To the untrained eye, all gaming mice may look kind of the same - they’re small, they’re (usually) black, they have a little laser light underneath and spend most of their time covered by your hand.
But the big differences come beneath the surface - the weight, the DPI, the customisability and positioning of their buttons.
A lighter mouse, meanwhile, offers faster movements and pin-point accuracy, giving you an edge on your enemies. It also means that you’ll be able to last longer during those extended late-night gaming sessions.
So we’ve gathered together four of the best lightweight mice to boost your PC gaming.

Razer Viper Optical Gaming Mouse
The Razer Viper Optical Gaming Mouse packs high precision and incredible responsiveness into an ultra-lightweight ambidextrous body weighing just 69 grams. Fitted with Razer’s 5G, 16,000 DPI sensor, tracking and accuracy are assured for those pinpoint headshots.
For ultra-fast clicks, the Viper uses Razer’s Optical Mouse Switches, with an infrared light beam, to reduce response times to a match-winning 0.2ms. With eight programmable buttons, and customisable DPI switching, the Viper can be tweaked to suit your play style, with those extra functions mapped to your button of choice.
And by using Razer’s new Speedflex cable, there’s no drag or snag as you swipe across the mouse mat, keeping your aim true and ensuring your clicks hit the mark.
The lightweight chassis, Optical Mouse Switches and precision sensor combine to make the Razer Viper Optical Gaming Mouse a deadly addition to any gamer’s set-up.
ADX M0620 Ultra Lightweight RGB Optical Gaming Mouse
With six DPI levels up to 12,000, this mouse has some serious sensitivity control, so you’ll never have to worry about your twitch-reactions missing the mark. It’s a real looker too, with a honey-combed chassis that feels fantastic in the hand and has been designed to weigh a mere 73g.
The RGB LED lighting looks great, and can be tweaked to any colour you want; couple it up with an RGB mechanical keyboard and you have yourself a visually vibrant package.
The ADX M0620 is also part of a bundle for only £59.99, which also includes a Compact Mechanical keyboard that’s just 60% the size of a regular one.
Logitech G Pro Wireless
The Logitech G Pro is the mouse of choice for many esports pros, so you can be assured that it will serve your gaming needs - hardcore or hobbyist. It’s packed with innovation, including a 1ms report rate, an advanced sensor that goes up to 25,000 DPI and a weight of just 88g.
The outer shell is durable, while the L/R buttons are built to last over 50 million clicks. The travel distance and actuation force of the buttons have been reduced and refined from previous generations. You’ll definitely see the difference in the scoreboards at the end of each match.
The moveable left and right side buttons make the Pro Wireless ambidextrous, so you can have anywhere between zero and four of these buttons. The battery lasts 48 hours with default lighting, and 60 with the lights off, which is plenty enough to get your gaming fix.
