    charging port on the bottom of the mouse?

    • Written by ariel M from Shade

    i can't believe Apple designers couldn't figure out how to position the charging cable for this mouse in such a way that it COULD BE USED WHILE CHARGING! am i supposed to just take a little break in the middle of the work-day when my mouse is out of juice? seriously poor design.

    Has a mind of its own...not Apple quality of old.

    • Written by Bernard C from Highlands

    I had a laser mouse for two years and no problems at all. This Magic Mouse 2 is 6 months old and malfunctions all the time. It will zoom in on a screen when it wants, fail to open up a link when clicked and as for scrolling, it's so jittery, it's like risking a bicycle over train tracks. The lady at Apple was very helpful but nothing we did over the course of 45 minuted made a difference. She said that if I installed Mojave my problems would go away. They did for half an hour and then back to the above issues.

    Rechargeable!!! LOVE THIS!

    • Written by Wendy E from Palmer

    Finally! I don't have to keep buying batteries for our mouse! I love the fact that it now has a rechargeable battery, just like our phones and iPads. Feels the same in my hand and works great!! Don't know why there are so many negative reviews.

    Magic Mouse

    • Written by Vicki D from Goonellabah

    Feels good in your hand but what idiot thought that putting the recharging station on the bottom of the mouse was a good thing. Mouse is completely unusable whilst its being recharged and have to plug in a wired mouse to continue being able to do my work. Stupid stupid design.

    Magic Mouse 2 DOES NOT WORK on cloth mouse pads

    • Written by Dorothy P. R from Atlanta

    The claim that the magic mouse 2 works on all surfaces is false. My magic mouse 2 works fine with no tracking errors when I use on my wood desktop. As soon as I place it on a standard cloth mousepad (to protect my desktop from wear) the magic mouse 2 stops tracking. It stops completely, you can't get it to move. No other optical mouse I've tried has this problem with the mouse pad. As soon as I put the magic mouse 2 on the desktop it starts working again. I have tried this with multiple cloth mouse pads and the result is always the same. I have not been able to find any good information about what mouse pads are effective for this mouse. Shame on Apple for making bogus claims and not providing correct information about their product.

    MM 2

    • Written by Terry T from Wellesley

    So disappointed in the Magic Mouse which originally came with my new (2016) IMac. It quit working after only two years. New Magic Couse 2 rechargeable has received scathingly negative reviews so will not be buying that one. Now have to use a USB connected mouse.So sad for Apple.

    Don't buy for your Macbook.

    • Written by clifford I from upper kennetcook

    This review applies to users who intend to use the magic mouse 2 with their MacBook.

    I bought the magic moose because I have fond memories of using the scroll feature on the original magic mouse, I remembered it as being a quite elegantly implemented feature. however, there is zero comparison to the trackpads on the new MacBooks, it's not even close. the scrolling on the mouse is so much worse than I found myself taking my hand off the mouse to scroll on the trackpad. and then once your hand is there it just naturally stays. at first I tried to consciously make a decision to force my self to use it but eventually, I decided it was pointless.

    also, I found the mouse would glitch out on different surfaces requiring a mouse pad to work consistently.

    its uses the antiquated lighting cable (which may not be an issue for most people all in on the Apple ecosystem but everything else I own uses type c) I cant not mention that the charging port seemingly for no reason is located on the bottom rendering the device useless when being charged. that said its battery life is very good and most of the time is not a big deal. it does annoy me every time it needs to be charged and so it seems worth mentioning.

    The scrolling is terrible
    you will most likely need a mouse pad
    the charging situation is bad.

    The BEST!

    • Written by Susan C from Roanoke

    Best mouse I've ever used, and I've been using Apple products for personal and photographic use (Photoshop) for over 35 years.
    Everything about this Mouse is perfect, efficient and effective.
    Immediately liked it so much for my MacAir that I ordered a second one for the 27" Mac I use for photographic work.
    HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Charges quickly, holds that charge a long time, and is easy to use.

