Exactly what a portable mouse should be like
Reviewed in India on 19 May 2019
This mouse checks ALL the boxes for a good portable mouse.
1. Compact - takes little room in a travel bag.
2. Comfortable - good for prolonged usage.
3. Replaceable battery - no hassle of keeping track of charge levels and recharges.
4. Plug-and-play - connects instantly and works out of the box unlike Bluetooth mice which require pairing, take a while to reconnect and are prone to random disconnections.
5. Efficient - automatically goes to sleep and wakes up without any perceivable delay.
Things to note for potential buyers:
1. The mouse has a dedicated slot to put in the USB dongle to avoid misplacement.
2. Runs on a single 1.5V AA battery. (Power rating reads 3V=10mA)
3. Has standard left, middle and right mouse buttons along with a DPI button that toggles between three cursor speeds. To get the best cursor tracking, adjust the cursor speed from within the OS along with the DPI button to best make use of this feature.
4. Mouse clicks are not silent. Will go unnoticed in an office space, but will be noticeable in a silent library.
I was looking for a portable mouse for when I do not need to use the touch-pad on my laptop. After processing a lot of wireless mice reviews, I finalized this one.
Thank you, Portronics, for making this mouse available. It is good to see an Indian company bring a product that gives a much better performance:price ratio than bigger global brands.
Definitely recommend this product.
EDIT: 1 Year Update:
The mouse is still working like new. I has consumed one "Duracell Ultra" so far. Zero issues faced.
