    Which rechargeable batteries brand is good to buy for the apple mouse/keyboard ?
    Is amazon basics OK ? or the Eneloop ?
    Also need a charger for them.

    It makes no difference. Batteries are batteries.

    I recall reading that the rechargeable sold by Ikea are functionally equivalent to Eneloops, but cost far less...

    I used Eneloops when I had the Apple mouse and KB and they worked fine. I see Amazon basics has similar Nimh rechargeables now with good reviews for a bit less money, so I'd probably go with those.

    Eneloops with a Panasonic charger here .
    I recommend the individual smart charger model .

    Been doing some research. Seems like the IKEA batteries are the same as the Eneloop Pro but at half the price so I'll be picking up a few packs on my next visit to them.

    Any recommendations on a charger that can charge fast, turn off automatically when fully charged or tickle charge etc but doesn't cost too much ?

    See above, a Panasonic smart charger .
    Cheapest price is usually with a set of Eneloop batteries .
