    For those of you who use the Magic Mouse, how many of you are using rechargeable batteries? If you are, then what kind are you using and how well are they working?

    Im using some energizer rechargeables, at when fully charged, they top out at 80% capacity (since each cell is 1.2V instead of the regular 1.5V). I used my mouse almost all day yesterday, and it went down to around 73% ... Given that, I expect them to last a month give or take.

    not too bad. But, with the original batteries, I got them down to 43% in about a month; so, I'd expect them to last almost 2 months.

    So, I think using regular batteries are worth it if you're not a fan of recharging things :p

    I've seen good reviews for the Sanyo Enerloops, but I don't think they will get any better than these Energizers to be honest.
