Logitech's G602 wireless gaming mouse packs massive battery life, 11 programmable buttons

 

screen-shot-2013-08-26-at-3.57.22-pm.png

 

Hate swapping out the drained batteries in your mouse during intense Battlefield sessions? Then Logitech's vying for your dough with its new G602 wireless gaming mouse. The latest G-series entrant's battery is rated for 250 hours in gaming mode, and up to a whopping 1,100 on its endurance setting. Around the mouse you'll find 11 buttons, all of which are assignable via Logitech's Gaming Software. As you'd expect, this kit also features the company's ultra-fast 4,000 DPI Delta Zero optical sensor and a minuscule wireless USB dongle for computer hookup. The G602 is set to launch in September for $80, alongside the $30 G440 Hard Gaming Mouse Pad for "high-DPI gaming" and the $20 G240 Cloth Gaming Mouse Pad for "low-DPI gaming." You'll find the press info after the break.

Bluetooth?

The nano receiver uses standard radio frequencies.

May have to take a look at one of these.. it's the battery life that's been turning me off of wireless, 250+ hours would certainly change my mind.

Bluetooth?

No mention of Bluetooth on the Logitech specs page.

I've been waiting on an upgrade for the Logitech M555b for a long time, if it's on their proprietary 2.4Ghz then no thanks. :(

My Performance MX has started to get the infamous "double-click" issue, so I might have to replace it with one of these.   That's some seriously impressive battery life.

Oh god, look at all the side button your thumb could hit.. I HATE side buttons. I'm always accidentally hitting it and going back on a web page.

Eh, I never do that with mine. I find side buttons great for voice comms.

Also, I'm not particularly liking the visual design that Logitech are opting for at the moment, it just looks like something that would have been released in 2007.

Depends on the mouse, I've had a few like that, placed in a bad position where you'd constantly hit one of them by accident, usually at the worst possible time like editing a forum post and then the browser goes back a page, losing the changes. Had to shop around for one that fit my hand right.. this one has a design similar to the one I'm using now, looks like your thumb rests under the buttons so you can still grip the mouse properly without any oopsies.. you have to move your thumb to actually hit them. They're pretty handy once you find the right mouse.
