Easy way to make lighter and increase battery life

Instead of the Energizer alkaline AA batteries that came with the Magic Mouse, I put two Energizer Lithium Ultimate AA batteries in. They last longer and are noticeably lighter. Makes tracking around seem more fluid to me at least.

Lightness and longevity aside, we all should be using rechargeable batteries with the mouse. Batteries are not recyclable and end up in landfills where they leach toxins into the environment. I keep couple of AA batteries charged up and within easy reach; takes but a few seconds to pop new batteries in. I haven't timed the longevity but the rechargeables seem to last couple of months.

Yeah, I've been using a lot more batteries myself lately thanks to this mouse, my keyboard, and even wireless headphones. I'm actually purchasing a set of rechargeables this week.

(Fortunately for the Bay Area, there are a lot of places that will accept old / used batteries for drop off and proper disposal: Walgreens, any hardware store, etc)
