This thread is about information you need to replace or exchange your mouse cable.

You will find required informations:

  • connector size
  • pin (color) arrangement
  • video tutorial (down below)

The connectors with the same size are compatible to each other.


The most common connector is called "JST 2.0 PH 5-Pin".
Dimensons: length 10.5mm, hight 7mm, with 4mm
Later called "Standard Plug"

A smaller connector variant is the "JST 1.5 ZH 5-Pin".
Dimensons: length 9mm, hight 6mm, with 4.8mm

"JST 1.25 GH 5-Pin".
Dimensons: length 7.5mm, hight 5mm, with 4.15mm

Size reference picture:


from left to right: Logitech G9(x), Steelseries Rival, Logitech G500, JST 2.0 (nearly all other mice)

The internal plug contains 5 cables with crimps. This cables connects your mice with the USB port.
It contains:
black - ground
green - data+
white - data -
red - 5volt
thick black - shield (could also be yellow for some kind of "shield")

View for the pin arrangment: you look at the 5 plastic snaps and the cables coming down out.

Nice thread. Maybe some more info about size differences and compatibility. Standard plugs should all be compatible, right? Assuming you match their color. The g9x has the smallest plug i've seen I'm not sure if any other mice use it(besides the g9?) Second smallest I have come across the g5/g500 cable and they can be interchanged.

Burned my friend's kinzu v1 because of the wrong pin arrangement here T_T (and because I'm ******ed).<br>
Please edit the topic to prevent such cases in future.<br><br>

That was like one of the points why people wanted to buy that mouse. Apart from the shape.
