Logitech and iFixit announced the launch of a collaboration to reduce e-waste and encourage customers to self-repair Logitech devices that fail after the warranty period has expired. The initiative provides spare parts, batteries and step-by-step repair instructions for selected Logitech products.
Program components will be centralized in the iFixit Logitech Repair Hub where users can purchase parts separately or choose comprehensive Fix Kits. These kits contain all the necessary parts and tools to perform the repair.
Implementation of this initiative will begin this summer with Logitech’s MX Master and MX Anywhere mouse models, which will be the first to be included in this program. On the iFixit website, you can buy the necessary tools and spare parts for them. For example, the cost of the original battery for the Logitech MX Master 3 is set at $14.99 with the Fix Kit, and $24.99 as a separate part.
The iFixit Logitech Repair Hub now features a wide variety of Logitech products, including keyboards, webcams, headphones, gaming peripherals, and Bluetooth speakers. Some of them are still waiting for manuals, others already have a detailed description for repair. One such manual was provided by a member of the iFixit community for replacing the battery in the Logitech H800 Wireless. One can only hope that active community participation will quickly expand the number of Logitech devices that can be repaired by users.
Logitech noted that by 2030, global e-waste will exceed 75 million tons due to high consumption and limited repairability of gadgets. In an effort to counter this, Logitech encourages its customers to maintain and repair their devices themselves, reducing the need to end up in landfills.
