Can Microsoft Arc mouse use lithium batteries?

The Microsoft instruction list only alkaline, carbon batteries but do not list lithium. A friend mentioned that he read somewhere that lithiums are not good for mice. Are lithiums safe for Arc mice?

No in fact over time you will start to notice your mouse will act like it has a mind of its own (this is caused by corosion from the batteries) so its only safe if you use them for a month at MOST)

Just purchased lithium batteries and indicator showing low battery


Are you sure you bought lithium cells? In your camera you should use Ni-MH batteries. The SNB-2512 could be very expensive, but normal Ni-MH from any brand should work fine.

Depending of what you use, always be sure all batteries are the same, charged and suited for your camera. Most of the time even new Ni-CD rechargeable batteries won't work, because the voltage is low, according to NiMH or alkaline batteries.
Always charge NiMH batteries before using them for the first time, or if they have not been used for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Always charge sets of batteries (2 or 4) together.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera.

I have this camera and it has new batters but it wont turn on.... WHAT DO I DO


The CRV3 lithium battery, is non rechargable. It must be lithium, because lithium has a higher voltage than other batteries.
Not sure if you can put the batteries the wrong way around in the camera but be sure you did put them in correct. Check if the contacts in the camera are clean and shiny.

Gigaware wireless mouse instructions


The first thing to realize is that most wireless keyboards and mice will eat regular alkaline batteries for lunch. This is where most of my clients have gone wrong. It seems they are replacing batteries in a device around every month or even more often. For an office full of wireless devices, this can add up very quickly. Plus it also seems that certain devices act inconsistently with regular alkaline batteries. If you need to purchase a non-rechargeable battery for your wireless devices, you should purchase the "advanced" or "performance" type of batteries such as the Energizer Lithium or Duracell Quantum brands. For what it's worth, the Apple devices usually come with Energizer Lithium brand batteries. However, high performance batteries are more expensive than alkaline batteries and their cost will add up over time. So I don't recommend buying these batteries except in a pinch.
What I really recommend are a particular type of rechargeable battery called low-discharge Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH). I believe many people stay away from rechargeable batteries because of misconceptions based upon past generations of rechargeable batteries. Many people perceive rechargeable batteries as expensive and prone to failure. But the worst stigma associated with rechargeable batteries are that they don't hold their charge and never seem to be ready when they are needed. The reality is that today's new generation of low-discharge NiHM rechargeable batteries have resolved many of the issues that previous batteries suffered from. Low-discharge NiMH batteries hold their power on the order of months or years after charging. Unlike previous iterations of rechargeable batteries that lost their charge quickly, you can charge these batteries any time and they will be ready for use when you need them.

I have a sidewinder mouse with a lithium battery and it died can I use any battery or do I need a certain one??


Read the label of the lithium batteries you are currently using. If the voltage rating is 1.5V then you can use stardard alkaline batteries. But if the voltage is 3V or 3.6V then you can only use lithium batteries.

Hi I have just put brand new batteries in my canon powershot A560 and having taken approx 4 or 5 photos it is now telling me that my batteries need changing. The low battery symbol is also on alot of the...


Make sure that you use the correct type of batteries some cameras prefer Alkaline or Zinc Carbon both at v1.5 some only can take 3 rechargeable Nickel Cadmium (Nicad) Cells at 1.3V (3x1.5v= 3.9V) or one Lithium Ion at 3.6V

Be careful if you put a 1.3V NiCad Rechargeable in a camera that was designed for 1.5 Alkaline it can damage the camera and you may experience similar problems to that you have now.

Always check that you are using the recommended batteries, this is why most manufactures supply there own Lithium Ion 3.6V rechargeable K type cells to avoid this type of problem.
