Here's a dumb question...
 
I have a question that I'm sure some of you could answer. I recently got a Logitech wireless mouse, a "Click" model. Granted, I keep my computer on most of the day (sometimes for days at a time) and after a week or so, the batteries of that mouse went dead. I never have had a wireless mouse. Is this normal battery life? They were Duracells. If so... I think my daughter just got a new mouse, lol. Any information?

I have my wireless keyboard and mouse for almost 2 months now, PC is "on" 24/7.
Haven't changed the batteries yet.

if you use the mouse a lot then one week is surerly a normal battery life-span. get some rechargable ones immediately btw!

depends alot on the mice!
I have a mx700 and it uses quite some power ( when I game ~6 days with a pair ), and my dad has just a regular logitech mice,and hes does quite some time with a pair ( 1 month, if not longer ), but he only uses for some office work!

also look for some high powered rechargable batteries, ( 2100-2300 mAh )

? MS wireless desktop elite = at work
Haven't changed batteries in two months ... possibilities:
a) I must be lucky
b) I don't use the mouse a lot
c) JMke is wrong

I have four sets.

One set I don't use much batteries last for three months. Others I use often; last for about 3 three weeks. I use 2500 mAH rechargable batteries.

Less use less power consumed is the reason. Thanks to A4tech, the fifth set is battery free cordless mouse.

Well... if this is "normal" battery life for this... it's going to be my daughter's mouse, and I will go back to looking for a good Logitech trackball... again.

the battery type can make a huuuuuuge difference.

take my digicam for example, with some 13-in-a-douzain baterry pack, I can take 3 pictures and then I already get the low power message... with a quality battery pack, I can take about 80 pictures and maybe more; all of this with flash.

I do approximately 3 months with my batteries in the mouse, the ones in my keyboard last between 6-9 months. I have a logitech lx500
