The new Logitech G502 X mouse continues the legacy of delivering unparalleled gaming performance. It is now being meticulously redesigned to meet the demands of players and fans.
We have, more specifically, a familiar format in the G502, but updating it with the most advanced gaming technologies. By the way, here including the introduction of LIGHTFORCE hybrid optical-mechanical switches.
An icon reinvented with the new Logitech G502 X
“The G502 is an icon in gaming and we know the community is looking for the next generation offering,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and manager of Logitech Gaming.
“We’ve reimagined the iconic G502 with design and engineering updates that lift the legendary gaming mouse into a new era of gaming. With lighter materials and cutting-edge technology, the new G502 X promises to continue the tradition of the G502 in its maximum performance and total control”, points out Desai.
First and foremost, a Logitech G exclusive. All G502 X models come with new LIGHTFORCE hybrid optical-mechanical switches for remarkable speed and reliability, as well as precise actuation with crisp response.
More specifically, LIGHTFORCE is a microswitch technology that combines the benefits of optical switches with the important actuation sensation of mechanical switches.
In short, the former offer fast speed, performance and good reliability over the life of the mouse.

Second, LIGHTFORCE uses galvanic contact parts inside the switch, which work like mechanical switches, to maintain a crisp feel.
The result is optical and mechanical triggers designed in unison for better gaming performance. LIGHTFORCE hybrid switches enable reliable optical actuation and ultra-low latency, coupled with the best attributes of crisp, tactile mechanical clicks.
The G502 X features a redesigned, reversible and removable DPI-shift knob to accommodate a wide variety of hand sizes and grip styles.
In addition, we have a redesigned scroll wheel with greater stability and reduced weight. This while maintaining the G502’s iconic dual fast infinite scrolling.
At the same time, we have precision ratcheting modes, USB-C charging for the wireless versions, as well as a thin-walled exoskeleton for weight reduction and maximum rigidity.
The Logitech G502 X mouse is also equipped with the high-precision HERO 25K gaming sensor. Here providing 1-1 ratio accuracy at sub-micron levels and smoothing, filtering or accelerating.
Logitech G points to 68% improvement in response times
In addition to wireless activity and performance, and when paired with LIGHTFORCE, it features 68% faster response times than the previous generation.
The wireless LIGHTSPEED protocol upgrade also allows gamers to connect two LIGHTSPEED devices to one receiver using the Device Pairing Tool on the G HUB.
That way, gamers can choose to use the G502 X with the same receiver as their Logitech G915, G915 TKL or G715 gaming keyboard.
In addition, the G502 X range is compatible with Logitech G POWERPLAY wireless charging mats, for unlimited wireless battery life.
The G502 X PLUS model comes with LIGHTSYNC RGB, featuring the following features: fluid 8-LED lighting that is customizable and adapts as the user plays.
Likewise, we also have on and off effects, and battery optimization through active playback detection. Finally, three mice are available in black and white.
