If you are like me and use your Xiaomi Mi Pad – or some other tablet – as your main laptop on the go, having the right accessories is a must. One of them is a bluetooth mouse. For things like highlighting text, drag and drop, or even just scrolling, nothing works better than a mouse. In this buyer’s guide I’ll show you the very very bluetooth mouse you can pair with your Xiaomi or other tablets to turn it one step closer to a real laptop.

A Bluetooth mouse like the Logitech is all about simplicity – being totally wireless. Tablets don’t often don’t have traditional USB ports, making Logitech a good choice for compatibility with its bluetooth connectivity.

There are 6 buttons on the mouse – right- and left click, scroll click, a Windows button and scroll wheel left- and right click. The mouse is a favorite with Xiaomi tablets and is an innovative, ambidextrous mouse with a slim, ergonomic design. The mouse, with high definition optical sensor, has a 12-months-capacity battery pack as well as a wireless adapter that connects to tablets and computers without interference.

It can also be configured as a 2-buttoned left- or right-handed mouse, with the default being a single button. It makes use of laser tracking for better pointer accuracy.

Lightweight, bendable and super slim, unlike the more traditional bulkier mouse, the Microsoft arc wireless mouse is an ideal choice when you’re on the go. You can simply snap it flat to fit inside any bag you have. The mouse can scroll backwards and forwards and it is compatible with Windows computers, connecting by means of Bluetooth 4.0. The front section works like a touch-pad, allowing for swiping gestures. Right and left buttons are used for scrolling functions.
