Razer debuts its lightest gaming mouse ever, weighing in at 49 grams

Razer today announced its lightest gaming mouse, the Viper Mini Signature Edition. It weighs just 49g, making it 16% lighter than the company’s Viper V2 Pro and one of the lightest mice we’ve seen from a major company.

The mouse uses a magnesium alloy exoskeleton with a semi-hollow interior (slightly resembling the SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless). “We wanted to go beyond the traditional honeycomb design, and that required a material with an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio,” said Razer Industrial Design Manager Charlie Bolton. “After evaluating plastics, carbon fiber and even titanium, we finally chose magnesium alloy for its exceptional properties.”


Razer claims the mouse uses its fastest wireless technology and will be among its best performing wireless mice. It features the Razer Focus Pro 30K Optical Sensor, Gen-3 Optical Mouse Switches, and HyperPolling Wireless with 4000Hz polling rates. Additionally, Razer says the mouse’s battery lasts up to 60 hours and can Fully charge via USB-C in less than 90 minutes. It comes with a pre-paired USB dongle.

The $280 mouse will be available exclusively through Razer’s website starting February 11.
