    Have you tried "Edam" or "Wensleydale" hehe! just could not resist kevin.

    Yes unfortunately we had to get rid of ours because of this very fact. We invested in new 2000 mAh rechargables which lasted a little longer.

    I dumped my Microsoft wireless mouse for the same reason...

    I prefer the ones with wires anyway; they don't get lost so easily!

    I've got a wireless Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer 2 at home and find 2 rechargable AAs (usually 1750-2000mAh) last between 3 and 6 months. Best wireless mouse ever in my opinion.

    I also usually find Belkin products perform a lot worse than others.

    I've gone the same route with mine and rechargeables do seem to work the best.. Have roughly the same usage as WM too with my 2400mAh batteries

    Our K/bs and mice are all Logitech models.
    We've got them all running on re-chargeables and they last for a long time.

    You can get 2700 and possibly 2800 mAh batteries now and fast chargers from www.7dayshop.com and there's no VAT as they are from Geurnsey.

    Hope that helps.
