LENOVO WIRELESS MOUSE

I HAVE A LENOVO WIRELESS MOUSE.   MUCH EASIER FOR ME TO USE THIS THEN USE THE PAD ON THE LAPTOP.  THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE BATTERIES ARE DRAINED OF THEIR CHARGE MUCH FASTER THEN OF PREVIOUSE WIRELESS MICE THAT I HAVE USED.  I USE NEW BATTERIES AND IT STILL HAPPENS.  I ESTIMATE THAT I HAVE TO PUT IN A NEW BATTERY ONCE EVERY 2 MONTHS ON AVERAGE.

HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS OR A SIMILAR ISSUE?  DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTION ABOUT WHAT I CAN DO ABOUT THIS?

  • You can use a wired mouse. Rechargeable batteries might be the better option if you don't want to buy another mouse. They will run out faster, but you just switch them out and plug them in again. You don't throw them away every time and have to buy more.

    Sounds like it might be an optical mouse? The light has to be on all of the time to detect movements. I have several remotes, including one with lights that come on when movement is detected. Guess which one runs out of power first? Maybe there are other options that are better with power usage. Old wired analog ball mouse. Remember those? Might be the way to go.

  • I have the Lenovo Go Wireless Multi-Device Mouse and it gets heavy use every day. It has a rechargeable battery and I just charged it for the second time in 7 months.

  • that is not typical

  • Yes. It charges wirelessly through Qi or by USB-C. It also came with a short cable for charging.

    There's two colors available, Storm Grey and Thunder Black. Everything else is identical though, so not sure why the price of the two fluctuates so much.

    Bonus that I got it for free using my monthly activity MLR.

  • First of all, there's no need to scream. 

    Did you change the surface. Perhaps a new mouse pad?

  • I prefer wired mouse... It is best..

    Does your wireless mouse have a power switch?

    When I'm not using it, I keep my Logitech wireless mouse turned off.  If your mouse does not have a power switch, then you could always remove the AA(A) cells.  For the longevity of the cells, that's even better than a switch.

    There's one other thing you might try.  It may sound crazy, but I think it could be the solution to multiple problems.  Sometimes, devices have conflicts in COM and IRQ.  You may have a conflict between your mouse and your keyboard.

    Have you tried turning off CapsLock? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • I would suggest rechargeable batteries. Two months is not that bad.
