    docking stations?

    Well i know there are some mices that have a sort of docking station for charging, im wondering if its possible to get one for any mouse? got a mouse from my logitech set (mx90 ) and annoys the hell out of me when batteries die but with this type of thing it sort it?. If there isnt something like that then what do you guys think of the charging mouse mats?. Also, any recommendations for a cheap mouse with more then 3 buttons? (left/wheel/right) thats really cheap? like £10 .

    Thanks.

    If the mouse didn't come with a charging station/cradle, you're snookered
    Your best bet, would be to use rechargeable batteries in it... and always have (at least) two other batteries handy.

    As for a cheap mouse... there are literally 100's of 'em available
    Just visit your favoured online stores, and see what they've got. Or Google!

    If you want another wireless mouse... Google '5 button Wireless Optical Mouse With USB Charging Cradle', or 'Sweex 1600dpi Wireless 5-Button Rechargeable USB Laser Mouse'/'Sweex 5-button USB WiFi Laser Mouse' - which is also supplied with a charging cradle.

    If you want a wired mouse... Google 'Typhoon Sure Shot Laser Mouse'.
    There's also the 'A4Tech X7 X-750F Laser Gaming Mouse' (reviewed here)... but you can expect to pay anywhere from £15 - £20 for one

    Re: docking stations?

    thanks for the info, use rechargeable batteries already but annoying thing is that they last so long that the charge of the spare ones is dead by the time i change them .
