    It is useless

    • Written by from Bern

    I bought this without checking the reviews - what a mistake. I opened up the package and left the battery to charge on the very attractive desk station. After about five hours I inserted it into my magic mouse - not an easy step, the plastic housing is very very fragile and bends so easily. Got it in OK, then the mouse would not switch on. The battery was charged (full green LED on station). So, struggled to get it out as the housing is not a good fit to the mouse. Read the various support forum advice from Mobee - was no help. Inserted again - again no power on the mouse when I switched it on.

    Then, I read all the reviews here and found that once the power was working then many people had problems with the BT link not being stable.

    Decided to take it back and I bought a set of rechargeable batteries.

    Disappointing - the idea is great, execution does not work.

    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.

    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.

    Junk - do not buy

    • Written by from FAIRBANKS

    My children purchased this for me as a gift for father's day.

    It stops working connecting and disconnecting probably three times an hour. It obviously isn;t connecting with the mouse innards properly and the metal base bends easily making it useless.

    Don't waste your money

    Piece of junk

    • Written by from Tucson

    This product is just a piece of junk. It almost ruined my apple magic mouse -- while I inserted it into the mouse, it did not work; and it takes me 2 hours to get this out of my mouse.

    Just doesn't work properly

    • Written by from Toronto

    My experience with this product seems different to what I've read from most. I was able to charge the batteries and connect the mouse. The problem was scrolling. It moves painfully slowly in a vertical direction and not at all in any other direction. Back to basic batteries.

    simply does not work

    • Written by from San Francisco

    this product just doesn't work. it appears simple and i have communicated with mobee about how to make sure the battery pack works, but it will simply not turn on and run my magic mouse despite all other signs (green light, etc.) saying it should work. this is the worst technology purchase i've ever made. worthless. my disposable batteries lasted for over 3 months so i think i'll just stick with them.

    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 San Francisco

    this thing looks so easy, but mine just won't work. it says its charged, but as soon as i take it off the charger the red light goes on and it won't work. you're better off just changing batteries - its not that hard. this is a $50 piece of junk.

    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.

    Induction Battery Pack has no power and is very malleable

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Put the induction battery pack in the mouse. Let it charge on base until base's light was a constant green. Tried to turn on the mouse, but had no success. I don't think the mouse is getting power because its little green light is never coming on. I want to push or re-seat the induction battery pack, but it is flimsy and only slightly stronger than a piece of aluminum foil. I will be returning it.

    Horrible product and troubleshooting thru Mobee

    • Written by from NANAIMO

    First off, after the battery pack was fully charged, I tried using my mouse to find out that it won't even turn on. I tried several times replacing the battery pack, but to no avail. One of the worst parts is that the battery pack gets jammed into the mouse, and I had to use a tool to pry it out (being careful not to damage our beautiful mouse). Definitely not ready to be sold until all the bugs are worked out.

    Good idea, bad execution

    • Written by from Fishkill

    I agree with the review that it's a flop. I'm having same problem. I will now have to drive all the way to an apple store to have them safely remove the charger from magic mouse because I can no longer use the mouse. This is a product that is not yet ready for production. Needs more testing. It's horrible. I shouldn't have so much trouble. Also, try adding better instructions and trouble shooting to your packaging if you are going to have a product that doesn't work out of the box.

    Complete Flop

    • Written by from London

    I purchased this as a gift. The Mobee backing/battery pack was difficult to install properly, and once installed and charged up, it did not respond with the magic mouse. Additionally, removing the battery pack and backing was impossible. I had to bring the whole mouse into an Apple store where they were able to (thankfully) remove it.

    This product is a good idea in theory, but does not fit well into the magic mouse and does not power the mouse properly. Also - once installed, the mouse doesn't actually rest in the cradle properly either.

    I returned the product and was very disappointed in this product and wouldn't recommend it.

    Pain in the

    • Written by from Eureka

    Worked well when it worked. (give it 5 stars for that) Mine died after 4 months. No customer service number to reach Mobee. Have to send in "work order ticket" via email. Two days later got a response. If I had known what a hassle it would be I would have saved my money for regular batteries.

    poor design

    • Written by from Warminster

    battery doesn't fit into the MM. Tried every way possible, and I get it to just barely fit in and stay. However, it doesn't fit well, and the bottom of the battery sits below the rails on the MM. So the paint coating of battery has worn off.

    I've gone back to just using rechargeable batteries.

    Magic Mouse Charger

    • Written by from FAIR LAWN

    I was so excited to buy this when it came out and now it's just a piece of garbage. So disappointed in this project. I wish I could return it! It shouldn't even get a 1 star rating.

    Setup a concern

    • Written by from Manteno

    Unfortunately the setup was not successful. I removed the AA batteries & replaced them with the Mobee Magic Charger batteries, but it didn't exactly fit right. Just like a previous review mentioned, the Mobee lid wasn't flush with the bottom of the Magic Mouse like the original lid is. The Magic Mouse would not power up. I charged it up but because of the mis-match fitting, I don't think the leads aligned right. I used eyeglass screwdrivers to try to fit this in the proper way but I wound up breaking the metal lead. A good concept but the kinks need to be worked out. Can you say 'quality control?'
