- Bluetake BT500 Mouse & BT009X USB Adapter


If you're thinking of going bluetooth with your next mouse purchase, JSI Hardware take a look at a nice little package by Bluetake which includes the BT500 mouse, and BT009X USB adapter. Pity the mouse isn't a wee bit larger, otherwise it looks to be a great alternative to the several other bluetooth mice on the market.


Both the BT500 mouse and BT009X USB adapter arrive packaged together in a presentation box, the first thing I noticed was the size of the BT500 mouse, it measures a tiny 85.2mm x 50mm x 32.6 mm and weighs only 64g.


It is an optical mouse with 3 buttons and a scroll wheel. The scroll wheel lights up blue when you are connecting the BT500 to the Bluetooth adapter.
