Battery Life Expentency Of Logitech Cordless Mous

This is getting rediculous. My cordless mouse batteries are lasting about about a week to 10 days. Are they crap batteries or is my mouse borked?

Ok thanks. Could be because I buy them local. And they may be sitting on the shelf for a month before I buy them.

I think it will be worth while investing in some rechargable ones.

They do wear out as well, i.e. only good for x number of charges. But, it works out cheaper in the long run.

it all depends on what mouse, and how much you use it, and how much time its in snooze mode. my inbuilt battery on my mx1000 lasts about 10 days, a few less under heavy use. It does have an inbuilt li-ion though which lets me know a few hours in advance that its about to konk out

Mine has a li-ion too, but it doesn't last quite as long as it used to. Still lasts a week though.

Mine has NiMH, and er, lasts at least two days... Good thing it's normally sitting on the charger when it's not in use.
