Our Top Picks

Best Overall: Logitech’s MX Master 2S

4.5

Widely regarded as the best mouse available, Logitech’s MX Master 2S is the class leader for overall performance. Compatible with Logitech’s Flow technology, the Master 2S connects with multiple devices seamlessly (and even includes a copy-paste function between different computers). Alongside Flow technology, the Logitech adds support for dual connectivity, allowing up to three Windows or Mac computers to connect via the unifying receiver or through Bluetooth technology, which eliminates the need for any additional hardware on a desktop.

The track virtually anywhere feature adds support for the Master 2S to work on any surface (even glass). The re-chargeable battery lasts up to 70 days on a single charge and the design was engineered not only with performance in mind, but also ergonomics for a comfort that’s sculpted to conform to the shape of a hand for a naturally comfortable position.

Best Anywhere Mouse: Logitech MX Anywhere 2S Wireless Mouse

Logitech’s Anywhere Mouse “works everywhere you do,” from office desks and kitchen islands to coffee shop tables and airplane tray tables. It can also navigate seamlessly between up to three computer screens, copying and pasting text and images from one screen to the next. It boasts a 4000 DPI laser sensor that gives you smooth tracking on almost any surface, including glass.

The mouse’s design is crafted for comfort and productivity, featuring hyper scrolling and customizable buttons via the Logitech Options Software. But what good is a wireless mouse without a reliable battery? The MX Anywhere 2S holds a charge for up to 70 days and can be topped up with a full day’s charge in just four minutes via microUSB.

Best Apple Mouse: Magic Mouse 2

Designed solely for Apple’s computer line, the Magic Mouse 2 is a typical Apple design that skips on buttons and scroll wheels and opts for a multi-touch surface instead. Swiping between Web pages or scrolling through documents requires nothing more than the brush of a finger with minimal desk resistance, thanks to an optimized foot design. The built-in battery lasts around 30 days before requiring a recharge through the included Lightning-to-USB cable (it'll fullly charge in nine hours). Apple’s inclusion of multi-touch gestures such as swiping, scrolling and zooming are all a refreshing way to use the mouse. Weighing just 7.2-ounces, Apple’s unique take on the mouse offers a love-it-or-hate-it approach but if you love it, its feature-set is hard to resist.

Best Budget: VicTsing 2.4G

With technology that maximizes battery life for longer performance, the VicTsing 2.4G wireless mobile mouse is a great choice at a truly budget-friendly price. With five adjustable CPIs to help your ideal scroll speed, the 2.4GHz wireless technology has a 50-foot range before dropping signal. Aside from wireless performance, the VicTsing’s ergonomic shape and build were designed to be both sweat-resistant and skin-friendly for all-day comfort and support.

 

A rest position for your little finger adds extra support not often found on mice that are quadruple the price. Compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux, the VicTsing maximizes battery life with energy-saving features (shuts down after eight minutes of no use), which allows it to last up to 15 months on a single AA battery.

Best Comfort: Logitech M570

Logitech’s M570 wireless trackball mouse might not be the most eye-catching of the bunch, but its sculpted shape helps support and keep your hand in one place. The trackball bears all the workload weight with smooth, precise cursor control whether you’re working on your desk or any other room in the home or office. With battery life good for up to 18 months on one included AA battery, the 2.4GHz wireless connection works up to 30 feet away on both Windows and Mac operating systems. With a bevy of buttons and a unique design, there’s plenty of reason to think this mouse represents a new whole way of working online.

Best Gaming Mouse: Logitech G602

There’s no shortage of competition in the gaming wireless mouse space, so standing out from the pack requires an impressive set of features. Fortunately, Logitech’s G602 delivers with more than 250 hours of battery life and a shelf life rated at more than 20 million clicks. In fact, Logitech delivers a two-millisecond response rate alongside Delta Zero sensor technology. This gaming mouse offers both an ultra-durable build that can stand up to even the most intense gaming experience. Add in 11 programmable buttons and support for Windows and Mac operating systems and you’ll find a gaming-friendly mouse that won’t break the bank. Logitech claims a lag-free gaming-grade experience and the online reviews deliver with a 4.3 out of 5-star Amazon rating.

