When you choose computer mouse, you may have three options, wired mouse, wireless mouse 2.4G, and wireless mouse Bluetooth. Wired mouse is easy, but what is difference between the latter two wireless mice? And which one is better for you?

Firstly let’s get some knowledge about the wireless technology of 2.4GHz and Bluetooth.

2.4GHz wireless technology is a short-distance wireless transmission technology, which has the advantages of two-way transmission, strong anti-interference, long transmission distance (short-distance wireless connection technology) and low power consumption.

Bluetooth technology is a wireless transmission protocol based on 2.4G technology. It is a standard wireless communication protocol. It’s a “language” that lets multiple devices talk to each other wirelessly. Bluetooth protocols use the 2.4 GHz as the method to transmit or communicate that language between the devices. We can think about 2.4 GHz as the Latin alphabet, or the ABCs. The English language uses the ABCs, and English is a standard communication protocol that uses the Latin alphabet. In the same way the English language uses letters to convey the information, the Bluetooth “language” (or protocol) uses 2.4 GHz to communicate information. 

 

What is the difference between 2.4G wireless connection and Bluetooth wireless connection?

2.4G wireless connection

For competitive peripherals, limited by Bluetooth technology protocol, some functions cannot be done by Bluetooth, such as the rate of return of 1000Hz on the game mouse, so many peripheral companies will use their own 2.4GHz wireless technology, through development and optimization, so that the game mouse in the wireless connection state has the same millisecond rate of return as the wired connection, and it will also optimize battery power consumption and improve battery life for the game mouse.

Bluetooth wireless connection

It is a wireless technical standard, which can realize short-distance data exchange between fixed devices, mobile devices and building personal local area networks, and is commonly used in peripherals (mouse, keyboard, headphones, etc.). On the other hand, Bluetooth has an one-to-many working mode, which does not need to be connected by an external receiver, but only needs the device to have a Bluetooth module to achieve code pairing.

 

How to choose 2.4G mouse and Bluetooth mouse?

2.4G wireless connection technology is more robust and stable in connection performance (millisecond response technology, plug and play, low power consumption, etc.). 2.4G wireless products must be equipped with receiver, which can only achieve one-to-one operation mode.

Bluetooth wireless connection technology does not need a receiver, only needs the Bluetooth module function on the device to connect, and can realize one-to-many working mode at the same time, but it must be code-to-code connection, which is limited by Bluetooth protocol. In the single point performance, it cannot achieve part of the competitive performance of 2.4G.

Thus we draw a conclusion that for competitive games, which require high wireless stability, we prefer to use 2.4G wireless connections, while in office and daily use, Bluetooth connection technology can be connected to a wider range of devices. One-to-many working mode is also more convenient.

Our AI speech mouse is optional for both 2.4G wireless connection and Bluetooth wireless connection. With built-in 500mAh rechargeable lithium battery, it can work 200 hours after 2 hours charge. Its intelligent speech translation function makes it a perfect choice for office and daily use.
