Question Battery Life on Wireless Optical Mouse

I got me a Targus Wireless Optical Mini Mouse with Charger


This mouse as a recharging dock so I can recharge the 2x AA Batteries in side.

Any one have any ideas on how many hours use I can get from a mouse before needing to recharge ?

No but I know a way of testing it! Take the mouse fully charged to a supermarket. Place the mouse on the conveyor-belt but comtinue to hold it so it doesn't move, but the conveyor does. Then just patiently tell other customers to use the next line......cause well.....you're busy. The conveyor will act as your movement.....
Time it until it runs outs. It'll only be a couple days.... :amazed:

:edit:
Awesome mouse BTW!!!

Or I could just do the same thing with the gym tread mill.

It's a little small, but for the price I paid for it, I am not going to complain.
Customer's notebook came with a free mouse, but I did not quote a free mouse to the customer.

I will use my JEDI MIND POWERS on them.......
Me :- This is not the cordless rechargible optical mouse you are looking for.
Employee :- This is not the cordless rechargible optical mouse we are looking for.
Me :- You can let me use your shop's conveyer belt.
Employee :- We can let you use our shop's conveyer belt
Me :- That will be all now....
