A4Tech Wireless Battery-Free Optical Mouse - A4Tech Wireless Battery-Free Optical Mouse

Introduction

As I write this review I am using the new wireless, battery-free, optical mouse from A4-Tech (the very same company that produced the anti-RSI keyboard that was recently reviewed). Most of their kit seems to be pitched on the basis of some little gimmick and this mouse is no different – it needs no battery! Hey! Wow! Sounds real cool doesn't it? Well it's more gimmick than magic, so don't rush to buy one until you've read the following review....

I wonder if the "quality" will stand the test. :D

I haven't had the chance to play with a battery-free wireless mouse, but I am still using the A4 Keyboard and Mouse set that I reviewed a while ago and it is still working fine (considering the daily abuse it gets, I'm impressed!).

Good review, 1nteger :) Are you still using it?

Thanks bex, and yes I'm still using it. My main PC has crashed (mobo gone haywire) and I'm about to put all my kit into storage whle I get my house overhauled, so I'm using a notebook, and the mouse works really well with it.:thumb:

Hi mucks! I think there's so little technical gubbins to this mouse and pad that I wouldn't be surprised if it lasted for years....probably outlive USB technology at least!;)

... I just remember the early days. Cheap and err, well you know.

Be nice if they were building 'quality' nowadays ... :thumb:

If I read u right I agree, our sights have been lowered to some extent. I have to admit though, that I expected a price tag of more tha £15 for this mouse...so I was pleasantly surprised. It's interesting that it is being touted as 'the world's first battery-free mouse'....a misnoma but clever as well. The more I learn about IT technology, the more I realise how easy it is to sell an simple idea as magic to the unsuspecting public....do you agree?
