    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.

    Setup a concern

    • Written by from Manteno

    Unfortunately the setup was not successful. I removed the AA batteries & replaced them with the Mobee Magic Charger batteries, but it didn't exactly fit right. Just like a previous review mentioned, the Mobee lid wasn't flush with the bottom of the Magic Mouse like the original lid is. The Magic Mouse would not power up. I charged it up but because of the mis-match fitting, I don't think the leads aligned right. I used eyeglass screwdrivers to try to fit this in the proper way but I wound up breaking the metal lead. A good concept but the kinks need to be worked out. Can you say 'quality control?'

    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

    No quality.

    • Written by from S. Mamede Infesta

    First there is the poor build quality and attention to detail like the voltage of the batteries (different volts make for an inconsistent battery % reading). Then there is the fact that it didn't work with any of the 3 magic mouses I had at home. Had to get a refund. People reported it only works in some magic mouse versions (?). Well not an experience I would like to repeat.

    Good concept, weak execution.

    • Written by from Toluca Lake

    I too have been experiencing the frequent BT connection drops, and my Magic Mouse always shows as having a 5% charge, and frequent indicators of "Battery Low" - despite being allegedly fully charged (left charging overnight, green light stopped flashing).

    It holds a charge for several days in this state. Overall, I'm not too impressed by the build quality and the problems. I went back to Apple Rechargeable AA batteries - less hassles, more reliable.

    works perfectly

    • Written by

    I had the Magic Charger for 3 months and I've never had any problem!
    and about the battery level of 80% I read on the mobee website that is normal for a full recharge:
    "The Alkaline batteries originaly delivered with the Magic Mouse are 1.5V per cell, meaning 3V for the 2 cells when you use brand new batteries.
    We are using NiMH batteries, these are 1.2V per cell. Thus when fully charged that's 2.4V which means that OSX will read 70 to 80% only"
    I think that is clear, and when my battery is fully charged I can use my mouse during 5 to 6 days. Actually I've never had any problem of charge because each time I don't use my mouse I put it on the base station and I like this concept because I don't have to think if my mouse is charged or not!

    Great Product - Works like it should.

    • Written by from Elizabethtown

    I've had this product for almost a year now. I love it. I've seen some of the other reviews and I think as long as you use it right it works fine. Turn it off when you charge it and it charges and holds a charge fine. I use mine every day for work and will probably be buying another one for a second computer.

    Does not charge reliably

    • Written by from Durham

    I've been using one of these for 8 months now. Although there are benefits to never having to worry about replacing batteries, those benefits are easily outweighed by how this device will not charge reliably.

    I would expect to be able to set the mouse on the charging pad and have the light turn from red to blinking green (indicating that it is charging,) but that rarely happens so easily. Instead, I have to keep taking the mouse off the charger and "dropping" it from about an 1/8th of an inch above the charger until it lands in a fashion that causes whatever is not connecting to connect. This is a raindance I do every night before bed if I hope to have a usable mouse the next day.

    On top of that, the blinking green light is supposed to turn solid green when the mouse has finished charging. This never happens. Not once in the time I have owned this have I ever seen a solid green light. I could leave it for days, and the light will never turn solid green. The most common light? Solid red. That just means nothing's charging. Second most common light? Blinking red. That means, "something is wrong, but don't worry about trying to figure it out; it's really just a symptom of a sub-par product. Try again later."

    If and when I can get the charge to "stick" and the blinking green light to commence, I have to watch it to make sure it stays green and blinking. I failed to do this last night, and this morning I awoke to a solid red light again, as if the mouse was not sitting on the charger all night, which it was. It also has no charge.

    Stay away from Mobee products. They do not "just work" like you would expect something found at the Apple Store to do.

    So Far, So Good

    • Written by from Lake Worth

    Reading reviews here and other locations I was not sure about purchasing this product. Took the plunge yesterday. I studied the various sources regarding proper installation of the battery pack before proceeding (thank you early adopters!!) and in my case the battery pack installed smoothly and charged up in about 5 hours. No problems to date and most importantly, the periodic mouse disconnects are gone!!

