I've been using rechargeable batteries for nearly 6 years now. After about a $40 investment (several batteries, AA and AAA, and the charger), I haven't paid for any more. Also, the batteries in my mouse and keyboard tend to last 6 months or more before I need to charge them. I don't like wires because of drag and because of the already messy area behind my PC (despite having them all tied up and separated). Also, there are more expensive mice out there with adjustable weights, thumb- and pinky-shelves to reduce drag, optional wired/wireless connections, and precision modes to instantly reduce sensitivity when you need to do something like draw a straight line.
