Razer has unveiled its latest gaming mouse, a new ultra-light peripheral called the Viper Mini that will retail for an astonishing $280. This puts the Viper Mini way above other high-end Razer mice such as the DeathAdder V3 Pro or Naga Pro, which retail for $150.
For this mouse, Razer is aiming to deliver a product that has a premium feel to it and an absurdly light design. According to the company, the Viper Mini weighs just 49 grams thanks to its magnesium alloy exoskeleton that has a high weight-to-strength ratio. Internally, there’s a Focus Pro 30K optical sensor, Gen-3 mouse switches, and fast charging for when it needs an electrical refill.

The Viper Mini achieves its weight reduction without the traditional trade-offs of a honeycomb mouse design and it has a wireless battery life of up to 60 hours depending on polling rate. Razer claims that the Viper Mini’s optical sensor is up to four times more accurate than its competition, and says that its optical mouse switches have a 90 million click lifecycle.
Razer is complementing the sophisticated design with a premium presentation. The Viper Mini ships in a plush box that includes several accessories such as alcohol prep pads, Corning Gorilla mouse feet, grip tape, and a special Razer HyperPolling dongle for the signature edition that Razer claims has four times more polling intervals than a standard 1000Hz wireless mouse. The Viper Mini launches on February 11, and you can sign up to be notified when the mouse is available to order.
