Gigabyte has launched its ECO600 wireless laser mouse today - with an interesting claim attached.



Featuring a 2.4GHz wireless laser tracking engine, and on-the-fly adjustable DPI (800/1200/1600), battery life is quoted by the manufacturer as being up to 12 months in duration.

The USB receiver is of the nano-variety, and Gigabyte tells us that the ECO600 - as the name suggests - not only saves on battery costs, but is also environmentally friendly too thanks to its reduced energy consumption. From a usability point of view, there's an ergonomic design, and five programmable buttons to add to the mix.

Not that impressive, surely? My Kensington mouse I bought a couple of years ago lasts upwards of six months on a couple of AAAs. As does my Kensington keyboard, though that might be on AAs.
you know i was just thinking to myself, i could do with a more economical mouse :rolleyes:
The logitech M705 Marathon mouse lasts 3 years on 2 aa (you can also operate it with only one). I've got it with the similar battery life k340 (does need both batteries) under the unified receiver. Space bar misses often as it won't work consistently if you hit it side on.
Looks pretty though…
Environmentally friendly? I don't think saving a few AA batteries will do much for the environment!

In any event, this is nothing new. My Logitech mouse lasts six months on one battery, and has the added bonus of not being ugly and lacking gimmicky DPI buttons on the top.
