Needed new mouse urgently as the other drowned,
This review is from: Logitech M185 Wireless Mouse - Red (Accessory)
Just drowned my mouse by knocking off the arm of my chair into a hot mug of coffee.
Shook it. Opened its door and removed the battery. Shook it again and dabbed with a tissue. No sign of life. Left it overnight on some tissues.
Used a very old wonky Logitek purple wireless mouse to finish some urgent work and went to post box to post off the documents.
Arrived back with just half an hour to choose a new mouse and order a mouse to get it delivered next morning.
One thing I bless Amazon Prime for.
I ordered two, one red and one black/grey seeing as they were inexpensive. They arrived with batteries insitu and once the tiny dongle was in my laptop I was set up again.
I checked the other mouse was working too.
The dongles are so small you can leave them in the laptop when you pack it up and put it in its bag.
My previous mice have nearly all been Logitek. The purple one and its brother - the black one that drowned had bigger dongles -you slid the dongle in the groove under the mouse and it automatically turned the mouse off and kept the dongle safe.
Recently the dongle of the purple one has been sliding itself out of the groove and thus automatically turning the mouse on which leads to finding a dead battery. So I knew a new mouse was on the cards soon anyway. I just did not think its poor brother would drown.
Incidentally when I opened the packet of the second new mouse I took time to look at the manual and discovered that inside the battery compartment is a space for the dongle to live when not plugged into a laptop or computer. This is really good news for my travelling accessory bag. I just put the laptop in its tight stretchy case and add its power adaptor to the matching accessory bag and leave my desk with the house mouse and other bits behind. Amazing how you forget things if you take them with you all the time. Having two of everything is great.
