Targus Launches Patent-Pending Sustainable, Ambidextrous Mouse That Easily Converts from Right- to Left-Hand Use

 Anaheim, Calif. — July 25, 2023 – Targus®, the number one laptop case brand in the US and Canada1 and a leader in laptop cases and mobile computing accessories, today announced the availability of its patent-pending ErgoFlip™ EcoSmart™ Mouse, a sustainable, full-sized, ergonomic mouse that easily converts from right- to left-hand use with a simple twist of the top.  

This eco-friendly mouse is made with up to 85 percent post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic and comes in packaging made from recycled materials. It also uses Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) technology which is four times more power efficient than competitive BLE chipsets to reduce power consumption and extend battery life.  

Compatible with multiple devices, it supports up to 4000 DPI to deliver gaming-level performance and has built-in infrared optical tracking technology which provides accurate control across a myriad of surfaces.   

As an additional benefit, it features Targus DefenseGuard™ Antimicrobial Protection2, which helps to create a cleaner surface by preventing the growth of microorganisms on the device and works continuously for the life of the product. 

“This is the first mouse that provides true ergonomics for right- or left-hand use, solving the age-old problem of finding a mouse that truly everyone can use,” explains Mike Sexton, Sr. Director of Global Product Management & Development, Targus. “This, along with its gaming-level performance and precision, and sustainable benefits, including its long battery life, makes it the mouse that does it all.”  

The ErgoFlip EcoSmart Mouse is the latest addition to Targus’ EcoSmart™ Collection of tech accessories. Earlier this year, Targus launched its Sustainable Energy Harvesting EcoSmart™ Keyboard. Named a CES® 2023 Innovation Award Honoree, the full-sized keyboard combines advanced energy-harvesting solar technology with post-consumer recycled materials and BLE technology in sustainable packaging. 

The ErgoFlip EcoSmart Mouse (AMB586GL) can be purchased on Targus.com and through participating retailers throughout the US, Canada, and Europe.
