    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.

    buy a set of rechargeable batteries instead

    initially it worked well but now constantly disconnects and won't re-connect unless turned on/off a few times.

    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!

    DOA

    • Written by from San Francisco

    With the Mobee, I was hoping to find a simple solution to keep from replacing my mouse batteries every month. The product worked for about a minute out of the box, so I thought it just needed a full charge. After charging the batteries for 2 days (and getting a green light on the charger) I was unable to get the mouse to turn on for more than 5 minutes. On the second charge attempt, the mouse would not turn on at all, even after several attempts in inserting it into the mouse. Looks like I'm still on the hunt for a "green" solution.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Great for saving money on Batteries!

    • Written by from Bennington

    I have had my Mobee Charger for about 4 months. I work on my computer all day and was frequently replacing the batteries in my Magic Mouse before I got this. Now I just set it on the charger everyday when I go to lunch and it is charged up when I get back. So far I have not had it run out of batteries at all. It's a great asset if you use your computer a lot!

    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.

    Great at first, but fails over time

    • Written by from Cottage Grove

    I bought this charger at the Apple Store in May 2012. Since then, the occasional disconnects were because of low battery charge, and putting the mouse back on the charger always resolved those disconnect issues. In late December 2013, the disconnects became constant and the computer was almost unusable. No amount of recharging would help as the battery level % was pretty high. There had always been a lot of scratching on the bottom of this battery pack, but as I looked a bit closer, the battery pack was sagging so much I am not sure the mouse was making proper connections anymore. Too bad, it seemed like a great idea, but with less than 2 years of personal use, the battery pack is shot.

    It would be nice if it worked

    • Written by from Union Dale

    I really wanted this product to work. It's a great idea but it just isn't engineered right. The battery pack does not fit properly and this causes the mouse to lose the connection a few seconds after you touch the mouse.

    Apple does not provide tech support for the product and apparently the manufacturer does not either.

    I'm amazed that Apple even sells this in their store. Fortunately they will accept the returns but I wish I had not wasted my time.

    DOA right out of the box.

    • Written by from Northampton

    Spent $49 (huh?) at an official Apple dealer, thing won't charge. It's been 36+ hours, base station keeps blinking red.

    Buy a good set of rechargeable batteries and charger. Forget this nonsense.

    Never ever worked.

    This thing was extremely difficult to install into the Magic Mouse. It was impossible to get it into correct position, and impossible to remove. Since it NEVER EVER charged, I had to THROW THE WHOLE MOUSE AWAY. FAIL.

    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.

    Should've read the reviews before buying

    • Written by from Oakland

    Looks like mobee has an issue in their hands and don't seem like they fixed it besides sending a new one to replace your broken mobee, I'm sorry but I don't have time for that. I bought this thing earlier this morning at the apple store really eager to use, left it on the charger for about a hour before using and no luck! Been on this computer on and off for the past five hours trying to connect this mouse and for some reason I put in regular batteries and now my Magic Mouse cannot connect period? Did mobee just kill my Magic Mouse?! if it did I'm sure they better be replacing it! Anyways horrible experience trying to connect this thing! Will be returning tomorrow morning! /: was really hoping to use it and have its benefits come in good use, guess not this time mobee!

    nice idea, poor design

    • Written by from Harrison Township

    Just impossible to easily insert and remove battery pack. The first one I bought just failed to re-charge after a short period. Even with the struggles trying get the darn thing out of the mouse, I went and purchased another battery pack. Worked great for while, but still not practical. When it runs down you can't wait around for it to recharge, to keep working the battery pack has to be replaced with regular batteries. Good luck removing the battery pack...now my mouse is destroyed try to extricate it.
    The Apple Battery charger much more convenient, reliable, less expensive and a snap to replace batteries. Like I said...great idea, poor design. Save your money and your mouse. I cannot recommend this product with current design.

    Battery set does not fit and is no good for professional use.

    • Written by from Knokke-Heist

    First of all: the battery set does not fit in my Magic Mouse, it keeps falling out, so I had to fix it with a piece of tape.

    Even worse: as a professional photographer, on an average day, I'm correcting and adjusting about 700 pics a day. That boils down to about 20.000 mouse commands. The battery charge will only last about 6 hours under these circumstances. So it's really no good for this kind of professional use. 50,- euro's (that's $67, 50% more expensive than in the US!) down the drain...

    Unless.. I have a lemon and Mobee will come up with some miracle solution...
