Great all-round mouse with 1.5 month battery life

I have this mouse. I love it. I write this after switching to the G602 from a wired G500. I was worried about the weight, responsiveness and constant battery charging, but Logitech nailed all three.

If you’re looking for specs, read the product description and marketing material. This review is purely my experience as an enthusiast user.


  • Overview

Pros:

  • World-class battery life (I’ve tested 160 hours on a single battery)
  • Wireless works!
  • Good build quality
  • Textured grip on both sides
  • Weight: If you run one battery, lighter than G700s, comparable to Naga Epic / Mamba
  • Six thumb buttons, just enough to feel pampered
  • No accidental thumb button presses

Cons:

  • Top three thumb buttons are high, slightly reduces control

What I miss from my G500:

  • Free-scroll / hyper-scroll
  • Lighter weight

  • Build

Fine build quality. Textured grip as on other Logitech mice, with a rather short thumb rest. Mouse moves around smoothly on its pads.

Mousewheel is tactile but quiet. I still sometimes run into issues where the trigger-point for the mousewheel click gets off-center, but it eventually jiggers itself back into place. I encounter this with plenty of other mice as well, so this is not an explicit negative. Just like how omitting my beloved free-scroll is not a full negative either.

Wireless works fine, though you may need a line of sight to the receiver. It includes a USB extender.


  • Buttons

Love the thumb buttons. They’re right above where your thumb rests (easy access, no accidental tripping with a tight grip). The top three buttons are a higher than you’d expect, but I got used to it. The thumb buttons have rather pointy edges that dig in to your fingers and need a reasonable amount of force to press. This actually increases the control you have with your thumb on the buttons.

I like that because I can distinctly feel the buttons and there is no chance of accidental clicking, but it may be uncomfortable for some people or difficult to access/trigger while whipping the mouse around.

Very useful having two sets of three buttons. Mine are set up like this:

Back - Middle Click (open in a new tab) - Forward

Previous Tab - Close Tab (Ctrl-W) - Next tab

As much as I like using Vimium for no-mouse browsing, this allows super-fluid one-handed browsing. I need not explain why this is a benefit. You’ll understand when you grow up.


  • Battery

Battery life is phenomenal. It lets you run with only one AA battery for reduced weight, which is my preference coming from a wired G500. I got used to the weight, but still run one battery because…

My experience with G602, one plain battery, performance mode, lasted 45 days. (It gives you a 5% warning on your computer, and lasted 3 days past that.) Estimating a conservative 25 hours a week, that’s over 160 hours of use off a single battery.

For comparison:

  • Razer Naga Epic: 12h
  • Razer Mamba: 16h
  • Logitech G700s: 10h
  • Logitech G602, one battery, Performance mode: over 160h

You can get much better numbers by inserting two batteries, using a high-capacity Eneloop and switching to endurance mode, but I am perfectly okay switching out a single battery every 1.5 months. When the low battery alert surprises you that your mouse even has a battery that needs swapping, charge time is a non-issue.

A+, would buy again.

Awesome wireless gaming mouse. Maybe the best yet.

I love this mouse. I've had more or less every iteration of Logitech's gaming mice...the G7, the G700, and then the G700s briefly. The G602 is slightly flatter, which I appreciate. The strong curve of the 700 makes it harder to use the mouse "claw" style"...you more or less have to palm grip it. Since the 602 is flatter it gives you more of an option in terms of how to hold it...which also makes it better for marathon sessions since you can change your hand position to avoid getting tired.

I was a little concerned that there would be button overload along the left side…since this mouse basically does away with anyy buttons on the top or right side (there are buttons on the top but they’re all related to DPI changes by default). However, in practice I’ve found that I even prefer this setup. What it comes down to mostly is I need my index finger nearly 100% of the time for the left click, so having alternate buttons for my index finger make it difficult to continue using the left click at the same time. Obviously my thumb has no issues with that. It is easy to distinguish the 6 buttons from one another as well.

The thing that really takes the cake about this mouse is the battery life. Despite being able to charge the g700 of the fly, and use it at the same time, I found that I would often just leave it plugged in because I kept running out of battery at the most inopportune moments (of course). And it happened rather frequently…I’d run out of juice every other day or so. I don’t like having to remember to plug it in at the end of a session. Having 250 hours out of a battery (which can also be rechargeable anyway), is WAY better than the 12 hours from the g700.

My last concern was that the lack of DPI (the g700s as slightly better DPI at max settings), but in use, I found I couldnt really tell much of a difference.

Since the G602 is typically cheaper…I’d say it’s a hands down better mouse.
