Logitech introduces the G305, a new wireless gaming mouse with LIGHTSPEED wireless technology and the HERO optical sensor. The firm says this model has 10 times higher power efficiency than its predecessor, this results in Performance Mode battery life of up to 250 hours on just one AA battery. If you switch to Endurance Mode, which downgrades the report rate from 1ms to 8ms, the battery life can hit a whopping nine months on a single battery. Logitech's G305 LIGHTSPEED should be available in stores this month for $59.99. It's offered in black and white editions.
