    This product is a dog...I'm so disappointed in Apple promoting it

    • Written by from cary

    Advice...don't buy this product. Doesn't fit well on mouse..warps.

    If you buy this make sure you have another mouse to take over while you charge the unit. Otherwise, your MAC will freeze and/or need to be rebooted (losing your open files).

    This is a solve for an issue that is not significant. I run rechargeable batteries and always have a set charging...a better pathway.

    A must have!

    • Written by from Tampa

    I bought this about 3 months ago directly from Mobee. I have to say it is really nice not having to ever change batteries. I just set the mouse on the charging pad each night (although I could go as much as 6 or 7 days without charging) and never have to worry about batteries again! The only thing, and it's a minor annoyance, is that the battery pack that replaces the normal Apple battery compartment sometimes slides and dislodges, causing the mouse to 'disconnect' at times. However, this happens relatively infrequently and usually because the mouse has been lifted and set down too hard. Otherwise, though, this is a great investment.

    Battery pack does not fit!

    • Written by from Westcliff on Sea

    Having waited a week for delivery, I set up the new charger unit yesterday and replaced the batteries with the rechargebale pack.

    Getting it into the base of the mouse, I realised the fit was poor. It is!

    The mouse is unusable, as the battery pack is protruding from the base and also does not correctly fit around the on/off switch.

    It's going back to Apple. I am amazed this product has been allowed onto the market, if the machining tolerances can't be controlled.

    No problems after three months

    • Written by from Round Rock

    I bought the Mobee Charger for my Magic Mouse the end of April, and it is fabulous! I did have trouble getting it installed correctly in the beginning. It's a VERY tight fit, and if it's not completely flush it won't charge correctly. Once I got it installed correctly it runs like a dream, and the battery life is amazing!!! I had it off the charger, turned on for 10-12 hours a day for a four day stretch and the battery didn't die. I highly recemmend it!!

    Good for a while...

    • Written by from Chicago

    This thing will stop working after a while. After a few months, my connection was completely unreliable, making the computer frustrating to use. Switched back to batteries and never looked back.

    Tested for 6 months... Works Great

    • Written by from Hilliard

    I have had the Mobee Magic Charger for 6 months and it has worked great, under heavy use!

    The battery is a snug fit into the mouse, which by some reviews has intimated some. It's a little tough to take out frequently, but why would you need do that? Just put the mouse on the charger when not in use!

    I also see that some are confused by the lights on the charger. Red light means charger is idle, blinking green is charging, solid green is charged. It has nothing to do with connecting to your computer, the mighty mouse does that!

    I charge my mouse overnight, when the computer is sleeping. This is ideal for iMacs because the power supply is always plugged in.

    The idea of the quick and easy charge is so you can do that! If you are looking for a mouse that you need to charge once a month, this is not for you. It is meant to be charged often! I hope that helps. I really enjoy this product and it was well worth the investment!

    Extremely Disappointed!

    • Written by from Mississauga

    The concept and the look of the Magic Charger is great but only if it works. I charged the a battery overnight, installed it but the mouse didn't work. What made the situation more frustrating was removing the battery from the mouse. The battery fits too "perfectly" inside the mouse which it makes it very difficult to remove it afterward. I took it to an Apple store and they too couldn't take it off. Because it's a third party accessory, Apple will not take responsibility for the product even though I bought it off their website. I emailed Mobee and they gave me a tip on removing it but that didn't work either. In the end, I was able to pry it open (with extreme care!) with a small pocket knife and thank god, I didn't damage the mouse. To say I'm disappointed with the whole experience is an understatement.

    Not to be so negative, I am extremely satisfied and having fun with my first iMac purchase ever.

    Does not Work

    • Written by from New York

    I had the same problem mentioned in several of the other reviews: Despite charging the mouse overnight (first with the rechargeable battery in the mouse and then just the rechargeable battery), my iMac was never able to detect the mouse and the mouse's power light never came on. I emailed Mobee support and they did try to help (asking me to email them photos of the battery contacts) but I have already invested too much time in this. I hope they get the manufacturing kinks worked out one day.

    Useless

    • Written by from Mendocino

    I took the battery pack out of the box, tried to put it into the mouse, and PRESTO!! The thing broke. Literally right out of the box. The housing is made of typical junk grade plastic. Now I'm contemplating whether or not it is worth it to send the thing back, or just throw it in the trash. Thanks, Mobee.

    Great Product, needs a little re-designing to be a 5 star

    • Written by from Rancho Palos Verdes

    Great product, overall fit and finish is superb, almost on par with Apple as far as quality and design, works as advertised, looks great on a desktop and matches the Magic Mouse almost perfectly (except this product is silver plastic and not brushed aluminum, but it is very hard to tell the difference) and it is very convenient to not have to worry about changing batteries. I would definitely recommend to others and I am very glad I bought it.

