Now this looks great!
I'll have to get it when only it's available over here. Preorders via RazerStore are too expensive in my opinion.

Because some parts of the description are missing and some are leading to question, I asked Razer support to clarify them with such request:
Quote:
Hi, I have a few questions that I wanted to ask before ordering
Orochi 2013, as I can't find the answers on the site:
1. How much does it weigh? (I can only see 69g mouse / 23g cable for the
old Orochi)
2. Is it the same size as the old Orochi (99/67/35mm)?
3. The old Orochi had worse DPI on Bluetooth and there was a significant
delay compared to wired mode, especially on wake up. Is Orochi 2013 faster
in this regard? I have Mamba 2013 and it's as good in wireless as in
wired, and I wanted to know how Orochi 2013 performs compared to it.
4. I can see that you estimate the battery life for 30h of gaming / 3
months of regular desktop usage. Is there any switch that lowers the
performance to conserve the power?
5. Can it charge the batteries when connected to USB or do I have to
charge them outside with a separate device?
6. Can it operate without batteries, just connected to USB port?
7. Is the cable durable? (The one I got with RMA's Mamba 2013 was in
terrible shape out of the box and now it's starting to break)

In advance, thank you for answer

Here's the answer that I got:

Thank you and have a nice day.

Needless to say, I'm disappointed. They explained nothing, and that comparison hasn't even got Orochi 2013 in it. So I told them I'll post the email exchange.

Ok, now we're talking. After they got an email from me explaining that I was disappointed with the answer, I got another one. Perhaps it may be useful for you too:

Dear (...),

I am very sorry for the previous reply as i sent the email to wrong email address. Please forgive me. For your request i will answer as below.

1. How much does it weigh? (I can only see 69g mouse / 23g cable for the
old Orochi)

- I cant help in this question since we do not have the mouse in office right now and once we receive the mouse we will update the details in the website.

2. Is it the same size as the old Orochi (99/67/35mm)?
- Once again, since i have not seen the mouse by myself, i dont want to give out false information.Please be updated with Razerzone website as we will post all the new details once we obtain it.


3. The old Orochi had worse DPI on Bluetooth and there was a significant
delay compared to wired mode, especially on wake up. Is Orochi 2013 faster
in this regard? I have Mamba 2013 and it's as good in wireless as in
wired, and I wanted to know how Orochi 2013 performs compared to it.

- since the wake up function is designed to save the battery, it is the special feature of the mouse and not a defect itself. Since this mouse is USB 3.0 enabled and promised for extra battery life its promised to have better performance than the previous one.


4. I can see that you estimate the battery life for 30h of gaming / 3
months of regular desktop usage. Is there any switch that lowers the
performance to conserve the power?

- For this issue, you always can reduce the ultrapolling of the mouse itself from 1000hertz to a lesser amount. This should give extra battery life as well.

5. Can it charge the batteries when connected to USB or do I have to
charge them outside with a separate device?

-since this is a dual mode mouse, can work in wired and wireless mode, you can charge it in wired mode. There are no charging devices for this mouse.

6. Can it operate without batteries, just connected to USB port?
- in wired mode, yes, you can use the mouse without batteries since usb cable will supply the power to the mouse.


7. Is the cable durable? (The one I got with RMA's Mamba 2013 was in
terrible shape out of the box and now it's starting to break)

- the cable is braided and it should be very strong. We do not get alot of complaints regarding this issue with Orochi.

I hope i answered you well in this email.Once again, im sorry for the previous email as it was ment to someone else.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Best Regards,

Razer Support Team
So I think I'll wait for their site update and will probably order it. Mamba is an awesome mouse, but kinda problematic to carry with a laptop.
