Razer Mamba Wireless (2018) Mouse Review

Rating: 9.0.

Earlier this year I reviewed the Razer Mamba Hyperflux, and at the time I said it was my favourite mouse of the year so far. It used magnetic induction to transmit power from the Firefly mousemat to the mouse itself, negating the need for a battery and thus keeping the weight down. Though I loved the technology and the mouse itself proved to be excellent, it had a fairly major drawback – the mouse and mousemat bundle would set you back a staggering £250.

So what happens when you take the Mamba Hyperflux mouse, ditch the fancy (and expensive) magnetic induction technology and add a standard rechargeable battery instead? Well, you pretty much end up with the Mamba Wireless (2018) that we are reviewing today, with a more affordable price point of £99.99.

That in a nutshell really sums up the Mamba Wireless Razer has released towards the end of 2018. Not to be confused with previous versions – also named just ‘Mamba Wireless’ – that used laser sensors and came with a funky charging stand, this new model uses Razer’s top of the line optical sensor with a slightly less in-your-face lighting configuration as well. At a penny under £100, it’s still not cheap – but is it worth the cash?
