    Not impressed at all

    • Written by from RESTON

    all 6 batteries when used in my Magic mouse or wireless keyboard lose the bluetooth connection and only ever read 72% as max charge, also have repeatable issues with batteries not seating correctly in the charger - cheap product - can't say I recommend it.

    Simply fantastic.

    • Written by from TINTON FALLS

    If you can live with only being able to charge 2 batteries at a time, this is a fantastic charger. It's very small, which is great for me and the limited space I have. The batteries do not come fully charged but they've lasted at least 2 weeks now under very heavy use. And yes, it works with non-Apple products and batteries as well. I'm considering purchasing another.

    The batteries are perfect for you mouse/trackpad keyboard combination. The charger is well designed and sturdy. Would recommend to anyone.

    Great value for a great price.

    • Written by from Bacliff

    It's really nice to see a company come up with something to reduce both landfill contaminates AND consumer cost. I've been looking for a way to have my replaceable battery items to have rechargeable batteries, the only thing holding me back was the initial cost. At $29 on average for a battery charger (without batteries, which depending on brand can be half the cost of the charger for only two), I considered that to be too pricy. I'm not saying the environment isn't worth it, but I'm just a blue collar worker, don't really have the $70+ to get all my devices on rechargeable. Well, thank you Apple Inc. and Mr. Jobs for giving me the opportunity to help the environment without costing me an arm and leg. This is a great product at the price, and with the battery type, I can get more than the initial six it comes with and still not cause my wife to go insane because I'm trying to save our environment and money for the long run.

    A Must Have

    • Written by from Vernon

    This is one of the best accessories that apple has created in a long time. The rechargeable system is a must have with any wireless items. I hate to say that the normal batteries don't last long in my wireless keyboard/mouse/trackpad. I find myself having to change the batteries once every other month or so, and that really adds up to the number of batteries I go through each year. At least with the new rechargeable system, it only takes 5 hours for a full charge, and the batteries have a 10 year warranty.

    Mediocre

    • Written by from Portland

    Very disappointing performance. Once batteries are "fully charged" they last less than a few days in cordless mouse or keyboard.

    Doesn't Charge Very Well

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Really disappointed with this product.

    When I bought my new iMac in November it came with regular AA batteries already installed in the mouse and they lasted over three months so I replaced them with these rechargeable batteries and they last about a week or two and never fully charge. I can't get them to charge about 80% and I start losing a connection when they go under 50%. And half the time I can't get the charger to even register that the batteries are in there. I thought maybe I had a single faulty battery, but all of them are the same way.

    Stopped working after 2 weeks

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    It's barely been 2 weeks since I've started using these batteries/charger and after a single round, all I get now is a blinking amber light and no charge. Terribly disappointed.

    Miserably Disappointed

    • Written by from Dallas

    I've been an Apple booster for some 20 years but this charger is a miserable disappointment. The first one I bought was simply defective and had to be exchanged. The replacement charges, but almost never to 100%. The batteries last about 3 days in my mouse before I have to switch them out again. It can only be used with NiMH AA batteries, so all my other rechargeables are left sitting in a drawer. If I had it to do over again, I would have bought one of the more versatile (and less expensive) universal chargers that are available elsewhere.

    Terrible, doesn't work

    • Written by from Boulder

    I bought one of these for work and it failed to charge after about 2 charges. THey sent me a second one as replacement and it failed in the same way. Don't buy this product! They don't work and it is a waste of money. Get some other battery recharger.

    Simply Amazing!

    • Written by from Bangalore

    Not only that this batteries charge much faster than others, it also has an indicator light which turns green once fully charged. Not many Ni-Mh chargers I know could possibly do that. About the batteries- Even after the fact that they have a lower mAh rating compared to other ones in the market(2300mAh), I could shoot upto 250 photos on my canon 10x zoom powershot with most photos shot with the flash. Now thats what I call as performance! Way to go Apple!

    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.

    As usual, Apple continues their expertise in ecology, economy & 21st century design & ease of use! Is there a AAA battery charger on the horizon?

    Great Product!

    • Written by from Revere

    This product is very compact and a great value! You get 6 batteries with a 10 year warranty. These batteries at a full charge last longer in my digital camera than throw away batteries! I love this product.

    Not impressed

    • Written by from Auburn

    I like the design and thought it's from Apple, must be good. But it doesn't charges the batteries full, 70% is the maximum I get. Disappointing, the charger should look good AND charge.

    Second time around - and it works well

    • Written by from Westcliff on Sea

    My previous review was highly critical, due to the fact that the battery charger unit did not fit!

    However, one call to Apple Customer Services, and within 24 hours I had a complete replacement. Sent back the defective unit this morning.

    Great service from Apple and I have to say the charger is excellent.

    I bought a set for myself and will be purchasing more for friends as gifts. I only wish they would sell additional batteries separately so that I could run everything I own off of them!

    Incorrect information

    • Written by from DARIEN

    Unfortunately, the comment on Oct. 12 by BB from Gonzales is only partially correct. The current 2009 Apple wireless keyboard uses two AA batteries. The 2007 version uses three and the original 2003 version has four.
