    I love it!

    • Written by Larry F from Renton

    I think I have tried all of the wireless mice Apple has produced over the years. We are still using the original battery-powered Magic Mouse. It's a significant improvement over its predecessors. The Magic Mouse 2 is an improvement over that. Detractors love to malign the placement of the charging port because you can't use the mouse while it's charging. Those people apparently haven't used the mouse long enough to know it's really not a factor. I use this mouse nearly every day for at least an hour or more, and in the three months I have had it, I have charged it once. It was nearly fully charged out of the box, and it was just a few weeks ago that I needed to charge it again. You get plenty of notice before it dies. If you're worried about running it down while you're working, plug it in and take a 10-minute break. It will charge enough during that time to give you several more hours. When you're finished, plug it in for a few hours and it will be ready to go again for a couple more months.

    How can you not like this mouse?!

    • Written by Alexander M from Findlay

    I absolutely love this mouse. It runs smooth without a mouse pad under in, and the touch features on this are really cool! I would recommend this to anyone and I'm really not sure why this is getting such bad reviews!

    Fantastic

    • Written by Rui V from Ramada

    I really don't get some of the reviews here. This mouse is fantastic, it works very well, very precise and I really love the design. The only downsize is the charging port location that doesn't let you charge and use at the same time, but this is really not that relevant as the battery life is really amazing!
    Great work!

    The Magic Mouse 2 is just dandy. Haters, go get that Logitech then. Geez.

    • Written by Rachel B from Chicago

    Seriously people, I have no idea what these people are going on about in here.
    Especially those that had or still have and use the MM1. As The MM2 is LITERALLY the SAME mouse, minus the weight (the MM2 is Lighter, no batteries) Or The Charging port. As far as design or ergonomics are concerned, there is no difference. The touch interface is still exactly the same as well.

    For crying out loud people, Get A GRIP! Seriously. I would like all the haters going on and on about the location of the charging port to take a good look at this mouse and tell us all where on IT, yes this actual mouse, you think Apple should have put the port~ and let us all know. After looking at the mouse myself, I see no where else for it to logically go.

    It actually charges enough for a whole work day in a couple minutes, Apple knew full well that you would not be able to charge and use the mouse at the same time so it was made to charge fast enough that it would be a non issue.
    If you forgot to charge it, and it got low enough that it turned off you can charge it back up to nearly 100% during your lunch break,
    10 minutes will get you well over half charged, or even if you have something crazy important you are working on and can only spare the time it takes for you to get to bathroom and back? That will certainly be enough time to charge the mouse for the rest of the work day, and likely enough to get you all the way til Friday. at which time you can plug it in, and come back to a freshly charged mouse on Monday that you can use for 2 more months without remembering to charge it again until it dies.

    As for those posting negative reviews based solely on the location of the charging port? sell your MM2 and get a MM1. It's the same mouse, but uses batteries.
    Your welcome.

    What a brilliant little thing

    • Written by Jurgen B from London

    Exemplar in design....exemplar in use. Another brilliant innovative invention by Apple, not much more to be said. Ok, charging port on the bottom is a bit odd but then who is using a device like this for 24 hrs flat out, and if you can't remember to charge it, try and figure out who's fault it is. Anyway, it doesn't need charging that often, even with heavy use gossiping on social media until the small hours. We have Apple-fied our life for the simple reasons this little magic device embodies... simplicity, usefulness and design.

    Lightning charge capability convenient

    • Written by Jonathan S from Guthrie

    I use this with my MacBook Pro instead of using the laptop's trackpad. Responsive and the gesture features are fantastic. Charges quickly without having to continuously swap out batteries.

    Excellent Refresh of an Apple Mouse

    • Written by Phillips L from Greenfield Park

    After using this product for a few months the Apple mouse has served its use remarkably well.
    It still retains it's charge cycle and has that month long usage after a two hour charge.
    I use the mouse regularly each hour several hours a day and there's been no issue with it running out.

    For those at work who dock their phone or have a lighting cable there, one a month usually upon the battery warning appears, simply connect it on the way home and it'll be ready for the next day and month. Alternative is during the lunch break if it appears earlier in the day, a quick lunch break charge will leave it ready for about half a month so there is real concern for the battery every running out.
    Rechargeable upgrade is definitely a perk over storing a cabinet of time degrading batteries.

