Today the wireless charging movement got one more boost, this time from the world of gaming. The technology giant Razer (That has a very loyal following) as a game-first hardware company is announcing Hyperflux in a new mouse, the Razer Mamba HyperFlux and a corresponding matt, this is new wireless power technology.
The price of the Razer HyperFlux mouse is $249.99 and the mouse and matt, will be launched in the first quarter of this year.
Razer is not known for making entirely new products which no one has ever seen before. But Razer is generally very good at building and optimizing typical hardware in a way that makes it very useful and appealing to gaming enthusiasts.
The HyperFlux Mamba is very light and moves faster, making it especially good for gaming because according to Razer it is built using a magnetic field to transfer power to the mouse in real time rather than charging the battery as many other wireless architectures are built today (Like for phones).
The Razer company claims that the wireless charging sans-battery is a world-first. “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,” said Min-Liang Tan the co-founder and CEO of Razer. “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.”
It has been announced during CES in Las Vegas, the new HyperFlux mouse also uses Razer’s Adaptive Frequency Technology for its signal strength, which according to Razer is more stable. Its other features include a 16,000 dots-per-inch (DPI) 5G optical sensor for finer movements. The matt is two-sided to allow for faster (hard side) or finer, slower (cloth side) movements. It is also equipped with Razer’s now ubiquitous Chroma lighting for color effects that match the rest of Razer’s kit. Razer is also using the show to show off concept ideas that may or may not ever make it to the market, but they are interesting to consider as reference ideas where Razer is playing with themes that it might eventually use elsewhere.
