Razer is well known for their gaming peripherals some of which we’ve reviewed right here on this website. But Razer isn’t just about gaming, they’re also about productivity combined with their performance. So the company just announced the Razer Atheris. Razer claims the Atheris is the “ultimate wireless notebook mouse with the world’s longest-lasting battery life.” The Atheris is also supposed to deliver gaming-grade performance for better productivity.
Razer says this mouse is great both for gaming and the board room and the claimed 350-hours of battery life from two AA batteries is crazy. Razer says the mouse is sporting their proprietary wireless Adaptive Frequency Technology (AFT) which provides excellent transmission for a reliable and stable connection. AFT connectivity is achieved through a small USB dongle that stores inside the mouse when not in use.
It has a 7200 DPI optical sensor which the company says helps it move across multiple high-resolution monitors with ease. The design is also made to fit both right and left handed users so that’s certainly a plus for many.
“We created the Razer Atheris to be the ultimate mobile productivity mouse – allowing users to bring their A-game in any situation whether it’s in the boardroom or the gaming arena,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “The Razer Atheris outperforms and outlasts the competition with unparalleled reliability.”

You’ll be able to get one of these babies retail worldwide in Q4 of this year or you can get it now from the Razer store, it’s going to set you back around $49.99USD/€59.99. I’d be willing to bet they’ll show up on Amazon soon at an even lower price, so may be worth waiting a bit. Still, it looks like a nice productivity mouse that can be used for play when you’re wanting to waste some time at work.Source: Razer
