    Works Great with Some Mice

    • Written by from MONTICELLO

    I have a number of Macs and Magic Mice. The Mobee Magic Charger will not charge an older MM but works flawlessly with a newer one I have. When I could not get the Mobee charger to work I went through all the problem solving steps listed by other. Finally I charged the battery pack outside the MM. But when inserted and fully charged it still would not connect. Next inserted the battery pack in a newer MM and it connected to my Mac and charged on the base. It has operated flawlessly for several weeks. It keeps this MM charged to 100%.

    I suspect those with difficulties (after verifying that the pack is inserted properly) may have an older Magic Mouse. That would make charging problems a function of the mouse not Mobee.

    Incredible

    • Written by from Pietermaritzburg

    My magic mouse is my constant companion in work and play. My Mobee kit arrived yesterday. There was no problem in installing it - just make sure the black button clips onto the battery pack! It's easy. The lighter battery pack has improved the feel of the mouse, but what I can't understand, and am thrilled about, is that the tracking consistency and feel of the pointer movement seems to be more accurate and consistent than with regular rechargeable AA batteries. And Jitouch and BetterTouchTool (true Magic Mouse connoisseurs will know) no longer seem to conflict when it comes to taps! And leaving it on the charging matt to recharge (with my Iphone 4 wall charger adapter!) overnight worked perfectly. Great product.

    Mouse weight is much less with this battery pack! Easy to use.

    Works as advertised, integrated design

    • Written by from Brandon

    I have had the device for several months now. The battery pack it comes with keeps its charge for a long period of time (I have yet to manage to exhaust it). The charger is unobtrusive on the desktop and integrates well with the mouse in it's look. I would recommend this device.

    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.

    its okay...

    • Written by from Calgary

    i just got this product yesterday and i am not impressed at the fact that i cant charge my batteries without having the computer on all night. for 50$, its kinda stupid but i found one of the phone chargers for the iphone and all i did was replace the iphone cable with the magic charger (coz both of them use usb ports) and so far, the light is blinking and i think it works fine. as for putting the battery in and taking it out, i did not have a problem...

    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.

    Great Product, don't believe the haters

    • Written by from Allentown

    I put off buying this product many times because of the negative reviews. But they are just wrong....

    If you have any hand-eye coordination or a passable amount of mechanical ability, the battery insert CAN be installed correctly, and it will not fall out. If you've changed the batteries on your magic mouse, this is simple.

    Insert the top portion (near the optical eye) FULLY first. Then insert the bottom portion FULLY, until the slide thing clicks into place. Done.

    I got to the point where I couldn't stand having to change the batteries on my magic mouse so often. This is an elegant solution.

    Also, my battery percentage seems correct. Not sure if i'm reading something wrong.

    Get the product, you won't be sorry.

    fantastic!

    • Written by from Toronto

    I love my magic mouse and bluetooth keyboard, but have always been frustrated by the amount of batteries I buy to keep them running. This device works fantastically, looks nice, and has prevented me from buying batteries for three months now. I'm off to the store to buy their keyboard charger as well!
    Great work, Mobee! Assuming that the Mobee battery continues to function for a few years, this product really is green, and will pay for itself many times over.

    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.

    All good except for. . .

    • Written by from Wanganui

    I haven't experienced most of the complaints noted on here.
    The fit, the look, the connectivity, have all been fine.

    My only complaint is the reported battery level indicator.
    As many have stated, it only reports 80% at full charge.
    Well mine only shows that for maybe an hour and then shows 2%. . . sometimes it only shows 2% at full charge (based on the solid green light indicating fully charged).
    This means I can never know when it's going to die. I still have to keep a secondary mouse available just in case.
    One user said he puts it on charge anytime he's not using it. This means the battery life will degrade way sooner than expected.
    As stated in another review, it would good if Apple produced an alternative indicator suited to this device.

    Too much hassle

    • Written by from duncansville

    Just got this product and was very disappointed. Great idea to make battery rechargeable since it is good for the environment and convenient, but when I placed the battery pack in my mouse after it had been charged fully, there was no connection and the mouse would not turn on. I am planning on getting one more to try and see if it works, but if there is a any hassle I am going to just send it back and stick to regular batteries. If some improvements on fit and quality were made this would be a great product but unfortunately it is not worth the money as is now.

    Great Product

    • Written by from Mayfield

    This product works as advertised but needs far better instructions. First off you cannot simply drop the battery pack into the mouse. It must be tilted far enough to allow the lip to completley engage, and then to make sure the lock in fully engage, otherwise the battery pack will fall out. If you do it right the pack stays in place. You will never see 100% charge due to the type batteries the unit uses. When it shows around 80% charge and the green light is lit it is fully charged. I like the fact that it is a USB charger but you do use one of your limited USB ports. That is why a mliti-port USB adapter is a wise investment. Macs do not have enough USB ports as we all know. All in all this product is well built, looks good, takes up very little room, and works as advertised.