    Great mouse with one flaw

    • Written by Laurel S from Carmichael

    I love the mouse. It works great, and the charge holds better than other wireless products I've used. I appreciate that it can be recharged with a USB cable instead of needing batteries, but the port placement is really unfortunate. I know it's better for the look of the mouse, but having to plug it in on the bottom makes it unusable while charging. Inevitably, I always get the "mouse battery very low" message when I'm in the middle of an important project. I have to plug it in and wait for it to recharge to resume working. The charging port should be on the back so you can continue using it as it charges. It's not a huge issue, but enough to knock off a star, and something I hope Apple will address in the next go-round.

    Form over function

    • Written by Steven H from Ashton

    Favors form over function. The mania for thinness means the mouse does not fit comfortably in your hand. The magic part? Accidentally brushing the surface of the mouse causes your screen to scroll or even moves your web browser back a page. Very annoying.
    After a year of use, the mouse will not charge quickly so we have to charge it overnight. If it loses power while you're using it, you're out of luck since the magic mouse was cleverly designed so it cannot be charged while in use. I don't recommend buying it.

    Works on any surface. Connection issues.

    • Written by Chris H from San Mateo

    This mouse should work on most any surface -- unlike previous optical mice I've used, the Magic Mouse 2 works well on my very light birch veneer desk (Ikea Gallant). Scrolling and right clicks work great too. The battery lasts for month of normal use. However, as the charging port is located on the bottom, the mouse is not usable while charge, a design flaw in my opinion. When used with one computer exclusively, pairing works well. However, if switching between two computers (e.g. laptop and desktop, or home and work), the pairing never seems to work the first time around. This is my biggest annoyance with this mouse.

    Only reason I give it 3 stars is because of the clicking noise

    • Written by Anthony C from Portland

    I don't know what's with all the negative reviews but, my mouse works great. You can't use it while it's charging, that's okay with me. The only thing I would change is the clicking noise. I know they are going to say they can't get rid of it but, there are companies out there that have found solutions to this. I make music so I'm clicking away at things and that sound, I wish there could be something done about it. I will only give it 3 stars until Apple can find a solution.

    Not what I expected.

    • Written by Jean Raphael S from MALDEN

    I wanted to like this mouse but, unfortunately it is not good at all. It feels very sticky in the hand so, it makes difficult working with gestures. It is also too small and it is not comfortable holding it.

    Ergonomics sacrificed for aesthetics

    • Written by Thomas O from troy

    I have been using a MacBook Pro for at least the past 9-10 years maybe more can't even remember because it is by far the most reliable and stable machine out there and I am in no way trying to bash Apple, love the products overall. But the magic mouse and wireless keyboard have really taken a toll on my hands and fingers. Aesthetically pleasing? Sure. But ergonomically healthy for a heavy user? Absolutely not, especially the mouse. The claw-like position the hand must be in with the arm twisted inward instead of a handshake-like position and the constant micro-use of the finger muscles hovering above the touch pad are horrible. If you are an occasional user this is fine, looks nice, etc. But if your keyboard and mouse are how you make your living I would steer clear. And Apple, if you are listening, can you PLEASE dedicate some of your seemingly infinite resources to developing a mouse for the human body and not just the showroom? I have a potentially revolutionary idea if you would like to talk! Seriously! Thanks..

    Expensive for an exceedingly poor quality mouse

    • Written by Lars Joakim O from INALA

    I've had two Apple Magic Mouse, and now an Apple Mouse Magic 2. The first two stopped working after around a year, and the Apple Magic Mouse 2 stopped working after 5 months. When I pay $110 for a mouse, I should reasonable expect it to last a lot longer than what it does. Because of my experiences with three Apple Magic Mouse, I will not be buying another one to replace the one that stopped working. I don't understand why Apple have to cut corners on the quality of the mouse when they charge so much for it. My wife is still using her $30 bluetooth mouse she bought for her laptop six years ago.

    WHY is the charge port on the bottom?

    Absolute loss of function if you have to charge - Not ideal to use while working in a fast paced environment.
