While wireless mice are a useful and great for getting rid of wire clutter on your desk, they do have some pitfalls. The fact that the mice run on batteries means they’re usually heavier and you’ll need to deal with changing its batteries every now and then. Well the folks over at Genius have come up with a solution to the problem: the Genius DX-ECO, touted as the world’s first battery-free wireless mouse. While it doesn’t have a battery, it does have a built-in gold capacitor that has a long life of 100,000 recharges – and it is touted to take only 3 minutes to fully recharge.
The DX-ECO uses BlueEye Optical tracking, which means it will work on any surface, and has an adjustable dpi of 800/1600. The mouse comes with a travel friendly 2.4GHz USB Pico receiver, and is fully plug and play. Four way scrolling, next/previous page hot keys complement the standard buttons and an ergonomic design makes sure you can use it for long hours comfortably. The Genius DX-ECO is available now with a price tag of $39.99.
