    Back to the shop it went for a refund

    "Upgraded" my ancient 1st gen Magic Mouse to this one thinking the charging port at the bottom wasn't going to be a big issue. Big error of judgement, the mouse run out twice while I was using it and the last time it happened I switched to the original Magic Mouse and returned this stupid thing. Thankfully, Apple customer support is still top notch and getting a refund was not a problem.

    Whoever signed this off needs a refresher in user experience. The previous gen Magic Mouse is still the best Magic Mouse.

    Great mouse, much better then the original with roller ball

    Just received this mouse, and so far it works great. I like the feel of the device, not too heavy, and it's responsive. I use a mouse all day, and it's much easier on my finger for scrolling. As for the comments regarding charging, just plug in the unit at night, and shut it off to save power. It's a wireless mouse people, stop whining about not being able to use while it's plugged in.
    Overall, I would recommend this product!

    No battery mouse is great

    I do not understand why all the negative reviews. It WORKS! It has NO batteries to change all the time. I can charge it when I am asleep. It is lighter than the earlier version of the Magic Mouse. The two mice operate much the same as far as I can tell. What is not to love?

    Read this review if you are mad about charging port

    I'm not one to write a review but I was casually reading through and noticed a TON of hate going towards the Magic Mouse because of the stupid charging port. It's unbelievable how people can't read between the lines. Apple put the charging port on the bottom for a genius reason. Most people don't really care about a mouse being wireless or not, so if they were to plug it into the front, they would forget to unplug it after because it comes second-nature to them and just use it as a wired mouse! So some genius designer realized that if they were going to go to all the trouble of developing and selling a wireless mouse, people better actually use it wirelessly and thus slapped the charger on the bottom. I hope this straightens things out because I'm absolutely tired of seeing all these one-star reviews floating around. As for the actual usage, it's amazing, I love multi-touch on the mouse and got so used to it that I absent-mindedly tried it on an old Dell mouse and started getting mad because it wasn't working. Battery life is exceptional, it would be disastrous if it had the battery life as a phone. And it's an overall added feeling of just using an Apple product.
    I hope people read this review and it brings some light into the whole situation. Everyone have a nice day!

    I hate this mouse

    This mouse is infuriating. It's a massive pain to recharge. You essentially need to have a spare mouse handy for when this one dies. I come into work this morning and immediately get the first message that my mouse was low on battery. Thirty minutes later it's dead, and now I'm on a vintage dell mouse until the Magic Mouse 2 recharges. I desperately miss being able to swap out batteries. Enough that I'm now shopping for a new / different mouse. I'm ready to throw this horrible piece of junk in the trash. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS.

    Best mouse ever produced

    Previous model was great, but that batteries... Now its almost perfect!
    As 3d designer I using apple mouse since first Mighty Mouse, and its form was so biological, I never have ANY problems with wrists, considering I working on my Mac almost 13 hours per every day. Magic Mouse was even better, with more weight and multitouch usability. You know, I have pretty "average hands", and completely don't understand what all that haters here are whining about.

    I hope Apple will remove the main "button" soon too, to make it "full digital", without moving parts. Sure I never heard of expired clicking mechanism on any mouse, but just imagine you don't hear that clicking sound anymore. Complete silence and focus. )

    Pricy compared to the competition but this is a nice product

    Purchased this mouse to replace my previous version Magic Mouse. No issues with the older mouse. Just wanted the convenience of not having to deal with batteries. Read the negative reviews about the charging port being on the bottom. Yes, misguided form over function. Don't see what the big deal is though. Plug it in overnight occasionally and there won't be an issue. Besides, if you are used to using a wireless mouse, using it with a charging cord attached would be clumsy anyway. Remember the days before wireless? Setup was seamless. Plug in the usb cable. Pairing is immediate and automatic, and if you are replacing a previous version, all your settings carry over. The mouse has a good feel to it and to me, feels faster and more responsive. The build quality is typical Apple. I've been using the mouse for 2 months. No issues with loss of connection or erratic behavior. In that time period the battery level went from 100% to 30%. Plugged it into a USB charger and it took just 3 hrs for the battery level to go back up to 100%. Time will tell on durability but so far, very pleased with the product.

    Oh, come on people!

    This mouse is nearly identical to the original "Magic Mouse". The rechargeable part is a plus! I love it! I've had it for a week, use it a couple of hours each day, and it's still at 100%. All you need to do is look in the System Preferences under "Mouse" and it will tell you the charge level. Mine, after over 14 hours of use, is still at 100%.

    So what you have to lay it on it's side to charge it. Do it when you go to bed! What's the big deal?

    Get over it! 1 star! Really!

    UNUSABLE WHILE CHARGING!!!!!!!!!!

