    A. It was a brand new battery.
    B. The battery destroyed the mouse.
    A good cs team would have at least offered a replacement battery (as this battery was in warranty) if not also a replacement mouse.... See below:

    I have also chatted with one of the SBUI/Razer Devs online. He developed for the SBUI but was never actually owned a Blade Pro or Deathstalker ultimate.

    Sort of makes it difficult to write code when you don't have access to the product it's going to run on. Pretty counter-intuitive.....

    I may have copies of some of the apps devs created but were never released by razer for the SBUI and were 'lost' when the forum closed. If anyone wants copies, hmu and I'll try to to dig em up. One if the apps actually had bf3 integration. Another I think worked with VLC player.

    Anyways, I still got a brand new replacement blade pro 2013 sitting in a box. Never even set the thing up. Was too frustrated and had switched over to a gt80s.

    Hi Sumanji and all,

    Just saw this thread by chance. I also have a Razer Blade 14 from 2013, and its battery was pretty weared. I bought a new one a few months ago from this website for around 90 euros (the price seems to have dropped since).
    http://www.battery-store.eu/laptopcomputer/1004078.htm

    Took about a month to arrive, great quality, no issues (yet?), 70000 mWh.
    VERY happy about it as I now have a ~5-6 hours battery for Office/web browsing, compared to the bad readings and 2 hours from my old battery.

    Definitely worth it if you want to give you Razer Blade a new youth. My now nearly 5 years-old machine still rocks solid for regular use or games like Civ, OW, Total War etc. With its new battery, don't even know if I should change in the near future ...

    Hope it helps. Regards,

    Thought I'd chime in and say that I also had quality issues with the OG Mamba. The battery in mine didn't explode, but it expanded enough for the battery tray to pop out and fall off. The mouse had almost exclusively been used in wired mode, and when the incident happened, the warranty had run out by mere days. The RMB also wore out prematurely, needing several clicks to register and having virtually no feedback. Bought a Roccat Kone XTD as a replacement, and it's built like a tank in comparison, so I still use it today.

    Switched to a Roccat Kone XTD as well after 2 deathadders prematurely dying. The Kone XTD is already going strong for 5 years now......
