Why does my phone interfere with my mouse ONLY when it is charging? Watch

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 which I leave on charge next to my wireless mouse. Only in the last few days my mouse has been missing clicks, double clicking when I click once and lagging on the screen. I thought the battery may be low but the low battery light isn't on.

    I turned the wifi off on my phone and it didn't solve the problem, so I moved my phone away and the mouse was fine. Then I put my phone back and the mouse was fine. Then I plugged my phone back in to charge and the mouse went odd again.

    Is this a common thing?

    Wireless peripherals are more trouble than they're worth imo, apart from interference they use batteries and it is open season for click/keyloggers. Use a cheap wired mouse and use the difference to buy cable ties and other cable management solutions.
