juicedlink and rechargeables

with a juicedlink dt454 running phantom power, i'm burning through 9v batteries pretty quickly. has anyone used rechargeables with their juicedlink? i was looking at some of the high-capacity 520 mah ipower lithium-poly batteries and wondering if they would be usable for limited stretches. thanks.

- edit -
the ipower batteries would seem to work just fine according to the manual. note to self: RTFM.

Re: juicedlink and rechargeables

A guy I know uses those rechargeables, he's happy and says he has another set as backup. Apparently they die pretty quick.

If you do a lot of work you have to realise you'll probably be recharging 24/7, you only forget once :)

Cheers.

Re: juicedlink and rechargeables

Can you share a link of the rechargeable battery please. I do have a juicedLink DT 454 and have faced situations where the battery has drained and these 9V batteries are not easy to find in smaller towns near the forests.

Sabyasachi, you could probably find a source for those rechargables closer to home, say in Mumbai. I'd only buy name brand.

Cheers.

Re: juicedlink and rechargeables

I know this isn't exactly on topic, but I was given some 1/2 used lithium AA batteries to try in my Senni G2 radio mics..... wonderful.
I now use lithiums in my radio mics, instead of measuring battery life in hours of use..... I now work in days of use. (commercial / doco / news shooting) Just don't forget to turn them off overnight
$$$ v time in use in my mind lithiums win hands down.
