Can you charge the Magic Mouse 2 wirelessly?

The battery on this mouse can last for a month, but what happens when that battery dies?

Quick Answer: No, the Apple Magic Mouse can not be charged wirelessly. It’s charged via a provided USB-C to Lightning Cable, similar to an iPhone or iPad.

Apple’s Magic Mouse 2 is the company’s premium wireless computer mouse. It features a sleek design that goes well with Apple’s other products.

The Magic Mouse 2 has a lot of good going for it. It features Apple’s unique Multi-Touch surface, allowing you to easily scroll through documents and swipe between web pages.

The good news is that it has an incredibly long-lasting battery which Apple claims can last a month or on just one single charge.

For the rare occasions where you actually do have to charge your Magic Mouse, it comes with a USB-C to Lightning Cable that you can use to juice back up.

But what about magic mouse wireless charging? Can you place it down on a wireless charging mat, or is there any other way to charge your Magic Mouse without using cables?

Can you charge the Magic Mouse wirelessly?

Short answer: No

Unfortunately, Apple’s Magic Mouse does not support wireless charging and does not come with a special wireless Apple mouse charger.

You’ll have to settle for that ancient, wired technology to charge your mouse when its battery runs out. Fortunately, you won’t have to worry about that too often.

There are some mice, like the Logitech G502 Lightspeed, that feature wireless charging. But most of these mice don’t feature the exquisite battery life that you can find in the Magic Mouse, so they tend to need to be charged more often.

How to charge the Apple Magic Mouse

Charging your Apple mouse is as straightforward as it gets. If you know how to charge an iPhone, this will come easy. Here’s how to charge your Apple Magic mouse.

Find the Lightning port on the mouse’s bottom.

Connect the provided USB-C to Lightning Cable.

Plug the cable into a power source or compatible device.

Charge until the battery indicator shows full.

Disconnect the cable once charged.

With the Magic Mouse, you can just plug it up over one night every month, and you generally won’t have to worry about keeping the battery charged.

    You wrote that whole article and it should have contained one word. “No” What a useless, over bloated piece of garbage.

      Thanks for the feedback, but the article literally says “no.” If it’s easier, we’ll include that further up top in the article. Thanks.
