Genius Introduces Energy Mouse in North America
Author: Cássio Lima Date: September 27, 2013 - 5:32 AM PST

More Info: http://www.geniusnet.com.tw/wSite/ct?xItem=58453&ctNode=105
Power

Genius has announced the Energy Mouse, a unique device that serves as both a power bank and a fully functional mouse in one stylish package. With this device, business people, travelers, and students can recharge their electronic devices, such as smartphones, when on-the-go, and negates the need to carry a separate power bank.

Equipped with a 2700mAh battery, the Energy Mouse has more than enough juice to fully recharge your electronic devices. No need to worry about draining the power bank battery while using the mouse — a separate battery reserve is used to power the mouse. The built-in lithium-ion battery can be charged with the included USB cable.

As a full-sized contoured mouse with rubber hand grips, Energy Mouse brings comfort to notebook users who use unreliable trackpads and tiny, uncomfortable mice.

The Genius patented Magic Roller scroll wheel makes it a breeze to scroll up and down on websites and documents.

2.4 GHz wireless technology ensures a steady and reliable connection with an operating range of up to 30 feet. The tiny USB pico receiver can be left in the USB port adding more convenient portability. When not in use the pico receiver can be stored under the mouse.

Four LEDs indicate charge status as well as the amount of power left. To check on the status of the battery simply hold down the “lightning bolt” button on the top of the mouse for two seconds.

Energy Mouse is currently available in Metallic Blue, Metallic Red, Silver or Pink for the suggested retail price of USD 34.99.

The fully modular RM Series PSUs include low-profile black cables, enabling enthusiasts to easily build PCs that are uncluttered and run cooler and quieter. Optional individually sleeved cable kits are available in multiple colors to allow users to customize the look of their PCs.
