Mysteries of the Universe: Mouse Batteries

I work primarily from a nice armchair. Unfortunately, the armrest is rounded, and it's a rocking chair, so I drop my wireless mouse a lot. In almost three years, though, I've only killed one mouse.

This mouse, though, has a strange habit. It will run for quite a while on a low battery - as low as 1.05 volts. However, if I drop the house while the battery is low, sometimes the mouse will stop working until I replace the battery. I'm not sure if the jolt kills the battery, or just resets the mouse. It's rather strange.
