I’ll never forget the first time I saw the Logitech G502 Proteus Core. I had (and actually still have) a Logitech G500s at home, and I thought that with a few tweaks, it could be a perfect mouse. Then, I stumbled across the G502 and knew I was looking at something special. When I got my hands on it, I awarded it a perfect score and thought it’d be a long time before I saw another mouse as good.
That was five years ago, and since then, Logitech has done very little to tamper with the G502’s winning formula. There’s now RGB lighting, and you can often find the peripheral for $60 instead of its usual $80, but the mouse just didn’t seem to need much else. In fact, I was surprised when Logitech contacted me and said the G502 was getting a big upgrade.
But the company wasn’t kidding, because the Logitech G502 Lightspeed ($150, or less with one of our Logitech promo codes) is completely wireless — and it’s also compatible with Logitech’s inventive PowerPlay wireless-charging system ($100), if you’re into that kind of thing. Everything that made the G502 wired variant work is still here, from the high-quality sensor, to the ergonomic design, to the inventive scroll-wheel options.

To be fair, the G502 Lightspeed falls just short of its predecessor’s lofty example due to a high price, a few inconvenient design decisions and the cruel, relentless flow of time. (There are simply better mice on the market today than what the original G502 faced.) But if you’ve always wanted one of the best gaming mice ever made without the inconvenience of wires, the G502 Lightspeed is almost as good as they come.
If you’ve used any of the previous iterations of the G502, then you already know what the G502 Lightspeed looks like. For the rest of you, it’s a large (5.2 x 3.0 x 1.6 inches), right-handed, ergonomic mouse with a curved thumb rest and textured grips.
On the mouse’s topside, you’ll find a whopping 10 buttons. There’s a right-click button, a left-click button and a clickable scroll wheel; right below that, there’s a button that adjusts the scroll wheel’s resistance. I’ve always found this feature extremely useful, since sometimes you want precision scrolling and sometimes you want to blast through a whole page in seconds.
Beneath that adjuster, there’s a programmable button that, by default, checks the battery level. Off to the left side of the left-click button, there’s a pair of dots-per-inch (DPI) sensitivity-adjustment buttons. On the side, there are two large thumb buttons, and just below them, there’s a «sniper» button that can temporarily lower the DPI. This is admittedly a lot of buttons for a not-gigantic mouse, but they’re laid out well and never feel too crowded.
The mouse gets considerably more interesting once you flip it over, though. That’s where you’ll find an on/off switch and a small, circular pop-out compartment. By default, this compartment stores the wireless dongle and can also store two optional 4-gram weights (more on this shortly). However, if you own the PowerPlay setup, you can also swap in the PowerPlay battery, which charges wirelessly as you play. This is a useful feature, although it does limit your weight options.
That brings us to tunable weights. Like the wired G502, the G502 Lightspeed has a removable panel where you can add metallic weights. The design isn’t exactly the same as on the older mouse, since the G502 Lightspeed needs more room for wireless circuitry, but the result is the same.
I actually prefer the G502 Lightspeed’s approach to weights; this mouse uses small, trapezoidal weights rather than the previous model’s convoluted, semi-hexagonal models. Adding and removing weights is much easier than before, and there’s still a little carrying case to store extra weights. It’s a pain that you can’t use the 4-gram weights and the PowerPlay attachment simultaneously, but this is an annoyance not a deal breaker.

I do, however, have one small criticism of the G502’s design — which may actually be a point in the device’s favor. The design hasn’t changed at all in five years, which is admirable in a way. But since 2014, Logitech has launched two fantastic high-end wireless mice series: the Logitech G900 (currently the G903) and the Logitech G Pro Wireless, both of which also retail for $150 by default. Compared to the angular, bulky G502, both newer mice seem positively futuristic, with sleek curves and, in the G903’s case, swappable parts to offer complete ambidexterity.
The G502’s design still holds up extremely well, but for the same price, Logitech’s other high-end wireless mice may feel a bit better to hold. Once I finished testing the G502, I went right back to the G903, and I haven’t looked back.
The G502 Lightspeed runs on the Logitech G Hub software, which lets users customize DPI (100-16,000), control backlighting and program all of the mouse’s buttons. The software is pretty straightforward, and you can even program a secondary set of commands known as G-Shift. You’ll have access to these whenever you hold down a button of your choice. (The sniper button is a good choice for this, in my experience, although I didn’t use it too much in general.)
