    Simple and great

    • Written by from London

    This battery charger and batteries are very simple. i like it but i only have one problem with it. i find myself every week or so cycling through the batteries on my track pad. i know its not the track pad because regular batteries last about a month. but they come with 6 batteries and they are rechargeable so its still a good deal.

    Good Charger, But Where is the 4 Battery Unit?

    • Written by from DES MOINES

    I have two of these from various apple products at work and they have worked without issue. The only problem I have is that Apple only makes a two battery version. Why is there not a four battery or three battery version, since some things take three batteries like the keyboard I'm typing on right now.

    Other than that, I get several months of use out of a charge for my mouse and keyboard with 5x8 use per week. So I'm happy with the battery performance.

    Keep electrodes clean

    • Written by from Glendale

    Today after observing blinking amber, I took an old tooth brush and scrubbed the electrodes. The device worked well after that.

    Worth The Money

    • Written by from Thornton

    I bought the Apple Battery Charger a few months ago and have been very pleased with the performance.

    I use the batteries in my Magic Pad and Magic Mouse and the charge lasts a good 3 -4 weeks before needing a charge. I use my Magic Mouse with my MacBook Pro on a daily basis and I am truly surprised at the length of time between charges.

    The only issue I have is that the Apple does not see the batteries separately. Reading the Questions & Answers for the product, any good quality NiMH rechargeable batteries will work. Instead of wasting money with trial and error, I purchased a second Battery Charger. Glad I did as I now have at least 8 batteries always ready to use.

    A great use for anyone

    • Written by from GOLDEN

    When it comes to needing batteries for your Apple wireless devices, or even any device that requires some AA batteries, the Apple rechargeable batteries are your friend. Their long lasting battery life, and quick recharge abilities truly help you when you need batteries. They also help you to keep from having to purchase AA batteries. This is definitely a great buy for Apple users.

    cool little charger

    • Written by from Warner Robins

    I go way back with rechargeable batteries and have had mixed results with them. One thing i have learned is that they "remember everything" and you only get one chance to abuse them. With that i mean don't discharge them fully or they may reverse polarity, don't short circuit put them in some device which draws more current than they are designed for and under no circumstances leave them on charge forever because while the manufacturers intend this practice to "maintain" charge, what it in the ends up doing is shortening the lifespan. A rechargeable NMH or Li will show aslight "peak" in voltage just prior to (under a given discharge rate) it's beginning to fall off, for the most part this occurs around 30% or .8VDC (assuming a 1.25V cell) if you plot the terminal voltage verses remaining charge current. What this means is that if you recharge these little things whenever convenient, somewhere between 25 and 35% ond only until the indicator has chaged from amber to green (don't wait for it to turn off) these should last for many, many, many cycles. I hope this helps.

    Very Compact & Brilliant

    It is very compact. It is less in weight when compare to other rechargeable batteries. Charges in 5-6 hrs.

    Compact Charger

    • Written by from Bloomington

    This charger works with two 1.2V AA batteries. It is elegant and compact, the plug slides off to connect to a travel adapter or cord from a laptop charger. Easy to carry in a laptop bag. It is all color coordinated with your other Apple products. The amber light flashes if there is an error; the batteries have to be seated perfectly in the charger or the light will flash. This is the only drawback. It is far superior to other AA chargers I have purchased in the past.

    Works as described.

    • Written by from Fort worth

    You do not have to use the batteries in only Apple products. They are work perfectly fine in my non-Apple branded computer mice and they keep a charge for quite a while. Compared to other AA batter charger packaged deals, this one is actually quite competitive in price. It serves its function well, so I recommend this product.

    Apple Battery Charger

    • Written by from METFORD

    I purchased the Apple battery charger to power my Apple trackpad, Apple wireless mouse & Apple wireless keyboard, I am delighted with the performance, charges quickly & does not get overly warm also batteries once charged & stored hold their charge. Another great product from Apple.

    Awesome Charger, but bad batteries

    • Written by from St Lucia

    I can recognise all my problems when I read the worst review here, since I bought new batteries, they are 100% charged and last very long!
    The batteries included can be very bad.... the charger itself is awesome.

    This small sized charger is what I had been searching for so long (really) but when I bought it I had very short life batteries, and never charged more than 70%.

    Not a full charge but good enough

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    I understand that people have been complaining about not getting a full charge out of these batteries. Understandable. When I charged them I got about 80% of a full charge. Also they seem to discharge fairly quickly (Lost 5% of a charge in half a day). We'll see how they last over time, but they are good enough for now, considering I can recharge them and don't have to throw them away.

    Great battery charger

    • Written by from waterford

    The Apple battery charger is magnificent for a number of reasons :
    1. It's small and very easily portable
    2. The Batteries it comes with have a 10 year lifespan -double the industry standard!
    3.It comes with 6 batteries, while most battery chargers will only come with 4 AA batteries.
    4. The packaging is minimal - great for the environment and make the box smaller.
    5. The battery compartment is magnetic- prevents batteries from slipping out if they're not completely in the charger.
    6. It can charge one battery if you only need to charge one battery- most battery chargers will only charge pairs of batteries together.

    The only problem is that it only charges AA batteries. I wish Apple made an adapter so that the Apple Battery charger could be used to charge AAA batteries.

    New charger

    • Written by from Greenford

    Bought the charger today, fitted in two of the batteries to charge, amber light kept flashing to say something is wrong..... great start!! tried again and again and eventually the light stayed amber.. same thing happened with the remaining four batteries amber light flash's to indicate a fault, anyway fitted two in my keyboard and two in the mouse the remaining two will be for the magic trackpad.

    Keyboard shows 89% charge mouse shows 86% now just have to wait and see how long they last, at least I won't have to buy some more AA's for a while...

    Simple, compact, and fairly priced

    • Written by from Moraga

    The purchase price should include eight, rather than six, rechargeable batteries.

    It is a compact charger and could use a carrying case which would cost a few mere dimes maximum.

    Hence, FOUR stars.

    Beautiful compact design

    • Written by from Chester

    The first thing that strikes you is the beautiful compact design of the Apple Charger unlike other cumbersome chargers on general sale.

    One reviewer had a slight grumble about the price but having priced other chargers and packs of batteries, thought it a fair price as it will pay for itself fairly quickly. Especially, when considering the cost of replacing non-rechargeable batteries over time.

    It was easy to put the component sections together and sits neatly in the wall socket. Dad was impressed with its overall design and quality of build, liked the fact there are no springs in the battery section as usually found in chargers.

    As a newcomer to Apple having just bought an iMac have not had a chance to really test the durability of battery charge but like any rechargeable product this takes a few recharges to kick in properly.

    I would recommend this product to others, especially if space is an issue.

    Not bad, not great

    • Written by from East Melbourne

    My magic mouse was chewing through the batteries so decided to get the apple charger.
    Bad: Battery charge surprisingly short.
    Good: Comes with 6 batteries so its easy to rotate through four, with two untouched.
    While its annoying to be continually swapping out batteries, with six supplied you'll never run out.
    Charger is a nice little design object also.
