All my old mouses gave up on me at about the same time last time. I bought a new one from Shopee when it was having its 10/10 campaign. I bought it for less than RM10 (if I recall correctly, I did get some discounts by using some Shopee coins).
I’ve been using it now for about 5 months. It’s still serving me pretty well. I charge it about every 10 days. I’m quite a heavy user. It’s on for at least 12 hours a day. When the cursor started to slow down or it is not that responsive anymore, it’s time to charge.
You can use it while charging but make sure you are using a data cable. The in-built battery capacity is 500mAh. If the mouse is sleeping while you are not using it, just wake it up by scrolling the scroll wheel. The mouse will also go off when you switch off your computer.
All my old mouses(Logitech) lasted for at least 7 years while the oldest one lasted over 10 years. Not sure how long this mouse will last me. If you are looking for a mouse that does its job and doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket, you can consider this mouse. Here’s the direct link to the mouse I bought on Shopee https://invol.co/cl6rnrz
