This is absolutely true.

I was just talking with a coworker yesterday and saying it would be great if at least there was a meter on the battery itself.  But yeah, it'll work and be perfect right up to the moment that it fails.

Because of this problem with the li-ions, I have a schedule I stick to and make sure to switch out my batteries after a number of uses. eg. for my iems, I switch out the AA's every second show. They last 3 but I do this to be safe in case of longer shows, pack getting left on when not in use etc. I never even bother with the battery meter anymore and I have never had a problem. I keep a piece of paper in my pack drawer with everything logged in it and check it before each show just to be safe. I also rotate my batteries so they all get the same amount of use.  What can I say... its that OCD thing again ???

Or, if they could modify the DC-DC converter to give a discharge slope similar to an alkaline.

which is an obvious solution i didn't think of. 

of course then they wouldn't have their selling point of of rock solid 1.5 v for the duration of the battery discharge.  :)

This thread reappeared just about the same time I opened the last pack of my bulk purchased 9v. It inspired me to finally make the purchase. I ordered the EBL charger with 4 batteries plus an extra 8 batteries. Often our band plays only 1 set per gig. (1 set for 4 hours straight through.) Hopefully these will hold up for 1 of our sets.
