    Has anyone found one other than the

    >Verbatim Mini Optical Travel Mouse for USB-C Devices, Black 99235

    (I mislike the cord winder which adds unnecessary bulk)

    Need one for my GB12 and one app which uses the scroll wheel for zoom.

    You should also search in the direction of a Bluetooth mouse.
    Easier to find than usb-c. And no bulky cord.

    I have not yet tried a Bluetooth mouse with my galaxy book 10.
    I can not tell you if you will have interferences between Bluetooth and Wifi.
    On my AVN8, I resolved the problem of interferences using 5Ghz wifi.

    Hope this will help you.

    Good idea, but I just switched to the GB12 from a Toshiba Encore 2 Write 10, and consider only having to manage only one battery a huge improvement --- I suppose I should get a mouse which I'm willing to accept a dongle on ('cause yeah, I really need to shell out for a 3rd Logitech G600 (one at work, one on my son's gaming rig)), but I'd liefer have a small wired mouse.

    It would be perfect if it offered the option of Bluetooth, and charged via a small USB-C--Mini or Micro-B USB cable (which could be used to connect other things at need)

    Do not worry about charging a Bluetooth mouse. With a single AAA or AA battery, it will last long enough. And it is easy to find them.

    It's only long enough until the battery runs down --- I really don't want to go that route. If I have to, I'll get the Verbatim, but I'd really prefer one w/o the winder.

    Does all bluetooth mouses work without the dongle?
    I see all of them have dongle in the box.

    Those aren't Bluetooth mice, they use a different, more reliable (they claim) protocol for communication.
