    I'm prettty well sold on getting some Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) rechargeable batteries to power my wireless IEM. The Li-Ion look good to me because each charge lasts a long time. I've been researching 3 brands: iPower, HiTech, and Maximal Power. What do you guys think?

    I use Energizer rechargeables in mine, freshly recharged pair for each gig. No issues, works great.

    They aren't high dollar lithiums, but the standard ones you get at Walmart. I could probably get two gigs out of a single charge but I don't want to risk it.

    Ni-mh work fine and last longer than alkalines. You can get 1200ma or high power 1800ma. Just make sure the charger goes as high as the battery rating or you won't get a full charge.

    Ni-mh also won't get a memory. You can top them off in the charger anytime.
    Older Ni-cad needed to be fully discharged to get a full recharge. Not sure if Li-ion
    Are like that.
