Mobee charger powers Magic Mouse by induction

Mobee today caused a minor stir at IFA by unveiling the Magic Charger. The peripheral uses the same induction behind devices like the PowerMat to recharge Apple's Magic Mouse without wires. By replacing the regular battery section and cover with a special rechargeable pack, the device can run for about six days without gaining any weight or bulk.

Recharging takes longer, at six hours, but the design makes it feasible to recharge the mouse without having to remove its battery. Mobee claims the battery is actually lighter than typical AAs and should improve the speed of the mouse for quick flicking motions.

The Magic Charger is due to ship in mid-October and will be available in the US for $50.

    Great Idea

    Sounds like an awesome idea. If the pad was big enough you could use it as a mouse mat and never need to "charge"

    price

    I'm using rechargables in mine...pretty effortless already...I can't justify the cost for a device such as this, even the convenience factor doesn't qualify.
