How good is the battery?

The battery in the Logitech G502 Lightspeed is superb, offering players anywhere between 48 and 60 hours of play time before they need to plug the mouse in to recharge.

Your specific battery life time is dependent on how much you use the RGB light of the Logitech logo that's on the top of the mouse, which drains power. Even if you always use it, 48 hours of play for a gaming mouse is awesome, and the ability to use it for up to 60 if you don't is incredible.

It's worth noting that the mouse is also compatible with Logitech's PowerPlay mat accessory, which can recharge it wirelessly as you play, allowing you to essentially have infinite battery life.
