Looking to finally dismiss the idea that a wireless computer mouse can’t hold a charge for long, Logitech has announced a trio of new wireless mice promising as much as two years of life on a single AA battery. They aren’t the most high-end rodents in the world, nor do they sport gamer RGB lighting, but they will last a long, long time.
The two most recent additions to Logitech’s lineup are the M220 Silent and M330 Silent Plus, which as well as being able to hold their charge well, are obviously rather quiet. Logitech claims that each one is around 90 percent quieter than your average right-hand peripheral, reducing noise from drag and clicks by large margins.
Although not a feature that many are bothered by, having a quiet clicker can be a godsend for those in busy offices, or in public places that are typically rather quiet, like libraries.
With both new models being billed as quiet with long battery lives, you might wonder what’s so “plus” about the M330? Its battery life — it lasts up to two years, while the M220 can last for a year and a half. Physically they’re also a little different, with the M330 being right-handed only with a soft thumb rest, while the M220 is ambidextrous.
The M330 Silent Plus is set to go on sale in September, priced at $30, while the M220 will debut in October, with a reduced $25 price tag. Both can still be pre-ordered.
The third mouse mentioned in the introduction above, was shown off earlier this week. Known as the Logitech M720 Triathlon, it’s another wireless mouse with a two-year battery life, but it stands out from the crowd because it can be paired with up to three devices at once. From there, you can switch between them at the click of a button on the mouse, letting you jump between different devices without switching input mechanism.
This could be handy for those doing work on a PC and tablet simultaneously, or those who simply want a bit of extra control of their smartphone in certain situations. The Logitech M720 Triathlon is available now, with a price tag of $70.
