At CES 2018, Razer today revealed world’s first battery-less wireless gaming mouse with the Razer Mamba HyperFlux and Razer Firefly HyperFlux power mat. Unlike other wireless mice out there, Razer HyperFlux tech allows the mouse mat to create a magnetic field that transfers power directly to its companion mouse instead of charging a battery. Since there is no battery inside it, the mouse becomes an an ultra-lightweight accessory.

For great signal strength, this mouse is equipped with Razer’s proprietary Adaptive Frequency Technology (AFT) that ensures wireless signal stability between the mouse and computer by adaptively scanning and switching to the strongest signal within the 2.4 GHz frequency band. And it features a 16,000 dots-per-inch (DPI) 5G optical sensor for precise control. The mat features a dual-sided hard and cloth surface so that gamers can use the hard side for speedy mouse actions or the cloth side for control and precision aiming. Like most of the accessories from Razer, Razer Chroma lighting technology is built into these accessories for customizable lighting profiles and in-game effects.

“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 HyperFlux wireless hardware combo will be available in Q1 2018.
