Mobee Magic Charger

mobee_batteryPack_magicCharger_120730_BATThe Mobee Magic Charger for Apple Magic Mouse is something I’ve been wanting for quite sometime without actually realising it. I accidentally saw it while browsing at a electronics store in Helsinki while waiting for my actual order to be ready and once I saw it I knew I had to have it. I really love the Magic Mouse but I’m so done with rechargeable batteries. The Magic Charger comes with it’s own custom battery pack for Magic Mouse and inductive charger.

They promise to get up to 8 days of use out of the battery without charging and with my 20 days test I can say that is pretty accurate. I’ve been leaving my mouse on 24/7 and only charge it once it’s completely depleted but from now on as my test is concluded I’ll probably put it on the charging station over night so I never have to worry about running out of juice in the middle of work. The design is very sleek and the chargerĀ fits nicely on my table or to be more exact under my rain design mstand. The charger gets it’s power from USB and I have it connected on my USB hub so I only need to connect one USB cable to my Macbook Pro.

Only time will tell how well the battery will hold it’s charge but for now I’d say it’s a buy for anyone with a Magic Mouse.

The new 1080p HD Apple TV

The new 1080p HD Apple TV package from Amazon was waiting for me yesterday when I came from work to home.

The package looks the same as previous version and contains the same things: the sleek black apple tv, aluminium IR remote and power cord. When you put the old and new side by side you can’t really tell which one is the new one though my old one was a bit dusty. The only other difference I noticed is the model number.

I really love Apple TV. I rent movies through it, stream music to my Harman Kardon home theater system and stream Finnish TV using TVKaista iPad app which also support AirPlay. I was going to buy a second Apple TV to my bedroom to connect to my 32″ LG LED TV along with DirecTV HD DVR but since I heard there was a new version of Apple TV coming so I waited awhile for it. Now the 1080p gets it’s home in my living room next to my second DirecTV HD DVR and 55″ Samsung 1080p LED TV.
