    Specs:
    Imac 24" Iphone 3GS
    Minor Irritation with Wireless Mighty Mouse
    I have 2 minor irritations with my Bluetoothed might mouse connected to a 28inch Imac.
    a) It eats batteries at a scary rate, I would guess I have to replace the Duracells about every 6 weeks. This seems pretty high use. I have a bluetooth keyboard and the batteries in that seem to last forever.

    b) The little tracking ball on the top seems to have stopped working, but I can see no user way of cleaning or anything else. Any suggestions as it was a handy thing to have
    TIA

    Specs:
    Al iMac 20" 2.4Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Track ball - put a small dollop of keyboard cleaner on top and then vigorously rub the mouse upsidedown on a piece of paper.

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    Try Energizer Lithium batteries.

    Using 4 hours per day average ten weeks for mouse and months and months and months for keyboard. And never ever consider the rechargeables.
