    Can someone identify the genius who put that charging port under the mouse?

    • Written by Yoni O from Paris

    Man if you ever read this, you are a legend bro... Me and few other millions of users are interrupting our work and all, once or twice a week because you and your genius buddies at Apple had the miraculous idea of making this mouse useless while charging. Man, you are a hero to all of us. In a thousand years, when computers will be displayed in museums, your design will be seen as a significant step in the history of human civilization. For now, I'll be contemplating my charging mouse. What a beautiful world.

    Great Mouse - 5 Star

    • Written by Andrew W from Sherman Oaks

    I was a little reluctant to get this mouse initially. I had gotten the Logitech T630 mouse a couple of years ago because I thought the MM2 was too expensive. It worked great until about 4-5 months ago when the scrolling function just stopped working. I had also seen a lot of 1 star reviews on here so that made me more hesitant. After jumping into try it for myself, I would say that this is the best "touch" mouse option for the Mac. It works great and doesn't stop working if the surface gets a little oily which can happen over the course of hours when you're working. It has a couple of gestures and multitouch functions that didn't come with the Logitech. I haven't had the issues that most of the 1 star reviewers are reporting fortunately. I think most of the time, people review things when they're bad and not enough people leave reviews when things go well. If you're hesitant to try it out, don't let these reviews stop you. Plus, you can always return it if it doesn't work. I caught a sale price at Best Buy and used some rewards certificates to help get the price down. One thing that would be nice is if Apple came up with an ergonomic option or an option for people with larger hands.

    Apple could do better

    • Written by Ralph S from Augusta

    Magic Mouse 2 just as functional and reliable as former products HOWEVER,,,,,, do feel given quality Apple has used in previous years in its products and services a better design would've been utilized which would enable use of mouse while "charging" battery. Either that or a "AA" battery compartment whereby batteries could be inserted as an emergency or temporary source of power until charging of main battery is feasible. I know Apple has some smart people. They just need to use those brains more wisely toward product designs and performance.

    Location of charge input

    • Written by Douglas I from Kelowna

    I can't believe the number of people who whine about the fact that the charger input is on the bottom...including one person who went on a diatribe about running out of power in the midst of working on a deadline project. What's the problem.

    A two minute charge will give you 9 hours of working time. Can't you just plug it in for two minutes and go take a leak, or grab a coffee? Sheesh!

    I have some minor issues with the mouse but charging ain't one of them.

    Who approved this?

    • Written by Kaitlin C from Holladay

    Poor design - the charging port is on the bottom so you can't use the mouse while it's charging. Also it's not very ergonomic: too flat and hurts my hand after a few hours of use.

    I do think it's an improvement from the first magic mouse though. I like that it's rechargeable and the battery life lasts forever!

    Terrible

    • Written by R O from Pine brook

    Two main reasons why I think this mouse is terrible:
    - Multitouch functions poorly causing the mouse to constantly scroll any medium you try to click
    - Useless while charging which defeats its purpose when Macbook is clamshelled

    quality needs to be better

    • Written by Heather V from Brampton

    the shape and design are horrible and don't contour your hand at all .. the mouse itself connects and disconnects without even hitting the on/off switch and when connected to a charging port it refuses to charge. If the more expensive version was guaranteed to work i would purchase it no problem but apple needs to step up its game. The brand name isn't worth all the bugs and diminished quality of products.

    Magic Mouse 2 Review

    Touch Gestures are great

    • Written by Shavindra M from Anuradhapura

    I use this mouse for couple of weeks. With this mouse there are some really cool features and some drawbacks as well. Touch based gestures are really nice most of the time. It actually work lot better and effectively compared to other mouses on Mac. Mouse is little bit smaller and not comfortable to hold for extended period of work. Charging the mouse is not convenient. But the good thing is 2 minute of charging gives about 9 hours of working time.

