Satechi launches Aluminum M1 Bluetooth Wireless Mouse with USB-C
Satechi is a company that makes really great products that are also affordable. While many of its offerings are Apple-focused, they usually work fine with all things. For instance, it manufactures USB-C dongles that use colors to match MacBook laptops, but color aside, they are totally Windows compatible too.
Today, Satechi launches a new elegantly designed Bluetooth 4.0 mouse that is clearly aimed at macOS users, but it will of course work with both Windows and Linux too. Called "M1," it features a premium aluminum body and scroll wheel. Sadly, there are no side thumb buttons -- likely a deal-breaker for some.
M1 is rechargeable, meaning you don't have to keep buying batteries -- nice. Satechi claims it will last 45 days between charges. Best of all, the 1200 DPI mouse uses USB-C for charging, and yes, you can use the device while it charges. This is unlike Apple's poorly designed Magic Mouse 2 which has the charging port on the bottom.
"Satechi's efficient Aluminum M1 Bluetooth Wireless Mouse comes equipped with a convenient Type-C recharging port, eliminating the need for batteries and reducing downtime. Its wireless, Bluetooth capabilities allow anyone to quickly and easily pair to other Bluetooth-enabled devices from up to 32 feet away. The thoughtfully designed Aluminum M1 Bluetooth Wireless Mouse offers a curved, ergonomic design, making it ideal for both left- and right-hand users," says Satechi.
The company also says, "Advancing its technology, Satechi’s Aluminum M1 Bluetooth Wireless Mouse features optical sensors for precise tracking and fast scrolling for web browsing, work or data entry. With soft touch navigation buttons and aluminum scroll wheel, the M1 Mouse becomes a natural extension of any Bluetooth device."
The Satechi Aluminum M1 Bluetooth Wireless Mouse with USB-C is available immediately from Amazon here for just $29.99. There are four colors from which to choose -- silver, space gray, gold, and rose gold.
