Logitech’s revolutionary wireless charging mice and mouse mat, first announced back in June, are finally coming to our shores.
The Logitech Powerplay Wireless Charging System consists of a mouse pad with built-in wireless charging capabilities and a Powercore module that attaches to compatible gaming mice.
The Powerplay mouse pad uses electromagnetic resonance technology to create an energy field, enabling compatible mice to charge while being used on its surface, even while the mouse is in motion. It comes with a 2mm-thin base, where the wireless charging technology is embedded. A choice of a cloth and hard gaming mat will be provided which you can overlay on top of the base to get your preferred surface.
In order to make use of this wireless charging capability, the Powercore module would need to be attached magnetically to the base of the mouse. This transforms the energy field from the mouse pad into a charging current that is used to power the mouse. Currently, the Powercore module is only compatible with the Logitech G903 and G703.
The Powerplay Wireless Charging System will retail at S$199, and will be available at the following retail stores:
- Gamepro @ Marina Square
- Harvey Norman @ Millenia Walk
- Extreme Solution @ Sim Lim Square
- Challenger @ Bugis Flagship Store
It will also make an appearance at GamePro’s booth at CEF2017, happening on 2-5 November 2017.
The two mice that are presently compatible are the Logitech G903 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse and the Logitech G703 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse. The G903 is an updated version of the G900, featuring the same highly rated PMW3366 sensor with up to 12000 DPI sensitivity, as well as a similar lightweight and customizable design. Lightspeed Wireless Technology enables a 1ms report rate and end-to-end optimized wireless connectivity, rivalling even some of the best wired mice. It will also feature updated switches which should now last 50 million clicks. The G703 is the smaller sibling of the G903, though it is no less capable. It will feature similar specifications, but only comes in a right-handed design, and will only have 6 buttons, 5 less than the G903.
The G903 will retail at S$249, and the G730 will retail at $159. Both will be available at all major retail stores.
