I’m a huge fan of all things Logitech so I often get emails from them with money off voucher codes, this time, when I clicked through (sucker) I found I have 25% off and the headline – Logitech are having a mouse party, of course I had to find out more. It wasn’t house party with a typo..
Logitech are having a mouse party
So what was it all about .. well – Logitech have got a new Wireless Mouse the M238 and its so cute and colourful – I love the web page for it too. You can scroll through 9 different quirky and colourful designs to see how they look. They’ve got all these weird and wonderful hands holding the mouse to show that you can have whatever design to make your personality shine, I like it! Check out The Party Selection
Being a hard computer user, working all day on the PC and playing all night either blogging, surfing or gaming I have never got on with a wireless mouse and keyboard as they were always running out of batteries – so for years now I’ve not bothered.
However, the M238 Wireless mouse is fitted with an AA battery that they say will last a year with normal use, still even it if was 6 months that would be a great improvement, but I’m assuming then that you can’t replace this battery? I’ve asked on Twitter, let’s see if they reply in time 🙂 I’m guessing it can be replaced as the hardware has a 2-year warranty. So @logitech replied 2 hours later – with this information – yes it can be replaced – Battery life and replacement
Oh yes, and this mouse is really small too, so great for taking around to meetings and stuff when you are on the go with your laptop or tablet – I do love the small versions of mice – but at the moment I have a Logitech gaming mouse G302, which is pretty large not the hardcore one with thousands of buttons, because they are too big for my hands.
It’s not a bad price either £19.90 with my 25% discount – I am tempted! 🙂
Nice one Logitech ! Love the mouse party angle!
