Mini USB-C travel mouse
« on: May 16, 2018, 12:14:30 pm »
I've seen a few people mention a Targus mini mouse.  I wanted to avoid an adapter, and found a usb-c mini mouse.

The  Verbatim Usb-C™ Mini Optical Travel Mouse:  http://a.co/btZCFY4

Since there's no battery, pairing, or adapter to worry about, this works out really well. It can even slip into a pocket.

The only 'problem' I can see is that it is a 'wired' mouse!

Could you not use a Bluetooth mouse with to the existing internal interface, or would that not be reliable enough?

Actually, I picked this one because it is wired. Never have to be concerned about a battery or pairing issue.

Nice....

Here's my Targus wired mini-mouse (model PAUMO1U-BB) that I bought some years ago. Bought a nice small Macally USB-C to USB-A adapter for it.

It measures about 2-15/16" L x 1-3/8" W (75 x 35 mm).

Works great....mouse is on left side of Gemini as I'm left-handed.

Bluetooth mouse works well as well.
Actually what I'm really looking for is a Bluetooth trackball which could clip onto the side or back of the Gemini,  like the old Microsoft Ballpoint Mouse but suitably sized for the Gemini.
I had a Sharp netwalker which had a kind of "thumb pad" you could move your finger over and it would move the cursor, that also allowed fairly precise pointing with no moving parts.
