If you often travel or have a cluttered desk, a wired mouse can be a nuisance. In the past, wireless mice often had much worse performance compared to wired mice and needed new batteries every few days. These days, wireless mice perform very similarly to their wired counterparts. Some have surprisingly long battery life, and increasingly even pro gamers are relying on wireless options. Whether you're looking for any everyday browsing option, something to toss into your bag when you travel, or for a mouse to climb to the top of the ranked leaderboards with, a good wireless mouse can help you interact with your computer more comfortably and enjoyably.

We've tested over 240 mice, and below you'll find our picks of the best wireless mice available to buy. See our recommendations for the best mouse, the best mouse for gaming, and the best wireless mouse for gaming.

    The best wireless gaming mouse we've tested is the Razer Viper Ultimate. This lightweight and portable option feels very well-built and has a truly ambidextrous design with two side buttons on either side, so it's suitable for left- or right-handed users. Also, its low back and short body make it ideal for use with a fingertip grip for almost all hand sizes.

    It connects wirelessly with a USB receiver that plugs into your computer directly, or you can plug the receiver into the charging cradle that also acts as a signal extender. It has exceptional click latency for responsive-feeling gameplay and a very low lift-off distance, so you can easily lift and reposition the mouse without worrying about the sensor picking up part of your movement. Its high-quality feet provide a smooth gliding experience across desks and mousepads, and you can customize RGB settings or reprogram buttons using the customization software.

    Unfortunately, the left and right mouse buttons squeak slightly when pressed down all the way, and the companion software isn't available on macOS. That said, it does have onboard memory, so you can still use your settings on computers without the software installed. All in all, it's an excellent wireless gaming mouse and is among the best gaming mice we've tested.

    If you've got your heart set on an ultra-lightweight option, the best wireless gaming mouse we've tested is the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT. Weighing in at only 59g, it's among the lightest gaming mice available, but it has a solid plastic body that feels very well-built and sturdy. It's an excellent choice for FPS gamers, thanks to its superb click latency and consistent sensor.

    It has a comfortable, ambidextrous design suitable for both left- and right-handed users. Although it only has side buttons on its left side. You can use the software to reprogram all of its buttons and assign a G-Shift button for a second layer of commands, so you'll have the option to assign more controls if you need them. It also has high-quality feet to glide very smoothly across desks and mousepads.

    Unfortunately, it includes a micro-USB charging cable rather than a newer USB-C standard cable, which may be disappointing to some, especially given its premium price point. Also, small hands may struggle to reach the front side button comfortably using a fingertip grip, though it's well-suited for a palm or claw grip with any hand size. That said, it's an outstanding choice for a lightweight wireless gaming mouse.

    The best versatile wireless gaming mouse we've tested is the Razer Naga Pro. It's an excellent wireless choice for fans of different game genres since it has three swappable side panels with different button configurations. It feels well-built and is comfortable for medium to extra-large hands in a palm or claw grip.

    It connects wirelessly with a USB receiver, and its click latency is quite impressive. Depending on what genre of game you're playing, you can choose between a 2-, 6-, or 12-button layout, and all of the buttons are reprogrammable using Razer Synapse 3. You can also assign a Hypershift button to enable a second layer of commands for even more programmable inputs.

    Unfortunately, the sensor tends to undershoot the set CPI during quick mouse movements. Also, it's a bulky mouse, meaning if you have small hands, you might have a hard time reaching the more forward buttons. With that said, it's an excellent choice for users looking for a versatile, wireless option.

    The best wireless mouse for office use we've tested is the Logitech MX Master 3. It has an ergonomic shape for right-handed users with a high back and wide thumb rest for maximum comfort during long work sessions. The plastic body feels very solid and grippy thanks to a textured latex covering, and the overall shape is suitable for medium to extra-large size hands in a palm or claw grip.

    Its vertical scroll wheel has a free-scrolling mode you can set to engage automatically, making it easy to quickly browse through long documents or webpages. It also has a secondary, horizontal scroll wheel on the left side, perfect for quickly navigating spreadsheets. You can connect this mouse wirelessly either with its USB receiver or via Bluetooth, and you can pair it with up to three devices simultaneously. The Logitech Options companion software is compatible with Windows and macOS and offers button and profile customization for specific programs.

    Unfortunately, it's bulky and heavy, so it's not a very portable option. Also, if you have small hands, you may have difficulty reaching the thumb wheel and more forward side buttons. All said, it's an outstanding wireless mouse for office use, and it's one of the best ergonomic mice we've tested.

