Mele F10 Deluxe Air Mouse with Improved Gyroscope, IR Learning Function Sells for $29.99

In most of my reviews, I don’t use the IR remote control that comes with the device but instead Mele F10 air mouse, because it’s just more convenient for Android as it features one side with a standard remote, one side with a QWERTY keyboard, and a gyroscope that let you move the mouse pointer like a magic wand. Last year Mele released the Pro version with microphone and headphone support, but I’ve heard some people complain as it would just take over the audio output by default, and you’d get no audio via HDMI, until you change the setting manually. Nevertheless, Mele has now another version called Mele F10 Deluxe, without microphone nor headphone support, but instead it’s an improvement over the original Mele F10 air mouse with a better gyroscope and the ability to record some IR codes from another remote control.

The 6-axis gyroscope is said to be good enough to allow game play, but there may be a limited number of games supported (TBC). The IR learning function can be activated via the “A.I Power” button as the top which must stand for “Alternative Input” and you can record power on/off, left, right, up, down, confirm/enter, volume +, and volume –  from the infrared remote control of another device.

Here are some of the technical details:

  • Radio Frequency – 2.4GHz RF up to 10 meters range
  • USB – Mini USB for charging
  • Sensors – 6-axis gyroscope, G-sensor
  • Battery – Build-in 500 mAh Lithium battery; standby time: over 200 days
  • Button Lifespan – Over 100,000 times

Mele F10 Deluxe works with Android, Windows XP/Vista/7/8, Mac OS, and Linux. The remote ships with a small USB RF receiver to connect your device or computer, a mini USB cable for charging the air mouse, and user’s manual.

Mele F10 Deluxe is currently available for pre-order for $34.99 on Mele’s Aliexpress store, but you can get $5 discount by mentioning you’ve been referred by CNX Software in the comment field, bringing the price down to $29.99. You’ll need to wait until the end of June to get the air mouse shipped. The company is also planning to send me a sample, so you can expect a review soon.

    Sorry, I guess no giveaway for this item.

    @adem
    That’s the one. I did not even know about it – http://www.geekbuying.com/item/Tronsmart-TSM-01-Air-Mouse—Keyboard-for-TV-Box—PC—Motion-Sensing-Games-317283.html

    Looks similar, including a built-in battery, but no IR learning function, and less buttons on both sides of the air mouse. It may not be an issue for most people.

    Never buy a keyboard without illumination unless you are going to watch TV and movies with the light on

    Have you tried the IR learning function and game mode? Neither work for me…

    No I haven’t but I’m a little disappointed with the center left mouse click on mine sometimes i have to press two or three times as the first or second click just moves the cursor its annoying, I find the actual left mouse button in an odd spot so I use it anyway..I agree about needing a backlight for inputs in the dark ,especially for the keyboard…

    I have not tried it with Windows. Maybe you need to change some settings in your BIOS related to USB / power management.
