If you travel and game a lot with your gaming laptop, then you’d normally opt for a light, compact, wireless gaming mouse.
Powered by just a single AA battery, this new Razer Orochi V2 ultra-lightweight wireless gaming mouse can survive up to 900 hours (on Bluetooth mode) or 425 hours on wireless, thanks to the ultra-low-latency Razer HyperSpeed Wireless technology. It is definitely small enough to be slip into your pocket or a carry bag.
Plus, it only weighs 60 grams (without the battery) and the less weight you have on your carry bag, the easier it is to fit other things for a flight.
The original Razer Orochi (which I reviewed) was launched back in 2009. After more than a decade, Orochi fans can now enjoy the new V2, equipped with all the latest Razer’s technology like the 5G Advanced Optical Sensor (450 IPS, 18000 DPI) and 2nd Gen Razer Mechanical Mouse Switches (up to 60 million clicks lifespan).
It has 6 programmable buttons customisable through Razer Synapse, on-board memory profile, but sadly (yet understandable) missing RGB lights.
And there’s more. The mouse fits either a AA or AAA battery so if you rather have a heavier-feel, the AA battery should be the battery of choice plus you get a bit more battery life.
Design wise, Razer Orochi V2 is made for all types of grips – palm, claw, and fingertip. This is a small mouse for sure, so if you have big hands and a palm grip user, I’d still recommend to just grab the DeathAdder V2 Pro or Basilisk Ultimate instead.
