I wish portable synths would adopt 18650 batteries

...or any other rechargable, user replaceable batteries. While I appreciate having the option for AA batteries, they aren't exactly ideal because:

-they don't last particularly long

-they're expensive to continually replace

-using rechargeable AA batteries resolves the expensive part, but then you have to still swap them out a lot because they still don't last very long

Like seriously, just give a spot for a couple of 18650 batteries (or a single 18650 for the really tiny synths, like the volca series) and it's the best of all worlds. The convenience of lithium recharge in the unit itself, longer battery life in general, user replaceability and, if you're traveling, you can just take some extra charged batteries with you to swap out without worrying about being near a charging source
