ASUS ROG Gladius II + ROG Balteus Qi Wireless-Charging Reviewed

So much ROG!! The Gladius II and Balteus Qi perfectly accompanies the Strix XG49VQ Monitor

When it comes to third-party hardware and peripheral manufacturers in the PC world, it’s tough to top the reputation that the folks at Asus have built.

They are widely regarded by those across all spectrums of the PC community (from office productivity to hard-core gamer and everyone in between) as one of the very best peripheral manufacturers in the business. It should come as no surprise to anyone that the new ROG Gladius II wireless mouse and ROG Balteus Qi wireless-charging pad wireless charging pad are as popular as they are today.


For starters, the Asus ROG Gladius II represents a major improvement from the very first Gladius made by this company. The Gladius II is one of the most impressive RGB gaming mice we’ve recently seen, thanks in large part to the inclusion of dual 2.4 GHz and Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connectivity options that guarantee you deal with as little input lag as humanly possible.

Combine that with a ridiculously impressive 16,000 dpi sensor, ROG-exclusive switch socket design, and a lighting system that can be customised and controlled by the Aurora Sync RGB Lighting platform from Asus and you are looking at something special here.

Gamers on the go are going to find this to be lightning-fast, ridiculously accurate, and almost just as good as a wired mouse – even when playing competitively online.

Of course, you’re going to want a good gaming mousepad underneath your new Gladius II to make sure that you can dominate the competition and use all of the power user features built right in. That’s where the Balteus Qi wireless-charging pad comes into play.

The Balteus Qi wireless-charging pad provides a rock-solid, stable, and smooth surface for your mouse to glide over while gaming but also giving you the ability to charge your devices at the same time wirelessly. There is very little on the market quite like the Balteus Qi wireless-charging pad today.

Connecting to your computer via USB (and providing USB 2.0 pass-through ports for extra extensibility), another cool little feature of the Balteus Qi wireless-charging pad is the inclusion of the 15 zone RGB colour lighting scheme that can be customised through the Aurora Sync software just like the Gladius II mouse.

Combine these two amazing gaming accessories with your gaming PC or laptop, and you’ll be able to upgrade your experience instantly – all while using the latest and greatest in gaming hardware engineering from the folks at ASUS.
