Disassembling Newmen GX1 Pro

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I know some of the people here bought these before. Have any of you tried opening it up yet? Where are the under which part are the screws located?

Speaking of mouse disassembly, how do you deal with the removal of the feet? The material and the glue below often gets kind of screwed up in the process so I'm interested in what people do about those.

This isn't my photo so I'm sorry for the blurriness.



In regards to the skates, it's quite difficult to remove them while keeping them usable. Although, the smaller mouse feet, in my experience, are easier to keep in good condition. Most people tend to just get some new ones if they're available for the mouse. If there aren't any replacement feet available for the GX1, then you could use some intellimouse feet as replacements like this

i suspect it used a wrong current-limit resistor on the nav led, a3090 datasheet suggests using 189ohm , but it used one around 100ohm, thus generating more heat after using for a while. I replace that resistor with a 200ohm one , less heating and lod down a little.

Finished job. Very satisfied here. I didn't have any problem with the mouse generating heat.

Removed two metal weights inside mouse
Modded M1 M2 switches to actuate at lower force
Taped over some of the LEDs so there's no more distracting flashing in the side back part.

Honestly I don't understand why more mouse manufacturers don't use the hard plastic with a straight grooved pattern for the side. It feels decent to grip and is many times better than the traditional matte rubber latex or whatever coating that rubs off after a few months of heavy use.

Any higher res and non blurry photos for future modders?

New weight? Also how did the feet end up.

Mine didn't have any weights, pretty sure about that.

It comes with extra skates so that's cool.

Underrated mouse IMO

No new photos, sorry - already put the thing together and put the replacement feet on. Don't want damage feet to open it again.

You need to remove two screws located on left and right corners of the bottom feet to open the mouse.
I know a lot of OCN people bought the mouse while it was on sale on aliexpress, I bought mine from TaoBao. Mine is probably from a later batch, which would explain why mine has weights built in.
The weights are rectangular thick plates attached to the top shell, on the space below the green PCB for the DPI buttons.

I'll weight the thing later when I get home.

It's around 92g without the cable and weights.
