There was a time when wireless mice were plagued with lag and connectivity issues, but it's no longer the case. Wireless mice have seen so much innovation that now they trade blows with their wired counterparts and without being bound by those pesky wires.

Note that these have been curated based on their availability on Amazon as well as their listed features.
Logitech is one of the most prominent PC peripheral manufacturers in the world, and the Logitech Pebble M350 should illustrate why.

It has everything that you can see in almost every wireless mouse present in the market.
