    Magic Mouse & Apple Wireless Keyboard
    Hmm ok so I go out and buy a bunch of good rechargeable batteries NiMh branded Sony Cycle Charge at 1.2v and duracell rechargeable 1.2v the batteries I had in my product previously was enigizer at 1.5 and my main concern is when I insert like non rechargeable and power on it says battery is 100% now with these new ones it says 95% 85% 83% I just got the duracell fully charged it says 100 now but what can it be that it does that can it be a glitch or something I remember when I tried those knockoff fake batteries at 1.2 it wouldn't work but with new rechargeables they do at 1.2 hmm :/

    Specs:
    15" MBP, Core i7/2GHz, 8GB RAM, 480GB Crucial M500 SSD
    From what I've read through the years, they just don't work well with rechargables, period.

    Personally, I pick up 48 packs of Kirkland AAs from Costco for about 10 bucks and they last forever. Much less hassle than messing with rechargables.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Have any of the Kirkland's leaked on you? I bought that same box of AA's and a few did in battery powered clocks. Just curious.

    I've been buying them for years and can't say I've ever had one leak.
