Glorious mice come with blue protective film on the G-Skates mouse feet in order to protect them. Ensure you remove these coverings before use.

Plug & Play

We recommend fully charging your Model I 2 Wireless before using it for the first time in wireless mode. The mouse can be used normally in wired mode. Total charge time from zero to full battery is approximately 2 hours.

Plug the USB-A end of the Ascended cord into your PC and the USB-C end into the USB-C port located on the front of the mouse, hex symbol up. The mouse will automatically install all necessary drivers.

Wireless USB Receiver

Once the mouse is fully charged, toggle the switch on the bottom of the mouse to "2.4" and plug the USB Receiver into any available USB port on your PC. It is paired with the mouse out of the box and should be kept at close range for optimal performance.

Wireless Bluetooth

Once the mouse is fully charged, toggle the switch at the bottom of the mouse to “BT.” Press and hold the DPI+, Home, and Forward buttons until the LEDs flash blue to indicate that the mouse is discoverable. The mouse will show as “Model I 2” on your PC. Follow the instructions on your PC to successfully pair the mouse via Bluetooth. Once successfully paired, the mouse will discontinue flashing blue and revert to its previous lighting effect.

Bluetooth connectivity requires a PC with built-in Bluetooth or an external Bluetooth adapter (purchased elsewhere).

• Windows 7+, MacOS, Linux

Side Buttons

DPI Focus Button

The DPI Focus button is the larger side button near where your thumb rests on the mouse, below the other three side buttons. Pressing and holding this button will temporarily change the DPI of your mouse. The default DPI Focus is 400 DPI.

This setting can be changed in Glorious CORE under the "Key Binding" tab. This function can also be bound to any other mouse button as desired by using CORE.

Swappable Magnetic Buttons

The Model I has four total buttons on the left side. Two of these buttons are magnetic and removable, allowing you to change their shape to compliment your play style.

The first removable button is the DPI Focus button, located near where your thumb rests below the other three side buttons.

The second removable button is located at the rear of the group of three side buttons.

Removing a Side Button
1. There is a small groove at the front of the button. Place the included tool or your fingernail into this opening.

2. Lightly lift your finger and the button away from the side of the Model I. Since the buttons are magnetic, you will feel a small amount of resistance as you do this.

3. The magnetic button should begin to slowly pull away from the mouse and lift from the slot. Do this slowly and carefully to ensure that the button does not fly out of your hand and get lost.

Installing a Side Button

1. Select your preferred mouse button shape from the three provided options.

2. Looking at the button interior, you will notice two posts that help it attach to its respective magnetic slot. The first post is flat & horizontal. The second is circular with a hole in the middle. Line up these posts with the matching holes in the empty button slot.

3. Insert the round post into the rear of the slot before inserting the front, horizontal post.

4. Once aligned, the magnets should pick up the replaceable button and snap it securely into place.

When the Model I 2 Wireless is low on power, the LEDs will shut off, except for one LED in the left strip, which will blink red to indicate that the mouse should be plugged in to charge.

The battery level can be checked in wireless mode by pressing and holding the DPI+ button. The RGB strips will blink in the color corresponding to the battery level. This can be disabled by pressing and holding the DPI button again. Battery level can also be found in the Glorious CORE software.

Note that the battery life of the mouse is negatively impacted by the brightness of the lighting. The brightness can be adjusted via the button combination described above in Lighting Effects or through Glorious CORE.
