I don't fancy buying and swapping/charging AA batteries, for example.

Are there any models that have a built in battery (can be AA if it wants to, doesn't have to be something along the lines of a mobile phone battery) that can be charged with a dock or via. USB cable or something like that?

Microsoft Wireless Lazer Mouse is a good option, I have (not using) one of these, which has a rechargeable AA battery installed and comes with a mains powered charging dock/stand.

Logitech G700 fits the bill.

I use the Logitech Performance MX, which uses standard micro-USB cables like any modern phones.

Unsure if you want a gaming mouse or not.


I have Logitech M305, M315, and M317. With these mice, I can get about 3 months of hard use on a single AA battery. So that is 4 batteries a year. I don't see that you are wasting batteries.
