Who manufactures MacMice products?
The MacMice Company is a fifteen-year-old design and manufacturing company located in Taipei, Taiwan. The products we design are manufactured by our own factory or are licensed to be manufactured by other factories, each the one we judged best qualified to build that type of product.
Typically, the name and location of the factory are marked on the product packaging, as we encourage our suppliers to take pride and responsibility in their workmanship, and to promote their own company identity.

So, who am I buying from here?
You are purchasing your products directly from the MacMice Canadian distributor, Atlantia Holdings Inc. (AHI Canada), a British Columbia, Canada corporation. All products sold by MacMice.ca are of original design and are exclusively available through MacMice.
‘Exclusive?’ I have seen some of these products being sold in other places!
The MacMice design team previously created many products for other companies, and these were sold under other brands. We have reacquired the exclusive rights to some of the nicer early products, have worked with our factory partners to improve them, and, have brought them into our exclusive lineup.
It is possible that early versions of these products are still being sold from old inventory elsewhere. Over time, the early products will disappear, leaving only the fresh new versions being sold by MacMice. If you want to play Pokemon Go then have look.
Welcome to 21st-century mousing, and the new The Mouse BT, from MacMice! Using dependable Bluetooth wireless technology, this powerhouse of a mouse combines elegant design, world-class engineering and construction, and plug-and-play compatibility with a wide range of modern Macs and PC’s.
The Mouse BT may not be the first Bluetooth wireless mouse to hit the market; but, it benefits from the late arrival by improving many of the annoying shortcomings that are present in earlier BT mice. Cursor lag, long reactivation delays, unexpected disconnects… all of these are improved in The Mouse BT.
With thousands of email requests received from our customers, asking for a Bluetooth wireless version of our market-leading USB The Mouse, we have made it our mission to create the absolute best answer possible: The Mouse BT.
The Features You Asked For
The Mouse BT is available with either bright-white or silver-aluminum inner shell; both versions have the stylish clear acrylic outer shell, with the same subtle split-shell upper surface as our USB The Mouse. This design permits having as little disruption to the clean design lines of the mouse as possible, but still enables accurate multi-button operation. The Mouse BT has 800cpi tracking resolution; a fast, responsive optical tracking mechanism; a power conserving on-off switch; a simple to use connection button; and, it runs for weeks on two AA alkaline batteries (included). We have tried to build the best Bluetooth wireless mouse on the market, and, we believe that we’ve succeeded.
No Driver Software Required
The Mouse BT works right out of the box with the built-in OS-level drivers in both Mac OS X and Windows XP. No separate software driver is needed. It is fully compliant with the Bluetooth v1.0 HID device profile, so, it is fully compatible with any Mac OS X or Windows XP system with a built-in Bluetooth transceiver, or that uses the D-Link DBT-120 USB Bluetooth adapter. Whether you have built-in Bluetooth, or you use the D-Link USB stick-type adapter, if your system supports the v1.0 HID device profile, you can pair it to The Mouse BT.
The Mouse BT gives you a standard left button, a right button for Control-Click (contextual menu) functions, an under-the-wheel scroll wheel button for applications that take advantage of that feature (Maya, and others), and a silky smooth-operating, notch-free scroll wheel. There is no separate driver software… The Mouse BT has the mouse features built-in to Mac OS X or Windows XP, automatically.
You should be aware that the Bluetooth implementation on both the Mac and Windows platform is evolving very rapidly. Apple, especially, is being very aggressive about releasing updates to its OS X platform and to its Bluetooth-specific hardware and software. We absolutely recommend that all Mac-based buyers of The Mouse BT visit the Apple web site, and download and install all of the latest Bluetooth updates. Believe us: Your mouse will work noticeably better using the latest OS X and other Bluetooth improvements from Apple.
Note About Shipping Times
We are now shipping The Mouse BT. However, be aware that this product is turning out to be the most popular new Mac accessory on the market, and we are being inundated with orders. At this time, new orders are taking 2-days (two business days) to be processed and to leave our warehouse. Overnight and 2nd Day shipping customers need to understand that the shipping time does not start until the order leaves our warehouse. We are adding shipping staff, and have increased our production, going into Christmas. At this time, supply is not a problem. But, handling many hundreds of orders per day is causing us to be a day or two behind our normal same-day shipping on this product.
