First charge took me 3-1/2 minutes; they say, up to 5 minutes. It's a wireless mouse that uses a capacitor for a superfast charge.

When the charge weakens after 4 hours, you plug it in with a USB cable and you are back with a full charge within 3 minutes. $36 at Amazon

i took pics but i will upload them for the evaluation. i HATE leaving my PC and going to find batteries for my rechargeable wireless mouse. However, i don't know what it will be like to stop every 4 hours and plug my mouse into my PC for 3 minutes nor what i will do while i wait (usually it takes me longer than 3 minutes to find fully charged batteries as replacement).
(i always keep a second mouse around for this purpose)

we'll see - wait for the evaluation after i use it awhile. It seems a bit big but then i am used to a more compact mouse. Feels good.

It is supposed to even work on carpet. :P

No mirrors however. i am just getting used to it. The feel is OK. The idea is great. If the charge lasted 3 day, it would be awesome.

It's going to be my suggestion to make a smaller version. It's right handed also so lefties need not apply.

6-1/2 hours of use and you can use it while it is plugged in and charging .. so no downtime waiting
-recharge took 3-1/2 minutes again
:good:

Cute. But I've never liked wireless keyboards and mice. They always seem to have a weak signal or low battery right when you want to use them. not to mention wireless mice feel laggy to me in games.

That is the point of this one. When the battery capacitor gets weak, you immediately plug it into USB and keep on working. After 3 minutes of charging you unplug, and you are good to go for another 6 hours of use

Clever

almost ... no, it really is .... Genius
:grin:

It's the mouse not getting a decent signal (even if you sit the bloody thing on top of its receiver thingy) that irks me the most. Thats why I stick with a corded mouse.

i didn't turn the mouse off last night and it had a charge this morning. After an hour, i noticed that the red LED was blinking so i plugged in the USB cable - kept on working!! - after about 3 minutes on my notebook's USB, pulled the plug ... and i should be good to go for another 6 or so hours of continuous use.
:good:

C-o-n-v-e-n-i-e-n-t .. and the mouse is OK as an all-purpose wireless mouse.
-- Eco is no disadvantage that i can see so far although i haven't really gamed with it yet.

i can tell you now that this isn't a gaming mouse. It is all purpose. It should be fair for gaming.

i'd hate to lose a charge in the middle of a session. i always have fresh batteries for a gaming session.

Too bad.. that would've been awesome if it were a gaming mouse.

Now, Logitech, steal that Genius idea!

The issue is that you have to charge it 2-4 times a day (like me who has it on 24/7). If you don't mind it becoming a "wired mouse" for 3 minutes while it is being charged by USB, then it is the perfect mouse.

However, if you are gaming and it starts to flash red during a session (will you even notice it?), you have to pause the game, plug in the USB cable into the mouse, and then get back into the game.

Genius also makes several types of gaming mouse. Once they get the charge to last longer, i think it is a great idea for convenience and never needing (to hunt for) a battery again.
