    A bluetooth mouse with one fatal flaw

    • Written by Aaron F from Thornhill

    It's a mouse and it works. Moves on my desk just fine, appreciate the physical click, like the finger gestures, and the battery lasts a long time.

    However, it has one fatal flaw: the charging port is on the bottom of the mouse. Why? Why not put it on the side so I can still use it (like a classic mouse), instead of being forced to leave it upside down (and be unusable) while it charges? It's an obvious fix to a problem.

    Great Mouse

    • Written by Evan L from Wahoo

    I don't know why people keep complaining about the charging port being on the bottom. The battery lasts well over a month if not two of everyday all day use. This means that 1 day out of 60. You have to remember to plug it in at night or before leaving work and your set for another 60 days..
    Not only that, but in about 2 min of charging the mouse gains about 8 hours of battery life. yes, I said 2 min people!
    My only complaint would be that scrolling is sometimes too sensitive. Other than that its a great mouse!

    Great design... until you have to charge it

    • Written by Steven P from Norwalk

    Apple has always been good about design of products. Here they have dropped the ball. It is fantastic to be able to charge the mouse and not have to buy new batteries for countless reasons... but to not be able to use the mouse because the lightning port was designed to be on the bottom of the device is just a complete misstep. When you loose power you have to completely stop productivity to charge the device.

    Does not come with a USB-C adapter

    • Written by Deborah F from Chesterbrook

    I recently purchased a MacBook Air and bought the Magic Mouse to go with it. I really wanted to like this mouse, I even shelled out the extra for the Space Gray to match my computer; however, when I opened up my new mouse I discovered that I would need to purchase an adapter to get my brand new Apple products to work together. The MacBook Air has two USB-C ports (no USB ports). The Magic Mouse adapter that comes with the mouse is only compatible with a USB port. In order to pair the mouse to the computer they need to be connected via this adapter (this is a one-time thing, later they connect via Bluetooth) so in order to work, I would need to buy a USB to USB-C adapter! Come on Apple, if you're going to move the market, and your customers to the USB-C adapters sell products that are compatible or provide a free work around.

    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

    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?

    This mouse does NOT have a fatal flaw

    • Written by Don L from Tucson

    This mouse does NOT have any fatal flaws. Virtually every rechargeable device that I have will NOT operate while charging. That includes electric razors, grooming trimmers, nail buffers, drills, cameras, phones, etc, etc. But if a mouse charging port is not on the side so that it can be used while charging it is given a one star ratings and a hate speach. Guess what, peeps! Even if the charging port were on the side, you would still NOT be able to use it while charging.... Doh! The good news is... a quick two minute charge will give you enough juice for another eight hours of use, and a full charge will last more than a month. The real reason that the charging port is on the bottom is for a visual indication that the mouse cannot be used while charging (for people dumber than a bag of hair). Good work Apple. The magic mouse 2 is AWESOME!

    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.

    Awesome product!

    • Written by Alan Duke W from Las Cruces

    I read a lot of reviews before buying the mouse, which is my normal routine but I'm glad I ignored most of them. Magic Mouse 2 is perfect for your Macbook, I have the New MacBook Air.

    1. The gestures work perfectly.
    2. Battery - listen if you only charge once per month or even every other week, why does it matter where the port is. No successful person is on their laptops 24/7. The device is fully charged in 60-90 minutes and lasts 3-4 weeks.
    3. It just looks and feels good.

    Enjoy your mouse and disregard all the charging talk, its a moot point.

    Had to Return It

    • Written by JEFFREY N from Port Washington

    I recently purchased the MacBook Air with Retina display and I wanted to match my Space Grey laptop with a Space Gray Magic Mouse. It was bad enough that I had to pay a $20 premium to do so but you can't even sync your mouse to the MacBook without buying an adapter since the mouse connection is lightening to USB and the new MacBook is strictly Thunderbolt. So bottom line is that you would need to make an incremental $40 investment versus Apple's already premium priced wireless mouse. This company gets further away from Steve Jobs mantra of quality consumer friendly devices and focuses more and more on its bottom line. Most of us are willing to pay premium price for great products, just not get gouged doing so. Sadly, the apple store folks aren't even aware the issue and this MacBook is 3 months old. In the market for an alternative wireless mouse if anyone has a suggestion.

    Returning - Straw that Broke the Camel's Back

    • Written by Chris M from Houston

    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.

    NOT THE SAME COLOR AS MACBOOKS!!!

