MeLE is mostly known as a manufacturer of Android TV boxes and air mice, and I use MeLE F10 Deluxe air mouse in all my Android mini PCs review, as even though it’s not perfect it does the job much better than an IR remote control, and is more convenient to use than a USB keyboard. The two MeLE air mouse I’ve purchased come with a 2.4GHz RF dongle that needs to be connected to a USB port of the device you want to control, but now the company is now about to launch a Bluetooth model with MeLE F10 BT.
MeLE F10 BT (RF01BL) specifications:
- Connectivity – Bluetooth 4.0 (CSR1011)
- IR support – Yes, including IR learning function.
- Buttons Life – About 100,000 presses
- Sensors – G-sensor, Gyroscope
- Keyboard – QWERTY keyboard
- Battery – 2x AAA batteries (>30 days in standby mode)
- Dimensions – 169x48x19 mm
The latest MeLE air mouse will sell for $19.99 including shipping on MeLE Aliexpress store once it launches in the middle of September.

Do you know how well it works with multiple devices? I mean, different profiles of IR learning, switch from controlling one device to controlling another using some key combo, etc.
IR learning did not work for me (with F10 Deluxe), so I’m not sure I can comment on that. For others, IR learning worked for a few days, then it died on them, while others had no issues.
It’s difficult to know whether MeLE improved this part in their new model since it’s not out yet.
Thanks, then I’ll wait and hope for your review before ordering it.. 🙂
I don’t review all devices I feature here, so don’t wait for me, as I’m not sure I’ll review that one… But I’m sure some people will get one, and you can get feedback here or on Freaktab.
Anybody know what this is not pairing ?
Yep, I had the same problem… I was able to pair it once and then it will never ever pair back again. It always displays the incorrect PIN or Passkey problem.
With all the Data information on the CSR1011 chip used on these BTf10, would it be possible to to connect these with UART cable and fix it that way?
Anyone ever figured this out? Since Mele stopped making these is there any possibility of a hardware reset some how?
Have you tried 8888 as pin, even if the documentation says another number…?
Did that work for you?
Does it work with all android tv box or only mele boxes??
Basic feature like keyboard, remote control, air mouse mode will work with any TV boxes with Bluetooth.
But some special features like game mode, probably not.
I wnated to buy a mele F10BT but they don’t exist anymore. Probably cause to the problems taked about here. I see COOD-E does have the exact same remote ( http://www.cood-e.eu/shop/products/cood-e-key.html ) but there they talk about the keypad anly beiing bleutooth and the front beiing IR. Can somebody explain how this remote really works regarding bluetooth and IR?
