I have Logitech V450 wireless mouse and I seem to have misplaced the tiny little USB transmitter it uses to communicate with the computer.

Where can I get a replacement transmitter?

Once I get a replacement will I have to do anything special to pair the new transmitter and the mouse?

Not that it really matters, but it's not a transmitter, it's a transceiver. –  tnorthcutt Sep 3 '09 at 13:09

If the unit is discontinued by Logitech, you could try Amazon.com to see if they have the exact set - maybe at a lower price. That way you have a spare mouse too.

Usually, the set up is easy - plug in the transmitter - hit the connect button on the transmitter - lights flash - hit the connect button on the mouse - voila!

After some digging around I found the mouse on Logitech's site, followed the support link and found the part. Its $10, plus another $6 for shipping (in the US).

It's almost not worth it. I'll have to see what the current lineup of bluetooth mice looks like.

You can try to gently ask the Logitech support. I have good experience of it : I got free replacement "feet" for one mouse, and they replaced my malfunctioning mx1000 without problem (they actually sent a new one, without me sending back the previous).

So you can always try, maybe they will redirect you to the page you found, to buy a new one, but maybe they will send you one for free, you never know, it's worth a try.

Yes, calling Logitech should be the first recourse. I've had nothing but great experiences from contacting their customer support. –  Matthew Ruston Sep 3 '09 at 13:34
