    Great Looking, poor battery

    • Written by from Fresno

    I bought the batteries and charger for my wireless keyboard and magic mouse and they worked well at first but now won't charge past 68%. I guess it doesn't matter too much because as they drain I can just charge them again, but I would like them to charge to 100%.

    Full Charge = 62% on new mouse = disappointing.

    • Written by from Middletown

    bought a new 27" iMac. bought the new apple battery charger at the same time. plugged it in, charged up the batteries until the energizer batteries died in the new mouse. put the new fresh recharged batteries in the mouse and it says it is at 62% charge. kind of disappointing.

    i do have to say though, for a mundane item like a battery charger the design is very nice. the specs say it has a green power saving mode which is also very good, no vampire power sucking. but still, it only charged the batteries to 62%. it does come with 3 sets of batteries and i haven't gone through and charged them all yet - but i will do that now that the first round only provides 62% life.

    could it be faulty batteries? maybe a less-cool looking charger that has been around longer would deliver a reliable 100% charge.

    I like it.

    I like it. It's not a bulky charger. So far, works well. I just use the batteries for my magic mouse.

    Great product, compact, and charges fast

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I got the apple battery charger yesterday and so far its great. I plugged it in and the batteries charges within about 3 and a half hours. Plus you can use it with other devices that use AA batteries. Recommended buy if your looking for a Battery charger.

    Sleek and sexy design

    • Written by from Singapore

    Just received my new Apple Battery Charger. On first full charge it show's 92%, so i let it charge more. After that i tried on my magic mouse, it show's only 85%. Not sure if it's normal but the product is sleek and sexy.

    Does not work well in my mouse.

    • Written by from Mars

    Fully charged, these batteries only register 85% at most, in my mouse. I used the mouse editing pictures for about an hour and the % was down to 73%. I don't think that these batteries work very well in my mouse at least. I have a 1 month old 21.5" IMac with the I3 chip.
    The batteries that came with the mouse were regular Energizer Alkalines and they lasted the full month and were down to 25% when I changed to the rechargeables. I am going back to Alkaline batteries.

    Not impressed

    • Written by from Auburn

    I like the design and thought it's from Apple, must be good. But it doesn't charges the batteries full, 70% is the maximum I get. Disappointing, the charger should look good AND charge.

    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.

    Great charger!

    • Written by from Montreal

    Great Apple-quality product. Comes with 6 batteries which makes it a really good deal for the money. What I really like is that it works with the Apple Travel Kit, so it's very easy to charge your batteries when you're overseas! Not to mention it looks slick!

    Blinking Charging light fix & Review.

    • Written by from NEWTOWN

    This is how you can fix the blinking light. Simply leave it plugged in and take each one of the batteries out, then place them back in. Hope it works for you like it did for me. Here is my review on the product, This is the slimmest battery charger I have ever owned and it's probably the only one the that works. It's easy to bring this anywhere with hardly taking up any space. It gives a nice long charge but will defiantly be slightly less then any non-rechageable battery, (But you can recharge them so it's not like it matters...) I would say 4.5 out of a possible 5.

    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.

    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.

    Not impressed at all

    • Written by from RESTON

    all 6 batteries when used in my Magic mouse or wireless keyboard lose the bluetooth connection and only ever read 72% as max charge, also have repeatable issues with batteries not seating correctly in the charger - cheap product - can't say I recommend it.

    Sleek and extremely useful... Like everything else from Apple!

    • Written by from Plano

    I couldn't wait to get my hands on one of these. It works wonderfully, charges quickly, and is the best companion to my new i7 iMac. I was really glad it came with six batteries; Two for the keyboard, two for the Magic Mouse, and two for my Magic Trackpad.

    I would like to point out to those who underrate this product that rechargeable are not like regular batteries, in that they're not as powerful. These are low output rechargeables, so they will not read as 100%. Please remember to also use the battery until dead, then recharge, to condition the battery and maximize it's charge!

    Seemed like a great idea, but...

    • Written by from Mobile

    It seems that as soon as I install these (after a full charge) they only show a level of about 70-75% on my Magic Mouse or Keyboard. They also don't seem to last nearly as long as regular Energizer/Duracell type batteries. I guess that's the price you pay for saving a few bucks on disposable batteries.
