bluetooth mouse battery usage

the bluetooth mouse that came with my imac needs to have its batteries replaced about once a month. Does that compare to yours?

It seems like I'm replacing them a lot but this is my first bluetooth mouse so I don't know.

If that's a lot, what should I be doing to make the batteries last longer?

I don't know about the Mac one but my PC Bluetooth mouse requires a battery change every three weeks. So it sounds fine to me.

Yes, about a month seems about right. However, I bought my iMac on September 1 and the original supplied keyboard batteries are still going strong at 87%!

sounds about right on a pair of decent brand batteries, less if you use some really bad cheap ones.

It uses alot more than my apple bluetooth keyboard (2 pairs in 8 months) and my magic trackpad (still on 1st set after 4 months)

Rechargeable Eneloops are really the best way to go here.
