I really like using these while mowing and doing outdoor work. It's nice not having a cord dangling that gets caught all the time rips your ears out.

I have some lg tones that I use for the same thing. They are super uncomfortable in my tiny ears though

Got this over the weekend. They have been connecting perfectly, so no complaints for $10. The audio would be horrible for songs, but since I only listen to podcast I don't have a problem with them. The sounds is plenty loud enough to drown out the power.

I'm happy with the battery life on these and my old pair. I've never had them die on me while mowing or walking, but I also remember to charge them after a few uses.

They aren't the best quality, but these batteries are great for the price. We have this brand in a lot of kids toys

Yes...I know rechargeable are the best for the environment and I'm sorry for buying these.

I bought this mouse for work when I started the new job. I have a lot of conference room meetings and I like taking my mouse with me.

It's fancier than I need with all of the buttons, but I like the shape.

Yeah but this one is more expensive and looks less comfortable

A lot of people like wired actually, but having wireless is super convenient when you're moving about the office during the day.

$19.99?!?! Too rich for my blood.

I do have a 10 year old wireless Logitech KB/M for home though

I bought this identical switch from Amazon a few weeks ago for a home project I'm working on. I think I paid $40

How is reputation calculated? Corey's is way higher than Wilkins even though their post stats are similar.

I feel like we looked this up when we worked at NW. Leaving it open has a timeout period, I think you need to be actively clicking/scrolling for it to count?

Great ratio!

I think it's when people "like" your posts and leave you a little comment. You can see it in your profile

I lose? Also, how are some of you averaging over 30 mins? Maybe this doesn't count app usage?

All I did was talk about my experience with a product that the post was about.
