Best system/batteries

My new 27 inch iMac arrives Monday. I'm wondering what the best system is or thoughts regarding maintaining batteries for the wireless keyboard and trackpad. Is there a brand if rechargeables that work best? Any other ideas or experiences?

I think the Mobee is highly regarded for charging the MM

Check this out on AMZN: Mobee Technology Magic Bar - Inductive Charger for Apple Bluetooth Keyboard and Magic Trackpad (MO32... http://amzn.com/B004XQWGHW



I'm confused by this... Will it charge both y keyboard and trackpad?.. Seems too cheap to be true. Will I need to buy special batteries?

Location: That depends whether you ask for timezone, state of mind or GPS coordinates.
The Apple Battery Charger.
Thumb resize.

Or if you are completely new to the realm of low-selfdischarge rechargeable batteries, get the eneloop kit with 4xAA and charger, because the Apple charger does not charge AAA batteries.

Get Sanyo Eneloop AA, new style, 2500 maH, and get a C9000 charger. Google it.
