    Great Mouse - Don't Understand the Negative Reviews

    I've been using the Magic Mouse 2 for about 2 weeks and I'm very happy with the performance. I'm switched over from a logitech mouse with a scrolling roller, so I did need to get used to the feel. It took a day at most. Like other reviewers, I was perplexed by the choice to put the charging port on the bottom. After using the mouse without needing to charge it for two week, I must say these complaints are a bit overblown. The charge lasts a very long time and it doesn't take very long to get a sustainable charge. As someone whose had to run out to the store to get batteries for a mouse because they died, I have to say having a rechargeable battery is a big upgrade.

    I find the mouse comfortable and easy to use. It does take a little time to get used to how it functions and my guess is that it won't be right for everyone, but I'm quite satisfied and the biggest complaints are overblowm imho.

    Really feels like magic!

    I have been using a wired mouse for 13 years and was reluctant to change!
    3 days ago I decided it was time for a change!

    This mouse is easy to install, feels great, and looks fab!
    There are instructions to make the most of the mouse if you click mouse in System Prefs.

    The mouse powers down if you dont use it, not sure how long, maybe an hour? So you dont need to turn it off overnight, though Apple say its best to turn it off if you plan not to use it for a while, maybe week or more?

    I have used it a few hours each day for 3 days, its down by 12%, so I guess it will last 3 weeks or so without charging. It comes with a USB cable which you need to use for recharging, to the computer or iphone recharger.

    You cant use the mouse while recharging, the only bad point, as the cable port is under the mouse, crazy! Best to recharge overnight anyway, when it gets down to 3-5% I reckon.

    So, at the moment, after 3 days, I love it!

    Works Great!

    I love this mouse so far, I find it fairly comfortable in the hand, dinging this mouse for not being ergonomically comfortable is kind of a farce, comfort is one of those things that is relative and personal preference. I myself find it to be comfortable, the high build quality and glass of the surface makes scrolling and the built in gestures of OS X a breeze and a joy to use, the battery lasts forever and charges quickly, I understand some people find the lighting port on the bottom to be a bit of a strange choice, but it's not used that often so, doesn't bother me any, and I can understand the choice, couldn't really put on the front because of the shape of the mouse, and it seems like it would be dumb to change the entire design just to put it there, also putting it on the side seems very odd as well. This mouse has worked very well for me, my suggestion, if you've got an Apple Retail store by you head into the store and try it out in person.

    Stupid Charging Port

    Who the "genius" that put the charging port under a mouse?
    Why don't you put the charging port under laptop as well? sound genius too right?
    Because you only care about taking our money!
    I'm so regret and disappointed with this so called "Magic Mouse".

    Works Good, pretty light

    The mouse is good and I'm happy that I can charge it. The comments about the edge being too sharp is BS and the mouse does not double click when you want a single click. It's all lies. it is lighter than the older version because there are no batteries.

    Needs to be redesigned

    Am I the only one getting almost cut from the edge of the mouse? Apple, please make round edges on next design so it doesn't cut the finger after a while of use. Also, whenever I work on photoshop the canvas is always moving all over the place because of the sensitivity... annoying. I've tried taking that off but can't seem to be able.

    But the rounded edges is a must for next design.

    Do it again, do it right!

    The entire top is loose, which makes it two clicks when pressed down. When pushing down, the top of the mouse hits the bottom part of the mouse, causing an annoying can-like sound. The entire mouse is unsteady on flat ground, which adds another annoying sound!

    How do I supose to work during the charging?

    Awful, save your money for some other Apple product

    I really like Apple products - my iPhone, my iPad Air 2, my MacBook 12... they are all well-designed and work beautifully.

    Take the trackpad on the MacBook 12. It can be 'clicked' anywhere (the trackpad surface doesn't move) with the same soft pulse feedback. It is easy to scroll or drag by using one finger. It even has Force Touch for a secondary function.

    Now consider this 'Magic Mouse':
    - Hand cannot rest on the flat, low surface
    - Uncomfortably sharp sides
    - Entire top surface moves when clicked
    - Too much force required to click, too loud as well
    - Can't scroll sideways when used with Windows/Bootcamp. Can't zoom either. Can only scroll up and down, usually by accident
    - Does not track movement reliably

    What a dud!
    Better off with a Logitech MX Anywhere 2 - better in every respect, except perhaps for the sci-fi design.

    Sorry Apple, I've tried to be fair... and I hope this helps someone, even someone to design a better mouse - take that minimalist style which I like, and blend it with functionality, please.

