    Better and more convenient than regular batteries!

    • Written by from SAN DIEGO

    I like Apple Battery Charger and the rechargeable batteries that come with it. They are very convenient. The batteries included recharge well and last a while. The charger and batteries also have a quality look and feel. Unlike non-chargeable batteries, you don't have to constantly buy new batteries and throw away the discharged batteries. My experience with the Apple Battery Charger and accompanying batteries has been very favorable and I'm thinking of buying a second one to use around my home in other appliances.

    Great Product

    • Written by from Redlands

    I've had this recharger for about nine months now. It does everything it promises to do. It's easy to use (I especially like that both batteries point the same way when they're in the charger), and the charged batteries are right there when you need them.

    Some reviewers have complained that the rechargeable batteries don't show a 100% charge when you check the battery level on the mouse. The Apple FAQ explains that this is due to the voltage differences between standard batteries and the rechargeable batteries, and not a defect in the charger. The batteries are 100% charged when the charger shows "green". Furthermore, I think Apple has corrected this problem in one of the recent OS updates, because my rechargeable batteries now show 100% charge when you check the mouse. I recommend this product without reservation.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Great competitive price!

    • Written by from Apollo

    When I got my iMac I didn't realize how much the Magic Mouse would eat batteries. So I decided to buy the Rechargeable Batteries. The $30 price tag seemed steep at first. But I looked at other chargers from Energizer that come with two more batteries and a charging station for about the same price but just didn't look as good. Also knowing this is a Apple product I know it if it breaks or anything I will get great support. The design of the battery charger looks great fits in well with the rest of the small Apple stuff I own. My batteries came 85% charged and the charger had a hard time deciding on what to do with the batteries. When I plugged it in the first time it was Orange. Plugged it in a again and it was flashing orange. Plugged it in a 3rd time it was green. Puzzled, I left them plugged in all night and took them out and it was 86%. Very odd. But all in all its a great and very competitively priced Battery charger. But even if you don't own any wireless Apple products you should still get these for your T.V remotes and any other things and save a TON of money on batteries.

    Full Charge = 62% on new mouse = disappointing.

    • Written by from Middletown

    bought a new 27" iMac. bought the new apple battery charger at the same time. plugged it in, charged up the batteries until the energizer batteries died in the new mouse. put the new fresh recharged batteries in the mouse and it says it is at 62% charge. kind of disappointing.

    i do have to say though, for a mundane item like a battery charger the design is very nice. the specs say it has a green power saving mode which is also very good, no vampire power sucking. but still, it only charged the batteries to 62%. it does come with 3 sets of batteries and i haven't gone through and charged them all yet - but i will do that now that the first round only provides 62% life.

    could it be faulty batteries? maybe a less-cool looking charger that has been around longer would deliver a reliable 100% charge.

    • Written by from Singapore

    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.

    Great, Cheap, Works well!

    • Written by from douglaston

    Before I say anything; let me mention that this thing is SMALL! I am most likely going to have to buy another one as I might loose it. But for 30 dollars, you get a charger and 6 AA batteries, 2 of which goes to my Magic Mouse for my MacBook, and the other 4 I use to various items. I will probably be buying more of these because of the need of more batteries. THe only gripe I have is that my MacBook shows that my batteries are 88% when they are fully charged. (I know the NiMH have 1.2 volts rather than the normal 1.5volts) I just wish Apple would release an update for those of use using these types of batteries.

    It came with a pleasant surprise for me.

    • Written by from Fair Lawn

    Like anyone else, I thought you're only getting the wall charger & 2 AA rechargeable batteries. However, when you open this package, keep digging deeper. They also include another 2 sets of 2 AA batteries in addition to the first two (comes with 6 AA batteries altogether).

    Long Lasting!

    • Written by from EAST HAVEN

    This is a definite must have. Compact. Light. Batteries keep charge for a long time (as in over a month) I frequently use both my wireless keyboard and wireless track pad. So if you have either of those products, this is WELL WORTH the investment.

    I'VE SAVED $$$ buy using this instead of buying 1x batteries. Added plus, it's good for the environment!

    Sleek and extremely useful... Like everything else from Apple!

    • Written by from Plano

    I couldn't wait to get my hands on one of these. It works wonderfully, charges quickly, and is the best companion to my new i7 iMac. I was really glad it came with six batteries; Two for the keyboard, two for the Magic Mouse, and two for my Magic Trackpad.

    I would like to point out to those who underrate this product that rechargeable are not like regular batteries, in that they're not as powerful. These are low output rechargeables, so they will not read as 100%. Please remember to also use the battery until dead, then recharge, to condition the battery and maximize it's charge!

    Battery are very simple but in Apple style . They take a long time to charge but that preserves the life of them . Kind of cool you can put a cord on the charger so it does not have to plug into the wall. Just use your macbook , macbook pro , Or Travel kit to adapt to it .

    Not so good.

    • Written by from Jacksonville

    I bought these batteries over a year ago and right away my bluetooth manager would report the newly charged batteries to be far below 100%. As a result, the charge would not last nearly as long as with other batteries. Thankfully, apple keyboards and mice don't seem to use much juice, so these batteries were still usable. However, I just went to charge a set of batteries and sparks were flying out of the back of the charger and now it altogether doesn't work. Poor product for sure. Seeing that I can't charge apple batteries in any other charger these are useless so I grabbed some of my energizer rechargeable batteries and they show up close to 100%. I plan to recycle these batteries and go buy a few more energizer packs (which have always worked great with my xbox controllers). Do yourself a favor and avoid these.

    not good batteries

    • Written by from oakland

    These batteries are not good at holding a charge.

    They come dead, so you know they are not low self discharge, just a fancy package of standard NiMH batteries.

    They don't charge to 100%.

    They don't provide enough power to keep my bluetooth keyboard connected, at the exact same distance that the eneloops work fine.

    Don't waste your money on these, they really aren't very good batteries.