    Usability is excellent is the precision and speed for pointer specific uses is excellent. It glides over all desks, with wood being the least smooth but by no means rough.
    The trackpad like surface above with multitouch may seem excessive a technology for the gestures but what it allows is for one to rest the hand comfortably on the mouse without a palm arch on higher mouses without triggering off undated gestures. Multi-touch means the mouse will recognise deliberate movements over general hand movements that occur naturally during the movement and use of the mouse. A right click mode is available whereby the touch top recognises the mouse button was clicked solely on the right side triggering a right click command, it's seamless and intuitive as are the gestures which allow excellent workflow and control.

    It's a clean good looking mouse, which functions superbly and as stated. Having excellent battery life and ergonomics (though it may take some adapting for "avocado in your palm" mice users such as myself, but this is entirely like getting used to a different car)
    It's compact, pairs instantly upon lightning connection to your MacOS device and comes with a 95% charge so it's ready to go for a month.

    For those who clean their mice it has little other than a wipe down and a mildly damp cloth along the mouse edges to pick up dust means the mouse is easy to clean.

    Excellent technologies and engineering come together without flaunting individual strengths against one another to provide a mouse that for all it's strengths retains user end usability and quality for efficiency of work and durability.

    Would happily recommend to all those needing a mouse especially Macbook family users in need of extra fine pointer precision and heavy mouse work, an excellent pairing to the Macbook's trackpad.

    Love!

    • Written by JODY L from Columbia Falls

    I am not sure what the complaints are about on this mouse...works great with my new MacBook and was quick/easy to pair. I love how intuitive it is with the gestures etc - I wish I could sync with my non-Apple laptop and use it for work also! I love the sleek design. The fact that the charger connection is on the bottom of the device doesn't really bother me since it seems to hold its charge really well (and charges in just two hours) - I don't really see this as being an issue - and so awesome you don't need batteries! I was a little hesitant to pay the $79 cost for this, but I am so glad I did! Another satisfied Apple purchase.

    Really great mouse

    • Written by Robert M from Dallas

    I've had some other mice that I've used (bluetooth) and each one has had some major connectivity issues. 70% of the time they'd connect within 5 minutes of waking the computer up, but the other 30, they would take about 30 minutes or so. This one is always instantly connected! I am so thrilled about this as I do video and photo editing quite often and really need the precision of a mouse. I love the gesture support, and quickly got used to using the gestures. For people with a Mac, yes it's a little pricy compared to other options, but this mouse really is worth the price. The battery also has incredible life, and charges very quickly. If it dies, then I just plug it in, get up and get a drink or go for a probably much needed walk, and then when I come back (maybe 5-10 minutes later usually) it has enough juice to last another couple of days if I needed it to. It charges very quickly. I can't imagine using any other mouse from now on with my Mac.

    Apple Magic Mouse 2 is Great!

    • Written by David C from Grants Pass

    I bought the Apple Magic Mouse 2 a few weeks ago for my iMac. Previously just used a track pad, but decided I needed a mouse for more delicate photo editing chores. It is everything a great piece of equipment should be and it works very well. I was concerned about the negative reviews on the poor design of the charging system. The folks who wrote these reviews need to get a reality check about their abilities to evaluate good design. Simply put, there is no issue with the charging system that any normal person could find fault with. Yes, you can't use the mouse while charging it, but who cares. Are there really people out there who are using their mouse 24 hours per day? I have had the mouse in the on position for the better than two weeks that I've used it, and it is still at 90% charge. This is a great product that I would highly recommend.

    An AMAZING Mouse!!

    • Written by Jason L from Lehi

    I absolutely love the Magic Mouse 2!! Being new to Apple products and getting used to all the gestures, the Magic Mouse 2 is an excellent addition. I'm able to swipe between windows, navigate emails and do all other tasks with such ease and efficiency!! I love this Magic Mouse. Like anything else Apple, the design is so perfect, so clean and so elegant!! I would highly recommend the Magic Mouse 2 to anyone!!

    Great Mouse!

    • Written by Tiffany M from Brampton

    I got this mouse for my birthday and it has been amazing!

    It worked straight from the box, I just opened it and connected the mouse for the first time and after that the mouse has worked perfectly from then. When reading the reviews I saw that biggest complaint was that the charging port was on the bottom of the mouse. I don't see why it is such a big deal when the mouse doesn't have to be charged that often, it doesn't take that long and you shouldn't be using it while it charges anyway.

