They are called POWEREX and the package says  NiMH 230 mAh and true 9.6v long lasting rechargeable  - the recharger box ays MH-C490F STEALTH  and it will regarge 4 batteries at one time - it also comes with a car charge adapter cord.  They were bought at one of those battery stores.  

So far so good on the recharge 9v's.

Well, my Samson Airline guitar wireless finally crapped out last week, so I went out and picked up the X2-XDS Plus model for $279.
(middle of the line model)

My one sentence review would be:
The X-2 sounds great, but needs needs gentle care and constant feeding.

To expound:
The X-2 sounds great.  I can't hear the difference from a cord.

The belt pack seems very flimsy.  I thought I was going to break it just getting the battery door open.  I do worry that it will fall apart and would pay more for a sturdier transmitter pack.

It chews through batteries. We play 3 one hour sets a night.  The indicator was well below half at the end of one night, so it's going to want a new 9 volt every night.
Definitely time to research rechargable batteries.

I haven't tested it's range yet.  It worked good enough to get out front and check sound.

It does sound very good.  Thanks for starting the thread Bob.  I had no idea I'd need the info so soon!

OK - I've used my newfangled rechargeable 9 volt batteries in the transmitter a few times now and they work! However they don't last very long and you might need to change a battery at the end of your 2nd set. I did get one to last a full 3 sets one time.


Gene, what exactly are you using?

no wonder they're not hanging. get the ipower lithium ions from thomas distributing, which are 500mAh, or twice the power capacity. they actually last as long or longer than regular alkalines. plus, the charger is small enough to mount on your pedalboard (where i keep mine for my ps400 IEM; a battery will last me 2 gigs!)
