I'm looking for a new mouse to work with on my laptop. I want it to be wireless, but I'm still deciding between Radio-frequency or Bluetooth. It needs to be precise since I often work with game engines.
While researching, I started questioning the effects each would have on my laptop's battery.
- Does a radio-frequency mouse affect in any way the battery life (at least more than a wired mouse)?
- Would a bluetooth mouse drain it faster than a radio-frequency mouse?
- Does bluetooth version (2.1, 3.0, 4.0) make a difference on laptop battery usage?
Regarding precision and response time, is there a difference between the two?
Finally, any recommendations are also welcome. I prefer bluetooth just because there's no need for an USB port. Also, it needs to be very cheap, around a maximum of 25€.
