  • Sensor: Optical
  • Weight: 85 g                  
  • Modes: USB wired
  • Buttons: 4

The Katar is the lightest mouse in our list weighing under 90g. It is ideal for gamers that prefer low sensitivity as it can be lifted and moved around with ease. It features a minimalist design, which is a diverting look from the usual fancy and flashy look gaming mice sport.

Pros
  • Lightweight and compact
