Razer announces a wireless mouse that needs no battery, only a mousepad
Razer Unveils Hyperflux Wireless Charging Mousepad
Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, revealed the world’s first battery-less wireless gaming mouse, that will give a new battery-free wireless gaming mouse experience to its gamers. The new mouse and pad combo from Razer allows the mouse to be charged simply through a connection with the pad.
The two products are Mamba (mouse) and Firefly (mat), which utilize the Razer HyperFlux Wireless Power Technology. Razer says the new technology “allows the mouse mat to create a magnetic field that efficiently transfers power directly to its companion mouse instead of charging a heavy battery.”
The Razer Mamba HyperFlux and the Razer Firefly HyperFlux are Razer’s first products to be equipped with this revolutionary technology.
“While other companies have attempted to do wireless charging for mice, they have been unable to achieve true wireless power as their mice still need a battery to be charged. HyperFlux Wireless Power Technology is a game changer in the world of wireless gaming,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “Gamers are no longer held at the mercy of a battery or cable. Instead, there will be true wireless freedom with a cordless gaming mouse that’s the same weight as a wired mouse.”
The Razer Mamba HyperFlux is also equipped with Razer’s proprietary Adaptive Frequency Technology (AFT) and 16,000 dots-per-inch (DPI) 5G optical sensor for “superior signal strength”. When the pad is connected, the mouse will never lose charge.
Both are equipped with Chroma lighting technology, and are capable of unique customizable lighting profiles and in-game effects. Further, the Firefly HyperFlux mat, the latest in Razer’s RGB mouse mat line, features dual-sided hard and cloth surface to allow flexible playstyles. Further, a cable will also be included with the Mamba mouse in case people want to use it without the mat, Razer noted.
The Razer HyperFlux wireless hardware combo will sell for $249.99 / € 279.99 and is available on RazerStore.com and through select retailers in Q1 2018.
