    I've found it works best with 1.5v alkaline batteries or the 1.7v lithium batteries. You can also technically use 1.2v rechargeable batteries but the computer will often say the batteries are low, because the voltage on AA rechargeables are lower. It's pretty annoying, especially if you have the bluetooth menu activated because it blinks nonstop.

  • The new Magic Mouse will run on either 1 or 2 AA batteries.

    I have used Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries, Eneloop ni-mh rechargeable batteries, and cheap alkaline batteries in mine, but I do not recommend relying on the cheap alkaline batteries because they tend to leak sooner or later.

    It will not run on lithium ION batteries, however - without a custom battery pack with electronics to make things work, lithium-ion batteries typically put out around 3.7 volts. If you found one of the same size as a AA, it would probably fry the Magic Mouse.
