The joystick comes with two different caps of different lengths for varying comfort levels. If you’d rather use the mouse without it there’s even a cover for it.

Some other features:

  • Translucent plastic top shell with a matte finish
  • Main buttons and palm rest(USB dongle stored underneath) attached via magnets
  • Each button is spring-loaded to prevent slack for fastest response
  • Textured ergonomic surface for grip
  • Five customizable buttons
  • “Light pipe” around the front of the mouse and RGB LEDs in the mouse wheel
  • All RGB configurable with “Armoury II” software
  • Compatible with Aura Sync
  • Omron swtiches
  • Customizable logo
  • 2.4Ghz RF
  • Up to 48 hours of battery life with RGBs on or 79 hours off
  • Qi-compatible charging or USB 3.0

The Chakram will be available in 2020 and as of yet pricing is unannounced.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