While you can indeed program the color of the G logo on the palm rest, that’s just about the only part of the mouse that lights up. (The DPI monitor on the side lights up, too, but it’s so small you’ll hardly notice it.) While RGB features have never been the primary reason to buy or avoid a mouse, this one is going to look plain black most of the time. So bear that in mind if you’re all about aesthetics.
The wireless performance was flawless in my experience, whether I was deep into a gaming session or simply surfing the web.
Naturally, the G502 Lightspeed’s most important feature is the mouse’s wireless capability. Like with Logitech’s other wireless gear, the performance was flawless in my experience, whether I was deep into a gaming session or simply surfing the web. Furthermore, Logitech estimates that the mouse can go up to 48 hours between charges. This is possible, if you turn down the lighting and remember to actually turn it off between sessions — unless you use PowerPlay, of course, in which case you won’t have to charge the mouse at all.
This won’t surprise anyone who’s played with a Logitech G mouse within the last few years, but the G502 Lightspeed performed flawlessly in games. With the peripheral in hand, I built up massive Zerg armies in StarCraft: Remastered, gunned down foes in Overwatch, played cunning card games in Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales and slew deadly harpies in World of Warcraft. The G502 Lightspeed proved responsive, accurate and precise.
When you find a wireless gadget that performs even better than its wired counterpart, it’s hard to ask for more.
In fact, I happen to have an older, wired G502 version handy, so I was able to compare the two devices head to head. The Lightspeed feels at least as good as the older model — and arguably better, since it has a better sensor and no wires to get in the way. When you find a wireless gadget that performs even better than its wired counterpart, it’s hard to ask for more.
The G502 is no longer the absolute last word in gaming mice, so it makes sense that the G502 Lightspeed is not the absolute last word in wireless gaming mice. I prefer the G903, personally, and there is certainly something to be said for inexpensive models like the Corsair Harpoon RGB Wireless ($50).
But still, the G502 is an unqualified success, and it’s sure to please fans of the original who have been longing to go wireless (or simply any gamer looking for a great wireless mouse). Just start saving your pennies; this mouse is pretty pricey, particularly if you want the PowerPlay system to go with it.

Logitech G502 Lightspeed review: The Swiss Army knife of mice
If it had been released even a few years earlier, the Logitech G502 would easily be among the best mice available for gamers of any stripe. As things stand, it’s a much harder call, and one that’s dependent on what genre of games you play most often and what you prioritize when shopping for a mouse.
This reality isn’t so surprising when you consider the fact that the G502 Lightspeed is almost physically identical to the G502 Proteus Core, a mouse that was originally released all the way back in 2014. At the time, the original G502 was one of the best mice available, period. Today, even with a slew of tweaks and improvements, its successor is still a more niche product, primarily because of the lingering influences of its ancestry.
Despite all of that, the G502 Lightspeed and its corded cousin, the G502 Hero, remain some of the most popular mice out there. In fact, as I write this review, the G502 Lightspeed is once again sold out on Logitech’s own web store. So, what is it that makes this design so lasting and so able to maintain a user base, even at a time when many of its specifications should put it out of the running? Let’s take a closer look at one of the most popular, and in many ways most controversial, gaming mice available today.
Form factor and build
The G502 Lightspeed launched as a 114g mouse at a time when most manufacturers, including Logitech itself, were attempting to market wireless mice in the 55g to 70g range. The oddity of this timing becomes even more strange when noting that the mouse actually ships with extra weights, specifically four 2g weights and two 4g weights that can all be slotted into the purpose-built compartment on the bottom of the G502 Lightspeed to add as much as 16 extra grams of weight.
This is a holdover from the original G502, which launched at an even heavier 121g, with an additional 18g in weights one could add on top of that for a 139g mouse, a comical weight by today’s standards. But, back in 2014, there was a trend among mouse makers that focused on the supposed «stability» provided by adding extra weight to mice. This is a bit more understandable when accounting for the optical and laser sensors in use at the time, which were more prone to jittery, inaccurate movements. Still, the benefits of extra weight were more marketing fodder than practical science, as evidenced by those same manufacturers now claiming lightweight mice are the way to go.
So, why did Logitech retain what appears to be such an outdated feature? The most likely answer is that the G502 Lightspeed was never going to be a lightweight mouse. It just has too many buttons, too many switches, and too many features to allow the sort of hollow, simplistic constructions that let mice such as Logitech’s G Pro X Superlight achieve weights like 63g. So, if it wasn’t going to be light anyway, why not just make it as feature-packed as possible and let it retain its extra weight system for the niche users that still preferred it?
