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.
Small and smart
Teeny tiny, wireless, inexpensive, and from a respected brand. What more could you ask for? This is a solid mouse, with Logitech's respected build quality, excellent buttons and scroll wheel, and ergonomic design. Just don't lose that wireless dongle!
Are you looking for a splash of color and fun in your tiny mouse? Look no further than this optical mouse from Verbatim, which is available in a range of colors. A retractable cord also attaches it, so you don't need any batteries. And there's no wireless dongle to lose.
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!
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.
Cheap and cheerful
Cheap and cheerful, wireless, and, most importantly, really small! It's also available in black and pink and even in a two-pack if you need more than one. It uses a 2.4GHz wireless connection and has near silent buttons, which make it perfect to use in a home office environment.
The Viper Mini is one of the smallest, lightest gaming mice you'll find anywhere. It's perfect for right and left-handers, has programmable buttons, excellent accuracy and performance, and a very attractive price. You also get a little lighting to make it stand out!
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 (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab), 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.
