From the Best Gaming Laptops to the Best Gaming Motherboards, the evolution of the industry is at an all-time new high and that means one thing: new disruptive innovation. This time it involves state-of-the-art charging technology and it comes from Logitech – a pioneer in wireless gaming.

Electromagnetic Resonance Technology

Described as “the world’s first charging system for gaming mice,” Logitech’s Powerplay is solving one of the major stressors surrounding Gamers going wireless: long-lasting battery life and sufficient controller range. There is nothing more frustrating to a serious Gamer than having connection issues right before storming an opponent’s castle in Age of Empires or losing power in your gaming controller prior to completing a difficult quest in World of Warcraft. Thus the overwhelming reluctance to switch to wireless gaming mice.

Logitech’s all-new Powerplay wireless charging pad uses built-in electromagnetic resonance technology throughout its 10.8 x 12.6″ surface enabling gamers to power their mouse without stopping the action. By simply attaching a Powercore module to the base of a compatible mouse, Logitech’s innovative mouse mat transforms into a powerful charging station designed to never interfere with data transmission.

The G903 & G703 Gaming Mice

Compatible with Logitech’s all-new gaming mice (the G903 and G703), the Powerplay’s base is an action packed LIGHTSPEED wireless receiver delivering a “latency-free performance with a signal strength up to 16 x’s higher than its rivals in the gaming space.” Designed to not just match but exceed the performance of mice connected via cables, the combination of Logitech Powerplay and the new wireless mice is poised to disrupt the gaming industry. Eliminating the need to dock mice for recharging allows for continuous play.

“For decades, we’ve pioneered development in wireless gaming, and our new Powerplay and Lightspeed wireless technologies continue this commitment to wireless superiority,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech G. “With Powerplay, Lightspeed and our new G903 and G703 mice, you’ll get unbeatable precision, lag-free performance and infinite power, which gives gamers the highest-quality experience.”


In development for over four years, the Powerplay charging pad is backed by Logitech’s award-winning Lightspeed technology which features a one-millisecond report rate and end-to-end signal optimization. As previously mentioned, gamers will benefit from signal strengths of up to 16 x’s (12 dB) higher than the competition – making the Powerplay a must-have device when it becomes available in August of 2017.

Features of Logitech’s all-new G903 and G703 mice include:

Pixel-Precise Sensor: The Logitech G903 and G703 mice come equipped with the PMW3366 optical sensor, widely regarded by e-sports professionals and gaming enthusiasts as the best gaming mouse sensor on the market. Thanks to years of innovations, the PMW3366 has zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration across the entire DPI range (200-12,000 DPI). The resulting experience is incredible tracking accuracy and consistent responsiveness, even at speeds over 400 IPS.

Advanced Mechanical Button Tensioning: Precisely-tensioned metal springs and exclusive mechanical pivot hinges on G903 keep the primary left and right mouse buttons poised to trigger. This technology delivers an exceptionally clean and crisp button feel, response, and consistency. Logitech G improved on the design and boosted button durability up to 2.5x with 50 million click switches.

Supreme Comfort and Quality: Both mice deliver long-lasting comfort. The Logitech G903 features a configurable button layout and the ambidextrous design that allows for left- or right-handed use and works with nearly any mouse grip style, including palm, claw and fingertip grips. The Logitech G703 features a lightweight, ergonomically designed body that was made to mold to your hand. Rubber grips on the left and right sides offer added control. You can use the mice directly out-of-the-box, or you can program the buttons with custom game commands using Logitech Gaming Software (LGS).
