Featuring a new design, Magic Mouse 2 is completely rechargeable, so you’ll eliminate the use of traditional batteries. It’s lighter, has fewer moving parts thanks to its built-in battery and continuous bottom shell, and has an optimized foot design — all helping Magic Mouse 2 track easier and move with less resistance across your desk. And the Multi-Touch surface allows you to perform simple gestures such as swiping between web pages and scrolling through documents. Magic Mouse 2 is ready to go right out of the box and pairs automatically with your Mac.
This mouse is what we lovingly call "no box." When a customer buys a new iMac, some prefer a trackpad or wired mouse instead of the wireless mouse that comes standard. For those customers, we will pull the wireless mouse out of the iMac box and replace it with their preferred choice. We then have a FACTORY NEW wireless mouse that bargain hunters can scoop up at a great deal.
How does this "no box" mouse compare to the traditional boxed retail version? Well, obviously there is no cardboard box or the accompanying merchandising materials that are normally in the box. But you were just going to recycle those anyway, right? Although there is no retail box, the mouse itself is still wrapped up in the Apple factory plastic so that you know it is still brand new and unused.
The only thing this no box mouse does not include is the Apple Lightning Cable. If you buy a retail mouse, you also get a Lightning Cable in the box since that is how the internal battery is recharged. However most people nowadays probably have several Lightning Cables already lying around their house that they have accumulated from their iPhones and iPads. If you already have a Lightning Cable, then why pay for yet another? Save that money and use the cables you already own to get a great deal on this "no box" mouse.
