The touchpad on the latest generation of laptops is indeed larger in size so it is comfortable to use. But to do certain tasks, such as editing photos or videos, processing data in office applications , to gaming , the existence of a mouse is still very much needed.
The good news is, if you are a mouse user from Logitech, in the future maybe you can fix the mouse yourself when there is a problem. Recently, Logitech announced its partnership with iFixit’s DIY repair specials. They strive to reduce unnecessary e-waste.
The partnership also aims to help users repair their unwarranted Logitech hardware themselves by providing parts, batteries, and repair guides for select products. The guide can be accessed at the iFixit Logitech Repair Hub.
The Logitech MX Master and MX Anywhere wireless mice were the first products to receive parts, and are among Logitech’s most popular mice . Apart from mice, many Logitech products have already been registered with the iFixit repair center, including webcams, keyboards, Bluetooth speakers , and game peripherals made by members of the iFixit community.
Of course, through this official partnership it is expected that the supported Logitech products will soon be expanded. According to a report cited by Logitech, global e-waste is projected to grow to more than 75 million metric tons by 2030, exacerbated by high consumption rates and gadgets with limited repair options.
Logitech says they’re trying to address this by encouraging their customers to repair and maintain their Logitech devices, so they don’t end up in landfill. ” Consumers often struggle to find ways to improve and extend the life of their products,” said Prakash Arunkundrum, chief operating officer at Logitech.
In addition to Logitech, iFixit has also worked with technology brands such as Google, Samsung and Valve to create similar self-repair programs.
