MeLE has several models of air mouse, and they are great to use with Android mini PCs, and sometimes I also use these with my regular PC. I started with the original MeLE F10, but then switched to MeLE F10 Deluxe which provides a better pointer control. It’s not perfect as game mode only works with MeLE media devices, I could never make the IR learning function work, and the pointer tends to jump when I press the OK button, so I’m using the mouse button for clicks instead as it does not suffer from this issue. Nevertheless, MeLE F10 Deluxe is still the device I prefer to use during my mini PCs and boards’ reviews. Previous MeLE F10 air mice all comes with a built-in battery, but some people prefer to use standard batteries, and that’s just what the latest MeLE F10 Lite uses, with other features similar to the Deluxe version.
MeLE F10 Lite hardware specification:
- Radio – 2.4GHz RF; distance: 10 meters
- Sensors – G-sensor, 6-axis gyroscope
- QWERTY Keyboard and remote buttons with 100,000 presses lifespan
- Power – 2x AAA batteries; auto-sleep time: 2 minutes
The remote ships with a tiny RF dongle, and a user’s manual. The QWERTY keyboard appears to be the same as on the Deluxe version, but the remote side has sadly lost the play/pause, FFWD, and FRWD buttons, and only supports one device for the IR learning function instead for three. Beside Android, the input device can also be used with Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10 and Mac OS X.
MeLE F10 Lite can be pre-ordered for $24.99 on Aliexpress, but you should be able to lower that to $19.99 with a $5 discount that you can get on the Aliexpress page. The official price for Lite is $24.99, and Deluxe is $34.99, but if you may also purchase the Deluxe version for $26.99 on GeekBuying.

for me the most important is pause button, is it so hard?
I have the air mouse too (the original one) and I found controlling the cursor quite hard.
Nowadays I am using one of those mini wireless keyboards with a touchpad. These are around $ 11 on ebay.
small warning: the usb dongle for mine was quite flimsy; put it into an usb extension cable as I feared I would break it quite quickly otherwise
I use Lenovo N5902 2.4G which is a great device doing similar things too
Minix came with A2 Lite, and now Mele came with F10 Lite. Both works with 2 X AAA batteries.
A new Lite trend …
