    I was too excited and in a hurry to try this very clever solution. This is not what will stop me. I have already been reimbursed by the merchant who told me that he was very sorry for this situation and that he will tell his supplier (Yeah right ...).I totally agree with your security philosophy, there is no compromise to be made. The only economy that interests me here and this is the case for all those who appreciate this Insctructable, is to eliminate the consumption of alkaline batteries and have a reasonable time of use with rechargeable batteries.I will do more research to find the batteries I need.I also really appreciate the monitoring and advice.Thanks again,

    You know what guys. I think I have ben fooled. There is no such 14500 of 2800mAh in Ultrafire's website. The maximum capacity for 14500 is 1200mAh. The battery voltage reading was 3.9V yesterday evening. Today, I thought my mouse was dead. I took a look at the voltage it was 2.99V. Be carful guys, there is a lot of contrefit batteries and electronic stuff these days. I knew it and I got caught. I got 4 of those batteries for $10 US really not expensive for such capacity.The same seller, king-future, on Ebay.ca sell 6 X 3.7V 18650 9800mAh Li-ion Rechargeable Battery for $12. Usually, the capacity of size 18650 is near 4000mAh and cost $4 for one cell.

    Finally, I made the "modification". At first, I decided not to disassemble my mouse and rather to give it a try with a single battery. I found a screw long enough to bypass the location of the second battery. I added a small piece of foam to make sure it did not short-circuit with the case (Think safe a Lithium-Ion batterie has a lots of energy always avoid possible short). According to my calculations, if your two 750mAh batteries lasted 29 days. My 2800mAh should last me 54 days. It took me more time to post the information and add the pictures ;)My calculations:(2x750mAh / 29days) = 51.7 mAh / day2800mAh / (51.7mAh / day) = 54 daysI will follow up in 54 daysThank you so much!
