Hello techpowerup.

So then i decided to fix sticky g15 v1 and mod it just to have that decend fresh look as well as a better led color scheme.
What i did was complete disassemble.
Remove that sticky layer it has by washing it complete even the keys.
Internals as well (apart from circuits)
Applied bamboo vinyl sheet (used blow dryer)
Replaced the blue led (11pcs) to white ones.
Polished the black plastic.
Done....

Well these always come in handy because of their lcd displaying anything you like.

I still use my original G15, I need to download the apps again.
Good thing logitech has support for windows 10 64bit, these keyboards are still work using.

Lol dont worry they are durable. This g15 is way too old and had been abused alot but still worth using.

Lol yeh thats g15 v2 and abit compact. I have that one too. But not sure if it should be modded or not.

well i got them from a local china shop. You can always order them from ali express or dhgate.
The smallest size of all. There is a circuit kind of strip, holding the leds in series. You need a solder to take them out and put the new ones. Not a hard job for anyone with a steady hand.

Ok, thanks would you have a link or anything? That way I know they will work assuming yours did...are they bright enough? Soldering no problem, thanks.

these are the ones i used. I guess they were 3mm or may be less.
Honestly the white ones were the most bright even better then the blue ones g15 has.
The best is to disassemble the keyboard desolder one diode and visit a hardware shop. Match the size, round shape would not be a problem as i put rounded ones instead of square ones g15 already had.
about other colors, i cant guarantee the brightness. Yet i had seen people using mulitple color diodes to mod their g15.
