Hiya all. I have been a pc gamer for a long time now(mainly sim racing) and im thinking i could do with a new mouse. The thing is i want a wireless one with a charging station.
Any ideas???

I use the older version of the Razer Mamba wireless mouse which comes with a charging station (Has a nice blue glowing base when it charges) and I really like it.

There are however a couple of sticking points the first one being the price as it's rather expensive. Secondly it can be picky with the gaming surface its used on. My original mouse matt was no good as it had problems tracking but once I changed it I had no further problems with tracking at all and it never drops the wireless signal. It can also be used wired if required.

Another wireless mouse I would rate is the Logitech G700 but I don't think that one has a charging station, it just charges via the USB lead when plugged in I think.

If you want to charge as you go (no chargin station) then the Logitech Performance MX is a winner.

It works on any surface including glass and uses a usb cable to charge while you use it.

has a mini BT adaptor for it.

Lots of people like the G700 and yet a lot of reviews give poor rating just because the laser mouse which runs on just 1 battery only lasts 2 days, ***.

My MX700 that runs on 2xAA Batteries barely lasts 2 days and thats optical.

When I get a spare bit of cash I am planning on picking the G700 up and the no docking station thing is a + because it means when I use the computer just before I goto bed I can plug it in via USB to charge overnight whilst I am asleep.

It amazes me at how so many people complain that batteries in mice die when they are using it and complain about battery life yet seem to leave the mouse uncharged days on end. Charge overnight, use in the daytime. Its not exactly a hard concept to understand lol.

I have the performance mx and the charge lasts for absolutely ages. Very comfortable too.

Mine doesn't last as long :) It's being hammered by the GF constantly of late. So much so, having to revert to normal AA while I wait for the rechargeable that came with it to charge back up (we don't like wires on the desk you see).

try a bigger mah battery i think the one that comes with is 1900mah, something like this DURACELL AA 2450mAh SUPREME RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES BATTERY | eBay

or theses FUJIMAX*4 x 2800 MAH AA RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES-NI-MH | eBay

the battery might also be on it's way out as well.

I have the RAT9. its proper epic, like epic epic.


Battery is crap tho, a day, but it comes with 2 and charging takes about an hour so your never even close to being without.

Plus it looks like megatrons testicle.

A lot of people are prefering the Eneloop batteries atm and they come extremely highly recommended.

As soon as I can I am gonna get the following as the batteries I currently have are about 5 years old lol.

1x8 Sanyo Eneloop Mignon AA 2000 mAh: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

Technoline BL-700 Intelligent AA-AAA battery charger: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics
the same make of battery comes with the logitech mice but all rechargeables can fail, this is a good charger also for the money DIGIMAX SUPERFAST 1 HOUR HC1900 Charger for AA/AAA: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

i have had this a while :)
