The two sides of the mouse are made of textured rubber for better grip and ergonomics. There are two customizable buttons on the left side.

At the base are 100% PTFE feet for a smoother glide across any surface, the Focus+ sensor, a button to switch between on-board memory profiles and a toggle for wireless, Bluetooth or wired mode.

There are also two gold connectors here for connecting to the charging base, the Razer Mouse Dock Chroma dock (sold separately). The charging base is connected to the PC through a micro-USB connector and works as the wireless receiver.

At the front is the micro USB Type A to charge the mouse using the SpeedFlex cable or to use it in wired mode. The DeathAdder also supports Bluetooth or 2.4 GHz wireless using the included USB dongle.

Features & Performance

The Deathadder V2 features the Razer Focus + optical sensor with a 20,000 DPI, 650 IPS and acceleration of 50G. It also uses optical switches, which are much faster than mechanical ones. Razer’s leading optical sensor boasts one of the highest specs, including smart features like Motion Sync, which tracks mouse movements flawlessly and can be calibrated according to preferences.

There are three modes of operation – via WiFi (2.4 GHz), Bluetooth or cable. All settings can be programmed with Razer Hypershift via the Razer Synapse software. This also applies to the available RGB lighting.

The DeathAdder V2 Pro also features HyperSpeed ​​Wireless technology, which ensures a lightning-fast and stable wireless connection. The existing battery lasts up to 120 hours with on Bluetooth and 70 hours on HyperSpeed before it needs to be charged. This can be done via the included Razer SpeedFlex cable, but also via Razer Mouse Dock Chroma (sold separately).

Each button can also be programmed through Razer Synapse 3 software. For quick access, the DeathAdder V2 Pro can save up to five profiles to its internal memory without any software.

During our two weeks of testing with several games and a suite of editing tools, the DeathAdder V2 Pro felt very responsive with no noticeable lags or delays on wired and 2.4Ghz HyperSpeed mode. However, we did notice occasional lags on Bluetooth mode.

Battery

The Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro offers an extended battery life up to 70 hours of continuous gaming on 2.4Ghz or up to 120 hours on Bluetooth mode. It can also be charged while gaming via the wired connection with the included Razer SpeedFlex cable, or via the Razer Mouse Dock Chroma (sold separately).

During our use, we found the battery to last nearly 50-60 hours with RGB lighting on.

Software

The Razer Synapse software helps with tweaking and adjusting lighting, performance, macros and profiles.

Performance, sensitivity, acceleration and polling rate can be adjusted along with lighting effects from 16.8 million colors that Chroma offers. There are also power options letting you select when to automatically turn off the mouse depending on inactivity

Verdict

The DeathAdder V2 Pro is a high-performance mouse with a design that prioritizes comfort and ergonomics. The sturdy build, high precision and minimal response time make this mouse perfect for enthusiast gamers for those long sessions.
