Logitech's new wireless mice can now be charged wirelessly via the mousepad

There are two big reasons why gamers don't like wireless mice: lag, and the possibility of suddenly running out of battery mid game. Logitech has found a way to solve both problems with its latest mice, the G703 Lightspeed and the G903 Lightspeed.

Both mice utilize Logitech's newest technologies: Lightspeed and Powerplay. Lightspeed uses "end-to-end signal optimization" to cut latency down to a single millisecond, while the Powerplay system uses magnetic resonance wireless charging to continuously charge your mouse, although it does require a special Powerplay mousepad, which will be sold separately for US$100 (approx. RM426).

Between the two mice, the G703 is the simpler, lighter model of the two, while the G903 adds a customizable button layout, a more ambidextrous design and mechanical elements that boost the button feel and responsiveness.

Both mice are expected to be available in June 2017, while the Powerplay mousepad won't be available until August 2017. The G703 Lightspeed is expected to retail at US$100 (approx. RM426), while the G903 Lightspeed will be priced at US$150 (approx. RM638).
