Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't even think of buying one of these - they're junk! When I unpacked it, I discovered that it rattled like a baby's toy. Took the battery cover off, turned it upside down, and kept on shaking it until the loose part eventually fell out: a lump of surplus solder about 4mm long. Guess it must've been the Quality Control guy's day off when they made this one. In spite of that, the mouse worked, so I stuck with it. Now, just 12 days later, the battery supplied is flat; and that despite me switching it off religiously every night. Sorry, Maplin, this isn't remotely acceptable. It'll be heading back to your shop

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery killer! This mouse slaughters batteries in just 2-3 days. You'll pay the price of the mouse in batteries in just a month.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought this and after 3 batteries in 1 week the scroll wheel stopped working as well so I will be taking it back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The battery lasts a few hours at best on mine. Just tried a duralcell (long life) ,went out for few hours forgetting it on and upon return it was dead too. Seemed quite good for the few hours I've ever managed to use it but with a virtually non-existent battery-life it's unfortunately a waste of time and money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sticky to use. Have to shake often to get moving. Also wireless won't work when plugged into usb at back so using up a valuable usb slot on the front of the computer. Wish I hadn't bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and Good Quality easy to use. Best Mouse I've had.. I am so shocked at some of the reviews. I've actually had mine for 3+ years and that's why I felt the need to write a review. It's never broke. All functioning fine, Battery last for ages. (It does have an on/off button) maybe people should try and use it. I would recommend this mouse to anyone. 5 Stars

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works okay I've been using this mouse for almost 3 months. The supplied batteries lasted about 4 weeks. A newer set of Panasonic batteries are now into their second month and I'm using it a lot more. I do switch the mouse off at the end of the day and usually when I'm away from the laptop. I'm using it on a Windows 10 machine and have found that it must be set at quite a slow setting in the control panel, otherwise double-clicking can be hit and miss. It can also be a bit jerky. I've never used another mini-mouse before so can't compare it to the competition, but it isn't as good as 3 other larger wireless Logitech mice I've used. Finally the wheel sometimes gets a bit jammed after taking it out of my bag, where it gets knocked around, but clears once I push the wheel sideways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I hesitated to try such a small device, but now I really like it. Will likely get others for workstations as well as laptops. I've had no problems with batteries, still on the first one after months.

How do I sync the receiver to the mouse?

Asked by: hammi1
The mouse comes pre synced to the reviver so it is simply plug the reviver in and use the mouse.
