Razer Made a Wireless Mouse With No Battery, Power Absorbed Through Mousepad

Razer Hyper Flux Wireless Power hands-on Magnetic Charging Mouse Magic

If you hate cords and hate recharging batteries, Razer wants to introduce you to its Razer Mamba HyperFlux mouse and its Firefly HyperFlux mouse mat.

"My only real gripe was that the USB cable that connects the mouse or mouse pad to the computer was tight, making switching to a wired mode more hard than it needed to be".

Today at the CES 2018 Razer announced a completely new mousing experience; free of wires and free of heavy batteries.

While Razer is not known for making entirely new products that no one has ever seen before, what it's generally very good at is building and optimizing typical hardware in a way that makes it especially useful and appealing to gaming enthusiasts (and in particular those who are already Razer fans). This isn't your usual wireless charging, though-the Mamba HyperFlux wireless gaming mouse doesn't have a battery at all.

Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan believes this combo will greatly benefit video games.

In use, the Mamba HyperFlux is powered in real-time through a magnetic field. Razer mechanical mouse buttons are equipped for left and right main switches, there's a gaming grade scroll wheel, and nine further independently programmable Hyperesponse buttons are present.

In short, once gamers are satisfied with these products' performance, then the miracle of wireless mat & mice may enter the mainstream and we'll never have to worry about manually charging a mouse again. The Razer Nommo is the more moderately priced alternative at $99.99/€109.99, and a second version featuring Razer's Chroma lighting at $149.99/€169.99.

In the THX Certified Dolby Nommo Pro (pictured above), Virtual Speaker technology provides an added layer of immersion with simulated 5.1 surround sound. As Razer explains, each speaker comes with an Dupont Kevlar coated driver that projects solid mids and silk-woven tweeters produce smooth and balanced highs. "The Razer Nommo line changes that once and for all". Audio reproduction is based upon custom woven glass fibre 3-inch drivers. Additionally there's a dedicated Nommo Pro mobile app available on Android and iOS.

Also new from Razer is a trio of PC speaker sets, called the Nommo, Nommo Chroma and Nommo Pro. Razer makes another version of the basic Nommo with Razer Chroma lighting and a built-in DAC (USB connectivity) for those that feel such a need.
