Mad Catz introduces his BAT 6+. The mouse promises a response time of 2ms to the mouse click using proprietary mechanical switches and uses a 16,000dpi sensor from PixArt. The switches will also be available for the RAT DWS mouse.

Gaming mouse maker Mad Catz is using this CES on its own mechanical switch, the Dakota switch. This mechanical switch is included in the introduced BAT+ mouse and promises to be better than regular mechanical switches in mice, with a sensor in the switch and two contact points. Competitor Razer bets on optical switches to get the response time down.

The BAT 6+ can be completely customized to your own taste, because it comes with different replaceable backplates and side skirts. There are ten programmable buttons on the mouse and five different profiles can be stored on the mouse. The mouse is also suitable for left-handers, because it is completely ambidextrous.

The mouse uses a PixArt PMW3389 optical sensor with a resolution of 16,000 dpi. The mouse weighs 115 grams and has a USB cable of 1.8 meters. The mouse should be available from February. Earlier this month, Mad Catz announced the successor to its popular RAT series of gaming mice, the DWS. This mouse will also be available with Dakota switches.
