    Sour Apple

    • Written by from Rolling Meadows

    Great concept, if only it charged the batteries. After charging the batteries overnight (the instruction manual suggests 5 hours) the battery level of my keyboard only reached 81%. I put in new Duracells and the level was 100%. The problem may be the manufacturer of the batteries, as they are not made by Apple.

    Excellent, compact, and long lasting.

    • Written by from COLUMBIA

    I've had 2 of these for several years now. I'm confused by the reviews that mention poor battery life, because this has not been my experience

    Since each comes with 6 batteries, I use one pair each in a wireless mouse, a trackpad, and the third pair kept in the charger. I would say each pair typically lasts for over 2 months between charges. The Mac Pro computer they are used with is kept on 24 hours a day.

    I use the second set to charge a pair for an Apple wireless keyboard I use with an iPad, a pair in a wireless transmitter for my onstage in-ear monitors, and again the third pair is kept in the charger. The keyboard lasts well over a month per charge. The in-ear transmitter is more power hungry, but I can typically use it for 2-3 gigs (about 4 hours each) before I need to swap out the batteries.

    With the batteries inserted in the charger its size is not much bigger than 4 batteries would be outside the charger. Small, convenient, and very reliable. I've recommended these to people several times, and everyone I know who has them is very satisfied.

    clean and works as advertised

    • Written by from Saint Louis Park

    I use this charger with the 6 batteries it came with and am slowly adding other NiMH batteries as my devices need them. The charger works great with either and the Apple branded batteries outlast all others. I wish Apple sold expansion packs of batteries alone!

    The biggest waste of money ever on an Apple product

    • Written by from Greenville

    The problem with this charger is simple. It doesn't recharge batteries. I had two rechargeable batteries in it for a week and it just plain didn't work. I am used to Apple having superior quality hardware. I'm sorry to say I was disappointed.

    batteries don´t last much

    • Written by from Seattle

    I bought these for my trackpad, after the salesperson said they were lithium ion. They are not lithium ion, and whereas the included non-rechargeable batteries lasted several months on the bluetooth trackpad, these last me around 2-3 weeks per charge. Slightly greener than buying non rechargeable batteries, but annoying.
    I have a solar keyboard that never needs recharging. Much better.
    Wish there was a solar trackpad, but haven´t found one so far.

    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.)

    Junk!

    • Written by from woodland hills

    Stopped working after only about 7 days. The recharged batteries empty out only after 1 day. I went back to energizer batteries. What a waist of my money!!!

    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.

    cool!

    • Written by from Hyde Park

    This is great because you can put the batteries in the thing and plug the thing in and it charges them so you don't have to buy new batteries. Wish they gave you more batteries because I put them in my remote and I have other things that need batteries as well and I don't want to switch them out every time all of the other things die, because I've noticed they die more frequently than the remote but they don't give you many batteries with the thing and I wish they did because I could use more batteries.

    Horrible. Period. Purchase 4 mos ago, just tried to charge the batts.fail

    • Written by from Clayton

    I bought this charger with my trackpad a few months ago because I had a gift card. The included batteries in my wireless keyboard just started to give out today all of a sudden. Not sure why since the last time I used the keyboard it was showing 87%, today it was down to 10% somehow. Anyway, I opened the charger box which incluced 6 batteries. Two were shrink wrapped and two were already in the charger, so I plugged it in straight away fresh out the box. Blinking orange. Manual says batteries are either not seated correctly in charger or defective, etc... reseated the batteries 3 times..nothing.

    This is pure garbage. Not what I expect from Apple.

    If I had known what to expect...

    • Written by from Toronto

    ...maybe I would have liked this product more. If I had known (from perhaps the "documentation"?) that the batteries will not charge to more than 85% then maybe myself and some other people who bought this charger would not have had our expectations disappointed by an Apple product. I am not and do not want to be an expert on rechargeable batteries. I just want this thing to work. So I am going to give this product a chance over the long term. Still, I see that my Magic Mouse, which chews through batteries like there's no tomorrow, is down from 85% to 72% in 24 hours. And the flashing amber light, which you can make go away by unplugging and replugging the unit or by wiggling the batteries around, is dumb. Hmmm, how many AA batteries could I have bought for 30 bucks?

    doesn't work out of the box

    • Written by from Austin

    bought mine with a gift card. Batteries are installed according to the instructions on the charger. + is up toward the indicated light. orange light stays light for a few seconds then starts flashing. What the...? can't give it more than one start if it doesn't even work out the box.

    • Written by from Orange

    I tried charging all 6 included batteries and also my brand new magic trackpad's batteries since they were dead... So, with 8 batteries havent charged once. Looks like I should switch back to Alkaline batteries since THEY AT LEAST WORK! Dont even bother for this thing.

    HORRIBLE!!

    • Written by from Miami

    Extremely unsatisfied customer this has been the third charger I have bought! It always manages to twist in the hard part of the charger where you connect your phone. It's a waste of money and a very poor product!!. Throughout my whole life I have never had a charger made of a soft flexible material. Wondering who had the brains and came with this product! Can't wait to switch to Samsung!

    Don't spend the money! These batteries don't charge!

    • Written by from Hockessin

    I can't get these batteries to charge - the amber light stays on and the green full charge light never comes on. Even overnight charging doesn't seem to work. This is going right back to the local Apple Store for a refund. Save your money - use regular old Alkalline batteries instead.

    What's the rave?

    • Written by from Victoria

    I'm surprised this junk is Apple branded. The batteries don't sit well in the charger, it's hard to tell when they are charging, and they aren't that good a battery. I don't know how they compare to other rechargeable batteries but they aren't even close to even an ordinary throwaway, let alone a lithium. Nothing elegant about the design. I'm not impressed.
