At Gadgets 4 Guys we see new tech and gadgets come out every single day that improve upon what came before them. However, we’re always puzzled when we see people that continue to use dated technology when there is such better solutions out there. How many of your parents still use a flip phone? It is time to get them into the modern century with a phone that can actually get on the internet. We all have a determined grandpa or family member that also refuses to use any kind of GPS device (or buy a phone that has GPS) and pulls out a folding map to tell you how to get to a location. It even stretches to the type of search engine that people use. We don’t know why anybody out there would still use Lycos over Google but there are obviously some people out there doing it. Finally, how many of ALL of us go into work everyday and hop on a computer that has a mouse from the early 2000’s connected to it? I’m guessing a lot. Why have the old crappy mouse with the obtrusive wire connected to it when there are so many sleek, wireless mouses out there? We found your replacement.
Gadgets 4 Guys had a chance to demo the Recon Folding Wireless Mouse. The mouse itself uses laser tracking which usually bodes well for responsiveness on a variety of surfaces (other technologies can struggle with that). The thing we really loved about the Recon mouse was how thin it was when not in use (like 9mm thin). One of the problems with folding mouses (mice?) is that when you forget to unfold them and turn them off the battery stays on and drains. Recon actually has a 3 minute timer that will enter the mouse into sleep mode if you haven’t touched it which should prevent battery burn. There are no actually batteries to plug into Recon as it is powered off of a li-ion battery and will get 3 months of use off of one charge. Make sure to take advantage of the touch scroll wheel when going through a lot of reading content too. Check out our hands on video review to get even more details.
