Corsair cuts the wires with its latest gaming peripheral lineup

If you're eager to go completely wireless with your PC gaming setup, Corsair's latest batch of peripherals could fit the bill. { The company has taken to CES 2018 with a portfolio of wire-free goodies for gamers, including a wireless keyboard and keyboard, a wireless charging mouse pad, and even a wireless gaming lapboard for cable-free couch gaming.

At the top of the ticket is the new K63 Wireless Mechanical Keyboard, which comes equipped with Cherry MX Red mechanical switches. What's impressive, however, is that the keyboard includes a battery that can go for up to 75 hours on a single charge. And yes, there's backlighting here as well, but it's limited to a static blue color, rather than the multicolor RGB setups you'll see on other keyboards. Still, you can set the keyboard to respond to your keypresses with dynamic visuals using Corsairs Utility Engine (CUE) software.

In addition to the keyboard, Corsair has taken the wraps off of the Dark Core RGB SE, a wireless mouse with, as the name suggests, RGB lighting. The highlight of the Dark Core RGB SE, however, is that it includes Qi wireless charging support. That makes it a solid fit for one of Corsair's other new peripherals, the MM1000 mousepad, which has a dedicated wireless charging spot so you can charge up your mouse without ever having to plug it in. This is in addition to the standard Dark Core RBG (non-SE), which doesn't include Qi charging, but features up to 24 hours of battery life.

Lastly, if you're down to do a little couch gaming, Corsair has launched a companion device, the K63 Wireless Gaming Lapboard. The device packs a dedicated slot in which you can place the K63 keyboard so it doesn't move. That's flanked by a mousepad, and the whole thing is surrounded by a memory foam cushion that sits in your lap.

Corsair says that the K63 keyboard is available now from retailers and direct from Corsair's web store for $109.99 by itself and $159.99 as a combo with the lapboard. The Dark Core gaming mice and MM1000 Qi charging mouse pad will be available later in January, Corsair says. Pricing isn't yet available for either mouse or the mouse pad.
