Love it


Just what I wanted for my tablet. Works great. I've been using for two weeks on the first battery charge. Small enough to be very portable, large enough to be comfortable to use. So far, I am completely satisfied.

I purchased this mouse to use with my Asus t100 2n1 tablet to free up the only USB port it had. It has performed exactly how I wanted it to, response quickly, nice and small for traveling but still not being a problem for my big hands, works as good if...
