Wireless mice can even have some advantages over your conventional wired clicker. You don’t get any cable drag, which can help with accuracy in FPS games like CS:GO or Valorant. They’re more aesthetically-pleasing too, doing away with wires, so you can better manage cables in your gaming setup.

We’ve rounded up the wireless gaming mice that deserve a spot on the best gaming desk in 2022, ranging from high-end clickers for aspiring pros, to those that won’t break the bank while still offering a great gaming experience. Whether you want a wireless gaming mouse designed for a specific genre, such as strategy games or MOBA games, something more ergonomic, or you’re looking for a great left handed gaming mouse, there’s something here for everyone. No matter which one you choose, all the mice listed here will give a great gaming experience. Oh, and if you’re actually not all that bothered about wires, then you can check out our overall picks for the best gaming mouse.

Corsair Sabre RGB Pro Wireless

The best wireless gaming mouse is the Corsair Sabre RGB Pro Wireless.

The Corsair Sabre RGB Pro Wireless is a truly great example of how great wireless gaming mice can be. It comes with a TrueMove 3+ Dual sensor, supporting report rates as fast as 0.5ms, 2,000Hz polling rate, and a max DPI of 26,000. With 90 hours battery life, you’ll only occasionally need to charge this reliable rodent, which is conveniently taken care of via a USB-C port at the head of the mouse.

At just 79g, it’s shockingly lightweight for a wireless mouse, and you shouldn’t ever feel dragged down by Corsair’s clicker. It’s extremely comfortable as well, and is a solid fit for most hand sizes and grip styles. Plus, Corsair iCue ranks among the best peripheral software out there, making customising the six programmable buttons or RGB on the Corsair Sabre RGB Pro Wireless very easy. Despite being advertised as an FPS/MOBA mouse, we reckon it’s just about perfect for any game.

Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed

The best wireless gaming mouse with a long battery life is the Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed.

Want a mouse that you can charge and forget about for a month? Razer’s Basilisk X Hyperspeed has pretty much the best battery life you can find on a gaming mouse, granting 285 hours on low-latency performance mode, or up to 450 hours under standard Bluetooth – although the latter will introduce a lag you’ll want to avoid in competitive games. You’ll have to do without RGB lighting, but that’s a small compromise for a single charge once per month if you use the mouse for nine hours a day.

It’s got Razer’s own 5G optical sensor, with up to 16,000dpi on tap for precise movement in shooters like Fortnite, plus mechanical click switches which are rated to last for up to 50 million clicks. The USB dongle handily slots inside the mouse and it’s pretty light at 83g, making it the perfect travel companion with your best gaming laptop, too.

Razer Viper Ultimate

The best wireless FPS mouse is the Razer Viper Ultimate.

If you predominantly play FPS games competitively and you’re looking to go cordless, then Razer’s Viper Ultimate would be our choice. It’s impressively lightweight at 74g, which is particularly low for a wireless gaming mouse, and with Razer’s Focus+ 20K optical sensor offering 20,000dpi, the mouse is perfect for fast and precise flick shots in CS:GO.

It’s got up to 70 hours of battery life, so you won’t be charging it too often, but when you do, it props up nicely on the included charging dock – no fiddling about trying to plug and unplug cables here. Optical click switches respond quickly, which is essential for competitive gaming, and it’s even got customisable RGB lighting for some extra flair.

Logitech G305 Lightspeed

The best budget wireless gaming mouse is the Logitech G305 Lightspeed.

When going for something a little cheaper, you want to avoid mice branded as ‘gaming’ , which often boast no real advantages over any regular mouse. The Logitech G305 keeps the price down, and while it may not be the fanciest looking mouse on this list, it still has some serious gaming chops. Much like the G502 Lightspeed, our current favourite, Logitech’s HERO optical sensor makes an appearance here, too, this time rated at 12,000dpi, which isn’t far behind some of the more expensive mice on this list.

It’s also got some of the best battery performance on this list at 250 hours, so the fact it takes an AA battery instead of a rechargeable pack inside is less of an issue. Still, it keeps the cost down at least, and means you won’t need to worry about battery issues a few years down the line. The included USB dongle uses Logitech’s Lightspeed technology giving a response time of just 1ms.

Cooler Master MM731

The best lightweight wireless gaming mouse is the Cooler Master MM731

Cooler Master is better known for, well, coolers, but the MM731 shows that it’s not a one-trick pony. The MM731 gaming mouse is one of the lightest rodents we’ve tested, coming in at 59g, but it also boasts optical microswitches, a max DPI of 19,000, and elegant RGB lighting that won’t stick out like a sore thumb at the office.

The Cooler Master MM731 is also versatile when it comes to connectivity, as you can cut the cord with 2.4Ghz and Bluetooth, or play and charge using USB. Despite being feature-packed, this gaming mouse also comes at an affordable price, especially when compared to similar products on the market.

Yes, it’s another Logitech mouse here – credit where credit’s due and all that. If you’re looking for the best ambidextrous wireless gaming mouse, you can’t do much better than the G903. It’s got the same brilliant HERO 25K sensor as the G502, RGB lighting, and adjustable weights, which let you increase how heavy it is from 107g to 117g.

It’s also compatible with Logitech’s wireless charging Powerplay mouse pad, and has a default 140-hour battery life that can go up to 180 hours with the RGB lighting disabled – more than double that of the G502.

Razer Naga Pro

The best wireless MMO mouse is the Razer Naga Pro.

If you’re looking for a cordless mouse for playing the best MMOs, then Razer’s Naga Pro is your perfect wireless companion. It’s modular side-plate makes it versatile for MOBAs and FPS games too, allowing you to switch between two, six, or 12 buttons, resulting in up to 20 programmable buttons in total.

It has the same great Focus+ 20K optical sensor as the Viper Ultimate offering 20,000dpi, and despite all those extra buttons, still weighs a very sensible 117g. It’s got a pretty decent 150-hour battery life too, so charges will be few and far between, even for the most hardcore gamers. Throw in Razer’s Chroma RGB lighting for an added sense of personalisation, and you’ve got one of the most versatile wireless gaming mice on the market.

AA vs rechargable batteries

You’ll want to check out the battery life of your chosen mice and how it recharges; The longer the battery life the better, obviously, but mice running with conventional AA batteries isn’t necessarily a disadvantage. With rechargeable battery packs, you have the risk that after a year or two of use, the battery may struggle to meet the original quoted battery life.

Wireless gaming mouse size

What genre you’re playing might influence your decision, too. The Naga Pro is a great MMO mouse, but the fact you can switch the side plate out for other game genres and still use Razer’s top optical sensor makes it very versatile across all game types. On the other hand, Razer’s Viper Ultimate is perfect for the hardcore FPS gamer with its light construction and great grip. If you’re looking for a no-frills wireless gaming mouse without breaking the bank, then Logitech’s G305 is a great contender.
