My mouse won’t function when using the cord to charge it. Moreover, it does not function when fully charged and plugged in. Do I have something missing?

It must function. If not, try these fixes: check if your USB port is functioning correctly, or try a different one. Just turn on the switch underneath the mouse to check. If the issue persists, try a different USB-C cable or get in touch with the vendor; if your equipment is broken in any way, they could send you a replacement.

Is it possible to use the same dongle that comes with the keyboard’s mouse? Vishnu, Redragon K596

On the mouse end, a typical USB Type-C cable is used, and on the computer end, a typical USB 2.0 cable. Indeed, I would say. The K596 also makes use of a USB Type C.

I’ve had this charging for the past 12 hours with the red flashing light on. Am I missing something?

If the scroll wheel is blinking red, your device is in eco mode, as has probably already been determined. The switch has three positions: eco, off, and on. The middle position is the off setting.

What, if any, differences exist between the setup for BT and USB?

Not sure what you mean by setup; I connect through USB. I only use it as a regular mouse, not for gaming. Uncomfortable to use because it seems to require the chord most of the time while in heavy usage owing to power depletion from use/lights. Moreover, the support choices only allow for single colors or pre-programmed cycling colors, rendering software to change lights all but worthless.

The wheel is smooth?

You can feel each tick if you scroll slowly up or down because it “ticks” as you move the cursor. Almost identical to other mice. It is treaded and rubberized, somewhat like like a vehicle tire, if you meant texture. Overall, I adore this mouse. completes the task!

Where do you get the software from? I believe it to be Redragon software, but I can’t seem to locate it.

The supplemental software is available here. You can’t put links in this, so you’ve had to type it weirdly to get around it. merely include the com redragonshop (click software at the top). For some reason, Redragon has about 3 websites. RD Shop, RD Shop Zone, and RD USA. It’s strange how one website will have drivers for one of its items but the other won’t.

Does this mouse drag to make a sound?

as in clicking and dragging your window’s widgets? Then, of course. I believe that every mouse does that action indefinitely. I have owned this mouse for a number of months. It is a kickass mouse, and I really suggest it as well as other Red Dragon items.

I’ve got two PCs next to each other. Can I use two wireless ones next to each other?

I haven’t personally utilized two of them in close proximity to one another, but you should be able to. Yet, it functions properly when near other wireless devices ( keyboards and trackpads).

Do the lights come on automatically or do they come on just when the mouse is moved?

Actually, both. Once you move it, they remain lit for a time until ultimately turning off once more, much like a monitor going to sleep. For the record, I’m using a Mac, so a PC could behave differently. I am aware that the PC provides access to custom settings that a Mac does not provide.

Is the claw grip on this mouse good?

Yeah, the mouse is really rather pleasant to use when held with a claw grip. The buttons are still easily accessible, and your fingers don’t chafe against one another. By the way, the mouse with a claw grip is comfortable even with my enormously large hands and lengthy fingers; it would also be comfortable if you had little hands.
