    Charging Feature is a bit of a let down

    Whilst I love the design of the mouse, it's functionality and features.
    The charging is a bit frustrating.

    It would be better to have a charging port perhaps on the front of the mouse so you can still use it when charging.
    I've had to buy another Logitech mouse to use when I need to charge my Magic Mouse.

    Other than that the mouse it great.
    I will say the charge does last a long time so that's a plus.

    Love it!

    I don't understand why there are so many bad reviews about this mouse. I am using this mouse since about 8 years, the old one used a lot of batteries, but the Magic Mouse 2 is amazing! I charge it about every 4-6 weeks and use it daily for about 8 hours. Once you get used to it you just can do about everything with this mouse! I am a designer and create all sorts of vector graphics - most of the time just using the mouse.

    Caution. Apple, I suggest you bring out a new mouse.

    The Magic Mouse - Apple's supposed game-changing mouse. Only, its not. First off, the ergonomics of the mouse are awful, the human hand is not one perfect curve, using this thing with no support under your palm is super tiring after a short period of time, and you cant 'lay' your palm on this thing, because then none of the gestures work, and you cant click. The second awful thing, are the gestures. Apple, your trackpads are amazing, I adore the new magic trackpad 2, and macOS is absolutely phenomenal with all the trackpad gestures, but your mouse doesn't seem to support any of them. Sure we have things like double tap with two fingers for Mission Control or Exposé, but thats not nearly as intuitive as swiping up. On the trackpads we've got the scrunching gestures that can launch Launchpad, or show our desktops. On the mouse? none of those 'shortcuts' are present. If theres no space for gestures on this thing, give us buttons on the side! or give us sliding gestures we could do on the body of the mouse on either side (Kind of like the 'squeeze' buttons on the old, and much better, Mighty Mouse) The last thing i want to talk about is the 20$ price increase when you want the mouse in a different colour. I think its absolutely ridiculous that you have to pay an extra 20$ to get another colour just because you guys think "more people will want the black one, so lets jack up the price by 20$" Apple doesn't do this. Dell and HP do this. You don't charge extra for a space grey finish on a MacBook or on an iPhone so why the price increase on the mouse and keyboard? Please fix your mouse, I cant stand having to connect an adapter to my MacBook pro just so i can use your previous gen. USB Mighty Mouse.

    Unusable while charging?!?

    What kind of idiotic design is it to put the charging port on the bottom of the mouse?? It's unusable while charging. That's so terrible.

    Horrible Product

    This product doesn't work as it should. It can hardly move from one side of the screen to the other without stalling in some way (while completely charged. The store's only recommendation was charging it). I ended up buying a SECOND Magic Mouse thinking the first was a faulty product. Both have the same frustrating issues. Huge waste of time and money, would NOT recommend.

    Sitting here waiting for my mouse to charge...

    I came the Apple site to look for a wired Magic Mouse option to buy while I sit here and wait for my current Magic Mouse to charge, because it’s unusable while charging. Unbelievable that there’s no wired option AND the current version is unusable while charging. One or the other would be super.

    Useless

    With trying to create a better product Apple have created a poor product. Please bring back usb mouse! It keeps on flickering and jumping around, light keeps on flashing and battery is on and off even though batteries are charged. Please bring back usb mouse!

    THIS Mouse has Died

    This Magic Mouse 2 lasted less than a year. Very Unhandy to charge it, since the port is on the bottom of the mouse. It is not possible to use when charging. (The original mouse which had batteries was a MUCH better design. You could just change batteries and keep going.)
    When the MM2 didn't work anymore, I took it back to Best Buy where i bought it, I was told that I needed to go online to talk to Apple. You need a MOUSE to go online.....I did NOT buy another MM2. I bought an off brand mouse... it worked well with my iMac in less than 10 seconds, and cost a LOT less.
    Apple has always been my choice of computers, phones, etc. They are VERY well designed. The MM2 is a failure! It doesn't live up to the Apple standard. Disappointing!

    Terrible

    Charging position makes it unusable which is terrible.
    Gestures are too sensitive so it is terrible to use.
    Ergonomic is too low which make my wrist feels terrible.
    Got this for free from work and now I have to buy my own mouse for work, that is terrible.

    Terrible is not my first choice of word.

    It is a mouse, not that hard to make a good one.

    love it

    I bought the smoke gray magic mouse.I love it!! I've had this mouse for about 3 weeks and have yet to have to charge it. I'm not understanding the negative reviews. This is a must have to go with your MacBook Pro or whichever laptop you have.

    Haters Are Wrong

    Seriously? You haters are completely wrong. Basically everything in this is very advanced and would impress even Tony Stark. (If all the superhero mess is real) Charging is excellent. 2 minutes could give you 2 months of usage. I don't know what is up with you guys. Basically, all I'm saying is that haters are probably like, oh. This is not how I like it. It needs to be super advanced. Well guess what? Life isn't perfect.