That «everything but the kitchen sink» philosophy appears to be what Logitech ran with when designing the G502 Lightspeed. This mouse is loaded. It includes 11 fully programmable buttons, two-zone RGB lighting, a tilt scroll wheel with support for Logitech’s «Hyper-fast» scrolling, its top-end Hero sensor, its low-latency Lightspeed wireless technology, and compatibility with its Powerplay wireless charging system. We’ll cover each feature in more detail later. But, with all of them on board a wireless mouse with a 60-hour battery, it’s actually impressive the G502 Lightspeed isn’t even heavier.
The result is a hefty mouse that’s ready for anything. Need tons of macros for your favorite MMORPG? It’s got you covered. Need precision scrolling for in-game weapon switching and free-wheeling, super-fast scrolling for flying through spreadsheets? It can handle that too. In short, Logitech made the Swiss Army knife of mice that can do anything you need it to, except being lightweight.
It’s important to note that, for many users, the G502’s weight is simply not an issue. I’ve lost track of the number of memes mocking users claiming they can’t use a mouse because it’s a few grams heavier. Obviously, if you’re of the belief that lightest is best, this mouse isn’t for you. But, if you’re on the other end of the spectrum, or at least willing to compromise a bit, read on for the massive list of features this extra weight buys you.
11 programmable buttons
This includes the left and right primary buttons, two extra buttons adjacent to the left mouse button, three left-side buttons, a single programmable button behind the scroll wheel, and the left and right tilt and middle-click buttons on the scroll wheel itself. All of these can be programmed via Logitech’s G Hub software to serve as normal mouse functions, keyboard keys, macros, media controls, and more. The result is a mouse that’s adept at supporting literally any use case you can throw at it, whether it’s gaming-centric or work-focused.
Two-zone RGB Lighting
RGB lighting is one of those things that immediately mark a mouse, keyboard, or any other peripheral as «for gamers.» While some lightweight mice are now leaving it behind to save a few grams, the G502 has no such concerns. This means users can set the exact tone of the back-lit Logitech G on the mouse’s back panel, as well as the three LEDs in its on-device battery indicator. Both are also compatible with the company’s Lightsync technology, which allows users to match colors across multiple Logitech peripherals.

Tilt scroll wheel with «Hyper-fast» scrolling
The G502’s scroll wheel has two modes. In its standard mode, it provides tactile feedback with each click of its scroll and moves just a few lines per spin. However, if you press the mode toggle button located right behind the wheel, it shifts into «Hyper-fast» mode, which removes any click or friction from the formula. This produces a wheel that can be spun as fast as you like, allowing you to blaze through long web pages, fly down spreadsheets, or quickly modify zoom levels or progress bars in editing software.
In my opinion, Logitech’s Hyper-fast scroll is one of the company’s best inventions. However, it’s one that has been left off of most of its recent gaming-centric offerings due to the fact the heavy, metal scroll wheels that are best at retaining momentum for long scrolls add too much weight. But, once again, the G502 Lightspeed doesn’t much care about being lightweight.
The Hero Sensor is Logitech’s best. It’s currently used in every one of its top-end gaming offerings, including the recent G303 Shroud Edition. There’s a reason for this, it’s just that good. It provides exceptional accuracy, a complete lack of unwanted influence on movement tracking, and the ability to sip astonishingly little power when used in wireless models. Like all recent Logitech offerings that use it, the Hero’s implementation just works, without you ever needing to think about it. It does precisely what a sensor should.

Lightspeed wireless connectivity
Wireless gaming mice used to be considered inferior to their wired counterparts due to the latency that wireless connections could introduce. The immediacy with which your inputs get processed and produced in your game of choice is of paramount importance, especially in fast-paced first-person shooters where a delay of just a few milliseconds can literally be the difference between life and death.
It took several years, but Logitech became one of the first companies to produce a wireless mouse that had latency on par with, or even faster than, most of its wired counterparts. That technology continued to improve until it was standardized around Logitech’s Lightspeed protocol. Like all Lightspeed-based mice, the G502 Lightspeed performs exceptionally, creating no discernible lag or latency when it’s used anywhere within the 10-meter range of its wireless dongle.
