    Excellent design and simple to use.

    • Written by from Pontiac

    The charging unit is very compact and the charging time seems to be fairly quick. The six batteries that come with the charger is a good amount (for use in Keyboard, Mouse & Track Pad). I am really happy about this purchase and glad that now I don't have to recycle batteries all the time.

    Hmm... Well they're batteries? Not really sure what to say about them...

    • Written by from Brookville

    They didn't come charged when i took them out of the box, but that didn't really matter to me. Truthfully they are no different than any other batterie i've used but the packaging is nice. What else would you expect from apple? So thats pretty much it. They're defiantly a good buy, i don't even need to stock so many batteries anymore!

    Great Product - been using for over a year

    • Written by from Franklin

    First time I've ever rated a product, and I remember pouring over the reviews on this product before buying it, so I thought I'd contribute.

    I'm a heavy user of Apple rechargeable batteries. I use my Apple bluetooth keyboard and magic trackpad for a minimum of 8 hours every day (I'm a web developer and I work from home). This battery charger and the six batteries that come with it are the only batteries I've purchased in well over a year (huge savings right there). I remember there being some complaints that the battery status doesn't show 100% when you put the fully charged batteries in, but that's the norm with rechargeable batteries, and who cares? They're charged! It's not like they die a day later.

    In my experience a charge on these batteries lasts a good two weeks (with my heavy usage) and as soon as I get the "Your batteries are getting low" message from either my trackpad or keyboard I grab the charger (holding two of the batteries) off the outlet it's plugged in and do a swap. It takes about 10 seconds (I use one of the prongs on the battery to unscrew the battery compartment).

    So if you're on the fence, go ahead and get this product, especially if you have a bluetooth keyboard and trackpad. The six batteries and charger are the perfect pairing with the keyboard and trackpad (or mouse).

    DEFECTIVE

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I ordered this and when I plugged it in the light flashed amber-according to instructions this happens only if the unit is damaged or using defective batteries etc. As that was not the case either the unit was defective or the manual is incorrect. Anyhow-I got 2 more replacements and had the same issue with all three.
    I spend 30 minutes on the phone trying to explain what a battery charger was to return it. it was a nightmare!

    better than the rest batteries are excellent

    • Written by from Crestview

    I purchased one of these a year ago, it works better than the energizer batteries and charger I had been using. Some of my devices refuse to work when I use rechargeable batteries EXCEPT when I use the batteries supplied with the apple charger. Then they work fine. I use this for my wireless keyboard, my magic mouse and my magic trackpad. and I LOVE that it came with 6 batteries rather than the standard 4 that other systems tend to come with.

    I am thinking about purchasing a second unit for my other non apple devices (xbox controllers) because these batteries are way better than the ones I get at the store.

    Great charger!

    • Written by from Montreal

    Great Apple-quality product. Comes with 6 batteries which makes it a really good deal for the money. What I really like is that it works with the Apple Travel Kit, so it's very easy to charge your batteries when you're overseas! Not to mention it looks slick!

    Quality Charger

    • Written by from Columbus

    I purchased (2) chargers about 4 years ago, these are still working like new. they last a long time, I alternate batteries and keep them charged so I always have fully charged batteries, these are designed for batteries that come with it, not other brand batteries. plus I have saved a ton of money not buying regular batteries, and filling up land fills. this is a no brainer, well worth the money.

    Apple Battery Charger

    • Written by from Branchport

    This thing deserves 5 stars across the board. I was buying batteries for my magic mouse constantly because they would be dead in a week and a half. I do a great deal of Photoshop work and on my iMac all day long constantly. I decided to buy this charger. Not only does it come with 6 batteries it holds the charge immensely! I am going on week 3 and still at 93% life left on my first charge! If this were those expensive batteries I have been buying I would be replacing weekly! Another note. I noticed store bought batteries are not really gauged correctly as far as life is concerned if you look to see how much life is left. One day it will say 90% and the next day it will say you have 5% left. This charger & batteries seems to gauge the life left correctly. I wish I had bought this sooner as I could have saved a great deal of $$$$..For $29.00 this was a great buy!!! Happy I bought it for sure!!!

    Beautiful design. Terrible batteries.

    • Written by from BURBANK

    Apple should be embarrassed and replace them with normal rechargeable batteries. Apple found the worst rechargeables in the World and put a shiny silver label on them for marketing. 80% when fully charged and Trackpad went down 10% in one day. I have absolutely no interest in recharging these batteries every week. Duracell batteries last more than six months on my keyboard (less with Trackpad). Apple? We are waiting for you to acknowledge and correct this defective product.

    79% charge and why only two?

    • Written by from GRAND BLANC

    Just like the other reviews stated, my batteries only charged to 79%.

    Also, why would Apple make it so you can only charge two batteries at a time, my wireless keyboard takes three batteries!

    Six batteries are included so it would have been nice to charge three at a time only having to swap the sets twice.

    Hard to find in store but worth the search!

    • Written by from Willow Grove

    Last year, I purchased my father a top-of-the-line iMac. He loves the iMac. He games a lot and it was quite difficult to get him to try and use the Apple Mac accessories (keyboard, mouse and trackpad). But he did eventually try them out and loves them! For this holiday I had trouble finding something to compliment his Mac experience. This battery charger was the best thing I could find. He was overjoyed! And since I bought my MacBook Pro and iPad.....this battery charger has been heaven. It's so simple to use, it's power efficient and just speaks of the quality that Apple embodies. It also really showcases Apple's commitment to the environment. (Which I never took too much of an interest until I read about Apple's strong efforts.) The batteries are high performance and look to last for years. At the retail store in Willow Grove, PA, they told me that Apple was going to discontinue the Apple Battery Charger (since it was not out in the store). If that is true, I really hope they reconsider. And I hope this review helps consumers to be more aware of how Apple is helping the environment with quality!

    Stopped working after 18 months

    • Written by from BRIGHTON

    A good looking product that work well for a year and a half and then the charges were lower and lower judging by need for replacement every week. Tossed the batteries and bought new ones but the charging power was still very feeble.

    Simple, Cheaper and Reliable!

    • Written by from Elmwood Park

    I am writing this review because I saw many reviews that had low ratings and this has not been my experience. The charger is simple to use and does its job. In fact I have a set of 6 that are 3 years old right now and my wireless keyboard lasts a couple of months without the need for recharging. My magic mouse (without turning off like I should) will last anywhere from three weeks to a month with high usage. There have been people complaining about batteries lasting longer than 3 years (which mine have) however, 3 years is usually the maximum life you would get out of similar top selling bunny sponsored rechargeable battery brands, with the Apple batteries being a cheaper price even with including the mandatory charger. I have since bought 2 more charger/battery 6 packs to power all my remotes and flashlights around the house. It's been 9 months and I just turned a mag light on and it was still producing a full powered bright light. I just wish apple would make additional batteries available without having to buy more chargers but overall it's a great product!

    WAY better than energizers...

    • Written by from Woodland Hills

    I've been using Energizer rechargables and the thing I always noticed was that once they were charged, if you leave them on the charger it continues to over cook the batts, causing long term damage and shortened life. This apple charger is "smart", when they're charged, it shuts off! When you come back hours later, the batts are nice and cool.

    Thanks Apple!
