sadly factories change mice every year so hard to recommend on durability or how long its going to last.
I can recommend on what i used for the past 2 years
Logitech LX8 Cordless Laser Mousehttp://www.compusa.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3761013&CatId=1285
now its hard to find but some stores still sells it. It was 40$ mouse two years ago, got it for 20$ and still use it today
Super responsive feels like wired, I play games a lot and its great even in FPS.
and ya 2 AA batteries lasted me for 1 year, no need for chargers or rechargeable batteries,
