In the menu bar at the top of the screen, Bluetooth displays an icon  
which, when dropped down, shows the connected Bluetooth devices.  
Selecting the mouse or the keyboard displays a. that it is connected,  
b. can be disconnected, c. what the power level is, and d. that it's  
preferences can be opened from there.

Today the eneloops powered mouse show 50% power with the ones I  
charged a couple of days ago. It is behaving sprightly, indicated by  
when I awaken the iMac after a sleep when I turn the mouse off, it  
connects right away when the computer polls for it. Dying batteries  
take 10 secs to a minute to be "found". Keyboard is still at 62%.
