If I could add weights to it to make it heavier...might convince me off corded mice. Switched the weight out of my MX500 into my 518, then switched the covers. Amazing how much better my hand feels now.

With 2xAA batteries, you shouldn't need it much heavier

my logitech M185 claims a year of battery life, but thats because of the 15A battery they included with it. i doubt i'll see batteries with that much power on the shelf when it goes dry...
