    Great but expensive

    Great design, but the price 79 + tax! I think is expensive.

    Died Completely after One Year

    Looks good, feels good, dies good. For the money spent, this may be the WORST product Apple ever produced. Oh well, my Microsoft mini-mouse uses one AA battery and runs for about a year. It's always been my travel mouse, now it will be my new "home" mouse.

    Form over function for this worthless device.

    Did no one ever tell Tim about this thing?

    lasted just months

    worst product Apple has made. I have had this slick little mouse for only 6 months. Changed batteries several times, not it does not work at all. Don't buy waste of good money,

    Better than the last one!

    I have the original magic mouse at home and I hate dealing with the batteries! When I started my new job, they had that really old corded one which was even worse because I didn't have the gestures like the one at home! So I asked for a magic mouse. Ask and you shall receive (at my work at least). Anyway, I got it and was totally amazed that it doesn't require batteries! I didn't even know that existed! As other reviews have pointed out, yes it sometimes is inconvenient when your mouse dies because the charging port is on the bottom. But... Your computer keeps alerting you that your mouse is dying before it does. Be sure to just plug it in when you're done for the day and you'll be set. I have had it die twice at work because I forgot to charge it the night before. I just plugged it in for 5-10 mins and that gave me enough juice to make it until lunch when I was able to really charge it up. One thing I love is that it uses the same cable as the iPhone which I always already have on my desk for my phone! I so want one of these at home, but I'm just going to keep using rechargeable batteries for now. If I ever have to replace it, I'll for sure get the new one! I haven't noticed a difference besides the charging bit. If you put the new one and the old one in my hand, I wouldn't be able to tell you which was which unless I checked the bottom.

    Poor design

    My mouse battery must have died over the weekend. At first I thought, cool, no problem, it's rechargeable! Sadly I discovered like all those before me that the charging port is on the bottom. Not a mistake I would expect from Apple.

    Your grip style is critical to your satisfaction!

    I'm told there's three kinds of grip for a mouse: Claw, palm, and something else I've forgotten and can't be bothered to look up.

    What I've found AFTER using the mouse for a week is that I use a claw grip, pinching in from the sides to move the mouse. It is at this point that I realize that the (not sharp, but) abrupt corners on the sides can be noticeable. Maybe not off-putting, but 3 weeks in I still notice it.

    If you're used to a high palm swell on the mouse you will miss it. My cheapo old Logitech M100 mouse does not have a big swell, but Apple flat takes some getting used to.

    Flat is necessary for the multitouch surface on the top of the mouse, which turns out to be more useful as I take the time to configure it to how I work.

    I haven't had connectivity issues. 1 charge lasts me... I don't know, 3 weeks later I'm sitting at 76%, and I'm a full time student.

    Worth it, but try one in a store, if you can.

    Magic Mouse 2 - Poor Design and Doesn't Hold Charge

    The mouse had issues holding a charge after one month. Because the re-charging location is on the bottom, you are unable to charge the mouse when it is dead... so you are stuck. It was poorly designed and doesn't work well.

    Tried to return it after 2 months and was not able to...

    VERY DISAPPOINTED--would not recommend.

    Works Great.

    Not really sure what all the fuss is about. This mouse works very well and the multi-touch gestures really set it apart from third part accessories. As far as charging goes, I have used it very extensively and have yet to charge it because it keeps a charge for 6-8 weeks, while only requiring 2 hours of charge for that performance. So, not gonna be a huge deal. If you're considering buying it, I doubt you'll regret it.

    Connects Intermittently

    This mouse connects then is not connected back and forth several times a day. While I use my new iMac I have to pause what I am doing frequently to wait for the "magic" mouse to be found again. Today it stopped connecting completely. $80? Looks nice, doesn't work.

    Is there a way to give it zero stars?

    Awful product. I am not happy with any of the features. Tossing it into the trash.

    Design over functionality

    Having to stop using the mouse when recharging is the most idiotic concept ever applied to a mouse. If not having a connector visible is a must, then bring back the replaceable batteries.

    Good concept, poor result

    Things I like: the sleekness of the Magic Mouse 2, bluetooth capability, the battery life and even the weird way it fits in your palm

    Things I am driven crazy by: the amount of left-right movement occurs when simply trying to scroll down, the mouse will at times (I'd say 1 out of every 5) fail to scroll down or up when I call for it to do so, it requires too much effort to click, is very loud when clicking and has a ridiculous charger placement

    $80 is WAY too much for a mouse to have this many issues. Wish I would have never purchased.

    Only one problem

    I bought the Magic Mouse 2 about a week ago and I can honestly say all the issues I see people are having amaze me. My hands are very large and I have NEVER cramped up while using the mouse for a long period of time. Its a great product that does exactly what it says it will and it does it well. The only problem and the reason I took a star away is I do believe the charging port would be best suited in the rear instead of the bottom so that it could be still used while charging.....other than that its great.

    DONT' GET THIS MOUSE

    Purchased mouse on January 20, 2017. It lasted to end of March. No longer takes a charge. Attempts to activate warranty failed as Apple won't recognize 17 digit serial number. Save your money and get Logitech mouse.

    Exceptional

    I have just returned to college from the workforce and as such I needed to create an office to work out of online etc. I already owned a Macbook Air with i7 processor and decided to set it up with an external monitor and wireless keyboard and mouse. The Magic Mouse 2 works perfectly. There was no work at all in installing it, just turn on bluetooth and bam, it works. The battery life has been amazing. wether I am working, during homework or gaming it works flawlessly. I'm not sure why there have been such bad reviews because it will glide across any surface perfectly, even leather. I guess if you don't know how to set the sensitivity that would be a problem. I like that you can scroll, zoom in and out, and go forward or backward in web pages just by swiping your finger. The fit is perfectly fine and you will forget your holding it. The problem with charging it I don't understand. You can see how much battery it has left by looking it up so not really a problem, and unless you absolutely stay awake 24 hours a day, 365 days a year I guess having to set it down for a few minutes to charge would be horrendous, but I just set mine to charge with the included cord when I'm not using it. Ignore the negative reviews on here, it works perfectly, charges perfectly, fits your hand without putting it in a weird position, and has outstanding battery life. If your used to apple products being amazing then you won't find a thing wrong with it.

    Love it

    Smooth, sweet. Minimal effort. Makes an old mouse feel like it has pedals on it

    The Apple Doorstop

    I have been using - and loving - Apple products since the late 80s, and this is the first Apple product that I truly, actively and loudly HATE!!!

    It has such an aesthetically elegant design… no buttons, no scroll wheel, just a smooth surface. What this means is lots of accidental scrolling (both vertical and horizontal) and zooming. I’m looking at a page online, and all of a sudden everything zooms out of sight, merely because my finger happened to barely touch the mouse. Or I’m looking at a weather map and, without warning, I’m zooming in so far I can almost see blades of grass. And don’t even ask about editing entries in iTunes. It’s a nightmare. I guess the solution is to avoid any contact with the sensitive surface by holding my hand in the air when not using the mouse.

    And that aesthetically elegant design… This would be great if I just sat there admiring the beauty of my mouse. But its weight and shape don’t conform to my hand, and I’m getting carpal tunnel syndrome from it.

    But I love the fact that it’s cordless. Except it periodically needs charging. And where did they put the charging port? On the bottom, so you can’t use it while it’s recharging. Why not put the charging port on the rear end, so it functions like a corded mouse while charging? Did this not even occur to them?

    Did they not even test this piece of s#*t? Did they not have actual people try it and see how it worked? I suppose they can re-market it as the Apple Doorstop.
