If you spend a little bit more on a slightly nicer mouse, they tend to last even longer.
The problem I had with my Razer Diamond back is that it's nice rubberised button coatings was wearing thin, and the silicone sides were yellowing.
Solution? Sugru of course!
I made two basic modifications to my mouse, the main one being to cover the main two mouse buttons with Sugru, custom moulded to my finger tips. The second, to replace the yellowed silicone down the side of my mouse.
When I mentioned what I was doing, The Ideanator pricked up his ears and took note, and in the time it took me to write up this instructable he had already added some modifications onto his mouse, and got some pictures. So you will see a few shots throughout of his project, and how he did his compared to mine.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
- A mouse that has seen better days, or
- A mouse that needs an ergonomic upgade
- A set of electronics screwdrivers, cross head is most likely
- Methylated Spirits, or Rubbing Alcohol (Nail Varnish also works)
- Cotton Wool, or some cloth
- Sugru, I used three packets (2 Blue for the sides, 1 Black for the buttons)
