I've got new questions about the recharging of the wireless mice.

1. Do I have to shut 'off' the mouse in order to charge it on it's charging dock? Does it charge if kept in 'on' mode?

2. If the computer goes to sleep mode, does it still charge?

3. When the computer is turned off during the day, is it charging on the dock?

I was thinking that if my computer goes into sleep mode within 30mins like I have it set up, it would have only charged it for 30mins.

Also when I go to work if the computer is turned off like I like to have it, I'm not getting it charged and when I get home may run out of battery life while in use since it didn't charge.

It charges in 'off' or 'on'.

I'm interested to hear your thoughts on it. I've been on the fence about my Lachesis and probably will get a Mamba to compare.

Well after a few days of owning the Razer Mamba I do like it being a big difference to what I was previously using.

I was using a two year old Logitech basic wireless mouse which ran on batteries only. Would go through about four batteries a month. Aprrox $5 per month for $60 per year to use.

The feel of the mouse is a very nice texture, not glossy. The grip feels solid and comfortable to the palm or claw grip. Definitely can tell it's a higher quality mouse.

The clicking is very responsive with a fast response and click back. Quite as well.

I didn't realize how sensitive 5600 DPI is on a mouse until owning one. The on-the-fly buttons on top of the mouse however allow me to change the sensitivity during gaming very easily. Going into sniper mode needs a lot less DPI but in shooting frenzy I'm much more responsive than before.

The charging dock, now that I know more about it, is no problem and is fully charged after three hours from a complete drain. I don't see ever running out of battery power unless I forget to leave it back on the charger either when I go to sleep or work. If I do forget, the charger dock USB connection will allow me to run it wired and simultaneously charge it should it come down to that.

Now the Razer Imperator does the exact same thing with exact same amount of buttons and DPI except it's wired. I could have purchased it at $59.99 usd instead of the Mamba for $129.99 and saved $60. So you have to ask yourself is the extra money worth it for wireless connection to you? What I don't know is if the feel and weight of the Razer Imperator is the same.

One thing that doesn't make much difference, but worth pointing out, is that on the wire it's 3.5Ghz and while wireless it's actually running at 2.4Ghz frequency.

The software is easy to use and understand. The only minor thing is when you make a change it takes almost 30 seconds before your mouse responds as it reconfigures as you apply your new settings. Not really a big deal.

I've experienced maybe once a day a slight two second glitch where the pointer isn't responsive when moving the mouse. Happened a couple times but nothing to deter you from purchase as it's so minor and only happens after non-use for a while when you come back to your mouse. Again in three days maybe happened twice.

I've tried to outweigh to myself should I bring it back and get some money back at half the cost but the wireless solution is the biggest freedom on my desktop albeit at a luxury extra cost. However it will pay itself off on the difference in one year after not having to replace batteries as I used to.

The only other wireless mouse would be the Logitech G700 as stated in previous post on this thread with great options and only $30 less than the Razer Mamba.

Last thing I like as a side note is the aesthetics on my desktop with lighting on the mouse wheel and charging dock together with my Razer Anansi keyboard back lighting. With my lit up view of my rig inside from side glass tower it's a very pleasing looking gaming rig as a whole to come home from work to. biggrin.gif

Awesome, thanks for sharing! +rep

I'm going to try out the Mamba. I have an Amazon gift card for $75 so basically I can get one for $40 (or return it and get something else and a mousemat instead).
