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


Thanks.

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.
