New mouse not working

  1. Hi, i bought a Prestigio Wireless Racer Mouse yesterday (Model PJ-MSL3W) and put in the batteries that came with it (2XAA Alkaline batteries), then i plugged the receiver into my computer and everything worked fine for about 5 minutes. Then the mouse just stopped responding, the mouse cursor stopped moving. I put in other batteries, plugged the receiver back in and turned on the mouse, it worked for about 10 seconds then it just stopped responding again. After that i tried 3 other sets of batteries, did the same thing with all of them.
    So my question is this, does a wireless mouse like the one i bought need some sort of special batteries or do i simply need to buy a pair of new batteries that was never used before? or is the device broken?

    dont know if this helps but my Microsoft mouse would only work with re-chargable batts, may be to do with the fact that they are only 1.25 Volts ???
