    Works well, super convenient

    • Written by from Cedar Park

    I have been using this charger for about a month now, and I am pretty happy with it. My only complaint would be that the charging indicator is inaccurate in on the Mac. From what I understand, that is because the batteries are 1.25, instead of 1.5 volts. It can be a little annoying because you really never know what the actual charge level is. That is the only reason I give it 4 stars out of five, and that might be a little unfair since that is really an Apple software issue.
    So far I have been able to keep it off the charge for as long as a week before needing to recharge it.
    I really don’t understand the confusion over how to install the batteries. It seems like it really only goes in one way, and once it is in there, it seems very secure. I don’t see any normal scenario where it would fall out if it were installed properly.
    Good product so far, and so much more convenient that switching out rechargeable batteries every couple of weeks.

    Chronically Disconnected

    • Written by from Chesapeake

    Is it me or is it my imagination? I've had issues with Magic Mouse disconnecting and now with Magic Charger installed it's worse. I love the concept and when it works it's wonderful but constantly having to reconnect is frustrating. I suspect the problem lies within the bluetooth communication system. It is flawed and this makes it nearly unworkable.

    Complete garbage - cheaply made

    Does not work

    Very poor quality. Did not work from box. Very poorly constructed. Broke as I tried to connect it to my Mac. Never did work.

    Save your Money

    • Written by from Orlando

    I hate to say that unfortunately this product is a waste of money, the batteries do not charge and if they charge they lose charge after about 1 hour.
    Go with apples rechargeables with the wall wart adapter.

    WORTHLESS PIECE OF JUNK

    • Written by from Richmond

    This worked very well for a few months. Then, it would charge, but never say it was charged (admittedly, this might have been a computer issue). Then, it stopped working completely, after the extremely delicate plastic broke. So, I would say that this product is worthless. Worse than worthless, actually, because now I have a Magic Mouse without the bottom plate.

    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.

    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.

    You Need 2 Battery Packs To Use This

    • Written by from San Jose

    Lucky for me they accidentally shipped two of these to me instead of just the one that I ordered and thank goodness they did! You can only charge the mouse battery when it's plugged in the computer. The only time my computer is on is when I'm using it with my mouse. So I always have that second battery charged and ready to go thanks to their mistake. If I only had one battery, I'd be up a creek when the battery dies, and that's quite often. This would be an excellent product if they included a wall charger. Serious design flaw.

    I honestly do not know what is going on with these negative reviews. I've had mine for three months (I bought both the mouse and the charger at the same time) and have had no problems with it. Knock on wood.

    Great device, but a pricey one for what it is

    • Written by from West New York

    I was in my local Apple Store last week, and saw this on the shelf so I decided to get it. Setting it up was easy enough, and it was charged up in about four hours. As previously mentioned, the one major glitch is that you never get a 100 percent reading, even when it's fully charged up; the best I've seen is 90 percent. I must have a later model, as mine came with a micro USB cable, instead of the mini USB one others had mentioned. I haven't had it long, but I think I'm going to keep it.

    I would recommend this to a friend with the caveat that it really does cost much more than it's worth, IMHO.

    Love it!!

    • Written by from LAWRENCEVILLE

    I bought this because I really despise changing batteries. The first one I got would not charge due to a small error on the design of the fit. Unfortunately, as we all know, with any computer products, it only takes a small error, especially with new products. I brought it back and exchanged it with the thought mistakes happen. My replacement fit perfectly, and I am SO happy I exchanged it instead of simply giving up. I absolutely love it. I use my Magic Mouse all day, every day and the Magic Charger just keeps it trucking along without having yo change batteries. I don't have to worry about battery disposal, nor do I have to swap out rechargeable batteries. It's well worth the cost in the lack of hassled actor overall. Just place it on the charging platform and it charges. Sweet!

    Excellent accessory!

    • Written by from Leesburg

    I burned through batteries with my Magic Mouse very quickly. I didn't like that idea and was contemplating the purchase of rechargable batteries when I came across the Mobee Magic Charger. The concept of not having to remove batteries for charging was very attractive so I bought the unit.

    I have not been disappointed, it works a treat. There are reviews here and elsewhere that discuss the details about battery level and keeping the batteries charged, I won't go into that detail. I'll just say this is an excellent solution that works. I put the mouse on the charge pad whenever I'm away for a while so the mouse is always ready to go.

    It is worth noting, as have others, that no charger is actually provided which is why I give it only 4 stars. The manufacturer expects the computer to charge it via USB. But if the computer is off that doesn't work, so buy a charger of at least 2 amps or use an iPad/iPhone charger. Also, beware of reviewers who cannot figure out which way the charging pad is placed. One review I read the guy had the charging pad upside down, despite the rubber feet and shiny white plate that the mouse sits on. When it didn't work he had to call Mobee. Do I trust the rest of his review? i think not! Sad.

    Just a quick note to emphasize the charger's power requirement. I first plugged into a USB powered hub, but that didn't provide sufficient amperage to charge it in a reasonable time. A dedicated charger is best, the iPad 10amp charger works very well with it.

    Enjoy this product and free yourself from the battery monster!

    Once Installed Right, Works Great

    • Written by from Riverton

    The Mobee Magic battery pack does NOT install easily into the Apple Magic Mouse. The tiny metal part that sticks out (the part that touches the Magic Mouse and completes the battery circuit) breaks extremely easily. However, once the battery pack is installed correctly it works amazingly! It charges easily, quickly, and you never have to take it back out once you finally get it in. I would definitely buy this again (and did), but be very careful when you install it. It would be great to see Mobee improve on their design and either get rid of, or improve, that tiny metal part.

    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.
