Question about Logitech MX1000 Laser Cordless (097855023933) Mouse
Batteries are critical on led. Docking station will only charge a few seconds and stays stuck with three green led's on. How can I change the batteries?
How can you open up mouse to replace the batteries?
The following is what I ended up doing
Pretty much I cannibalized a pack of battery charging adapter plates, soldered the three wires to them, trimmed & bent them a little.. and then epoxied them down to the battery hold-down in their appropriate places. A little trimming was done on the plastic so the contacts could reach in far enough without obstruction.
After having the mouse sit around useless without a working battery in it.. for months, which definitely irritated me... I looked up 3.7V li-ion batteries and came across the "klic-5001 battery" (google it) and ordered two. The first one I destroyed trying to solder the wires directly to the battery contacts.. which just ruined all the internal li-ion battery components(i.e. DO NOT TRY DOING THAT)... the second battery, which I never tampered with whatsoever, is connected to the mouse via the contacts I described above. The klic-5001 batteries by the way do fit very well in the hold-down meant for the original battery.
End result: one, exceptionally well working MX1000 mouse which I can replace the rechargeable battery inside anytime it begins to get to aged and not working so well... ^_^ It charges as normal and the battery monitoring works like nothing ever changed.

My old Nokia cell phone battery is 3.7V, three pin connector... with JB weld to hold it together might just work...

For those with an MX1000---search on eBay for a Kodak FLIC-5001 battery. I paid $3.99 for mine. It is a 3.7V 1800mAH battery which is a bit more powerful than the stock battery that was supplied with the MX1000. This battery works very well but you would need to solder the three wires to it (from the old battery). This is not difficult for someone who owns a soldering iron. I have this Kodak battery installed in my MX1000 and it works perfectly.

A compilation of the above worked for me... esp. http://www.vk2k.com/Logitech-MX1000-Battery/ Got the Kodak Klik battery for 6 bucks on eBay. Soldering instructions at http://www.aaroncake.net/electronics/solder.htm Soldering the wires to the battery was easier than retrofitting other leads as it involved much less finagling of parts and, so long as heat to the terminals is kept under two seconds, works just fine with a small gage solder and iron.

These directions are exactly what you need...I don't know what I did when disassembling mine that caused the on/off switch not to work so hot (or at all) once I put it back together...maybe I lost a piece or something but upon re-assembly I couldn't ever get the switch to the "On" position and thus the mouse wouldn't work.
I ended up leaving the plastic On/Off button out of the final product, which leaves the switch in the very helpful "On" position...you can gently stick a really small flathead into the switch to change back and forth between On & Off, its really quite difficult to see.

I, too, have an MX1000 Laser mouse. The mouse has been great until a few days ago and the battery started draining rapidly. Recharing it to full status takes just a few minutes but drains in a couple of hours. Logitech's website says the batteries aren't consumer-replaceable.
