How to Change Batteries in an Apple Mouse


An Apple wireless mouse receives power from two AA lithium, AA alkaline or AA rechargeable batteries. When the battery level indicator in Apple System Preferences under Mouse shows low battery levels, you must change both non-rechargeable batteries, or spent rechargeable batteries if applicable, unless you're using rechargeable batteries that you can remove and recharge. To access the batteries to change them, you simply need to unlock and remove the battery compartment cover on the bottom of the device.

Things You'll Need

  • 2 AA lithium, alkaline or rechargeable batteries
  • Pick up your Apple Mouse, turn it to the bottom and slide the "On/Off" switch to turn it off.

  • Slide the battery compartment cover release latch to unlock it. Lift it from the device and set it aside.

  • Pull out the existing batteries and set them aside for disposal.

  • Insert the new AA batteries into the battery compartment with the positive and negative ends in the same position as the old batteries.

  • Return the cover to the compartment, push it into place and then turn on the mouse. Wait for the mouse to automatically pair with your computer and then use it as desired.

Tips & Warnings

  • Always use new batteries and never mix brands or used with new batteries.
