    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...

    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

    Works great, have two of them

    • Written by from Essex Junction

    Living on both sides of the Atlantic, I bought two chargers. They work just great, just put the mouse on the charger one night per week, and it is always charged. So far I have never had any problem with the light not starting to flash green when I position the mouse on it. I used rechargeable batteries before, but even though the charge lasted longer, this is much more convenient. When I move to my other residence, I just plug the charger into the usb connection, and it is ready to go. I can always check the battery status in system prefs>mouse, lower left on the window.

    Extremely convenient

    • Written by from LEBANON

    I had purchased two of these devices a while ago. They do work very well. Only caveat is the placing of the mouse on it's charger. Wait for the light to turn green. It it's orange, reposition the mouse until the light turns green.

    Great Product - Works as advertised

    • Written by from GREENVILLE

    I've been using one for over a year and have not had any problems with it. My mouse will work for almost a week before having to recharge it. The only issue is if the battery gets too low and it loses connectivity I may have to reset the bluetooth connection before it starts working again but as long as I charge it before the batteries die I don't have any problems. I'm going to buy another one for my other computer's mouse.

    Does not charge reliably

    • Written by from Durham

    I've been using one of these for 8 months now. Although there are benefits to never having to worry about replacing batteries, those benefits are easily outweighed by how this device will not charge reliably.

    I would expect to be able to set the mouse on the charging pad and have the light turn from red to blinking green (indicating that it is charging,) but that rarely happens so easily. Instead, I have to keep taking the mouse off the charger and "dropping" it from about an 1/8th of an inch above the charger until it lands in a fashion that causes whatever is not connecting to connect. This is a raindance I do every night before bed if I hope to have a usable mouse the next day.

    On top of that, the blinking green light is supposed to turn solid green when the mouse has finished charging. This never happens. Not once in the time I have owned this have I ever seen a solid green light. I could leave it for days, and the light will never turn solid green. The most common light? Solid red. That just means nothing's charging. Second most common light? Blinking red. That means, "something is wrong, but don't worry about trying to figure it out; it's really just a symptom of a sub-par product. Try again later."

    If and when I can get the charge to "stick" and the blinking green light to commence, I have to watch it to make sure it stays green and blinking. I failed to do this last night, and this morning I awoke to a solid red light again, as if the mouse was not sitting on the charger all night, which it was. It also has no charge.

    Stay away from Mobee products. They do not "just work" like you would expect something found at the Apple Store to do.

    Broke quickly and doesn't work.

    • Written by from Indiana

    This looked like a great item to keep from using batteries in the Magic Mouse. But one end of the plate containing the rechargeable battery is so fragile that in trying to put it in place it bent and broke within a few minutes even with gentle handling. When I finally got the batteries in and could hold it in place with my finger, it wouldn't work. I don't think it's even worth returning at this point. Part of the problem is the instructions are so minimal it's hard to tell how to put the rechargable batteries in, set it up and charge it.

    cool product

    • Written by from Erie

    I had the Mobee Magic Charger since I got my Magic Mouse; I had never used it with any other batteries. I find it very easy to charge and works flawlessly for me since day one. A green light indicates when it is fully charged. I don't understand people that said it is a cheap product, etc. If there is an issue contact Mobee for assistance. Overall a cool product to own.

    Not Ready For Prime Time

    • Written by from Miami

    I have used this for nearly three months. The unit has become unreliable and now when charging the battery pack I get constant green blinking lights then once in a while a red one.

    The bluetooth feature connects and disconnects so much now it has forced me to go back to regular batteries or rechargeable.

    I would pass on this unit at it truly is a great idea... but it is not ready for prime time. Spend your money on a good AA rechargeable battery set.

    Wish I could return it.

    Bad half made product

    • Written by from Old lyme

    This is a half made product, good idea but is a low quality product, battery pack is badly designed so the contacts bend easily and brake contact with the mouse. Waste of time and money :(
