Logitech keyboard&mouse has 3 years of battery life:

Not sure if the batteries are rechargable ones though. Some logitech keyboards have a base when you plug the keyboard into to charge the batteries.

If they say 3 years, then I expect about 6 weeks or so after the claims of the last cordless mouse I used...

I have the Logitech MX950 mouse - brilliant hardware, but the battery lasts about two weeks. This is nothing, compated with the Microsoft mouse I had before, which easily would go six months on a single pair.

I have the Microsoft Wireless Keyboard and Mouse combo and only recharged the batteries once during all of last year.  Admittedly I didn't use them for a few months while overseas, but generally get six months or more as you say.  I use a pair of AA-sized Energizer NiMH rechargeables in each and the same batteries must have been recharged at least 5 times by now without any loss of capacity.

Wow, I have many energizer rechargables that are dead after 2 weeks off the charger. No idea how you have managed that sort of life out of a pair of them.

I dont even bother with rechargables for the remotes, no warning when they are low, and they die on their own too quickly, and the range on most 2 cell remotes sucks on rechargables too.
