Can someone please recommend a solution to my slipstream RGB keyboard causing my wireless mouse to become annoyingly slower?

Prior to just a few days ago i was using a J Burrows wireless keyboard/mouse combo (a cheap, no-thrills thing) for my keyboard and mouse needs and since i am a PC gamer, but not the type who ever plays keyboard and mouse games and even though it was basic as basic gets, it served my needs great.

However a few days ago i finally gave in to my temptations and bought a Corsair K57 RGB Gaming keyboard solely for the cool-af RGB lights :D

Thing is though it's keyboard only... so i chucked my no-thrills J Burrows in the bin but kept the mouse (keyboard was full of dust and gunk anyway, but the mouse was still ok)

The J Burrows ran at 2.4 GHz. I have my new RGB keyboard connected via a bluetooth dongle, but it has this "slipstream" thing... plus all my other usb ports are already taken... so now my only option is to use the usb hub i have plugged in with the original dongle for the J Burrows still plugged in and a separate dongle for the K57 plugged in directly next to it.

Since i did that, the keyboard works perfect... but the cheap mouse (still works) but it's like it's running at reduced capacity now (like often i'll have to double-click an icon 2 or 3 times to run it)

I have no problem getting a more powerful mouse (but not a really expensive one) because, as I said, I don’t do keyboard/ mouse gaming. What are some recommendations for a wireless mouse that’s not super expensive and won’t be interfered with by the K57 and it’s slipstream wifi dongle being right next to it?

Update:

Just abit extra because i know some one will mention this and i didn't have enough room to put this in the question... i don't sit at a desk and game. My PC is connected to my tv via HDMI and i use it as my entire home entertainment system... so i need both keyboard and mouse to be wireless.

    99 Cent stores have sold nice $1.99 wireless mice.

    Gearhead sells some good ones.

    I have a Rock Candy brand one that works well, looks good. Was $8 at Staples.

    All my Logitech wireless mouses are great. Not expensive, about $15.

    I have gotten some Microsnot combo units with fair KB and mouse, $25.

    All my other ones are either wired or no brand name and model number.

      All good, just swapped usb ports around so both dongles are as far apart from each other as possible now and problem solved :) Don't know why i didn't think of it right away lol.
