What makes the Rapoo M100 silent mouse so special?

The M100 mouse, has the ability to connect up to 3 devices simultaneously, meaning that you can switch from one device to another by the press of one button. Of course, this feature will be useful for users who like using multiple computers and devices at the same device and want a quick change between them.

Of course, the click of the mouse is quiet. This means you can do your work without worrying that right or left clicking will disturb anyone who might be sleeping in your house. Unfortunately, the click of the scroll wheel has the traditional sound.

Finally, it can maintain a long battery life too. According to Rapoo, it can last for up to 9 months. However, this can definitely vary depending on your use. For instance, if you use your computer daily for long periods of time, then expect the battery to last way than 9 months. If you are using your computer once in a while, then the battery will certainly last longer. Be sure to turn off the mouse when you are no longer using it to extend its battery life. Please, keep in mind that the mouse is not rechargeable. It takes 1 AA battery which is included in the box.

All of these features, come at a great price of 9.98£ from Amazon, and 9.99£ from other retailers such as Argos and Currys.

What is the Rapoo silent mouse made of?

The M100 silent mouse is made of mainly plastic. The plastic which covers the buttons area, where you hold the mouse, is slightly rougher. Scratch marks can be permanent, hence avoid storing the mouse in storage areas with sharp objects.

Speaking of colours, the silent mouse comes to up to 6 different colours, black, white, red, blue, pink and Turquoise. Slight note the scroll wheel is black on the red and blue and white on the Turquoise edition.

How reliable is it?

The Rapoo silent mouse is very reliable. While testing this product, we came to the conclusion that you are able to do all of your daily tasks with ease. However, to get most of out of its functionality, make sure to have a mousepad below it as it uses an optical sensor to detect the surface beneath it. The sensor sensitivity is 1300 DPI.

How to set up the Rapoo M100 mouse? Quick Guide

  1. First put the battery in the mouse and turn the on/off switch on.

  2. Next, plug in the USB received to connect the mouse into one computer.
  3. Once the mouse is connected to your computer, press on the Bluetooth button once on the bottom of the mouse to switch to the 2nd Bluetooth channel and then press it again by holding it down for 3-4 seconds to activate Bluetooth connection.

  4. From your second computer, navigate to settings and find the Bluetooth connection settings. From there, connect to the mouse under the name of RAPOO BT3.0 Mouse.

  5. Then, after a few seconds, your mouse will be connected to the second device. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to connect your mouse to the 3rd device.
  6. Finally, you can switch from your 3 different devices by pressing on the Bluetooth button on the bottom of the mouse. Now connected on the 3rd device, press the button once to switch back to the first device, and once more to go back to the second device.
