The Next Step in the Evolution of the Mouse


Sleek, versatile, and decidedly next-gen, Mad Catz' R.A.T. M Wireless Mobile Gaming Mouse gives you the performance you would expect from a R.A.T. and combines it with the portability of a notebook mouse. Featuring the latest Bluetooth technology – as well as a nano dongle for devices lacking Bluetooth connectivity – the R.A.T. M is just as comfortable at home as it is in the office. With programmable action buttons and an intuitive drag-and-drop software interface for button customization, this is the premiere mouse for the gamer on-the-go.


GameSmart Multi-platform Compatible via Bluetooth Smart Technology


Bluetooth Smart, featuring Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy (BLE), is a new, power-efficient version of Bluetooth wireless technology, already integrated into many modern computing devices. When paired with a Bluetooth Smart-compatible device, setup for the R.A.T. M is ultra-quick and very easy. Seamlessly connect to PCs, Macs, tablets, smartphones and laptops in a matter of minutes.


USB Nano Dongle for Devices without Bluetooth


No Bluetooth in your device? No problem! Just use the included USB nano dongle – which is conveniently stored within the underside of the R.A.T. M – and get connected. Its minute size won't add any bulk to your device, and it's nearly invisible once installed.


Up to 1 Year of Use from 2 AAA Batteries


Thanks to integrated Bluetooth Smart technology and a power-efficient, 'twin-eye' sensor, the R.A.T. M is a champion of power conservation. The included AAA batteries provide up to one year's worth of energy, more than twice that of the previous generation of Bluetooth mice.


Powerful GameSmart Technology


Products featuring GameSmart technology operate seamlessly with a variety of different mobile devices. GameSmart enables near-universal compatibility for PCs and Macs, as well as the latest generation of tablets such as the Microsoft Surface. By utilizing Bluetooth Smart, GameSmart wireless devices also feature simplified setup and extended battery life.


When one product functions with a multitude of devices, you'll find comfort in knowing that a new device won't require yet another purchase. Whether gaming on your laptop, creating spreadsheets on your desktop, or editing photos on your tablet, the R.A.T. M is your go-to mouse.


Perfect Your Grip


To improve comfort and provide a custom fit, the palm rest on the R.A.T. M adapts to your hand. Easily adjust the overall length to suit your grip style; four different settings range from 0-15mm in 5mm increments.


True 6400 DPI Laser Sensor with 2 Custom Settings


The Mad Catz R.A.T. M Wireless Mobile Gaming Mouse's power-efficient, 'twin-eye' laser sensor reads each axis separately and tracks up to a stunning 6 meters per second with pinpoint accuracy. Pro-gamers who prefer low sensitivity with high movement speed will always experience correct tracking and precision. Two user-definable DPI settings range from 25 to 6400 and the DPI button lets you easily cycle through custom settings.


Unique 5D Button Enables 5 Commands with a Single Control


Use the 5D Button to click up and down, left and right, and press in. Gain the competitive advantage by always knowing exactly where each and every mouse button resides – without the hassles of training aids or the need to actually look at the mouse to locate a feature. Perfect positioning under your thumb provides lightning-fast access to your most important gaming commands.


Custom Travel Pouch Included


When the need for a great mouse finds you on the road, the included travel pouch provides convenient storage while helping to protect your device from the elements.
