    I tried an Eveready Advanced lithium battery in my Music Man Stingray with the pop-out battery holder. But the battery went in halfway and stuck. I had to disassemble the battery compartment to get the battery out. This particular battery was quite larger than regular 9V batteries, but I didn't catch that until it was jammed in the compartment.

    Does anyone know of a lithium 9V battery that isn't oversize, so to save me some money buying them to check?...:oops:))

    Thanx,
    Geri O

    I suck to badly to endorse anyone.
    I'm using those batteries on my Fenders' with the old fashioned style battery compartment, they're great... last forever, have a great stable shelf life. I too am interested in using them in my Stingray but now that I've read this I'm reluctant. I wish there was a simple replacement for the Stingray's battery compartment.. I know some like it but I find it cheap and plasticy..
