In my 35 years of gaming experience, I have had countless peripherals of all kinds (keyboards, mice, headsets, etc.) in use. However, since I’ve been in Esports, I have to say that I’ve generally always used the highest quality peripherals.
The company KLIM Technologies approached me and asked me to take a closer look at some of their products and test their quality. For this purpose, they provided me with several devices free of charge. This article will look at the KLIM Blaze Pro wireless gaming mouse.
If you are also interested in the other KLIM devices I tested, feel free to check them out here.
When working with KLIM Technologies, it was important to me that I could write my honest opinion independently, which is also explicitly desired by KLIM Technologies.
My focus is also less on the detailed technology because the number of buttons, input lag, or power value of the battery is no longer a decisive factor for gaming products.
More critical are the handling, durability, and adaptability with regard to FPS games.
Well then, let’s go!

Here is a short promotional video from KLIM, so you can get a first impression of their esports engagement...
The KLIM Blaze Pro is a wireless gaming mouse. I used this mouse for several weeks in heavy daily use, both in gaming and my everyday activities on a Windows PC.
This means the mouse was put through a hardcore test with 12-16 hours of daily use.
Scope of delivery
The KLIM Blaze Pro comes in stylish, industry-standard packaging. Inside is a small envelope from the manufacturer. Inside you’ll find some very nice stickers from KLIM Technologies and a letter. I won’t reveal the contents of the letter, but I can say this much, it shows that at least some people at KLIM Technologies have a great sense of humor in marketing. 😀
Otherwise, the accessories are clear but completely sufficient.
You get a charging cable for the mouse. The charging cable is a USB-C charging cable and can thus also be used for other devices with this port.
A charging station for the mouse is also included.
So you can charge the mouse directly via cable and continue playing with the cable, or connect the charging cable to the charging station and place the mouse on the charging station to charge when needed.
A quick start guide is also included.
Last but not least, a USB receiver is included, which can be attached to the computer when using the mouse or alternatively connected to the charging station, which is then connected to the PC via a charging cable.
In my test, I had the charging station constantly on my desk, connected to the USB receiver and with the charging cable connected to the PC, always ready to charge the mouse in between.
By the way, the small USB receiver can be safely stored at the bottom of the mouse when transporting the mouse.
Design and Shape
The design of the mouse is absolutely high-quality. It is a symmetrical shape that can be used by both left- and right-handers. The mouse has 6 buttons, including 2 thumb buttons on the left side, which is, of course not optimal for lefties then.
The manufacturer states that the mouse’s weight is very competitive, 3.08 ounces (87.5g). Since the weight of a mouse is very important to many, including me, I weighed it and came up with just 3.03 ounces (86g).
I have very large hands and still had no problems finding a good grip on the mouse. The shape reminded me of many other symmetrical gaming mice I have used.
Overall, very comfortable to grip.
In my opinion, the grip is the main deciding factor for or against a mouse. There are technically countless good gaming mice on the market, but you have to find one that works best for you and your grip or hand.
So the mouse with the best technology isn’t always the best mouse for you in the end.
By the way, this is also the reason why many pro gamers have used a certain mouse model for years, even though there are better mice available and their model is absolutely outdated.
The better the grip and therefore the control, the better your aiming results.
I am not a big fan of RGB lighting. It consumes additional power, which costs money, but of course, leads to shorter battery life, especially with a wireless mouse.
When I started gaming, there was no such thing, so maybe I don’t have a good connection to it.
However, I know that many value it, so I can say that all the usual RGB functions are present, from permanent glow to certain flashing patterns and, of course, different colors, permanent and changing. Controllable via the KLIM software described in more detail below.
The KLIM Blaze Pro has 4 gliding feet. I used the mouse with a Glorious 3XL gaming mouse pad, which I have been using for 1.5 years. The mouse glide was excellent and did not decrease during the test.
Now we come to a not-so-insignificant point. What can the KLIM Blaze Pro do, and what is (technically) inside it?
The wireless technology from Klim Technologies (2.4 GHz) is absolutely impressive. I had no problems, the USB receiver on the computer and mouse were activated, and everything worked fine.
According to KLIM, you can even use the mouse 10m away from the receiver.
But since I rarely play or work 10m away from the desk, I have not tested that extra times 😉
KLIM Technologies offers its own software for each of its gaming mice, so in this case, I downloaded and installed the KLIM Blaze Pro software from the KLIM website. It’s important to note that the mouse will work without the software, but usually, you’ll want to adjust a few things on the mouse. So first, let’s see what you can set in the software.
