Best Wireless Ultralight Gaming Mouse

Best Wireless Ultralight Gaming Mouse

Ultralight gaming mice are commonplace today, but when you have to deal with the complexities of adding a wireless module and battery, their numbers are whittled down. In this category, we'll be comparing factors like weight, build quality, shape, and ease-of-use of software. Ultimately, because most mice today already have flawless sensors, it'll come down to what the brand has done to differentiate itself from the crowd and details like the quality of the switches, mouse feet and battery life.

To make the cut, the mouse has to be released in 2020 and has to be the brand's flagship ultralight wireless offering.

 

Nominees:

  • Glorious Model O Wireless
  • Logitech G Pro X Superlight Wireless
  • Razer Viper Ultimate

 

And the winner is...

Razer Viper Ultimate

This year, the best overall wireless ultralight gaming mouse goes to the Razer Viper Ultimate because of its all-around stellar performance and rich feature set. 

For starters, you get an advanced 20,000DPI Focus+ optical sensor with Smart Tracking and Motion Sync. The former automatically calibrates the sensor for the particular surface you're using it on, while the latter syncs the sensor's signals at the same intervals that your PC extracts information. Few brands make the effort to push sensor tech in this way, and the mouse impresses in other areas as well. 

Battery life is excellent, and Razer has fixed the scratchy feet on the original Viper with smooth, pure PTFE feet. It's got a comfortable, ambidextrous shape that fits most grip styles, and is the only mouse of the lot to come with a charging dock with its own set of LEDs. Compared to the Glorious Model O Wireless and Logitech G Pro X Superlight Wireless, the Razer Viper Ultimate is the most well-rounded, boasting solid build quality, crisp optical switches, and polished, powerful software. The charging cord is also a flexible and supple paracord-style cable, which the Logitech G Pro X Superlight Wireless lacks.

Overall, the Razer Viper Ultimate is the best wireless gaming mouse you can get today. At S$239.90, it's not cheap, but it checks all the right boxes and outdoes the competition with a bevvy of neat, innovative technologies and comprehensive features.
