Since the foundation and the development of personal computers in modern history, PCs have always been associated with the mouse – a handheld pointing device – that is able to detect two-dimensional motion.
Few people realized that this mouse-like device with a long cord (or tail, if you will) which resembles its animal namesake could change our interaction with computing devices.
Though it was in the early 1960s when the first operational mouse controlling a computer system was demonstrated in public, the need for this input device only became popular in 1980s when the Microsoft Windows Operating System was introduced in the market and to this day dominates most of the world’s computers.
With the growth of Microsoft Windows in the past three decades, the overall function of the computer mouse has apparently become indispensable.
Today in the 21st century, mouse devices have essentially evolve and no longer need cords to function. It’s now wireless. Its long tail now belongs to yesterday.
Thanks to the introduction of infrared and Bluetooth technology, OEMs now have the ability to produce completely wireless mice.
Without further ado, if you are planning to replace your old mouse, here are my list of different designs of a wireless mouse for you to consider.
#1 TeckNet Classic 2.4G Optical Wireless Mouse
This is a classic design of a wireless mouse.
I am a fan of the natural curved design because it gives you an easy grip with the mouse.
I feel comfortable with its textured rubber grips at the sides.
It features plug and play use, with no installation needed. Just plug the USB Nano Receiver (which can be stored at the back of the mouse) to the USB port of your computer and there you go! Yes, it is not only for your daily work but good for gaming as well.
Its battery life is the most impressive on this list and can last up to a whopping thirty months.
I really like its auto power-off function that turns off the device when not in use which saves power consumption. It also features a battery level indicator which warns you if the battery is running low.
#2 Anker 2.4G Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Mouse
Though it may look like it, this is not a spaceship invader from an alien planet.
This is a futuristic design of a what a wireless mouse can look like in this millennium.
The shape and size promotes ergonomic design which encourages neutral handshake wrist and arm positions, resulting in less strain due to a long periods of gaming or working.
It features a power saving mode which cuts off the power completely after eight minutes of standby.
What’s surprising is that it has five buttons (left button, right button, scroll wheel, next page button, previous page button) which give you improved control over your computer and software.
If you are tired of using a traditional mouse, you may consider getting this for an extraordinary experience.
#3 Logitech M570 Wireless Trackball Mouse
This mouse features a design that can support your hand in one place.
With its trackball, you can move the cursor without the need of moving your arm.
It also has a back/forward button that makes you move quickly when browsing your documents or websites. Powered with a single AA battery, it can last for 18 months.
What I really like about this device is that it has fast data transmission and it connects even up to 30 feet away from your desktop computer.
Plus, you can have precise cursor control wherever you want to use your trackball. Believe me, it works on hard tables, comfy sofas, and even on your leg. This is a convenient feature which you cannot usually find in other devices.
#4 VicTsing MM057 2.4G Wireless Portable Mouse
The focal point of this mouse is its long durability.
Most customers who bought this at Amazon were fully satisfied with its sturdiness and staying power. It also has an impressive feature of longer connection reaching up to 33 feet, thanks to its 2.4 G Wireless Transmission Technology.
The contoured shape of this mouse is a compliment for easy use and comfort. I found the rubberized scroll wheel effective in scrolling without a slip.
Similar with other counterparts, this mouse has a sleep mode feature which powered off in eight minutes of inactivity.
If you want to keep the tiny receiver, it can be inserted into the slot next to the battery slot at the bottom.
Please note that the single AA battery is not included in the package.
#5 Logitech M510 Wireless Computer Mouse
This is another entry from Logitech, a company that specializes in personal computers and mobile peripherals.
The design is sleek and compact. I like the soft rubber grips of this mouse. Since it has an ergonomically sculpted design, it is both appropriate for right-handed or left-handed users.
The Unifying receiver has an extra feature which enables you to add up to five more Unifying devices with the same Logitech brand like wireless keyboard using a single receiver.
It requires two AA batteries (included) for power. The battery life is great which can last for two years.
#6 Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000
One thing that makes this mouse unique is its sporty design.
Unlike the Anker 2.4G, it doesn’t have a futuristic look. Nonetheless, it shows off a unique cross-hatched rubber on its side that guarantees a good grip.
We’re glad to know that this is the most affordable entry in the lineup of Microsoft’s wireless mice.
The only flaw on this device is that its AA battery will only last for ten months.
If you are set on getting this and can afford the price tag, you can also check out the Microsoft Arc Mouse, one of the company’s most innovative products.
#7 Jelly Comb 2.4G Slim Wireless Mouse
If you are not a brand-minded person, I think you can get good use out of the Jelly Comb 2.4G.
What I like is the purity of its design. It is plain and simple, nothing more.
