Genius Ships ‘Green’ Battery-Less Mouse
CHINO, CALIF. – Genius is shipping its rechargeable NX-Eco battery-free BlueEye wireless notebook mouse, which uses a long-life gold-plated capacitor that fully recharges in three minutes.
Shipping with a plastic Stick-N-Go mount to attach it to a notebook and a 2.4GHz USB pico receiver, the NX-Eco’s capacitor can withstand more than 100,000 recharges, drastically cutting down on the disposal of environmentally unfriendly disposable batteries, the company said.
It charges via an included MicroUSB cable, which can be stored inside the mouse when not in use.
The NX-Eco BlueEye sensor technology is said to allow for use on virtually any surface, including dusted glass, marble and thick carpet.
Featuring left click, right click, scroll and DPI adjust (800/1,600 dpi) buttons, the NX-Eco is plug and play and designed for use with either hand. It has a suggested retail of $39.99.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
