It's about one-and-one-tenth times as heavy as a Battery (AA).
In other words, the weight of a Battery (AA) is 0.910 times 26 grams.
(Alkaline)
An "AA" size battery weighs 24 g. AA batteries came into common use during World War II and were given their name by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Committee C18 because they were smaller than the "A" size batteries which were invented first.
It's about one-and-one-fifth times as heavy as a Mouse.
In other words, the weight of a Mouse is 0.830 times 26 grams.
(a.k.a. "House mouse", Mus musculus) (adult)
The weight of a mouse is typically an average of 12 to 30 g. While most mice typically live two to three years, the Methuselah Mouse Prize — an award administered by a non-profit organization which advances aging-related research — was once awarded to a team of scientists whose research resulted in a mouse living just under five years.
It's about three-fourths as heavy as a Light Bulb.
In other words, the weight of a Light Bulb is 1.30 times 26 grams.
(a.k.a. lamp) (for A19-size, 60w, incandescent bulb by Bulbrite; package weight)
A standard, sixty-watt light bulb weighs about 34 grams. The tightly-coiled filament inside a bulb of this size would measure about 579mm if uncoiled and stretched out.
It's about one-and-seven-tenths times as heavy as a Compact disc.
In other words, the weight of a Compact disc is 0.590 times 26 grams.
(a.k.a. CD)
A compact disc typically weighs 15 g. Data is stored on CDs by encoding into the track a series of tiny pits — each between 3.5 and 850 µm (0.00014 and 0.033 in) in length.
It's about three-fifths as heavy as a Golf Ball.
In other words, 26 grams is 0.56610 times the weight of a Golf Ball, and the weight of a Golf Ball is 1.7660 times that amount.
(per R&A USGA Rules of Golf; maximum rule weight)
According to the Rules of Golf (as approved by the United States Golf Association and the Rules Committee of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of Saint Andrews), golf balls must weigh no more than 45.93 g. Golf balls are not required to have the familiar dimpled pattern, but the design has been popular since its invention in 1905 because it reduces drag while increasing lift.
It's about two times as heavy as a Battery (AAA).
In other words, 26 grams is 2.20 times the weight of a Battery (AAA), and the weight of a Battery (AAA) is 0.450 times that amount.
(Alkaline)
An "AAA" size battery weighs 12 g. Batteries are named by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Committee C18 and AAA batteries were given their name because they were smaller than the "AA" and "A" size batteries which were invented first.
It's about half as heavy as a Tennis Ball.
In other words, 26 grams is 0.4510 times the weight of a Tennis Ball, and the weight of a Tennis Ball is 2.220 times that amount.
(ITF Standard; for Type 2 ball)
Per International Tennis Federation standard, regulation tennis balls must weigh about 56.0 g to 59.4 g. Competition balls are also tested for bounce height, with the standards requiring that a ball dropped from 254 cm must bounce back to a height of 135 cm to 147 cm.
