    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.

    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.

    Have been very satisfied so far!

    • Written by from Hollywood

    Compact, elegant, efficient, and practical! And I love the feature that allows you to charge only one battery at a time!

    cool little charger

    • Written by from Warner Robins

    I go way back with rechargeable batteries and have had mixed results with them. One thing i have learned is that they "remember everything" and you only get one chance to abuse them. With that i mean don't discharge them fully or they may reverse polarity, don't short circuit put them in some device which draws more current than they are designed for and under no circumstances leave them on charge forever because while the manufacturers intend this practice to "maintain" charge, what it in the ends up doing is shortening the lifespan. A rechargeable NMH or Li will show aslight "peak" in voltage just prior to (under a given discharge rate) it's beginning to fall off, for the most part this occurs around 30% or .8VDC (assuming a 1.25V cell) if you plot the terminal voltage verses remaining charge current. What this means is that if you recharge these little things whenever convenient, somewhere between 25 and 35% ond only until the indicator has chaged from amber to green (don't wait for it to turn off) these should last for many, many, many cycles. I hope this helps.

    Very Compact & Brilliant

    It is very compact. It is less in weight when compare to other rechargeable batteries. Charges in 5-6 hrs.

    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.

    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...

    please please sell batteries separately

    • Written by from Sausalito

    This battery charger combo is the best I've ever used... And I've used a ton of them.

    I would love to buy 20 or so extra batteries - I'm going broke buying the combos.

    Cheers

    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.

    Excellent peformance and price !

    • Written by from Vancouver

    Along with 6 more NiMh batteries supplied with this unit, it seemed to breathe new life into some older Ni-Mh 'AA' batteries I had lying around. Charges quickly with an informative, 3 color LED indicator.

    Good Value for the money!

    Powerful & High Quality

    • Written by from wotton under edge

    This is another perfect product from apple.

    The reason the batteries don't charge to 100% but instead to abut 80% is so the batteries last longer..!

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Silver Spring

    The charger is a great idea, small and doesn't use much juice when the batteries are charged up.
    But I'm seriously disappointed in the quality of the product. The third time I wanted to recharge, the amber light is just flashing and the batteries won't charge. Nothing has changed on the batteries or the charger, it just stopped working. $30 wasted :(

    Convenient, but seem defective. Won't charge to 100%.

    • Written by from Springfield

    I love the convenience of Apple rechargeable batteries, but they seem defective. The batteries are used between 2 of us at work. 1 Magic Mouse and 1 Mighty Mouse. 1st set of batteries wouldn't charge more than 50%. Apple sent a replacement that arrived the next day. These are slightly better, but when you check the battery level in your Bluetooth menu at the top it still reads about 80% full after a full 24 hour charge and after a charge when the green charge light turns off. We still use them because, aside from not getting a full charge, they work great.

    Exceptional Battery & Charger

    • Written by from Reston

    I've used the rechargeable batteries for about 6 months and they work exactly as advertised. The AA batteries hold a charge longer than I expected under normal use and recharge very quickly. The long term cost savings over disposable AA batteries is noticeable. I would definitely recommend the battery charger for anyone who uses AA batteries - so everyone!

    Stopped Working

    • Written by from Highlands Ranch

    This little charger was great at first, but after about 3 cycles through the included batteries, it stopped working. The light never comes on, the batteries never charge. I have had to resort to using a larger wall charger that came with some Eneloop batters I purchased to charge these. Turns out I paid a lot, for nothing but rechargeable batteries.

    No problems yet.

    • Written by from Muncie

    After reading a bunch of the lower-rated reviews, I was hesitant to buy this. Still, I knew it had to be better than the Canon battery charger I've been using, which throws a small spark every time I plug it in.

    I've charged all 6 batteries and 4 of them are in my Magic Trackpad and wireless keyboard. The other 2 are resting in the charger. People had complained that these things didn't work out of the box or didn't show a full charge when put in their devices. Not the case here. They work just fine and show a full charge.
