If you keep pulling the rear panel, which adjusts by pressing the button at the back, then it slides off. This reveals the battery compartment.

Thankfully Razer have gone with a AA battery for the Ouroboros. With a central position ensuring excellent weight distribution and AA batteries being absolutely everywhere you wont have any trouble keeping running. 

On the underside we have, from top to bottom, locks for the two side buttons, the sensor and the charging points. The interchangeable side panels connect via magnets and can be depressed as an extra button, which defaults to a clutch for those finely-tuned headshots. If you're the type of person who has a death-grip on their mouse then you can disable them individually.

The wheel visible on the first photograph on this page adjusts the angle of the rear panel, here shown at its maximum and minimum levels. Because the forward/backward buttons are placed so near the back of the Ouroboros we recommend a claw grip rather than a palm one, so the value of this is variable, dependant upon your play style.

The Razer Ouroboros certainly looks purposeful with its very angular surfaces. The F22 Raptor has a lot to answer for when it comes to recent mouse designs. Below the scroll wheel is the input for the cable should you want to play and charge, or just run wired.

When powered on there is a gentle green glow around the side buttons, the scroll wheel and, of course, on the battery level indicator.

Finally a look at the two different types of side cover available. On the left are the short slender ones, and on the right the ones that have been in place for the majority of our photographs. These are a two second change, thanks to the magnet switch system. Exactly like that we saw on the Tiamat headset.

There is a new model at the top of the Razer Range, the Ouroboros. Wired and wireless, does it take the crown?

I've been looking forward to this review

Now that I know the mouse is good, I think i'm going to get one.
I'm going to wait for it to drop in price first though, £115 is too much for a mouse. £80 is the highest i'm willing to go, seen as you can get a R.A.T 9 for around £70 - £80, which is just as customizable.Quote
