SteelSeries Rival 3 Wireless Gaming Mouse Delivers 400+ Hours of Dual Batteries


SteelSeries has unveiled the wireless version of its popular Rival 3 gaming mouse, which promises over 400 hours of battery life on two AAA batteries. If the original wired version of the mouse is estimated by the manufacturer at $ 30, then the wireless version is $ 20 more expensive. This puts it on a par with offerings such as the Logitech G305 Lightspeed. But the latter only promises up to 250 hours of operation on a single AA battery.

The SteelSeries Rival 3 Wireless wireless mouse can be connected to a computer using either Bluetooth or a USB Type-A transmitter operating at 2.4 GHz. Long-lasting performance for the wireless version of the Rival 3 is provided by SteelSeries Quantum 2.0 technology.

The weight of the mouse without batteries is only 77 grams. With the installation of one battery, it increases to 95 grams, and with two – up to 106 grams.

The Rival 3 Wireless is the first SteelSeries gaming mouse to feature the new TrueMove Air optical sensor technology. It was developed in collaboration with the game sensor manufacturer PixArt and provides a resolution of up to 18,000 CPI (count per inch, or readings per inch). The claimed sensor speed is 450 inches per second (IPS), it can withstand acceleration up to 40G.

Recall that the original version of the Rival 3 mouse uses a TrueMove Core sensor with 8500 CPI, 300 IPS and support for 35G acceleration. Looking at the SteelSeries Sensei Ten mouse, the company also gave the new Rival 3 wireless sensor the ability to work on any surface.

The mouse polling rate is 1000 Hz and the response time is 1 ms when connected to a USB transmitter. The novelty also uses mechanical left and right buttons with a declared resource of work of 60 million clicks. The user is also available five preset profiles, RGB-backlighting, manual adjustment of the sensor and the “rodent” polling rate through the proprietary software SteelSeries Engine.
