AsiaPower PowerClick 198 Wireless Mouse
  

AsiaPower PowerClick 198 is a handy wireless mouse that works through USB Bluetooth dongle. The mouse offers easy connectivity and common features. It runs on 2.4 GHz bandwidth that tries to maintain a good mouse control from long range. The cost of this mouse is around Rs.499. The design mostly has plastic body. It is light in weight also. The mouse comes in black and red color combination that makes it a bit attractive in looks. It can be a comfortable mouse for laptops, net books, pc, etc. Due to portable size you can also carry it with you. It goes to sleep mode automatically when you are not using the mouse. And to switch it on back you just have to press right click or left click. PowerClick 198 has a very traditional look. We had seen quite stylish wireless mouse at the same price range that is why we do not find it effective in terms of looks. Usage is easy here. Just connect the Bluetooth dongle to your pc and let it run. It runs on a AA size battery. A single battery is enough to give long usage. Sleek ergonomic design adds maximum comfort in using. But I found the buttons a bit hard to press when you use it for the first time. Eventually it gets smoother on its own as you keep on using it. It is a good choice for day to day usage. Due to wireless connectivity, the mouse can also be used from a long distance. Ideal for HTPC.

Features:
  • Sleek ergonomic design
  • Accurate Optical Orientation technology
  • Optical technology for precise tracking
  • Comfortable grip for long term use
  • 1200 DPI optical wireless mouse
  • Plug and play with nano receiver mouse, no driver required
