    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.

    Don't forget to charge it everyday!!

    • Written by from Vicksburg

    Full charge was holding fine for first few weeks, but now (after about 2 months of use) I need to charge it every second or third day.

    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.

    OK, but...

    • Written by from Vancouver

    This seems to work as advertised, but when I charge it on the base unit, hook it up to my MacBook pro and click the mouse on system preferences, it gives my a charge of just 82%. It was sitting on there for at least 12 hours, the light on the base unit was solid and not blinking so I am just wondering why I don't see a charge of 100%??

    Good for a while...

    • Written by from Chicago

    This thing will stop working after a while. After a few months, my connection was completely unreliable, making the computer frustrating to use. Switched back to batteries and never looked back.

    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!!

    good up close, terrible at 5ft or greater

    • Written by from HUMBLE

    I've had the battery pack and charger for approximately 6 months and have a hate-love relationship with it. If i leave the mouse on my desk it normally works fine; if i sit in my recliner (5 1/2 ft from MAC) to watch movies and intend on using the mouse I have to either use an alternative input device (another mouse, keyboard or apple pad) or be ready to fidget with the bottom of the mouse to make it reconnect. The mouse will stay connected for a few minutes but then loses the connection and i have to push, pull or reseat the battery to make it reconnect. Gets very frustrating and want to throw it out the window most of the time! Doesn't always charge either with LED staying red even after an all-night charge.

    Tested for 6 months... Works Great

    • Written by from Hilliard

    I have had the Mobee Magic Charger for 6 months and it has worked great, under heavy use!

    The battery is a snug fit into the mouse, which by some reviews has intimated some. It's a little tough to take out frequently, but why would you need do that? Just put the mouse on the charger when not in use!

    I also see that some are confused by the lights on the charger. Red light means charger is idle, blinking green is charging, solid green is charged. It has nothing to do with connecting to your computer, the mighty mouse does that!

    I charge my mouse overnight, when the computer is sleeping. This is ideal for iMacs because the power supply is always plugged in.

    The idea of the quick and easy charge is so you can do that! If you are looking for a mouse that you need to charge once a month, this is not for you. It is meant to be charged often! I hope that helps. I really enjoy this product and it was well worth the investment!

    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.

    Works great, never bother with batteries again!

    • Written by from Marana

    I was hesitant when I read some of the less than optimal reviews but I went for it and picked this up. I love it, it installed easily and charges as advertised. Now I never experience the "disconect / connect" loop and the mouse is always ready to go.

    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.

    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.

    You Need 2 Battery Packs To Use This

    • Written by from San Jose

    Lucky for me they accidentally shipped two of these to me instead of just the one that I ordered and thank goodness they did! You can only charge the mouse battery when it's plugged in the computer. The only time my computer is on is when I'm using it with my mouse. So I always have that second battery charged and ready to go thanks to their mistake. If I only had one battery, I'd be up a creek when the battery dies, and that's quite often. This would be an excellent product if they included a wall charger. Serious design flaw.

    Work when it works, but disconnects after a bump

    • Written by from PROSPECT BAY

    I have had my Mobee Magic Charger for 2 weeks now, it seemed to work pretty good, but it was disconnecting from my MacBook Pro every so often.
    I found the problem to be, when the mouse was bumped or taped to hard, it would disconnect every time.
    I tried cleaning the contacts but that made no difference.
    Worse than that, if you take the Mobee battery pack out more than 3 times the little tiny plastic lock breaks.
    Also I found that the charge was good but not as long as a decent set of batteries.
    DON'T BUY ONE!!!!

    Magic Mouse Batteries to heavy?

    • Written by from Cham

    I work as a video editor since more than ten years and never had problems with my hands. Since a month I got the new Magic Mouse and since nearly two weeks my right hand wrist starts hurting. I didn't change at all the way i work... is it because the Magic Mouse is to heavy that i got this pain? I'm afraid I'm right...

    I'll get a Mobee Magic Charger with the other batterie set (a bit lighter) and hope that it will improve my workflow. I like the mouse, but if it doesn't work I definitely have to look for other products or providers.

    Why is the Mobee Magic Charger working with rechargeable batteries and not with an accumulator cell/batterie like each computer do? This would be much lighter i guess...

    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).

    Great Idea, Bad Engineering

    • Written by from CARROLLTON

    I absolutely love the concept and enjoyed the mouse for the short time it worked. The battery pack started popping loose thereby causing the mouse to lose its connection with the computer. I constantly had to reseat the battery pack and reconnect it with the computer via SETTINGS. I finally gave up and called Apple. Being inside of the return window, I am sending it back and hoping for a redesign by Mobee. I suggest an AC/USB charger be added to allow for charging separate from the computer.

    The cover for the battery compartment for the Magic mouse is made of a fairly sturdy piece of what I would guess is aluminum. You remove this piece and the batteries and insert the rechargeable battery from the Mobee. The part of the Mobee that essentially replaces the battery compartment cover is cheap and flimsy plastic. The portion of this that is up against the rechargeable batter is fine. The other part however, the part that locks into the mouse is subject to damage that the regular cover would be unlikely to sustain. I inserted the battery and close the case and the Mobee did not "turn on" the mouse. So I put it back on the charger to see if it was charged and it was. I popped the battery back out to make sure I seated it properly and upon my reinstall, the tab on the cover that goes over the black latch essentially snapped making it impossible to firmly seat the batteries in the device. Great idea, cheap execution.

    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.
