    My adorable/mischievous foster dog chewed straight through and severed the cord on my 2013 DeathAdder. What do you recommend I do with it? Is it worth trying to sell on ebay for parts? I'm talking about the mouse, not the dog.

    Just to let you know, when I saw "the victim" and "the perpetrator" and their pictures, I laughed more than I care to admit

    Maybe it is time for Razer to come up with detachable cords on every peripheral they make, because cords can break with age rendering the mouse useless, which is kind of unfortunate.

    Well I guess in order to restore justice in your home you will have to chew on your dog

    Ouch. I know how it feels to lose a Razer device. Try Resoldering it back together if that fails buy a new one but buy a wireless one.

    if you know how to use the soldering iron by all means fix it. or maybe if know some Electrician repair guy you can have him do it for you. but if you are too lazy to do it maybe just buy a new one. or post at the forums and reach 450 to avail the free taipan mouse :)

    Sell the dog, the mouse can be repaired.

    Since she likes the mouse so much, take of the cable and give it to your dog as a toy?

    Hmmm. There are a few solutions to this predicament.
    1. Forget the DeathAdder, buy a Mamba, and let it loose on your dog. I don't mean the Razer product, I mean the actual snake.

    3. If you are saavy with electronics and a soldering iron, repair it yourself.

    Exactly, just cut off the chewed up parts, strip the wires and solder the same colored cables to each other, 30 minute job and you don't have to spend any money...Soldering iron's FTW!

    Thanks for clarifying. I was considering buying the dog.

    But really, just solder it.

    Just solder it, honestly 4 wires is nothing. I'm currently building a 4x4x4 RGB cube that requires me to solder each led 4 times, meaning I have to solder 64 leds 4 times for each one, meaning a total of 256 solder points (excluding the wires that need to be connected to my arduino nano).
    You just have to solder 4 wires, or if you don't feel like it you can just twist the 4 wires together.
