There are two problems with the existing crop of wireless mice. They need a USB dongle and they suck out a lot of batteries. This new wireless mouse from HP uses WiFi to connect to the mouse which ditches the dongle. And it runs for 9 months straight which solves the battery problem. HP’s WiFi mouse works on Link 5 technology which connects to the computer through the WiFi and can be operated 30ft away from the computer.
Side note : Logitech M515 is a wireless mouse which lasts for 2 years but with the USB dongle, albeit a teeny tiny one.
HP’s WiFi mouse is dubbed as mobile mouse and will be available in June for Rs. 2250.
As a part of the Link 5 technology HP is releasing other products :
- HP Wireless Mini keyboard
- Wireless ultra thin keyboard
- Wireless Elite v2 keyboard
- Wireless optical comfort mouse
- Wireless laser comfort mouse
- Wireless Mobile mouse
Wireless mobile mouse looks the most promising.
