When you sit down and you’re ready to work, the last thing you probably want to discover is that your wireless mouse has kicked the bucket.  And by kicked the bucket we mean the rechargeable batteries inside are dead and need juicing up. But who has time for that when you need to get to your next TPS report, or for some of you RedTube.

Genius’ DX-ECO Mouse ditches the hefty, NOT landfill friendly battery in favor of a gold capicitor. What does that mean to you?  In just 3-minutes time this mouse can be charged to full and last for what the company says is a complete work day – we’re not sure what that means in terms of hours, but we’re assuming 8.    That said, it can be recharged up to 100,000 times, which means that this mouse will be well outdated before its capacitor fizzles out.

And just because it doesn’t sport a traditional rechargeable battery, or at the very least a slot for one, that doesn’t mean Genius has forgone any of the standard features you’ve come to expect from your wireless mouse.  It can work at up to a distance of 15 meters, includes a tiny micro receiver,  4-way scrolling, adjustable dpi (800/1600 dpi), next/previous page hot keys and a blue optical mouse that is said to work on dusted glass and marble.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
