Got this mouse as a set in 2003
Four years ago I changes batteries (for the first time) to GP 2100mA NiMH since original batteries were done (will not hold charge anymore)
A year ago I changes batteries (for the second time) as the GP’s will not hold charge as well.
I got a new set of GP 2100mA NiMH AA batteries.
A month ago I start getting “Red LED” – low battery from the mouse very often :
1. I would get a “Low Batt.” Alert – LED blinks red
2. I put the mouse in the cradle – Green LED will blink (like the battery is begin charged)
3. I let it charge for the night
4. When I get back – the Green LED will no longer blink, but instead it is OFF.
5. I use the mouse for a couple of hours – then I get red LED blinking – Low Battery.
If I charge the batteries using wall-charger the mouse will work for 3-4 days before “Low Batt.” Warning
I also checked cradle output’s using a DVM :
It outputs ~5v and 1A from its charging posts.
Any ideas how can this be fixed?

I would suggest to clean the contacts on the charger using q-tips dipped in alcohol. Just dipped not soaked in order not to short-circuit.

Im not sure you got my message correct -
the charging post. both on the charger side and on the mouse are perfectly clean.
it just wonr charge the batteries.
this is so frustrating as i relly like this mouse (which wasnt so cheap at the time) and i wasnt expecting it to behave in that manner.

I have the same problem. This has been going on for quite a while. Replaced rechargeable batteries. Tried NiCad, NiMH. Cleaned contacts, ... The only work-around is to push the reset button on the mouse and then it will charge. I wonder if the charging circuit works correctly, as the batteries get pretty hot when they are being charged. Surely Logitech must have an explanation ?

Hello Bert1 ,
If the batteries are getting hot while charging the best thing to do is contact customer care for your region .
