Visually appealing, inexpensive, rechargeable, Wireless Optical Mouse.

When selecting the proper gaming mouse, one typically trials several varieties before selecting “the one.” When a split-second, fraction-of-a-second difference means the difference between a “W” or an “L,” it makes sense that a proper mouse is a key piece of needed tech.
