    How long does it hold with both one and two batteries (approximately)?


    Thanks.

    I've had mine since the beginning of August, and it's still on the same set of Energizer Lithium-Ion AA batteries. I do regularly (not always) turn it off at night though.

    My regular apple BT mouse went over six months on a set of batteries.

    I've had mine since a few days after they were introduced and have left it on almost all the time and it's still showing full.

    Is this basic regular use? it doesn't sound like 12 -14 hours a day heavy useage...

    Clearly, no. But if you're going to be using it 12-14 hours a day, you'd have to expect that a battery-operated wireless mouse isn't going to last all that long. Still, I'm guessing, based on my usage, that it'd last over a week with good batteries, less with rechargeables.

    I use mine between 4 and 16 hours a day, (depends whether at home or not), and after a month the Keyboard and Mouse Bluetooth tab in System Preferences show up as both full bars, (keybaord used as much).

    My guess will be about 6 months on current usage. I do intend to replace the Lithiums with Duracell Pro Cells though. If you want a long life, better off using good long life (cheap) batteries.