    But, this is why I didn't give it 5 stars.... I consider myself to be very smart, dexterous, and tech savvy, and I had a VERY difficult time getting the battery pack into my mouse, and I'm not so sure the average consumer could have done it. I think the battery pack could maybe use a little re-designing to make it more easily fit into the mouse. Or maybe mine was just a fluke that didn't fit very well. I actually thought I was going to need to return it because the battery pack simply would not go into the mouse. It took a lot of work and maneuvering to get it in. Other than that, an almost perfect product that is definitely on my must have list.

    Junk!

    • Written by from Reading

    Worked ok for a few days, now will randomly disconnect many time a day, reconnects 10 seconds later and works fine. Seems the battery doesn't fit tight enough and momentarily looses connection causing the BT to disconnect.

    Not worth the money, went back to regular batteries and no more issues!

    Worse product I ever used.

    • Written by from Toronto

    it only goes to 75% changed when it's fully charged. And it stop working just few months. Now it's just sitting there collecting dust. I can't believe I actually bought it. DO NOT BUY IT!

    DO NOT BUY ... good concept; POOR design

    • Written by from Orlando

    Bought it with trepidation after reading the review; should have trusted y'all. Charged for 2 days. Then had a hard time getting it to "fit" into my mouse; the bottom clasp space wouldn't work so I used a screwdriver to pull the clasp back to it fit snug like the Apple cover does. Alas like others something inside isn't connecting like others' experience. Just buy a supply of rechargeable batteries til they figure this thing out or Apple makes a rechargeable Magic Mouse.

    Not Charging?

    • Written by from La Canada Flintridge

    Turn off your mouse and charge it and then turn it back on after being charged and it should show 100% charged. Reset mine and it works fine!

    I love my Magic Mouse. I am not as thrilled with the rechargeable battery pack. For some reason the battery pack doesn't stay clipped into my mouse.

    Mobee Magic Charger

    • Written by from Prescott Valley

    I received the charger as a Christmas gift and was delight. My Mouse had an appetite for batteries that was beginning to get expensive, so this was a terrific. I plugged the unit it into the USB on my iMac and it began charging immediately. After 24 hours it was still charging? After a close inspection of the batteries into the mouse I realized I had not completely seated and locked it into place. A little fiddling and the batteries snapped into the mouse and it was on-line and working just fine. However, I have noticed a couple of oddities.... First, if it's not centered on the charger it will not give a steady green light when fully charged. Second, if I notice a long time blinking while on the charger, I move the mouse in a small, perhaps 1" circular motion, center it up and the green light goes to steady. Strange? Last thing is my fault! I need to get into the habit of placing the mouse on the charger when I'm finished! I would definitely recommend this to all Mac users who are tired of feeing their mouse expensive batteries..

    Good idea but not a great product

    • Written by from Boston

    I too purchased this a few months ago and it worked perfect until my mouse stopped recognizing the battery pack. I thought that there was a problem with the mouse so I went back to regular batteries and the mouse worked fine. I purchased a second battery pack to test if it was the mouse or the pack and my mouse will not recognize the new pack at all. This after fully charging the pack for more than 5 hours. Needless to say I am returning this pack for a refund and Apple should stop selling this product since it is not compatible with its mouse. Bottomline save your cash and use regular batteries.

    Do not buy!

    • Written by from Taylorsville

    The battery pack that you insert into your magic mouse, will not stay in place due to the fact that the portion of the battery pack that would click under the black button on the underside of the mouse has not been engineered correctly to fully click in. So consequently the mouse will connect and disconnect from your Mac randomly. Save your money and just use rechargeable batteries if you would like.

    Christmas present: shiny paperweight

    • Written by from 横浜市西区

    Well, as far as looks and product idea goes...great job, Mobee.

    As far as actual working product that "just works"...needs improvement. I got this for Xmas and was happy but not so when I actually tried to use it. The battery unit charges apparently, but putting it into the Apple Magic Mouse results in failure. The mouse is not powered and I am planning on returning this item.

    Also, the catch on the battery cover release is not a good fit and the cheap, thin plastic of the "cover" part of the battery pack gets damaged if you take out and put in the battery pack more than 3 times, even as carefully as I was handling it.

    I do not recommend this product.

    Garbage. Don't buy.

    • Written by from Seattle

    Nice idea, but the technology is half-baked at best. We bought these for our office for the same reasons that other people did: save money on batteries, etc. But we couldn't even get a single unit to work properly. The mice simply wouldn't even turn on with the 'power-pack' attached. Disappointed, so we returned them and opted for Duracell rechargeable batteries. Much happier now.
