    The charging cable port is on the bottom of the mouse making it unusable when the batteries die (which they do frequently).

    WTF?

    Mixed Bag

    The gestures are nice, it visually looks pleasing but it really is not the most ergonomically friendly device. My main complaint... how am i supposed to charge my mouse when the usb-c cant even accept the included cable? a ridiculous oversight

    Impossible for real work

    It's sad for a apple fan see how in Magic Mouse the designers forgot to think in function over the form, they have tried to do an sleek design that it's beautiful but worthless for work; that is because it have a so flat and thin design that it has no room for your thumb and little finger, for work in auto cad you need to constantly have your little finger up and hurts after a few minutes, so my beautiful iMac has now a a 6 dollar Logitech gray mouse.

    This is amazing

    I dont know why others are complaining about the port, because it charges in two minutes to give nine hours of battery life. The mouse works very well, connecting it to a mac is easy and when fully charged, it lasts for a month

    Brilliant in Space grey

    Since 2013 when I got the black trash can Mac Pro, i have wanted an apple branded black or space grey magic mouse for a long time, the last one i had was the original one from the very first generation of the magic mouse and it still works!! but it requires AA batteries as well, and even with rechargeable ones its a pain, But I am very happy to have finally switched back to apple mouses and especially the magic mouse 2 love it, it is much improved in tracking since the original version and you don't have to worry about the bottom cover for the battery falling off. The real reason though t went back was because they have now black and space grey keyboards and mouse's

    the only issue I have with it is what everyone has an issue with and thats the silly placement of the lighting port for charging fortunately it doesn't require much charging which is good.

    Very smooth to use with my space grey MacBook pro 15 inch with touchbar and it just works, also very good quality.

    Great color to match MBP13 & MPB15 Rechargeable & lighter

    Lets address the bulk of complaints about the lightning charge port on the bottom. It Is Not An Issue! As another reviewer has said in only a few minutes of charging it will last for hours. I can confirm this. five minutes charging and it works all day and into the night. This thing is lighter and has better bottom rails than the original; it slides nicely. I have it paired with a 2017 MPB13" and a 2017 MPB15" both with the Touch-bar + Thunderbolt 3 & four USB-C port models. The MBP13" and Mouse are backpacked to work every day and I have not had much problems swapping which MBP the mouse connects to. On occasion I've had to plug it in for it to swap to my 15" from recent use with the 13", but that's done in seconds. It does seem to scroll and be more sensitive than the original and would be nice to have a control for sensitivity, but it's very minor gripe. My only real complaint is that the Space Gray is $20 more.

    Mouse is great but ditch the lightening port and put it on the front!

    Seriously, if you would stop leeching money out of your customers I would have given this 5 stars. Instead somehow Apple ditched their "forward thinking" and decided to use old tech in their newest iteration of the wireless mouse device. Lets think about this, they even released a new "space gray" color that matches their newest line of macbooks - awesome! Here's the catch, it ships with a lightening charging cable that still uses the old bulky USB. Where the heck are we supposed to plug this in? Our new macbook? Oh wait, no, we're supposed to buy 3-4 dongles so we can charge our keyboard, mouse, and trackpad at the same time. I'm leaving a two star review because this design isn't well thought out. Lets ditch lightening ports altogether! Please commit to your vision and convert everything to USB-C! I can't stress enough how stupid this is. I also suggest you start shipping these devices with your overpriced USB-C to Lightening cables instead of old bulky USBs. As I'm sure others mentioned, actively charging it renders it useless. Oh and the space gray costs more money AND has better reviews, seriously?! SMH

    Black, buttery goodness

    This mouse is certainly not worth the price. But if you do fork over $$$, and you can afford it, this is an amazing little machine. I love the sleek design, and the click mechanism is always satisfying. The laser is very accurate, and boots up very fast. I'm also not shot in the eyeball when I start it, because the laser is "invisible." I'm sure it might cause damage if you stare for too long, but a passing glance as you turn on the device won't do harm. The scroll is nice, and the preferences allow you to make the experience your own. If you want to complain about the port on the bottom, just charge it for 10 minutes and then overnight. You'll get used to it. It's art. It doesn't care about your hole preference. Get over it.

    Great Mouse

    I too do not understand why some reviewers have trashed the mouse because it cannot be used during charging. The charge takes no time whatsoever. I have tried other wireless mice and none of them integrate as well as this one with my MacBook Pro.

    Almost Perfect At a Price

    The mouse works like my past mouse, which was great. Only two gripes

    1) For a company obsessed with human UX. Why in the world would you put the charge port on the bottom instead of the front so I can use it like a traditional mouse while it charges? Yes, I understand that's where the hardware fits without significant custom design but come on this is an Apple branded product not some no name third party product.

    2) Why am I paying a $20 premium for Space Grey? Does it really cost $20 more to manufacture Space Gray? Really?

