I have a Logitech G7, and love it. I like that when the battery goes low, I can swap out for the spare that's in the receiver, and recharge the dead one.

It's getting old, and the batteries aren't holding a charge, so I think it's time to replace it. I'm a bit dubious about the replacement OEM batteries online.

Any suggestions? While I don't use that system as much as I used to, I don't want to get stuck with a dead battery, but don't want to have to put trips in it either.

I like their cordless trackball.

Fits in a fairly small space. No need to move it around like a regular mouse. Buttons are configurable.

I like the two members of the Logitech MX line. The darkfield technology works great.

Peace,

I use the Logitech Anywhere MX mouse. I love the form factor fit for my hand. I believe it's one of the darkfield mice.

Excellent choice, one of Logitech's darkfield mice. Two very good, less expensive mice would be the M310 (which has a tiny nano receiver that plugs into USB port), I have one and it's an inexpensive delight to use. It also has an on/off switch.
The other would be the M510, which is designed with tablets in mind. All three are laser mice and have extended battery life. The Anywhere MX and M510 mice use a "Unifying receiver", tiny like the M310 nano receiver, but having the capability of being simultaneously .used with other devices, such as keyboards.

I also have a 505 and it and the 510 batteries last 16 to 18 months for me.
I have both mine programmed so that when you press the side of the wheel that it will go back or forward. Saves a lot of moving the mouse.
