CHARGING YOUR MOUSE
Plug the charging cable from any of your PC’s USB ports to the Razer Viper V2 Pro. For best results, please fully charge the mouse before using it for the first time. A depleted battery will be fully charged in approximately 4 hours.
While charging, the status indicator will show the battery percentage of the mouse:
The Razer Viper V2 Pro requires a USB connection that can supply sufficient power to charge the device. The charging process may be affected when connecting to a non-powered USB hub or non-powered USB port mostly found on keyboards and peripherals. It’s recommended to always connect the mouse directly to any of the USB ports of your PC.
LOW POWER INDICATOR
The status indicator will blink red twice in repeated intervals to indicate that its battery’s power is less than 5%. This lighting sequence will repeat until the battery is drained or the mouse is connected to a PC via the charging cable.

CONFIGURING YOUR RAZER VIPER V2 PRO
Internet connection is required for installation, updates, and cloud-based features. Registering for a Razer ID account is recommended but optional. All listed features are subject to change based on the current software version, the connected device(s), and supported apps and software.
The Synapse tab is your default tab when you first launch Razer Synapse. This tab allows you to navigate the Dashboard subtab.
The Dashboard subtab is an overview of your Razer Synapse, where you can access all your Razer devices, modules, and online services.
The Modules subtab displays all installed and available modules for installation.
Bind operations or Razer Synapse functions to custom key-combinations from Razer Synapse-enabled device inputs, which apply across all device profiles. Learn more about Profiles
Only Razer Synapse-enabled device inputs will be recognized.
The Mouse tab is the main tab for your Razer Viper V2 Pro. From here, you can change your device’s settings, such as button assignment and DPI sensitivity. Changes made under this tab are automatically saved to your system and cloud storage.
The Customize subtab is for modifying your mouse’s button assignments.
A Profile is a data storage for keeping all your Razer peripheral’s settings. By default, the profile name is based on your system’s name. To add, rename, duplicate, or delete a profile, simply press the Miscellaneous button ( • • • ).
Standard / Hypershift
Hypershift mode is a secondary set of button assignments that is activated when the Hypershift key is held down. By default, the Hypershift key is assigned to the fn key of your Razer Synapse supported keyboard; however, you can also assign any mouse button as a Hypershift key.
HyperSpeed Multi-Device Pairing
Use this feature to pair an additional HyperSpeed-compatible device with the wireless USB dongle of your Razer Viper V2 Pro. As its wireless USB dongle can support a keyboard and mouse simultaneously, you’ll be able to remove the usage of separate dongles for each peripheral.
Your Razer Viper V2 Pro must be connected via HyperSpeed (2.4GHz) wireless mode to use this feature. Each peripheral can only connect to one dongle at a time.
The Sidebar button ( ) will reveal all current button assignments for your Razer Viper V2 Pro.

This function allows you to manipulate the DPI setting of your Razer Viper V2 Pro with a touch of a button. Listed below are the Sensitivity options and their description:
- Sensitivity Clutch – Changes the sensitivity to a predefined DPI while the designated button is held down. Releasing the button will return it to the previous sensitivity.

A Macro is a prerecorded sequence of keystrokes and button presses that is executed with precise timing. By setting the button function to Macro, you can conveniently execute a chain of commands. This function will only be visible when the Macro module is installed.
Inter-device allows you to change the functionality of other Razer Synapse-enabled devices. Some of these functionalities are device-specific such as using your Razer keyboard to change the Sensitivity Stage of your Razer mouse.
Switch Profile enables you to quickly change profiles and load a new set of button assignments. An on-screen notification will appear whenever you switch profiles.
Setting the button to Razer Hypershift will allow you to activate Hypershift mode as long as the button is held down.

