Anker Wired Vertical Ergonomic Mouse

40W car charger - product

Product Description

Prevent against painful cramping and soreness – without any sacrifice to performance – with this ergonomically designed vertical mouse from Anker

Increased Comfort

While normal horizontal mice place undue strain on the wrist, this model improves the navigating experience by employing basic ergonomic principles. Construction from lightweight plastic allows for easy movement, while the stock’s 45-degree angle encourages a healthy, neutral “handshake” position, which requires little time to get used to.

Unbeatable Value

With most similarly-designed mice costing anywhere from $50 to $100, the Anker vertical mouse provides a reasonable alternative to both experienced and inexperienced users of such devices. A warranty of 18 months, backed by Anker’s top-class customer support team, ensures that you can rest easy in the knowledge of your product’s durability.

Easy to Use

This USB mouse may be inserted directly into either your keyboard or computer and, due to plug & play technology, will be ready to use in no time. 1000 DPI resolution ensures a more responsive feel than most standard optical mice for smooth and precise tracking, while added Next/Previous buttons reduce effort during webpage browsing.

  • Excellent investment to attack that pain in the... wrist
  • This vertical mouse is an excellent investment, and its low price makes it even better!I was looking for a comfortable mouse to give some rest to my wrist (I have a lipoma on my wrist just underneath the nerves and sometimes the pain with a traditional small-low horizontal mouse is unbearable). I work with a mouse about 6 hours a day and other 3 or 4 hours with a pen, and I also play bass guitar and contrabass, so I really need to take care of my wrist).Although my hand is bigger than the average and my fingers are very long, the overall size and weight of the Anker vertical mouse make this product a be very comfortable one. I have not had any problems getting used to the shape or movement, but sometimes when I jump from the keyboard to the mouse I tend to slap it. -Take that, you... vertical mouse! (the height of it is something to bear in mind, but it has never fallen from the desk, it just falls on its right side like a cow on drugs).The angle is nice and very close to the natural "handshake position" of your wrist and hand. The buttons are big and you can reach them either with long or small fingers and they are reasonably easy to push without much effort (I've got a "gamer's" mouse and the middle button is very hard to push, comparing to the Anker vertical mouse's middle button).This is of course not a gamer's mouse, it's a simple ergonomical vertical mouse for right-handed people. It includes left, right and middle button, a vertical scroll wheel, two very easy-to-reach buttons next to your thumb for going back and forth in your internet browser, and an extra button to change dpi (the speed of the pointer on the screen when you move your mouse on your desk). There isn't any software to it, it is a standard plug-and-play mouse with no further configurations.Imperfections to this beauty: It could be even more comfortable if it was a little closer to the vertical. I would add some horizontal platform to its right side so the hand could rest completely on the mouse and not touching the mousepad (or desk), and the curve between your palm and your thumb could be wider (more like when you grab a can, less like when you grab a thin book).All in all, I strongly recommend you give this mouse a try. If you want to improve the health and posture of your wrist, this is an excellent option.

  • Love this mouse. Helps immensely with wrist pain. Top notch as usual from Anker
  • 2015-07-06

  • So far it seems to help.
  • I also bought a gel wrist pad to use with this. With the combo, the mouse took no time to adjust to. I also bought an ergonomic keyboard. With all three I haven't had tight forearms lately.

Customer FAQ

Q1.  What is DPI?
Dots per inch (DPI) is a measurement of the mouse's sensitivity. A high DPI setting will translate small movements of the mouse on your mouspad to very large movements of the cursor on the screen and can help improve mouse accuracy.
Q2.  What is polling rate?
Polling rate (or report rate) determines how often your mouse sends information to your computer. The number in Hz directly translates to the number of times each second the mouse send data to the computer.
Q3.  What factors are most important to take into consideration when buying a new gaming mouse?
There are two major factors to consider when choosing a gaming mouse: the way the mouse feels in your hand and its performance. As long as you feel comfortable when clicking, moving, and gripping the mouse, then it will be an appropriate choice. As for performance, you should take several key parameters into account, such as the number of function keys, DPI, polling rate, and customizability. Generally speaking, the higher the value of DPI and polling rate the faster the operating speed and accuracy of the mouse will be.
Q4.  Can I use the gaming mouse to replace my regular mouse?
Yes, absolutely. The gaming mouse is completely optimised, this means it can facilitate web browsing and use with any other software. By creating different profiles for different applications, you can use the gaming mouse to completely revolutionise the way you use your computer.
Q5.  Do I need drivers for my Vertical mouse to work?
No. It’s Plug and Play.
Q6.  How come the extra side buttons do not work on Mac?
The extra side buttons are only compatible with browsers running on Windows.
Q7.  Is there a left handed version of this mouse?
No, only right handed.
Q8.  How come the operating range is so poor sometimes?
This is an indication of low batteries. Please replace the batteries to fix the issue.
Q9.  What is the primary function of the extra side buttons?
They are used in browsers to move to forwards and backwards. Will work on Windows computers only.
Q10.  Are there size variations for this mouse?
No. We only have one standard size. 115 x 58 x 87 mm / 4.5 x 1.7 x 3.5in

The mouse rocks

I have never had a Ergonomic Mouse before so I have decided to try one but most of them are either with bad looking or with a high price range.

