Follow this guide to replace the battery on a Logitech G PRO Wireless mouse.

Replacing the battery on a G PRO Wireless mouse requires removing the mouse feet. If you plan to reuse the mouse feet, you’ll need to apply heat to loosen the adhesive and remove the feet with minimal bending. Bent or torn mouse feet may require replacement feet.

For your safety, discharge the battery below 25% before disassembling your mouse. This reduces the risk of a dangerous thermal event if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

  1. Shift the power switch down to turn off your mouse (when the PRO Wireless label is oriented right-side up). The color behind the switch should be red when the mouse is switched off. The color behind the switch should be red when the mouse is switched off.

    • Heat an iOpener and apply it to the upper mouse foot for one minute.

    • A hair dryer or heat gun may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the mouse—the internal battery is susceptible to heat damage. If you use a hair dryer or heat gun, set it to the lowest temperature setting and apply heat for 10 seconds.

  3. Insert the flat end of a spudger under the upper mouse foot. Each mouse foot has a gap in its recess that you can use to insert the spudger.

    • The mouse feet are made of two layers. Make sure you insert the spudger under the bottom layer to completely remove the foot.

  4. Slide the spudger under the length of the upper mouse foot to cut through the adhesive and detach it from the mouse. Work slowly to avoid bending the mouse foot. If the adhesive becomes difficult to cut through, remove the spudger and apply more heat. Work slowly to avoid bending the mouse foot.

  17. Use a pair of tweezers to pull the input cable out of its ZIF connector. The white line on this ribbon cable marks the edge of the connection area. To reinstall, insert the cable into the connector up to this line, and then close the locking flap. If the cable doesn’t insert easily up to (or very near to) this line, it’s probably misaligned and needs to be gently removed and repositioned.

Worked entirely fine for me. Since I bought replacement sliders/feet as well, I just skipped the warming up steps. The glue still separated very easily and overall took me like 10 seconds to remove all feet

Regarding the battery/flex-cable step, I personally removed the flex cable first as it’s much more fragile and less replaceable than the battery cable

I also removed the logic board to clean the area below, it’s pretty straight-forward. The only thing one has to remember is where the on/off switch colors go again during re-assembly. Answer: the blue side is at the bottom (when the PRO Wireless label is readable and NOT upside-down), you can find a photo in step 10

The symptoms I had before the repair were a bit weird, which is why I initially wasn’t sure if it’s the battery or not. Basically, my mouse wouldn’t charge a lot, but also wouldn’t work for a long time while connected via cable. Both of these appear to be fixed now (I’ll try to remember to update this comment if it turns out to be broken)

For a replacement battery, I managed to find an original battery on eBay that was disassembled from a returned mouse. That way I could be sure I’m not going to receive some potentially dangerous knock-off version, which I didn’t want to risk.
