not exactly the solution I want, the reason why I want to turn it off and on, on command is eventually one or two of the leds eventually die
red is no longer red or green is no longer green and so forth
but not having it on all the time prolongs things
after having an rgb keyboard and mouse, i'd had them go almost 2 years before the leds starting dying
turning off the system is an alternative but i rather have the rest of my components on
kinda strange since i've never had single led hardware die before

spyshagg took me a few days but the mouse managed to drop some hefty weight off!

from 121g down to 89g. No buttons were removed. Every button works.


The top chassis is incredibly heavy with all the buttons plastics and cover, at around 50g!
The bottom chassis weighted just 22g
The original scroll wheel weighted 13g

Cover on




Cover off

SirWaWa after 2 years, maybe 2.5? the blue led is burning or burnt out
when it color cycles it can't produce blue, teal and if i switch profiles it can't do white, it's like an off white now
I have another one, almost new (been in use for a few months) for compare

spyshagg My metal wheel is gaining some green coloration kind of rust. Is it bacterial or something?

I think the wheel is nickel plated or something. I too suffer from palmar over hydration (lol) during the warmer months. I have zero rust or issues for that matter with this mouse. I've had it for about a year now.
This is what I found about rusty scrool wheel:

too many reports just to be a coincidence...

dontspamme Btw, you might like the G403 better than the G502 shape-wise.
Check it out.

But be warned:
The G403 has VERY, VERY low lift-off-distance.
Coming from the G402, which has beautifully high LoD, this might be a deal breaker for you (it was for me. My G403 is buried in the mouse graveyard for now, until I need it's Omron switches some day).
