Long battery life and gaming don’t really belong in the same sentence, but Logitech is giving it a shot anyway. The company announced the G602 wireless gaming mouse today, which claims that it can run for “more than 1,400 hours” before needing new batteries, which is around two months of continuous 24/7 use.
The G602 is the latest addition to Logitech’s rebranded G series of gaming peripherals that the company launched back in March with a slew of new keyboards, mice, and headsets. The G602 sports 11 programmable buttons and is rated for 250 hours in full gaming mode, giving you all the power you could possibly need to make it through those long gaming sessions
The mouse also has an endurance mode that dials down the controls and the features for a more low-power state of mouse control. This will give you the previously-mention 1,400 hours of use before you have to change out the two AA batteries that it requires.
The mouse comes with Logitech’s exclusive Delta Zero sensor technology with 2500DPI – certainly not anything close to other top-tier gaming mice on the market, like the Razer Mamba’s 5600DPI. However, it’s certainly hard to beat a 250-hour battery life with a gaming mouse these days, and Logitech had to sacrifice just a bit of performance in order to keep the mouse chugging along for an extended amount time.
The Logitech G602 will begin selling next month for $80. The company will also be launching the new G440 Hard Gaming Mouse Pad for $30, as well as the $20 G240 Cloth Gaming Mouse Pad for high-DPI and low-DPI gaming, respectively.
