I love my Revolution MX but the interval between recharges has been getting shorter and shorter lately. The support page does not list a replacement battery as a part that can be purchased. Please tell me this mouse will not be garbage when the life cycle of the internal battery is complete?
If the unit must be sent in, how much does it cost? Also, if this is true, has anyone managed to find a do-it-yourself method similar to what people have done with the i-pod (maybe I'll end up being the first)?

Second, if you really want to open it up and replace the battery (which voids the warranty), it uses the same battery pack as the G7 mouse. These batteries are available on the web site I think.

Maybe. I'm not sure if that error is with the battery, or with the charging dock. There is a mod around that adds a resistor to the charging dock (or even just put it on a really long extension cord) to lower the charging voltage a bit, which some claim solves the problem.

but you might ruin the mouse feet getting at the screws. There are 4 screws: 2 under the long foot at the front of the mouse, and 1 each under the back feet (either side of the charging pads). You can either peel and re-stick them, or buy replacements from http://www.slicksurf.com/

I haven't contacted Logitech yet, I noticed on their spare parts site it states that some spare parts are not available online. If they do indeed replace my battery free of charge, that will be great. If it takes any more than a week, that will be not-so-great. Maybe now would be the time to buy a mouse for use at work and keep it at home while this one is being repaired.
Battery life is definitely getting shorter- less than a week on a full charge now days.

How is LOGITECH handling the battery replacement issue??? Are they giving the customer a NEW or a REFURBISHED mouse??? or are they REPLACING the battery with a new one????
