Keep Your Apple Peripherals Constantly Charged

I am a big fan of Bluetooth peripherals. Apple's Bluetooth Keybaord, Magic Trackpad and Magic Mouse are some of my favorite consumer electronics items. They are well-built, very functional, elegantly designed, and they all have very small footprint which helps minimize the clutter on my desk. They all also have a great battery life, but changing the batteries can be a nuisance, albeit admittedly not a major one. If you'd like to stop worrying about having to change the batteries for your Apple peripherals, then Mobee's Magic Bar might be just the right product for you.

The Magic Bar is made out of single piece of anodized aluminum, matching almost exactly the look and feel of Apple products. It connects to your computer or a stand-alone USB charger through a dedicated micro-USB cable. The cradle part is exactly as long as the Bluetooth Keyboard, with the entire bar being slightly longer due to the inductive charging part at the end of the bar. The charging end of the bar has a single small led light, which indicates the charging status. The inductive battery screws in securely into either the keyboard or the trackpad, with only a small knob protruding at the end.

The first time I charged the battery I was unable to simultaneously use the keyboard. This was a bit annoying, but after it has been charged for a while you'll be able to use your peripheral as it is being charged further. It seems to take a really long time for the battery to be fully charged, and I am still to charge it completely.

The trackpad or the keyboard tends to sit in the cradle more or less snuggly, although it can also become a bit loose. This can be annoying when you are typing, as the shifting keyboard can be noisy.

The only big issue that I have with this product is its price. Mobee products tend to be overpriced, IMHO, but overall they are very well designed and made.
