Razer’s Basilisk Gaming Mouse Line Promises Hundreds of Hours of Battery Life

Razer might have focused a bit more of their publicity efforts on their Razer Phone 2 and laptops lately but, at its core, the company is known for gaming peripherals.

Its latest announcement is all about gaming mice and it’s a welcome change of pace, considering these specs.

The $59 Basilisk X Hyperspeed is incredibly optimized and takes full advantage of its one AA battery. 

The company says you can get 285 hours of battery life on 2.4GHz wireless or up to 450 hours with Bluetooth.

Even better, there’s a switch on the bottom letting you move between 2.4 GHz wireless or Bluetooth. The model features a 16,000 DPI sensor and six buttons.

Then, there’s the $149 Razer Basilisk Ultimate, which is less impressive in terms of battery life but justifies its bigger price with beastly specs.

The gaming mouse has a 20,000 DPI sensor, 11 mappable buttons, pads made out of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) to let it slither across a mousepad smoothly, alongside adjustable liftoff and landing distances so you’re in full control of the cursor during games.

Of course, the Basilisk Ultimate also features Razer’s Chroma LED lighting, with 14 customizable zones that can be individually programmed to your heart’s desire.  

The Basilisk Ultimate doesn’t come close to the hundreds of hours of battery life of the base Basilisk but does reach 100 hours, according to Razer.

It charges with a MicroUSB cable but if you pony up an extra $50 you can also get a magnetic charging dock bundle.

Both Basilisk mice are now on sale at Razer.com.
