    Great Product!

    I love it! I always wanted something like this but Apple never did it. Now, I no longer have to switch batteries for my mouse!

    All good except for. . .

    • Written by from Wanganui

    I haven't experienced most of the complaints noted on here.
    The fit, the look, the connectivity, have all been fine.

    My only complaint is the reported battery level indicator.
    As many have stated, it only reports 80% at full charge.
    Well mine only shows that for maybe an hour and then shows 2%. . . sometimes it only shows 2% at full charge (based on the solid green light indicating fully charged).
    This means I can never know when it's going to die. I still have to keep a secondary mouse available just in case.
    One user said he puts it on charge anytime he's not using it. This means the battery life will degrade way sooner than expected.
    As stated in another review, it would good if Apple produced an alternative indicator suited to this device.

    Works brilliantly...

    • Written by from Highlands Ranch

    ... well almost. There is one little niggle where OSX doesn't update the battery status for the mouse unless you pull the battery at first. The work arounds to that is to either quickly pull the battery and re-insert to get the status to update, or ignore the status and just know that your mouse is 100% when the light on the charger is solid green. It is a minor annoyance, but does little to take away from how nice this product is. I was tired of replacing the batteries in my mouse on a weekly basis. I tried the Durecells, I tried the Lithium, I tried various rechargeable batteries including Apples own, and Eneloops, I was still stuck in a cycle of replacing with newly charged batteries weekly. I like the convenience of simply placing it on the pad periodically and letting the mouse charge.

    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.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from New Milford

    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.

    Spend your money on rechargeable batteries instead

    • Written by from Honolulu

    Literally just threw this thing in the trash. I've had it about nine months and every time I use it, the mouse constantly disconnects and reconnects until I take the power pack out and replace it with batteries. This replaced a set of rechargeable batteries that worked just fine for three years. I'm getting new rechargeable batteries which saves money and pollutes less and significantly lowers my frustration level by removing this annoyance from my life.

    Gotta Keep It On The Pad

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Problem is, it discharges even while you're not using it. So you have to train yourself to put it on the pad when you're not using it. The charging pad, that is.

    Product suggestion: Make the charging pad larger and surfaced like a mouse pad. Then the mouse can stay on the pad even while in use.

    As long as we're wishing...: Embed an even larger charger into my wooden desk.

    This is so cool.

    Mixed results

    • Written by from Louisville

    I will not re-hash all the problems that others have with the never ending charge light blinking. My experience has for most part been positive until recently. The connector (uUSB) has started to fail and now requires a bit of manipulation to get power into the device. I'm just outside of the 1 year warranty so the manufacturer will not even discuss it.

    I enjoyed the convenience of not having to change batteries often but the product should last longer than 1 year, and if the company will not stand behind it then they don't have faith in what they are producing either.

    Absolutely does not work. Stay away this unit

    • Written by from Sausalito

    I gave it one star just because somehow you can't put 0.

    The saying goes like this:
    "there are liars, darn liars, god darn liars, and then there are battery engineers"
    The first battery pack lasted about 2 weeks. Mobee was kind enough to send a new battery pack. Once the pack was charged, the mouse only moved vertically. it won't move horizontally because I'm guessing this made in china product has not figured out that the pack does not sit right on the mouse thus movement is limited. Even when it moves, the mouse disconnect and reconnect at will. No its not my mouse issue. Once I put regular batteries it works like a charm.

    An absolute waste of money; Get a wired mouse or, if you still trust battery engineers, get a charger.

    Excellent accessory!

    • Written by from Leesburg

    I burned through batteries with my Magic Mouse very quickly. I didn't like that idea and was contemplating the purchase of rechargable batteries when I came across the Mobee Magic Charger. The concept of not having to remove batteries for charging was very attractive so I bought the unit.

    I have not been disappointed, it works a treat. There are reviews here and elsewhere that discuss the details about battery level and keeping the batteries charged, I won't go into that detail. I'll just say this is an excellent solution that works. I put the mouse on the charge pad whenever I'm away for a while so the mouse is always ready to go.

