    It is what it is

    • Written by from New York

    I can't say I 'hate" the charger, but there are times when it inconveniently disconnects from my iMac's bluetooth. Usually if I just need to move the mouse, and it reconnects; I've noticed that this issue comes in waves. There can be several weeks with no problems and then suddenly it will disconnect/connect several times a day. I've had my Mobee charger with the same Magic Mouse now for 3 years (at least that, but probably more), so I cannot speak to its dying after a year's use.
    If the disconnect/connect problem was solved, I'd give if 5 stars.

    too short life span for the price

    • Written by from Prague 10 - Strasnice

    It is a really nice gadget. If only it lasted longer. At first it was awsome. But after a few months the batteries started to inflate themselves a bit. Not much but it was noticable and you could see and feel a slight bump at the bottom of magic mouse. The recharging frequence changed from weeks to days. Also the bateries started being unreliable. It happened quite often that magic mouse suddenly disconnected several times in a short period even when batteries were fully charged. I had to stop using the product and switch back to regular batteries and the issues have completely stopped. With regular batteries magic mouse is perfectly stable and seldom disconnecting starts happening only when batteries are close to 6% which is understandable. I am sorry to say but I cannot recommend the product unless you plan to use it for a few months only.

    Short Lifespan

    • Written by from Lawrenceville

    I really loved the Mobee Magic Charger and recommended it frequently. Then just over a year, it died. The battery pack started having issues connecting, then it simply stopped taking a charge. I figured that I may not have been charging it correctly or something, so I bought another one. Just after a year, the exact same thing. And I started hearing from folks that purchased it on my recommendation that they too, had almost the exact same issue. Now I just keep a battery charger loaded with AA batteries next to my desk and swap out as necessary.

    Although I really loved the product, until they do some SERIOUS work on the quality of the product, i will not buy again, nor will I recommend it to anyone.

    Works perfectly... until it doesnt

    • Written by from Montreal

    Unlike a lot of reviewers, I got 2 years of use from the battery pack until it stopped keeping a charge.
    In the beginning the battery was good for a week or more and i did not run into any problems.
    Now the battery lasts a day before needing to be charged. So it can be quite frustrating, as i'm using my mouse 8 or more hours per day.

    Another great human invention on the top of the trashhill

    • Written by from Sopron

    I bought it in a purpose of saving the environment, but the quality of this product not allowed it. The cable they gave, had a connection problem after few month, and after like 1year i had to throw out the other piece, because the batteries inside were dead.

    Have to recharge every 30 minutes

    • Written by from LONDON

    My office have bought 3 Mobee chargers as being designers we tend to get clicky happy so thought having to buy batteries all the time would be too expensive in the long run. At first they were great then 3 months down the line one of the chargers just kept losing connection and the battery would be dead after an hour of use. Now a year later and all 3 chargers keep losing connection that we have to keep an old wired mouse connected just for when the magic mouse recharges. I usually recharge for about an hour and then start using it again until it dies. But it shouldn't be like this because all 3 are charged fully over night and show 100% when first using it. One hour later they are dead again. 2 were bought at the same time and the third a while after so they aren't from the same batch.

    Works like a charm

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I've had this charger for a couple years now and have never experienced any issues. It's been great to not have to swap out batteries. Sometimes it takes me a try or two in order to get the mouse in the right spot to charge but it's not a big deal. And the light turns green when you hit the right spot so you always know right away.

    THE WORST product I have ever bought -

    • Written by from Eldred

    Do not waste your money on this piece of #$%^. I am on my second charger in less than one year.... It dies when it is charged at 57% (in my case)... I dont know what type of batteries this company uses but they do not last, no matter what they tell you. At this point, after much frustration and charging on a daily basis, I am seriously thinking about getting a connected mouse. I am just so fed up with this product. And the company does not stand behind it. You can write all you want and nobody will make a move to replace or even contact you back. If I could give a rating of no star, I would.