- Key assignment: You can assign all 6 keys freely
- Polling Rate: Has 4 levels (125Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz, 1000Hz)
- 6 DPI levels: For each level, the DPI can be freely defined in steps of 100 up to 10,000 DPI. Each level can also be assigned an RGB color, which then indicates which level you have currently activated (the level can be changed via button)
- mouse sensitivity, scroll speed, and double click speed
- Macros can be set up (not tested, because in some competitive games, this is forbidden, and so I never dealt with this :-D)
- RGB Lighting: Colors and effects can be set. Here you can also disable the illumination completely, which can also be done with a button on the bottom of the mouse.
All in all, I would say standard functions in mouse software. In my test, I played at 800 DPI with a polling rate of 1,000Hz. This DPI number has established itself with me in the last years, no matter which mouse. However, I still played on 400 DPI earlier in my best Counterstrike times.
Usually, it doesn’t matter which DPI number you choose, it’s the eDPI (DPI x InGame Mouse Sensitivity) that matters, and you can adjust that at any DPI level using the InGame Mouse Sensitivity.
If you need more information about eDPI, take a look at this:
In rare cases, it used to happen that certain mice didn’t run optimally on certain DPI values or certain games had problems with certain DPI numbers. The same applies to the polling rate, by the way. Currently, however, I am not aware of any games or devices that would still have such problems.
The last game I know of was PUBG, which had problems with higher polling rates in its early days. However, this was then fixed over time.
Huano microswitches are installed in the KLIM Blaze Pro, according to the manufacturer, with a durability of 20 million clicks (there, you can already take the one or other match :-D).
The keys are of high quality and worked flawlessly during my test.
You have the left and right mouse buttons, 2 thumb buttons on the left side, the mouse wheel (as usual on most gaming mice, the mouse wheel is also a button), and one more button between the left and right buttons and the mouse wheel. With this button, you can change the DPI levels if you don’t define them differently in the software.
By the way, the mouse wheel is absolutely high-quality, just like the other buttons, and it worked optimally during gaming, scrolling in the web browser, etc.
A high-quality modified PMW 3325 sensor is installed in the KLIM Blaze Pro. As far as I know, this sensor currently belongs to the top level, and I could not find any difference from other top sensors, so absolutely thumbs up for the quality of the sensor.
Despite the extreme use with me, I had to charge the mouse only rarely in the several weeks (according to the manufacturer, a charging process takes about 3 hours, and that’s about right), and even then, you can just continue to use the mouse, it’s just a cable on it. Of course, I can’t say how the battery performance behaves after longer use.
Of course, I have to mention that I used the mouse WITHOUT RGB lighting. I can imagine that using RGB lighting must be charged significantly more often.
This is probably the big plus point of the KLIM Blaze Pro.
While many wireless gaming mice are priced at $100 and up, the KLIM Blaze Pro is priced at around $50 or less. (Depending on your country, this may vary slightly from the prices mentioned).
Where Can You Get It?
KLIM Technologies, of course, has any number of distribution channels. Products can be a few dollars cheaper at some hard-to-find retailers or sales platforms – we all know that. On the other hand, there is Amazon, usually with the best price, but most importantly, with the best service and smooth delivery.
If you want to take a closer look at the KLIM Blaze Pro if only for the listing of more technical details or to get other opinions, you can jump to your nearest Amazon to the KLIM Blaze Pro via this international link.
All in all, I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised by what a good product you get at this price from KLIM Technologies.
A very good technology combined with a more than suitable price makes the price-performance ratio excellent.
Because it should be clear to everyone that products that cost double or triple will also be better in some areas (if not, something is going wrong :-)). In this case, however, I have to say that I see only a few differences to the market-leading products.
If you’re looking for a gaming mouse with very good technology that also has RGB lighting and doesn’t want to spend a fortune on it, the KLIM Blaze Pro is absolutely the right choice.
The KLIM Blaze Pro has entirely convinced me. A competitive wireless gaming mouse on a very good level for a very good price.
But maybe you’re not a fan of wireless mice, or you don’t see the point in spending more than $30 for a gaming mouse, then you might like the KLIM AIM gaming mouse better, which I also tested.
And here, you can find a direct comparison between the KLIM Blaze Pro and the KLIM AIM.
