    Works perfectly for me

    • Written by from STEVENSVILLE

    I use my magic mouse constantly and this product has worked perfectly for me. My Magic Mouse is several years old, I purchased it when they first came out. The charger has worked perfectly for me. I haven't had the problems other reviewers have reported. The battery and lid were no harder to insert than the original battery compartment cover. I leave the mouse sitting on the pad and it is always fully charged whenever I begin to use it.

    BTW, there is a nice widget (Mighty Monitor) that you can use on Dashboard to show your wireless battery levels. It is nice to always have the mouse charged. For me this has been an easy and elegant solution. I don't understand the problems others have had, but if it doesn't work for your mouse, return it to Apple for a full refund (within 14 days).

    Great Idea, Bad Engineering

    • Written by from CARROLLTON

    I absolutely love the concept and enjoyed the mouse for the short time it worked. The battery pack started popping loose thereby causing the mouse to lose its connection with the computer. I constantly had to reseat the battery pack and reconnect it with the computer via SETTINGS. I finally gave up and called Apple. Being inside of the return window, I am sending it back and hoping for a redesign by Mobee. I suggest an AC/USB charger be added to allow for charging separate from the computer.

    Cheap

    • Written by from Watkinsville

    The cover for the battery compartment for the Magic mouse is made of a fairly sturdy piece of what I would guess is aluminum. You remove this piece and the batteries and insert the rechargeable battery from the Mobee. The part of the Mobee that essentially replaces the battery compartment cover is cheap and flimsy plastic. The portion of this that is up against the rechargeable batter is fine. The other part however, the part that locks into the mouse is subject to damage that the regular cover would be unlikely to sustain. I inserted the battery and close the case and the Mobee did not "turn on" the mouse. So I put it back on the charger to see if it was charged and it was. I popped the battery back out to make sure I seated it properly and upon my reinstall, the tab on the cover that goes over the black latch essentially snapped making it impossible to firmly seat the batteries in the device. Great idea, cheap execution.

    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.

    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.

    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.
