Razer Atheris is a mouse for notebook users

Mention Razer, and you would most probably have gaming-centric hardware and peripherals sweep across your mind.

Hence, the birth of the Razer Atheris, a wireless notebook mouse that lays claim to having the longest lasting battery life in its class, while delivering lag-free wireless gaming-grade performance.

Sounds too good to be true? Well, it isn’t. After all, Razer’s expertise in the gaming department has spilled over to the corporate side of things, and the result is the Razer Atheris. Specially designed for mobile work as well as play as it outlasts any competition, the Razer Atheris is capable of delivering up to 350 hours of non-stop use on just a couple of of AA batteries. This would be more than enough juice to last even the most boring of all boardroom meetings, and is also perfectly at home to meet the needs of intense gaming sessions on the go in order to alleviate stress at the workplace.
