Let’s see what the most successful functions of wireless mice are. Many mice offer working with fewer movements now. For example, the hyper fast scrolling function or function of zooming in and out with only one click of the button. Many gamers wish to have more buttons to play with all the fingers. Now they have such an opportunity. The latest models of wireless mice have bigger number of buttons and the functions can be spread to more than two fingers. Besides some models of wireless mice can be used for both left and right hands.
The material is also important to build an ergonomic computer mouse. Wireless mice are made of plastic. But it has some drawbacks.

The batteries are not a big deal because their lifespan is very long from 15 months to three years. And the batteries are easy to replace, their price is quite affordable. Many models have an indicator that keeps you well informed of the need to replace the batteries.
