IOGEAR's Kaliber Gaming line delivers products with the most sought after features, while also providing practical solutions to enhance performance. In this regard, the new Kaliber Gaming Chimera M2 Wired/Wireless Dual Mode Mouse absolutely shines, marrying the performance of a high-end gaming mouse with the convenience of a wireless desktop mouse. Wired mice are the standard when it comes to gaming, but not because gamers like to be tethered, but rather because nothing is faster than a wired connection. It is for that exact reason the Chimera M2 employs a 1,000rps wired connection and high-resolution optical sensor with up to 20G of acceleration and 60 inch-per-second tracking, for the greatest possible advantage when gaming.
Having that high-speed performance is great, but even the most hardcore gamers eventually take a breather to check email, surf the web, or update social media. Why deal with the inconvenience of being tethered all the time? Well, with the Chimera M2 you can cut the tether and switch to wireless operation in seconds, providing more freedom and convenience than a wired mouse ever could.
The Chimera M2 7-button precision gaming mouse features three programmable buttons, plus two adjust on-the-fly DPI buttons that are perfect for shifting between speedy movements and controlled aiming. The two side buttons and wheel button are programmable to activate gaming macros or desktop shortcuts. The free downloadable Windows driver allows custom programming functions for three of the mouse's 7 buttons. With a single press of a macro button you can execute commands that would normally be much more difficult, and gain a huge advantage over the competition. You can set mouse buttons to use the melee weapon, throw grenades, crouch, change weapons, etc.- without using the keyboard, so you can keep your fingers glued to the WASD keys.
The Chimera M2 utilizes two different sensors for two operating modes: Office and Gaming. In Office Mode, the Chimera M2 uses an energy efficient IR sensor to deliver maximum runtime for wireless operation. Office Mode allows you to perform those daily tasks while remaining completely untethered, and can last weeks between charges depending upon use. In Gaming Mode, the Chimera M2 switches over to its high-speed, high-resolution optical sensor, and delivers a massive increase in accuracy and agility to supercharge your gaming experience.
The Chimera M2 can be used both wired and wirelessly. The charging dock functions as a 2.4GHz wireless receiver and allows you to use the mouse from up to 33ft away. When it comes to extended game play, the included micro USB cable can be plugged directly into the mouse for a wired operating mode. This wired mode provides a more dynamic gaming experience by increasing the report rate to 1000 RPS - as fast as any premium gaming mouse on the market today.
An internal rechargeable battery means you never need to deal with replacing batteries! In fact, the energy saving IR sensor used for wireless mode combined with the auto-sleep/wake function allows the Chimera M2 to go days or even weeks without recharging. It really doesn't get a whole lot more convenient than that- especially for a mouse with a full blown gaming alter ego.
Chimera M2 features an arched housing that feels natural when using either a palm style or claw style mouse grip, making it perfect for more than 80% of gamers. The ergonomic shape not only gives it a great feel, but also provides maximum comfort for hours of use. This ergonomic design relieves the strains and stresses to your wrist created by traditional mice.
