After more than four years of R&D, Logitech G, a brand of Logitech, today announced the launch of two technologies that make the dream of high performance wireless gaming a reality. Logitech G POWERPLAYTM is the world's first wireless charging system for gaming mice providing continuous charging while both playing games and at rest - completely eliminating the need to dock or park their mouse to recharge. The second innovation is Logitech G LIGHTSPEEDTM technology, an end-to-end system optimization built on decades of wireless development experience that provides unrivaled connectivity and power performance. Compatible with the POWERPLAY wireless charging system, Logitech G also introduced two new flagship gaming mice, the new Logitech G903 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse and Logitech G703 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse.

"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."



Logitech G LIGHTSPEED Wireless Technology
Trusted by gaming enthusiasts and esports professionals worldwide, LIGHTSPEED wireless technology can be the difference between winning it all or walking away with nothing. Featuring a one-millisecond report rate and end-to-end signal optimization, LIGHTSPEED delivers 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.

LIGHTSPEED underpins both the POWERPLAY wireless charging system and G903 and G703 gaming mice, meaning these devices can pair directly with the POWERPLAY's integrated LIGHTSPEED wireless receiver for optimal signal strength and the convenience of charging and data over a single USB cable.

POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System
POWERPLAY reinvents the possibilities of wireless charging. A departure from existing wireless charging standards, which require the charging device to sit idle in one specific area to charge, POWERPLAY was designed from the ground up to deliver uninterrupted charging over its mousing surface - even while the mouse is in play. The wireless charging system uses a groundbreaking application of 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.

Logitech G903 and G703 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mice
The latest in Logitech G's long history of high performance gaming mice, both the G903 and G703 deliver on the brand's expectation of superior performance and unparalleled quality while also adding new LIGHTSPEED technology. Additional compatibility with the POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System provides untethered play, unlimited charging, and unmatched performance. Features of the G903 and G703 include:
  • Pixel-Precise Sensor: The Logitech G903 and G703 mice come equipped with the PMW3366 optical sensor, widely regarded by esports professionals and gaming enthusiasts as the best gaming mouse sensor on the market. Thanks to years of innovations, the PMW3366 has zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration across the entire DPI range (200-12,000 DPI). The resulting experience is incredible tracking accuracy and consistent responsiveness, even at speeds over 400 IPS.
  • Advanced Mechanical Button Tensioning: Precisely-tensioned metal springs and exclusive mechanical pivot hinges on G903 keep the primary left and right mouse buttons poised to trigger. This technology delivers an exceptionally clean and crisp button feel, response, and consistency. Logitech G improved on the design and boosted button durability up to 2.5x with 50 million click switches.
  • Supreme Comfort and Quality: Both mice deliver long-lasting comfort. The Logitech G903 features a configurable button layout and ambidextrous design that allows for left- or right-handed use and works with nearly any mouse grip style, including palm, claw and fingertip grips. The Logitech G703 features a lightweight, ergonomically designed body that was made to mold to your hand. Rubber grips on the left and right sides offer added control. You can use the mice directly out-of-the-box, or you can program the buttons with custom game commands using Logitech Gaming Software (LGS).
Pricing and Availability
The POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System are expected at retailers in August 2017 for a suggested retail price of $99.99. The Logitech G903 and G703 LIGHTSPEED wireless gaming mice are expected at global retailers beginning in June 2017 for suggested retail prices of $149.99 and $99.99, respectively.

So, $200-$250 for a wireless gaming mouse with (wired) charging pad? "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." So the mice have no built-in charging receiver?, it requires you to magnetically attach a POWERCORE module ($99.99) to the mouse you just spent $100-$150 on? So the "advantage" of this is, you don't have to set your mouse into a "dock" to recharge, just set it on the (wired) mousepad? Wait, they say this features "the convenience of charging and data over a single USB cable? Amazing, a single USB cable, JUST LIKE MY $20 WIRED MOUSE! All I can say is WTF...

I would pay $250 for a mouse like this. I've had 2 cords go "bad" on previous wireless mice, one from frequent plugging and the other from "too much movement". As a gamer this is a good thing. Wire mice feel like you are dragging the living room couch around.

You can use the mouse at the same time it's charging. After it's charged, you can unplug the Powerplay and use like a regular wireless mouse with a pad.

So does that mean my G900 is still compatible? If that's the case - I'm sold.

Why the hate? This is pretty innovative to be able to charge the mouse while it's on the mouse pad.

No hate, (I like logitech), just can't believe this is worth $200. Also not innovative, this technology has been around for years - since the 1800s - Nikola Tesla demonstrated it. This doesn't seem worth it. A Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard costs $30, and the batteries last 6 months to a year. A Logitech rechargeable wireless mouse costs around $50. Not worth $150 to me just so you don't have to recharge the mouse once a month. And you still have a USB cable going across your desk to the pad... I'd rather use my money for more meaningful upgrades like a better GPU or monitor. If you already have the best of every component, then buy this.

So now logicrap resorts to stealing:
I dunno man, Mionix had their chance to run with the induction charging idea. Given their current state, they seem more interested in making colorful Castor mice and mouse pads with donut and cheese burger patterns. :/

I think you can sum the cost with in it's response time, which it claims even rivals wired.

You need to be informed on how this mouse works.
And comparing it with 1800s technology. Double facepalm
And still saying you have to have the cable plugged it at all times. Triple facepalm.
And ignoring the fact that you can only have a wireless mouse, run out of batteries in middle of computer usage.

I will never go back to outdated wired mice. Wires get in the way of non-stationary devices. Wire on a keyboard make sense though.

I have a 9year old mouse mat -- does that count?? (Razer Destructor)

On a side note..

I paid $132 for my G900 just before christmas last year... And 6 months down the line now they have this... Logitech should offer a free 'trade up' to this new version for existing G900 owners that have had theirs for 5-6 months

I don't even use mouse pads most of the time.... just more BS I gotta keep clean and mess with...

Nice idea Logitech, but you need to just improve battery life on your gaming mice...

And still saying you have to have the cable plugged it at all times. Triple facepalm.
Only if you want the mouse to work; the receiver is in that box attached to the mouse pad - there is no separate dongle, a fact they're calling a bonus feature.

BUILT-IN WIRELESS
Integrated Receiver Close to Your Mouse

We designed POWERPLAY with a built-in LIGHTSPEED wireless receiver, so your gaming mouse can pair directly with the POWERPLAY base. This eliminates the need for an additional USB data receiver. You’re Welcome.
