    Batteries never fully charge

    • Written by from Singapore

    Batteries never recharge to their maximum or don't recharge at all, despite the light going from orange to green. Very poor.

    A great use for anyone

    • Written by from GOLDEN

    When it comes to needing batteries for your Apple wireless devices, or even any device that requires some AA batteries, the Apple rechargeable batteries are your friend. Their long lasting battery life, and quick recharge abilities truly help you when you need batteries. They also help you to keep from having to purchase AA batteries. This is definitely a great buy for Apple users.

    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.

    Not a full charge but good enough

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    I understand that people have been complaining about not getting a full charge out of these batteries. Understandable. When I charged them I got about 80% of a full charge. Also they seem to discharge fairly quickly (Lost 5% of a charge in half a day). We'll see how they last over time, but they are good enough for now, considering I can recharge them and don't have to throw them away.

    New charger

    • Written by from Greenford

    Bought the charger today, fitted in two of the batteries to charge, amber light kept flashing to say something is wrong..... great start!! tried again and again and eventually the light stayed amber.. same thing happened with the remaining four batteries amber light flash's to indicate a fault, anyway fitted two in my keyboard and two in the mouse the remaining two will be for the magic trackpad.

    Keyboard shows 89% charge mouse shows 86% now just have to wait and see how long they last, at least I won't have to buy some more AA's for a while...

    Not enough of them

    • Written by from Oregon City

    Got two of them to support all the batter-powered Mac accessories we have. The only problem I've had is that between them they provide 6 sets of batteries and that is not enough of them. I'm gonna have to order another one.

    Compact Charger

    • Written by from Bloomington

    This charger works with two 1.2V AA batteries. It is elegant and compact, the plug slides off to connect to a travel adapter or cord from a laptop charger. Easy to carry in a laptop bag. It is all color coordinated with your other Apple products. The amber light flashes if there is an error; the batteries have to be seated perfectly in the charger or the light will flash. This is the only drawback. It is far superior to other AA chargers I have purchased in the past.

    Faulty Apple Battery Charger?

    • Written by from LETHBRIDGE

    I just bought 6 NiMh apple batteries with a charger a month ago. When the batteries went down to 10% in Magic Mouse, I recharged two AAs and it took 32 hours to see solid amber light turning to green light, and it shows only 88% full. Now i am charging the second pair of batteries to see how long it will take.

    Is this a defective charger or battery problem? Very disappointing...

    Great Product Apple!

    • Written by from West Vancouver

    6 Batteries and a Charger for $29.99 is a great price for anyone that wants to get rechargeable battery pack. Others would cost more than this great deal.If you don't have these I recommend you to get them!

    Love it!

    • Written by from Rockford

    I have had this charger since the fall of 2010 and have found it to be reliable and a great asset for my all my electronic needs. It charges quite quickly and the compact design makes it easy to take with me on the road. There are some batteries that are not compatible with it, but I mostly use the batteries that came with it so that usually is not a problem. When the batteries that came with the charger eventually fail then I will make sure the batteries I buy to replace them are compatible with the charger. It does not take a degree to figure that out as some seem to suggest. Great product.

    Battery charger

    • Written by

    This Apple product looks really good and the concept is cool. But, the real catch is when it comes to charging, all the 6 of the batteries need a very frequent charging as they get discharged too soon. The indicator turns green showing that the battery charge is full, but when I put them into my mouse and start using it shows 93%. As and when I use the batteries they get discharged soon without much long usage.

    Simple and Elegant

    • Written by from Huntington

    I know it's just a battery charger, but the build quality is nice. I like the fact you can use your laptop cord to plug in. With a Magic Mouse, wireless keyboard and trackpad the six batteries are handy. Silly not to have one.

    Have had the charger for a day now. Everything seems to be working great. Batteries charging to 100% power with no problem. Battery percentage in tackpad have not changed since charged batteries installed. Everything seems to be in order.. All and all a fast little charger.

    love it

    • Written by from whittier

    I absolutely love these batteries, sleek good looking good price point and a smart move to both go green and make another buck by apple. I have had the set since the week it came out and use the batteries for a multitude of tasks.
    the only reason that I gave 4 instead of 5 stars is because as of this point I can't find a way to buy more of apples batteries (note that I am saying more of their batteries, I understand you can buy generic but it would make good sense for apple to sell more of their own instead of expecting me to buy a whole other charger that I don't need or having me put a third party battery in their charger which they won't warranty down the line)

    Sorry Apple. This product is off the mark.

    • Written by from Coconut Creek

    Usually I give most Apple products a chance and usually love them. This product however, is a battery charger. Not rocket science.. but I hate to say that they got this little device all wrong. looks great but functionality is horrible. Never charges fully. Goes up to about 85% and then drains far too quickly. I get about triple the usage out of regular batteries. If you're looking for a good rechargeable battery charger. You might want to look somewhere else.

    Apple Battery Charger

    • Written by from Federal Way

    I just got mine today! I'm pleased with it so-far; although, I thought it said the batteries would be charged and ready to goI

    So I plugged it in with the two batteries in place as shipped and it gave me a red light. In about an hour it changed to green.

    I'm happy with it!

    Disappointing level of charge maintained

    • Written by from Medway

    After my corded mouse finally went to heaven I had little choice but to move to wireless. My new magic mouse has performed satisfactorily so far - but it is the rate at which it eats battery charge that's unreasonable.

    The design of the charger is excellent. It is the quality I have to question.

    My local Apple store and a premium reseller in the same vicinity both told me they had three months usage from the Apple Charger and its batteries. On the strength of this I purchased but the actual performance has proved far from the quoted time scale.

    After two or three charges I began to carefully mark the batteries to determine if particular ones were less powerful than others; I achieved a quite remarkable unanimity of performance.


    I've also tried 2 sets of Duracell premium batteries. Their performance was slightly but not markedly worse.

    I have an Apple iMac mid 2007 running Snow Leopard. I use my computer for about 3 hours per day and my average monthly bandwidth usage is less than 4GB. As a machine it has been excellent and I have no reason to think it is draining the battery due to any technical malfunction.

    All in all it comes back to the charger and batteries. They meet less than 20% of the estimated performance, a figure that in some countries would give grounds for a charge of misrepresentation. I don't think like that - but I am very disappointed.
