(Sustainer+pickup in one single coil space)...
Mine is the previous version with a single coil driver next to a single
coil pu in a humbucking size hole. Some people put both on a single
humbucker mounting plate, but I set mine up as 2 single coils so I could
individually optimize their adjustmtents.
Battery life: I've been using mine since around July 15th and have gone
through 2 batteries... this has been with erratic semi-regular use.
Possibly 1-2 hours 2 times a week. I'd say I get WELL over 3-5 hours per
battery. I'll know more after longer term usage. (I don't have it turned
on all the time I'm playing either...)

This system SMOKES the ebow... I also use it more due to it's built-in
