    I bought the Apple Rechargeable Battery kit and like the whole idea but have noticed that the batteries never seem to reach 'full' charge...

    I use them primarily in my Magic Mice and the Bluetooth link at the top of the screen never shows them having a 100% charge. It's usually in the 70 to 80% range.

    Are other people seeing this?

    Thanks...

    Yes, this seems to be common. But I have noticed that other rechargeable batteries also exhibit this less-than-100% maximum charge. The Apple rechargeable batteries, however, seem to last a LOT longer than other rechargeables I've used.

    The rechargeable batteries run at lower voltage so you will never seem them at 90-100%.
