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.

Customer Reviews

  • So worth it, the ladies love it, your wrist will thank you
  • I'm one year deep in using the Anker Ergonomic Vertical Mouse (wired). And now? I could never see myself going back to a traditional mouse. While I could go on and on repeating many of the positive comments already left here, I'll just confirm what everyone else has said. So, confirmed!Two things:A month or two ago, the scroll wheel started to get so sensitive that scrolling felt 'jumpy'. For example, when scrolling down a webpage, I really have to do it deliberately or the page will very briefly jump back up before continuing down.There's a big advantage to the wired version over you move your hand from the keyboard to the mouse, you will inevitably hit the mouse and cause it to fly off your desk. The wire keeps it from hitting the ground. You eventually get used to the new form factor and don't even notice that you're correcting as you move to grab it. But I can only imagine what my wireless vertical mouse would look like after all the times I hit it.I credit this little dude for saving my wrists. Gets a lot of attention from the curious, too. You're doing the world a public service by picking one of these up and explaining to all that will listen how important ergonomics is for the modern computer operator.

  • It works great at relieving the stress in my hand
  • I work on the computer all day at work, drafting in AutoCAD. I previously would get some pain in my wrist. It works great at relieving the stress in my hand.

  • No cramps with this mouse.
  • Even after using all day, my hand was not stiff or sore. Only negative is that the profile is a little high, and I sometimes knock it when I reach back to use it after having used the keyboard with my right hand. But the positives outweigh that. Even the 1st grader in my house uses it with ease.

  • A useful variation on the mouse design for someone who mouses all day long
  • This is an interesting variation of design of a standard mouse. It is supposed to reduce the strain on your wrist because your hand is in a more natural position when operating this mouse. For me it definitely took some time to get used to it. One difficulty is that when I click on either of the left or right mouse buttons the cursor shifts a little, and this is obviously causing problems in some apps. So one has to learn to click in such a way that the cursor does not shift. The second issue was locating the buttons with your fingers as the buttons are pretty small and located just near the wheel. Again, after a while I learned to remember to hold the index and middle finger just near that wheel. The bottomline is that this mouse is not for everyone, but if you have a problem with the wrist strain it is definitely worth a try. I also heard from friends that it was working great for them, so you might not experience the issues I have had. To the manufacturer I would suggest making the surface over the mouse buttons of a different texture so that the fingers could easily identify where these buttons are by feel.

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

Hi Paul,

Are you using this for a Mac? If yes, other users have the same concern that the Page up and down is not working in Mac OS. Maybe ANKER team will be able to help you out.

Very good, but could be improved!

After a few weeks of use, I have to say that the price/quality of this mouse ratio is very high!!

Howewer, it could be improved in many ways:

- absence of lateral scroll

- absence of hyper-fast scrolling (I was used to have in my former Logitch mouse)

- thumb buttons not running in OSX 

I'm waiting for a new improved edition ;-)

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.
