    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.

    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.

    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.

    Far better able to keep a charge than those NiCads on the hardware store market.

    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.

    Battery charger

    • Written by

    This Apple product looks really good and the concept is cool. But, the real catch is when it comes to charging, all the 6 of the batteries need a very frequent charging as they get discharged too soon. The indicator turns green showing that the battery charge is full, but when I put them into my mouse and start using it shows 93%. As and when I use the batteries they get discharged soon without much long usage.

    Light would not stop blinking

    • Written by from Oak Park

    I purchased this charger from the apple store because I have a wireless mouse. However, only one set of batteries would fully charge. When the other batteries were placed in the charger, the light would not stop blinking and they would not charge.

    This product is visually elegant, but not up to Apple quality standards. I was able to return the charger to the store however, I really wish that it had worked.

    Useful charger!

    • Written by from Calabasas

    Charger is small and compact, and can charge one or two batteries at once. I will admit, sometimes the batteries that come with it are faulty, but the actual charger is great! If you get faulty batteries, go buy some other rechargeable ones.

    Strangely, my magic mouse shows it's at 100%, when most people have claimed that it goes up to 82% or around there. So far, only two batteries are being used, so I'm not sure if the others will work, but so far, it seems to look like it'll all work out. Thanks Apple.

    Very Dissapointed

    • Written by from Grand Forks

    Who would have thought that in the 21st century a company like Apple couldn't make a decent battery charger. It sounds like a good investment for those of us with wireless keyboards and mice, but I have never had a battery of the charger after being charged for days that had an energy reading above 50%. I expected more from Apple, I'm not sure what other brands of battery chargers are out there but they're probably worth exploring. Don't let the Apple branding on this fool you, try another option.

    Simple and Elegant

    • Written by from Huntington

    I know it's just a battery charger, but the build quality is nice. I like the fact you can use your laptop cord to plug in. With a Magic Mouse, wireless keyboard and trackpad the six batteries are handy. Silly not to have one.

    Great battery charger

    • Written by from waterford

    The Apple battery charger is magnificent for a number of reasons :
    1. It's small and very easily portable
    2. The Batteries it comes with have a 10 year lifespan -double the industry standard!
    3.It comes with 6 batteries, while most battery chargers will only come with 4 AA batteries.
    4. The packaging is minimal - great for the environment and make the box smaller.
    5. The battery compartment is magnetic- prevents batteries from slipping out if they're not completely in the charger.
    6. It can charge one battery if you only need to charge one battery- most battery chargers will only charge pairs of batteries together.

    The only problem is that it only charges AA batteries. I wish Apple made an adapter so that the Apple Battery charger could be used to charge AAA batteries.

    Finally Apple Mouse can ROCK with these ;-)

    • Written by from Waterford

    I've been quite confused before ordering these, but they make the difference for Apple things at least. Now my Apple Mouse is thriving and power levels are dropping very slowly - so I guess it's not the mouse that drains most energy, but the common batteries tend to drain themselves pretty quickly (I've tried common alkalines and basic rechargeables and both of them lasted very shortly - a week or two).
    I would recommend these for any Apple Mouse you have, it will be worth it - my power level is dropping like 0.5%-1% per day, so I am expecting at least 3 months for the first pair...

    New charger

    • Written by from Greenford

    Bought the charger today, fitted in two of the batteries to charge, amber light kept flashing to say something is wrong..... great start!! tried again and again and eventually the light stayed amber.. same thing happened with the remaining four batteries amber light flash's to indicate a fault, anyway fitted two in my keyboard and two in the mouse the remaining two will be for the magic trackpad.

    Keyboard shows 89% charge mouse shows 86% now just have to wait and see how long they last, at least I won't have to buy some more AA's for a while...
