    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.

    Good concept, bad design!

    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.

    Don't buy it

    • Written by from FOSSTON

    I was very disappointed when I received mine. Didn't charge thru usb to computer or usb the wall outlet. So don't waste your time, nice concept though. So glad I was able to return it.

    Missing piece to work

    • Written by from Hollis

    When I got the Mobee Magic I put it on charge for a day or two. By time i actually got the product to fit in the magic mouse, the product doesn't even work. Its missing one of the metal battery connector piece. So from day one the product is useless, don't wash your time buying.

    I have to remember to 'park' it

    • Written by from Reston

    I got this as a replacement for poorly performing (not Apple brand) rechargable batteries. The one anomaly I have is that the battery charge level is not reported to the Apple Mouse system preferences (as evidenced by no update on the battery status on the menu bar.) Battery life is pretty good, I've run for 4 or 5 days of hard use without draining the battery.

    So I'd rate this as a good product, that performs as expected. But I'm not sure how long I'd need to use this before it paid for itself in conventional alkaline batteries bought in bulk.

    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.

    Not for me

    • Written by from Palm Springs

    I received this for Christmas as a gift. Both my wife and I thought it was a great idea to help save the environment from more land fill of alkaline batteries.
    My first impression was it is heavier than using the AA batteries. You have to turn it off and on to get the correct battery level in the System Preferences and it is still not correct, it never reaches 100%. It is not easy to install or remove from the back. Maybe because of the weight. I am sorry but I think this product although a good idea is not for me. Too many issues for the benefits.

    No more batteries.....

    • Written by from Stuart

    Not sure why there are ANY negative reviews on this product as i have 3 of these units and each does exactly what it is supposed to do without any issues. I have owned them for at least a year and would never go back to using a mouse with batteries

    Great Product - Works like it should.

    • Written by from Elizabethtown

    I've had this product for almost a year now. I love it. I've seen some of the other reviews and I think as long as you use it right it works fine. Turn it off when you charge it and it charges and holds a charge fine. I use mine every day for work and will probably be buying another one for a second computer.

    Nice idea, mediocre product

    • Written by from LOS ANGELES

    The problem with the Apple Magic Mouse is that the batteries go weak and then die out in a way that is inconvenient and frustrating. The solution offered by the Mobee Magic Charger offers a lot of promise, but ultimately fell short of even my modest expectations. Everything about the product's concept and design is impressive, but after several weeks of use, the charger's battery can't seem to hold any power. I gave up on it and it is now less functional than a paperweight, sitting on the charging pad. The manufacturer website says this product can power a mouse for six days without charging. I've had it sitting on my charging pad for six days and the battery level remains steady at 11% and green light is still blinking. I've gone back to a wired mouse because when I'm using a computer the last thing I need to pay attention to is whether my mouse is going to work.

    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..

    Convenient but issues....

    • Written by from Beachwood

    So i waited a year before getting this product to make sure and read some great reviews. Now that I have it I do love the fact that I don't have to worry about batteries but at the same time, It only charges the mouth to 80% no matter how many different things i try. I have ran the battery out completely and recharged it. I have also shut the mouse off at night so it would charge over night, and still only ever gets to 80%. Happy with this? Yes I am please with the product. Disappointed? Yes I am also not to impressed on the charge it holds only after I bought it brand new. Love the good, Deal with the Bad...

    Garbage

    • Written by from London

    The unit is terrible. It takes forever to charge and does not last very long. The battery that it comes with hardly fits the mouse. I put the unit and when I tried to remove it, it would not come out. I ended up damaging my mouse just to remove it

    Pure Junk

    • Written by from San Luis Obispo

    First thing I did was plug the USB End into a iPod charger. It took 30+ hours to charge. Once charged it works till the battery starts to drain down. Once that happens it will disconnect at times.

    After about a month I found out the charge will not last very long at all. Must charge it every day or two. Lots of hassle. Forget to charge it then have fun replacing it with batteries as the cover is flimsy.

    Worse 40.00 I've ever spent. In the trash it went.

    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.

    Not a snug fit

    • Written by from Dubai

    Since no one else reported this problem, it appears to be particular to some units only. In the unit I bought, the battery pack does not snugly fit into the magic mouse, which results in random on/off of the mouse because of the battery unit loose fit. This renders the unit pretty unusable!

    batteries more effective than this trash

    • Written by from Kemah

    battery pack wont charge and because I can't prove the date of purchase vendor will not warranty it. It's only three months old! A overnight charge should be able to get you more than three percent! I have a keyboard that does the same I'm lucky to have that cell work for a afternoon after sitting on the charger for a week. If you have these then keep a wired keyboard and mouse you'll need them more then these
