MY RATIONALE ...
The use of rechargeable batteries (NiMH not NiCad) can save you substantial amounts of money. There are some caveats - especially in wireless mic systems.
The good news is that in our systems that means they are still good for a full 2 act show with out much risk.
We rent a set of 32 AA NiMH batteries with a 16 slot intelligent charger for $25 for the week ($3 per additional day)
This means you need to buy 5 additional sets of batteries - thats 80 good alkaline AAs at say $0.30-$0.50 each for a total of $24.00 - $40.00
Rental is $25 for the same period and we give you 2 sets per channel for fast change over in case of emergencies or if you have a matinee and evening show.
SAVING$ - $24.00 to $40.00 less $25 = $1 more to $15.00 less and we put 96 less used batteries into landfill!
This means you need to buy 10 additional sets of batteries - thats 480 good alkaline AAs at say $0.30-$0.50 each for a total of $144.00 - $240.00
Rental is $138 for the same period and we give you 2 sets per channel for fast change over in case of emergencies or if you have a matinee and evening show.
SAVING$ - $144.00 to $240.00 less $138 = $6 less to $96.00 less and we put 528 less used batteries into landfill!
The more shows and rehearsals you have the better the savings and the less landfill we use up.
