This isn't a laser, flashlight, or other product specifically designed to produce light, but since it uses an LED and that lamp is rather critical to its functionality, I figured "what the H-E-Double-Bendy-Straws" - I'd probably get eternal darnation if I failed to add it to this website because of that LED in it anyway.

This is a cordless three-button computer mouse that uses an optical tracking mechanism rather than a ball. The third (center) button also incorporates a scroll wheel, eliminating the need to mouse over and "click & drag" on the scroll bar at the far right of the document or web page you're on in order to get that page to scroll.

This mouse is actually quite easy to use.

Charge the mouse's internal batteries first, and THEN you can go waste that phoney "policeman" in Wolfenstein 3D.

Plug the cord on the receiver base into any free USB port on your desktop or laptop computer. The computer should almost immediately "sense" its presence and automatically install the correct driver.

At this point, the mouse should now be working.

To charge the batteries in this mouse, first be certain that you plug the cord on the receiver base into any free USB port on your desktop or laptop computer.

Place the mouse in the cradle; orienting it so that the front edge of the mouse points somewhat up. A red LED on the receiver base should now come on. If the red light is not on, "jiggle" the mouse in the cradle a bit until it does come on.

Unable to measure current usage due to how the product was constructed.

The Cordless Rechargeable Optical Mouse is designed to be a computer peripheral, not a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, and abused; so I won't try to drown it in the toliet tank, bash it against a steel rod or against the concrete floor of a front porch, let my mother's big dog's ghost or my sister's kitty cats spring a leak (uranate) on it, run over it with a 450lb Celebrity motorised wheelchair, stomp on it, use a medium or large ball peen hammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoņata, drop it down the top of Mt. Erupto (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piņata Central {aka. "Party Central"}), with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; the cannoņata (also located at Piņata Central) is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piņata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or perform other indecencies on it that a flashlight might have to have performed on it. So this section of the web page will be ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

In fact, that photograph and three spectrographic analyses below may very well be it.

This light is not designed to be seen, so this photograph really wasn't absolutely, positively, 100% necessary.

Product was purchased sometime in 2007.

Product was made in China.
A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.
