Re: 9 volt rechargeable

If you should choose to go with a higher voltage battery with a regulator, take a look at this adjustable regulator/current limiter project, that was in CQ back in Feb of 2018 (I think) :

It has the advantage of being a linear device, so no RF noise from buck/boost switchers. And has internal, adjustable current limiting to protect connected devices. The regulator is low drop-out, so needs only about 10V input to regulate at 9V.
