You're traveling a lot, and you want a mouse for your bag, or you're now working from home, and you don't have a big office space. But even when space is at a premium, any mouse is better than relying on the trackpad all the time, right? We're here to help, and we have some super-small mice that are perfect for the lightweight laptop bag.

Fold flat: Microsoft Arc Touch

What's better for the ultimate space-saving mouse than one that folds completely flat? That's precisely what the Arc Touch does. Go wire-free and flat like a pancake. Fits in any pocket! It'll cost you $50, but there's no mouse quite like it!

Pocket size: Microsoft Wedge Touch

If you like a mouse that also looks like a wedge of cheese (get it, mouse, cheese), then you're in luck. The Wedge Touch is crazy small, fits in any pocket or bag, and has the bonus of being a great mouse. The shape looks unusual, but it's surprising how fast you'll adjust to it.

If we had to choose...

Getting a tiny mouse doesn't have to be hard, and if you're short on space or need something ultra-portable, then the Logitech Wireless Mini Mouse is an excellent choice. It's from a respected brand, is tiny, well made, and very affordable.

If you're looking for something more serious, perhaps for gaming, then the Razer Viper Mini is a perfect choice. It mimics much of the bigger, more expensive Viper's while keeping the size and weight down, and also the price.

And perhaps the ultimate space-saving mouse is Microsoft Arc Touch, an innovative solution that's not very big when in use, but compresses perfectly flat when you're done with it. There's nothing else like it.
