A Wireless Mouse Without Batteries – The Genius DX-ECO Blueye Mouse

These days, everyone hates wires.  It’s all about wireless connectivity these days and wireless devices. It’s no wonder that we also want wireless accessories that connect to our devices, but with wireless technology comes the fact that a lot of these accessories suck down a lot of power and usually at the cost of depleted batteries or time waster recharging them. Genius may have just solved that problem.

With the introduction of their new DX-ECO, Genius has figured out a way to remove the battery from the equation and instead, rely on a gold capacitor that will recharge the mouse in a matter of 3 minutes while being able to keep that charge for a full day of use. That is very impressive especially for such a short charge time and the price seems really good to at only $39.99.
