Magic Charger for Magic Mouse
With CES winding down, there are still a few products out there worth a second look. Mobee Technology
is releasing an induction charger for Appleís Magic Mouse
that includes a battery replacement unit. Once installed your mouse will charge simply by resting it on the Magic Charger
cradle. It doesnít even matter which direction you place the mouse on the base, as long as its resting on the unit. A full charge takes about six hours and should last you about six days of normal use.
The base station has an indicator light to let you know when the mouse is charging. As long as you leave your mouse on the base station when not in use, you should never have to worry about a low battery warning ever again.
The Magic Charger has been designed with the traveler in mind as well, as it only measures 0.35-inches thick. As long as you arenít going to be away from your desk too long, you should be able to leave the base station at home without worrying about running out of juice on the road.
Although the price of the Magic Charger is not listed on the companies website, Engadget is reporting that the unit will cost $50 when itís released in October. Pre-orders start September 15, so itíll be a few more months until can throw out your old batteries. The Magic Charge will also be available in the Apple Store when it comes out later this year. Iím a little surprised that Apple didnít come out with this first.
