Wireless mouse and the tab s7

Hi,
I recently purchased the Samsung Tab S7 and am very pleased with it. Couldn't bring myself to spending close to £200 for the keyboard/case so go a cheap alternative from ebay which is surprisingly good. However, it doesn't had a mouse pad, so got a wireless mouse today which I couldn't get to work. It isn't faulty as I tried it on my desktop.
The mouse came with USB transmitter which plugs into the device but this doesn't fit the tablet. I do have an adaptor which enabled me to use the Samsung charger lead to attach to the transmitter, and when I ran the Bluetooth scan it did pickup the mouse but won't connect.
Do I need a specific type of mouse? If so I would appreciate your advice.
Thanks

Indeed, you need a Bluetooth mouse, not a normal 2.4GHz wireless one

"USB Transmitter" Are you sure that this mouse is even Bluetooth? It could be that the Wireless Mouse uses a different type of wireless technology.

You could very well be right. I just bought a wireless mouse never entered my head that it wasn't Bluetooth. Good job it was cheap!

Could you advise on Bluetooth mouse, would any not be suitable?

I purchased a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse set to use with my Tab S7, they both work spot on. I'll find the link for you.

I think you purchased ordinary mouse not Bluetooth mouse.  But you can find best wireless mouse according to your choice on amazon but beware of scam products must read reviews of the product.
