Mighty Mouse battery life indicator is very conservative
Authored by: randykato on Dec 24, '08 11:11:33AM

Rechargeables don't hold a charge long. They drain as they sit unused, so even when they're in the mouse and it's not being used, they're losing charge.

Try the Eneloop batteries. They're a new breed of rechargeables that don't lose their charge. I've been using these in my BT mouse & keyboard and they last much much longer... similar to alkalines.

I'll second the recommendation for Sanyo Eneloop batteries. They don't have as much charge in them to start off with (only 2000mAh) compared to some of the better NiMh which are 2500+ BUT as mentioned, they don't sit there discharging when doing nothing. They won't last as long in constant use theoretically but for keyboards, mice and cameras I find that in *practice* they last much longer.

Buy two sets and charge the second set. It'll still be charged months later when the first set runs out so you're not let down by a discharged second set of NiMh.
