    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.

    Works great!

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I love saving money and the environment. The only complaint I have about it is that the status on the battery is not correct. I had almost 80% left on the battery and then it just shut down. So after I recharged it, it was fine. I now place it on the charger every other day to keep my mouse charged.
    I recommend this to everyone. No more trying to see if I still have AA batteries available. I plan to also buy the same product for my keyboard.

    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.

    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.

    Don't forget to charge it everyday!!

    • Written by from Vicksburg

    Full charge was holding fine for first few weeks, but now (after about 2 months of use) I need to charge it every second or third day.

    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.

    OK, but...

    • Written by from Vancouver

    This seems to work as advertised, but when I charge it on the base unit, hook it up to my MacBook pro and click the mouse on system preferences, it gives my a charge of just 82%. It was sitting on there for at least 12 hours, the light on the base unit was solid and not blinking so I am just wondering why I don't see a charge of 100%??

    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.

    So Far, So Good

    • Written by from Lake Worth

    Reading reviews here and other locations I was not sure about purchasing this product. Took the plunge yesterday. I studied the various sources regarding proper installation of the battery pack before proceeding (thank you early adopters!!) and in my case the battery pack installed smoothly and charged up in about 5 hours. No problems to date and most importantly, the periodic mouse disconnects are gone!!

    good up close, terrible at 5ft or greater

    • Written by from HUMBLE

    I've had the battery pack and charger for approximately 6 months and have a hate-love relationship with it. If i leave the mouse on my desk it normally works fine; if i sit in my recliner (5 1/2 ft from MAC) to watch movies and intend on using the mouse I have to either use an alternative input device (another mouse, keyboard or apple pad) or be ready to fidget with the bottom of the mouse to make it reconnect. The mouse will stay connected for a few minutes but then loses the connection and i have to push, pull or reseat the battery to make it reconnect. Gets very frustrating and want to throw it out the window most of the time! Doesn't always charge either with LED staying red even after an all-night charge.

    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!

    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.

    Works great, never bother with batteries again!

    • Written by from Marana

    I was hesitant when I read some of the less than optimal reviews but I went for it and picked this up. I love it, it installed easily and charges as advertised. Now I never experience the "disconect / connect" loop and the mouse is always ready to go.

    Awesome!

    No problems - very satisfied

    • Written by from Northville

    Bought this about 3 weeks ago, more on impulse because it looked really cool. I read some reviews and wasn't completely sure how it was going to be, but the batteries actually lasted much longer than I expected. I have had no problems with the battery pack coming undone, and the charge has continuously lasted me over a full work week. Overall, charges fast and does what it says.

    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.
