Don’t be surprised if you really have a hard time finding the right replacement for your PTFE gaming mouse pads. These pads are usually not offered by the manufacturers because they find it hard enough to find a replacement for them. But the reality is that with hours and hours of playing marathons they do wear out eventually, especially when you consider that you can put a lot of pressure on them or expose them to surfaces. more or less aggressive.
Where to buy replacement gaming mouse pads?
As we are well aware, every mouse has a different shape of pads and they usually don’t share them with other models. Therefore, there is usually one type of mat per mouse that is unique and non-transferable, so finding it can be a complicated task for different brands.
Perhaps the most obvious question would be: why change the pads? Basically, in order not to lose performance, because acceleration and braking, as well as the distance between the sensor and the surface worsens or decreases, so we not only lose the distance and time ratio, but the accuracy can also be lost.
Buy the mouse pads in the brand’s online store?
This is usually the first step for every neighbor’s child, trying to find the part on the brand’s website. But unfortunately, it’s rare to find a company that offers these very specific products, especially if the mouse is 3 years old or older.
And if that happens, either the model is widely known and the brand keeps it up to date, or we won’t have the opportunity to purchase them.
This is usually the best known portal and where it is possible to find any PTFE tampon without too many problems. It is true that in lesser known mice, these do not work like that, but normally we will have no problem finding our model once it has made good sales.
In our country, you must specify keywords such as PTFE, replacements, cursor or the like for the replacement to appear in the search. Normally they are offered by external sellers, usually outside our country, so you will have to mix English and Spanish to find them. Other words that work well are: feet or mouse feet, skates or skates …
This is where we will find by far the greatest number of units and variety. In fact, it will be hard not to find the one that matches our specific model. We can use as a guide the same words that we put for Amazon for example.
The only problem is that, as usual, the replacement may take a while to arrive, but that’s the price you pay to find it.
If for some reason we can’t find them officially, we can always buy a piece of PTFE and cut it to our liking following the pattern of the original tampon. It will suffice to ensure that the thickness is the closest to that when it was purchased, so it would be necessary to add between 1 mm and 3 mm approximately and according to the wear that it has undergone.
