    Love the battery life

    I love the battery life in this mouse, it lasts forever compared to many. I find the speed very annoying though. I have the speed turned all the way up and still I have to pick it up several times to move across a web. page. Granted my desk is not all that big but none of the rest of my mice have to do that. I would think a hundred dollar mouse could be as good as a Walmart special ten dollar one. I keep using it though because the battery is so good.

    Poor Implementation of Rechargable

    Excellent

    If you're here, it's because you're conflicted about getting this mouse. You've read the negative reviews. Or, you bought it and want to be reassured that you made a good purchase.

    There is nothing wrong with this mouse from a design or functionality standpoint. No connectivity issues whatsoever and it paired with my MacBook Pro with one click.

    I don't understand the negative reviews concerning the charging port. It's a WIRELESS mouse, meant to be used WIRELESSLY. Plus, I've been using it for 2 straight days and the charge has only decreased 2%. It came charged at 90%. You can check the charge level anytime via the Bluetooth icon in your task bar. I haven't had to charge it, but my understanding is that a 5 min charge will go a long way.

    If you've used a Mac trackpad, there's very little adjustment to this mouse in terms of gestures and clicking. Pretty straightforward. I really don't see what some reviewers can't figure out. Then again, I've always driven a mouse with my fingers and not my palm.

    Just remember, Apple develops products/enhancements you don't realize you need yet. Just go back and look at all the initial iPod reviews.

    Quality and weight are very good. Just buy it.

    Only mouseI would use

    I love the battery life on this mouse, I haven't charged it in over a month and its on 92%. Little bit hard to move but it still glides with ease. Wonderful help when moving things. I hated how my Mac wouldn't right click to fix misspelled words but the mouse does. I love the magical feeling of the touch sensor to scroll, swipe, and zoom. Best mouse i have used ever.

    Hate it!

    First of all the complaint of many here - the charging port on the bottom of the mouse means you will probably need a back up mouse as this one cannot be used when charging - the designer and the team who approved this should be sacked. This is clearly ridiculous and glaringly wrong. After all, the wireless key board CAN be used while being charged.

    Secondly, I do not even like it as it does not work well with Adobe LR. Clicking on an image often results in you ending up somewhere you do not want to be, like at the beginning of a folder, or another one altogether, or simply another random image you are not interested in. I have tried every single setting, including disabling all the functions to no effect at all.

    Also, often when I re=start my IMAC 27 inch, top spec latest model, the mouse simply is disconnected and I have to install some software that apple tech sent me to get it to work again.

    Do not waste your money on this. After one year of use, I have put it away as a back up mouse just in case and purchased a non-apple mouse. It works. As it should.

    I HATE THIS THING!

    There is nothing "magic" about the Magic Mouse. I thought the 1st generation Magic Mouse was bad, but this is worse! It is far too heavy, far too sensitive, and far too long, making it painful and exceedingly frustrating to use. I am able to mouse with either hand, and my 4th fingers of both hands have become painful with overuse injuries in a matter of months - I hold the sides of the mouse between my thumb and 4th & 5th fingers to keep my index and middle fingers free for clicking, which I think is normal (5th fingers are just along for the ride because they are adjacent to the 4th fingers which do the "heavy" work with the thumbs). With the base of my hand resting on the mouse pad (separate personal item), my palm and fingers are very close to the mouse's surface, which you would think is a good thing for practical use, but the mouse is SO hypersensitive that when you barely touch it (or come really, really close to it?) in a way that you don't intend while simply holding it or moving it, it does unwanted bizarre things like suddenly doing a big zoom-in or zoom-out of the screen (has already done that while I'm typing this), scrolling your page vertically or horizontally (has already done that while I'm typing this), or sending you to another page you're not currently using, which has caused me lost work, wasted time, and a lot of frustration while using this mouse for my electronic office records. Furthermore, the "clickable" (left & right click) areas of the mouse are at the extreme front of the mouse, which is also problematic. Often my clicks don't register because the mouse is too long - I actually have to lift my hand off the mouse pad and mouse and move my index and middle fingers to the extreme front of the mouse, without accidentally touching it in some other way, in order to click. This mouse is an ergonomic and functional disaster, so much so that I'm going to have to spend more money now to replace it with the expensive Magic Trackpad 2 (pray for me). And, as if that weren't enough, the charging port is on the underside of the mouse so you can't use it while it's charging! How stupid is that? This mouse deserves zero stars, but that option isn't available.

    Design places appearance over function

    Pros:
    - Easy and consistent connectivity
    - OK battery life
    - No noticeable latency
    - Looks nice

    Cons:
    - Does not support multi-clicking (i.e., when you already have one mouse button down and need to hit the other one. Very noticable in Steam games)
    - Uncomfortable for people who don't like the "claw" grip
    - Very easy to mis-click due to having no tangible difference between left click, right click, and scroll
    - (more an OSX issue, but I'm venting) Impossible to configure scroll direction separately for mouse and trackpad. Apparently this is "progress"

    Verdict:
    - Returned Magic Mouse 2, bought a different wireless mouse from a reputable manufacturer

    Poor design, Apple did not think this through!

    Poor design. Purchased 27 inch Mac (have been loyal Apple user for many years; this is my 4th Mac). I did not realize until I went to use my computer this morning that it didn't use batteries. Completely dead, no charging warning or "battery low" indication.
    Searched around for the USB cord once I researched online and realized it doesn't take batteries.
    Plugged it in. No light or any indication that it's charging. Have no idea how charged it is, how much time is needed, and
    the most annoying part? I can't use my computer! Twiddling my thumbs in my office. Sure hope it doesn't take long to charge but how will I know?

