    What battery technology will provide me the longest life with a Magic Mouse, NiMH or LI?

    Lithium, most likely, however I don't know if you can find Li-ion AA rechargeables

    I recommend some sort of NiMH "hybrid" rechargeable, such as Rayovac Hybrid or Sanyo Eneloop (currently, Amazon has the Hybrids for a bit cheaper, but Eneloops are a bit more widely known). Of course, you'll also need a charger. If you don't already have one, Apple's own charger also comes with hybrid batteries (probably rebranded Eneloops, but we don't really know), and it's not terribly unreasonably priced, so it's not a bad way to go.

    I use the Apple batteries and charger (although, like someone has mentioned, they appear to be the same as the Sanyo ones). They have much better battery life than any other rechargeables I have previously used.

    Before these I had used Energizer Lithium batteries, but at ~£4 for 2, the cost soon adds up, and rechargeables were a wise move!
