How to Insert Batteries Into a Logitech Mouse

by C. Taylor

Logitech wireless mice require replaceable batteries to power the optical or laser sensor and establish a connection to the wireless receiver. Depending on the Logitech model, the mouse may require one or two “AA” batteries that are inserted through the top or bottom of the mouse. Examining the mouse will determine which type you have. Top-loading mice have a release button on the underside of the mouse, which is absent in bottom-loading mice. Bottom-loading mice have a separate battery hatch on the underside of the mouse, unlike the uniform bottom of a top-loading mouse.

Top-Loading Mouse

1

Press or slide the battery release button on the underside of the Logitech mouse.

2

Pull the top panel away from the mouse to remove it. The panel may pull straight up or slide back from the mouse.

3

Insert the negative (-) end of the battery into the slot and push until it locks in place. If the mouse requires two batteries, there will be two slots, side-by-side.

4

Replace the battery cover using the opposite direction as required for removal.

Bottom-Loading Mouse

1

Press gently on the rear battery hatch and slide it away from the mouse.

2

Insert the negative (-) end of the battery into the slot and push until it locks in place.

3

Replace the battery cover by sliding it forward across the battery compartment.
