Cookies n' Cream. 68g Wireless Fk2 w/ GPW hyperglides.

https://imgur.com/a/MbgX3Hk

This is my custom Zowie FK2 I just finished, I call it Cookies n' Cream. The goal for this project was to create the lowest weight wireless Zowie FK2 that I could, aiming for sub 70g. I chose to not include the ability to recharge the mouse in favor of weight reduction. The battery should last about 150 hours if gaming and 190 if browsing. The battery is held in place with double sided 3M tape and is easy to switch out. I printed multiple bottoms giving me the ability to change out mouse skates whenever I would like. I drilled out the endoskeleton for a reduction of -4g. This project would've never been possible without the help of /u/Adrenalinez, I saw his guide and .stl and knew it was something that I wanted to try. If you are interested in this type of mod I highly recommend that you read his [incredibly in-depth guide](https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3293580) that comes with his .stl. Even though it is for the fk2 and ec-2a the methods he uses can be applied to any mouse to make any mouse wireless and hero sensor.
**Specs:**

* Zowie FK2 + Logitech G305 PCB

* Marble PLA Bottomplate (13g)

* Skates: GPW Hyperglides

* Main buttons: Omron D2LS-21

* Side buttons: Stock Zowie Huano

* Zinc-Air P675 hearing aid battery (150~ hours of play, weight: 1g)

100% AGREE.

Truly miraculous because people such as yourself aren't too common in the real world.

Too undertake and accomplish something such as this is much more than upgrading the cable or swapping switches, it's on another level of expertise.

Why doesn't Zowie hire you to design and develop their mouse range?

you have to open it up every time you want to change the battery, right?
hmm. how much heavier would it be to add a little hole and a battery compartment thingy? or difficult. or even possible...

also, any small rechargeable battery options and what do those weigh?
