Is there a reason why there aren't more bluetooth 4.0 mouse right now ? It's been about 2 years since its been released and there's still only 3 mouse that use it .

I believe it uses less power, therefore, longer battery life.
But the battery life on my magic mouse isn't bad, while I'd accept a better longer lasting mouse I'm happy with what I have. I don't see a huge market for BT 4 mice.

How long is the battery life for you and what type of batteries do you use? When I tried using the Magic Mouse that came with my computer I would have to replace the batteries every 2 to 3 weeks.
