Product Information

  • A smarter way to charge your batteries.

    The sleek, compact Apple Battery Charger is all about efficient charging. It's optimized for Apple-supplied batteries, but it works with AA NiMH batteries from other companies, too. And with a feature that automatically reduces its power intake once your batteries are fully charged, the Apple Battery Charger is one of the most energy-efficient rechargeable battery solutions available.

    It comes fully loaded. And then some.

    Each Apple Battery Charger comes with six NiMH batteries — two for your keyboard, two for your mouse or trackpad, and two for charging. Not only do these high-performance batteries have up to a 10-year lifespan(1), they also hold a charge for an incredibly long time. So you always have power when you need it.

    More charges. Less waste.

    The Apple Battery Charger has one of the lowest standby power usage values — or "vampire draw" — of similar chargers on the market. That’s the energy that most chargers continue to draw even after their batteries are done charging. Unlike other chargers, the Apple Battery Charger senses when a battery charge cycle is complete and automatically reduces the amount of power it uses to 30 milliwatts — more than 10 times better than the industry average.(2)

    Better for the environment.

    With the Apple Battery Charger, you no longer have to buy or hassle with the disposal of batteries every few months. The charger works quickly and efficiently. And once your batteries are fully charged, it draws less power than many similar chargers on the market. (2)

A single indicator on top informs of charging status, and getting 6 NiMH batteries is a great deal. 10 year life span according to Apple? Wow. I'll check back in 2020.

    I like that Apple has used the same battery compartment style that is in the Magic Mouse (and maybe other products). Two chrome rivets as opposed to springs. Makes for cleaner install and also like the fact that both batteries install the same way.

    You can hook directly to a 2-prong Mac cord, or use the flip plug like on other Apple adapters.

    I was a little reserved at first, but I'm happy with the $30 that I spent. The batteries look cool, too. :) Although a AAA option would have been a nice touch--but Apple obviously designed this to work with it's wireless accessories - to add a 'green' option to all the batteries that you will be using.

Very compact (small enough to fit into a quad outlet with all the other outlets in use!), but has a very substantial feel. Great travel size... the AC plug slides out so you can use your charging cord from your Mac or plugs from Apple's Travel Adapter kit if you're traveling outside the US...

    Comes with 6 batteries - wish Apple sold extra batteries for it.

It mak The Apple Battery Charger is a great, little device that allows the charging of the six included AA Rechargeable Batteries. It makes a perfect accessory for me, with an Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Trackpad. I can always put the charged batteries in when the other two drain. The batteries charge pretty quickly, and best of all, this charger is very small, portable, and has that classic Apple design that looks fantastic.

    Three sets of batteries and two devices - Magic Mouse & Apple Keyboard, so it was good! I would always have a set charged and ready. Sixteen months later and less than two dozen full charges on any one set and today the 2nd of 3 sets refuses to hold a charge. For $30 I would think these would have lasted much longer...

    I'm a heavy user of Apple rechargeable batteries. I use my Apple bluetooth keyboard and magic trackpad for a minimum of 8 hours every day (I'm a web developer and I work from home). This battery charger and the six batteries that come with it are the only batteries I've purchased in well over a year (huge savings right there). I remember there being some complaints that the battery status doesn't show 100% when you put the fully charged batteries in, but that's the norm with rechargeable batteries, and who cares? They're charged! It's not like they die a day later.

    In my experience a charge on these batteries lasts a good two weeks (with my heavy usage) and as soon as I get the "Your batteries are getting low" message from either my trackpad or keyboard I grab the charger (holding two of the batteries) off the outlet it's plugged in and do a swap. It takes about 10 seconds (I use one of the prongs on the battery to unscrew the battery compartment).

    So if you're on the fence, go ahead and get this product, especially if you have a bluetooth keyboard and trackpad. The six batteries and charger are the perfect pairing with the keyboard and trackpad (or mouse).
