The Pulsar Xlite V2 Wireless mouse is a wireless mouse that boasts dual connectivity and a lightweight body of 60g. A lot of companies have made their mice lighter by cutting out multiple holes on the body of the mouse, effectively lowering its weight too.

The Pulsar Xlite V2 Wireless has a matte black finish on its plastic body, covered with pill-shaped cutouts on the palm rest and on the front sides of the mouse. Most gaming mice of this weight would have solid backplates on the bottom of the mouse, the Xlite V2 Wireless went with an almost bare design instead.
This does make the mouse lighter, but in turn make it more prone to dust as well. Within the mouse, there is one single RGB LED which you can customize to show a static or breathing solid colour. This light also shows battery status.
In terms of build quality, the Pulsar Xlite V2 Wireless is a splendid mouse. There is no wobbling, creaking or rattling of any kind even when you shake the mouse. There is a little flex if you press on the bottom frame of the mouse, but as long as you use the mouse as intended, there shouldn’t be an issue.
When it comes to portability, the mouse is light but it isn’t the thinnest. The Cooler Master MM731 would be thinner, in this case. It would take up a bit of space in your backpack, but should be negligible if your bag is big. The mouse itself doesn’t have a port/hole to hold the 2.4GHz wireless receiver, so do take note on that.
Using The Mouse
As mentioned above, the Pulsar Xlite V2 Wireless is extremely light which is one of the reasons I love it. The weight is centered, and there are no additional weight system offered for customization. It’s super comfortable for right-handed users, where the buttons are well-positioned as they’re all within reach, regardless of grip type. I’d personally recommend the mouse to users who have medium to large hands, and all grip types are welcome. If you have small hands, it’s usable too, but maybe not for fingertip grip users.
Clicks are rather sharp, but still decent sounding to the ears. I would’ve preferred it if the clicks were a little more muted. For connectivity, it can only pair to one device at a time on 2.4GHz and there is no Bluetooth onboard. It has a built-in battery which can last up to 70 hours according to Pulsar, and I’ve found the claim to be quite accurate, give and take. Because it doesn’t have Bluetooth, the power switch at the bottom becomes easier to flick because it doesn’t have a middle step. It’s left for off, and right for on, that’s it.
I tried the braided Superflex paracord cable, and found that it glides really smoothly on mousepads. But, I still prefer not having the cable so I stuck to 2.4GHz wireless connectivity instead. To help with that glide, the bottom uses virgin grade PTFE which most gaming mice use and it does wonders.
There are two buttons on the side, which can be customized to any key/command of your liking. In my use case, I’ve set it to volume controls.
The Pulsar Xlite V2 Wireless is fully compatible with both Windows and MacOS, but the customization software only works on Windows. The software allows you to adjust DPI settings, perform firmware updates, tweak RGB light settings, polling rate, profiles, and more. It’s easy to understand and use, but you won’t spend a lot of time on it. Once you’ve got your settings all worked out, you probably won’t need it any more.
For improvements, I would’ve liked for the mouse to have maybe one more additional button maybe on right side of the mouse for more controls. Bluetooth connectivity would have been good, or a storage hole to keep the 2.4GHz wireless receiver on the mouse itself.
The Pulsar Xlite V2 Wireless is a fuss-free gaming mouse that does its job with finesse. It’s stable and sturdy, glides really well, and is ultra lightweight to be brought around too. All of its buttons are programmable, and it has really low click latency allowing for faster responses on-screen. It’s a great mouse for FPS players, but left-handed users might want to consider alternatives.