    Overall, I believe this mouse is amazing and deserves the five stars. The complaints made seem very thin to me.

    Love it! Excellent mouse.

    • Written by Eric M from Archbald

    I absolutely love the elegance of this mouse. It is very easy to use and super comfortable. People reviewing are saying the edges are sharp and cut your fingers... are they intentionally trying to do that? Scrolling is like butter. As for the charge port being on the bottom, I don't believe it presents a huge issue being that the mouse needs to be charged for a short period of time every few weeks if not months.

    Great Mouse - Don't Understand the Negative Reviews

    • Written by Michael B from Chicago

    I've been using the Magic Mouse 2 for about 2 weeks and I'm very happy with the performance. I'm switched over from a logitech mouse with a scrolling roller, so I did need to get used to the feel. It took a day at most. Like other reviewers, I was perplexed by the choice to put the charging port on the bottom. After using the mouse without needing to charge it for two week, I must say these complaints are a bit overblown. The charge lasts a very long time and it doesn't take very long to get a sustainable charge. As someone whose had to run out to the store to get batteries for a mouse because they died, I have to say having a rechargeable battery is a big upgrade.

    I find the mouse comfortable and easy to use. It does take a little time to get used to how it functions and my guess is that it won't be right for everyone, but I'm quite satisfied and the biggest complaints are overblowm imho.

    Works Great!

    • Written by Andrew J from Plainfield

    I love this mouse so far, I find it fairly comfortable in the hand, dinging this mouse for not being ergonomically comfortable is kind of a farce, comfort is one of those things that is relative and personal preference. I myself find it to be comfortable, the high build quality and glass of the surface makes scrolling and the built in gestures of OS X a breeze and a joy to use, the battery lasts forever and charges quickly, I understand some people find the lighting port on the bottom to be a bit of a strange choice, but it's not used that often so, doesn't bother me any, and I can understand the choice, couldn't really put on the front because of the shape of the mouse, and it seems like it would be dumb to change the entire design just to put it there, also putting it on the side seems very odd as well. This mouse has worked very well for me, my suggestion, if you've got an Apple Retail store by you head into the store and try it out in person.

    Works Good, pretty light

    • Written by Edward Y from forest hills

    The mouse is good and I'm happy that I can charge it. The comments about the edge being too sharp is BS and the mouse does not double click when you want a single click. It's all lies. it is lighter than the older version because there are no batteries.

    Much better than Magic Mouse 1

    • Written by Richard P from Courtice

    My Magic Mouse 1 was good, and I only replaced it because it died.
    I read these reviews and found that the main complaint was that the charging port was underneath it and this made it impossible to use like a mouse with a tail while charging. IMHO the charging port is in the right place - underneath where it is less likely to get filled with dirt. Complaining that the mouse is not available to use while charging is not realistic when a full charge lasts for about a month. Even if one had forgotten to put it on charge, putting it on charge for the time it would take to get and install a new set of batteries on Magic Mouse 1, there should give enough charge to continue using for the rest of the day.
    I like using a mouse that is not tied to the USB port - for those who really want to use a mouse with a tail, Apple have a very good one that is cheaper than the Magic Mouse 2

    It is simple to check the level of charge: Select the Bluetooth icon on the toolbar. Hover the pointer over the 'mouse name' and the level of charge will appear in a window.

    Best mouse ever created

    • Written by Matthew S from Durban

    I cannot understand the negative reviews for this, or the previous generation, wireless mouse.

    This is (in my most humble opinion) the best mouse ever created. Combine it with BetterTouchTool and one can tap-to-click and use all sorts of gestures in ways which no other mouse could ever replicate. The scrolling function (for which no other app is necessary) is in itself reason to use this mouse above all others.

    And the ergonomics are excellent. I swore to myself that I would stock up on replacements at the slightest hint that the previous generation (that is, the one powered by AA batteries) would be discontinued. I was very pleased to see that Apple did not decide to do anything of the sort. While I have two mice of the previous generation (one each for use with my Macbook Pro and Mac Pro) I have switched to using the new model for both of my Macs as:

    - I find it doesn't disconnect from my Macbook Pro whilst the Macbook Pro is running on battery power (something I found happened more often with the latest OS X 10.11 betas);
    - the mouse does actually slide more smoothly along one's desk;
    - its very easy to change the pairing of the mouse via USB (this is clearly a feature which was introduced given the problems which the previous generation faced with pairing with multiple Macs).
