Default Wireless Rechargeable mouse

Whats out there for something decent? Seems there are plenty of straight up wireless, but not so much rechargeable too.

Why not just get rechargeable batteries?

Thats the other option, though not preferred. This is for my work station here. I like being able to just throw the mouse into a cradle, and not worry about it after I go home.

A single AA battery lasts at least 2-3 months for me using it 8 hours a day. I would think it would be less convenient to deal with charging it.

Yep, just get a Logitech wireless mouse that accepts standard AA or AAA batteries and Sanyo eneloops batteries and a good La Crosse or PowerEx charger. The rechargeable wireless mice on the market have dismal battery life. The Logitech M310 or M525 are great mice and the batteries last for weeks or months. The Mxx0 models are full sized desktop mice, and the Mxx5 models are smaller laptop sized.

Thise are great mice. I have used both. But battery life is not very good compared to the models I have listed. If you need a gaming mouse with more than the standard 2buttons and wheel, then you will have to look for different models that I listed. For gaming, I use wired g9x.

the MX is the way to go. I've had it at my last two jobs and it's been great.

Does Logitech still make the G7? I've still got mine... great mouse. Hit a button and the little lipo battery slides right out of both the mouse itself and the charging dock / receiver.

Yeah... the lipo batteries in this thing deteriorated pretty quick. But I bought a couple of no-name ones off Amazon and they last about 2 weeks... one in the mouse, one in the charging dock, takes less than 10 seconds to swap 'em.

... yeah, doesn't look like they make it any more. Too bad. I love this mouse.

I have the Performance MX right now. With what I do, it eats batteries, and is a total PITA to have to run the mini USB to it all the time.

This is what I use.. poor man's set. Batteries last a long time though.



I had a Logitech setup previously, but the software was interfering with my IR transmitter software for Windows Media Center.

I've been rocking an MX Revolution at the office for the last couple of years. Usually I just toss it on the charger over the weekend, otherwise I can just ignore it.

The last time I was this happy with a mouse, it was the giant MS Pro that still had a ball in it and no scroll wheel.

I agree, sounds like more of a pain to remember to throw your mouse on a cradle to charge it all the time.

You end up wasting much more time over months than switching out a battery.

I've been using a Performance MX mouse for a few years but then it started double clicking on its own so I tossed it and picked up a G700.

Found this last week and bought one to use at work. It comes with everything a brand new mouse would come with except the software.

Refurbished Performance MX Mouse - ebay

I've had my wireless logitech trackball mouse for over a year w/o the need for a new battery and don't bother to turn it off when not in use.

Wouldn't worry yourself over a chargeable mouse.

Dude, I've been using my Logitech MK710 keyboard/mouse combo for over a year on the original batteries for 8-12 hours a business day. My keyboard indicates batteries are 3 bars out of 3.

That. I've had something similar at work for the last ~20 months or so, and I am not sure I've EVER changed the batteries in the keyboard. The mouse gets new batteries every 6 months or so, but it's way easier to just order a box of batteries and chuck them in the desk drawer than to try to remember to charge the mouse. My set is a K350 keyboard and an M510 mouse. The mouse is looking pretty haggard since I grap on it all day every day, but it still works like a champ.

I don't understand the point of wireless accessories that require batteries for an inherently stationary system that contains a power supply.

That's right, I'm calling you dumb.