    Charging point underneath and not enough warning when battery is low

    • Written by Philippa F from Cirencester

    So, working away on a project, up against a deadline, I'm sure a large amount of graphic designers are Apple's custom, and a warning comes up on the screen 'mouse batteries low' so I go to check how low and it's 1%, no time to do anything about it, it just died on me, leaving my urgent exhibition job hanging in the breach. My work is full on and deadlines are always very tight and the one thing that let me down was Apple. I said to my husband, "Look at this" and showed him the mouse, he said "Can't you use it when it's charging, that's not very good!" I said "That's Apple!" his response was "I thought they were better than that!" Sums it up really. Refuse to buy another one and line Apple's pocket when the first one does not live up to the standards of what I expect from Apple. Terrible design!

    Magic Mouse 2 not quiet!

    • Written by Bob P from Mansfield

    I like the Magic Mouse 2, as I did the MM1. It's one of the most reliable mice that I've ever used....BUT they're also one of the noisiest mice there is! It's time that Apple made a Magic Mouse 3 with all the features of the MM2, but QUIETER!!!

    Good looking but poor implementation

    • Written by Viktor E from Amsterdam

    The mouse is very slick and good looking but, but it is terrible to use. The right click is terrible and sometimes lifts the whole mouse. The clicks themselves are frontal to the mouse, so if you click just a bit more towards the middle it acts weirdly. Also no middle click.

    Charging port placement is a design flaw second only to hockey puck mouse

    • Written by Dave G from San Diego

    When I get the warning that the battery is low, it's too late. I have to stop working and plug it in, because it's going to die any second. Because the port is on the bottom, I can't use my computer.

    How about warning me when the battery level is 25 percent, so I can make it through the end of the day? I love everything else about this mouse, but this issue is nearly a deal-breaker. I want to give it a one-star because of how bad the impact can be on my productivity. Trying hard to be objective as I'm sitting here yet again unable to use my computer while this mouse is charging.

    I have 2 of these mice

    • Written by Keith B from FRANKSTON

    Neither will connect to my desktop iMac nor my MacBook. I had some success with one mouse recently. It worked beautifully for three weeks. It has since decided to become uncommunicative again. I guess I will have to buy another Logitech mouse.

    Best mouse ever!!!

    • Written by Reid G from Fort Calhoun

    This mouse works very well. It is wireless and rechargeable. I don't mind charging a mouse. I never have to replace batteries. It has the same charging port as iPad and iPhone. It is very sensitive. Best mouse ever. I cannot believe I have seen a lot of negative reviews. I am glad I ignored all the negative reviews. I have not had an issue with it so far.

    HORRIBLE PRODUCT

    • Written by Sterling J

    The biggest waste of money. I bought this because I generally love using a mouse instead of the mouse pads on the computer, so I thought this mouse was a good idea. Well, I thought wrong. This mouse barely works on any surface, and it's way slower than using the mouse pad. Save your money instead of buying this product.

    gimmick, garbage, gestures are not responsive

    • Written by Jerry T from Mississauga

    looks sleek. innovative, but does not function as well as a hundred dollar mouse should. very disappointed in this. the gesture taps are unresponsive, the right click is poorly designed (you have to lift your left finger for a right click, or hold down command - makes for uncomfort), not everyone loves a low, flat mouse, and the glass top scratches VERY EASILY...not sure if it's even glass..

    overall a very disappointed customer and I would not recommend this mouse to anyone. get it together apple.

    Love the design, not that way to charge it

    • Written by Catherine M. C from Portland

    The only thing I don't like about this mouse is that it's unusable while charging. The design fits well in my hand and feels comfortable. Why not create a mouse like the keyboard where you plug it in and can still use it. That you are unable to do that is a real design flaw in my opinion.

    magic mouse 2

    • Written by Barbara V from Smithville

    I would give this mouse a less than one if possible. The engineer who designed this must have gotten his degree from low budget a online school. You can't use it while it is charging, THE PORT IS ON THE BOTTOM. It gives you no warning that the battery is low, it just quits working. I have had mine about 7 months and it won't charge anymore. I paid $100.00 for a piece of junk.