Powerplay wireless charging
The Powerplay system uses a small, optional puck that can be inserted into a variety of Logitech-branded mice. Once in place, this puck is able to receive power from the company’s Powerplay-equipped mousepad, keeping wireless mice topped up at all time, without ever having to plug them in.
Having personally used the Powerplay Wireless Charing System with several mice, I did enjoy its ability to keep wireless units charged with zero thought needed. However, I stopped using it myself because it limited me to the very few mousepads that come with the system, none of which were large enough for my tastes.
That said, I’m still glad to see its inclusion here, and in all future Logitech mice. This is thanks entirely to third parties doing something Logitech itself should have done years ago: using the Powerplay slot to create a charging dock. These small units can be had cheaply (usually under $30), and provide any Powerplay-equipped Logitech mouse with a quick-connect, magnetic docking station that will keep it topped up with almost no effort. They even include a slot for the mouse’s wireless dongle. If you own any Powerplay-equipped mouse, I’d urge you to get one of these inexpensive charging accessories.
I’ve already made it clear that the Hero sensor and Lightspeed wireless technology in the G502 Lightspeed were essentially flawless. While I can’t heap quite the same level of praise on every other aspect of the mouse, I will say right at the top of this section that it is an excellent mouse for any gamer that’s willing to accept its mass.
The availability of the 11 included programmable buttons means things like melee attacks, grenade tosses, communication pings, long lists of spells, in-game macros, and anything else you could think of are all available instantly. The only type of mice that might have more versatility are those models designed specifically for MMORPGs, like Logitech’s own G600 or Razer’s Naga.
These extra inputs were a massive boon in games like Halo Infinite and Apex Legends, where having instant access to a variety of specific pings and interactions can help you better coordinate with your team. Even games like Overwatch, which will lack a ping system until the Overwatch 2 beta begins in April, can benefit from extra inputs to trigger its useful canned voicelines that ask for healing or call for a retreat, without having to pipe up yourself.
All of these extra buttons feel acceptably tight and precise, and all feel as responsive as anything, wired or wireless, I’ve ever used. While I’ve made it clear across multiple reviews that I’m not a huge fan of Logitech’s continued use of the same Omron switches it has been relying on for years, the G502 feels as good as any Logitech mouse, and more than crisp enough for any but those with the most exacting standards for the tactile feedback of their clicks.
Now, getting back to that weight issue. I cannot, unfortunately, say it doesn’t have an effect on the G502 Lightspeed’s performance. As with any heavier mouse, quick changes in direction always felt like they lagged behind a tiny bit, when compared to lighter mice, because of the momentum that extra weight imparts during rapid movements. Rather than feeling like an extension of my hand and arm, as the G Pro X Superlight does, the G502 Lightspeed feels like a noticeable drag on my hand, slowing my movements and reactions, even if by just a tenth of a second.
How greatly this will impact you depends entirely on your game preferences, arm strength, and sensitivity to such issues. If you’re exclusively an MMORPG player preferring titles like World of Warcraft or Final Fantasy XIV, the weight is very likely a non-issue for you. Similarly, if you’re used to older, heavier models of mice like Zowie’s well-beloved offerings or Logitech’s own legacy designs, then you’ll probably feel right at home with the G502 Lightspeed. That said, if you play something where microscopic movements and pixel-perfect twitch aiming are extremely important, like Valorant or CS:GO, I can’t recommend the G502 Lightspeed, or any mouse north of 80g, for that matter.
Chances are, if you’re one of the gamers for whom that extra weight will be a problem, you’re already aware this mouse isn’t ideal for you. But, if you think you can accept, or at least ignore, the extra weight, the G502 Lightspeed offers an exceptionally responsive, well-made, and versatile solution that provides flexible charging options and the backing of one of the most well-known makers of high-end gaming mice on the market.
The G502 Lightspeed is an top-tier mouse with one foot in the past. But, for the right user, those historical influences are irrelevant and bring with them more than enough benefits to be more than worth any inherent lack of progressive design philosophy.
Logitech G502 X Lightspeed: redesigned icon [full review]
O Logitech G502 X Lightspeed is a smart upgrade for your gaming mouse (see official website)🇧🇷 Like its predecessor, the Logitech G502 Lightspeed, G502 X Lightspeed is comfortable, functional and beautifully designed device with excellent core performance and many additional features. However, unlike its predecessor, the G502 is a little more elegant, a little more customizable and a little cheaper, at least for the standard version.
