    Hand discomfort during heavy use.

    • Written by Dennis T from Applecross

    I have used the Magic Mouse 2 for 4 years I have played lots of games over time but now I write books much of the day, 8 so far in the last 2 years. When I edit I work the mouse hard. I also do a lot of photo editing. I have used mice from most manufacturers. I love Apple design. That is why I used the mouse for so long. It works well but it is ergonomically not good for me. If I use it in games I get hand cramp. In editing I get thumb cramp. I ignored it and got tendinitis in my thumb. So I got out some of my games mice and realized they were so much more comfortable in long term use. They have Bluetooth and work fine which was my biggest fear and charge while using,yay. This Mouse is fine in short term use, looks lovely, but in longer use I have my doubts. I would like to make recommendation that Apple make more ergonomically designed mice for heavy users and the elderly. I would like to see more attention to function over form. The shape of my relaxed hand does not fit the Apple mouse.

    Hope You Like Using Cables With Your New Blutetooth Mouse

    • Written by Ben O from Seattle

    Want to use your new $100 bluetooth mouse with more than one MacBook? You're going to have to find an adapter (their laptops support USB-C, but they send you a USB 3.1 cable) and plug the mouse into your laptop every single time you switch between devices because it's not going to pair unless you do so.

    Far too expensive to perform like a peripheral from 1999.

    I prefer the first Magic Mouse over this one...

    • Written by Kyle D from Huntersville

    I bought this mouse to go with my new Space Grey MacBook Pro. I love the excellent battery life and the gestures that the mouse facilitates. However, I find that is quite awkward to use from an ergonomics standpoint. It seems that the position I find myself holding the mouse in gets quite uncomfortable during prolonged periods of use. Additionally, this thing show fingerprints horribly! Admittedly, I am quite OCD when it comes to things like this, but it really destroys an otherwise beautifully designed product. I don't mind having to plug it in on the bottom, but I would rather just swap the batteries out like I did with my old Magic Mouse.

    Poor Design

    • Written by Laura W from Waynesboro

    While the mouse works fine, the charge port being on the bottom of the mouse is a very poor design. Thus, when charging, rendering the mouse useless until charge is complete.

    Just one Issue!

    • Written by Domingo M from South Elgin

    I can live with plugins the cable from the bottom. Like the feel, but the gloss finish is TERRIBLE! Finger prints all over the top surface. It should have the same finish as the keys on the Space Gray keyboard.

    Expensive and Poor design

    • Written by Eric A from Santa Teresa

    So expensive when compared to other products out there. Then when it needs charging you can't use it, because the charge port is on the bottom. Poor design from a company that is suppose to design great products. Very disappointed.

    Good mouse. Annoying to charge.

    • Written by fake N from Apache Junction

    As others have noted, you can't use the mouse while it's charging. Everything else about it is great.

    • Written by Mike E from Wellington

    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

    • Written by Brandon W from Delta

    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

    • Written by Jorge R from Talca

    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

    • Written by Trevor S from Stanwood

    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

    • Written by Paul K from Pelican Waters

    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

    • Written by Jason C from Elmwood Park

    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!

    • Written by Dustin F from Lakewood

    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

    • Written by David A from Midway City

    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

    • Written by Patrick B from Fairfax

    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

    • Written by Stephen L from Harleysville

    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

    • Written by Armando M A from Anderson

    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!

    • Written by Pete F from Atlanta

    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.