    Please fix this Apple!

    Only nice to look at but not to use

    Useless, if you work for 8 hrs a day, how can apple create such a bad design which doesn't fill your hand it's heavy to move it and painfull. I hate apple and their limited blocked closed products

    Fantastic product!

    Noticed there are lot of people complaining about the charging style of the Magic Mouse!! It is absolutely fine the way it is. It is a wireless mouse and it is meant to work wirelessy and not wired. It charges extremely fast and last for long. But I guess people with no understanding on design will think Apple randomly picket the plug port on the belly of Mouse 2. Chill out people.

    Looks Great but Doesn't Work

    Bought the Magic Mouse for my wife's iMac. The battery lasted a ridiculously short period of time so she dumped it. Use it maybe one week. The design is so beyond stupid it's symptomatic of the new Apple philosophy, "We know best so why ask you?" The nitwits running Apple design moved the charging port so you can't use the Mouse while it's charging. Brain dead.

    That's not the worst of it. They removed the indicator light for both Power On and Charging. The new Apple Arrogance in Design.

    So with my $60 mouse in the box I figured I'd pair it to my daughter's new MacBook Pro. Turns out the Mouse died while in the box. Since the POS doesn't have any indicator lights it took a while but I finally proved to myself that it won't charge, it won't pair. It is a DEAD Mouse after one week of actual use.

    I've used Macs since '84. My family still uses them. I have to make $$$ doing CADCAM work so I don't waste my time on Apple products anymore. They used to be best but expensive. Now they only look cool but are behind the curve in everything else. Only the phones are worth the money.

    Steve never was any good at picking his successors.

    One of the worst Apple designs ever!

    If I only had to work with this mouse without worrying about charging, I would probably rate it a 5 star, but whoever signed off this ridiculous charging mechanism, should be fired, in my opinion. The charger cable plugs in from the bottom, which means you cannot use the mouse while charging. Even if the hole was in another spot, it seems that it doesn't work at all while charging. Apple tells us that it's supposed to charge in 5 minutes (!) - well, nonsense - it takes about an hour - one hour, during which you cannot use your computer, unless you have an alternative mouse. Apple support did confirm that 1 hour is the normal time for charging.
    The only good reason I can think of, is that Apple cares about us taking a break from time to time :D

    Piece of Junk

    Bought one of these and generally liked it. Too bad it didn't even last 6 months until it stopped working. No warning at all just stopped working. I have the trackpad which is ridiculous to use since you have to chase it all over the desk because they didn't put rubber feet on it. Just another Apple piece of junk. No wonder Windows is gaining so much ground. May be time to switch back.

    ... the worst product ever from Apple

    Not sure what is going on with Apple but how can it be that a sane person designed Magic Mouse 2?
    I work with Macs from 08:00 am in the morning till 11:30 pm and sometimes later.
    My boss bought this when we bought our newest machine and it is so frustrating to use.
    I will be working and the next thing I know ... there is no power on the mouse. There is LED light to warn you of that. There is no way you could recharge while working. A disaster when you have something fast to do with a mouse.

    This is stupid.

    The most comfortable mouse I ever used

    For others it might not have worked, but for me this mouse has been excellent! It is very comfortable and vert "natural" to the hands. I navigate through my mac/macbook with ease and it is very easy to connect as well. battery life is long too but always keep in mind to check the battery status. overall, I am satisfied and I love this product. the only downside of this is it is pretty expensive for a mouse.

    This Mouse Drives Me Crazy

    Every time I use it it seems like every ten minutes it disconnects on me and then I have to switch it off then back on again wait for the blinking to stop which takes like 3 minutes then it starts working again. The battery also doesn't last long either its like once I put the batteries in then the next 3 days it goes dead. Apple needs to make a better working mouse!

    Fantastic Mouse

    I love the new Magic Mouse. It's much lighter, no more replacing batteries, great battery life (I get about a month to a month and a half out of it). However, the one downside that keeps it from getting 5 stars is the charging port location. It's on the bottom. That means I can't use the mouse while it's charging. Which isn't too bad since it charges in about an hour and it keeps the mouse from being bulky, but it's still a small hindrance.

    Magic Mouse 2

    I bought the Magic Mouse 2, opened the box and did not read the instructions. So small the text. I paired it with my Mac Book Pro but could not find the battery compartment. I saw the attached cable and then I said, no batteries. Lithium Rechargeable Battery a great improvement, Saves me from placing in rechargeable batteries or one time uses batteries that last a month. You will save 50 dollars a year. moves better than the original. Great move on the part of Apple.

    Apple magic mouse 2

    Apple’s new Magic Mouse 2 isn’t really that much different from the original Magic Mouse. It has major changes that affect how the mouse moves and a new built-in battery. But there’s nothing about the Magic Mouse 2 that will make you ditch your current mouse—even if it’s an original Magic Mouse.The exterior design of the Magic Mouse 2 is almost the same as the Magic Mouse. It’s still has a white plastic sliver that rests atop an aluminum case, with no visible buttons or scroll wheel.Flip the mouse over, and you’ll finally see a difference. The Magic Mouse 2 has a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery, so it no longer needs a removable battery cover. Where the latch for the cover used to be is now a Lightning port that is used to recharge the battery.
