Wow- Welcome back man! It's great to hear from you. :tu:

I'm kind of like Graham, I just leave them in. However, nowadays they have a best before date, so I try to replace them before that happens...

I don't think I've ever had a 9v leak. I check them all every few years when I'm having a pedal tidy.

The AA's do NOT live in my Maestro though!
