The Best Wireless Mouse - Spring 2024 Mice Reviews

Updated May 30, 2024 at 11:46 am
Best Wireless Mouse

If you've got lots of things on your desk or like to use your mouse on the go, having a cable attached to your mouse can be troublesome. Wireless mice didn't perform nearly as well as wired mice in the past, and they typically had poor battery life. These days, many wireless mice perform just as well as wired mice. Depending on how often you use your mouse, some can last for months without recharging. Lately, esports pros rely on wireless options, even during competition play. Whether you're looking for an everyday browsing option, something to toss into your bag when you travel, or a trusty companion to help you make it onto the top of the leaderboards, a good wireless mouse can help you interact more naturally with your computer and with more freedom of movement.

We've tested over 320 mice, and below, you'll find our picks for the best wireless mouse and best Bluetooth mouse for most people. For other recommendations, see our picks for the best mouse, the best mouse for gaming, and the best wireless gaming mouse.

  1. Best Wireless Mouse

    The Logitech MX Master 3S is the best wireless mouse we've tested. It's available in three colors to match your setup, and the comfortable right-handed design has a thumb rest with a hidden button for performing gesture commands. You can connect this mouse via Bluetooth or its included USB receiver, and it pairs with up to three devices simultaneously. This mouse also has an impressive advertised battery life of up to 70 days between recharges. Among its most noteworthy features are two dedicated scroll wheels. The wheel on the side handles horizontal scrolling, while the wheel on top has two different modes: a more precise notched mode and a free-scrolling mode for quickly scrolling through content.

    This new version has much quieter click buttons than previous models in this series, and the sensor has a wider range of sensitivity levels. It's particularly helpful if you use a high-resolution 4k display because their higher pixel densities require higher sensitivity for producing smooth mouse movements at a comfortable speed. This mouse uses Logitech's newest BOLT receiver rather than the older Unifying receiver. Logitech indicates that this newer receiver has improved security protocols and performs better in congested wireless spaces. However, this new receiver is backward compatible with some but not all Logitech devices, so you may still need to plug in both receivers if you're also using an older Logitech keyboard, for instance.

  2. Best Mid-Range Wireless Mouse

    For a mid-range wireless option, check out the Logitech MX Master 2S. We recommend this mouse if you're looking for a more affordable pick or don't necessarily need all the newest features on the Logitech MX Master 3S. Logitech has discontinued this model in North American markets, but it's still available in stock from some online retailers. That said, its price varies and is at its best value when it's around the $60 mark. Also, some retailers may list this mouse's 2017 and 2023 models, with the 2023 model being called the Bluetooth Edition. The only difference appears to be that the 2.4GHz USB Unifying receiver isn't included, so the mouse is intended for use with a Bluetooth connection.

    Overall, the MX Master 2S has some minor visual differences compared to the newer MX Master 3S, and its side buttons and side-mounted scroll wheel are in a different spot and don't stick out as far. It also has louder click buttons and uses an older micro-USB cable for charging rather than the USB-C cable with newer models. Otherwise, all the same features that have made this lineup so popular are here, including its rock-solid build quality, classic ergonomic shape, dual scroll wheels, and multi-device pairing with up to three devices simultaneously. This mouse also has an advertised 70 days of battery life, which is on par with the newest versions in the series. It's a great option if you're interested in a more affordable entry point into this popular lineup to see what everyone has been talking about.

  3. Best Budget Wireless Mouse

    More premium options in Logitech's productivity-minded MX series get lots of attention, but if you're looking to spend a little less, we recommend the Logitech M720 Triathlon, which quietly offers many of the same features at a more affordable price point. This mouse has an ergonomic, right-handed shape and is well-suited for most hand sizes. It has three easy-to-reach side buttons and an integrated gesture button hidden in the thumb rest. Like our top pick, the Logitech MX Master 3S, you can connect this mouse with its USB receiver or via Bluetooth and pair it with up to three devices simultaneously.

    Its scroll wheel has left and right inputs, and you can toggle between a controlled, notched scrolling mode and a much faster free-scrolling mode for easier navigation of long spreadsheets. However, unlike the more expensive MX Master series mice, it doesn't feel as premium overall and lacks a second thumb scroll wheel. Depending on where you're shopping for your mouse, you may see the similar-looking Logitech Precision Pro, which is the same mouse as the M720 Triathlon but has a darker-colored bottom plate. The Precision Pro was previously a Costco exclusive but has recently been on sale from other retailers and can be less expensive than the more common M720 Triathlon-branded variant.

