Zephyr Gaming Mouse: A lightweight gaming mouse with a built-in fan
Zephyr Gaming claims that its eponymously named gaming mouse is different from the others that are already on the market. On the one hand, it is a lightweight wired gaming mouse with RGB lighting, which does not distinguish it from a crowded market. However, the Zephyr Gaming Mouse also includes a small fan, which the company claims can eliminate sweat. The fan has been angled at 45 ° and can be set to 4,000 RPM, 7,000 RPM or 10,000 RPM. The fan is RGB backlit too and can be switched off if you do not need it on.
According to the manufacturer, the Zephyr Gaming Mouse measures 121.60 x 65.15 x 40.70 mm and weighs 68 g. The mouse comes with a 1.8 m cable, which is not detachable. The mouse is based around a Pixart PMW3389 optical sensor, which supports between 100 and 16,000 DPI. This is the same sensor as the one in the Razer DeathAdder Elite. Zephyr Gaming has included 5 DPI presets that can be cycled through using The sensor also provides a maximum acceleration of 40g and a peak speed of 400 IPS. Additionally, the mouse has OMRON switches that the company claims will last up to 50 million clicks. The switches have a polling rate of 1,000 Hz (1 ms), too.
The Zephyr Gaming Mouse has six buttons and a scroll wheel. According to Zephyr Gaming, the mouse will install its drive upon first connection with a machine running Windows 7 or macOS 10.11 or later. The mouse is available to order in three colours for US$79.00 from Kickstarter. Zephyr Gaming expects to ship orders to backers in October.
