Logitech’s launches ‘Powerplay’, a Wireless Charging Pad Technology

Logitech just revealed a new Powerplay technology that builds charging directly into its mouse pad, allowing compatible mice to charge constantly while on the pad.

The wireless charging built inside the Powerplay mouse mat is proprietary to Logitech, and the company claims it took more than four years of and development to make it a reality. Logitech could have gone with something more ubiquitous like the Qi standard, and but Logitech answered that it wouldn’t have been possible to cover the whole surface (275mm x 320mm) of the pad with Qi. Corsair’s Project Zeus concept does use Qi, but consigns it to just one corner of the pad, whereas the Logitech G Powerplay mouse pad will charge your mouse wherever it’s positioned and no matter how it’s moving.

There’s no Mac compatibility listed, for one thing, and the idea of the wireless charging causing no interference to the wireless data transfer for the mouse to communicate with a PC certainly needs to be tested. It even comes with a choice of hard or cloth surface to suit your mousing preferences.

Alongside the Logitech G Powerplay, which is to be priced at $99.99 and released in August, Logitech has also announced the first two mice officially compatible with it: the G903 and G703. The G903 is a very modest upgrade from the G900 while the G703 is practically identical to the well liked G403; both of the two new models use the PMW3366 optical sensor and just add improved switches rated to last longer. The G903 will cost $149.99 and the G703 will be $99.99 when they go on sale later this month.
