So i stumbled upon the new G700, which seems pretty awesome, but after a review from engadget i found out that theres a battery inside, instead of something square like the G7 i find an AA battery from eneloop (sanyo), is this standard OR can we just use our own battery or the actual mice battery OR does the cable recharge that AA battery ?
I don't get it.

The G700 takes any standard AA battery you would find in your local store. The Sanyo Eneloop rechargeable AA batteries are the best rechargeables on hte market. They hold their charge when not in use (like standard non-rechargeables); as opposed to other types of rechargeable batteries, which degrade over time. The cable is used to both charge your rechargeable AAs and deliver the mouse's signal like a standard wired mouse (as G5/G500 works).
I wouldn't suggest plugging in the cable with non-rechargeables in your G700. It could fry those types of batteries and damage our mouse.

Cool tidbit: the charging cable that the G930 comes with will plug into the G700 as well. You'll still have to use the receiver, but it A) makes for a nice backup and B) since it's power only, it's thinner and more flexible than the G700's standard cable.

I know this is an old post, but for anyone else wondering. As long as the AC adapter is supplying 5 volts it should be OK to recharge your G700 batteries with.
You'd obviously still need to plug the wireless reciever in to communicate with a computer.
