    Typical form over function Apple!

    Apple: So now when the mouse goes flat you can charge it! Wow!

    Me: Wireless mice from other companies have been doing that for over fifteen years now. So where's the charging port?

    Apple: On the bottom of the Mouse!!

    Me: So it's completely unusable whilst it's charging?

    Yes, but we didn't want visible ports making it look ugly. Me: (**Throws over shoulder in to bin**)

    Great Mouse, but charging design is seriously flawed

    I haven't had any the connectivity issues reported, nor any of the tracking or precision issues reported. My mouse connects immediately, it's responsive, and if I need more precision, I just slow down the tracking for the task at hand and speed it up when I'm done. Battery life is wholly dependent on usage, and time between charges for me varies.

    However, when I do have to charge, I'm done working until the mouse is recharged - the charging port being on the bottom of the mouse is, for lack of a more suitable term, a stupid design. I used rechargeable batteries in my original Magic Mouse; when they got low, I swapped them for recharged batteries and kept working. Now I need to plug in and walk away until this is one is recharged. I wonder how many charges the internal battery is good for? How many more batteries will now end up in landfill?

    Everything about this mouse is great (for me at least) except the charging port. A very poor design decision that should never have been approved.

    That charging method tho'

    The mouse is great. The idea of a rechargeable magic mouse was exciting! Until you realize that it charges by plugging in a cable to the bottom of the mouse making it completely unusable while charging. Crazy that a company with such a great reputation in product development and user experience would be ok with this.

    This is not what I would expect from Apple

    The battery lasts just a couple of days when used intensively. The charging connector is a standard Lightning port...but positioned beneath the mouse, so it cannot be used while charging. The top surface's scrolling feature is really smart and helpful, but its design is suited for small to medium hands, those, like me, with medium-large hands, will find it uncomfortable. It is also quite heavy and that is bad for precision. I wouldn't suggest its use for CAD/CAM or gaming. At least the Magic Mouse 1 had replaceable batteries which lasted for months, this mouse forces you to put it aside while charging, every other day. Honestly I'm really disappointed, as an Apple enthusiast, this mouse is quite a disappointment. The previous version war better. It's time to design something really new and more functional.

    Can't use when plugged in to charge... so if you don't notice charge is low, it can die and YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE YOUR iMAC UNTIL IT CHARGES. That's right, the Lightning cable plugs into the bottom, and the mouse is inoperative while plugged in. Doesn't matter if you're meeting with a client, if you have a deadline, whatever. You're done. Next, from my own experience and apparently many others (from what I read online), they are prone to suddenly quit tracking, even when charged. You can still click when this happens, just not move the cursor anymore. Hopefully it will do this to you when you have the cursor over one large button that will do everything you want for the rest of the day when you click on it.... otherwise, once again, you are DONE working. Finally, the least of its issues, the right-click is too sensitive and will fire even when you are SURE you've left-clicked. I could deal with that issue, if only it worked the REST of the time. Come on, Apple. This is an $80 piece of hardware. I would expect more from the $20 USB mouse with which I will replace it. And you know what? THAT mouse will deliver.

    Verdict: Don't buy the Magic Mouse 2. If it comes with an iMac or something, be sure you purchase a cheap, generic mouse so you will be sure to have one on hand when the Magic Mouse 2 invariably quits on you.

    Expensive, but great.

    Epic battery life. Doesn't play well with very specific graphic design software, but that's not a problem that will affect a lot of people. Looks great on my desk.

    The magic mouse 2 is very convenient and easy to use. I have always used the pad and this was the first time I used the magic mouse 2 and have no complains. It is very easy to use and the swipe options make it the best feature.

    Totally worth buying.

    Great battery lift

    Really pleased! I waited a long time for the new model having read such negative accounts of the previous model. This does exactly what I need it to do. It's heavier to use than my old pc mouse, but the fact that I can pair it with either my pc for work and then back to the mac at home is just what i wanted. The battery has lasted incredibly well and the accuracy is good with a good surface beneath. I am most using in design and text base,it could be a little faster but other than that a good solid product.

    "Magic" mouse is not reliable

    The "magic" mouse constantly lost connection and then finally went dead. It ran out of battery quickly. Its quality is poor!

    BEWARE! Magic Mouse 2 doesn't work with Mavericks OS (!)

    I'm returning it back and will make sure I stay away from other Apple products from now on.

    Was leery to purchase but pleased

    I have been switching to all Apple products since last year so when I bought my MacBook Air, I really wanted to stick with the matching Apple mouse. After reading the reviews here, I was scared to purchase this mouse. After debating with it a few weeks, I finally purchased it. Very pleased with the fact that the shipping was super fast, I received it within one day! I don't have any complaints about the mouse itself. I use it without a mouse pad since my desk top is glass and it works great!

    Great mouse for productivity

    This is not a gaming mouse! Anyone that tries to use this mouse with a first person shooter or with video games that requires secondary click will be disappointed no matter what.

    For those who use Final Cut and professional apps; this mouse is perfect! Very responsive, has a rechargeable battery, and it just glides on any surface. The gestures that this mouse is capable of also helps with your productivity as well. I love this mouse and if anything happens to it I might just break down and cry (it's that good). It is also a little on the light side, and that is okay especially when you need to move it around the interface of an application quickly.

    How can Apple have made such a basic design error?

    Great mouse. Works like a dream.

    …until you need to charge the mouse. You need to plug the mouse in via USB, but the port is on the underside of the mouse rendering it unusable. You basically have to wait (with your Mac running, but no mouse) until the mouse has charged.

    But why? It's not like it's something that couldn't have been solved. The keyboard works in the same way, but it charged by a port on the back. You can use it as a wired keyboard while charging. There's no reason I can see why the mouse can't work in the same way.

    Steve Jobs would have never approved this.

    Kinda Disappointed

    Disappointed in the awkward way you you have to charge it. Disappointed that I can't use my mobee magic charger with it. Just all around disappointed.

    unusable when charging

    i mean what in world the designer was thinking when he put the charging port under the mouse?

    Useless when Charging

    I finally convert to a Mac and if it wasn't for the mouse, I would probably say I would never go to a different computer. But this thing is completely unusable when it is charging and as a student and running a nonprofit, this does not work for me. Very disappointed.

    Just awful

    Buy something else. These take on average 20-30 minutes to connect to your laptop. I didn't have the battery issues other users have reported, mostly because I gave up trying to connect the mouse and just used my trackpad. In the end I threw it out and bought a Logitech for $20 at Staples. Very disappointing.
