Angry red light
I have a wireless mouse that recharges on a base so I never have to worry about batteries. Recently when I put my mouse of its base it has been giving me an angry flashing red light. The first time I same it I picked it up then reseated it. I thought maybe the light was telling me that the battery was really low, but usually it flashed red when it was off the base. I decided to leave it for a bit to if it changed to green. It didn’t. After several days of not charging it I thought I would try different batteries. Indeed the new set gave me a friendly flashing green light. So, after a year with my mouse I now know that an angry flashing red light means the batteries are quitting. So long old blue batteries, it has been a good year.
