Azden’s PRO-XD Digital Wireless Microphone System transmitter and receiver components are powered by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. While this has many advantages, the nature of lithium-ion rechargeable batteries is such that their capacity to hold a charge diminishes gradually over time. Unfortunately the batteries inside the PRO-XD transmitter and receiver are not user replaceable.
But we at Azden don’t want this intrinsic nature of the lithium-ion battery to be a limitation on the lifespan of your PRO-XD system! That is why we are offering this battery replacement program.
If you are finding that your PRO-XD transmitter and receiver are running down their batteries faster than when they were brand new, you may send the units to Azden to have them replaced by our technicians.

PRO-XD Battery FAQ
The “lifespan” should be about 300 charge cycles, which approximates usage of 2,625 hours for the transmitter and 3,600 hours for the receiver. How this translates in “years” depends on how often the system is used and charged. Here are some examples using the spec for the transmitter:
|Average weekly usage||Lifespan|
|10 hours||5 years|
|25 hours||2 years|
|50 hours||1 year<|
Bear in mind the lifespan would be longer for the receiver.
Once the batteries reach the 300 cycle mark, it is not that they will cease to operate. They will continue to work with about 50% of their original charge capacity. For some users this may still be acceptable as it would approximate 5.5 hours use time on the transmitter and 8 hours use time on the receiver.
