    Ok, I know this seems silly, but I can't figure out how to open an A1015 to replace the batteries. The useless instructions on apple.com begin with "take off the battery cover" which is exactly what I cannot do. Can some please explain whatever the trick is? Slick design means the seams aren't very obvious....
    Thanks, Terry

    Have you fixed this problem yet? If not, can you post a picture of the mouse, both top and base (or sides if you think that's where the latch is).

    Have you checked on youtube? Maybe there's a video that shows you how to do it.

    Changing Batteries in Apple Mouse A1015

    It can be a little frustrating trying to figure it out the first time.

    1. Turn the mouse upside down.

    2. The battery cover is a plastic cover encompassed in the gray ring. You have simultaneously push the small catch so it clears the hole, and pry the plastic battery cover up with something thin(like a razor blade). Pry up the inner most plastic plate inside the gray ring.

    3. It's obvious what to after you get the plate off.

    Wipe your blood off the mouse and get your bleeding fingers stitched ? :D
