    Charger stops charging fully after a while

    • Written by from Coldbrook

    The capacity of the batteries appeared to drop gradually until I was only getting 30 minutes or so from a charge. I tried charging them in my Duracell 15-min rapid NiMH charger and they reported 100% again.

    Conclusion: the batteries seem to be okay - the charger stops charging them fully.

    Pros and Cons

    • Written by from Berkeley

    Pros

    1. Stops sucking power once the batteries reach 100%. Supposed to anyway. This way you're not wasting energy when it's done charging like most chargers do.

    2. US plug can be converted to international.

    3. Looks nice

    Cons
    1. Plug blades collapse inward when you try to plug it in.
    2. Seems to be charging after it's reached 100%. Light stays orange instead of green.
    3. Occasionally you'll set it up and find out there was an error, the status light is blinking and batteries weren't charged. Re-seating the batteries seems to help even if they were seated correctly to begin with.

    Good Charger, Except...

    • Written by from Orleans

    This is a great charger that charges fast. It's compact, sleek and doesn't take up much room. But when I got it, it only came with 2 batteries, NOT 6. I'll be calling Customer Support on this one. But besides that, you should get this charger because its so great. (You Probably won't have the problem I have.)

    They don't last long.

    • Written by from New York

    They last about 17 days in the Magic Mouse with a usage of 10 hours a day.

    After a year the charger and the batteries started acting up. It's hard now to get them to charge. Often the amber light will blink and i have to remove and reinsert the batteries and the charger a dozen times to get them to charge. This wasn't a problem in the first year and i don't do anything differently now.

    It's interesting that the warranty expiry and the onset of problems coincide.

    Gets hot....

    • Written by from Marietta

    The form is nice but doesn't seem to charge any quicker or hold the charge longer than my Panasonic rechargeables. And the charger can get very warm when it's in use.

    Seems you're paying for form over content! And the brand, of course.

    Good batteries, weird number

    • Written by from Sherman Oaks

    It's odd that this charger comes with six batteries, when the Magic Mouse requires two batteries, and some models of the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard require three. This leaves me with one spare battery in the package, meaning I can't have a pair charged and ready to go for when my mouse or keyboard dies.

    This is silly, Apple! Include eight or nine.

    Apple Battery Charger

    • Written by from Manhattan

    Works good. Batteries seem to last several months in Keyboard and Mouse, and I use the computer at work all day. I do not turn off the mouse and keyboard at night, I just put the computer to sleep.

    Pro: batteries hold charge for quite awhile when not in device, so are ready to use. Attractive and small charger. Compact packaging.

    Cons: charger should hold 4 batteries at a time and you should get 8 batteries so you can use 4 and charge 4. Other chargers I have, that are similar, the lights flash when charging, when they are charged lights stop flashing. This one the light turns amber to green when finished charging. I am color blind so can't tell when it turns to green. Or if it is green and they are charged when I put them in.

    Poor Charge

    • Written by from Cottonwood

    Like others I thought this was a good idea. Not. It does show 100% charge, but not for long. I've had the iMac + charger & batteries since early December and have had to change the mouse 4 times. The keyboard is still at about 35%. The 4th time I changed batteries on the mouse I used Duracell regular batteries and after 3 days it still 100%. Apple batteries would be about 80%. I'll wait to change the keyboard until it's lower to see if the regular batteries will be better. This is only good if you run out of regular batteries, at least it's a backup.

    Nice charger, doesn't come with enough batteries

    • Written by from Fort Myers

    The idea is great. Have batteries for you keyboard, mouse and extra for when they run down. But, apple keyboard takes 3 batteries, magic mouse takes 2, leaving only one extra. ( comes with 6) What good does one extra battery do? The charger itself is small and nicely designed.

    Apple Battery Charger

    • Written by from Halifax

    The Apple Battery Charger works as expected my gripe is with the batteries. They don't seem to work like Eneloops which hold most of their charge for up to a year, the Apple batteries seem to self-discharge. I fully charged them when I first got them but when I went to use the batteries they were at 60% after a couple of weeks.

    Disappointment

    • Written by from Boca Raton

    Obviously I like Apple products- I bought this thing. But, especially compared to other Apple products, this one is subpar. On the plus side, the unit is handsome, is simple to use, and it comes with six batteries. However, it never charges the batteries fully. I even unplug it/plug it back in, and the batteries still only get up to about 70% off two charges. In retrospect, I should've purchased a charger that juices all 6 batteries at the same time (and of course charges them 100%).

    Nice price

    • Written by from Eastern Passage

    Got to admit the charger looks great and is quite small. The only thing I must say is that i cannot get those brand new out of the box batteries that came with the charge to charge to 100%. I did purchase this unit yesterday and max I am getting out of them is 93% on the keyboard and 83% on the mouse. Using normal Energizer batteries I get 100%. So not sure if this was a good purchase.

    Battery Charger

    • Written by from Liverpool

    I purchased a Battery charger and I'm reasonably happy only one problem is the design of the charger. I find it a bit difficult to pull the charger out of the wall socket Ideally you could do with a lip on either side of the charger so you have something to grip apart from that it does the job

    Just received my new Apple Battery Charger. On first full charge it show's 92%, so i let it charge more. After that i tried on my magic mouse, it show's only 85%. Not sure if it's normal but the product is sleek and sexy.

    Seemed like a great idea, but...

    • Written by from Mobile

    It seems that as soon as I install these (after a full charge) they only show a level of about 70-75% on my Magic Mouse or Keyboard. They also don't seem to last nearly as long as regular Energizer/Duracell type batteries. I guess that's the price you pay for saving a few bucks on disposable batteries.

    It's a battery charger.

    • Written by from Binghamton

    Other than being tiny and white, I don't see where this product has an advantage over any other battery charger: this may be a product that Apple just couldn't improve. However, they have made it difficult to use for people with limited color vision. The indicator light is tiny, and for people with moderate red/green color blindness the amber and green colors can be hard to distinguish. How about blue and orange for the next model?

    OK, but NiZn batteries are better

    It's fine, but I've found the newer NiZn batteries last much longer than NiMh.
