The global destruction caused by the production of batteries is becoming quite bad. While gold mining can be somewhat as bad, the consequences of batteries over time is significantly worse. 40$ for a mouse isn't a high price for what you are getting out of it and the money you save by not having to use batteries. Your argument against this seems to be that you are too lazy to charge it every day so you dismiss it as being expensive, low quality, and unreliable which i find ridiculous.
So put a rechargeable battery in the mouse and don't worry about it.
Why would I want to recharge a mouse *every* single day, when only have to recharge my battery powered mouse every 2 months?
