Razer Release the Orochi V2 Gaming Mouse With HyperSpeed Technology
Peter Donnell / 2 weeks ago
Razer has announced their new Orochi V2 gaming mouse! The compact, ultra-lightweight wireless gaming mouse is capable of over 900 hours of use from a single AA battery, so even the most enthusiastic user will not need a fresh battery for a couple of months. The Orochi V2 comes equipped with ultra-low-latency Razer HyperSpeed Wireless technology and 2nd-gen Razer Mechanical Mouse Switches, making it a fairly high-end approach to the humble wireless mouse.
Razer Release the Orochi V2 Gaming Mouse
The Orochi V2 was designed to deliver gamers a portable, high-performance gaming mouse that is small enough to slip into the pocket or in a carry bag. While I prefer a larger mouse myself, I can certainly see the market for something a little more portable. Plus, Razer HyperSpeed multi-device support allows gamers to connect their Razer Orochi V2 and wireless keyboard to a single USB dongle, saving up an additional USB port for other purposes, which is a huge advantage on some laptops or notebooks.

“Gamers shouldn’t have to sacrifice performance for portability,” said Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Peripherals Business Unit. “The Orochi V2 uses state-of-the-art gaming-grade components combined with unique lightweight design features, making it the ideal portable gaming mouse.”

Ultra-lightweight universal design for all grip styles

The tapered ends on the Orochi V2 provide a solid grip for quick, controlled flicks, while a raised back arch ensures a secure palm fit for less fatigue in extended sessions.
