Did logitech roll their own wireless protocol to minimize latency?

Are there any IR based mice? I think that would be the easiest option for someone wanting to sidestep most of the regulations with radio transmitters, while still letting you make your own protocol.

The G502 is one of the few Logitech mice I own that hasn't started double clicking yet, and I've had several of them. Hopefully they constructed the wireless one the same way in that regard.

They actually used decent Omron's back then, when they were first released. Still have two unopened G502's when they only had that single 'Light Blue' Logitech Colour.

Did actually buy one RGB model but it got pinched by one of my minions. Anything with RGB gets stolen off my desk quick smart.

Might actually buy this latest release simply because it's another Logitech model to add to my ongoing collection. Never pass on another chance of owning a Logitech mouse.

I own the powerplay system and have recently purchased the Logitech g502 lightspeed mouse. I installed the required Logitech g hub software and paired the powerplay with the g502 lightspeed mouse. The powerplay receiver works to receive the mouse signal, but it isn’t charging the mouse normally. I have installed the mouse charge unit in the mouse, and when I first paired the mouse to the powerplay system, it did charge the mouse. I understand that the mouse doesn’t charge at all times, but the documentation I have read suggests it keeps the mouse from 85 to 95 percent. After fully charging the first time, the mouse stopped the charge process and slowly started to drain with use. As it is now, the mouse is at 80 percent and hasn’t started to charge. Do I have to worry about this, or will the charging take over on its own at some point? Does anybody know?

Been using their Powerplay system for over four months now, very impressed with their setup. Works easily with their G Pro, G903 and shall indeed be getting this very same updated g502 model.

Don't worry it's the norm. All Logitech wireless mice use Lithium batts, hence it mustn't be fully charged otherwise you damage them. Hence why they stop it short and it has no ill effect on the performance and longevity of your mouse model.

In fact with their LGS software, the batteries might last at least six to eight years (my guess here) before finally failing. Good result for these type of batteries.

Yep. Turns out that this is the case. Thanks. Shortly after, it started to charge again on its own.
