It seems like gaming accessory manufacturers have been scrambling to release their own takes on the “wirelessly charging mouse pad” concept that was started by Logitech’s Powerplay mouse pad last June. At CES 2018, various takes on the concept from Mad Catz and Corsair were seen. Now, it’s time for Razer to take as shot at it with its new HyperFlux technology.
The company is starting off with one pair of products, the Razer Mamba HyperFlux mouse and the Razer Firefly HyperFlux mouse pad, both of which are just updated versions of existing Razer products, complete with the Razer Chroma lighting.
The Mamba HyperFlux doesn’t have a battery on board, unlike the original Mamba wireless mouse. It’s powered entirely by the included Firefly HyperFlux mouse pad instead, giving you a wireless mouse without the extra weight of a battery. The mouse pad does still need to be plugged into your computer though. You’ll also be able to directly connect the Mamba HyperFlux through a Micro USB cable so that you can still use it when you’re away from your Firefly HyperFlux pad.
Obviously, the HyperFlux technology is proprietary to Razer. And like the other versions of the technology from Mad Catz and Logitech, each can only be used with the specific company’s products and don’t support other wireless charging standards, like Qi.
The Razer Mamba HyperFlux and Firefly HyperFlux will be sold in a bundle together for $249.99 sometime in the first quarter of 2018.
