I just bought an expensive steel series wireless mouse for the same reason. I love the rat design but I'm tired of the tracking issues and , on my RAT 9, WiFi interference problems. I have not had a single problem with the steel series mouse I purchased in July. The tracking kills my older rat9. It may even have an updated version of the twin eye laser, I'm not sure, but it works way better than my RAT does, and on the same pad too.

I have a chance to pick up a second-hand Rat 9 for good money but before doing so, can anyone help with these questions?...

Battery Life:
Seems that it's almost two years old I was wonder how long the batteries would last before needing replacements?

Hand size:
I'm hoping the ability to extend the palm rest will make it a little more suitable for big hand... (I tend to use a palm grip as opposed to claw grip and my palm almost never reaches the mouse)...

Finally, I read quite a few posts indicating some issues with communication so would the Rat 7 (wired) be a better option?

Many thanks...
Mike...

Battery would likely last about five hours on a two year old mouse. Maybe more depending on how it was treated. They should be good for another few years although I bought new ones at about the three year mark but the old ones were still working.
Mine is one of the original versions and the tracking issues were the same as the rat 7 at the time.
I have also had intermittent WiFi interference issues with mine. This will really depend on how many wireless networks are in your area and what channels they are on. I did have the mouse working pretty good for about a year and a half but a couple of guys moved into my place and both of them use the WiFi. Since then I started getting the interference issue again, which is why I bought a different mouse in July. You might not get this fault but you can never be sure.
I hear that if you move the Palm rest back all the way it makes the mouse easy to tilt to the rear. Haven't tried that myself.

Hi,
here is my RAT 7 I bought it 4 years ago and its still performing like day 1. I have all the weights put in and the pinky rest installed and the rubber palm rest. I love the fact that you can customize the mouse to practically and size and feel, and its just different to other mice.

@Mergatroid, many thanks for the info just what I needed...

@aminvz, it's nice to know someone has had no issues, there's quite a few negative reviews in relation to Catz mice... Oner of my favourite ended with... "It's the best mouse I ever had... when it's working"... wink.gif

Have 4 - only one has gone bad, and that was one I picked up 5 years ago and have been using as a daily driver at work ever since: basicly the mouse buttons are not always reading.

But - hey, don't think anything can survive a few million clicks.

I have a Ratt9 mouse and wonder is it ok to leave the battery when fully charged in the dock or is it best to take it out.

I have one of the early versions of the rat9. I always left the battery in the dock until I needed to swap it.
With all the lithium ion wireless mice I have owned I have always left them in their respective chargers when I wasn't using them. It's never caused a problem that I know of.

If the battery is electrically (or mechanically) isolated when fully charged, you can leave it in the charger until the cows come home...

Some designs rely on the battery's internal protection circuitry to prevent overcharging... in almost all cases, it is normal to recommend removing the battery once it is fully charged as they cannot guarantee the operation of the battery's internal protection circuitry...

Better designs monitor the charge current and or battery voltage and electrically isolate the battery when completely charged... check the manufacturers web site for the correct charging procedure...

I can't believe the rat 9 charger is capable of damaging the battery if left plugged in, it would make no sense to sell such a product...
