ASUS ROG Spatha: Closer Look Continued

Once the bottom screws are removed, the top cover can be pried off with light force. Removing the plastic shroud for the ring finger rest can allow for some more work space.

The internal layout consists of a few black PCB’s, a large battery, a few ribbon cables, the scroll wheel, and the replaceable OMRON switches. Towards the left side of the mouse is the compartment that houses the six-tactile side buttons with the RGB LED. A ribbon cable connects this to the lower PCB where the battery sits.

Here we have a closer look at the exclusive easy-swap switchable socket. Two OMRON D2FC-F-7N switches are included for the left and the right click buttons. Removing the original switches may require some force, but it can be done. You can pull out the pre-installed switches from the socket and insert the provided D2F-01F switches into the socket in the same orientation.

Next to the left click switch are two smaller switches. These are the two backward and forward switches for the two buttons on the left click button. They are smaller than the replaceable left and right click switches and cannot be replaced.

The battery in the ROG Spatha has a capacity of 1000mAh rated at 3.7 volts (3.7V). It looks similar to a battery in something like a remote control drone. This means the battery can be replaced once it has reached the end of its life.

A PCB with an RGB LED mounted on it is placed inside the scroll wheel to illuminate it.

There are three lighting zones for the ROG Spatha. Here we can see all three zones, including the RGB LED at the rear of the mouse. This LED illuminates the rear logo.
