Trust me fellas, Id MUCH RATHER use rechargeables 9v, but Jon/Naiant said specifically told me NOT to use them with my 9v LB because the voltage would be too low. So I buy 8/packs of Energizer MAX 9v at Sams Club every so often, and get 3 shows per 9v, as said above. I HATE buying Alkaline 9vs, but at least I get the MAX capacity out of them doing 3 shows per battery! Its still MUCH BETTER than my old LemoSax. That sucker used 2x9v PER SHOW :( Thats one of the reasons I sold it. But Im glad I did, because I like Schoeps>LB[OT] better than my old Schoeps>Sax tapes 8)

anr, Chris has a spec at 10mA, it's just simple math from there.  The runtimes are going to be long enough that you won't be able to easily track battery life.  The battery box life is practically forever.  Buy a $9 battery tester or a multimeter.  When the 9V gets to 7V, stop using it.

I put specs on my site but not too many people read them anyway.  A littlebox is much higher draw than Chris' amps, so you can't use rechargeables *with phantom mics* because of their higher internal resistance.

Bean, you might be OK on low power with a rechargeable + KCY, but you won't get the same runtime as an alkaline.  That setup is much lower draw than phantom mics.

Really? Thats great news Jon 8) I would keep the Energizer 9v Alkalines for festies and thats it! Id LOVE to be able to get some rechargeable 9vs for my LB!

So, is that charger that comes with those batts Chris linked for us, a "smart" charger or just a decent charger? I NEED something thats very reliable :) Like as reliable as AA/AAA rechargeable batts/chargers :)

Thanks,
Bean

These are lithium ion batteries do not USE any other charger than one designed for these batteries and it works fine I use it all the time. If you ever try to charge lithium ion batteries in a regular charger you are in for a very nasty surprise! Do not do it.
