    I use these in Shure ULXP wireless packs for theatre, and we are getting consistent 4-5 hour run time with only one drop in metering (3 bars to 2). Of the original set of four I bought two years ago, three are still in use (one early failure), and an additional set of eight bought one year ago are all very solid. In fact, I've just ordered eight more plus the chargers to take us to a total of 20. These pay for themselves in less than one show run.

    Many have reported that they don't get full battery bars when they first put them in, and I've found the solution for that. Put in a NEW standard 9V Alkaline battery, and turn on the pack and wait until it shows the full 3 bars. Then pull that battery and put in the rechargeable. You should see a full battery meter.

    Also, and this is VERY IMPORTANT, make sure you have the recharger switch set to the Li mode. If you recharge these on the NiCad mode, they can be damaged (previous experience from a church).

    Don't let the price scare you away. These will pay for themselves very quickly.

    I am reasonably pleased with this charger. It is easy to use and charges batteries super-fast. My only complaint is that the wire on the AC adapter is thin and flimsy--definitely not appropriate for frequent travel. After a year of use, the leads in the wire became exposed at the point where the wire connects to the adapter and then it ripped. So now I have to buy a whole new charger. As anybody who has ever tried to replace an AC adapter knows, it is nearly impossible to do. If iPower would package the charger with a sturdier adaptor, I would recommend this product to anyone. Or if they would just sell the adapter separately I would be a happy customer. If you do get this charger maker sure to double the end with electrical tape, do not move it around a lot, and once in place do not mess with it. Sure enough, if you keep to these tips you will not have spend anther $[$].00 like I have to.

        charger cable breaks easily

        Comments about iPower FC-9VX44 Fast Smart 9V 4-Bay Charger:

        A few others have the same issue... the charger cable is very thin and flimsy. Mine frayed and is useless... broke right at the plug so I cannot rewire. Hard to replace the mini-plug with a new one. Batteries are great, though.

                    it works well. the only problem is that you have to remember to change the switch on the side if you are charging different battery types. the best part is the included car charger cord.

                    Giving this charger a poor rating due to a lack of part replacements (AC power supply) and poor customer service from the manufacturer.The 4-Bay Charger isn't the problem per se. It is the iPower's flimsy power supply that plugs into the charger. The cables have failed repeatedly and the lack of that specific part replacement has forced me to buy the whole charger bay several times, rather than just the cable. Their cables are cheaply made and offer no strain relief, so these cables break loose from their shielding and need to be replaced. If B&H could offer the cable as a replacement part, I would be a satisfied customer. Several calls/emails to the manufacturer have yielded zero responses to this issue.

                              I got this as a kit with four 500mah lithium rechargeables. I use these for powering my sennheiser wireless lav transmitter and receiver. So far I've never needed to change the two batteries all day, but just in case I have two backups. I'm glad to be done with weak, expensive, toxic disposeables. The kit should pay for itself after about ten gigs.

                                Super Fast. Super Easy. Fool-Proof charging unit. I purchased this charger and 4 9 volt LI-Polymer rechargeable batteries for my wireless microphone for my mobile DJ business. Now I never have to worry about running out of power again. Very small size. Fits in my mic gig bag with the rest of my microphones and gear. I wouldn't leave for a show without it.

                                          I just got this and have only charged the batteries once, so I can't speak to longevity or holding a charge over a long period of time. But I can the 4 batteries charged within 1-2 hours and all are currently working fine, so I'm happy.

                                            I got the B&H kit (with the 4 9V Batteries), and this thing charges your batteries fast (about an hour)! The batteries hold an impressive charge too. When a "regular" 9v battery would be dead, these things keep going. Why can't they make more batteries like these? If you're on the go and don't have all day for a battery to charge, this is your charger...get on it man!
