At this point, there are only so many ways you can improve on a wireless mouse. We’ve given them hyper-precise optical sensors, eliminated the wires and improved the battery life to the point where a computer can last months at a time before it runs out of juice. But the mouse that’s part of the all-new Lenovo Go line of computer accessories seems to have found the one-remaining thing that can be improved: recharging.
On the whole, the Lenovo Go Wireless Multi-Device Mouse is a humble piece of tech. But on its underside, this mouse has the necessary hardware so that you can place it on a wireless charging pad and give it enough battery power to last 1.5 months before it needs to be recharged.
This might seem like a whatever feature since every other smartphone and pair of wireless earbuds supports wireless charging these days. But it always seems like you never have the right battery or cable conveniently on hand. And as we start to have wireless chargers around the house and our workspaces, recharging this mouse could be as effortless as setting it down while you’re not using it. Plus, we can’t think of a single other mouse that does this.
That said, if you’re a traditionalist, you can still very much charge this with a USB-C cable.
As for other features, the Lenovo Go Mouse has your standard left-click and right-click buttons, a blue light optical sensor, the ability to connect to your computer via Bluetooth or 2.4 GHz wireless, and dedicated buttons that lets you quickly switch control between three paired devices and control your Microsoft Teams calls. These are mostly standard features at this point, but ones that will make it a competent device to use.
This is also one of the first of many accessories from the Lenovo Go line that will focus on those who aren’t working in the traditional office setting. This will include headphones and speakers with microphones specifically built for video conferencing and power banks that can keep your devices powered all day.
As far as availability goes, this new mouse should be available very, very soon starting in June, and will retail for $59.99. Be sure to check back here for the latest retailers offering this clever device.
