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.
- 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.
