Can be used for a long time with one AA battery

Basilisk V3

The key point is how long it lasts, but with a 2.4GHz connection it can last for 285 hours, and with a Bluetooth connection it can last for 535 hours.

If it is a rechargeable type, you may not realize that the battery is about to run out, and then suddenly it stops working, only to find out that the battery has run out.

With Basilisk V3

You can simply replace the battery when it runs out, so there is no need to connect a cable at any time.

Reduce battery consumption with sleep mode

Razer Synapse allows you to set the idle time before entering sleep mode. You can freely set the time between 1 minute and 15 minutes, so if you don't want to waste battery as much as possible, set it to 1 minute.

Connection methods are 2.4GHz wireless and Bluetooth

Basilisk V3 X Hyperspeed is a completely wireless gaming mouse and cannot be connected via wire.

Razer's Hyperspeed Wireless 2.4GHz wireless system allows you to play games with low latency.

In the case of Bluetooth, you may experience a slight delay, but it can be used for a longer period of time, so it may be better to use it for video editing, etc., where delay is not a big concern.

Connect both mouse and keyboard with one dongle

Razer's Hyperspeed compatible mouse and keyboard can be connected together in one dongle.

This benefit is limited to those who own Razer's wireless keyboard, but since you only need one dongle, you can free up a USB port.

This dongle can be stored inside the mouse body, which greatly reduces the risk of losing it when carrying it around.

9 buttons in total

There are 9 buttons in total, each of which can be programmed. I think 9 pieces is an average number among gaming mice.

There are nine buttons in total, one on each side, wheel click, scroll up, scroll down, DPI cycle button, and three buttons on the side.

This mouse is asymmetrical, with side buttons only on the left side, so it is not suitable for people who prefer to use it with their left hand.

The back side is equipped with a 5G high-performance sensor and a slider switch. The slider switch allows you to switch between Bluetooth connection and 2.4GHz wireless connection.

The default DPI cycles are 400,800,1600,3200,6400. This setting can be customized with software called Razer Synapse, and the maximum DPI is 18,000. It has the advantage of being able to change the DPI to suit your game or work with the touch of a button.

Weighs a little heavy at 110g

The Basilisk V3 X Hyperspeed weighs 110g, which seems a little heavy compared to other gaming mice.

It may not be suitable for people who want an ultra-lightweight mouse weighing around 50g. Also, if you play games such as FPS that require intense mouse movement, you may want to look for something a little lighter.

Wheels support RGB lights

Many gaming mice equipped with RGB lights have their wheels and manufacturer's logos illuminated, but the Basilisk V3 X Hyperspeed has RGB lights only on its wheels.

At first glance, it may seem less cool, but even if the logo is lit, the logo becomes invisible while you are using it, which can waste battery power.

I think that the benefit of not having a flashing logo is that it consumes less battery and can be used for a longer period of time.

If you want to turn off RGB lighting, you can turn it on and off using a software called Razer Synapse, so install it. You can also adjust the brightness and color.

The price on the Razer official website is 11,880 yen

Looking at the price on the Razer official website, it is 11,880 yen.

Although it is more expensive than gaming mice that are said to have good cost performance, you can buy it for about 10,000 yen, so I think the price is neither too expensive nor too cheap.

Summary: Recommended for people who don't like rechargeable devices

We have summarized the features of Basilisk V3 X Hyperspeed, and this mouse is recommended for those who don't like rechargeable mice.

Although it does take some time to replace the batteries, it is not very frequent and only requires one AA battery, so it does not cost much.

It does have the disadvantage of being a little heavy, but if you don't like rechargeables, you might want to give it a try.
