A Wireless Mouse That Lasts FOREVER! - HOLY $H!T Ep. 20

Posted on the YouTube video but will repeat here: OK Linus I have a question, I currently have a Glorious PC Gaming Race mouse pad that covers my desk. In fact its the same one as the white one you were using in the video only mine is black, could I stick the Powerplay under my mouse pad and have no problems with charging the mouse and having a smooth surface to glide on top of

The way I look at it is the mouse pad is actually not as expensive as it looks at first. The price tag is high for sure, but you're also getting two mouse mats that alone cost about £60 (probably $60) on Amazon, so that leaves the charging base costing around £/$40 - definitely not a bad price. G903 is expensive though, costs just as much as the old G900 back to its original launch. All things considered I don't think that the combo will drop the price by a lot. The mouse will get cheaper a little bit, but the mouse pad itself with no competition will probably keep it as it is for a while.

Can't be arsed watching the video

Me too

The thumbnail alone is juvenile, so I bet the mouse is like Mickey Mouse or something which is fitting.

Any ole wireless mouse will do for me.

Only time I payed for a mouse was when I wanted to play cs:go abroad. 5 bucks...

Do you steal your computer mice the rest of the time?

Watching this really reminded me of the Wacom Graphire 4 that I used to have, which came with a "wireless" mouse. Like the pen, the mouse has to be over the active area of the tablet to be able to receive power and communicate button/scroll input to the tablet (the tablet tracks the pen/mouse with its antenna grid thing. Obviously the PowerPlay is much different.

 

Because I found that my Cordless Optical Trackman uses between 2-9mA of power, and its receiver uses about 10mA last August, I wasn't too surprised that the battery percentage didn't move at all with however much Linus gamed with the mouse. Yay for Logitech's power efficiency? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

Just a couple cents of mine that I wanted to toss in. >.> *flees*

Love the idea, and I don't find 100$ that excessive. Not cheap, but at least "reachable" by many budgets. If you go for this you go because you don't want cords and also you use a lot the mouse, not because it looks neat, for that get a Razer Mamba, that thing is beautiful and comes with a huge impractical base to charge it up.

Why does Linus say this is the first wireless mouse with mousepad charging ? I had something like this in the early 2000s... sure, it wasn't as good, but it was the same thing basically.

Not an original idea like others have mentioned, but still a nice implementation. If it was a bit cheaper then I might consider grabbing one with a G703 to replace my ageing G9X.

My Logitech keyboard and mouse are still going strong after two years. So that's good enough for me

I converted my Gigabyte mouse to wireless power with a 4.2v lithium polymer 150mAh pack and a standard Qi charger. It uses a MSP430 mcu I was able to bridge over wireless rs232 since USB is serial anyways. but nice to see this available without hacking :)

this is worse than what i have already, because i have to use their shitty mousepad and that means that i would have to ditch my mousepad which covers all of my table, which prevents my wrist from resting on the sharp edge on the wood (because soft fabric >>>>>>>>> sharp edge on wood, even though both is bad)

138 is a good number.

I'd rather see Edzel play with the mouse for the 30 minutes doing something like CS:GO and see if when being ACTUALLY MOVED AROUND (lets be honest that crap was basically sitting still for 90% of the time Linus was "playing") that it can still hold a charge.

The US site doesn't ship to Canada, and the powerplay just doesnt exists in the Canadian site (though the 703 and 903 are available there)

Bummer.

well, actually, I once had a mouse charging from its own mat. In fact, it was working only while placed on the mat. IDK if links are allowed here, but you can find it very easy by putting a4tech NB-30D into your favorite search engine.
