frunction So the new G703 is lighter and slightly improved battery life.

Does anyone know yet if they changed the scroll wheel encoder and main switches to something more reliable?

Also, why does the G903 get 5x more battery life? A bit of a let down here, was expecting battery life like the GPW. Guess that's the $50 difference.

I found using a cork base equally as good.

Tried using those cable connectors to metal bases and it seems to fail with me. Never noticed anything different at all whilst using any mouse.

Found that most products produced today is quite good at removing most of the static electricity and besides I have a wooden floors in the house, so this pad you're advocating would probably suit those that live inside a carpeted or vinyl covered floor.

p1r4nh4 I reduced the weight of my G403W to 72grams. Same could be done to a G703

I was planning to rma it anyways, thanks for the learning experience you gave me even though i made a mess lol.
The scrolling wheel will work again when its fully dried off of it.

If the straw isnt 'clicking' the button, then there's no way way get the fluid in. it's really self explanatory. Make sure you do both buttons for good measure. It may take several applications to make sure it's cleaned.

FaLLeNAn9eL Just saw this. Some one on Reddit bought a 3mm sheet of cork board and made a spacer so he could use larger mouse pads with the power mat. Pretty sweet idea.

No there is no video on it. It's probably easier if you had a 2nd person slightly pulling up on the plunger for you so you can use both hands to get perfect positioning with the straw but its best to just do it yourself (yes it can be done).

Is there any video on youtube about it by the way, i'm not sure where the microswitch is and i'm afraid i might break something.

I wasn't aware about your wireless problem. My tip was for those who were using it wired and had repeatable intermittent click contacts (aka double click but its not really a doubleclick, it's the switch breaking the connection internally).

Deoxit D5 is a nonconductive contact cleaner that helps improve contacts on metals and circuits. If there is dirt or inpurities on the copper or tin leaf switch (whatever metal its made of), Deoxit will improve the connection and prevent the problem.

Remember how buttons work.
There is always an electrical connection in a button. Pressing the button sets the ground on, reducing the voltage to 0v. This is how the button knows it's being depressed.
If there is a short in the connection, it severs it.
