2.0 out of 5 stars
Poor battery life, 13 Aug 2009
The mouse is very responsive and the ergonomics are excellent, however it is badly let down by the battery life.
If you forget to switch it off or put it on the charge dock overnight the battery is dead by the morning - This is a regular occurrence for me, as my old Logitech G7 didn't need me to do this.
You can use the plug in USB wired charger, but I use Vista 64 and I don't seem to be able to just swap from wireless to wired when the battery runs out as the mouse doesn't get recognised - thus I have to reboot to get the wired option working (manually using Alt + F4).
The Mamba support site FAQ's say that the firmware patch 1.03 helps with this problem, but to be honest I haven't noticed any difference since updating this. When I emailed support about this, all they did was send me the FAQ above about this from their website?
It is a significantly better mouse than my old G7, and without the battery issues I would have definitely rated this 5 stars.
