On the underside, the user can find the Avago ADNS-9500 laser sensor that reaches 5,700 dpi of resolution, plus two Teflon feet for precise sliding.
As we said before, unlike other models, the DeathTaker’s weight adjustment system doesn’t reside on the underside, but instead it can be found inside the rounded top of the mouse, under the glossy cover with the scorpion logo. The cover is released after applying a little pressure with the thumb and then sliding it to the right. This way, the user finds a small compartment to insert the rubber rail that holds six weights with 4.5 g (0.15 oz.) each, for a total increment of 27 g (0.9 oz). The cover is magnetically closed. There’s no storage for the weights in case the user doesn’t fit them all inside the DeathTaker.
The 1.8 m/6 feet cable is cloth-wrapped and ends on a gold-plated USB connector. A Velcro ribbon neatly ties up the cable.
