I don't see the issue. Why would they be any different power consumption wise than any number of BT wireless mice on the market already.

i guess the sensors require more power to operate...thus draining the batterys at too fast of a rate. thats just what i was told.. im no expert

Power conumtpion might be a problem because of the 360 ball and the squeeze buttons, the whole mouse has a lot of special sensring technology, the mosue can be pressed which is a very delicate mechanism if you've ever looked and felt closely how the WHOLE mouse get's pressed but th MM "knows" you're pressing the ball, it can be rolled - so therei is a lot of tech in there, plus, apple's design might not have been devised for power issues at the beginning, much like their powerbooks :-) .
It just looks good, and to make it look good some loss in optimal power usage is possible.

did you hear this from an apple employee at a retail store ? cause if so its no more him speculating then anyone on this forum. apple does not tell their retail employee's anything. no new updates. they find out stuff when everyone else does. so take this with a grain of salt as some retail stores employee guessing. uness it came from somewhere else in apple.

no it was an employee.. so it could be speculation like you say i guess... but he told me as if it were fact not speculation...
