I'm saving up for a guitar that has EMGs (ESP H-1001) and was wondering, how long would the battery last?
I take really good care of my guitar, unplug it right after I'm done and everything.

I've heard numerous things...some say it lasts for like, 2 weeks, others about 6 months. So, what's the average life for these things?


Thanks

Oof, mere seconds.

I kid, you're going to get at least a few months out of them, you can normally hear when they're running down as your guitar starts to sound muddy and distorted.

You tried looking around on the EMG site or anything?

Most rechargeable 9 volt batts dont hold a charge or last as long as a regular one. The energizer rechargables dont hold a charge at all. I bought a bunch figured I would save buying batts all the time. But unless you keep em in the charger until ready to use they will probably be dead. BAttery companies make a whole lot more money selling regular batts than they do batts that can be used over and over. The batts in my EMGs will go for 6 months or more.

Ages- I've had my EMG's in my guitar since...hmm not sure exact month, but before March. I play every day for at least 3 hours and still going strong.

OH, one more thing...Are the cleans really as horrific as people make it out to be? Cause, you know, I wanna play clean every once in a while...haha

tbh, the cleans on the 81 aren't amazing. but they weren't meant to be. they're also not unusable, they're just a tad sterile is all. the 85 in the neck produces amazing cleans for sure though.

So would like...both of them together be good? Cause I never use just the bridge in cleans.
I always just use the neck and both
But it sounds like it'd be good..

So, I guess I'm gonna go ahead with my plans and save up ha

Thanks again, guys

Agreed with the guy above me, the 81s arent special but the 85 is a very nice clean pickup. btw my battery has lasted 4 months so far with 2-3 hours per day and still going, so you shouldnt have a problem.
