Our Top 5 Contenders for Best Wireless Mice Options for Remote Work
When it comes to peripherals and office essentials, best is often subjective. What’s best for you depends on a few things including the type of work you do and your personal work style.
That’s why we’ve rounded up five of our most practical and wireless mice to give you a sense of what sort will best aid your remote home routine.
1. Pro Fit® Ergo Vertical Wireless Mouse
Got a click-intensive job? Try the Pro Fit® Ergo vertical wireless mouse.
This ergonomic mouse sports a contoured shape and 46.7-degree slope to keep your hand in a neutral position and thus eliminates the soft tissue compression, known to be one cause of carpal tunnel syndrome. It’ll feel like shaking hands with your mouse.
It even comes with an extended lip to support your pinky finger and the muscles in your hand.
Why we love it:
- It’s plug and play: You’ve got better things to do than fiddle with hardware.
- Six-button design: Comfort marries functionality with a scroll wheel plus DPI buttons to change scrolling speed.
- Nano receiver storage: Take your mouse with you wherever you work without worrying about losing your receiver.
- Efficient power usage: One AA battery lasts up to a year. The mouse will even tell you via flashing red light when it’s almost time to replace the battery.
- Ergonomist-approved: A 2019 study done by independent ergonomists rated our vertical mouse as the most comfortable mouse on the market.
2. Pro Fit® Bluetooth® Mobile Mouse
If you’re on the go a lot, the Pro Fit® Bluetooth® mobile mouse is an easy, convenient choice.
A high-definition laser gives you precise pointing, while Bluetooth® technology gets you up and scrolling in seconds. It has a scroll wheel, an automatic power-off feature, and is compatible with a wide range of operating systems.
A Bluetooth® mobile mouse is great when:
- You’ve got a thin laptop: Chromebooks™ and Ultrabooks™ are super popular, but they achieve their thinness by eliminating things like CD-ROMS and many ports. When you’ve got limited USB ports, a Bluetooth® mouse makes sure they stay free for other accessories.
- You’re ambidextrous: Use a mouse with your left hand? The symmetrical design lets you switch to whichever side of the brain you’re feeling.
- You don’t want extras: Sometimes you need nine buttons with 36 possible combinations – sometimes you just want to keep it simple. With this mouse, you can embrace functionality over frills and keep it simple, smarty.
3. Pro Fit® Full-Size Wireless Mouse
Are you tired of charging your mouse, but want something with more functionality? Check out the Pro Fit® Full-Size Wireless Mouse.
Featuring a high-definition optical sensor, this mouse is perfect for personal or professional use. You can easily move files, music, or pictures between your computer and portable devices quickly and efficiently with a high-speed wireless connection. The contoured shape supports your hand for hours of comfortable mousing - even during long work sessions.
We’re huge fans of the Pro Fit® Full-Size Wireless Mouse because of its:
- Ergonomic, right-handed shape with soft rubber grip:: Add comfort and productivity to your day with the Pro-Fit full-size wireless mouse. A contoured shape and soft rubber grip provide a natural feel and all-day ease of use.
- Plug-and-play USB connection: Plug it in and get to work. That’s especially great when you switch between computers a lot.
- Forward/back buttons: The forward/back buttons provide the most effective means to navigate through windows and web pages. Plus, the unique scroll wheel is designed for both comfort and precision.
4. Pro Fit® Mobile Retractable Mouse
Maybe you want a wired mouse, but you don’t want to deal with the wire… we’ve got you covered. The Pro Fit® mobile retractable mouse gives you the best of both worlds.
The retractable USB cable stores neatly inside the mouse when you’re on the move, then gives you the plug-and-play reliability of a wired mouse when you need it. That makes it extra convenient when you travel and need something reliable but easy to pack.
Try the Pro Fit® Wireless Mid-Size Mouse if you:
- Need a simple, practical mouse solution: With simple controls and a compact design, you’ll have accurate pointing power anywhere.
- Prefer an older Windows operating system: Windows 7 and even XP remain popular around the world, running on hundreds of millions of machines. This mouse works with them just fine.
5. Mouse for Life – Wireless and Wired Options
The Mouse for Life – available in wireless or wired flavors – is the One Mouse to Rule Them All. Sleek, simple, and utterly no-nonsense, it’s what we reach for when we need something that will get our job done – and let us keep getting our job done. Forever.
The Mouse for Life is designed to last, but that’s just one of our favorite things about it. We also love the:
- Silent clicking: Whether you’re working in a quiet location or hate the sound of a click, the Mouse for Life makes sure that the only things you hear are your thoughts.
- 1000 DPI sensor: The high-definition optical sensor means smooth movements and near-perfect accuracy for optimal performance.
- Plug-and-play installation: A wired, or wireless, USB receiver gets you the powers of a Mouse for Life in under 30 seconds.
- Five-year limited warranty: The average lifespan of a computer mouse is around three years. Our warranty, and the Mouse for Life’s natural life expectancy, exceeds that.