  5. Best Wireless Vertical Mouse For Office Use: Logitech MX Vertical

    Vertical

    If a vertical mouse is more your style for office use, the best wireless mouse that we've tested is the Logitech MX Vertical. Its design may take some time to get used to, but it's very ergonomic and comfortable once you do. Its vertical orientation is intended to prevent unnecessary strain by placing your hand, wrist, and forearm in a more natural position that's easier to hold for longer periods.

    You can connect this mouse with its USB receiver or via Bluetooth. You can also pair it wirelessly with up to three devices simultaneously. The customization software downloads once you plug in the included USB receiver, and it allows you to create profiles for individual programs and to adjust sensor settings and remap buttons. You need to create a Logitech account to save your settings, as there isn't any onboard memory.

    Unfortunately, the scroll wheel lacks a free-scrolling mode and doesn't tilt for horizontal scrolling, which may be disappointing, especially if you work with large documents and spreadsheets. It's also quite large and bulky, so small hands may have difficulty controlling the mouse and comfortably using all buttons. That said, it's a great choice for a wireless mouse if you're looking for an office-ready option designed to keep your body in a more natural position while you work.

    Standard

    The best wireless mouse for Mac we’ve tested is the Apple Magic Mouse 2. This highly portable option feels remarkably well-built thanks to its metal frame and acrylic body. Its compact design and low profile should fit in most laptop bags. All hand sizes will feel comfortable using it with a fingertip grip, but it's not suitable for palm or claw grip styles at all.

    It connects wirelessly via Bluetooth, so you won't have to worry about a USB receiver. The top of the mouse is a tactile touch surface, which you can use to perform gesture commands like horizontal and vertical scrolling. It has one large button that acts as both a left- and right-click depending on which side of the mouse you're touching when you press it. It also has an internal battery you can recharge using the included Lightning cable.

    Unfortunately, the Lightning charging port is on the bottom of the mouse, meaning that you can't use the mouse while it charges. Also, it lacks companion software, so you can't customize any settings. If you have an Apple device, it’s the best Bluetooth mouse we've tested and is among the best mice for MacBook Pro we’ve tested.

  7. Best Budget Wireless Mouse: Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED

    The best budget wireless mouse we've tested is the Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED. This inexpensive option has a solid, plastic body that feels similar to more premium Logitech offerings. Its ambidextrous design is well-suited for left and right-handed users with any hand size to use with a fingertip grip.

    It connects wirelessly with a USB receiver, and it has a storage compartment for the receiver under the palm rest panel. It uses one AA battery for power, and an indicator light alerts you when the battery needs replacing, so you won't be caught off-guard. You can use the companion software to remap buttons, customize settings, and assign a G-Shift button to enable a second layer of commands. Despite the budget price point, it features low click latency, so it's good for gaming use.

    Unfortunately, its fairly small size means that users with larger hands may find it uncomfortable. It's also surprisingly heavy and lacks free scrolling, so it might not be an ideal choice if you're looking for a lightweight office mouse. With that said, it's a high-performing option with a premium feel at a budget price.

Notable Mentions

  • Microsoft Arc Mouse: The Microsoft Arc Mouse is a unique alternative to the Apple Magic Mouse 2. Its foldable design makes it slimmer and more portable than the Magic Mouse 2, but it's only partially compatible with macOS meaning you can connect to your Mac via Bluetooth, though some inputs, like a three-finger click, won't be registered. See our review

  • Corsair HARPOON RGB Wireless: The Corsair HARPOON RGB Wireless is an amazing gaming mouse in the budget category. It's a great alternative to the Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED if you want a wider mouse with a thumb rest. However, its CPI is only adjustable by steps of 200, and it has a much higher lift-off distance than the G305. See our review

See our review
  • Finalmouse Starlight-12 Small: The Finalmouse Starlight-12 Small is an excellent alternative to the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT.

  • Razer Atheris: The Razer Atheris is a great Bluetooth-compatible alternative to the Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED. However, the Logitech feels more well-built, and it has a wider CPI range and a more consistent sensor than the Razer. See our review
  • Razer Orochi V2: The Razer Orochi V2 is a more portable alternative to the Razer Viper Ultimate. However, its battery isn't rechargeable, and its small size isn't suitable for as many hand sizes as the Viper Ultimate. See our review

Our recommendations above are what we think are currently the best wireless mice for most people. We factor in the price (a cheaper mouse wins over a pricier one if the difference isn't worth it), feedback from our visitors, and availability (no mice that are difficult to find or almost out of stock everywhere).

If you would like to do the work of choosing yourself, here is the list of all our wireless mice reviews. Be careful not to get too caught up in the details. While no mouse is perfect for every use, most mice are great enough to please almost everyone, and the differences are often not noticeable unless you really look for them.
