    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.

    this thing looks so easy, but mine just won't work. it says its charged, but as soon as i take it off the charger the red light goes on and it won't work. you're better off just changing batteries - its not that hard. this is a $50 piece of junk.

    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.

    Induction Battery Pack has no power and is very malleable

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Put the induction battery pack in the mouse. Let it charge on base until base's light was a constant green. Tried to turn on the mouse, but had no success. I don't think the mouse is getting power because its little green light is never coming on. I want to push or re-seat the induction battery pack, but it is flimsy and only slightly stronger than a piece of aluminum foil. I will be returning it.

    Horrible product and troubleshooting thru Mobee

    • Written by from NANAIMO

    First off, after the battery pack was fully charged, I tried using my mouse to find out that it won't even turn on. I tried several times replacing the battery pack, but to no avail. One of the worst parts is that the battery pack gets jammed into the mouse, and I had to use a tool to pry it out (being careful not to damage our beautiful mouse). Definitely not ready to be sold until all the bugs are worked out.

    Good idea, bad execution

    • Written by from Fishkill

    I agree with the review that it's a flop. I'm having same problem. I will now have to drive all the way to an apple store to have them safely remove the charger from magic mouse because I can no longer use the mouse. This is a product that is not yet ready for production. Needs more testing. It's horrible. I shouldn't have so much trouble. Also, try adding better instructions and trouble shooting to your packaging if you are going to have a product that doesn't work out of the box.

    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.

    poor design

    • Written by from Warminster

    battery doesn't fit into the MM. Tried every way possible, and I get it to just barely fit in and stay. However, it doesn't fit well, and the bottom of the battery sits below the rails on the MM. So the paint coating of battery has worn off.

    I've gone back to just using rechargeable batteries.

    Magic Mouse Charger

    • Written by from FAIR LAWN

    I was so excited to buy this when it came out and now it's just a piece of garbage. So disappointed in this project. I wish I could return it! It shouldn't even get a 1 star rating.

    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?'

    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.

    It just does NOT work at all. It turns off the mouse unexpectedly. You have to turn it physically off and on in order to work a few more minutes. It seems that it does not fit well in the Apple Magic Mouse (that is the best mouse I ever had working with AA BATTERIES) So disappointed!! I want my money back!!!

    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.

    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.

    Great Concept - Poor Quality

    • Written by from White River Junction

    Poor instructions and broken cable! The set up instructions printed on the box and those on Mobee's web site are meager and misleading. The box shows an illustration of the USB plugged into what appears to be a keyboard, and the web site states use "any USB port". NOT TRUE! After charging my Magic Mouse for 18 hrs and no full charge indicated, I logged into Mobee's FAQ page to read that the charger needs a full powered USB port such as what's on the computer and not the one a Mac keyboard. While unplugging from my keyboard, the cable separated from the USB plug. Currently, I'm disappointed and awaiting what Mobee does about my request for a replacement USB cable.
