    Story: My wireless mouse had gotten to the point that batteries in it only lasted a week or so. I want to keep the wirelessness, but I wanted to not have to buy batteries anymore. I was wandering through the computer section of the store and I stumbled upon a wireless, rechargeable mouse. So far the only hitch has been that I stupidly did not charge the initial set of batteries enough, so they would only last a few hours on a charge. $5 for a new set of 900 mAh NiMH AAA batteries later, and I'm in love :love:







    coolest thing I've ever seen :p:

    Hmmm, cooler than that would be a design that charged the batteries from the energy transferred from your hand moving the mouse.

    Yep, wireless rechargable (with docking station) mice are the way forward! I've got one as part of a Logitech wireless desktop combo, and love it!

    my wireless mouse doesn't have a charger Though it does have an average battery life of 2 months, and can run on 1 battery if necessary. So it doesn;t exactly chew through batteries.

    Nah, me too. The way I see it is, if I am far enough away from the computer to need it wireless then I am too far to actually use it.

    I spent £50 on my LAZZZZZZZZZZER mouse. The Wireless version was £20 more but I decided against it as I get a lot of nephews using my comp so it would probably get lost.

    WRT to your point I often watch movies in my bed and it owuld be handy to have a wireless mouse as u can pause/reduce volue with it like a remote control.

    i have a wireless kb/mouse set because i multitask on my desk and being able to tuck the kb/mouse away and then put them back on my desk is wonderful. I have a media remote for watching movies and stuff, though.

    i have MCE as well but all my videos are played in Media Player Classic

    I spose I could buy a control - but then i would have to whack on MCE to watch my movies- just makes it a lot more of a pain.

    Can i get a control for Media player classic i wonder? (or make the MCE control work with it)

    It makes no difference between a conventional set of wired keyboard + mouse, you just pull the cable, although that would be only a slight hassle.

    I spent £50 on a Logitech MX Revolution. It totally rocks. Well, it did, until I lost the receiver.

    Hmm... maybe I should've kept that idea to myself.
