Mouse: 2.4G v Bluetooth

Perfect, so if you're looking to get the most battery life, I would use the Bluetooth connection for daily use.  You should get around the same hours of usage mentioned above.  If you have any other questions, let me know and I can help you out.

I recently got a new wireless mouse from corsair. It has an option for 2.4G as well as Bluetooth. I was wondering which would offer the best battery life for the mouse, as I mostly play single player games and therefore would prefer battery life over the best latency. I tried using the ever-trusty Google, but did not find much that would help.

If anyone knows more about this, I would appreciate learning a thing or two about the differences.

Thanks.

2.4g is best option in all ways (from my understanding), but you can then use bluetooth for things that dont supprt the 2.4g dongle (i mean then w/ bluetooth, you can use a mouse on your phone for example).

This entirely depends on Corsair's implementation of RF transmission.  The difference should be fairly negligible and the best way to know is to test it yourself.

Bluetooth is a 2.4GHz standard.  It was created so that devices would be easily compatible with each other.  However, companies can implement their own method if they want to or need to.


I like dark themes and keyboards.

Which Corsair wireless mouse did you purchase?  For example there is a notable difference on the Harpoon Wireless in battery life when using Bluetooth vs 2.4ghz, up to 60hrs vs 30hrs respectively.