    • Written by Dennis C from West New York

    3 shades of “Space Gray?” Unfortunately, it’s true.

    We all know by now that the Space Gray color of the iPhone X (and perhaps the other latest generation model iPhones) is drastically different from the Space Gray of the MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops.

    As annoying and confusing as that may be, I am a person who likes things to match… so with all of the hype (not to mention the $20 upcharge for this “premium” product) surrounding the new “Space Gray” accessories, I was excited to finally be able to buy a wireless mouse that is the same color as my MacBook Pro.

    Therefore, I was shocked and very disappointed to get home, place them side by side and find that THEY ARE DIFFERENT COLORS!!!

    Apparently the iMac Pro introduced a THIRD shade of “Space Gray” that is darker than the MacBooks, yet lighter than the iPhone X.

    So, the new Space Gray wireless mouse is the same color as the iMac Pro… NOT the MacBook or MacBook Pro laptops (and not the iPhone X).

    I just don’t get it!

    Bad ergonomics

    • Written by Randall B from VIRGINIA BEACH

    I love my iMac, but hate this mouse. It is ergonomically horrible, and its hard to use the gestures without almost having a sticky mouse pad to keep it from moving. It is also sluggish and hard to use for precision work, like photo/movie editing and even spreadsheets. I am currently using a generic mouse, which does not work with the gestures. This is unfortunate because I can't get the best use of the MAC IOS. Apple does a great job with their computers and I wish they would do the same for their mouse and track pad products.

    What's The issue?

    • Written by Tyler Z from Baltimore

    I've used this mouse since its inception. It works flawlessly, no lagging issues, anyone who reports that must have an old mac or something wrong with something else other than the mouse. Connects quickly, but it does however disconnect unexpectedly every now and again. The charging port is on the underside. At first it did seem annoying, and realistically is a very poor choice of location, but it takes 10 minutes to charge. Go stretch, take a bathroom break, kiss your wife and kids, by the time you get back its charged. Y'all should be responsible adults and charge the thing at night like you do your phone and everything else anyway.

    The Magic Mouse Needs a Complete Redesign

    • Written by Adam S from Loveland

    Apple should have redesigned the Magic Mouse from the ground up so that the charge port is not on the bottom of it. You should be able to charge and use the mouse at the same time. Apple was lazy and just kept the same design and threw a lightning port on the bottom instead of redesigning the mouse to have a charge port in a sensible location.

    Still a 5-Star, in spite of -

    • Written by Robert H L from Key Biscayne

    $20 extra for Space Gray.

    USB-A to Lightning cable. Really? What computer do they offer in Space Gray that does not have USB-C? Now, list the Space Gray Laptops that are ONLY USB-C. For the "Space Gray" 20 extra bucks, they could at least give us the correct cable, especially since they just charged me $19 for the cable that should have come with it in the first place.

    Charging port on the bottom - not a problem. Much better than hauling around extra batteries.

    Literally the WORST mouse ever made

    • Written by Omar N from Barrington

    I really hate giving bad reviews. It is never my intention to ruin the reputation of a companies product, but in this case, I really have no choice. For your own good, please do not purchase this horrible mouse.

    1. The tracking is absolutely awful. It lags like crazy, so you have to plan your mouse movements in advance. In other words, if you want to move the mouse across the screen, you must drag the mouse across the desk and hope that the arrow eventually lands on your intended target. Most likely it won't on the first try though, so you'll have to repeat this step once or twice more for every intended click. Alternatively, you can just move it really slow.

    2. Tons of friction with the mouse feet. Every time I move this mouse, it feels like I am scrapping a brick along my desk.

    3. Atrocious shape, and very uncomfortable for long periods of use. The fact that there is no dedicated left/right click w/ scroll wheel is also very annoying and slows my workflow down a lot. When I click the right side of the mouse to simulate a right click, the whole mouse will sometimes tip over onto its right side. Not good!

    I find that I my productivity in the office is slowed down immensely when using this mouse. It is something that I absolutely dread using, or even looking at due to the mental anguish it gives me just seeing it on my desk. Instead, I use a Logitech gaming mouse and can actually get work done!

    Do NOT buy!

    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.

    • Written by JASON L P from Elko

    I was visiting an Apple store today to help a friend pick out her new MacBook Pro, and I decided to pick up a new mouse for my MacBook Pro. I must say, I am totally thrilled with this mouse. I have no idea why all the negative reviews on here. This mouse is a wonderful upgrade! Ignore the haters and check it out for yourself! Definitely recommend!
