    I know apple sells their own, but do you all have any recommendations for some good rechargeable batteries I can buy for my magic mouse?

    Getting tired of having to buy new batteries every few weeks.

    On the fence
    A few ideas:

    4 Energizer rechargeables + 8hr (ish) charger ~$20 at best buy

    36 Regular energizer AA ~ $14 at home depot

    4 Energizer ultimate lithium (last a long friggin time) $9 just about anywhere.

    I'd probably get the rechargeables, as they have some decent life and aren't too expensive. 36 AAs will also last quite a while and are a little less expensive.

    alright i walked over to the drugstore and bought the energizer ultimate lithium batteries that said 8x faster, etc.

    lets see how long these last! for $9 they weren't too expensive.

    I was in the same boat you were. I just picked up the mobee magic charger last week. works great. Its about 50 bucks but worth it.

    get the magic mobee inductive charger , greatest invention since the wheel , no more worries about charging batteries , just place the mouse after use on the charger and done , always fully charged , no more thinking about taking out batteries to replace / recharge and £48 are not much if you calculate how much normal batteries cost which sometimes only last one month , and a normal charger cost money too and so do rechargeable batteries too and are far from cheap if you want some good ones
