I want a wireless mouse to use with my MacBook Pro 2018.
Requirements:

  • Internal battery.
  • Rechargeable by USB-C.
  • Usable while charging.
  • Bluetooth.
  • Compatible with current macOS.
  • Fits large hand.
  • Allows at least left-click, right-click, vertical scrolling.
  • Real mouse, not a touchpad. Trackpoint would be wonderful if integrated in a keyboard that fits this question.

Any price is fine.

Non-solutions:

  • Apple's Magic Mouse is not a solution because it uses a Lightning cable, rather than USB-C.
  • The AE WISH ANEWISH mouse is not a solution because it uses a micro-USB cable, rather than USB-C.

QA:

  • Why not removable batteries? Because they are bothersome, and I work in places where batteries are not readily available.
  • Why USB-C? Because USB-C is the only cable I use. I don't want another cable laying around just for this. All of my devices are Android so USB-C is enough to charge everything.
  • Why Bluetooth? Because dongles are unaesthetic and easily lost.

  • With the low margins on mice and the extra 1-2$ in chips you need to use USB-C it will be a hard find. Although recently EU has decided to pass a law standarizing the (phone?) charging port as USB-C so you might have better luck sometime in H2 next year. – Jan Dorniak Dec 13 '20 at 11:41

I recommend Logitech's MX Master 3.

enter image description here

  • Internal battery, with USB-C (and fast charging!)
  • Bluetooth and USB dongle support
  • Cross-platform support; Bluetooth works on all systems with support for Bluetooth mice. Optional configuration software is supported on macOS and Windows.
  • Medium-large
  • 7 buttons, vertical and horizontal scroll wheels; vertical scroll wheel supports ratcheted and free-spinning scrolling
  • Real mouse ;)

It's quite expensive at an MSRP of $99.99, but both it and it's cousins have been very well received by critics, and frankly, given it's feature set and backing from Logitech, I consider it well-worth it since you mentioned that price isn't a big issue for you.

  • If I use Bluetooth then I do not need the USB dongle, right? – Nicolas Raoul Dec 21 '20 at 1:49
  • Yes, that’s correct. – JMY1000 Dec 22 '20 at 20:11
