Engineer Makes Better Apple Mouse That Can Actually Be Used While Charging

The Apple Magic Mouse is an interesting device. It’s reliable, beautiful, and plays well with the rest of Apple’s lineup, but the way it charges is stupid — no ifs or buts. The charging port is located at the bottom of the device, so you need to charge it from the bottom up every time and cannot be used. This is poor design and unnecessary. Systems engineer Ivan Kuleshov took to Twitter (now X) to show off an

“ergonomic” redesign of the Apple Magic Mouse (a better redesign than previous attempts, to be sure). The mouse charges via USB-C (the current Magic Mouse charges via a Lightning cable), and the plug is on the front of the device, so you can run a cable between the mouse and your computer while charging – you know, just do what every mouse manufacturer has been doing as done. In order for the mouse to work while charging, Kuleshov said the charge goes directly into theApple mouse battery.Even if the mouse is not currently charging, the mouse charge percentage visible on the computer will increase, effectively tricking the operating system into not realizing the mouse is plugged in.

The original Lightning port is still there, but it won’t actually charge the device.Kuleshov said he watched a video on YouTube by Work From Hype about a similar design, and “it was after that video that I realized I could do better.” Perhaps the best part is how easy it looks with a mouse Disassembly – Great if the owner wants to make any modifications.Anyway, Kuleshov, hats off to you. The Magic Mouse is easily the weakest piece of technology in Apple’s walled garden, so seeing users with some creativity improve it brings me a lot of joy.
