Logitech’s 2017 Doodle wireless mice boast battery life of up to 18-months

Logitech has launched the ninth iteration of its Doodle Collection wireless mice, with a fun and character-laden collection of mouse skins to spice up your peripherals. Designed to work on Windows, MacOS, Chrome OS, and Linux, the little mice are ultra portable, have a long wireless range and have a battery life that can last as long as 18 months.

As much as gaming mice have a real focus on aesthetics, with fancy lighting and paint jobs, Logitech knows that gamers aren’t the only ones who like fun-looking accessories. To that end, its M317C and M325C wireless mice are now available in a variety of different colors and styles, each featuring a unique ‘doodle,’ often with a character of some sort showcased at its center.

There’s Triple Scoop the artistic ice cream cone; Sneakerhead, a trophy-winning sneaker who wears sneakers; Skateburger, who is exactly what you would expect it to be, and Lightbulb, the battery-powered incandescent bulb, among others.

Regardless of doodle design though, the mice themselves are miniature wireless rodents that make use of the 2.4GHz spectrum and can operate up to 10 meters away from the nano USB receiver. They come fitted with Logitech’s own optical sensor and have a static sensitivity of 1,000 DPI.

Beyond the unique look of the new Logitech Doodle mice, the big selling point with them is their battery life. With just a single AA battery, the Logitech M317C is capable of up to 12 months of operation. In contrast, the M325C can deliver up to 18 months of life on the same single battery.

That battery is included, and each mouse comes with a one-year limited hardware warranty. Better yet, they also come with a sheet of 15 premium stickers, so even if you found it hard to choose which Doodle design to pick, you’ll have some stickered versions to keep you company after you’ve made your purchase.

The mice are available now in the U.S., priced at $30.

New true wireless earbuds on Indiegogo claim an insane 15-hour battery life
sonabuds 2 pro true wireless earbuds indiegogo

True wireless earbuds can be awesome, but they currently come with serious limitations. Even recently released models, like Soul Electronics’ Emotion, only offer up to six hours of playback time per charge, and that’s better than a lot of the competition. That may be set to change, however. The Sonabuds 2 Pro, which are currently surging past their goal on Indiegogo, promise up to 15 hours of playback on a single charge, which is triple what you'll get from Apple's AirPods and way beyond anything else we’ve seen so far.

Of course, there is a lot of room for skepticism here. The original Sonabuds, which are still available on Amazon, only supported two hours of playback time per charge. Even the non-Pro Sonabuds 2, which are also part of the Indiegogo campaign, promise to deliver up to eight hours of playback time on a single charge, and up to 40 hours of total battery life with the included charging case, which in itself would present a major step forward for the segment.
