Silent and antibacterial – the new SPEEDLINK AXON

AXONSpeedlink is proud to present an updated version of its successful ergonomic desktop mouse, the AXON. The upgraded version packs two fresh new features: with its silenced buttons, it produces virtually no noise, plus its special antibacterial coating kills up to 99% of bacteria.

At a time when flu germs are lurking everywhere, good personal hygiene habits are all the more important – hands are only shaken when absolutely necessary, and when you take public transport it smells more like a cross between a hygiene wipe and a hot tub filled with cold remedy products. And it isn’t just public transport, toilets and doctors’ surgeries that harbour bacteria – these pathogens can be found virtually everywhere, with frequently used objects and devices in particular, such as smartphones, TV remotes and even computer mice, being afflicted.

Now protection is at hand against bacterial infection at the desktop thanks to SPEEDLINK’s updated version of the AXON. The mouse features a special antibacterial rubber coating based on the antibacterial properties of silver, which kills up to 99% of bacteria. And the AXON can do a lot more besides: thanks to its silent main buttons the mouse stops generating its own sound effects and you get to enjoy quiet clicks.

“We have upgraded the AXON, one of our most popular office mice, so it’s even better adapted to meet workplace demands. Whether you use it at home or in the office, this ergonomic mouse lets you work without your hand feeling strained, plus you won’t get disturbed by clicking noises – it also makes your workplace a more relaxing and hygienic environment. We’re already working on bringing these great features to our other mice”, said Henner Schröder, Head of Product Management at Jöllenbeck GmbH.

The mouse will be available from online and high-street stores from the start of March 2017 for an RRP of €29.99.

Features:

  • 5-button USB mouse
  • Antibacterial coating – kills up to 99% of bacteria
  • Silenced main buttons for quiet clicks
  • Non-slip rubberised side panels
  • Ergonomic, full-size design with easy access thumb buttons
  • Optical sensor with an adjustable resolution of up to 2400dpi
  • Fast, driverless installation
  • Cable length: 1.5m
