    I have been monitoring the Battery levels on my Wireless devices. The levels all seemed to decrease normally in the past but since installing Lion the Magic Mouse and the Wireless Keyboard seem stuck at 100% while the Trackpad shows 60% which is probably about right. Anyone else notice this happening?

    Yes. Using Magic Mouse it is stuck at 100%. Still using wired keyboard, so can't help there.

    My battery level on my keyboard has been at 100% since I bought my iMac at the end on May. Didn't upgrade to Lion until a few weeks ago. I have replaced the batteries on my mouse once after Lion install and currently at 90%. So Lion is working fine for the mouse, but SL and Lion have kept keyboard level at 100%.

    Same thing here. It also happened in Snow Leopard.

    I just stopped checking the batter level and now just make sure I always have AA batteries in my desk for when the decide to die.

    Keyboard Battery Level Stuck at 100%

    I have a wireless keyboard and Magic Trackpad on both my mid 2011 iMac and 2010 MBP. In both cases the keyboard battery always reads 100% while the trackpads have appropriate readings. Both machines are also running Lion. I never noticed if this was the case on either machine before I upgraded from Leopard.

    I tried installing the Mighty Monitor 5 widget but it only reports the same numbers as the Apple System Preferences

    battery level constant display

    I have a magic mouse, combined with an induction battery charger.
    The thing I found is that the battery level that is indicated after you have started your Macbook (Lion 10.7.1) is always constant. It does not show increase (charging the battery) or decrease (using the mouse). Only after rebooting, the percent of charge can be seen.

    Do you also have this annoying situation?

    No, not stuck at 100%.
    It is stuck at the percentage of measurement at boot-time of the Macbook. E.g. yesterday it was stuck at 10% (while reloading on the induction plate) and today it is stuck at 96%.

    In other words: It is just "stuck" :eek:
    There seems to be no active process that keeps track of the magic mouse battery level.
