The Viper Mini Signature Edition is the lightest gaming mouse that Razer has ever made. It’s the culmination of years of craftsmanship, research, and engineering. This ultra-high-end, hyper-lightweight wireless performance gaming mouse is turbocharged with Razer’s best-in-class technologies.
It clocks in at a minuscule 49 grams. You can glide across your mousepad with ease and still hit all the shots. The Head Of Razer’s PC Gaming Division, Barrie Ooi, had this to say about the Viper Mini…
“We set out to create the best lightweight performance gaming mouse. We went beyond our usual design process to look at material selection and alternate industrial designs to create an ultra-durable magnesium alloy exoskeleton chassis in the fan-favorite Viper Mini shape. As a result, the Viper Mini Signature Edition is just 49 grams light with no compromises, making it our lightest mouse ever.”
Through the use of magnesium alloy and injection-molding techniques, it enabled significant weight reduction in the mouse without compromising quality or durability. It all allows for the Viper Mini Signature Edition to be hyper-lightweight while still delivering world-class performance.
Charlie Bolton, Head of Industrial Design at Razer had this to say about the lightweight feel of the Viper Mini…
“The Viper Mini Signature Edition represents the most ambitious design and engineering project we’ve ever undertaken. We wanted to push beyond the traditional honeycomb design and this required a material with an outstanding strength-to-weight ratio. After evaluating plastics, carbon fiber, and even titanium, we ultimately chose magnesium alloy for its exceptional properties.“
The Process Behind The Viper Mini Signature Edition
Each unit has an injection-molded exoskeleton that is then CNC machined and polished. The exoskeleton shell then undergoes passivation to reduce any possible corrosion. Then it’s painted and assembled, and upheld at each step to the highest possible quality.
Inside the unit contains the Focus Pro 30K Optical Sensor, Optical Mouse Switches Gen-3, and HyperPolling Wireless with true 4000 Hz wireless polling rates. It’s not just the lightest mouse that Razer has made, it’s among the fastest. It can fully charge in under 90 minutes thanks to a 2C charging rate, which is four times to peak charging capacity of most other wireless mice.
The Viper Mini Signature Edition comes with a pre-paired HyperPolling Wireless Dongle, a set of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 Mouse Feet, a micro-fiber cleaning cloth, 2 Razer Mouse Grip Tape sets, and 2 alcohol prep pads. It also includes a 3-year extended warranty.
I don’t know about you, but that all sounds like it’s in the running for Razer’s best mouse ever.
