Drains batteries like you wouldn't believe
on 7 September 2015
Prior to buying the keyboard I had read about users having problems with the batteries being only lasting a couple of weeks and sometimes only a couple of days. Thinking that some people may be prone to a little exaggeration, like a fool I ignored the warning signs and purchased the keyboard. It's a great size for someone with limited desk space, it has a nice feel and as mentioned by others, it unfortunately it drains batteries like you wouldn't believe. I've read theories on forums about Bluetooth problems, software problems, the keyboard interacting with the Magic Mouse (which I also have) etc etc, but alas no solutions. What is weird is that the batteries seemingly drain at different rates. The batteries the keyboard were supplied lasted a few months to drain, but since then they last between 2 weeks and (no exaggeration) a couple of days, which is simply ridiculous. BTW, I'm comparing the same battery type and similar usage. Apple need to sort the problem out. Until a solution is found I recommend people look elsewhere.
