Wired ftw.

But if you're gonna stay with wireless, get rechargeables. I'm assuming you're using regular alkalines and/or lithiums? Rechargeables are a much better investment.

My mouse comes with a built in charging dock, how cool is that ! :laughing:

Yes, you'll need the charger too... I got a 30-minute charger that came w/ 4 AA and 4 AAA rechargeables from RadioShack.
