NiMH battery technology delivers a lower voltage. I'm wondering why the wireless devices would have more trouble with 9V batteries than other devices using AA batteries.

(voltage for alkaline / voltage for NiMH = voltage ratio)
9V batteries : 9V/7.2V = 1.25
AA batteries: 1.5V/1.2V = 1.25

Here's a table of what I could gather from the Energizer website. The latest 2800 mAh NiMH AA's are pretty much on par with their Alkaline brothers. The latest 1000 mAh NiMH AAA are 25% behind, while the latest 9V 170-200mAh NiMH are totally behind.

good question about rechargeable for wired mics. I don't know the answer, I made a mistake in using rechargeable in wireless, now I only use alkaline for all my audio equipment that aren't built for NiMH. Haven't had the time or wanted risk trying NiMH.

Here's the update on PowerEx NiMH batteries . NICE! I guess Energizer is still loving sales of C, D and 9V non-rechargeable batteries as those are far behind.

AAA 1000 mAh at 1.2V
AA 2700 mAh at 1.2V
C 5000 mAh at 1.2V
D 11000 mAh at 1.2V
9V 300 mAh at 9.0V (actually 8.4V?)
9V 230 mAH at 9.6V

Note from PowerEx:
Most commercially available 9V rechargeable batteries are only 8.4V and don't work well in paintball hoppers and many other applications.
