    I will not re-hash all the problems that others have with the never ending charge light blinking. My experience has for most part been positive until recently. The connector (uUSB) has started to fail and now requires a bit of manipulation to get power into the device. I'm just outside of the 1 year warranty so the manufacturer will not even discuss it.

    I enjoyed the convenience of not having to change batteries often but the product should last longer than 1 year, and if the company will not stand behind it then they don't have faith in what they are producing either.

    Absolutely does not work. Stay away this unit

    • Written by from Sausalito

    I gave it one star just because somehow you can't put 0.

    The saying goes like this:
    "there are liars, darn liars, god darn liars, and then there are battery engineers"
    The first battery pack lasted about 2 weeks. Mobee was kind enough to send a new battery pack. Once the pack was charged, the mouse only moved vertically. it won't move horizontally because I'm guessing this made in china product has not figured out that the pack does not sit right on the mouse thus movement is limited. Even when it moves, the mouse disconnect and reconnect at will. No its not my mouse issue. Once I put regular batteries it works like a charm.

    An absolute waste of money; Get a wired mouse or, if you still trust battery engineers, get a charger.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    • Written by from Glendale

    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.

    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...

    Garbage

    • Written by from Newmarket

    This was a cool option to replace battery use in my mouse at first. THEN it stopped holding a charge within months of operation. It is a piece of junk that would be better priced at $15 for the quality you get. I will not be buying another unit. Also, batteries should be sold separately because you will need replacements every few months but they aren't available to purchase separately. I highly do not recommend this product.

    Seroius waste of money

    • Written by from Barstow

    This sounds like a good idea, but the heavy battery case constantly loses contact with the Magic Mouse and makes the already hard to handle Magic Mouse even harder to use due to it's added weight.

    Fried my magic mouse

    • Written by from Danbury

    Beware of this product. just got it this week. Put the magic mouse on it over night. Next morning, Mini Mac w Mountain Lion wouldn't recognize it. Had been using it for months with batteries. Now its a light weight paper weight...
    Reinstalled regular batteries, same thing. When activating the mouse, the active light on it turns green and stays green.

    Very bad product

    • Written by from chickasha

    This product will always lose connectivity with your mac and the only way to resolve it is to go to bluetooth setting and delete it then do a search for it again all while turning mouse off and on until if finds it. This will happen about 6 TIMES in a workday. I have 15 workstations that all do it. So prepare to loose money while investing in this horrible product. Also the bottom cover pops off at least once a day that is really hard to make stay.

    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.
