Bluetake included a quick install guide with the package. The process involves putting the batteries in the mouse, attaching the bluetooth adapter to your PC and then just pairing up the two.

On the bottom of the mouse are three buttons. The on/off switch, the connect button and the mouse cover release. To install the batteries, press down on the cover release and the top cover pops right off. With the two included AAA batteries installed, the mouse feels a bit heavier and easier to use in my opinion.

The next step would be to plug in the Bluetake bluetooth USB adapter into a USB2.0 port.

The Shuttle XPC runs Windows XP SP2, which immediately recognized the adapter. There's also the Bluesoleil application you can use to manage the device.

After pressing down on the connect button on the bottom of the mouse, it was picked up after a few seconds. There is no passkey needed, just click connect.

After about 30 minutes of use, I must say the mini mouse is not too bad. However, I would suggest using this mouse only for short periods of time. The minute size will give any large hand a workout. There are only two buttons, so the usage is a bit limited compared to today's larger optical or laser offerings.

If you have a laptop and need a small and portable mouse, this is it. Add to the fact that it's bluetooth wireless makes it that much sweeter. I hope in possible future revisions that Bluetake offers one with rechargable batteries.



Pros:

  • Easy to install
  • Small and portable
  • Sleek and clean design


Cons:

  • Non-rechargable batteries
  • Not recommended for prolonged use
  • Limited buttons
