Launch of IP54-rated SteelSeries Aerox 3 gaming mice
The SteelSeries Aerox 3 and Aerox 3 wireless gaming mouse devices were launched in the US. The Danish gaming peripheral manufacturer claims this is the first pair of gaming mouse devices to have received an IP54 rating for protection against dust, water and oil. What’s interesting is that they both have an open mesh design, which means they both have holes in the outer shell. SteelSeries says that AquaBarrier technology keeps the internal components of devices safe. They also have a TrueMove Core sensor.
Aerox 3 price, availability
The Aerox 3 Wireless Mouse is priced at $ 100 (roughly Rs. 7,500), and the Aerox 3 Wired mouse can be bought priced at $ 60 (roughly Rs. 4,500). Both will be available in the US on November 10. When we checked, the official SteelSeries website said that it does not currently ship the product to India. There is no information about its launch in India.
Aerox 3 Specifications
The SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless mouse weighs 66 grams and the company claims that Aerox 3 Wired weighs even less at 57 grams. As mentioned, they both have an open mesh design – they have holes in their outer shell. The mice implement AquaBarrier technology that protects the interior circuitry from virtually all types of environmental damage. Essentially, Aerox is the “first gaming mouse to receive an IP54 rating for water resistance and protection against dust, dirt, oil, skin, and more.”
Both Aerox 3 mice are equipped with the TrueMove Core sensor, which SteelSeries developed in conjunction with optical sensor maker PixArt. The wireless variant can be connected to devices via a 2.4GHz USB or Bluetooth wireless connection. The company claims the mouse will run for up to 200 hours with Bluetooth and more than 80 hours with a 2.4GHz connection. The Aerox 3 Wireless Mouse comes with a USB Type-C port for fast charging, and SteelSeries claims that a 15-minute fast charge provides more than 40 hours of battery life.
