Up for review today I’ve got a tiny little mouse from
Verbatim aptly named the Mini Travel Mouse. The mouse is small enough to fit in
the palm of your hand. The Travel Mouse is wireless and you can stow the
receiver right inside of the mouse itself. If you’re in the need of a very
small and portable mouse then this is what you want. This thing is probably the
smallest mouse I’ve ever seen.

A Better Look at Things
The Verbatim mouse comes in everyone’s favorite package style, the
sealed plastic clamshell.
Inside you’ll find the mouse, user manual, battery and the receiver.
The mouse I got for review is blue in color, but you can get it in red,
graphite or purple as well. The mouse has the two standard buttons and the
scroll wheel which is also a button itself. The top is smooth plastic while the
sides are a rubber texture plastic. The mouse is lightweight and very small and
seems well made.
On the bottom you’ll see the sensor, power switch, four Teflon feet and
a connect button.
The back of the mouse slides off to reveal the battery compartment; you
can also store the receiver in there.
Installation, Testing and Comparison
The Easy Riser is considered a small and portable mouse, but the Mini is
much smaller than even that.
The first thing you’ll notice is that the mouse is very small, almost
too small for my hands really. I can cup my hand over it and it will just
disappear, it’s that small.
Using it does take quite a bit to get accustomed to because of its small
It does work very well, I let it replace my main mouse for about a week
and after a time I found that it works very well. There were no skips or jumps;
the sensor seems to track very well.
It’s a portable mouse so it’s great for taking with you, and being it’s
so small it won’t add much weight to your daily carry.
Summary and Comments
The Verbatim Mini Travel mouse is small, very small, but it works well.
It’s great for taking with you when you want to travel light.
The tiny size of it might not be the best for people with large hands,
or men basically, but for women this might be a great mouse.
DragonSteelMods gives the Verbatim Wireless Mini Nano Travel Mouse a 4.5
out of 5 score.
