Try searching for: 

Accu NP-F550

Or one ofe these: NP-F330, NP-F570, NP-F750, NP-F930, NP-F530

They seemto be the same battery. They're for some camera's.

Maybe you can get those in Israel.

Worst case scenario is you blow 15 to 20 Euro

The Line-6 Tyler Variax batteries have an Echip to verify conformity and being s genuine Li-Ion type for the Line-6 product.

 

It's not Line 6's fault, has more to do with the global CE IEC safety standards that became effective 2012 and are now enforced

 

and i was thinking of buying a Helix...

Use a Variax VDI Ethercon cable and you don't need a battery when used with any Line-6 VDI port equipped gear ( Helix, HD500, XT Live, Vetta)

 

Or order the Line -6 Variax TRS 1/4" Power adapter /DI box

Oh - so it's not availability that's the problem. It's cost. Are electronics in general more expensive, including shipping, in Israel?

 

In any case, I don't think it has anything to do with Line 6 service as stated in your original post. They're not responsible for pricing and shipping in other countries. Costs more in Canada, too.

I'm confused. It seems you can get one immediately - but at a cost you don't like.

Don't blame Line6 for your countries ridiculous tariffs. The battery is about $50 in the US.

Who do we blame for the cost here, then? Even $50 is silly. ;)

I heard you can use Sony camera battery as replacement for tyler variax. Does anyone of you had an experience trying this one?

Yes, "cash-flow protection mechanism" prevents use of non-Line6 batteries.

Correct, camera batteries won't work,...

 

- The pin-outs are different

- The drain rate is different

 

We have enough overheating or exploding Li-Ion batteries out there,

so don't use any substitutes. Used to see similar problems with Sony

Discmans and Toshiba laptops, back in the 1990's. Substitute batteries,...

... don't go there.

It's like that with everybody's products, not just Line 6.

Less about cash flow, more about keeping the Samsung

scenario from occurring.
