I ordered one but haven't hooked it up yet. Charging it as I write this. These things look pretty handy but they only last 4-5 hrs.
Chime in if you are using one.

My friend and I who play at church each have a set. We use them off and on. I haven't had any issues with signal, but I stay within 20ft or so of my amp either way. Battery life can be an issue depending on how long you play. We play a few songs per weekend, and I can usually get two weekends out of mine per charge. If I get lazy on the charging it has died and I have to change to a cord quickly.

A guitarist friend of mine and his former bass player are both satisfied U2 users. I prefer the U2's design to my current belt pack system but wonder whether I might sometimes miss having more channel options if I switched.

I have used a Shure BLX-1 for a few years
Works great and I like the bit of compression and boost it gives. For my taste it makes my rig sound better than with a cable

I just bought a Joyo JW-02 wireless. While it doesn't have the spring-loaded dongles, it does work on the 5.8GHz band. I was put off by some reviews that say the 2.4 Ghz can interfere with wireless ipad/mixer setups, and that's what my main guy has at his house. Ran it Monday without any interference. The main concern was whether the transmitter would stay in place. So far, so good. And it's only $98 on Amazon or Ebay. I found a US Based Ebay seller, got it in 3 days instead of a week to 10 days. AND 4 channels are available.

I have other band practice tonight, will test how far I can walk away from it!

Any updates, BbendFender? These look like cool tools. I'm also curious about the new Boss ones.

And firebird - Angus got the same thing out of his Schaffer wireless and it's an integral part of his tone now.

Brent. I used the set at practice last week and they worked perfectly. No noise and they made it through 3 hours of practice with power remaining. I hope they will last 5 hrs. which should get me through any gig.
So far, money well spent.

I like the way they fold up. Plug in and they fold up against the edge our my Tele. I say better than some I've seen with 4-5 inches of "stuff" hanging out of your guitar.

Cool, thanks for the update. Sounds like a great fit if the battery life is as hoped.

I haven't bought a wireless unit since before the FCC changed the rules. Maybe I'll start looking at some of these new ones.

I've been using the NUX B2 system and have not had any interference problems. 4 channels, have only used the default channel since I'm the only one using wireless.

The transmitter uses battery faster than the receiver, and is good for at least 4 hours. Easily fits under a strat tremolo arm. Charges quickly, but I haven't timed it.

My Xvive worked great at the gig last night. I used cables for practice and then switched to the wireless thing when the gig started. We played for about 3.5 hrs. and it held charge like a champ. Very easy to transition from my Tele to my acoustic Takamine. Noise free.

Bandmate just bought the Xvive. The only thing he noticed was an occasional dropout when his phone blipped at him. He moved the phone out of his pocket, all OK!
The Joyo had no issues. I played with my iphone in my front pocket closest to the transmitter all practice with no drops.

Got it today and tried at home. Seems great so far. Band practice Saturday to see how it works.

Same here.

I got mine over the weekend and charged it up. As near as I can tell no issues with tone or noise.

I have band practice tonight and I'll test it out.

In researching the above, I ran across a cheap alternative wireless, similar to the above systems. Similar specs. If anyone is interested, shoot me an email.

Worked great. Band members impressed and thinking of getting one themselves.
