    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.

    Magic Mouse 2

    Magic Mouse 2 appears to be a step backward when compared to the original mac mouse. There is absolutely no magic in this product. it cannot scroll on the page or do any of the other great stuff that the original mouse does. These nuances could turn you off from using apple and I am a Mac girl all the way. I am truly disappointed in this purchase. I gave the magic mouse 2 a one because there is no zero.

    Works just fine, getting 1+ week of usage

    I was wary of purchasing the mouse after seeing the negative reviews.
    Took the plunge and was glad i did.
    Works just fine...
    No lagging or losing bluetooth.
    I use it about 8 hours per day and it is lasting > 1 week so far.

    I would give it 5 stars but as others mentioned, the lightning port for charging is at the bottom.... so it is 4 stars only!!!

    Imagine this with Force Touch!

    If apple integrated force touch technology from the new iphones/trackpads, this mouse would actually destroy every competitor. I don't understand why they didn't update this mouse with new hardware the moment they innovated force touch tech. The major disadvantage with this mouse is that you can't hold the right click and left click at the same time - which force touch could easily bypass. but more annoying is that the mouse scanner is situated at the top underneath the mouse, at the front. apple's is at the top, which makes it hard to accurately move the mouse sometimes - you have to adapt to it. apple put their logo at the centre which is where the scanner laser is supposed to be. The centre of movement is at the centre but this mouse wants it to be at the front which makes no sense when you think about how the hand moves - it moves sideways in circular rotation rather than just forward and backwards. Apple seriously need to fix those problems, but even then - this mouse does look sexy when viewing it. The touch gestures on the device is great, and the design and battery life is awesome - don't listen to the people complaining about battery life. It may only be an issue if apple adds force touch to the future magic mouse 3, as i assume it will take up some battery use - but battery life is actually too long on the magic mouse 2. I expected it to be way shorter battery life. SO: 1 star for battery, 1 star for design, 1 star for touch gestures. -1 star for not adding force touch, -1 star for bad scanning laser/logo position.

    Without a shadow of a doubt the worst mouse i've ever used

    I'd give this a 0/5 if I could.

    I've used this mouse for about two months now. I was previously using a Logitech G502 on Windows, and just using the trackpad on my MacBook. I wanted a mouse for when the MacBook is docked.

    The movement scheme for this mouse is dreadful. There is absolutely no precision. This product is an example of choosing ascetics over function. I actually thought that maybe the macOS movement scheme for mice was just wrecked, then I popped my Logitech G502 and everything was fine with that mouse. The magic mouse is horribly unergonomic. It's incredibly uncomfortable to use. It has horrible weighting. It does not glide across a mouse pad or a clean surface easily. And worst of all, you can't charge it while using it because the genius who designed it put the charging port on the bottom.

    Having said that their are a few redeeming qualities, unfortunately they don't make this mouse worth a purchase. The touch features are really nice for switching desktops and the multi touch features for activating Mission Control. The natural scrolling is nice as well. If Apple could design a mouse like Logitech's chassis, ergonomics, buttons, and precision, and their own ascetics and touch features it would be a godsend.

    I wish I could return this piece of garbage. Oh well. Without a shadow of a doubt, the absolute worst Apple product I've ever purchased.

    Manic Mouse

    Battery-life? Max 4 days! I have to switch off this mouse while using a bluetooth-headphone. Because it's so hysterically connecting/disconnecting all the time! It also does all kind of things I didn't intend to do. And then there is the charging on the bottom........I guess Apple is preparing us for life with dongles. Sad product.

    Brilliant Product

    Very well designed, pairing was a breeze and works well. Only issue is the charging port at the bottom of the mouse. The mouse cannot be used while it is charging although even a quick short charge is enough to get through the day's work.

    Jumping cursor

    I've had my mouse for about a month and whilst I like the ability to charge it, the pointer constantly jumps around the screen.

    Also, then using in Adobe's InDesign, it is difficult to click inside a text box without the entire text box moving ever so slightly.

    I don't have any of these problems with my Logitech MX Master.

    Not sure if it's just mine, but I'm unimpressed.

    Excellent Mouse

    The Magic Mouse 2 is great - it's well built, works perfectly with a Mac, is incredibly comfortable and it's great to still have the gesture capabilities. The fact the Lightning port is on the bottom of the mouse doesn't hinder the product in my opinion as the battery lasts an incredible amount of time and you can check the battery life from the task bar on a Mac. Great product.

    Changed how I look at apple

    I had the original mouse and was having connectivity issues with it for a long time. After upgrading to this mouse I thought my problems would be solved. I was wrong, the mouse is still disconnecting and refuses to stay connected. I have tried everything including contacting apple support. I like the functionality of the product, but will no longer try apple products because they are unwilling to back their own products.

    Completely idiotic design

    Whoever designed this new mouse should be fired, it is completely and utterly a terrible decision to put the charging port on the underside of the mouse, you cannot use the mouse while it is charging! Anyone with half a brain would have thought to put the charging port somewhere that would still allow users to use the mouse while it is charging. This is a downgrade from the easy to use and easy to recharge battery powered Apple Magic Mouse generation 1. My advice is DO NOT BUY, buy a better wireless mouse from any other company.
