    It is what it is

    • Written by from New York

    I can't say I 'hate" the charger, but there are times when it inconveniently disconnects from my iMac's bluetooth. Usually if I just need to move the mouse, and it reconnects; I've noticed that this issue comes in waves. There can be several weeks with no problems and then suddenly it will disconnect/connect several times a day. I've had my Mobee charger with the same Magic Mouse now for 3 years (at least that, but probably more), so I cannot speak to its dying after a year's use.
    If the disconnect/connect problem was solved, I'd give if 5 stars.

    Works perfectly... until it doesnt

    • Written by from Montreal

    Unlike a lot of reviewers, I got 2 years of use from the battery pack until it stopped keeping a charge.
    In the beginning the battery was good for a week or more and i did not run into any problems.
    Now the battery lasts a day before needing to be charged. So it can be quite frustrating, as i'm using my mouse 8 or more hours per day.

    Need improvement

    • Written by from Epping

    Other inductive charging solutions (for phones) magnetically locate the inductive coil in the phone, to the one in the charger pad. The magic charger really needs something like thing, as if the mouse if not aligned properly, it'll take significantly longer to charge.

    The reduced capacity of the batteries is an issue. Really you need to stick the mouse on the pad every night, and if you forget a couple of nights in the row, you're back to the AA's.

    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...

    Convenient but issues....

    • Written by from Beachwood

    So i waited a year before getting this product to make sure and read some great reviews. Now that I have it I do love the fact that I don't have to worry about batteries but at the same time, It only charges the mouth to 80% no matter how many different things i try. I have ran the battery out completely and recharged it. I have also shut the mouse off at night so it would charge over night, and still only ever gets to 80%. Happy with this? Yes I am please with the product. Disappointed? Yes I am also not to impressed on the charge it holds only after I bought it brand new. Love the good, Deal with the Bad...

    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.

    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%??

    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...

    • Written by from Calgary

    i just got this product yesterday and i am not impressed at the fact that i cant charge my batteries without having the computer on all night. for 50$, its kinda stupid but i found one of the phone chargers for the iphone and all i did was replace the iphone cable with the magic charger (coz both of them use usb ports) and so far, the light is blinking and i think it works fine. as for putting the battery in and taking it out, i did not have a problem...

    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.

    A so-so product for a great product

    • Written by from Austin

    I love my Magic Mouse. I am not as thrilled with the rechargeable battery pack. For some reason the battery pack doesn't stay clipped into my mouse.

    Works great when it works. When it doesn't, contact Mobee.

    • Written by from Arcadia

    I had my Mobee Charger since it was released (about 6-7 weeks). Initially, it worked great. It would charge without issues and my Magic Mouse stayed connected. At about 4 weeks, I started having issues with the mouse disconnecting. This problem became more frequent until then it would not even charge correctly. I contacted Mobee and they agreed that I had a defective product. They promptly replaced it (kudos to them), and so far it has worked well for the past week or so. Let's hope I just got unlucky and that this replacement will continue to work well.
