First Feelings: The Logitech G502 Lightspeed Brings a Popular Mouse to a Wireless Modern

The chef package visited Logitech's Berlin publication to test how successfully the popular G502 mouse has turned into a wireless version. However, Logitech wanted to change the mouse too much, so we tried to find out if the popular game mouse is still the same after breaking the tail.

Recently, Logitech has released several Lightspeed wireless versions of its products. According to Logitech, Lightspeed technology has been specifically designed to solve the problems associated with wireless connectivity between the mouse and the computer, power supply and weight.

Externally, the G502 Lightspeed has remained largely unchanged. The mouse combines a futuristic yet fairly low-key look compared to many competitors. The black and blue color combination is broken by the mouse-top G-logo, which can be glittered or flickered in any color with RGB light.

In general, the G502 Lightspeed feels at least slightly above average in a very good one. I myself use the mouse with a combination of claw Grip and fingertip Grip, that is, I hold the mouse close to the fingertips. On the other hand, according to other testers present, the G502 Lightspeed sits well in perhaps a more traditional palm flu, where the hand takes more contact with the mouse. The mouse coating feels good in the hand and the mouse did not start to slip even in a slightly slower hand.

Of course, handling with mice is always personal, so if possible, it is advisable to test your mouse in your hand before making a purchase.

The buttons G502 in Lightspeed, like its predecessors, have 11 pieces, and their placement fits into their own hands, even though in the fast League of Legends game, the thumbs that hit the thumb key accidentally hit the mouse's precision knob a few times. Fortunately, changing the functions of the keys, as well as the mouse settings, such as adjusting the resolution and controlling the RGB light, is made quick and easy with the mouse's own G Hub software.

In addition to the left and right mouse buttons, there is a three-way scroll wheel, three thumb buttons, and shortcut controls for mouse accuracy. The mechanical key that acts on the roller action causes the roller to rotate either freely or by clicking.

According to Logitech, with Lightspeed, wireless is at best even faster than some of the wired options, so there should be virtually no delay in mouse movements. The heart of the mouse is already familiar from the previous wired G502 Hero, at its best, 16,000 DPI and the lowest accuracy of 100 DPI, which has proved its worth in the past. Of course, the accuracy of 16,000 DPI is probably too fast for most players.

At least for the first feelings, Logitech's promises about G502 Lightspeed's delay are true. The mouse was also fully involved in the fast motion, and there was no regret in precision. On the other hand, wireless makes the handling of the mouse much more free compared to the wired model. Particularly, the advantage of wireless is known in fast up and down movements. In addition to a freer motion, the G502 Lightspeed wireless also looks more stylish than wired.

Some of the players mock the wireless mice and keyboards, because they may end up in the worst possible moment. This manufacturer has tried to solve the problem with wireless G PowerPlay technology, where the Mousepad downloads the mouse wirelessly, so the combination will not end the battery in any situation. The new G502 Lightspeed also supports wireless charging, although the G PowerPlay Mousepad needs to be purchased separately.

If you do not have a G PowerPlay download mat, you are promising a Logitech G502 Lightspeed battery life when the RGB light is on for about 48 hours and without light for about 60 hours. In this case, of course, it is the user's responsibility to ensure that the battery does not end up in the worst possible situation at the worst possible time. During the first feelings, it was not possible to test the battery life in the actual situation.

Wireless mice are often slightly heavier than wired variants due to battery weight. However, in the case of G502 Lightspeed, the situation is just the opposite. The predecessor G502 Hero weighed 121 grams without extra weight, but the weight of G502 Lightspeed has dropped to 114 grams.

However, some users prefer heavier mice. For them, the G502 Lightspeed sales package includes 16 grams of extra weights, which you can choose to place under the mouse.

Deliveries of G502 Lightspeed will begin at the end of May. However, the mouse is already on sale at Logitech's own online store for 169 euros and is also available in a range of other dealers, possibly at a slightly lower price. The previous G 502 Hero mouse can be purchased from Logitech's own online store for one hundred euros, so you can pay a significant additional price for wireless. If you want to take advantage of G PowerPlay wireless, you will need to buy another 149 Euros system.

The wireless version definitely feels freer and better than the wired model, but it remains for everyone to consider whether it offers enough advantage in return for an additional price.
