Mice and ergonomics are usually a very personal thing, but a problem can be the size of the mouse itself, as most mice are usually quite similar in size, if it is not about travel mice. Logitech’s latest model – which goes by the name Lift – takes those who want a slightly smaller, ergonomic mouse in mind. The design itself is similar to MX Vertical and is held vertically. The same 57 degree angle where the hand rests is followed from MX Vertical and both mice have six buttons, but that’s where the similarities end.
To begin with, Lift does not come with a rechargeable battery, but uses a regular alkaline LR6 battery. A rechargeable option works, but can not be loaded directly into the mouse. According to Logitech, an alkaline battery should last for up to two years of use. The wireless connection to a computer takes place either via Bluetooth, where Lift supports the latest Bluetooth Low Energystandards, eller via and Logitech Bolt USB dongle.
Bolt is Logitech’s name for their latest wireless protocol that uses an encrypted signal, and is said to be more resistant to signal interference. The wireless range should be up to ten meters and the Lift can remember up to three separate devices, which can be switched between with a button on the underside of the mouse. Lift will work with Windows, Mac OS, Linux, Chrome OS, Ipad OS and Android.
Lift has a new variant of Logitech’s scroll wheel with gear, which Logitech calls Smartwheel in this case. It is also possible to navigate horizontally with the scroll wheel, which is not possible with all mice. The sensor is optical and has a DPI range of 400 to 4,000 DPI, where the two preset values are 1,000 and 1,600 DPI.
Something more unique is that Lift comes in designs for both right- and left-handed people, where the model for right-handed people comes in pink, off-white or graphite, while for left-handed people it only comes in graphite. Logitech says that Lift is made from 70 percent consumer use, recycled plastic for the graphite models and 54 percent for the pink and off-white models.
Lift is made for slightly smaller hands and Logitech has a measurement scale based on credit cards. The mouse has a height of 71 millimeters, because it is held vertically, a width of 70 millimeters and a depth of 108 millimeters, and weighs 125 grams. In Sweden, Lift comes with a 2-year warranty and has a price tag of SEK 799 for both right- and left-handed models.
Do you use an extra ergonomic pointing device or do you stick to more traditionally designed mice?
