FAQ

How should I charge my Razer wireless mouse? (applicable to Razer Mamba)
For optimal charging, please set the Razer Mamba to the “off” position while it is charging. Fully depleted batteries may not charge when the mouse is left in the “on” position.

The Razer Mamba uses a high performance Lithium Ion battery. Unlike Nickel-cadmium batteries, Lithium Ion batteries will not develop any type of memory and there is no need to discharge your battery. In fact, fully discharging a Lithium Ion battery can result in damage to the battery itself. If you are not planning on using your mouse for an extended period of time, it is best to turn the mouse off and store it when it is nearly fully charged.
Can I buy spare batteries?
Batteries for the Razer Mamba 2012 can be found here.
How do I use the "surface calibration" tool to adjust the mouse to my specific mouse pad and gaming style?
The auto-calibration feature on the mouse is set to on by default. When plugging your mouse into your system, your mouse should be sitting on the surface you want to use your mouse on for it to calibrate properly to that surface. The distance to which you want the mouse to cut off tracking is adjustable through the software package that comes with the mouse.
How does the 4G dual sensor system work?
The 4G Dual Sensor System calibrates to the specific characteristics of the surface to optimize the mouse's tracking abilities to that specific surface and minimizes the amount of displacement caused by erratic movement when lifting up and placing down the mouse on the surface. The distance from the surface that the mouse cuts off tracking is customizable to the level that the user is comfortable with through the software included with the mouse.
How long does a fully charged battery last?
The new battery can support up to 16 hours of continuous gaming.
If I already have a Mamba  can I trade it in for the new Mamba 2012?
Unfortunately, we do not allow trade-ins at the moment however; do subscribe to our newsletter or visit our website to get the latest news and best deals.
If I have the original Mamba will the Mamba 2012 drivers have an effect on the performance of my original?
The Mamba 2012 drivers are backwards compatible with the original Mamba on the PC. Mac users however, will still have to use the drivers that are available for the original Mamba as the Mamba 2012 Mac drivers are not compatible.
My Mamba 2012  takes a long time to load or update the configurator as it loads/saves profiles that I am not currently using. How can I fix this?
The load time can be decreased by removing any un-used profiles. This is easily done by loading the configurator and clicking the "Manage Profiles" tab. From here simply right click on each profile you are not using and click delete; once completed hit apply, then ok.
My mouse doesn't work on my multi colored mouse pad.  What can I do?
The calibration feature was designed to function on a surface with a certain level of uniformity across.  You can either switch off the calibration feature or change to a non multi-colored mouse pad.
My mouse stops working when I switch from Goliathus to Ironclad.  What can I do?
The 4G Dual Sensor System is designed to function optimally when it is calibrated to a specific surface. In the event that you switch surface, just recalibrate the mouse by unplugging the mouse from the USB port and then plugging the mouse back in while the mouse is on the pad you wish to use.
What is the difference between the original Mamba and the new Mamba 2012?
The Mamba 2012 is not just a rehash of the original Mamba with a new label and fancy visuals. Razer has fitted the Mamba 2012 with the new 4G Dual Sensor technology to maximize its tracking precision. It is now capable of up to 6400 DPI over its 5600 DPI predecessor. In addition to the upgraded sensors, The Mamba 2012 has improved battery life and sports a multi-colored LED for personal customization.
When should I enable the Razer Mamba 2012's 4G Dual sensor system?
You should enable the 4G Dual sensor system when you want to have the most precise tracking possible. However, enabling this feature will require you to use the Razer Mamba 2012 with an evenly textured, single colored mouse pad or a surface with similar properties.
Why do you need two sensors on the mouse?
The use of the optical sensor allows the mouse to calibrate the laser sensor to the surface that the mouse is being used on, by measuring and capturing the characteristics of that surface. This improves overall tracking and provides up to 10 times the surface detection. It also allows the user to adjust the distance for tracking to cut off during mouse lift off.

How do I maintain my Razer Mouse for optimum performance?
Once a month we recommend you unplug the mouse from the USB port and clean the lens below the mouse with a soft cloth or cotton swab. Use a little warm water but no soap or harsh cleaning agents. To get the ultimate experience in movement and control, we highly recommend a premium mouse surface from Razer. Some surfaces can cause the mouse feet to wear excessively and rapidly.

Razer uses digital scopes and USB analyzers connected directly to the motherboard  to obtain real and accurate measurements of polling rates.
