I don't know about Movea, but I supported Gyration air mice for a while. They don't use accelerometers, they use a slightly more accurate ultra-fragile gyro component that's shaped like a cube. If you ever fumble one a few feet onto a floor or desk, expect the cursor to shoot off in a random direction every time you enable the airmouse functionality. They would break down so often (in classrooms for lesson presentations) we finally gave up on warranty returns and replacements and just stopped buying them. The charger is also deceptive on Gyration's basic mouse too because if you set it down, the cradle light comes on, but it's not charging unless the mouse-top light also blinks. -_-;
