    Lightning charge capability convenient

    I use this with my MacBook Pro instead of using the laptop's trackpad. Responsive and the gesture features are fantastic. Charges quickly without having to continuously swap out batteries.

    Excellent Refresh of an Apple Mouse

    After using this product for a few months the Apple mouse has served its use remarkably well.
    It still retains it's charge cycle and has that month long usage after a two hour charge.
    I use the mouse regularly each hour several hours a day and there's been no issue with it running out.

    For those at work who dock their phone or have a lighting cable there, one a month usually upon the battery warning appears, simply connect it on the way home and it'll be ready for the next day and month. Alternative is during the lunch break if it appears earlier in the day, a quick lunch break charge will leave it ready for about half a month so there is real concern for the battery every running out.
    Rechargeable upgrade is definitely a perk over storing a cabinet of time degrading batteries.

    Usability is excellent is the precision and speed for pointer specific uses is excellent. It glides over all desks, with wood being the least smooth but by no means rough.
    The trackpad like surface above with multitouch may seem excessive a technology for the gestures but what it allows is for one to rest the hand comfortably on the mouse without a palm arch on higher mouses without triggering off undated gestures. Multi-touch means the mouse will recognise deliberate movements over general hand movements that occur naturally during the movement and use of the mouse. A right click mode is available whereby the touch top recognises the mouse button was clicked solely on the right side triggering a right click command, it's seamless and intuitive as are the gestures which allow excellent workflow and control.

    It's a clean good looking mouse, which functions superbly and as stated. Having excellent battery life and ergonomics (though it may take some adapting for "avocado in your palm" mice users such as myself, but this is entirely like getting used to a different car)
    It's compact, pairs instantly upon lightning connection to your MacOS device and comes with a 95% charge so it's ready to go for a month.

    For those who clean their mice it has little other than a wipe down and a mildly damp cloth along the mouse edges to pick up dust means the mouse is easy to clean.

    Excellent technologies and engineering come together without flaunting individual strengths against one another to provide a mouse that for all it's strengths retains user end usability and quality for efficiency of work and durability.

    Would happily recommend to all those needing a mouse especially Macbook family users in need of extra fine pointer precision and heavy mouse work, an excellent pairing to the Macbook's trackpad.

    Seriously what was Jonathan Ive thinking?

    Dear Jonathan Ive, shame on you for this poor design decision. You are better than that.
    I feel that Apple contracted out this design to some 3rd party. (you did, didn't you).

    But do not be discouraged, I have the perfect solution to the dilemma. Sell Magic mouse 2 and 1 together in dbl pack.

    Love!

    I am not sure what the complaints are about on this mouse...works great with my new MacBook and was quick/easy to pair. I love how intuitive it is with the gestures etc - I wish I could sync with my non-Apple laptop and use it for work also! I love the sleek design. The fact that the charger connection is on the bottom of the device doesn't really bother me since it seems to hold its charge really well (and charges in just two hours) - I don't really see this as being an issue - and so awesome you don't need batteries! I was a little hesitant to pay the $79 cost for this, but I am so glad I did! Another satisfied Apple purchase.

    Really great mouse

    I've had some other mice that I've used (bluetooth) and each one has had some major connectivity issues. 70% of the time they'd connect within 5 minutes of waking the computer up, but the other 30, they would take about 30 minutes or so. This one is always instantly connected! I am so thrilled about this as I do video and photo editing quite often and really need the precision of a mouse. I love the gesture support, and quickly got used to using the gestures. For people with a Mac, yes it's a little pricy compared to other options, but this mouse really is worth the price. The battery also has incredible life, and charges very quickly. If it dies, then I just plug it in, get up and get a drink or go for a probably much needed walk, and then when I come back (maybe 5-10 minutes later usually) it has enough juice to last another couple of days if I needed it to. It charges very quickly. I can't imagine using any other mouse from now on with my Mac.

    Great product

    This is a great upgrade. Feedback/sensitivity is improved compared to last gen, works out of the box, and battery life is great. Using with El Capitan.

    Doesn't stay connected

    Terrible mouse at a ridiculous price. It barely holds a bluetooth connection for a minute. One is much better off to spend a fraction of the price on a much more reliable bluetooth mouse.

    Never thought I would rate Apple product so low

    1. USB charging port is on the bottom of the mouse. Not only you can not use a mouse while charging, but it also has to be in a strange position during charging process (on a side or upside down). I don't understand how such design solution got through.
    2. Magic Mouse 2 is not fully supported on Yosemite - scrolling and gestures don't work. Yes, you can update to El Capitan, but it is corporate Mac - I can not upgrade... I can understand if there are hardware limitations, but locking key features in a software... And it is only one version down.... Very disappointed.
    3. Scrolling speed by default is very low and to adjust scrolling you need to dig through the accessibility settings... What's up with that? Should such settings be on a mouse tab?

