Corsair Katar Pro Wireless Mouse Review

By now the bold yellow Corsair packaging will be very familiar to you all. We haven't tired of it, being so different to the rest of the market. As we've said before, hardware such as this is the type that is likely to be found in most electronic retailers so having an attention grabbing design is more important than things like motherboards.
Within the box there is almost nothing at all. No cable. No dongle. Just a one page guide, the mouse and a single AA battery.
The lack of cable and dongle is explained once you take the palm rest off the Katar Pro Wireless. With a AA battery, non-rechargable, there is no need for a cable as you can't recharge the mouse. Equally the dongle is in it's own cubbyhole. This is a mouse you can put in your top pocket in its entirety.
The placement of the battery at the rear moves the weight distribution significantly rearwards, especially as the mouse is so small and light.
On the underside we find two large low-friction feet, the sensor eye, and a three way switch that goes from wireless via dongle, off, or Bluetooth connectivity. Very easy.
In keeping with the simple philosophy behind the Katar Pro Wireless there are just two side buttons and texture on both left and right hand sides. It's unquestionably a compact mouse and perfect if you like your rodents smaller than average.
Without the battery in it's unbelievably light, but even with the weight of a AA battery on board it tips the scales at under 100g.
