    Can't use whilst charging

    Can't use this device whilst charging due to port location.

    If someone thinks that is acceptable, I suggest to you they are a lightweight computer user who can tolerate a few minutes delay in the utility of their computer.

    However, some of us don't have that luxury of laziness or infrequent use. For us, this design is unacceptable. I returned mine and went back to using the replaceable-battery original.

    Sleek and useful.

    Very nicely designed. Sleek. Purposeful.
    Allows me to click, grab and move objects with precision.
    Comes charged and ready to use.

    They need to upgrade the USB cable to a thunderbolt

    The mouse is good and the battery life once you have fully charged it is good. The only issue is you have to find a wall adapter if you have a new style mac as there is only a usb cable in the box. This really is annoying as its an extra thing to carry, or i will have to begrudgingly purchase a thunderbolt to usb adapter.

    Puzzled by the bad reviews

    I am puzzled by the tone of some of the bad reviews here. This is a great device!

    Maybe you're used to using something by Logitech, but don't knock a device that you only have to charge once in a very blue moon for not being able to charge and use at the same time. Really, this is not a device you ever really have to worry about charging!!

    Personally, I think this is a superior product to Apple's last bluetooth Magic Mouse. I liked that mouse, but felt it didn't always have very good gravity (or something like that... the thing seemed to float in my hand, periodically). This one is more weighted towards the rear, with the result being that you hand seems to intuitively understand where it is supposed to be. It just feels more natural.

    By all means get a mouse with more buttons, if you need. But for me (mostly, writing, but some media processing and multitasking stuff, and some light gaming), this mouse just feels like your favorite pen. Very natural in the hand. A simple pleasure. You hardly know its there. And that, I think, is the whole point.

    Charging Problems

    Really hate that the charging port is located on the bottom side of the mouse. This makes it impossible to use while charging and requires me to keep a second (original) Magic Mouse handy for the inevitable times when the mouse dies before I get a chance to throw it on the charger at the end of the work day. Terrible oversight and design flaw. Really disappoints this 20+ year Apple user. =(

    Not the most ergonomic mouse, but it fits my mac's style!

    -Battery needs to be charged once a year, maybe twice for extreme users.
    -Ergonomics aren't great, design and looks make up for that
    -NO way to change the acceleration (remove..) or customise gestures (added value there Apple!)

    Full Story:
    The battery port on the bottom for people who havent actually used it: "Worst design ever" "1 star" "what happened to Apple?"
    - For me? "Oh, it's still on 84% after 3 months of leaving it on and using it as i come and go"

    This thing just doesn't use battery, ever. One of the claims, which I completely believe after using it, is that in 2 minutes (!) charging time you can get 9 hours of use out of it. 9 HOURS.

    Apart from that, I've owned way more comfortable mice, gaming mice, with better buttons, weight, ergonomics, tracking, etc.. But those aren't as thin as my MBP 2017 nor as sleek designed.

    What I'm really missing is a way to customise mouse acceleration and gestures, mostly REMOVE mouse acceleration, having used non accelerated mice for my entire life, and really loving it too, makes using this mouse not as an added value to my production cycle as it could have been. Also it would greatly add extra value if certain self made gestures (like drawing a circle on your mouse's surface) would be able to be bound to (custom) actions.

    Best Mouse I've Ever Owned!

    I like many others, I read a bunch of reviews about the Magic Mouse 2 and didn't really know what to make of them. I love my MacBook Pro's touchpad gestures for switching between desktops and use it constantly in my work. I wanted to have the same feature on my mouse since it was availability and I'm so glad I picked up this mouse.

    The main complaint I saw about the Magic Mouse 2 was the charging port and it's placement on the bottom. I'm here to tell you that I don't understand the complaint one bit. I've had the mouse on my desk and turned on for 3 weeks now with only 1 charge and it's still at 83% battery life. It's going to last well over a month on one charge with daily use and it can be charged passively over night or between uses.

    As for usability, it' feels sturdy in the hand like a quality product should, the price is great based on it's quality and engineering, it offers features that enrich my Mac experience.

    I wish I could give it more stars but hopefully you will find this review useful and understand that the charge port placement is very secondary.

    Love it!

    Reading some of these really negative and picky reviews I was hesitant replace my old broken Apple mouse and I was pleasantly surprised. The only real difference is that it no longer requires batteries which is a huge improvement.. The power cord will fit one's Iphone charger also.
    I dont get the big fuss over the charger inlet being on the bottom. It is not a big deal.

    Works great!

