Apple Magic Mouse 2: How long to charge the battery?

I recently bought a new iMac, and it came with a “Magic Mouse 2,” which is like the original Apple Magic Mouse, but this one has a built-in battery. Once you start working with a Magic Mouse that has a battery, you quickly begin to wonder, “How long do you need to charge the Magic Mouse 2?”

Apple Magic Mouse: How long to charge it?

The short answer is that Apple doesn’t seem to publish this information anywhere. They have this article, Recharge the built-in battery in your Apple accessory, but it only has very basic information.

The author of this Gizmodo article states that Apple told him that a two-minute charge could get the Magic Mouse 2 to last a full day. However, he said that in his “tests” he needed four two-minute charges to make it through his day. He does, however, imply that his mouse lasted nearly two months on a single charge.

In my own experience I’ve found that I can at least go several weeks on a single, complete charge.

More Magic Mouse charging information

Here are a few more resources:

  • AppleInsider states that a full charge should last up to one month.
  • If you dig through the reviews on this page, you’ll find that someone states that a full charge will last up to a month and a half.

This article probably has the best information I can find:

Magic Mouse 2 is said to charge up for 9 hours of use in about 2 minutes and about a month’s worth of use in just a couple hours.”

Assuming normal use of the English language in that sentence (as opposed to “the sales guy said...”), I’m going to assume this means that the Magic Mouse 2 can be completely charged in 2-3 hours.

Until I find more information, I’ll have to say that’s the best answer I can find.