    • Written by from Sylmar

    SO i don't write too many reviews but I use to go thru batteries like crazy! Now with the Mobee i just place it on the pad and it charges away. Awesome product! I would definitley recommend if you go thru batteries on your mouse. Still debating on whether to get the keyboard version

    Fantastic...cannot recommend highly enough

    • Written by from Sarnia

    I bought a second one as the first one I had for my MacPro was so good.

    I will never have to buy another mouse battery again. No more frustration when the battery runs out mid-urgent-job and I have to go find new ones.

    Simply place your mouse on the charging pad when you've finished work, and it'll be ready for another 12 hour day in the morning.

    Anyone who says these don't work is just plain wrong. They're fantastic. I've ordered three for work now, and am thinking of replacing my two other wired mouses (mice?) at home for magic mouses (mice?) and Mobees. They're just that good.

    Only to Help Nature... Rubbish battery! If you do not mind having to recharge every two days or less... went to waste in less than 6 months.

    Poor Product matches their customer service!

    • Written by from Midland

    I purchased 15 of these for my department and have had endless problems, bluetooth connection drops, poor fitting batteries, and to top it off when I contacted Mobee they don't honour their warranty for defective product.

    So as a company that promotes themselves as a "green company", there is nothing green about producing product that simply end up in a landfill site.

    Disappointing, to say the least!

    waste of money!!!!!

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    It sounds great and looks great but it does not work. It is the most frustrating product I have ever bought from Apple.

    Every few minutes it loses the connection to the computer and it never gets fully charged no matter how long I leave it on the charging station. I wished I returned it.

    Don't make the same mistake I did. Does not work as promised and you will lose valuable work time reconnecting the mouse over and over again.

    I have issues with this product on two fronts. First of all, the battery won't hold it's charge. With just a few months of use I find if I charge the mouse overnight to 100%, it will be down to 75% within a couple of hours of use. Usually, by the end of each day I am getting the pop up warning of low battery charge on the mouse. It's not like I am using the computer all day long so this is really just unacceptable.

    The other, most irritating issue is bluetooth connectivity. From the onset, I have had problems with the mouse loosing its bluetooth connection. It happens frequently and, commonly, in threes. By that I mean the mouse will lose connection three times in a row before it will start working again. If I'm lucky, it will behave for an hour or so but sometimes I fight with the mouse continually. Sadly, it seems to be getting worse so I think this Mobee charger is not long for this world.

    Not a quality product.

    CAUTION: Disconnection Issues, returned to rechargeable batteries

    • Written by from O Fallon

    After about a month of use, the Mobee Magic Charger began to cause issues with Bluetooth connectivity. After searching through the Apple forums and trying all the solutions to keep my Magic Mouse connected, and none of them fixing the issue while continuing to use Mobee, I simply took the Mobee battery pack off the mouse and returned to using rechargeable batteries, and have had no issues with connectivity since. Perhaps this is a glitch with my particular unit (given all the glowing reviews here) but regardless, if it's an issue for one, it's probably an issue for many. Proceed with this caution in mind.

Now.. no more batteries... always charged.. always great! Thank you Mobee!!!! MAGIC charger for the MAGIC mouse!

    Mobee Magic Charger Stopped Working Properly

    • Written by from Beverly Hills

    Hello everyone,

    I recently noticed that my Magic Mouse was "ghosting" and not providing the pinpointed accuracy I was used to. I took out my Mobee Magic Charger battery and replaced it with some standard AA batteries. So far I have seen a dramatic improvement in the response from the mouse. I'm wondering why Apple keeps a product like this in their inventory when there are so many bad reviews.

    Day one review

    • Written by from Grove City

    I like the idea of not having to change/charge the batteries! That is the only reason that I bought this, to make life just a tad bit easier. There is only one concern. The battery pack doesn't sit completely flush in the mouse. I can see rub marks on the aluminum battery pack from my desk. It is almost like it is bowed out just a bit because it is such a tight fit. Other than that day one is great.
