    Great Product

    • Written by from Redlands

    I've had this recharger for about nine months now. It does everything it promises to do. It's easy to use (I especially like that both batteries point the same way when they're in the charger), and the charged batteries are right there when you need them.

    Some reviewers have complained that the rechargeable batteries don't show a 100% charge when you check the battery level on the mouse. The Apple FAQ explains that this is due to the voltage differences between standard batteries and the rechargeable batteries, and not a defect in the charger. The batteries are 100% charged when the charger shows "green". Furthermore, I think Apple has corrected this problem in one of the recent OS updates, because my rechargeable batteries now show 100% charge when you check the mouse. I recommend this product without reservation.

    Feel lucky?

    • Written by from Alpharetta

    It is true that the Apple wireless keyboard and Apple magic mouse both show at most 80% battery level with these batteries. It has something to do with the voltage of the rechargeable batteries. That is not a huge deal.
    Here is my issue with this battery charger and batteries.
    After letting a set of batteries charge for a few days, I removed them from the charger, and kept them on my desk, putting another set of batteries in to charge.
    A week later I put the charged batteries that were on my desk in my magic mouse, and it showed only 9% charge left, and I immediately got a low battery warning. Mouse stopped working a day later, and I had to replace the batteries.

    This has occurred several times for me. Now I can occasionally get 40% charge out of them if I charge them right before use. These have only been charged a handful of times a piece and the charger is only about 6 months old. Maybe I just have a bad batch of batteries. Maybe if you buy this you will have better luck. Feel lucky?

    Not so good.

    • Written by from Jacksonville

    I bought these batteries over a year ago and right away my bluetooth manager would report the newly charged batteries to be far below 100%. As a result, the charge would not last nearly as long as with other batteries. Thankfully, apple keyboards and mice don't seem to use much juice, so these batteries were still usable. However, I just went to charge a set of batteries and sparks were flying out of the back of the charger and now it altogether doesn't work. Poor product for sure. Seeing that I can't charge apple batteries in any other charger these are useless so I grabbed some of my energizer rechargeable batteries and they show up close to 100%. I plan to recycle these batteries and go buy a few more energizer packs (which have always worked great with my xbox controllers). Do yourself a favor and avoid these.

    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.

    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.

    Bit Disappointed

    • Written by from Kitchener

    I purchased 2 of these because unfortunately for me my blue tooth keyboard is the older one which requires 3 batteries, and not 2, so I needed the extra pack. What I don't understand is why the batteries don't charge to 100% I only seem to be able to get about 80% if not less. This is applicable to both the batteries going into the keyboard, trackpad and mouse. Looks like the Energize batteries are a better option, for me at least.

    All chrome and no guts

    • Written by from auckland

    I like Apple jiggers but this is craap. I let the batteries charge until the green light went out & then some. Mouse preferences said 100% charge but with normal use they went flat much quicker than alkaline and NiCads I have used. This was experienced with each of the 3 pairs even after numerous cycles. Changed to eneloop with great results. Stick to computers Mr Apple. (1 * only because its pretty.)

    Gets hot....

    • Written by from Marietta

    The form is nice but doesn't seem to charge any quicker or hold the charge longer than my Panasonic rechargeables. And the charger can get very warm when it's in use.

    Seems you're paying for form over content! And the brand, of course.

    Hey j.b. From winnepeg

    How are you able to determine if the charge lasts a long time when you wrote your review on the same day you bought it? Please be honest with your reviews.

    This product is one of the few let downs i have experienced with an apple product. Batteries do not fit properly and after four charge cycles my battwries no longer hold a charge for more than several days. Very dissapointed.

    Very short lifetime

    • Written by from Oregon

    Pros: The batteries it comes with are high capacity, they last a lot longer than normal batteries out of the box and after a few charges.
    Cons: After a couple months of charging both Apple's NiMH and some other brand NiMH batteries, the charger always just flashes orange and doesn't charge any batteries at all. This happened to me twice. Because of this, I cannot recommend buying this charger.

    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.

    6 Batteries and a Charger for $29.99 is a great price for anyone that wants to get rechargeable battery pack. Others would cost more than this great deal.If you don't have these I recommend you to get them!

    POOR QUALITY

    • Written by from Clark

    I bought the Magic Trackpad and love it. I bought the Battery Charger and an extra set of batteries for the Trackpad, and the Charger would not charge either set of batteries after a couple of uses. I returned the Charger and the extra batteries to my local Apple Store, and the Store replaced the Charger and extra batteries with new ones. The new Charger and batteries stopped charging after several uses. I'm switching to Duracell.

    A Must-Have for iMac Users

    • Written by from River Ridge

    If you have (or are purchasing) an iMac, then you should absolutely get this battery charger. It pays for itself quickly and many times over... once I forgot mine at a friend's house and was reminded how painful it is to shell out for AA's at the nearby convenience store.

    Sleek, simple, straightforward, and inexpensive. What more can you ask for?

    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.

    • Written by from NEWBURY PARK

    It is a good buy. I've had it for more then 2 weeks and it is great!. But I don't know how Apple gets away with the price of 29.99. But I think it is worth it because when you need a charged pair of batteries you know that you have batteries that you trust.

    Works as described.

    • Written by from Fort worth

    You do not have to use the batteries in only Apple products. They are work perfectly fine in my non-Apple branded computer mice and they keep a charge for quite a while. Compared to other AA batter charger packaged deals, this one is actually quite competitive in price. It serves its function well, so I recommend this product.
