    g7 ftw

    battery only lasts about a day, but there is always one in the charger waiting to be swapped out, so i never had to worry about dead batteries

    I would say 2-3 months using the Microsoft Intellimouse.
    Energizer didnt last as long as duracell.

    But I would say dont bother getting a wireless mouse unless it is a good one that has a rechargable battery.
    I am going to switch back to a wired mouse

    i have the microsoft intellimouse like so many here

    i just changed to my 3rd set of batteries bout a month ago, soo

    november 2005 - march 2007

    = 15 months/3
    = 5 months per set

    but i also leave my computer for about a month every 4 months or so, so 4 months

    and i use it alot when i am using it. also, my receiver is close to my mouse, like 12-18" (no need for farther), so that prolly helps