Since the G502 X Lightspeed is still the Logitech G502, it’s admittedly hard to find any serious flaws. The retention of RGB lighting compared to the more expensive Logitech G502 X Plus is a small step backwards, and for a mouse in this price range, it should have Bluetooth connectivity.
But otherwise, the G502 X Lightspeed is a contender for the best gaming mouse and the best wireless gaming mouse you can buy. Let’s talk a little about the Logitech G502 X Lightspeed and if in doubt it’s just leave it in the comments.
Logitech G502 X speed settings
Before we go into detail about the Logitech G502 X Lightspeed, it is important to note that there are two variants of this gamer mouse:
- th design. , USB Wireless , Software Compatibility Logitech G hub, long life battery and receiver that also supports Logitech G keyboards.
- There’s also the Logitech G502 X Plus, which sells for a bit more and has the same functionality as Lightspeed in all but one area: RGB lighting. The G502 X Plus has a beautiful and quirky LED strip running across the palmrest where you can program different lighting schemes, from rainbow waves to static colors. This device has a slightly shorter battery life (130 hours instead of 140) and slightly more weight, but otherwise looks identical to the G502 Lightspeed.

The Logitech G502 X Lightspeed has so many programmable buttons that MMO fans might be wondering what they can do with so many features available. Since these additional buttons are unobtrusive, real-time strategy (RTS) and multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) players should have no problem. About the gamer mouse it is really comfortable to wear for many hours. No wrist and finger fatigue. I also liked the G Hub software, which can be used to customize controls and buttons.
The mouse is compatible with Windows, but it can also be used with a MacBook, but remember that not all mouse functions work with a Mac. Either way, the Logitech G502 X Plus is built for gaming and won’t disappoint. it uses the hero 25k sensor which can reach 25.000 DPI (DPI simply means how many points per second the mouse cursor moves. The higher the number, the higher the sensitivity), and its light speed technology reduces latency.
Design and construction
If you’re familiar with previous G502 models, the Logitech G502 X Lightspeed should look pretty familiar to you. Like the latest versions, the G502 X Lightspeed is an ergonomic right-handed mouse with a curved profile, thumb rest, textured grip, and a slight indentation in the palm rest. It’s a little smaller, lighter and lower than its predecessors, and also a little less angular. Otherwise, however, the G502 X Lightspeed doesn’t reinvent the wheel.
In terms of buttons, the device is generous without feeling overdone. The front panel has a left button, a right button, a scroll wheel that clicks in three ways, and two dots per inch (DPI) sensitivity adjustment buttons on the left. Below the scroll wheel is a programmable button that changes profiles and a non-programmable button that changes the voltage on the scroll wheel. Free scroll mode is incredibly useful if you’re doing productive work that requires you to quickly scroll through documents.
There are two thumb buttons on the side and a «sniper» button that can temporarily lower DPI for leveling headshots and the like. The sniper button has received a huge improvement over the last time. You can now change the default button design to a spade button below the thumb buttons.
For competitive players with small hands, this is a boon. Replacing the button is easy as it attaches and detaches with magnets. These magnets also hold it in place when you want the button to stay in place. While slightly lighter than the G502 Lightspeed, the G502 X Lightspeed is still comfortable to hold and has just the right amount of weight to help it go where it needs to go.
The Logitech G502 X is a great FPS mouse. It has a solid build quality and fits comfortably in the hand. It’s also decently light and has great feet that provide a very smooth glide across mousepads and tables. In terms of performance, its click lag is surprisingly low, which ensures a responsive gaming experience. Unfortunately, the mouse is too bulky for small hands to comfortably use.
The Logitech G502 X Lightspeed comes with intuitive Logitech G Hub software that lets you reprogram buttons, create profiles for specific games and apps, adjust DPI levels, and monitor battery life. On the G502 X Plus, you can also customize the RGB lighting, which offers a variety of patterns and colors. The software isn’t flashy, but it works well enough.
Also worth noting is that the mouse offers five built-in profiles plus a theoretically infinite number of software profiles. This can be useful for tournament players or players who use the mouse on multiple computers. Switching between built-in and software profiles is easy, as is customizing both.
The G502 X Lightspeed Key also offers a neat trick, as you can connect a Logitech G mouse and keyboard, such as the Logitech G915, to it at the same time. More interesting is the battery life, which Logitech estimates at 140 hours on the Lightspeed and 130 hours on the Plus. Assuming you use the mouse for about eight hours a day, you get about 17 days of use with the lights off and maybe 10 days with the lights on.
