    Money saver!

    • Written by from Sheridan

    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).

    Works great for what it is

    • Written by from West New York

    I initially bought the charger and batteries for use with my Apple Wireless Keyboard, and then forgot I had them and used Li-Ion batteries, which last forever! 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.

    Brilliant

    I have found the battery charger and batteries flawless. Have been using them for some time now. Batteries hold charge well. So much so that I have given these away as gifts and encouraged others to buy this set. Pretty much essential with a magic mouse and keyboard these days. Apple should include this with the iMac IMO. I have used a lot of rechargeable batteries in the past with mixed results, the batteries included are top quality.

    Awesome charger and neat.

    • Written by from Burbank

    This product is amazing. I think it is already factory charged so at first, it does not require a six hour standard charge. I really like the minimalistic design and the conveniency it gives. I really recommend this product if you look for a long term investment.

    I have had this product for a few weeks now and so far so good on the batteries and getting good life out of every charge. We will see what it is like in 6 months from now.

    Fantastic, little battery charger

    • Written by from Wentzville

    The Apple Battery Charger is a great, little device that allows the charging of the six included AA Rechargeable Batteries. It makes a perfect accessory for me, with an Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Trackpad. I can always put the charged batteries in when the other two drain. The batteries charge pretty quickly, and best of all, this charger is very small, portable, and has that classic Apple design that looks fantastic.

    Great Product - been using for over a year

    • Written by from Franklin

    First time I've ever rated a product, and I remember pouring over the reviews on this product before buying it, so I thought I'd contribute.

    I'm a heavy user of Apple rechargeable batteries. I use my Apple bluetooth keyboard and magic trackpad for a minimum of 8 hours every day (I'm a web developer and I work from home). This battery charger and the six batteries that come with it are the only batteries I've purchased in well over a year (huge savings right there). I remember there being some complaints that the battery status doesn't show 100% when you put the fully charged batteries in, but that's the norm with rechargeable batteries, and who cares? They're charged! It's not like they die a day later.

    In my experience a charge on these batteries lasts a good two weeks (with my heavy usage) and as soon as I get the "Your batteries are getting low" message from either my trackpad or keyboard I grab the charger (holding two of the batteries) off the outlet it's plugged in and do a swap. It takes about 10 seconds (I use one of the prongs on the battery to unscrew the battery compartment).

    So if you're on the fence, go ahead and get this product, especially if you have a bluetooth keyboard and trackpad. The six batteries and charger are the perfect pairing with the keyboard and trackpad (or mouse).

    Very convenient

    • Written by from Santa Monica

    I've been using these batteries for about 3.5 years on a computer I use full time. I've started to notice the interval between recharges has decreased from every couple of months to every couple of weeks so I plan to replace them soon. This package includes two extra batteries so I've never been without my mouse or keyboard. Nice simple design and very easy to use. Highly recommend.

    Excellent, compact, and long lasting.

    • Written by from COLUMBIA

    I've had 2 of these for several years now. I'm confused by the reviews that mention poor battery life, because this has not been my experience

    Since each comes with 6 batteries, I use one pair each in a wireless mouse, a trackpad, and the third pair kept in the charger. I would say each pair typically lasts for over 2 months between charges. The Mac Pro computer they are used with is kept on 24 hours a day.

    I use the second set to charge a pair for an Apple wireless keyboard I use with an iPad, a pair in a wireless transmitter for my onstage in-ear monitors, and again the third pair is kept in the charger. The keyboard lasts well over a month per charge. The in-ear transmitter is more power hungry, but I can typically use it for 2-3 gigs (about 4 hours each) before I need to swap out the batteries.

    With the batteries inserted in the charger its size is not much bigger than 4 batteries would be outside the charger. Small, convenient, and very reliable. I've recommended these to people several times, and everyone I know who has them is very satisfied.

    Excellent litttle product. But why is it not possible to buy extra batteries. I need extra but the only way to get them is to buy the whole unit again. Not good Apple.

    Simple, Cheaper and Reliable!

