At least with the Apple mice, it's worth noting the poor battery life
may have more to do the the "touch" functionality (i.e. two finger
scrolling, etc), as opposed to the fact that it's using Bluetooth as
the underlying transport.

That said, I second your comment - my Dell wireless mouse can go for
months on a single set of batteries, whereas for my Apple mouse I went
out and bought a set of rechargeables including a spare pair because I
had to change the batteries so frequently.
