Extend the Battery Life on a Computer Mouse
Edited by Inukshuk, Geraldin Carniyan, Lynn, Eng and 2 others
Some research has shown that an average person spends at least 13 hours, or more than half a day, every week on the internet. This is just an average user who checks his email and does a little bit of surfing and social networking. This means that people who use the internet for other purposes as well generally stay longer than 13 hours. While we can keep our Laptop or desktop computers plugged in all the time, a wireless mouse runs on a battery. This may result in its battery being drained quickly because of the amount of time it's in use. Although you cannot stop its battery from draining, you can at least extend its life by following some simple steps provided below.