Adding to its features is the auto sleep mode which activates when on standby after 8 minutes, which acts as the power saving mode. Though that is a common feature compared to other products in this list, the main draw of this device is its price. This is one of the most affordable wireless mice you can buy for only $9.00.
#8 Apple Magic Mouse 2
If budget is really not an issue for you, the Apple Magic Mouse 2 is right up your alley.
There is no magic at all, though. The Multi-Touch surface of this mouse that allows you to make simple gestures between swiping web pages and scrolling your documents may feel like wizardry, however.
It also pairs automatically with your Mac without the need of a USB receiver. No other spells needed.
Even more, this is completely a rechargeable mouse that makes this one stand out from the rest. You won’t have to worry about replacing the batteries from time to time unlike with other models.
Of course, you cannot simply ignore its captivating design. It is not just simple, but light and elegant as well, owing to Apple’s careful and meticulous design methods and principles.
Apple has long established its brand through products with superior quality and durability. There’s no doubt that you won’t be disappointed with this device.
My only issue here is that the design is not ergonomic. You may feel discomfort after a long period of usage since it is too flat to handle and there is barely any room to rest your palm. I think this is the only downside to this model.
The Bottom Line
Looking at todays’ technology, we’re still unsure how the innovations and designs of a wireless mouse will further evolve – sky’s the limit, after all.
For now, we know of its history as a basic PC peripheral, and how it has gone from being a wired device to a cordless accessory. Of course, it is still up to you if you prefer the traditional corded designs of older mice.
On my part, I feel a sense of ease and speed every time I work in front of my desktop or laptop with my wireless mouse by my side. Yes, it is a reliable buddy that you can depend on from start to finish, over and over again.
It’s no wonder then that this simple handheld pointing device has now become an essential part of our computer usage in today’s modern world of technology.
Hi! I need a new mouse. But I really want a cool one! And definitely, one that is ergonomic.
After hours of working on my PC every day, I know I desperately need an ergonomic mouse. And I love this Anker 2.4G Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Mouse you have reviewed! I’ll definitely purchase this one!
Thank you very much!
This is a fantastic collection of the best popular wireless mouse in 2019.
I already bought TeckNet mouse which is very helpful for me. I am going to save this article page in my favorite section. I believe this will be helpful for others also and I am going to buy another one for my laptop soon.
Thanks for providing such an informative article.
Thanks for sharing your experience. Our readers’ thoughts always matter to us.
We will be glad to hear from you again in the future.
WOW! I think that usability have to be the first thing to look for when you are searching for a mouse.
It’s an object that you can keep in hands for a long time and can generate pain if it’s not well designed. I’m very interested in seeing new features that go beyond the usual designs trying to be more and more comfortable!
Here you have some device very innovative! Thanks!
First of all, thank you for this great and cool list of wireless mouses!
Have to say that what makes me interested, is most times the design lol! And have to say that some of the designs look so cool, however, am looking for one that will not break easily and that works with my old HP laptop.
What would you recommend for me in that case?
Thanks again for this cool list, love your site by the way!
It is good to hear from you, John.
Most of the wireless mouse on the list is compatible with all types of laptop and desktop as long as it meets the required Bluetooth standard.
Though each of us has different likings and taste, you are free to try whatever that makes you feel comfortable.
In my opinion, I personally like the Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000. It gives me a good grip due to its cross-hatched rubberized design on the side. Its size is not too big and not too small either.
Hi, thanks for your review.
I am a huge fan of wireless mouses and keyboard. Sometimes I have a small problem with them. It does not matter how expensive they are.
Thanks to pages like this I can be sure, that product I am buying will meet my requirements. I hope to find here more useful content.
You’re welcome Igor.
WOW! I never considered there to be so many different styles of the same thing, and they are all so cool.
Clearly, preference would definitely depend entirely upon the user. The VicTsing is more like I am accustomed to so an upgrade to the MS 4000 would be like changing styles from penny loafers to running shoes.
Thank you for your information, BCNU Rod
Thanks, Rod for taking your time to share your thoughts.
Yes, I agree with you, deciding which one is best for you on the list is a matter of personal preference. Making a selection in a row is confusing but there is nothing wrong in trying something that will make you feel comfortable.
Have a great day!
I must say that this article is very informative and helpful Del.
I have never used a wireless mouse but I think that it is a powerful thing to use and have. What I like the most about this mouses is its awesome design that is unique and attractive.
I will definitely buy one for my desktop computer, it is definitely worth the price.
I am glad that you found this post helpful.
I hope you will surely enjoy using a wireless mouse with your desktop. In perspective, there is nothing different between a mouse with a tail and without a tail. But I think what will make you feel ease is the comfort of being cordless and portable.
Of course, the artistry and style of each design is a compliment.
