    how come they don't make rechargealbe 9 volt batteries? this is indirectly related to effects since i use 9 volt batteries for my effects.

    9v. rechargeables are available. Sanyo makes them, and probably others. I think they will die faster than alkaline batteries, though.

    I see rechargables in the local supermarket. I have a multipurpose charger that has steps for all sizes and a 9v adapter on the 'floor' of the housing.

    I personally use Duracells on my basses and pedals.
  4. Again..

    Use Lithium-Ion batteries.

    Regular rechargables have about 120mAh, and 8.85 volt..

    Lihtium-Ion batteries have 1200mAh and 9 (!) volt.
  5. I'd rather get an AC power suply...

    The NiMH rechargable batteries hold more of a charge than normal Alkaline batteries and they recharge 500 or more times. However, they only have a life of ~100 days though, because they loose 1% of their stored energy a day at room temperature. I think rechargable batteries would lower the amount of money you spend on batteries in the long run. I would buy an extra NiMH battery though, because they take 15 hours to recharge (at least in the charger I have).

    Sears has a rechargeable nickel metal hydride battery which has little to no memory. They come in all sizes from 9V to D.

    The recharger unit costs $20 and will also recharges AA, AAA size batteries. I've forgotten how much the 9Vs cost, but I believe they're less than $8.

    i wouldnt screw around with any recharable batteries besides lithium ion. it doesn't have a "memory" in it, thus they can be recharged fully at any time. and u can also drop them a fair amount of times, and it still wont decrease the power capacity. im not sure if they make 9 volt lithium ion batteries.
