I don't honestly think the batteries make any difference what so ever. My MM is all but useless. It spends more time down than operating. I have done everything suggested on this forum, including packing the batteries out with paper to ensure good connection. None of it works. It loses connection may times a day.
I have to say there is one way that I have found to get it connected other than switching off and praying, and that is to drop the thing from about 12" on to a hard desk top. That shakes it in to life for a while!!
It is a white mouse, but it is really a white elephant!
Sorry I cannot be of more help, but I really do not think it makes any difference what make of batteries you use. I have given umpteen feedbacks to Apple about the sorry device, but nothing ever happens. I even went into an Apple store to buy their batteries, but was told I had to buy six and a charging device because they do not sell small packs of batteries for their devices. What planet are they on?
I wish you luck!

well that's disheartening =(
I thought it just coincided with me having swapped out from the Duracells. The Dura's were great, the energizer recharges are when this started and I figured it was because they were rechargeable. sadness.
I'm gonna try dura's again just in case. Hope it works and I don't have to give up on this thing because I can't live without horizontal scrolling.

I've tried Duracell, Energiser rechargeable's, Uniross rechargeable's, Kodak, Everready, Boots, and any other ones I can get hold of. None of them maintain connection, and conventional ones go thru' power so quickly as to be untrue. As I said earlier, it really is a lemon. I am at my wits end as to see how it can be rectified and work as the designer intended. I use the word "designer" guardedly!!
I will keep my eye on your post just incase someone can come up with lasting solution.