  4. Best Wireless Mouse For Gaming

    If you're looking for the best wireless option for gaming, look no further than the Razer Viper V3 Pro. It's the latest addition to Razer's popular Viper series of symmetrically shaped gaming mice. It features a new, more subdued design and a familiar shape that's ideal for a wide variety of hand sizes and grip types. It's now even lighter and sports Razer's updated Focus Pro 35K sensor, one of the most accurate and consistent sensors we've ever tested. It supports a maximum wireless polling rate of 8000Hz out of the box and delivers some of the lowest click and sensor latency figures available, providing an incredibly responsive gaming experience.

    If you don't mind missing out on absolutely bleeding-edge performance, Razer's previous generation Viper V2 Pro is still an outstanding choice, and it's currently available for cheaper than ever. Lastly, we couldn't forgive ourselves for not mentioning the Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro as a possible alternative. It delivers outstanding raw performance similar to our top pick, but it's designed exclusively for right-handed users and is a better option for larger-sized hands, especially if you prefer using a palm grip.

  5. Best Budget Wireless Mouse For Gaming

    If you're looking for a gaming mouse and don't want to break the bank, check out the Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED. It's a gaming mouse on paper, but it's also one of the best general-use wireless mice we've tested at this price point. While it has impressive sensor performance and click latency, you don't need to be a gamer to appreciate what this mouse offers. Its build quality is great and resembles that of more premium-priced Logitech options. It also has a subdued look that blends seamlessly in professional settings or home desktops and comes in several colors to match your current decor or add flair. Additionally, it features dedicated side buttons that can be used for quicker back and forward navigation.

    This mouse has a somewhat egg-like shape that's comfortable for nearly all hand sizes, so it's easy to slip into laptop bags or pockets for use on the go. It uses Logitech's LIGHTSPEED USB receiver to connect wirelessly and has an advertised battery life of over 250 hours using a single AA battery. There's also a small slot to store the USB receiver inside the mouse, so you don't lose it in transit. It's heavier than many recent gaming-oriented releases, but this is only an issue for gamers who exclusively play fast-paced, reaction-based games. Altogether, given its versatility and unmatched price to performance, this mouse remains the best all-around wireless option on the market.

  6. Best Wireless Mouse For Travel

    If you're looking specifically for a travel option, we recommend the Razer Pro Click Mini. This mouse is a more portable version of the successful Razer Pro Click, Razer's first productivity-focused mouse. It's much more compact than the original and now sports a symmetrical shape, making it a more viable choice if you're left-handed. It feels sturdy and packs many features, including multi-device pairing with up to four devices simultaneously and quieter buttons. The scroll wheel also has left and right tilt inputs, and you can toggle between a precise scrolling mode or a faster free-scrolling mode, a much-loved productivity feature absent on the larger version. You can power this mouse with one or two AA batteries, and Razer advertises a maximum battery life of 700 hours. It also has a compartment for storing the USB receiver, so you don't accidentally lose it in transit.

    If you'd prefer a much simpler alternative, we recommend the Logitech Pebble Mouse 2 M350s. It doesn't approach the same level of performance or have the same wealth of features, but it's much more affordable and has a very slim and portable shape.

Notable Mentions

  • Keychron M6: The Keychron M6 is a great mid-range alternative if you want to balance productivity features and gaming performance. It feels cheaper than the MX Master series mice at the top of our list, but it has a similar shape and feature set, including a secondary thumb scroll wheel. It's also significantly more lightweight and boasts more impressive gaming performance. However, it doesn't quite rival the raw performance of our primary gaming recommendations, the Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED and the Razer Viper V3 Pro. See our review
  • Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT 2: The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT 2 is a close competitor to the Razer Viper V3 Pro. Its symmetrical shape is a bit more accommodating to a wider range of hand sizes and grip types. However, it has a lower maximum polling rate of 4000Hz, and its overall sensor performance doesn't match the Razer mouse's. It also doesn't feel as sturdy, and its stock mouse feet don't glide as smoothly. See our review
  • Logitech MX Anywhere 3S: The Logitech MX Anywhere 3S is a compact wireless model with a lot in common with the Razer Pro Click Mini for about the same price, but rather than using AA batteries, it recharges with a USB cable. That said, it doesn't offer the same level of performance overall, and its scroll wheel lacks left and right tilt functions. See our review

All Reviews

Our recommendations above are what we think are currently the best Bluetooth mouse and wireless mouse 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.
