What you need to know

  • Razer announced the Orochi V2 featherlight gaming mouse today.
  • The mouse is available in either black, white, and over 100 designs from Razer Customs.
  • The Orochi V2 gets over 900 hours of battery life over Bluetooth LE.

Razer announced the Orochi V2 gaming mouse today. It's a featherlight gaming mouse along the lines of the original Orochi and the Razer Atheris. The Orochi V2 is available today starting at $70.

The Orochi V2 has a surprising number of options for a mouse. In addition to being able to choose between black and white models, you can choose between over 100 designs through Razer Customs. You can also choose to use either AA or AAA batteries. The Orochi V2 has a slot for either type of battery, so you can choose the lighter AAA or get a bit more juice with the AA.

The Orochi V2 has an 18,000 DPI 5G optical sensor with up to 450 inches per second. It also has 40 G acceleration with 99.4% accuracy. In layman's terms, it's light, fast, and a good option for gamers.

You can use the gaming mouse with either 2.4GHz HyperSpeed Wireless low-latency mode or Bluetooth. Razer claims over 900 hours of battery life when connected through Bluetooth and 425 hours when connected through a 2.4GHz connection.

Our executive editor has already spent a few weeks with the gaming mouse. You can read all about it in his in-depth Razer Orochi V2 review (spoilers, he likes it). It looks like the Orochi V2 is set to compete with the best gaming mice.

Alongside the Orochi V2, Razer also announced the Razer Universal Grip Tape, which lets you add grip to a number of accessories.
