Hey guys, just a little update on my new wireless mouse I showed you earlier:
When the, probably very old, AAA batteries ran out of power I was like Hehe, no prob, and put in rechargeable ones I just got a new charging station for. And … nothing happened. 😮 Nothing. Not a fucking thing. I remembered it was the same with my headlamps, which also refused to give me any light when I put in rechargeable batteries. Shit. Fuk! 😦
Then I went crazy and tested all my batteries, only to find out they were all perfectly charged and fully functional. Only then it dawned on me there might be something more sinister going on here. Can it be mice and lamps just don’t work on rechargeable AAA batteries but need the power of real ones?
Bought a bunch, put them in and … VOILA!
Mousing and lighting like a champ! But should I be happy about that? About having to spend lotsa monies for throwaway batteries? I think not. So, people, a word of caution if I may: Take care, when buying little electrical doodads and gimmicky gimmicks, to get toys
who which use normal AA batteries. They have much less problems with accepting rechargeable ones.
Apart from that my Canyon mouse is doing a decently good job. It mouses. And I can adjust the resolution, a trick my much more expensive Logitech Performance MX can’t do.