    • Written by from Elmwood Park

    I am writing this review because I saw many reviews that had low ratings and this has not been my experience. The charger is simple to use and does its job. In fact I have a set of 6 that are 3 years old right now and my wireless keyboard lasts a couple of months without the need for recharging. My magic mouse (without turning off like I should) will last anywhere from three weeks to a month with high usage. There have been people complaining about batteries lasting longer than 3 years (which mine have) however, 3 years is usually the maximum life you would get out of similar top selling bunny sponsored rechargeable battery brands, with the Apple batteries being a cheaper price even with including the mandatory charger. I have since bought 2 more charger/battery 6 packs to power all my remotes and flashlights around the house. It's been 9 months and I just turned a mag light on and it was still producing a full powered bright light. I just wish apple would make additional batteries available without having to buy more chargers but overall it's a great product!

    Apple Battery Charger

    • Written by from Branchport

    This thing deserves 5 stars across the board. I was buying batteries for my magic mouse constantly because they would be dead in a week and a half. I do a great deal of Photoshop work and on my iMac all day long constantly. I decided to buy this charger. Not only does it come with 6 batteries it holds the charge immensely! I am going on week 3 and still at 93% life left on my first charge! If this were those expensive batteries I have been buying I would be replacing weekly! Another note. I noticed store bought batteries are not really gauged correctly as far as life is concerned if you look to see how much life is left. One day it will say 90% and the next day it will say you have 5% left. This charger & batteries seems to gauge the life left correctly. I wish I had bought this sooner as I could have saved a great deal of $$$$..For $29.00 this was a great buy!!! Happy I bought it for sure!!!

    Great charger and batteries

    • Written by from Chichester

    Its such a small unit, its neat and unobtrusive so I don't mind leaving it in the wall socket. The batteries show 100% after a full charge, like others have mentioned leave the batteries till the green light goes off before you use them. Brilliant product what more can I say.

    Every owner of the magic mouse should have this!

    • Written by from CORDEAUX HEIGHTS

    I have had a magic mouse for over a year now, and i love it, but i also found it incredibly frustrating because it would disconnect randomly, only resolving if the batteries were taken out and put back in, or replaced entirely. I tried all the tricks foil, paper etc and it was also using a lot of batteries.

    Since purchasing the apple battery charger i have had no problems whatsoever!!!. I am extremely happy. These batteries also seem to last longer than the one use batteries.

    The design is sleek and I always have a pair of batteries ready when needed.

    It would however be great if apple offered packs of the rechargeable batteries alone, as i have many apple products and I have also used them as last resort in a game remote and was happy with the results there too.

    WAY better than energizers...

    • Written by from Woodland Hills

    I've been using Energizer rechargables and the thing I always noticed was that once they were charged, if you leave them on the charger it continues to over cook the batts, causing long term damage and shortened life. This apple charger is "smart", when they're charged, it shuts off! When you come back hours later, the batts are nice and cool.

    Thanks Apple!

    Good, shiny white and easy to use. It is well-priced as well as it comes with 6 Rechargeable batteries. I recommend it specially if you have a baby with many battery operated toys like the ones of V-Tech. :)

    Best buy ever for any battery

    • Written by from Virginia Beach

    I first tried the batteries about three years ago with a ton of use each and every day. The only issue i have is that i only have six batteries and one charger. I am a father of 3 kids that love to use flashlights, leap pads, trains, and a ton of other toys that take AA batteries. I just went out and bought two more packs so i have 18 batteries and three chargers. I try my best to stay GREEN and recycle just doing my part. The price of the batteries is a lot a first until you do some math. My kids can use around 12 batteries per week on all the stuff that they have. That would add up to over 600 batteries per year if i did not use rechargeable ones. The price of 4 batteries is around $4.00 so 600 batteries times $4.00 is around $600.00 per year. One pack of Apple rechargeable ones are just $29.00 and can last up to 10 years. The math is only facts and 100% real.

    clean and works as advertised

    • Written by from Saint Louis Park

    I use this charger with the 6 batteries it came with and am slowly adding other NiMH batteries as my devices need them. The charger works great with either and the Apple branded batteries outlast all others. I wish Apple sold expansion packs of batteries alone!
