    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.

    Flawed design but still useful

    • Written by from Rothley

    I have used this for almost a year now. I experienced the same initial problem as others have expressed in that the battery pack did not fit correctly. Mine required some modification before it made a suitable connection to power the mouse.

    I also have seen the issue about not reporting correct battery level. The documentation does explain that the level will not reach 100% (completely understandable, different cell chemistry), but I did not find any explanation that you need to switch the mouse off during/after recharging to ensure the correct level is reported back to the O/S.

    I found both the above to be easily worked around, but they suggest a poor design not up to the typical apple standard.

    Don't put it on base of the iMac

    • Written by from OXFORD

    A good product but weeks of frustration (thinking my device had suddenly failed) could have been avoided if the manufacturers/vendors had highlighted in BIG LETTERS that you MUST NOT put the charging unit on the base plate of the iMac (ie just under the screen). Because if you do, it will NOT CHARGE.

    Doesn't last long enough

    • Written by from Kingston Upon Thames

    If you don't charge the mouse every time your not using it, the battery will run out in one or two days. Also the battery level indicator is not very accurate. Generally, it goes from around a 100% to 40% and then to 6% at which point you have minutes before the battery will run out. Also make sure you turn the mouse of before you charge it or it doesn't charge. The battery level will remain at the same level.
