Nice, I like the idea of this, even though I'll likely never use it due to current shapes and the pad being too small for me.

What's the point when they hold more than 24h of charge anyway?

You can just plug each in to a wall socket to charge over night or when at work. You don't even have to do it every day either unless you spend an insane amount of time on your PC.

true words. The cord and the feet are the onlys things on Logitech mice that seem objectively debatable. Luckily changing both is not a big deal and with a Paracord cable it feels almost like wireless anyway.

I mean I could argue that all you need to do is plug your cellphone in at night before you go to sleep but my whole family can't even do that simple task... "oh my phones dead, can I borrow yours" ?

Same concept applies here - people just don't charge things lol

Same. They could easily get my money because their wireless tech is amazing, instead they continue to reproduce those idiot shapes. I don't even bother trying g900 1st for the price and 2nd for buttons.

$100 for a charging mousepad? ($250 for a G903+POWERPLAY set) Kthxbye. I'll better keep my G900.
Btw black&white G703 looks awesome.

Logitech needs to clarify the difference between the technology in the 900/403 vs 903/703, because on the website they're all listed as having:
Quote:
LAG-FREE 2.4GHZ WIRELESS CONNECTION

So it seems like the only thing Lightspeed does is make them compatible with Powerplay, in which case labelling them as Lightspeed is bull, since it's the same wireless technology (i.e. unless you want to use their new mouse pad there is no reason to upgrade.)

Lightspeed is just the new marketing term Logitech is applying to their gaming wireless technology.
