Logitech LX7 Cordless Optical Mouse Delivers Improved
Battery Life Issues with Indicator Light, On/Off Switch,
Power-Saving Mode; Features Plug-and-Play Mini-Receiver,
Invisible Optical Tracking
FREMONT, Calif. Sept. 6, 2005 Logitech
(SWX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI), the world´s leading
manufacturer of computer mice, today announced the
Logitech® LX7 Cordless Optical Mouse, a mouse that
improves the cordless experience with power-saving
features that support battery life of up to eight months
and a clutter-reducing wireless mini-receiver that is
plug and play.
Long battery life and the ability to manage power
consumption are important qualities for cordless mice. In
fact, a recent survey of 1,200 Logitech mouse owners
showed that 76 percent were highly interested in having a
battery indicator light on the mouse. The Logitech LX7
Cordless Optical Mouse features Logitech´s new smart
power management system, which includes an indicator
light that glows green when the mouse is turned on and
the battery life is good. The light blinks red when
1-2 weeks of battery life remain. The second component of
the smart power management system is an on/off button on
the base of the mouse, which can help further extend
battery life. The mouse also uses invisible optical
tracking technology that conserves power while tracking
better than previous optical mice with a red
light-emitting diode (LED). And, it automatically goes
into a power-saving standby mode within one second of
Logitech´s Smart Power Management features are an
essential component in how we´ve made the cordless
experience even easier and better than before, said
Ashish Arora, Logitech vice president of product
marketing for retail pointing devices. The LX7
mouse provides a battery life of up to eight months
but battery life can be extended much farther,
depending upon how people use it, thanks to the reminders
provided by the indicator light, the on/off switch and
the power-saving standby mode.
The Logitech LX7 Cordless Optical Mouse uses Logitech´s
proprietary 27 MHz technology and a plug-and-play
mini-receiver. The mouse and receiver are paired during
manufacturing so that when they are plugged in, they work
immediately making it easy to use with either a
notebook or desktop computer. No setup or connection
process is necessary. Also, the LX7 doesn´t have a bulky
receiver, which was previously common with cordless mice,
further decreasing desktop clutter.
Designed to fit comfortably in the right or left hand,
the ambidextrous Logitech LX7 Cordless Optical Mouse is
sculpted on both sides of the mouse, giving it an
hourglass shape. The mouse features a soft-touch,
rubberized grip, helping maximize comfort. Also, the
product comes in three different stylish color
combinations: glossy metallic blue/piano black, quartz
gray/piano black, or ice blue/steel gray.
The mouse uses two AA batteries, but can operate on only
one for those who prefer the mouse to be more
lightweight. The mouse includes Logitech´s Tilt Wheel
Plus Zoom scroll wheel, which allows people to
effortlessly scroll left, right, up and down, and zoom in
and out of digital photos, Web pages and open documents.
It also features integrated forward and back buttons.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech LX7 Cordless Optical Mouse will be available
in the U.S. beginning in September for a suggested retail
price of $39.99. It will be available in Europe beginning
in late September.
