About a year ago we reviewed Razer’s Viper Ultimate and it turned out to be a great wireless gaming mouse. Weighing in at just 74 grams, excellent performance and long battery life, it earned a score of 10 out of 10 and our Recommended Award! Well, Razer is back with the Viper V2 Pro, which, as the same suggests, is really aimed at the pro. Razer was able to reduce the weight of this wireless mouse to 58 grams, which is really impressive for a wireless mouse. Gone are the charging dock, RGB lighting, and Razer made some other tweaks to not only reduce weight but improve overall feel and performance. You do get Razer’s new Focus Pro 30K optical sensor, their Gen3 optical mouse switches, and a lighter, more efficient battery. Is this the ultimate lightweight wireless mouse? Read on as we find out!
Special thanks to Razer for submitting the Viper V2 Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse for review.
Specifications vs Viper Ultimate
The Viper V2 Pro comes in Razer’s typical retail packaging. The front of the box features a picture of the mouse and lists some of its key features. If you scroll to the back there is another photo and even more features are detailed.
To get everything out of the box, we have the Razer V2 Pro mouse, USB-C to USB-A cable, USB wireless dongle + dongle adapter, a set of mouse grips, user manual and registration card.
The included cable is Razer’s Speedflex cable, which is very lightweight. The supplied cable can be used to charge the mouse, use it in wired mode or can be used with the dongle adapter. Unlike the Viper Ultimate, which has a rubber side grip, Razer has decided to make the grips optional. This way you have handles for the sides as well as the two main buttons. These grips add about 0.4-0.5 g of weight each.
