    Disappointed!

    • Written by from Oakland Park

    I purchased this device based on the great reviews I read, but was extremely disappointed at how poorly it performs.

    1. It would take several attempts for it to link to my MackBook Pro (2010).

    2. It would sporadically LOSE its BT connection to my computer, even when there is 70% charge left on the mouse. It would do this at least 5x per day!

    3. It would never fully charge my mouse to 100%, even when giving it a 20hr charge without use! It always read 65% - ???

    None of the issues above would happen with my Magic Mouse when it is using normal AA batteries.

    I returned it after 2 weeks of frustration.

    I'll take the Apple rechargeable battery pack.

    • Written by from Baltimore

    I've been a long-time fan of the Apple rechargeable battery pack having at least three of these. But I got suckered into a slick new technology that seemed simple and foolproof enough...I was only partially right. The device is nicely constructed to match the Magic Mouse. It comes with the charging pad and a battery pack/cover that replaces the corresponding Apple parts. But from there on , it's been downhill for me.

    My two biggest complaints are centered around the very reason one would purchase the Magic Charger. The batteries do not hold a charge despite being on the charging pad overnight. It will drain up to 50% of it's charge in less than a day. Seems excessive... Second, it loses the connection to the Mac on a regular basis as I'm working. This is REALLY annoying! Right now I've replaced the Mobee batteries with some off-the-shelf EverReady Lithium batteries. So far no disconnection, so I've pretty much ruled out everything but the Mobee batteries. Don't expect me to figure out why, I'm just interested in the results.

    Great Until...

    This product was great until it stopped working 3 months after I had received it as a birthday gift my son had spent his hard earned cash on.

    Love it

    • Written by from Magnetawan

    I bought 2, and I always forget to charge it, but it still always works. so the charge lasts long. I had a problem with one . pretty sure I got food crumbs in it , and emailed Mobee, the only way to contact them, and they sent me a new one without even looking at the receipt. Just wanted me to send a photo of it.

    Very unreliable connection.

    • Written by from PLEASANTON

    I researched why my new magic mouse frequently lost connection. I have a recent laptop and a new mouse. The issue seems to be like the blogs said: the batteries in this charger are the issue. After I purchased the rechargeable Apple batteries and used those in the mouse, it has not had any connection problems. The computer is able to wake with the use of the mouse too. The charger has its own enclosed batteries, so the Apple batteries are not able to be used with the charger. I would guess they aren't compatible.

    The Apple rechargeable batteries are almost as convenient and cheeper.

    Great idea and Great product

    • Written by from Petersburg

    I have had this for a little over a month and love it. So easy to set up and use.

    The keyboard magic charger is awful, but the mouse works great!

    Flawed product

    • Written by from Swindon

    Echoing so many of the other reviews here - I bought one of these (Apple store, Portland OR), and it worked great for about 10 days. Now, however, it won't charge (or at least, report a charge) beyond 3 or 4%, and I get constant "mouse battery low" notifications and random disconnections.
    As a concept, great. As an implementation - second rate. I expected better; don't Apple do basic quality screening on products they stock in their stores?

    Need improvement

    • Written by from Epping

    Other inductive charging solutions (for phones) magnetically locate the inductive coil in the phone, to the one in the charger pad. The magic charger really needs something like thing, as if the mouse if not aligned properly, it'll take significantly longer to charge.

    The reduced capacity of the batteries is an issue. Really you need to stick the mouse on the pad every night, and if you forget a couple of nights in the row, you're back to the AA's.

    Great....at first.....then....not so much

    • Written by from Brentwood

    I usually wait on reviews as a product may work great for the first little while - but what I am most interested in - is the long term viability for a product....and this one fails miserably..

    ok...so nothing lasts forever....everyone gets that....but i would expect this product to last at LEAST 2 years.....I've had mine for just a smidge over a year and now.....DEAD. Won't hold a decent charge - constantly losing connection and flashing the battery symbol in the bluetooth icon.

    i have a 5 year old blackberry that holds a better charge than this.

    It frequently disconnects

    • Written by from San diego

    The product would be perfect if it worked well. It keeps disconecting all the time.
    And I'm having trouble to charge it. I never have 100% charged.

    Pretty Useful Gadget

    • Written by from Yorktown

    I bought a Magic Mouse years ago when they first came out, but ended up rarely using it because I hate buying batteries. I recently purchased the Mobee charger and now I use my Magic Mouse daily! So far I've only charged the mouse ONCE and a month later it's still at almost 100% charge! Also, my son was playing with my Magic Mouse one day a couple years ago and bent the back panel so it didn't fit on properly. The "battery pack" for the Mobee replaced that ugly bent back panel :) The Mobee charger does exactly what it says it does- charges my mouse, keeps the charge, and the charging pad is very sleek and attractive and looks great and inconspicuous on my desk!

    Doesn't fit, great idea

    • Written by from Memphis

    I was really excited about this thing. Sadly, it doesn't fit properly into the battery compartment and the plastic feels super cheap and flimsy.

    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.

    Charges best with battery out of mouse...

    • Written by from Sunnyvale

    ...yet never seems to reach a full charge. I've never seen higher than 85% even when it was new and I let it charge overnight.

    Had the mouse for about 2 months or so, and the highest I'm able to charge now is 82% with zero use, out of the mouse, roughly 14 hours charging. Battery runs down quickly with use. I'll be at half charge by the end of today. Disappointing.

    2 star rating: 1 for the fact that it basically works and 1 for the design idea.

    I brought my magic mouse to the apple store, Tried for 5 minutes and finally got it in but I couldnt get the latch to slide over to lock it in. Not worth the hassle if it keeps falling out

    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.
