Logitech PowerPlay Review (Test 2018)

There is nothing more frustrating than sitting in a Fortnite Battle Royale game with 5 players left and then your mouse runs out of battery. Does this sound familiar? Then this product is for you!

The newest gaming accessory from Logitech is the PowerPlay. A Mouse Pad priced at $99.99 that will charge your wireless mouse when you use it. Crazy or brilliant? This review will tell you.

PowerPlay compatible mouses – this is how it works

The Logitech G PowerPlay looks like a normal mouse pad – just a few millimeters thicker. This is not something you are aware of when you use it. PowerPlay will charge your wireless G903 or G703 mouse when its on the mouse pad. I tested putting my iPhone X on the PowerPlay, but it did not work.

When you receive your PowerPlay there will be a wireless receiver that will fit in your G903 and G703 mouse. It’s the exact same size as the mouse weights (weights you can add and remove to make your mouse heavier/lighter). When you insert the receiver, your mouse will become compatible with the PowerPlay.

The PowerPlay will also come with a changeable surface to make the mousepad harder or softer. It’s a very nice detail from Logitech.

Logitech G PowerPlay Driver

If you already have a Logitech product you probably already installed Logitech Gaming Software. If not, you can download it here. Logitech Gaming Software is a universal Driver & Software for all Logitech Products. Inhere you can change settings, update firmware and contact Logitech Support directly.

PowerPlay is charging slowly – what to do?

PowerPlay is charging your mouse wireless and will never reach the same speed as with USB. I recommend plugging your mouse in USB 3.0 to get maximum charging speed.

If you still have troubles, try the following:

  • Unplug PowerPlay, uninstall Logitech Gaming Software
  • Plug in PowerPlay in your USB 3.0 and let windows find the driver
  • Download Logitech Gaming Software

If the following failed to work, please check these solutions:

  • PowerPlay works best with USB 3.0
    • Check your ports in your cabinet. Are they USB 3.0?
  • Make sure everything is plugged in correctly in your motherboard
  • Does your PC get enough power? We recommend a PSU (power) above 500W.

PowerPlay launched in April 2018. You can see more and buy it directly on Logitech.com
