The latest product coming from Xiaomi Company, the Mi portable mouse, is a wireless mouse which supports 2.4GHz and Bluetooth 4.0 two ways connections. That’s something that the Apple Magic Mouse 2 does not allow. In addition, Mi portable mouse features its extreme portability, with a small size and light weight. And now, let’s take a look at something details.
This product is made of anodized aluminum and ABS plastic material. The surface has been sandblasted. With a small size, it weighs only 77.5 grams. Maybe due to the light weight, it does not touch a strong sense of metal, but more like a plastic material. It gets a thickness of only 23.6mm so that it can be put into most notebook bags easily.
The upper part of the mouse adopts a circular symmetrical design and is made of ABS plastic material, thus it feels relatively comfortable and gets better wear resistance. This is also a universal design for left and right hands. From the side view, due to the low side height, Mi portable mouse is more suitable for those who have small hands to use. Otherwise, users with big hands may feel a bit unsuited.
Before the first use, you need to remove the protective circular twisted cover at the bottom and the bottom-right transparent battery separator. And then, you can firstly toggle the middle switch and choose the model to use. If you need to use the 2.4GHz connection, you can connect the receiver to the computer and click the mode button to make it green to use. But if you need Bluetooth connection, then switch to the blue light. You can long press the mode key to fast blink blue light state and search for “MiMouse” via the computer or other devices for matching and connection. After that, it can be used.
Another noteworthy point is that this portable mouse uses a high-precision photoelectric sensor, which not only makes the DPI up to 1200, but also makes the mouse can be used on the wooden desktop, or even ground glass, fabric environment in addition to the conventional mouse pad.
Overall, the Xiaomi Bluetooth mouse is more like a portable mouse for mobile office working. It seems to be prepared for business people. In addition to the small size and portability, in my opinion, the biggest advantage of this mouse is supporting the 2.4GHz and Bluetooth dual-mode connection.
