I agree. A little lever to press for removing the battery would have been nice. Push the lever and the battery pops out. If they add a wired option I would like to see it done magnetically like the X8 does. I think Razer and Logitech got it wrong. Even a miniature jack would be better than the types they selected (or sub-miniature). Both dual batteries and a cable would be the best of both worlds. I have the palmrest all the way forward, so I can grip the battery on top and bottom and pull it out, but people who adjust it rearward may have a problem.

Hmmm. I checked the glide pad and it looks like all the pictures I've seen. It has that half opening I think they added for the RAT9 (filter?), and it's lined up with the "0" marking on the bottom. Is there any way to tell?

I did read a lot of the other posts in the thread, but I admit I didn't read all of them.

Edit: I just completed reading the entire thread. I feel I just have to say something in defense of the RAT 9. Everyone seems to have a hate-on for it.

1. There is zero lag associated with the wireless version RAT. I've used wired and wireless and I am seeing no lag issues at all. Considering how fast the polling is on mice like this I don't see where any lag would come from. However, to alleviate any concern I have tried it side by side with a Naga and there is NO LAG.

2: Battery issues. I was using an MX Revolution for about 4 or so years and it would go almost a week without needing to be recharged under moderate use. It still gets two days of heavy use and needs to be recharged sometime on the third day. With the RAT 9 I get about 7-8 hours of non stop gaming out of a battery before I have to swap it. The G700 gave me between 4 and 5, and the Mamba I returned gave just over 5. Both use a NmH battery, which is inferior to lithium. I wanted to try the MS Sidewinder X8 cordless, but I tried the RAT 9 after I returned the Mamba and was so happy with it I kept it. MS claims that the Sidewinder X8 gets 30 hours and some reviewers have said they had to charge "every other day" making it a fairly good choice. The RAT 9 is a much shorter use/recharge cycle but it also polls at up to 1000Hz (which is one of the reasons it has no lag) which uses a lot more battery power, however the X8 polls at a high rate as well so I don't know why they get a better battery life. Perhaps they are using a larger capacity battery. The RAT 9 battery is about half the weight or less of a regular NmH AA battery. As for swapping it literally takes me less than five seconds to change the battery. Again, literally, it's no effort or problem. It certainly takes less effort and concentration than plugging the charging wire into either the Mamba or the G700 (I hear the Sidewinder X8 is nice in this respect).

For 90% of "gamers" the RAT mice are a great choice. I disagree with those who complain about the ergonomics but I guess that is partially subjective. So much about mouse preference is subjective it's hard to recommend what you like to others. Not everyone agrees on what's best in a mouse.

Having said that, I like my RAT 9 because it's wireless, so perhaps I have a completely different perspective than many others have. I was specifically looking for a good wireless mouse, and this is what I picked (still with regrets over not trying an X8). Wired mice are great but I just got tired of the wire, and since competitive wireless were available....

lol you aren't missing a thing with the x8, its in my cheap mice pile now and i just use it at work for my laptop. not really that comfortable and feels cheap. R.A.T. 9 is a much better option

Isn't that the same laser Logitech uses? I hear it tracks better than the one in the RATs.
