Good thing I had a spare 9v on me...

Well I now know what my SR500F sounds like when the battery is dying.
During the service, but fortunately I had a spare and changed it right away--so minimal notes missed.

Now I plan to get a tester & check my battery the night before.

How often do you normally change it?

I got it last February, and haven't changed it before.
It was working fine during the week.
But I keep a spare in my case-just in case.
Now I have a better idea of how long it will last.

I don't leave the cable plugged in when I'm not playing.

My SLG100S sounds like a tornado siren shutting down. It happened last week and I wasn't sure what it was until I noticed the green led was out. I try to carry spares and luckily had one on hand. Seriously considering a battery tester as the tongue isn't too reliable and doesn't really work with AAs (my AC3R takes 2).

I've had two instances of my bass battery dying while playing (pretty good since I've had my Yamaha for six years). But your post reminds me I'm probably due for a change.

Do you leave yours plugged in for the whole session or what? I've been using a Planetwaves circuit breaker cable and switching it off so I can safely unplug it. So it's usually only plugged in about an hour a week.

I just got a new Dean 10 Edge replaced because the battery drained to nothing in less than two weeks. I got it before Christmas and was changing the 9V battery every other week. The music store took care of the problem and got on the phone with Dean and returned it for me. They sent a new one to replace it and its working fine now for a month.

I unplug it during the sermon and as soon as the postlude is done.
And sometimes in between when we finish our pre-service practice and the prelude start.
I have a Zzyzx Snap Jack--and I take off the cable, then the plug.

I also don't play every Sunday--and I play unplugged a lot at home.
