When you roll in, set-up and sound check, everything will be peachy.
Then, the audience comes in with all their wireless gak.
Without pro level gear and co-ordination, yer screwed.
Batteries can be your friend, but they need attention too. They will fail without warning at some point.
I don't have a problem with using a battery "confidence monitor", or a spot fill somewhere. On my mains? NO WAY.
Simple setup like that, use wires when possible.

In the words of one famous philosopher, "I've got a bad feeling about this".

You mean Han Solo when they dropped out of hyperspace and got the first glimpse of the 1st DeathStar?

Quite honestly, relying on that much battery powered/ wireless gear would scare me to death!
Running cables, once you have an organized approach can be so quick - I've got my methods down pat!
I can have full PA ( Mixer, Iem rack, wireless rack, Subs & tops) and lighting front and back (4 pars per tree at front and 2 trees of spots at back) all set up and ready to go (including iem and wireless mic scans) in less than an hour. Yes there is 2 of us, BUT Chris is concentrating on the other players needs including his own for bass - drum mics, guitar mic, bass DI, vocal mics etc. leaving me to the PA.
It looks like you don't have anything else to worry about but your own needs vox & guitar so save yourself the grief of when wireless just doesn't want to play nice - and it WILL happen.

edit: To clarify - I do use wireless in the form of mics and IEM but it's relying on a wireless PA that concerns me.

I've been reading up a bit on RCF and I think it may be the way to go. I know they've been difficult to get here in Canada in the past, so I'll have to look into it. Is the NX910A just the newer version of the NX910A?

The TT515A and TT808 look really cool--they're so small! I wonder how they sound, and I wonder how the TT515A sounds without the sub.
Also check FBT Vertus CLA 206a (or CLA 406a) over 206Sa sub (or CLA 118A sub, which is heavier).
Again, too many choices. Good luck.

Mobile DJ business. So pre-recorded pop, rock, dance music in smaller venues.

Check out the IP3000 to see if they'll be loud enough for you. Other manufacturers offer similar format solutions. Hard to beat them for convenience, in the right applications.

You haven't specified program material, but I've found the Turbosound IP format to be very friendly for Corp/talking heads and lower SPL live music.

Yes. Get the PA drive out of the desk and use a system DSP.

^^This^^

Added bonus; no risk of having someone load a patch that wipes out filtering and blows drivers.

The lighter and more compact, the better.  :)

I haven't heard them, but RCF has the TT515A, which specs better than the previous TT052A. And they will have a companion TT808 2x 8" subwoofer.

Whatever time and effort you save with "wireless", you'll spend on charging all the batteries and dealing with interference.

This looks like a solo presenter/performer - school assemblies, nursing homes, etc.  I can see why you'd want to minimize cable crossings.
