I have a Logitech cordless key board and cordless mouse. The key board batteries appear to go on for ever but the mouse batteries seem to only last for a few days. I am using re-chargable batteries for the cordless mouse and its possible that I may have cooked them or over charged them if that is possible of course. Does anyone know what batteries I should be using and if it is allright to use re-chargable ones.
What you all say makes sense. I use my computer every day from between three to eight hours. I actually have Duracell batteries in the Keyboard which seem to go on for ever. However, as the Rechargeable Batteries in the Mouse give up at the most inconvenient times I actually bought a corded mouse to use a s a stand by. I think that I will buy some Duracell Batteries for the Mouse as well because at least I can keep a spare set where as there is little point in charging a spare set of rechargeable as they will lose power faster than the Duracell's.
Had a Logitech cordless mouse that seemed to eat batteries. Went and bought a corded mouse and is cheaper than buying batteries/rechargers, etc and hasn't made any difference to the way I use the computer. I'm not sure that I see the point of a cordless mouse any more. Still use a cordless keyboard though.
I have had an untold number of different cordless mice, and as you say, the keyboard batteries last forever, but the rodent dies quickly. I have gone back to a traditional MS keyboard and mouse...No batteries :)
I have a Microsoft optical mouse and my Panasonic batteries first set lasted 6 months and the second set are past that now. Generally rechargeable batteries are 1.2 volts against 1.5 volts are non-rechargeable. Perhaps why you are getting shorter times.
