I've been able to get my G305's weight down by using lithium AAA batteries with an AAA battery adapter. Lithium batteries are the lightest AAA batteries I've found so far. The ones I use are Energizer Lithium, they're around £1.74 per battery in a 4-pack of £6.99.

I can't remember off the top of my head, but I believe my G305 weighs around 86g thanks to the AAA battery.

 

I can't comment on back cover as I've not been able to get any 3D-printing done to reduce the weight down further.

I've done the same with the AAA lithium ... now I've seen that there's AAAA batteries that exist ...

 

As for the cover mods there's that one I found ... Haven't ordered it cause here with shipping it cost about the same as what I paid the mouse on sale just for the battery cover.
