    Disappointing product

    • Written by from Mumbai

    Quirky charger, batteries that discharge when just sitting idle. I bought three sets and all of the chargers are not working anymore. The yellow light keeps flashing.
    Very disappointing product for an Apple.

    bad batteries

    • Written by from Yorba Linda

    Doesn't hold charge! I should have read more comments before i bought this.

    My keyboard is at 73% fully charges and mouse was at 80%. I have a 2009 iMac and I use 3 AA batteries for my keyboard and 2 for my mouse. Since I Bought them yesterday, my mouse is now at 60% in one day and I didn't really use it that much. Got home around 4pm, charged them and it is now 10:45 the following day and its slowly dying!

    The Only positive thing is there is no restocking fee! Im returning them and trying duracell or something.

    Big disappointment

    Battery charge down to 50% after 4 days of light usage of about 3 to 4 hours a day.

    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.

    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.

    Works fine, until ...

    • Written by from Edmonton

    Had this product for about a year -- things were great. But as other users have commented the batteries themselves are awful! They all stopped working at pretty much the same time. Won't be picking up another one of these.

    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.

    Does not hold a charge

    • Written by from Seattle

    Overall ratings seem high for this product, so perhaps the pack I received is faulty, but I experience significant battery drain when the batteries are sitting unused. I use 2 batteries in an Apple wireless mouse, 2 batteries in an Apple wireless keyboard and keep the last 2 charged and on hand to swap out with the first wireless device that goes down. The unused batteries went down from (presumably) 100% to 55% from the time they were charged to when they were swapped with my mouse (about a week's time). Either (1) the charger is indicating a full charge when it is actually incomplete or (2) the batteries do not hold a charge when sitting unused. Either way, from my experience, I could not recommend these over other rechargeables.

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT

    • Written by from Edgewater

    Positive: looks good, charges fast, sleek design and small.
    Negative: you never get 100% charge on the batteries, on average a fully charged battery shows on mouse around 80%, batteries drain very fast.
    A charger with good batteries doesn't need to look good, first it should be able to perform its main task and this one is not even close of doing it.
    Do not spend your money on this charger.

    Not Worth Using

    • Written by from KAILUA KONA

    The alkaline batteries that came with my track pad lasted two months. I can't get the batteries that come with this package to last more than four days in the same device with the same usage habits!

    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.)

    Charger stopped working 4 months after purchase

    • Written by from Portland

    When it actually worked, batteries charged quickly and held charge. Then the charger stopped charging after 4 months. Next stop, Amazon.

    Charger works, batteries are nearly useless!

    • Written by from Lakeside

    The charger fills the batteries in just a couple hours, the problem is that just letting them sit on the counter they loose charge in just a couple days. In the mouse mine have lost up to 30% charge in one day just by sitting, even turned off. Maybe I just got six bad batteries, but I doubt it. I'd recommend looking for better batteries instead.

    No Power

    • Written by from Harmony

    These batteries don't fully charge even when left in charger overnight. I haven't gotten more than 79% value for my mouse. Also, in three days my mouse went down to 47%. Is this really Eco friendly?

    Disappointing level of charge maintained

    • Written by from Medway

    After my corded mouse finally went to heaven I had little choice but to move to wireless. My new magic mouse has performed satisfactorily so far - but it is the rate at which it eats battery charge that's unreasonable.

    The design of the charger is excellent. It is the quality I have to question.

    My local Apple store and a premium reseller in the same vicinity both told me they had three months usage from the Apple Charger and its batteries. On the strength of this I purchased but the actual performance has proved far from the quoted time scale.

    After two or three charges I began to carefully mark the batteries to determine if particular ones were less powerful than others; I achieved a quite remarkable unanimity of performance.

    BETWEEN EIGHT AND TEN DAYS FROM 100% TO JUST UNDER 10%.

    I've also tried 2 sets of Duracell premium batteries. Their performance was slightly but not markedly worse.

    I have an Apple iMac mid 2007 running Snow Leopard. I use my computer for about 3 hours per day and my average monthly bandwidth usage is less than 4GB. As a machine it has been excellent and I have no reason to think it is draining the battery due to any technical malfunction.

    All in all it comes back to the charger and batteries. They meet less than 20% of the estimated performance, a figure that in some countries would give grounds for a charge of misrepresentation. I don't think like that - but I am very disappointed.

    Stopped Working

    • Written by from Highlands Ranch

    This little charger was great at first, but after about 3 cycles through the included batteries, it stopped working. The light never comes on, the batteries never charge. I have had to resort to using a larger wall charger that came with some Eneloop batters I purchased to charge these. Turns out I paid a lot, for nothing but rechargeable batteries.

    Doesn't charge two batteries at the same time anymore

    • Written by from Ontario

    I bought mine with my Magic Trackpad and charged up all my batteries back then. Now that the batteries supplied with the trackpad are low, I figured I'd top off my rechargeables and stick a pair in.

    …as it turns out, I can't put any pair of Apple-supplied batteries into my charger without getting the blinking orange light, and some batteries appear to prefer one charging slot over another.

    Batteries never fully charge

    • Written by from Singapore

    Batteries never recharge to their maximum or don't recharge at all, despite the light going from orange to green. Very poor.
