worked and the green light went solid after a night charge. When the mouse is left on (on/off switch), then the charger thinks it's not fully charged and keeps flashing.

    A few things to remember:
    - The unit comes with a USB cable for charging, but no charger. They assume that you will use your Mac or laptop to charge it. If your Mac goes to sleep, the port goes dead and you can not charge the unit. You need an external power supply such as iPhone charger.
    - Rechargeable batteries are 1.25 volts rather than 1.5 volts of a AA battery, so your battery gauge on the Mac is inaccurate.
    - Since the unit uses electronics for charging, your battery is even smaller and has less of a lifetime than 2 AA rechargeables. I recommend charging every other night to be safe.

    Their tech support says that it's working the way it should, and if I turn off the mouse while charging, or take the battery back out and leave it on the charger by itself (their suggestion) the light goes to solid green but if I leave the mouse on, the light keeps flashing. I personally don't know anyone who turns off their mouse or takes the batteries out every night.

    I had my Mobee Charger since it was released (about 6-7 weeks). Initially, it worked great. It would charge without issues and my I had my Mobee Charger since it was released (about 6-7 weeks). Initially, it worked great. It would charge without issues and my Magic Mouse stayed connected. At about 4 weeks, I started having issues with the mouse disconnecting. This problem became more frequent until then it would not even charge correctly. I contacted Mobee and they agreed that I had a defective product. They promptly replaced it (kudos to them), and so far it has worked well for the past week or so. Let's hope I just got unlucky and that this replacement will continue to work well.

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'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 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.