    It is worth noting, as have others, that no charger is actually provided which is why I give it only 4 stars. The manufacturer expects the computer to charge it via USB. But if the computer is off that doesn't work, so buy a charger of at least 2 amps or use an iPad/iPhone charger. Also, beware of reviewers who cannot figure out which way the charging pad is placed. One review I read the guy had the charging pad upside down, despite the rubber feet and shiny white plate that the mouse sits on. When it didn't work he had to call Mobee. Do I trust the rest of his review? i think not! Sad.

    Just a quick note to emphasize the charger's power requirement. I first plugged into a USB powered hub, but that didn't provide sufficient amperage to charge it in a reasonable time. A dedicated charger is best, the iPad 10amp charger works very well with it.

    Enjoy this product and free yourself from the battery monster!

    Great for saving money on Batteries!

    • Written by from Bennington

    I have had my Mobee Charger for about 4 months. I work on my computer all day and was frequently replacing the batteries in my Magic Mouse before I got this. Now I just set it on the charger everyday when I go to lunch and it is charged up when I get back. So far I have not had it run out of batteries at all. It's a great asset if you use your computer a lot!

    Never ever worked.

    • Written by from Glendale

    This thing was extremely difficult to install into the Magic Mouse. It was impossible to get it into correct position, and impossible to remove. Since it NEVER EVER charged, I had to THROW THE WHOLE MOUSE AWAY. FAIL.

    Drawing too much power? I'm not brave enough to experiment.

    • Written by from San Jose

    I just bought this yesterday. Plugged it in, played around, seemed to be working fine. It wasn't fully charged of course, so I left the mouse on the charging pad overnight and this morning I had the following warning on my screen:

    Because a USB device was drawing too much power from your computer, one or more of your USB devices have been disabled.

    The only thing plugged into my computer was my apple keyboard, my 2nd gen ipad and the the Mobee Magic Charger. This was the new device. I don't know if this was a fluke or if this device is faulty. There's tiny type that says drawing too much power can damage your computer. I really can't afford to have this break my computer, so back it will go...

    GREAT PRODUCT!

    • Written by from Toronto

    I have been using this charger for 2 years and still using the same batteries. When I am done using the computer I just place it back on the charger. I am a heavy computer users and use the computer for hours, a lot of designer work and the batteries last forever, haven't had it run out on me when I am doing work. The charger is always pluged in 247, I never unplugged it since I've gotten it.

    I haven't had to change the batteries yet. Before I got this I was having to charge my batteries every couple of hours. This is so great, I am very happy with it. Worth the $40.

    Good xxx

    • Written by from Lancaster

    I really like this, it is really easy to use... you really just place the mouse on top and it charges it. I love it! It would have cost a lot in batteries otherwise haha xx The only bad thing about it is that when I got my fist one the top was up and wouldn't go down, but once changed I got a perfect one! I would recommend it to any person xxxxxx

    Very Sketchy Product

    • Written by from Spring Branch

    The Mobee battery pack and bottom cover are molded together and replace the existing magic mouse battery compartment cover. The tab/lock on the first MObee battery pack unit I received, bent when I installed it and the battery pack would not fit in the battery compartment snugly. After reinserting the battery pack, the tab/lock snapped off, which meant the battery pack wouldn't stay in place at all.

    I reported this to Mobee and they sent me a new unit quickly - good customer service.

    The second Mobee battery pack worked for about a year and a half, but the tab/lock periodically worked itself loose and the battery pack wouldn't stay put. Additionally, when the battery pack was loose, the mouse tracking would respond erratically - which came to be the sign that the battery pack was loose. So, after about a year and a half of reseating the battery pack, the battery pack cover broke and rendered it useless.

    After that bad experience, I went back to the original Apple battery plate cover and rechargeable batteries - Ahhhh, no more problems. As such, I could never recommend anyone purchase this device because it is completely unreliable and irritating to maintain - at least that was my experience.

    This is awesome for about 6 months then the battery starts to not last that long. Just like anything has to be replaced. Note: might have been cheaper to buy normal AA batteries.

    Missing piece to work

    • Written by from Hollis

    When I got the Mobee Magic I put it on charge for a day or two. By time i actually got the product to fit in the magic mouse, the product doesn't even work. Its missing one of the metal battery connector piece. So from day one the product is useless, don't wash your time buying.
