We highly recommend these batteries for wireless microphones, TENS units, guitar effect pedals, wireless guitar and bass systems, in-ear monitors and other devices that call for a 9-volt sized battery.
Given the technology behind these batteries, a standard NiMH/NiCd charger will NOT charge this battery. You need a charger designed for Li-Poly/Li-Ion batteries. The charger we offer that will charge this battery is our 2 Bank 9 Volt Battery Charger.
Charging this in a charger not designed for Li-Poly batteries will cause fire or explosion. Charging this battery in a NiMH/NiCd charger will void your warranty.
Important note about the voltage of this battery:
Rechargeable batteries, like this 9V-size Lithium Ion battery, are rated at a lower voltage than their Alkaline-based alternatives. If your application absolutely requires a full 9 volts to operate, rechargeable batteries may not work for you. Please view the datasheet or give us a call at 1-800-405-2121 for further information.
If your device has a charge indicator, this battery will most likely not show a "full" charge when installed. These indicators are calibrated for alkaline 9 volt batteries, which, by design, have a higher initial voltage level than a fully charged rechargeable battery. The battery will work, but the indicator will display inaccurate results.
i really like these batteries
These are far better than any previous 9v rechargeable batteries. I have tried NiCad and NiMH. They hold their charge and run longer in my devices (wireless microphones). The only improvement would be if they would work properly with the battery charge indicator on the devices. Since these batteries work on a slightly lower voltage than alkaline, they show a low charge on my devices when fully charged.
To get around this issue, I bought a second set and just swap batteries twice a month. This is more frequent than some of my mics need, but it makes it easy to track.
The indicator for the battery power is the only reason I did not give it 5 stars.
These batteries are not as powerful as I would expect, given their rating. After having used the product for less than a month, one battery of the three I purchased has stopped working (won't charge) and another seems to be on the way out. Really regret purchasing this product.
i use these in transmitters for lectrosonic wireless systems. they last at least 5 hours but I have had them last 7hours. Some transmitters ( Comtek ) don't have the space in them to accommodate the battery. The HiTech is just a little bit bigger than a standard 9 volt battery
These batteries work great and I'm replacing all of my iPowerUS 520 rechargeable that I have been using for years. Contrary to what the web site will have you believe, these will work with other chargers that work with lithium polymer. I'm the living proof of that.
We use these batteries in wireless mics and in ear monitor battery packs. The batteries are just a smidgen to large for the Shure body packs used for the in ear monitors. The casing around the battery is bigger than a normal 9V battery. Make sure what you are buying them for has a generous battery area otherwise they may not fit.
We use this product in our church microphones and they are the best batterie we have ever purchased
