Verdict

We washed the mouse with water to test its claim, and it worked perfectly later. One thing is for sure, if you’re the type who eats at a computer, and want to wash your mouse and hands together later, there really isn’t anything else available!

Belkin Washable Mouse detailed review


That’s Right! Washable!

Belkin’s other product we received this issue was also one of the most unique ones. This mouse is, as the name gives away, is very washable. In size, it’s the size of most laptop mice and shaped a little differently.

 

The body has no crevices for water to seep into the mouse itself. The biggest problem with making a mouse waterproof has to be the scroll wheel region. It has been replaced with a touch sensitive pad. The pad works fairly well and is probably nicer for people who don’t like the gritty feel of most mouse scroll wheels. The same touch sensitive strip allows you to do side scrolling as well. There is no middle click though. The sensor region also appears to be sealed off to prevent any water from getting inside.

 

The mouse buttons are hidden away under a membrane of rubber too. The buttons are placed towards the center of the mouse which means those used to clicking at the extreme end of the mouse will have to readjust.

 

The performance of the mouse in general is OK. This is a 1200 dpi mouse, but it somehow doesn’t feel as smooth as some of the other mice. This isn’t the best mouse for gaming, but it will do just fine for general desktop use.

 

The cable isn’t as long as some other desktop mice, but then this is a mouse geared towards laptop users. Another great thing about the mouse is the circular strip under it, which lets it slide about with little resistance.
