What is a Mouse Bungee, and What Does it Do?

You have to control that mouse somehow.

Avid gamers, especially those interested in joining the competitive scene, will want to look into a mouse bungee. A mouse bungee is a device that keeps your mouse wire secure and out of the way, typically by pinning it up.

The primary appeal of this is that it can essentially transform a wired mouse into a wireless mouse. This may sound trivial and you may be asking yourself why not just purchase a wireless mouse, but there is a good reason.

A wireless mouse runs the risk of running out of battery in key moments. They also tend to have greater lag and latency than a wired mouse. Competing in Esports or just playing a competitive game and having your mouse disconnect or not move as fast as the competition can be disastrous. Having a wired mouse is critical as it won't disconnect and have far fewer latency issues.

Even if you aren't a competitive or pro gamer, a mouse bungee can still save you some headache. If you've ever had your wire get caught or scrolled over it while trying to do something, you know that it can be frustrating. A mouse bungee removes the risk that of your wire getting in the way of your movements and other interruptions.
