About this deal

I love that the all of the areas that you grip don't have any holes in them, and that Xtrfy has also coated the internals to provide water and dust protection. The mouse creaks a little when held tightly, and the cable has frayed slightly where it rubbed on the sharp edge of a crummy mouse pad, but neither are genuine issues - I have zero qualms about the build quality here. The mouse can be configured entirely using on-board controls too, no software required. By default, you can adjust the lift-off distance, debounce delay and DPI setting, as well as customise everything about the lighting, from effect and colour to brightness and speed. This works nicely, and the key used for making most changes can be set as the F11 key afterwards so that it can be rebound to be used in games - handy! Note: for the purposes of this article, we consider an ultra-light mouse as any mouse that weighs 80 grams or below - although the lightest mice often weigh considerably less. Both honeycomb and traditional body gaming mice are eligible for inclusion. For comparison's sake, most standard mice weigh at least 100 grams; the popular Logitech G502 Hero weighs over 120 grams.

It's a great option if you prefer an ultra-light version of a more ergonomic mouse with plenty of programmable inputs. For a mouse with even more programmable buttons, the SteelSeries Aerox 9 Wireless is designed for MMO/MOBA gaming. It has a full 12-button side panel and honeycomb-shaped cutouts in its shell to help reduce its weight. That said, it's a higher-priced option without a cheaper wired-only version available. There's a new type of gaming mouse on the market: the ultra-light. These lightweight mice use honeycomb designs and other measures to cut mass wherever possible, making for a more manoeuvrable mouse that's easier to aim. Following the first releases by specialists like Glorious and Finalmouse, almost every major brand now has at least one ultra-light mice of their own with new sizes, shapes and features. Some of these mice even forgo the holey look, with internal modifications to bring weight down and an intact outer shell. After extensive testing of every ultra-light mouse in FPS games like Warzone 2.0, Valorant and CSGO, we're ready to make our recommendations. If you don't like the Viper's low-profile shape, you may prefer the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT. It weighs virtually the same and is shaped to accommodate a wider variety of hand shapes and sizes. However, its sensor isn't quite as advanced, its button switches aren't as durable, and it uses an outdated micro-USB cable for charging instead of the Razer's newer USB-C port. Without further ado, here are the best ultra-light gaming mice on the market: Best ultra-light mouse 2023For example, my hand size is 200mm x 100mm, so I personally look for mice that are around 120mm x 60mm. Different grip styles can also influence your ideal mouse size; claw and fingertip grips will hover around the 60 per cent mark, while palm grips are flatter and therefore mice that are closer to 70 per cent of your hand size will feel more comfortable. Your hand size will determine how comfortable a given mouse is to use. Most ultra-light mice will be perfectly usable for the vast majority of hand sizes, but if you have particularly large or small hands then opting for a matching mouse may offer the best results. To find your hand size, keep your fingers together and measure from the tip of your longest finger to your wrist. Here's how the mice rank in terms of weight alone, plus some other key specifications - such as the sensor on board and dimensions. We've also classified the designs in two dimensions: "honeycomb" or "traditional" based on whether they have external holes and "ambidextrous" or "ergonomic" based on whether the left and right sides of the mouse are similar shapes. Symmetric mice are the only viable option for left-handers, but many right-handers prefer this style as well. Mouse

The HyperX Pulsefire Haste 2 is a remarkable wired alternative that's typically available for around the same price as the GLORIOUS Model I. It's almost 20g lighter and has a more traditional FPS-focused design. Impressively, it also supports a maximum polling rate of 8000Hz. However, by going with the HyperX, you're giving up wireless connectivity, and it doesn't have nearly as many programmable buttons. The Pwnage StormBreaker performs just as well as the Razer Viper V2 Pro but has a somewhat larger, right-handed shape. This mouse also natively supports a higher maximum polling rate of 2000Hz, and its magnesium alloy body design makes it slightly lighter. Its major downside is that its magnesium alloy body has cutouts that make it less comfortable without adding grip tape, and it's quite a bit more expensive than the Viper V2 Pro.I don't think it matters. I've been testing ultra-light mice since May 2019 and I can't see any visible dust or dirt in even my oldest mice. I also haven't noticed any change in performance over time. If I do, I will update this article accordingly. Watch the latest DF Weekly, where Digital Foundry staff discuss the hottest gaming technology news.

The Bolt also comes with highly-regarded Kailh 8.0 switches and a solid optical sensor, the PixArt 3370; the design is comfortable and ambidextrous albeit without side buttons on each side, meaning it's not truly suitable for left-handers. Battery life is also reasonable, thanks to the modest RGB lighting in the scroll wheel, with a quoted 110 hours for 2.4GHz and 210 hours on Bluetooth; USB-C charging is via a provided paracord cable. The one annoyance is that there's no place to insert the 2.4GHz wireless dongle into the mouse itself, making this better for use at home than on the go. Furthermore, there aren't really any components under the holes that would be affected by dirt - just a PCB and potentially RGB lighting, with moving elements like button switches generally covered up. I wouldn't advise eating messy foods or spilling drinks onto an ultra-light mouse, but I wouldn't recommend that with any other kind of computer peripheral either. If you're concerned about this, consider traditional full-body mice like the Roccat Kone Pure Ultra, Endgame Gear XM1 or Logitech G Pro Wireless.
