      Charges a little slowly but works fine - and has done for over 1 yr

      No problems here. The batteries charge up a bit slower than normal rechargeables in a charger, but it's generally easiest to just leave the keyboard/trackpa No problems here. The batteries charge up a bit slower than normal rechargeables in a charger, but it's generally easiest to just leave the keyboard/trackpad in the bar overnight. Alternating between the trackpad and keyboard keeps both fine - they'll hold the charge for days. And yes, you can buy a battery only separately both from the Mac shop (online but not in-store) and from Mobee so as to use one Magic Bar for both Keyboard and Trackpad. Don't however rely on the % shown in the Bluetooth info bar, especially not for the Trackpad. It never indicates a higher % than the charge (so you shouldn't get caught out), but won't refresh properly for the Trackpad unless you remove the fully-charged battery and replace it. This doesn't seem to be a problem for the keyboard, so appears to be some sort of glitch on the Mac end (this on a 2011 iMac). And, lastly, yes, you do need to bear in mind it only works with the newer (2 battery) wireless keyboards.

      Not a great product

      Personally I haven't had a good experience with the product, I appreciate that rechargeable batteries don't tend to last as long as conventional but the wireles Personally I haven't had a good experience with the product, I appreciate that rechargeable batteries don't tend to last as long as conventional but the wireless rechargeable battery that comes with the Mobee Magic Bar doesn't even compete with my normal rechargeable batteries. My normal rechargeable batteries last for a few weeks while I can't seem to make this last more than a few days and it's not heavily used as it's for my media centre and not a desktop that I use daily.

      Don't buy it if you have the 3-battery bluetooth keyboard

      IT DOESN'T FIT. Not only is the battery pack only 2 cells long, it does not lock shut into the keyboard.
