Tired of having the battery in your favorite wireless mouse die just when you need it most? Then you might be interested in hardware maker Logitech's newest wireless mouse, the G602, which reportedly boasts a 1,400-hour battery life.

According to Logitech, the G602 runs on two standard AA batteries. To hit that 1,400-hour limit, Logitech says the mouse uses a special "Endurance Mode".

However, if precision is the name of the game, users can flick a mechanical switch on the device to engage "Performance Mode," though this sets the battery life back to about 250 hours.

Performance Mode Designed with Gamers in Mind

Performance Mode will be most popular with gamers who need pinpoint accuracy when playing first-person shooters like Call of Duty or Battlefield online. However, most other users will want to take advantage of Endurance Mode.

"We set an outrageous goal, and we hit it. Doubling, tripling or even quadrupling the battery life of ordinary wireless gaming mice wasn't enough," noted Logitech gaming business group general manager Ehtisham Rabbani.(Source:

"We wanted to bring gamers an innovation that would change the face of wireless gaming forever," Rabbani added.

"With 250 hours of battery life, the G602 does exactly that. It's time for gamers to get real science behind them so something as fundamental as a battery doesn't get in the way of winning."

"Delta Sensor" Tech Helps Mouse Achieve 2,500 DPI

For those who do choose to use the G602's Performance Mode, they'll find this to be an extremely accurate mouse. The device's optical sensor achieves a dots per inch (DPI) rating of 2,500; to hit that high, Logitech is using what it calls "Delta Zero" sensor technology.

Logitech says the G602 also gives users access to 11 fully programmable keys.

The G602 will be released in September 2013. It's expected to retail for $79.99, putting it on par with high-performance mice from rivals like Razer. (Source:
