What is cordless mouse? - Definition from WhatIs.com
Part of the Peripherals glossary:

A cordless mouse frees you from cord problems. It connects to your computer with a radio (rather than an infrared) signal, powered by two AAA batteries. One manufacturer, Logitech, offers two versions of a three-button mouse; one includes a button positioned for the thumb (for right-handed users). The buttons can be assigned different uses during system setup.
