Manufacturer SPC Gear disconnects the cables of its ultra-light gaming mice Lix and Lix Plus. The SPC Gear LIX Wireless and LIX Plus Wireless use the fast 2.4 GHz standard for a stable connection with almost no latency. They also promise long battery life and addressable RGB lighting.
SPC Gear LIX Wireless and LIX Plus Wireless in detail
The Lix mice are almost legends in the portfolio of SPC Gear, now there is the normal model, as well as the Plus variant also wireless. Both gaming mice transmit in the 2.4 GHz band and connect via USB receiver. Practical: thanks to the magnetic compartment on the bottom of the mouse, the receiver can be stored safely and in a space-saving manner.
Both mice weigh just 69 grams and measure 126 mm x 65.7 mm x 38.5 mm. They are charged using the included 1.8-meter paracord cable (USB-C to USB-C).
The manufacturer also promises a long battery life. However, without giving any numbers. When the charge level drops below 25 percent, the scroll wheel flashes red, indicating that the mouse should be charged soon. However, the mice can still be used without problems when charging. SPC Gear also doesn’t give any information about the charging time, but it is always supposed to turn out pretty fast.
Difference between LIX and LIX Plus
The SPC Gear LIX Wireless and LIX Plus Wireless differ mainly in terms of their main mechanical buttons and in the sensor. Both switches come from Kailh and are designed for 60 million clicks on the LIX and 80 million clicks on the LIX Plus.
The LIX also uses the PixArt PAW3335 sensor, which has a maximum sensitivity of 16,000 DPI. The LIX PLUS, on the other hand, uses the PixArt PAW3370 with a DPI setting of up to 19,000 DPI. However, these first have to be set in the software of both mice; the five saved DPI levels are limited to a maximum of 3,000 DPI ex-works.
Otherwise, there are no other differences. Both gaming mice rely on an open housing with a honeycomb pattern on the underside of the body, each offer six programmable buttons and a polling rate of 1,000 Hz. At the same time, they offer a 10.16 m/s response speed and also let you change the LOD (Lift-Off Distance) between 1 mm and 2 mm.
The Lix Wireless series features advanced addressable RGB backlighting for the scroll wheel, SPC Gear logo and bottom strip. Customization of the effects is also possible via the companion software, of course.
