    No exact time really, depends on how good the batteries are. They last long enough that it's not a pain in the ass though.

    Shall we make a poll: Energizer vs. Duracell? :p ;)

    Actually I wondered the same thing the other day. I ended up getting a "corded optical" instead. I think that was one of the best upgrades I've made. Optical rules!

    are cordless ones just as fast as corded ones for playing online games?

    fitfella29, if you set everything up right, the only difference between playing online with a cordless mouse, and a corded one, is that you won't have to keep pulling the cord after it caught on the edge of the desk and got you killed.

    NOTE: If you are prone to fits of rage during gameplay, and take it out on your computer peripheral's and HID's, a cordless mouse will cure this, as you will find that throwing the cordless mouse across the room is not worth the time it takes to find it, or the amount of worrying you will do once you calm down and realize you might have broken it.

    fitfella, you can set a corded mouse to refresh at 3000 Hz, but a cordles is limited by the transmission frequency, but it is usually pretty good. Not much difference
