Has anyone tried Lithium Polymer batteries?

They aren't cheap @ $15 each, but neither are buying alkalines for every show.
Maybe a couple of small scratches, but thats because these mics are chick magnets.
Girls always up on Andy tryin to grab these mics, the scratches are from their wedding rings.

i usually use my regular duracells for 2 - 3 hour shows and an opener or two at about an hour each

so total 8 hours on each pair before i toss them.  Still no drop in the meter though.  This is for the lemosax with 5 pin binder.

Well don't use Eveready Super Heavy Duty Batteries... The ones that are 2 for $0.99. They only lasted about 30min in my lemosax.

I tried some generic non-alkaline 9v's once and got a little longer runtime. They lasted about 75 minutes but the wavforms only looked good for the first 60 minutes or so. As soon as I turned the sax on with the fresh batteries it went into low indicator mode.

Has anyone used 9.6v NiMH batteries with this preamp? It seems as if the usual 8.4v NiMH batteries as listed as 9v have issues?

It isn't fear. It isn't subjective. You can measure it on a scope.
