    It is useless

    • Written by from Bern

    I bought this without checking the reviews - what a mistake. I opened up the package and left the battery to charge on the very attractive desk station. After about five hours I inserted it into my magic mouse - not an easy step, the plastic housing is very very fragile and bends so easily. Got it in OK, then the mouse would not switch on. The battery was charged (full green LED on station). So, struggled to get it out as the housing is not a good fit to the mouse. Read the various support forum advice from Mobee - was no help. Inserted again - again no power on the mouse when I switched it on.

    Then, I read all the reviews here and found that once the power was working then many people had problems with the BT link not being stable.

    Decided to take it back and I bought a set of rechargeable batteries.

    Disappointing - the idea is great, execution does not work.

    We went through two of these trying to make them work. The battery pack that replaces the actual batteries doesnt fit right. If you push it all the way in so that it is flush with the bottom of the mouse, the Mobee battery won't work. You have to pull it out just a touch for it to connect. The problem is when you are mousing you eventually put downward pressure on the mouse which then pushes the battery back into the flush position cutting power. We tried this with two different Mobees and three different Magic Mice. Same problem with every combination. It's not the mice or one bad unit. It's the Mobee design. It is off about an 1/8th of an inch. We contacted the manufacturer and no response. They are in a dump somewhere. Be cautious buying this product.

    Not charging

    It's sleek and a great idea, but after only a week mine does not charge at all. the light stays red. I tried disconnecting and connecting again, tried changing usb ports, tried connecting directly to wall charger...nothing!

    Complete Flop

    • Written by from London

    I purchased this as a gift. The Mobee backing/battery pack was difficult to install properly, and once installed and charged up, it did not respond with the magic mouse. Additionally, removing the battery pack and backing was impossible. I had to bring the whole mouse into an Apple store where they were able to (thankfully) remove it.

    This product is a good idea in theory, but does not fit well into the magic mouse and does not power the mouse properly. Also - once installed, the mouse doesn't actually rest in the cradle properly either.

    I returned the product and was very disappointed in this product and wouldn't recommend it.

    Pain in the

    • Written by from Eureka

    Worked well when it worked. (give it 5 stars for that) Mine died after 4 months. No customer service number to reach Mobee. Have to send in "work order ticket" via email. Two days later got a response. If I had known what a hassle it would be I would have saved my money for regular batteries.

    This product is a dog...I'm so disappointed in Apple promoting it

    • Written by from cary

    Advice...don't buy this product. Doesn't fit well on mouse..warps.

    If you buy this make sure you have another mouse to take over while you charge the unit. Otherwise, your MAC will freeze and/or need to be rebooted (losing your open files).

    This is a solve for an issue that is not significant. I run rechargeable batteries and always have a set charging...a better pathway.

    Battery pack does not fit!

    • Written by from Westcliff on Sea

    Having waited a week for delivery, I set up the new charger unit yesterday and replaced the batteries with the rechargebale pack.

    Getting it into the base of the mouse, I realised the fit was poor. It is!

    The mouse is unusable, as the battery pack is protruding from the base and also does not correctly fit around the on/off switch.

    It's going back to Apple. I am amazed this product has been allowed onto the market, if the machining tolerances can't be controlled.

    Extremely Disappointed!

    • Written by from Mississauga

    The concept and the look of the Magic Charger is great but only if it works. I charged the a battery overnight, installed it but the mouse didn't work. What made the situation more frustrating was removing the battery from the mouse. The battery fits too "perfectly" inside the mouse which it makes it very difficult to remove it afterward. I took it to an Apple store and they too couldn't take it off. Because it's a third party accessory, Apple will not take responsibility for the product even though I bought it off their website. I emailed Mobee and they gave me a tip on removing it but that didn't work either. In the end, I was able to pry it open (with extreme care!) with a small pocket knife and thank god, I didn't damage the mouse. To say I'm disappointed with the whole experience is an understatement.

    Not to be so negative, I am extremely satisfied and having fun with my first iMac purchase ever.