    I put the second star, just because when it is charged and coupled with El Capitan - it works ok. But not different from Magic Mouse 1....

    Amazing mouse

    I bought it and it became brilliant for me. I am using it with me MacBook. And i must say that it is very comfortable, I am using it at home or in places with table. So I say that it is brilliant.

    Questionable design decision

    I never review products, but the position of the charging port on this mouse makes no sense. What is going to happen, is it's going to die and then I'm going to need to dig out my old mouse to use while I charge this one. Just moving the port and enabling the mouse to charge and be used at the same time would make this a great product. Honestly I would prefer the rechargeable batteries to this. The day to day use of this mouse is just fine, no complaints. This design decision however, concerns me. I feel like Apple is slipping. They used to go the next step with design, and now it seems they are falling just short on a number of things.

    Good BUT

    It's a great mouse design. I was a little appalled however Apple but the plug perpendicular and on the bottom making the mouse impossible to use while charging?! Why? Functions quite well otherwise. Magic Mouse 3 which hopefully follows soon should also have the fingerprint reader from the latest iPhones. It would be a great improvement for the Mac line of devices.

    Amazing and very light

    This mouse is awesome. I am very impressed with how much battery life this mouse has. I can tell the difference between my old magic mouse and the new magic mouse 2.Though there is one thing I dont like about the mouse and it's that whenever I charge it, I can't tell if the mouse is fully charged or not. When I plug it into my Mac, I can see the battery life but I'm not always on my mac so if there was a light that flashed that says if it's fully charger or not on it, it would be more helpful. Otherwise the mouse is awesome!

    WHY WHY WHY WHY

    The lightning port is placed at a horrible position. I want to be able to charge and use the mouse at the same time. That's really impossible with the magic mouse 2. And I also don't want to use batteries.

    Apple Magic Mouse 2 is Great!

    I bought the Apple Magic Mouse 2 a few weeks ago for my iMac. Previously just used a track pad, but decided I needed a mouse for more delicate photo editing chores. It is everything a great piece of equipment should be and it works very well. I was concerned about the negative reviews on the poor design of the charging system. The folks who wrote these reviews need to get a reality check about their abilities to evaluate good design. Simply put, there is no issue with the charging system that any normal person could find fault with. Yes, you can't use the mouse while charging it, but who cares. Are there really people out there who are using their mouse 24 hours per day? I have had the mouse in the on position for the better than two weeks that I've used it, and it is still at 90% charge. This is a great product that I would highly recommend.

    Stupid AND great

    This mouse is brilliant but designed by an idiot (or team of idiots). The feel of the mouse, the functionality, the build quality are all class-leading... but who in the world thought that sticking the charging port on the base of the mouse was a good idea?! And not allowing the mouse to be used whilst being charged? Seriously?! WHY? What a stupid thing to do Apple. What does someone do when they're working and their mouse runs out? Am I expected to buy two of these things??? Aargh.

    Here's a solution, Apple... what if the mouse could become a wired mouse whilst charging? Stick the port in the front-end of the mouse and have it work whilst charging so I don't have to use my laptops trackpad for intricate design work.

    An AMAZING Mouse!!

    I absolutely love the Magic Mouse 2!! Being new to Apple products and getting used to all the gestures, the Magic Mouse 2 is an excellent addition. I'm able to swipe between windows, navigate emails and do all other tasks with such ease and efficiency!! I love this Magic Mouse. Like anything else Apple, the design is so perfect, so clean and so elegant!! I would highly recommend the Magic Mouse 2 to anyone!!

    Poor connectivity

    The mouse still has the problems that the previous version had i.e randomly disconnecting and reconnecting which can be very inconvenient and frustrating. This happened on the first day I owned my new iMac. I am having to use my old USB mouse - this should not happen with a brand NEW computer :(

    Charging and Using this Mouse Proves to be Problematic

    An average user would assume that charging while in use would be capable with this mouse. Not only does the industrial design itself prevent this, the actual software within the mouse prevents itself from being useful while charging.

    TL;DR
    The design is not useful, and the software has very painful UX realizations. I do not recommend.

    great idea! not!!!

    Charge port on bottom. C'mon! Just fire the people who thought that would impress anyone. If charging was a ounce in a while kind of thing maybe, but this is all the time and irritating. The "B" team must have been in charge of this one.
