When it comes to the world of gaming mice, a lot of gamers insist that wired is the only way to go. But, there are still fans of wireless mice due to their convenience of being untethered. But, that freedom comes at a cost – batteries. Like having to switch batteries out of your remote, it isn’t good when your mouse battery decides to die in the middle of a session. What if there was a wireless mouse that doesn’t use a battery and is able to maintain a strong connection with a PC? That may sound like science fiction, but it’s a reality. Meet the new Mamba Hyperflux.
This new mouse and mousepad duo has been created by Razer and was shown off recently at CES 2018. The Mamba Hyperflux embraces true wireless freedom by allowing users to keep going without worrying about battery drain. This is achieved by the Hyperflux Power Mat mousepad that keeps the mouse energized. But, how? Magic! Okay, no, it’s actually science. Basically, the mousepad creates a small magnetic feel which then powers the mouse through induction. Due to the lack of a battery, the Mamba Hyperflux mouse is also quite lightweight.
The Razer Mamba Hyperflux sports a 16,000 DPI 5G optical sensor and also has Razer’s Adaptive Frequency Technology to keep the connection between it and your PC strong so all of your mouse movements will be precise. Of course, in typical Razer fashion, both the Mamba Hyperflux mouse and mousepad are lit right up with Chroma RGB backlighting, which them that signature ‘gaming aesthetic’.
So, this all sounds rather cool, right? It does, but you’re probably wondering: “what’s the price?” Just a simple single payment of $249 is all you’ll need to get access to this sweet new piece of tech. Okay, yeah, that’s a pretty steep price. You could buy an entire PS4 or Xbox One with that money. Off-brand wireless mice on Amazon go for about $10, so this is quite the investment. But, remember what you’re paying for here. Induction technology, signature Razer build quality and that sweet RGB lighting. Is it worth it?
