On my desktop PC I have absolutely no wireless peripherals connected mainly because I consider swapping/charging batteries for a desktop computer rather ridiculous.
This peripheral will make an appearance in this week’s newsletter but it definitely deserves its own article because yeah, it’s that good.
The kicker with this mouse is that it claims to hold a charge for 18 full months on a single AA battery. Bear in mind this is a plain alkaline battery we’re talking about here and not some special li-ion rechargeable or other proprietary cell. One battery, up to a year-and-a-half of charge. That’s pretty amazing.
In practical use however I’d estimate you’d get 12 months instead of 18, but hey, that’s still pretty darned good. I’d even be happy with 6.
The MSRP price? 60 bucks.
NewEgg’s (current) price? 50 bucks.
Worth it? Absolutely.
I might even switch to trackball because of this mouse. Maybe.
