has anyone tried it with a strat yet? i was thinking of wiring up my '96 MIM with one of these, but i wanted people with previous experience to tell me how they enjoyed/disliked it.0

i mainly want it to fatten up slide solos on my strat, because i don't want to be switching out guitars after every three songs. plus, i like the idea of having the fatness of a humbucker, with the snap of a single coil, with minimal modifications to the body.

so, how easy it it to install? what are some things to look out for? how long is the battery life? is it worth it to rout out a battery compartment or should i just replace it every time i change strings (3 months)?