When I saw the Anker Wired Vertical Ergonomic Mouse from Amazon, I felt that I had to try it. With the giving price, it can't be too wrong.

The fact is: I have been using my Anker Wired Vertical Ergonomic Mouse for over a month, I can see why it is necessary for the IT worker like me to have one of such great product. Buy one for yourself if you are a heavy user of computer. You will benefit from using it in the long term.

Why doesn't the scroll wheel work?

I got this mouse at the suggestion of a colleague. I love how it feels. But it worked for about a day. After that, the scroll wheel might work for a few minutes a day if I'm lucky, but mosty it just doesn't scroll at all. I notice lots of people complaining about this, but no answers of any kind. I also saw an online review that said the "original mouse" had this problem (in 2014) but all the new mice were fine. Well, I bought this in April or May 2015 and it's still enough of a problem that I can't use the mouse. Is there a fix forthcoming? I've asked for an exchange, but if the new mouse has the same problem as the old one, there doesn't seem to be much point... 

It's a crying shame because it's really comfortable!

I thought the Customer Support would have that kind of knowledge. It's not like polling rate is some kind of obscure parameter. :) Thanks anyways!

Problem with scroller.

I bought it almost a month ago and it's scroller has already started skipping. I was about to order 3 more for the office but not anymore. This shows how it is better to stay with normal mouse and by a company like Logitech. O well, I gave it 5 stars on the site where I bought it from. Worst thing, no support number available for India. What should I do?

Anker is not Logitech, they are not big enough to sell and support in every country in the world. But you don't need a support number, email them at and see what they can do for you if you bought it from an authorized source (Anker store at Amazon or eBay). For what it's worth, the other company you mention ranks with me as the absolute worst customer service of any company anywhere. They are one of the reasons I use Anker products, where I know I will be taken care of.

It sounds like you may not have purchased it from AnkerDirect.

We'd suggest you get in touch with the original seller, they should help you process the warranty.

Stripe color

In some pictures this mouse has a blue stripe on the side, and in some it is grey. Which one will I receive if I buy this through Amazon?

Replies(1) Collapse Report as spam Feb 11, 2015 at 7:18 PM
The strip is an LED so it's blue when it is lit but will be grey when not connected to a computer.

I bought two of the same vertical mouse about 8 months ag, one for work and one for home.

I've been noticing that the middle wheel has not been reacting well, and it doesn't let me scroll, but rather it keeps doing the same thing as if I'm just moving the wheel forward and backward repetitively.  Funny thing is that both of my mouses are doing the same now.  Are the wheels supposed to malfunction after using several months?

It's very unusual to hear of any issues with this mouse so to hear of two with the same customer is incredibly strange.

Anker mouse constantly skipping

I've purchased three of these anker mice for my company. After about 8-10 months of use, my mouse is starting to skip sporatically during use.  Looking at the lazer underneath, nothing seems to be wrong, but I'm having trouble doing my work because of this.

Are there any solutions you can think of to help me?

Just curious if you're using WIN 7? I've experienced that with other brands of pointing devices and recall reading that there was some issue with WIN 7 working well with mice. Thanks.

It sounds like there may be a hair or some dust on the laser. If this doesn't solve it then check your software settings on your OS.

Switch Next Page and Last Page buttons.

As there are no specialized drivers for Anker Vertical Mouse, I was wondering if there were other possibilities to edit button functions. In practice, users use "Last Page" function more frequently than "Next Page". Yet for the Anker Vertical Mouse it is the "Next Page" button that is at the tip of the thumb, therefore more conveniently reachable. Is there a way to switch those? 


P.S. Love the mouse otherwise, sits very comfortably in hand.

We don't know of a way that these can be switched unfortunately. There may be software available that allows it but we don't have any specific recommendations.

Hi,I received my first vertical mouse yesterday and it felt comfortable from the first moment. Everything works perfectly except the function and monitoring of the DPI button is unclear to me. Could you explain please.Many thanks.

When you press the button the DPI will increase from 1000 to 1600 DPI.
Reply Report as spam Dec 9, 2014 at 9:06 AM
The button will increase the DPI setting on the mouse.

Essentially for non-gamers this will appear to just increase the sensitivity of the mouse. For gamers though it can help increase accuracy and allows for a more customisable experience.