    Great Mouse - Charging Explained

    Hi everyone, I just purchased the Magic Mouse 2 and I love it. I wanted to explain the charging issue. There is none. The battery charge gives you 7.5 minutes of use for every one second that you charge. So, if you charge it for 5 seconds, you’ll get a little over 30 minutes of use.

    Gorgeous mouse!

    I recently purchased the space gray magic mouse 2. My old mouse was the AA battery powered white magic mouse. I LOVE the new mouse. It's really beautiful. The click weight is better. The weight of the mouse is better (lighter). The battery lasts for a long time. No more constant battery charging.

    I would have preferred if Apple kept the power light that was next to the on-switch, but that's nit-picking. Also -- WHY is it $20 more than the white one? I actually didn't realize this until after I had bought it. Having said all that, I'd highly recommend this mouse, and specifically the space gray. Oh, and one more thing... from a practical standpoint it matters very little that the lightning port is beneath the mouse. The battery lasts for very long time, and the charging is very fast.

    LOVE the Black, but still Dislike the Charging Location

    Just love the black! But still wish the charging port was like at the top like the Apple Keyboard...so a person could keeping using it while it's charging.

    So like other reviews I've left...while I absolutely LOVE Apple...I will have to admit to being a lil' disappointed that the Space Gray costs more. I mean we have 3 Space Gray MBP 15" and they didn't "cost" more...does seem a lil' money grubby...maybe? Yet, still love it!

    And Apple needs to add the Space Gray options when a person orders a brand new Mac / iMac, Mac Mini, as well. Even if they do cost more still than the silver.

    Yes, the charging port IS a fatal flaw.

    Unlike Don L from Tucson's nail buffer, if you work on a Mac (like I do) you need to use it every day, for 8+ hours. What am I supposed to do when the battery dies at 3pm? The answer is "have a spare USB mouse lying around", which is a ridiculous solution for a ridiculous design flaw in a ridiculous $99 ($129 CAD) mouse.

    In the previous iteration with batteries, this took roughly a minute to swap out with some fresh rechargeable AAs. Apple created a problem where one didn't exist, for reasons that are completely unfathomable to me.

    The only reason I think people actually use these things is that they get one included with their Mac. Who would willingly drop this much money on a horribly designed piece of junk?

    Returning - Straw that Broke the Camel's Back

    Listen, it was already difficult to swallow the price hike JUST for a color other than silver. Also have read several reviews on the poor charge port location (though it charges fast enough that might not be an issue). Despite that, I went through with this because I wanted a mouse that matched my new MacBook Pro. While it is entirely my fault I didn't pay enough attention, it boggles my mind that this does not come with a USB C cable, or at LEAST an adapter. Add that on top of everything else, I no longer want this product.

    why apple why?

    Style over function taken to a laughable extreme. Putting the charging port on the bottom is absolute madness! Yes, I can see that putting it on the side might make it less beautiful and possibly uncomfortable if if was placed in the middle or at the back, but if it was placed at the very front of either side it wouldn't ever be touched whether you are left or right handed. having to stop your workflow when the battery dies is incredibly frustrating. yes it's rare but if you use your computer every day for hours then it happens regularly enough to drive you mad. I've been reduced to buying a competitors mouse (which is inferior in every other way) for the sake of my sanity. The magic mouse is a beautiful device in every other way, but considering that Apple brought the mouse to the world (sorry Xerox), this simply can't be left as hindered as it is. Please fix this one guys.

    Form at the expense of function

    Touch sensitivity for left/right clicks seems to work well enough, which is nice. However, the mouse is shallow and uncomfortable to use for long periods—your hand has to arch over it rather than resting on it. Much worse, though, the optical sensor is located at the tip of the mouse rather than near its base or centre. What that means is only hand movements that extend to your fingertips are picked up when tracking motion. That leaves tiny movements of your hand around your wrist invisible to the mouse. The result is a bizarrely inaccurate and jittery mouse when it comes to tracking. So this isn't just discomfort--it's actually a usability issue. I returned it and bought a $15 Dell mouse. Saved almost $100, much more comfortable, and much more accurate. The Mighty Mouse is a great example of form at the expense of function. In its present design (which has been around for a long time) it shouldn't have been allowed out of the gate. (Also: Who cares about wireless? Seriously. If you're genuinely frustrated by the presence of a mouse cord you have issues.)

    Awful mouse stay away from it if you can.

    1. Lightning port on the bottom of the mouse, why?
    2. The extremely shallow mouse is incredibly uncomfortable in your hand, and leaves an unnatural fealing.
    3. Zero buttons makes the mouse very inconvenient, (similiar to how the iPhone X is inconvenient due to a lack of a home button.)
    4. $100

    Overall I would just purchase a $10 mouse off of amazon that has buttons, a much more comfortable grip, and doesn't require you to flip your mouse over so that you can use it later.
