how to enhance acceleration of mouse

I am using the wireless mouse Genius NX-7000. As the acceleration seems a bit low I want to enhance it. Yet fiddling with
the GUI-based settings > keyboard and mouse > settings of input devices seems to have no effect at all.

So I tried this:

xinput list | grep -i mouse
⎜   ↳ MOSART Semi. Wireless Mouse             	id=9	[slave  pointer  (2)]
xinput list-props 9 
Device 'MOSART Semi. Wireless Mouse':
	Device Enabled (126):	1
	Coordinate Transformation Matrix (128):	1.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 1.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 1.000000
	libinput Natural Scrolling Enabled (264):	0
	libinput Natural Scrolling Enabled Default (265):	0
	libinput Scroll Methods Available (266):	0, 0, 1
	libinput Scroll Method Enabled (267):	0, 0, 0
	libinput Scroll Method Enabled Default (268):	0, 0, 0
	libinput Button Scrolling Button (269):	2
	libinput Button Scrolling Button Default (270):	2
	libinput Middle Emulation Enabled (271):	0
	libinput Middle Emulation Enabled Default (272):	0
	libinput Accel Speed (273):	0.000000
	libinput Accel Speed Default (274):	0.000000
	libinput Accel Profiles Available (275):	1, 1
	libinput Accel Profile Enabled (276):	1, 0
	libinput Accel Profile Enabled Default (277):	1, 0
	libinput Left Handed Enabled (278):	0
	libinput Left Handed Enabled Default (279):	0
	libinput Send Events Modes Available (249):	1, 0
	libinput Send Events Mode Enabled (250):	0, 0
	libinput Send Events Mode Enabled Default (251):	0, 0
	Device Node (252):	"/dev/input/event2"
	Device Product ID (253):	1112, 389
	libinput Drag Lock Buttons (280):	<no items>
	libinput Horizontal Scroll Enabled (281):	1
Yet Im not sure how to proceed further.
Could someone help please?

Tnx in advance.

my system: Lubuntu 18.04.2 LTS, 64 bit

i have this in my
xinput --set-prop 12 'libinput Accel Speed' 1 # speed for the wired mouse
you probably need to adjust the device number.
in my experience this is the highest setting, but maybe yours can go higher.