    Whose bright idea was it to put the charging port at the bottom of the mouse!?!?!?!?!? You literally cannot use it when the mouse is re-charing. All you had to do was put it on the front of the mouse (as other reviewers have suggested. I never remember to charge it until I get the notification that it is low. Thus begins a endless circle where I charge it for as long as I can stand to be working and not use the mouse, then unplug to use, then low battery notification, then charge for a few more minutes, on and on and on. When charged the mouse is great, no problems, but the port being on the bottom of the mouse is idiotic. Someone should have realized this.

    Generally, great; but the charging port should be changed

    The Magic Mouse 2 is generally great, and just as functional as the original, although lighter. But you have to wonder what the Apple designers were thinking when they put the charging port on the bottom of the mouse, making it unavailable when charging. It seems obvious that the charging port should have been located at the back of the mouse, i.e., the end where the Apple logo is located, and the firmware programmed to allow use while charging. Also, it should have come with a Mac computer software update to incorporate a battery monitor display (there is one available for a small fee in the App Store). Of course, it is a simple matter to let the mouse charge overnight when you are not using it once it runs down, but maximum functionality would be achieved by making these changes.

    Nice design but....

    Love the mouse EXCEPT it doesn't indicate when it's running low and needs to be recharged. The warning would be terrific so I could plug it in overnight. Woke up this morning and it was essentially dead. Also needs some sort of indicator when it's fully charged. Other than that, it's a vast improvement over the old one. Perhaps Apple wants us to buy two so one can be charging while the other is in use? NOT the best solution really. NOT at the price.

    Useless for new MacBook pro

    How am I to supposed to charge this on my MacBook Pro when there are no USB ports on my laptop? You only provide USB wire for charging?

    Why?

    I don't understand why there are so many negative reviews about the charging cable being on the bottom of the mouse. Yes, it's kinda weird, but there's really no excuse for letting the mouse die to the point that you need to use it while it charges. You can see the percentage of the charge in your preferences. When it gets low plug it in overnight??? It's not that difficult??

    I had the original magic mouse- having to buy batteries constantly for it was waaaaay more annoying! I've had my mouse for 3 weeks, charged it fully right out of the box, have used it every day and it's only at 83%. I turn it off when I'm not using it. At this rate I'll only have to charge it every few months. I'd say that's a VAST improvement to the batteries.

    Best mouse I've ever used

    Apple mice have typically been pretty bad. I've used them off and on since the 1998, and they all suffered from pointlessly quirky design and lack of features. I would always replace them with a cheap windows mouse. This mouse is actually a step forward in every area, the multi-touch surface actually make this better than a standard mouse. Hands down the best.

    Love it

    I am considered the go to person in town I live when it comes to technology. In the past 7 years I have converted heaps of windows users to mac os and will confidently continue to do so.

    Today I installed and configured a new 21" mac for a guy down the road or should I say I plugged it in and it configured itself. All I had to do was create dock items of his favourite sites and enter the account details

    I was delighted to see the rechargeable mouse and keyboard what a winner compared to the Logitech clumsy potato with batteries he had on his old PC.

    Well done Apple

    Thats why we will support You guys.

    ps we don't need to pirate software as it is all there for us.

    Wonderful Product

    I have used the Magic Mouse I for years and I love it, and I am very much looking forward to a rechargeable Magic Mouse II !!! Regarding bad comments by others: there apparently is no mechanism to identify fraudulent reviews and I would not be surprised if Apple's competition contracts this job out. The competition would of course deny it, and it would be difficult to prove. We can only speculate at this point. But regardless of the other reviews, this is a great product.

    Poor ergonomics. Really hurts

    My mouse came with my first Mac. The mouse looks decent and perfectly matched the design of Mac.
    However, it hurts. As a long time computer user, I haven't really developed any serious healthy issue with mouse/keyboard use. After one week of using the magic mouse 2, about 1-2 hours every day, I developed a serious repetitive strain injury on my left shoulder/arm/hand. It's because the super flat design of the mouse is so unnatural to human hands. Also, the fancy touch design is not accurate. Some gestures, like two finger slide, just don't work randomly.
    Now I am using an ugly old Logitech mouse with my left hand (My right one still suffers). It is not good-looking, but more comfortable and reliable, and more functional.

    deeply flawed

    obligatory rant about a catastrophic design flaw. 1st world problems. the reason people are losing their minds about the charging port being on the bottom of the mouse and therefore rendering it useless while it is plugged in, is because we have come to expect a certain level of quality from apple. this is why we buy apple products. it's a brand loyalty that has been earned. here, with Magic Mouse 2, form trumps function. they were so concerned with creating the sleek mouse profile, that they neglected to include features that reflect how people actually use the product. no one remembers to plug in their mouse until it dies while they are using it. and when the low battery warning pops up while you are in the middle of something, you can't stop to plug in a mouse that can't be used while charging. it's a huge oversight for a company that prides itself on well-designed, user friendly products. aside from that it's great. can't wait for number three.

    Yes, who are these people!

    Please, refer to Jeff F from Phoenix's review as I feel the EXACT same way. Great product -- just need it in space gray now.
