I agree, Alkaline = Bad Idea. The first thing I did when the Pro-2006 arrived was replace the 9v with an Energizer Lithium 9 volt, which have a very long shelf life. I did not use a Lithium-ion, which I believe can self-discharge faster. So I'm not concerned with leakage at all, my only worry is how quickly will the radio drain that Lithium 9v once it's unplugged from AC power.
