At CES 2024, Razer is showcasing a sequel to their debut gaming chair, an 11-port USB-C dock and a light bar for monitors, complete with the signature Chroma RGB lights.

Dubbed the Razer Iskur V2 Gaming Chair, this second iteration builds on its 2020 predecessor. It's the 6D Adjustable and Adaptive Lumbar Support System that's the highlight here. Touted as unique in its class, this lumbar support employs a spring-loaded system that adapts to your body's weight and posture. It doesn't stop there – it also allows you to manually tweak the lumbar area's protrusion and height.

Razer claims to have taken on board insights from ergonomic specialists and the esports community in the development of the Iskur V2. The chair can lean back to 152 degrees, with tilt control at your fingertips. It features high-density foam cushions wrapped in EPU-grade synthetic leather. Razer claims the chair is highly customizable in terms of height, position, and angle, and it comes with a memory foam head cushion.

Retailing at S$949, the Iskur V2 is up for grabs now on Razer's website.

Then there's the Razer USB C Dock, a new 11-port dock that plays well with Windows PCs, Macs, iPads, and Chromebooks. It’s a connectivity powerhouse with four USB-A and two USB-C ports, gigabit ethernet, HDMI, a 3.5mm audio combo jack, and UHS-I SD and microSD slots.

The HDMI port unfortunately is not 2.1 and so only support 4K output at 60Hz. The audio jack is primed for 7.1 surround sound though. Fashioned from aluminium alloy, the dock also offers 85W charging for laptops.

Priced at S$180, the Razer USB C Dock is also available for purchase now.

Razer's affinity for RGB lighting is no secret, and their new Aether Monitor Light Bar is a continuation of that tradition. This mountable gadget features LEDs on both the front and rear.

With a high Color Rendering Index (CRI) score of 95, Razer says it illuminates an area of approximately 60cm x 30cm. Its Chroma RGB lighting is capable of producing over 16.8 million colours and various lighting effects.

The bar also comes with capacitive touch controls for adjusting brightness, colour temperature, and Chroma effects, making it pretty user-friendly since you won’t always have to depend on software controls. It's compatible with the Matter smart home standard, allowing adjustments via the Razer Gamer Room app.

Set to hit the shelves in March, the Aether Monitor Light Bar is priced at S$199.99.
