When it comes to PC gaming technology, most gamers are moving away from wired products, such as; headsets and mice. Wireless products give players more freedom to move around, as well as not worrying about wires getting tangled. Today, Logitech G has announced two new products to their wireless family: Logitech G POWERPLAY and Logitech G LIGHTSPEED.
Logitech G POWERPLAY is the world’s first wireless charging system for gaming mice that provides players with continuous charging while gaming and at rest. POWERPLAY allows charging over its mousing surface – even while the mouse is in play. The wireless charging system 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.
How does the POWERPLAY work? Well it has an energy field which is captured and transformed into a charging current by the POWERCORE module, which attaches magnetically to compatible wireless gaming mice, including the Logitech G903 and G703.
Logitech G LIGHTSPEED technology features a one-millisecond report rate and end-to-end signal optimization, it also delivers a competition-level responsiveness with speeds faster than many competitive wired gaming mice. LIGHTSPEED has wireless signal strength up to 16x (12dB) which is higher than the competition. LIGHTSPEED also has a unique Frequency Agility Mechanism that automatically avoids problematic interference, allowing for a smooth and consistent performance.

The Logitech G903 and G703 mice come equipped with the PMW3366 optical sensor, which used by esports professionals and gaming enthusiasts as the best gaming mouse sensor on the market. Why are they best on the market? Thanks to, the PMW3366 the mice has zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration across the entire DPI range (200-12,000 DPI). This allows players for incredible tracking accuracy and consistent responsiveness, even at speeds over 400 IPS.
