Logitech Partners with iFixit for Self-Repairs

Hanging on to your favorite wireless mouse just got a little easier thanks to a new partnership between Logitech and DIY repair specialists iFixit. The two companies are working together to reduce unnecessary e-waste and help customers repair their own out-of-warranty Logitech hardware by supplying spare parts, batteries, and repair guides for “select products.”

Everything will eventually be housed in the iFixit Logitech Repair Hub, with parts available to purchase as needed or within “Fix Kits” that provide everything needed to complete the repair, such as tools and precision bit sets.

Starting “this summer,” Logitech’s MX Master and MX Anywhere mouse models will be the first products to receive spare parts. Pricing information has not been disclosed yet, and Logitech hasn’t mentioned any other devices that will receive the iFixit genuine replacement parts and repair guide treatment.

At the moment, many Logitech products are already listed within the iFixit repair hub, including webcams, keyboards, headphones, Bluetooth speakers, and gaming peripherals. Some are just placeholders, but others already feature guides on how to repair the product, such as the battery replacement guide for the Logitech H800 Wireless. That particular guide was created by an iFixit community member and predates the partnership between iFixit and Logitech, which will hopefully expand to cover more devices soon.
