    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.

    Not worthy of the Apple name

    • Written by from DAYTONA BEACH

    Very disappointed. I purchased the charger after listening to the Sales pitch from the Best Buy Apple rep. After 6 weeks, the batteries in my mighty mouse died. I expected more than that out of the batteries. Regular batteries last about three months. I returned it and exchanged it for another. I gave it one month and this new one did the same thing. After 4 weeks, the batteries died. I will be returning this to the store with hopes of getting my money back. What a shame. It seemed too good to be true and it was. I expected more out of an Apple product. I noticed that everyone either absolutely LOVED this product or absolutely DISLIKED it. I'm sad to say I'm in the latter group. Please work harder, Apple, on improving this.

    Love it!

    • Written by from Rockford

    I have had this charger since the fall of 2010 and have found it to be reliable and a great asset for my all my electronic needs. It charges quite quickly and the compact design makes it easy to take with me on the road. There are some batteries that are not compatible with it, but I mostly use the batteries that came with it so that usually is not a problem. When the batteries that came with the charger eventually fail then I will make sure the batteries I buy to replace them are compatible with the charger. It does not take a degree to figure that out as some seem to suggest. Great product.

    Same Batteries=2 months

    • Written by from Saint Louis

    I've been testing the battery life, initially I would only get 2 weeks out of them with daily usage in my magic mouse and apple wireless keyboard. Now after a few charges I just got 2 months out of the mouse and a little over a month out of the keyboard and I must say i use them both with my MBP and my iPad often

    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.

    I had High Hopes but was Let Down . . . :(

    • Written by from Mankato

    I really hoped that I would get a reliable battery charger from Apple but it failed after only a few charges. It is still under Warranty but what a hassle to have to send it back.
    First of all it doesn't work well with ALL brands. I have 4 different brands and some flash orange ~ meaning not charging/not compatible?
    Then when I went to charge the Apple batteries that came with it and found only one side of the charger works. Good thing I have a battery tester so I can figure out which battery has a charge.
    Nice design, very compact but not the Quality I expected. :(

    Why not...

    • Written by from SACRAMENTO

    I love the feature my only regret is they don't offer more batteries you can purchase in addition to the set. it works great and I love them. I use them for my magic mouse and other things I have around the house.

    They charge very quickly, and I love the light on the charger lets you know from afar if its good to go.

    NOT Junk!

    • Written by from Winnipeg

    Well I sashayed down to the Apple Store today and bought this. It does what it's supposed to, takes up practically no room unlike most other chargers out there that take up half the desk, and just holding it I can feel the quality. You can tell it's definitely not junk. Even the batteries that come with it are nice and elegantly designed. And the charge lasts a LONG time to boot! Where else can you buy beautiful batteries but at Apple?! I recommend this thing for sure!

    Apple Battery Charger

    • Written by from Manhattan

    Works good. Batteries seem to last several months in Keyboard and Mouse, and I use the computer at work all day. I do not turn off the mouse and keyboard at night, I just put the computer to sleep.

    Pro: batteries hold charge for quite awhile when not in device, so are ready to use. Attractive and small charger. Compact packaging.

    Cons: charger should hold 4 batteries at a time and you should get 8 batteries so you can use 4 and charge 4. Other chargers I have, that are similar, the lights flash when charging, when they are charged lights stop flashing. This one the light turns amber to green when finished charging. I am color blind so can't tell when it turns to green. Or if it is green and they are charged when I put them in.

    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.

    Not a full charge but good enough

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    I understand that people have been complaining about not getting a full charge out of these batteries. Understandable. When I charged them I got about 80% of a full charge. Also they seem to discharge fairly quickly (Lost 5% of a charge in half a day). We'll see how they last over time, but they are good enough for now, considering I can recharge them and don't have to throw them away.

    Recharge Batteries and Regular Batteries not the same

    • Written by from Mayer

    Most of the reviews I read all seem to say they don't get a full charge, but you are. Rechargeable AA batteries have 1.2 Volts and Regular AA's have 1.5 Volts. That is why they never will show a full charge on the meter.

    Batteries never fully recharge

    • Written by from Milwaukie

    I seem to be having the same problem that many others are having with this product.

    I've been using my Apple Battery Charger for 3 months, have had to recharge the batteries many times, and they never recharge to more than 75%. Yesterday I recharged the mouse batteries until the light turned green (it took a few hours), and today I got the little warning window that my mouse batteries are LOW. It's showing 10% power today after doing a full recharge yesterday.

    I'm really disappointed in this product. Seems like a good idea but in reality, it's just not practical to have to recharge these batteries as often as this product requires.

    Poor Charge

    • Written by from Cottonwood

    Like others I thought this was a good idea. Not. It does show 100% charge, but not for long. I've had the iMac + charger & batteries since early December and have had to change the mouse 4 times. The keyboard is still at about 35%. The 4th time I changed batteries on the mouse I used Duracell regular batteries and after 3 days it still 100%. Apple batteries would be about 80%. I'll wait to change the keyboard until it's lower to see if the regular batteries will be better. This is only good if you run out of regular batteries, at least it's a backup.