    Much better than Magic Mouse 1

    My Magic Mouse 1 was good, and I only replaced it because it died.
    I read these reviews and found that the main complaint was that the charging port was underneath it and this made it impossible to use like a mouse with a tail while charging. IMHO the charging port is in the right place - underneath where it is less likely to get filled with dirt. Complaining that the mouse is not available to use while charging is not realistic when a full charge lasts for about a month. Even if one had forgotten to put it on charge, putting it on charge for the time it would take to get and install a new set of batteries on Magic Mouse 1, there should give enough charge to continue using for the rest of the day.
    I like using a mouse that is not tied to the USB port - for those who really want to use a mouse with a tail, Apple have a very good one that is cheaper than the Magic Mouse 2

    It is simple to check the level of charge: Select the Bluetooth icon on the toolbar. Hover the pointer over the 'mouse name' and the level of charge will appear in a window.

    Best mouse ever created

    I cannot understand the negative reviews for this, or the previous generation, wireless mouse.

    This is (in my most humble opinion) the best mouse ever created. Combine it with BetterTouchTool and one can tap-to-click and use all sorts of gestures in ways which no other mouse could ever replicate. The scrolling function (for which no other app is necessary) is in itself reason to use this mouse above all others.

    And the ergonomics are excellent. I swore to myself that I would stock up on replacements at the slightest hint that the previous generation (that is, the one powered by AA batteries) would be discontinued. I was very pleased to see that Apple did not decide to do anything of the sort. While I have two mice of the previous generation (one each for use with my Macbook Pro and Mac Pro) I have switched to using the new model for both of my Macs as:

    - I find it doesn't disconnect from my Macbook Pro whilst the Macbook Pro is running on battery power (something I found happened more often with the latest OS X 10.11 betas);
    - the mouse does actually slide more smoothly along one's desk;
    - its very easy to change the pairing of the mouse via USB (this is clearly a feature which was introduced given the problems which the previous generation faced with pairing with multiple Macs).

    Charging port on the bottom? Really?

    Whose bright idea was it to put the charging port right on the bottom of the mouse? It's such a pain to charge, because you can't use it while it's charging. At least before I could charge batteries, and just swap the discharged ones with fresh ones. Now I can't use my mac at all while the mouse is charging. Plus, I can't charge it overnight because my employer requires me to shut down my mac. So I had to get a wall wart in order to charge the mouse. Not very well thought out, was it, Apple? Put the charging port on the side so I can use it while it's charging... please!

    This mouse lacks precision.

    It'snon-ergonomic and results in sore writs from even modest use.

    You cannot right click without completely lifting all other fingers from the mouse.

    The charging port is on the bottom and WILL NOT charge as quickly as apple states unless you use a 1A charger which you will not get from the USB port on your mac. Because of this design, when the li-po battery inside degrades (which will happen in 2-3 years no matter what), the mouse is garbage.

    It is VERY picky about the surface that it will be able to read.

    Just about any other mouse on the planet is superior. They're design to fit the human hand.

    Good mouse

    I wouldn't say it's worth the upgrade over the first Magic Mouse, but if you just need a decent mouse that works well with your Mac you can't go wrong with this. It works perfectly and the build quality is great, just as you'd expect from Apple.

    Great Mouse!

    If you like the original Magic Mouse then you will love this as it removes the need to carry spare batteries...

    The charging port is on the bottom and while it can't be used while charging, a full charge only takes a couple of hours and should last about a month. If you do forget to charge it and run out, then a quick charge of a few minutes (while you go and get a drink etc) will last you about a day.

    Never worked

    Did not work out of box. Updated the OS. Still failed. Really? A mouse that my system won't even recognize. What's become of Apple?

    Magic Mouse 2 & Keyboard review

    I recently (Nov 2015) purchased one of the new iMac late 2015 models that included the new keyboard & mouse. I must say that I am impressed so far with the battery life as both are still working off the initial charge (3 months later), currently (25% & 18%). While I agree that having the charge port on the bottom of the mouse is a poor design however, it does not bother me. I am a highly technical person but I do not use this imac every day for hours at end since I already spend hours at a computer at work daily. I also have the common sense to turn off the mouse & keyboard when i'm not using it so i'm pretty sure that makes a difference in the battery life.

    Overall i give them both a thumbs up.

    I had the original mouse but it became faulty- batteries needed changing every 2 days.
    I went to the Manchester Apple shop and they kindly exchanged it for the MM2.
    Being rechargeable is a big plus and it is also smoother to use.
    Thanks Apple

    Worst mouse ever

    Why would anyone think of putting the charge plug on the bottom? If you want a cordless mouse that is fine but it is required to be able to use the mouse while it is recharging.

    Avoid this mouse at all cost.
