    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.

    Save your money!

    • Written by from Fairfield

    I've been using rechargeable AA batteries in my mouse and keyboard for years (The standard Energizer/Duracell type). They come out of the charger, go right into my mouse /keyboard (at about 84-87% battery charge) and then after about 10 days, they go right back into the charger. It is really rare at my use rate that they last any longer than 10 days. It is a hassle, so I decided to see if Apple's attempt was better than the standard.

    My first batteries came out of the charger (after being charged for 24 hours at only 74% battery power and it took 7 tries to get the new batteries into the charger so they would charge without having the flashing Amber light which says that I either have the wrong or damaged batteries-straight out of the box. Not good!

    Save your money and shipping charge and buy the regular Energizers-they hold a bigger charge.

    All Three Battery Pairs Were Defective

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I wanted to love this product, but all three sets of batteries flashed amber after charging them, and once installed in my wireless mouse, only registered about 50% capacity. I will return this product to the Apple Store for another, hoping I can change my assessment.

    Sour Apple

    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.
