When using these batteries with a Magic Mouse or an Apple Keyboard, does the mac correctly identify the percentage of charge left in them?
I'm asking because I have other batteries of this kind, from another brand, and the percentage is always inconsistent. It always begins at 80%, and then when it gets close to 40% or 30% the batteries die suddenly. I'm thinking the reason for this is that these rechargable batteries have a 1.2 voltage while the magic mouse needs 1.5. Is the percentage of charge left more accurate with these batteries?

How long do the batteries last on a full charge cycle, and what is the starting percentage… with the Magic Mouse? with the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard?
I'm not sure why Apple pulled my question a few days ago. There was no profanity and it was respectfully commented on one time.
My question might help sway many of the recent negative reviews.
Whenever I've used 2200 mAh Energizer batteries in my Magic Mouse, the percentage has always started at 76% or lower, and never consistent. I was informed rechargeables are only 1.2v compared to regular alkaline which are 1.5v. Perhaps, the software meter in OS X may not be taking the lower voltage into consideration?
The NiMh Energizer batteries in conjunction with the Energizer 15-min charger I own are AWFUL. They only last 3 to 5 days depending on a bunch of variables. I would like to know, BASED ON EXPERIENCE, how long these Apple batteries last on a full cycle using their charger. I don't think anyone wants to buy another dud no matter what statistics tell us.
