The BlueEye sensor is kinda useless though. Laser + optical doesn't work well like we've seen it on the new Mamba. MS has been cheaping out on their mice using these. You can find optical buddies of these kind of mice on eBay.

How much capacity does this gold capacitor have? I mean you charge it and it lasts for how long then? Also, aren't capacitors suppose to last almost forever regardless of charge cycles?

No, capacitors will wear out too. See: exploded caps in PSUs

I dont really care about the capacity, but rather how well it can keep its charge. If it can keep its charge for a day, with 3 mins of charging, I will be perfectly happy to consider as a potential candidate, provided of course that the rest of the mouse is good.

hasn't it occurred to anyone that you could wire a mouse mat and place an antenna in the mouse so it picks up it's electricity from there?

so, you'd have a mouse that recharges itself while on the mat and you can take it anywhere once charged, brilliant, eh?

On a full charge, the capacitor of this mouse runs for one week, but it gets fully charged in 3 minutes flat. So you can go to your office cubicle on a Monday, put this mouse to charge, by the time you're settled down, it's fully charged for the week ahead.

Capacitors have practically unlimited charge cycles compared to rechargeable batteries. The very purpose of capacitors in electronics is to charge and discharge.

In principle, I agree, but someone mentioned "...office...". I think it gave out this mouse's major area of advantage. And I doubt it is intended for gaming purposes. Great idea, though. And I am somewhat specially pleased that Genius is one to release this kind of idea to serial manufacturing. Well done, my dear lasses and lads, if I may say so myself.

i had some of those maybe 5 years ago, the mice were powered via the mousepad. they didnt work off their specific pad, but it was a cordless, battery free mouse.


if they did mention a 'week' of charge, make that more like 8 hours. i've noticed cordless mice always overrate their battery power by a massive amount, due to 'accepted' norms of use - and office workers dont use the mouse much, they spend their time typing.

That and charging them before they're empty doesn't change how long a full charge will last, unlike rechargeable batteries.

I want to see more wireless mice like this.