    Can't use it while it is charging

    You cannot use the mouse while it is charging, and there is not much warning before it gets very low. An unbelievable design decision.

    Too small, can't charge and use, battery dies quickly, hyper sensitive

    First - let me start with the positive. I love having a touch surface on the mouse. Limited multi-gesture support is pretty cool, and adds a lot of nice integrated capabilities. Only because of that, do I give this mouse a 2 star rating when I really want to give it a 1 star.

    But. There are so many things wrong with this thing - that almost universally relates to Form OVER Function ... Apple - some day ... you really need to realize that Form is great - but FUNCTION is king.

    Problems:

    1. The battery life is fairly short ... about 2 to 3 weeks depending on how long a day I use it (which is a lot).

    2. You can't charge this mouse and use it at the same time. Some brainiac thought "just stick the charge port on the BOTTOM of the mouse ... who cares about functional problems like "battery running out or dead, and still need to use the mouse" ...

    3. This is partially "my fault" - as I have very large hands. This mouse is so freaking tiny - that it's only the width of my 3 middle fingers - consequently - it's incredibly uncomfortable to hold and use - again - a Form over Function - at least provide 2 or 3 sizes of mice for different sized hands.

    4. The touch surface is WAY too sensitive - it's constantly taking input just by my fingers "hovering" over the surface - I have to stay at least 1/2 inch away of the surface to be sure that I don't accidentally trigger clicks on things I didn't mean to - but it still happens regularly ... I've triggered deletes of things, selections of things I didn't mean to, etc... rather annoying.

    5. Charging the mouse off of the laptop itself does not provide any feedback on the charge percentage unless you TURN ON the mouse - so you have to "guess" when it's charged enough to start using again. If you turn on the mouse, it takes a LOT longer to actually charge the thing ... so you have to accept a slow charge rate to be able to see the charging status.

    6. There is no small led light or similar on the mouse itself to indicate it's fully charged. You have to turn the mouse on, open up your desktop/login and view the Bluetooth battery status to see if it's charged.

    The idea is amazing - but like most Apple products it is so rigid in it's conceived/perceived use case that it's useless or impractical for most of the rest of the world.

    I would desperately love the see the following things to make this a 5 star product:

    * charge port accessible while still using it
    * larger mouse options for bigger hands
    * sensitivity setting of the touch surface area to increase/reduce sensitivity per the users needs
    * small fully charged led light status - which could also simply blink 1, 2, and 3x to indicate 25%, 50%, 75%, and steady for 100% charge rage
    * more ergonomic design the flat curve surface is purely designed for aesthetic looks and not shaped how a human hand holds a mouse - see some of the common Logitech and Microsoft "natural" style mice - they're actually designed to be comfortable to use and hold

    loses connection constantly

    and it's not because it's out of charge. I have to wiggle it, wait 15 seconds, then it's usable again for another few minutes. This is awful.

    Love It. No other mouse compares.

    Sad to see the negative reviews of this mouse. The functionality of the Magic Mouse is unparalleled. I loved the 1st Gen. and love the 2nd Gen even more. I purchased my iMac over a month ago and the mouse battery still has a charge of 42% (at the time of this review). I did not charge the mouse out of the box, just simply turned it on and still haven't charged it.

    I'm sorry but turning my mouse over once every couple months to charge, when I go to bed, is simply not enough for me to even knock 1 star off. Hands down a top notch product.

    Don't be Put Off by the Three Star Rating.

    I use Bluetooth mice and keyboards a lot. But I always keep wired counter parts around just in case the blue tooth devices can't be detected. And the batteries are forever running low. I have this mouse and the Apple Bluetooth keyboard (without the numeric keypad and rechargeable batteries) for an iMac. At first the mouse felt a little strange. and somewhat uncontrollable I didn't like the placement of the charging port. The keyboard felt a little small. And for a couple of years I didn't use them. Finally I charged them up and I am pleasantly surprised. Once you charge them they hold the charge a long time. I have my machines automatically shut down every night and startup in the morning. I actually remember to turn off both Bluetooth devices. There is never a problem at startup detecting devices. They are pricey and they are not the MOST ergonomic of devices but they do work well. Well enough that I have just purchased a second set. In both cases they replace an Apple replaceable battery wireless keyboard and a Logitech mouse. The second set is for a Mac-mini connected to the TV.

    Just a great mouse

    I do not understand the negative reviews for this great mouse. I use it with my MacBook Pro everyday and just love it. Battery life is sooo long I cannot agree with those complaining about the bottom charging port. Every few weeks or months just plug it in at night and you will never worry about running out of charge.

    Since getting used to the trackpad action on the mouse I get annoyed using the scroll wheel mouse on my wife's computer.