    I was really worried to purchase the magic mouse because of all the bad reviews about charge and functionality. I will say that I purchased it now almost 2 months ago and use it every day, and haven't charged it yet (and it's still at 57%). I really like having a mouse because using a track pad too much hurts my hands, and this fits the bill. I also really like how there is swiping functionality on the mouse to scroll, move between screens, etc.
    Don't listen to the bad reviews!

    Meh - not great, but you don't have much choice

    I am new to Apple and recently purchased a MacBook Pro which came with the Magic Mouse 2. Coming from PC where I used a nice, ergonomic Logitech mouse, I can't say that I like this thing at all. As others noted, the charging port is on the bottom making it useless when being charged. The mouse is completely symmetrical so it feels terrible in your hand. It doesn't feel natural and is awkward to hold.

    With regard to the the tracking, the response feel sluggish. I like the mouse to feel "overly sensitive" when moving it across the screen, but I can't get this mouse to be that reactive. I have the mouse on the fastest tracking speed, but it isn't enough in my opinion.

    Overall the quality feels good and it is a pretty. I just can't recommend it as a practical.

    Sleek but a piece of junk!

    This mouse has design flaws the are horrible!!!

    One being the charging port is located on the bottom of the mouse making it unusable while charging.

    Another issue is the right click menu pops up directly under the pointer and the first item on the menu is the "BACK" option which causes me to lose all the data I had been working hours on. Ugh!!! This menu needs to be moved so that the pointer is NOT already on the "BACK" option!!!!!

    Absolutely love this mouse

    So I've been using the previous magic mouse with the batteries that are rechargeable and it was great and easy to use. The only thing that was a pain in the behind was that the plate on the bottom that held the batteries in would fall off or come loose from time to time. It was only slightly annoying. Well it stopped working well for some unknown reason and I decided to order a new mouse and see that they have redesigned it . I just got my new mouse and I love it so much. It is so easy to use , so light and smooth and quick. I work on my computer all day and I need to be quick and the mouse makes all the difference. I'm super happy with it and no more batteries to fall out the bottom. It's perfect !! Thanks Apple! I use to be a PC but now I'm a MAC and I love my Mac and my Magic Mouse 2 !

    Happy Girl

    Recharging problems

    Placing recharging at the bottom of the mouse so it can't be used, makes it impossible to use my computer if I
    neglect to recharge the mouse. Also, if the computer is shut down, the recharging doesn't take place?

    I am shocked at this poor design. I hope you are still selling the battery-run mice.. I hope Apple pays attention to these reviews and
    redesigns the rechargeable mice. I have a new one that is unopened. I hope to return it for a design that works!

    What's happening to Apple?

    Beautifly useless

    1. Disconnects frequently and that is extremely annoying.
    2. Sometimes completely loses connection and does not reconnects despite being fully charged and close to iMac. Powering mouse on/off does not help. After rebooting iMac a few times with an air of $8 wired PC mouse I was so infuriated that returned the iMac back to Apple.
    3. Charging port location is amazing in its dumbness. It's like placing a cup's handle INSIDE the cup.
    4. Very LOUD clicking sound!

    Entirely worthless and expensive piece of junk. If you need a mouse - get a 3-rd party one, preferably not a bluetooth. If gestures are so important - use a touchpad instead.

    Great mouse,with only one complaint

    This mouse works well and easy to clean.
    (other than not being able to use it while it is charging,)
    It would help if the charging port was on the front of the mouse instead of the bottom but it charges fast and reliable.
    Its a great simple mouse that does everything you need once configured to your personal needs.
    and it works on my 2016 iMac as well as my 2008 iMac.

    System Requirements
    Bluetooth-enabled Mac computer with OS X v10.11 or later.

    Works like it should

    I know there are many reviews out there of people getting really upset that the mouse has to be flipped and charged. If you can't remember to charge it once a month, then a power up whilst you boil the kettle will get your through to the end of the day. No one is THAT dedicated that you can't give it 10 mins.

    I have a Magic Mouse 1 as well, as the 2 holds its power better. Less battery replacing. Other than that I see very little difference. Great bit of kit.

    Lousiest mouse Apple's ever made!

    Who is Apple hiring these days for their hardware and software...PC people?
    This mouse is rubbish. Cheap feeling, symmetrical (annoying when it's constantly upside down)
    and has a lousy button that like your killing a cockroach - no positive click here!

    Also, thoroughly unreliable, which is unforgivable given it's irrationally high cost.

    I'm sure poor Steve is rolling over in his grave with this one.

    Form over function

    Well, this mouse looks fantastic, but I find it really slows me down whilst working. Ergonomically I find it comfortable, but unresponsive and not really suited to the human hand. There's also the problem of the charging port being placed under the mouse rendering it unusable when charging. I've been using it for 4 months and thought I'd be used to it by now, but alas.
