According to R/C Dude Hobbies, if it's this battery ; Hyperion G3 CX 7.4v 2S 240mah 25C/45C Lipo - it weighs 17g stock.
I can't remember the exact figures but I believe the heatshrink weighed about 1.4gm when removed. I don't think that would make the difference. I'll weigh the dime too for reference. You can certainly leave the heatshrink on as you said. I remove it to get the weight down for my other UMX planes (Beast, Sbach, etc)
The battery you referenced is similar but they now mass produce them with the stock UMX connector that Horizon uses.
I can't post the pic but here is a direct link:
Here is a Hyperion Spec sheet as well with all weights listed:
