Battery issues in wireless mouse

    Purchased a wireless mouse fairly recently; runs on AA batteries, and it seemed to burn through them alarmingly quickly until I identified this issue only a few hours ago. Basically, the mouse behaves as if the battery is "dead" -- won't connect, won't switch on -- until I remove and re-insert the exact same battery, at which point it simply continues to work normally for some time. This happens maybe once every 48 hours, so it's hard to notice, and I know it doesn't have anything to do with leaving the device switched on. Not sure if this is a known issue with the product, but if anyone's had similar issues or identified fixes, I'd like to hear about them. I just can't feel secure using it for time-sensitive work or proctored exams, which is pretty annoying, so it's getting shelved until I can figure something out (because I would otherwise consider it a decent mouse for the price)..
    Thanks

    What mouse do you have?
    In which mode do you use it (BT / 2.4GHz dongle)?
    Have you check on fresh batteries?

    Yeah telling us what one you got would definitely help troubleshoot it, but usually general rule of thumb is use fresh batteries on wireless mice when possible (and if in doubt, just buy some while u at the store that u buy your batteries from)

    Most of us recommend the AA/AAA Lithium batteries for wireless mice as they generally last quite a long time without needing replaced albeit they cost a little bit more than regular alkalines but worth it in the long run! :)
