These are the best wireless mice for Chromebooks
While your Chromebook’s trackpad works well enough for most situations, there are some tasks for which a wireless mouse is better. Whether you need a wireless mouse to scroll through long documents faster, or want to perform fine manipulations, there’s a great wireless mouse out there with your name on it. Here are a few of our favorites.
Logitech MX Anywhere 2S
This compact Bluetooth-capable mouse can be used on almost any surface (even glass) and has great battery life. While custom button functions aren’t available for Chrome, you can pair it with up to three devices at once and switch seamlessly between.
Built for smaller hands
Autley Wireless Ergonomic Mouse
For some of us, a mouse can be too big to comfortably use — especially when it’s an ergonomically designed model. This mouse from Autley has all the features you want like adjustable DPI and full compatibility with any operating system and is sized specifically to fit smaller hands.
Logitech M535 Compact Bluetooth Mouse
This is a compact Bluetooth mouse without any compromises. It’s comfortable thanks to the ergonomic design and rubber grips, and the compact design makes it easy to slip into a laptop bag or backpack. Best of all, it has an accurate optical sensor to keep everything nice and tight.
Long life, low price
Logitech Wireless Mouse M510
If you want a wireless mouse that is comfortable to hold, comes in different colors, and has a long battery life — users report about one year on average — then check the Logitech M510. Your wallet will be as happy as you are!
Keep Rollin’ Rollin’ Rollin’
Logitech M570 Wireless Trackball Mouse
A trackball offers precision that you’ll never get through hand and wrist movement but can also be something you don’t want to use all of the time. The answer is this combo mouse and trackball from Logitech that gives the best of both worlds along with super-long battery life.
A Basic Mouse
Amazon Basics Wireless Mouse
Sometimes all you want or need are the basics. This three button mouse uses a 2.4GHz USB receiver and a one year warranty and does exactly what it’s supposed to do. And does it well for just $10.
Logitech M720 Triathlon
Start with a precision laser for accurate tracking, toss in a newly sculpted body, big free-spinning wheel, and redesigned thumb button, and you have this Logitech option. Keep the Bluetooth or USB receiver options and multi-device pairing from the original and see why we love the M720 Triathlon.
King of the Hill
Logitech MX Master 2S
Some love it because of the shape, others because of its ability to track anywhere (even frosted glass) or because it’s rechargeable. But almost everyone (sorry lefties) agrees it’s one of the best wireless mice you can buy for any computer including your Chromebook.
Anker 2.4G Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Mouse
The “handshake” position when using a mouse for long periods of time means less strain on your wrist and forearm and it’s well worth giving a vertical mouse a try. Anker makes that easy with its offering; you get premium product and a cheap price tag along with a wrist that isn’t sore at the end of the day.
Keep a mouse nearby
Your Chromebook’s trackpad probably gets plenty of use — I know mine does. but sometimes you really can benefit from using a mouse. Editing pictures or playing games come to mind, as do long days filled with spreadsheets. Keeping a mouse handy can be a lifesaver sometimes.
With so many Logitech products on the list its no wonder the company sells so many computer peripherals — but it also happens to make most of our favorite wireless mice. My personal favorites are the MX Anywhere 2S to keep in my laptop bag (it seriously works anywhere) and the M720 Triathlon to use around the house.
Ergonomic mice are a big hit, too, and once you get used to the design you’ll find that your wrist and forearm feel better after a long day. It’s great seeing products that won’t break the bank like Anker’s Vertical Mouse and a mouse that’s ergonomic and designed for smaller hands from Autley means everyone can have better “wrist health”. No matter what your needs might be, there’s a wireless mouse you can use!
