Rechargable Wireless Mouse Answered

I had this idea a while back and have yet to see one made. Unfortunately I don't have the means to try it myself.

What I thought was a wireless mouse which would be recharged with its own dongle. When the dongle is plugged into the computer the batteries inside would be charged up then when it is put into the mouse for storage those batteries would charge up the mouse.

I don't really know a whole lot about electronics - despite perusing instructables now and then ;) - so I don't know if this is even possible. But I don't see why it couldn't be done, or why it hasn't been done yet {unless I just haven't found it}.

Peace to you and yours,
Matthew "Dra'Gon" Stohler

Look at products like PowerMat or similar inductive power coil mats that inductively charge a corresponding power pack for cell phones and mp3 players. They work by just placing the unit on the mat and it charges without physical wire connection.

Yah, I've seen those. It's just that something like my idea would be interesting to have. No batteries to replace, no need for anything extra to carry around, and your mouse would get recharged on the go.
