From my perspective, the guitar is a neat gimmick...but nobody wants to shell out serious cash for a gimmick. This is why product and marketing research companies exist to determine if there is really a market for something and if so, how must a product be tailored to meet the needs of the market. I guess Antares and Peavey spent more money on hype marketing and less on finding out if this business model would work.

I just spent another $9.99 for AA batteries which brings my total spent for the AT-200 to $40+ (with tax) on batteries in a short 2 1/2 months. At this rate, I will spend close to $200 a year on batteries to run this guitar...awesome!!! (and yes I am aware of the AT-200B which currently has no date for availability)

In any event, if you have two sets of 4 AAs, that should get you through most gigs.
You can get set up with 8 rechargeables and a charger for less than $30. Most of these batteries claim to be good for 1000 cycles, but even if they only get you 500 cycles, that works out to 3 to 6 cents a night.
As a caveat, I have yet to buy a feature pack so I don't know how that might affect battery life.

"We are sorry that you are having difficulties. Please look for an email from our Auto-Tune for Guitar support. Thank you very much for your patience! Here are a few steps to try:
1. Make sure that you are using "regular" non-rechargable as the voltage in a rechargeable battery is only 1.2 Volts instead of 1.5 Volts, which is in a regular AA battery.
2. Have the guitar turned off.
3. Pluck the A (A2) string and immediately turn the guitar on while the string is still ringing.
Your guitar should now work properly"
Antares apparently does not recommend or support the use of rechargeable batteries.
Interesting perspective on lead playing using less battery than chords...go figure
