It almost borders on a miracle – at least for lefties, because with the Logitech Lift Vertical Ergonomic Mouse, the well-known peripheral manufacturer has introduced a new vertical mouse that is finally also aimed at lefties. It relies on a naturally shaped design and is suitable for small to medium-sized hands.
Logitech Lift: In three colors and also as a left-handed version
Left-handed users have been left out in the cold when it comes to vertical mice. This is finally changing thanks to the Logitech Lift, which the peripheral manufacturer introduced today. The Verticle Ergonomic Mouse will be offered in pink, off-white and graphite, with the latter color variant also being available in a left-handed version.
“Building on our philosophy that we all work better when we feel better, we developed Lift. With it, we help people work comfortably for hours and feel better at the end of a long day at their desk,” reveals Olessia Hageman, head of Logitech’s ergo business unit.
By the time it was ready, the newest member of Logitech’s Ergo series would have had to master numerous tests and was tested by leading ergonomic institutes. Compared to the previous MX Vertical from Logitech, the lift, however, turns out smaller.
Vertical 57-degree design
As such, the Logitech Lift Vertical Ergonomic Mouse is aimed at small to medium-sized hands and is said to provide excellent comfort at the desk due to its compact design, soft rubber grip and comfortable thumb rest.
The 57-degree vertical design provides a relaxed grip for both right- and left-handed users and relieves wrist strain while promoting a more natural forearm posture throughout the day. In addition, the Lift features a silent, magnetic SmartWheel that is said to excel in speed and precision in equal measure.
The mouse connects either via Bluetooth Low Energy or with the help of the Logi Bolt USB receiver. According to the manufacturer, the included AA battery should last for 24 months. The Verticle Mouse can be connected wirelessly with Windows, macOS, Linux, Chrome OS, iPadOS and Android. With Logitech Flow, users can work simultaneously on up to three devices with different operating systems.
6 buttons, up to 4,000 DPI
Other than that, the specs of the Logitech Lift Vertical Ergonomic Mouse also read appealing. It measures 108 mm x 71 mm x 70 mm (depth x height x width) and weighs 125 grams. The Logitech Advanced Optical Tracking Sensor is used, which can be adjusted between 400 DPI and 4000 DPI in steps of 100.
A total of six buttons are available (left and right click, back and forward, center button, clickable scroll wheel). In addition, the lift is largely made of recycled plastic, depending on the color, it is up to 70 percent.
Price and Availability
The Logitech Lift Vertical Ergonomic Mouse is available now from Logitech’s online store and from retailers. The manufacturer’s RRP is 79.99 euros, regardless of colors and left- or right-handed version.