    No problems - very satisfied

    • Written by from Northville

    Bought this about 3 weeks ago, more on impulse because it looked really cool. I read some reviews and wasn't completely sure how it was going to be, but the batteries actually lasted much longer than I expected. I have had no problems with the battery pack coming undone, and the charge has continuously lasted me over a full work week. Overall, charges fast and does what it says.

    Works perfectly for me

    • Written by from STEVENSVILLE

    I use my magic mouse constantly and this product has worked perfectly for me. My Magic Mouse is several years old, I purchased it when they first came out. The charger has worked perfectly for me. I haven't had the problems other reviewers have reported. The battery and lid were no harder to insert than the original battery compartment cover. I leave the mouse sitting on the pad and it is always fully charged whenever I begin to use it.

    BTW, there is a nice widget (Mighty Monitor) that you can use on Dashboard to show your wireless battery levels. It is nice to always have the mouse charged. For me this has been an easy and elegant solution. I don't understand the problems others have had, but if it doesn't work for your mouse, return it to Apple for a full refund (within 14 days).

    Too much hassle

    • Written by from duncansville

    Just got this product and was very disappointed. Great idea to make battery rechargeable since it is good for the environment and convenient, but when I placed the battery pack in my mouse after it had been charged fully, there was no connection and the mouse would not turn on. I am planning on getting one more to try and see if it works, but if there is a any hassle I am going to just send it back and stick to regular batteries. If some improvements on fit and quality were made this would be a great product but unfortunately it is not worth the money as is now.

    It would be nice if it worked

    • Written by from Union Dale

    I really wanted this product to work. It's a great idea but it just isn't engineered right. The battery pack does not fit properly and this causes the mouse to lose the connection a few seconds after you touch the mouse.

    Apple does not provide tech support for the product and apparently the manufacturer does not either.

    I'm amazed that Apple even sells this in their store. Fortunately they will accept the returns but I wish I had not wasted my time.

    Piece of junk

    • Written by from Tucson

    This product is just a piece of junk. It almost ruined my apple magic mouse -- while I inserted it into the mouse, it did not work; and it takes me 2 hours to get this out of my mouse.

    Just doesn't work properly

    • Written by from Toronto

    My experience with this product seems different to what I've read from most. I was able to charge the batteries and connect the mouse. The problem was scrolling. It moves painfully slowly in a vertical direction and not at all in any other direction. Back to basic batteries.

    Works Great with Some Mice

    • Written by from MONTICELLO

    I have a number of Macs and Magic Mice. The Mobee Magic Charger will not charge an older MM but works flawlessly with a newer one I have. When I could not get the Mobee charger to work I went through all the problem solving steps listed by other. Finally I charged the battery pack outside the MM. But when inserted and fully charged it still would not connect. Next inserted the battery pack in a newer MM and it connected to my Mac and charged on the base. It has operated flawlessly for several weeks. It keeps this MM charged to 100%.

    I suspect those with difficulties (after verifying that the pack is inserted properly) may have an older Magic Mouse. That would make charging problems a function of the mouse not Mobee.

    Great Product That Needs Tweek

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I was going to have to return this. It just didn't work. Then I checked the reviews here and the reviewer "Cardiff" said that he fixed his by bending the solo prong a little. That made mine work too! Bless Cardiff!

    Hopefully it will keep working and I'll never have to worry about buying batteries again. I love the Magic Mouse but it eats batteries far too fast.

    Good with room for improvement.

    • Written by from Atlanta

    The idea for a charging pad for your wireless mouse is great. The Mobee system is easy to setup. It has some drawbacks dough. First, the battery life for their rechargeable battery is really short, they could have done something better. And secondly, the construction of the devise is very cheap for what you pay. Knock off $20 bucks and you are at the right spot.
