    Good batteries

    • Written by from Prior Lake

    Like the vast majority of NiMH batteries, these are rated at 1.2 volts, not the 1.5 volts that disposables pack. There are a few rechargables rated 1.5v but they are much more expensive than 1.2v ones.

    I know. This surprised me too when I went shopping for rechargables. But it's what you get from just about every manufacturer.

    Is that a problem? If your use case requires 1.5v, then it would be. But for most uses, including the powering of the peripherals Apple targets them for, 1.2v is a perfectly fine working voltage.

    And, hey, you get 6 batteries. So keep a spare pair charging. It sort of doesn't matter how if you have to replace 12x a year (my experience with my mighty mouse on old fashioned batteries) or 14x or 10x.

    I have these. So far they seem a good job and I would recommend them to people who don't get too freaked about the calibration of the % power meter.

    Works Like a Charm!

    Simply another great product by Apple Inc. looks wonderful with the rest of the minimalistic detail. Excellent charge time and last plenty of time.

    Beware: Batteries dont charge at 100% capacity

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I bought this battery charger, since i had the wireless mouse and keyboard, and the mouse would rip through batteries just like that so i had to keep changing batteries every 4 weeks. So i got this hoping that my problem will be solved and also since it was something that apple makes and i mostly like everything they make. Well when i charged them, it took 5 hours, since the ones that come with it are not charged to full capacity. But even after waiting the 5 hours, i used them and for the keyboard, it was only at 80% and the mouse, at 60%, i do not know why they can not make it to charge at 100%, so that means im going have to keep waiting to keep charging them since they dont charge all the way. Im slightly dissappointed in apple with these batteries. I recommend them but not for those who use their periphals a lot.

    Not Bad, But Not So Great

    • Written by from Pittsford

    I'm trying to go green, even any little bit. And I'm a fan of Apple products (I have lots of them!). But this particular little gem? Well, perhaps not so much. I got it Friday and plugged it in right away. Al i got was the blinking amber light which according to the instructions is either bad batteries or a bad charger. So I went through all six batteries, still got the blinking amber. Then I tried several outlets in my house, still blinking amber. So I called Apple Care and they didn't know what it was they thought I was talking about an iPod charger. So I went to the Apple store and the salesperson was very friendly and helpful, as always. I left with a replaced charger. But when I got home I had the same issues. So I went through every outlet in my house and finally found one where I didn't get the blinking amber and it actually charged all six batteries...woo hoo!!! So, do we have a very finicky product here? Too sensitive perhaps? My house is not old. There's no way all the outlets in my house are bad except one. Everything else has always worked just fine. Maybe this version 1.0 is not ready for prime time. In theory, I love the idea. Hopefully the kinks get worked out.

    Battery Charges to 100%

    Just stuck freshly charged batteries into my trackpad, and it shows 100%. This is the second time at least, that my batteries have charged "fully."

    Meets or Exceeds Expectations - Good Price !!!

    • Written by from Longmont

    I was very happy with this product. It worked as expected. The battery charge lasts a sufficient amount of time - although noticeably shorter than regular batteries. You just need to keep the 3 sets of batteries regularly charged as the batteries will lose their charge if they are just sitting around. For the affordable price - I would suggest getting two - if you have multiple Macs.

    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!

    Battery Charger

    • Written by from Liverpool

    I purchased a Battery charger and I'm reasonably happy only one problem is the design of the charger. I find it a bit difficult to pull the charger out of the wall socket Ideally you could do with a lip on either side of the charger so you have something to grip apart from that it does the job

    Overall great charger

    • Written by from Winnipeg

    I like how compact it is and the quick recharge cycle (I consider 5 hours from empty quick when referring to quality batteries) and that it comes with six batteries. The only thing I don't like is that you can only charge 2 at a time. Since all of my wireless keyboards are the older style that use 4 batteries, when it dies, I will have to go through 2 charge cycles before I can use my keyboard.

    Nice design but poor performance

    • Written by from Granada Hills

    It's a nice, stylish compact unit, but when it comes to the crunch the experience is not so nice. The batteries that come with the charger are pathetic, lasting a lot less time than other rechargeable batteries, meaning you will be continually changing out the batteries in your mouse.

    The charger itself (and I must admit this may be down to the poor quality batteries, I'm not sure of the technical details) does a poor job of charging the batteries, often charging them to an incomplete level. Right out of the box the charger from time to time would give a blinking orange light suggesting the official Apple batteries are incompatible (this is when the batteries are seated correctly).

    In short, chances are you already own a battery charger, and you're thinking about getting this to compliment your Apple products. If that's the case, I'd say: don't bother. Stick with another charger.

    EVERLASTING BATTERIES!

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    i purchased these batteries for my apple wireless keyboard about a month ago, and have been using one pair for almost a month now without ever recharging it. I use the keyboard 3 days a week for about 12 hours non-stop, and I am amazed how long one pair of batteries can last! Was sceptical before buying because many reviews said they don't last, but try it for yourself! They sure do work for me! VERY SATISFIED!!!

    Hey j.b. From winnepeg

    • Written by from Mentor

    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.

    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.

    Looks great, disappointed in the charge

    • Written by from Crandall

    Two stars for a very nice design. But I cant give it any more than that, because it only charges to 87% when placed in the Magic Mouse. They also seem to drain down faster than regular Energizer batteries. For $29 you should expect top notch performance and this charger hasnt delivered.

    Perfect

    • Written by from SAINT LOUIS

    I don't know if I got a good batch or what but I charged and drained all of my batteries at least three time and I get 100% fully charged and my charges last long in my mouse and keyboard. I have to put them in my camera to get them to discharge quickly, but their great.
