Logitech G releases new wireless mouse charging system

By

Logitech G, a division of Logitech, has announced two technologies that make possible the first wireless charging system for gaming mice.

POWERPLAY provides continuous charging, both during gameplay and at rest, while LIGHTSPEED provides connectivity and performance.

Two new mouse models were also announced, both of which are compatible with the new technologies. The Logitech G903 and the Logitech G703 are now available.

“For decades, we've pioneered development in wireless gaming, and our new POWERPLAY and LIGHTSPEED wireless technologies continue this commitment to wireless superiority,” said Ujesh Desai, vice-president and general manager of Logitech G.

“With POWERPLAY, LIGHTSPEED and our new G903 and G703 mice, you’ll get unbeatable precision, lag-free performance and infinite power, which gives gamers the highest-quality experience.”

LIGHTSPEED is claimed to feature a one-millisecond report rate and end-to-end signal optimisation. It is said to provide competition-level responsiveness at speeds faster than many competitive wired gaming mice.

"Decades of wireless engineering experience mean LIGHTSPEED has wireless signal strength up to 16x (12dB) higher than the competition and a unique Frequency Agility Mechanism that automatically avoids problematic interference, ensuring smooth and consistent performance," the company claimed.

The wireless charging system uses electromagnetic resonance that creates an energy field above POWERPLAY's 275 x 320mm surface to deliver wireless power without interfering with the precise tracking and data transmission of high-performance gaming mice.

The POWERPLAY energy field is captured and transformed into charging current by the POWERCORE module, which attaches magnetically to compatible wireless gaming mice, including the Logitech G903 and G703.

Both new mouse models come with the PMW3366 optical sensor, which Logitech G claims is widely regarded by e-sports professionals and gaming enthusiasts as the best gaming mouse sensor.

The G703 has a RRP of $149.95 while the G903 costs $249.95. The price for POWERPLAY is yet to be announced.