Text Function enables you to type a prewritten text with a touch of a button. Write your desired text on the given field, and your text will be typed whenever the assigned button is pressed. This function has full Unicode support, and you can also insert special symbols from character maps.
This option renders the assigned button unusable. Use Disable if you do not want to use the selected button or if it interferes with your work.
The Performance subtab allows you to modify the sensitivity, acceleration, and polling rate.
Sensitivity refers to the distance the cursor will travel based on how far the mouse moved. The higher the DPI, the farther the cursor will travel, given the same mouse movement distance.
A sensitivity stage is a preset sensitivity value. You can create up to 5 different sensitivity stages, which you can cycle through using the DPI cycle button.
Enable X-Y Sensitivity
The X-axis (horizontal) and Y-axis (vertical) use the same sensitivity values by default. However, you may set different sensitivity values for each axis by selecting the Enable X-Y Sensitivity option.
The higher the polling rate, the more often the computer receives information about the status of your mouse, thus increasing the mouse pointer’s reaction time. You can switch between 125Hz (8ms), 500Hz (2ms), and 1000Hz (1ms) by selecting your desired polling rate from the options provided.
From here, you can access the Windows Mouse Properties to modify operating system settings that can directly affect your Razer Viper V2 Pro.
The Calibration subtab allows you to optimize your Razer Precision Sensor to any surface for better tracking.
Smart tracking enables you to set the distance the sensor stops tracking when lifted from its surface to avoid unwanted cursor movement. You may assign different lift-off and landing distances values by selecting the Enable Asymmetric Cut-Off.
The Power subtab allows you to manage your device’s energy consumption by setting it to power off when it has been idle for a certain amount of time. You may also adjust the required battery percentage of the mouse when entering Low Power Mode to conserve battery life.
The Profiles tab is a convenient way of managing all your profiles and linking them to your games and applications.
View which games are linked to each device’s profiles or which Chroma Effect is linked to specific games using the Devices subtab.
You can import Profiles from your computer or the cloud through the import button ( ) or create new profiles within the selected device using the add button (+). To rename, duplicate, export, or delete a profile, simply press the Miscellaneous button ( ••• ). Each profile can be set to automatically activate when you run an application using the Linked Games option.
The Linked Games subtab gives you the flexibility to add games, view devices that are linked to games, or search for added games. You can also sort games based on alphabetical order, last played, or most played. Added games will still be listed here even if it is not linked to a Razer device.
To link games to connected Razer devices or Chroma Effects, click on any game from the list, and then click Select a device and its profile to launch automatically during gameplay to select the Razer device or Chroma Effect it will link with. Once linked, you may click on the Miscellaneous button ( ••• ) of the corresponding Chroma Effect or device to select a specific Chroma Effect or profile.
The Settings window, accessible by clicking the ( ) button on Razer Synapse, enables you to configure the startup behavior and display language of Razer Synapse, view the master guides of each connected Razer device, or perform a factory reset on any connected Razer device.
The default tab of the Settings window, the General tab, enables you to change the software’s display language, start-up behavior, display theme, and on-screen notifications display. You may also manually sync your profiles to the cloud ( ) or view the master guide of all connected Razer devices and installed modules.
The Reset tab allows you to perform a factory reset on all connected Razer devices with on-board memory and/or reset Razer Synapse tutorials to acquaint yourself again with Razer Synapse’s new features on its next launch.
All profiles stored on the selected device’s on-board memory will be erased by resetting a Razer device.
SAFETY AND MAINTENANCE
To achieve maximum safety while using your Razer Viper V2 Pro, we suggest that you adopt the following guidelines:
Should you have trouble operating the device properly and troubleshooting does not work, unplug the device and contact the Razer hotline or go to support.razer.com for support.
Do not take apart the device and do not attempt to operate it under abnormal current loads. Doing so will void your warranty.
Recharge the mouse before use if the Razer Viper V2 Pro has not been used for an extended period.
Keep the device away from liquid, humidity, or moisture. Operate the device only within the specific temperature range of 0°C (32°F) to 40°C (104°F). Should the temperature exceed this range, unplug and/or switch off the device to let the temperature stabilize to an optimal level.
Research has shown that long periods of repetitive motion, improper positioning of your computer peripherals, incorrect body position, and poor habits may be associated with physical discomfort and injury to nerves, tendons, and muscles. Below are some guidelines to avoid injury and ensure optimum comfort while using your Razer Viper V2 Pro..
- Position your keyboard and monitor directly in front of you with your mouse next to it. Place your elbows next to your side, not too far away, and your keyboard within easy reach.
- Adjust the height of your chair and table so that the keyboard and mouse are at or below elbow height.
- Keep your feet well supported, posture straight, and your shoulders relaxed.
- During gameplay, relax your wrist and keep it straight. If you repeatedly do the same tasks with your hands, try not to bend, extend or twist your hands for long periods.
- Don’t rest your wrists on hard surfaces for long periods. Use a wrist rest to support your wrist while gaming.
- Don’t sit in the same position all day. Get up, step away from your desk and do exercises to stretch your arms, shoulders, neck, and legs.
- If you should experience any physical discomfort while using your mouse, such as pain, numbness, or tingling in your hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, neck, or back, please consult a qualified medical doctor immediately.
MAINTENANCE AND USE
The Razer Viper V2 Pro requires minimum maintenance to keep it in optimum condition. Once a month, we recommend you clean the device using a soft cloth or cotton swab to prevent dirt buildup. Don’t use soap or harsh cleaning agents.
To get the ultimate experience in movement and control, we highly recommend a premium mouse mat from Razer. Some surfaces will cause undue wear on the feet requiring constant care and eventual replacement.
Do note that the Razer Viper V2 Pro’s sensor is ‘tuned’ or optimized, especially for the Razer mouse mats. This means that the sensor has been tested extensively to confirm that the Razer Viper V2 Pro reads and tracks best on Razer mouse mats.
The Razer Viper V2 Pro contains a Li-ion rechargeable battery. In general, the life expectancy of such batteries is dependent upon usage. If you suspect that the Li-ion rechargeable battery inside the Razer Viper V2 Pro may be drained (has a low charge), try charging it.
Caution: Don’t open, mutilate, or expose to conducting materials (metal), moisture, liquid, fire, or heat. Doing so may cause batteries to leak or explode, resulting in personal injury. Battery life varies with usage.