    I took the battery pack out of the box, tried to put it into the mouse, and PRESTO!! The thing broke. Literally right out of the box. The housing is made of typical junk grade plastic. Now I'm contemplating whether or not it is worth it to send the thing back, or just throw it in the trash. Thanks, Mobee.

    Does not Work

    • Written by from New York

    I had the same problem mentioned in several of the other reviews: Despite charging the mouse overnight (first with the rechargeable battery in the mouse and then just the rechargeable battery), my iMac was never able to detect the mouse and the mouse's power light never came on. I emailed Mobee support and they did try to help (asking me to email them photos of the battery contacts) but I have already invested too much time in this. I hope they get the manufacturing kinks worked out one day.

    Worked ok for a few days, now will randomly disconnect many time a day, reconnects 10 seconds later and works fine. Seems the battery doesn't fit tight enough and momentarily looses connection causing the BT to disconnect.

    Not worth the money, went back to regular batteries and no more issues!

    it only goes to 75% changed when it's fully charged. And it stop working just few months. Now it's just sitting there collecting dust. I can't believe I actually bought it. DO NOT BUY IT!

    DO NOT BUY ... good concept; POOR design

    • Written by from Orlando

    Bought it with trepidation after reading the review; should have trusted y'all. Charged for 2 days. Then had a hard time getting it to "fit" into my mouse; the bottom clasp space wouldn't work so I used a screwdriver to pull the clasp back to it fit snug like the Apple cover does. Alas like others something inside isn't connecting like others' experience. Just buy a supply of rechargeable batteries til they figure this thing out or Apple makes a rechargeable Magic Mouse.

    Garbage. Don't buy.

    • Written by from Seattle

    Nice idea, but the technology is half-baked at best. We bought these for our office for the same reasons that other people did: save money on batteries, etc. But we couldn't even get a single unit to work properly. The mice simply wouldn't even turn on with the 'power-pack' attached. Disappointed, so we returned them and opted for Duracell rechargeable batteries. Much happier now.

    Good idea but not a great product

    • Written by from Boston

    I too purchased this a few months ago and it worked perfect until my mouse stopped recognizing the battery pack. I thought that there was a problem with the mouse so I went back to regular batteries and the mouse worked fine. I purchased a second battery pack to test if it was the mouse or the pack and my mouse will not recognize the new pack at all. This after fully charging the pack for more than 5 hours. Needless to say I am returning this pack for a refund and Apple should stop selling this product since it is not compatible with its mouse. Bottomline save your cash and use regular batteries.

    Do not buy!

    • Written by from Taylorsville

    The battery pack that you insert into your magic mouse, will not stay in place due to the fact that the portion of the battery pack that would click under the black button on the underside of the mouse has not been engineered correctly to fully click in. So consequently the mouse will connect and disconnect from your Mac randomly. Save your money and just use rechargeable batteries if you would like.

    Christmas present: shiny paperweight

    • Written by from 横浜市西区

    Well, as far as looks and product idea goes...great job, Mobee.

    As far as actual working product that "just works"...needs improvement. I got this for Xmas and was happy but not so when I actually tried to use it. The battery unit charges apparently, but putting it into the Apple Magic Mouse results in failure. The mouse is not powered and I am planning on returning this item.

    Also, the catch on the battery cover release is not a good fit and the cheap, thin plastic of the "cover" part of the battery pack gets damaged if you take out and put in the battery pack more than 3 times, even as carefully as I was handling it.

    I do not recommend this product.

    Junk - do not buy

    • Written by from FAIRBANKS

    My children purchased this for me as a gift for father's day.

    It stops working connecting and disconnecting probably three times an hour. It obviously isn;t connecting with the mouse innards properly and the metal base bends easily making it useless.

    Don't waste your money

    simply does not work

    • Written by from San Francisco

    this product just doesn't work. it appears simple and i have communicated with mobee about how to make sure the battery pack works, but it will simply not turn on and run my magic mouse despite all other signs (green light, etc.) saying it should work. this is the worst technology purchase i've ever made. worthless. my disposable batteries lasted for over 3 months so i think i'll just stick with them.