Best Design: Logitech M510 Wireless Mouse

Ergonomically, a well-designed mouse provides comfort and efficiency over long periods of use. That’s why we love the Logitech M510 so much. The mouse is contoured comfortably to support your hand and wrist and there are rubber grips on the side for your thumb and pinky. Unfortunately, the two buttons on the left side limit its users to righties only.

As for productivity, you can customize shortcut tasks for all of its buttons to make it easier to do tasks such as switch applications, open windows and tabs or jump to full screen. The laser tracks smoothly across every surface (barring mirrored ones like glass) and Logitech claims the battery lasts up to two years with daily use. If you’re a power user, you’ll be pleased to know that Logitech’s Unifying receiver plugs in via USB and connects to up to six devices, including keyboards, to free up previous ports.

Best Battery Life: Logitech Marathon Mouse M705

Logitech’s Marathon Mouse M705 is appropriately named with battery life (powered by one AA battery) that can last up to three years. The M705 is so power efficient that it can vastly outlast most wireless mouse options on the market by 2x the total battery life. Fortunately, battery life isn’t all the M705 does well. It has an ergonomic design with a sculpted shape that fits your hand naturally. Advanced tracking offers an ultra-responsive and accurate cursor control while working on various surfaces without skipping a beat. The three integrated thumb buttons offer quick and easy multitasking with quick swapping between applications. With an easy-to-swallow price tag and battery life that can last longer than your computer, there’s plenty of reason to give the M705 a look.

Best Mobile Mouse: FD V8 Ultrathin Silent Travel Mouse

Measuring 1.3 inches thick and weighing just 3.52 ounces, the FD V8 travel mouse is remarkably sleek, making it an ideal travel companion for work trips. It also eliminates 90% of click noise, so you can work in public spaces without disturbing your neighbors.

The FD V8 mouse comes with a small receiver that plugs into your computer’s USB port. Its 2.4GHz wireless connection provides accurate cursor tracking (without a mouse pad), along with a hyper-fast rate of return speed (250Hz) at a max distance of 20 meters. Additionally, the device uses an energy-efficient battery, automatically powering down after 5 minutes of idling. It doesn’t need an on/off switch; the mouse wakes up with a quick click and is ready to go. On standby, the charge will last for about 36 months. The FD V8 mouse comes in five vibrant colors, each with a glossy finish to brighten up your workspace.

How We Tested

Our reviewers spent 120 hours testing a top-rated wireless mouse. To get the most comprehensive results possible, they connected it to their computers and used it for hours at a time. We asked our testers to consider the most important features when using this wireless mouse, from connectivity to comfort. We've outlined them here so that you, too, know what to look for when shopping.

What to Look for in a Wireless Mouse

PC vs. Mac compatibility - It’s easier to find mice that work with Windows and Mac operating systems than it is to find keyboards that do both. Still, it’s important to make sure the wireless mouse you choose is compatible with your system. If you’re using a Windows-oriented mouse with a Mac, consider remapping its buttons to make it easier to use.

Bluetooth vs. USB - There are advantages to both Bluetooth and USB mice. Bluetooth mice are truly portable. They connect to a receiver in your computer, so there’s no dongle required. On the other hand, Bluetooth mice can sometimes have more performance and connection issues than their USB counterparts.

Portability - If you want a mouse that you can take on the road, it’s important to consider whether you want a full-size mouse or a smaller one. However, portable mice usually aren't ergonomic — they may cause more strain than the full-size versions that are designed to fit your hand.

“This is the most comfortable, useful, and good-looking mouse I’ve ever used,” raved one of our testers. Our reviewers also loved its customization features, with one reporting that “the customizable buttons saved me seconds [at a time] which added up to saving me time overall.” One downside, though, was that its setup was complex, according to one tester: “I didn't understand how to set it up and the instructions provided were not very helpful,” she said. One of our reviewers also thought it was a little pricey — but ultimately, still a great buy. “I think, at first, I’d be hesitant to buy it given its price point,” she said, “but it’s absolutely worth it.”
