'80's induced gadgetry.
There's no good reason to have active onboard crap on yer bass. Your
amp has a pre-amp in it right? Same damn thing without the batteries.
And I'm not buying the driving the signal down a long cable story
either....use a shorter cable or if you need that much mobility go
wireless. At least the batteries are doing something obviously
necessary in a wireless transmitter.
Before you go around calling active electronics "crap" consider which
bassists use (or have used) them:
John Paul Jones
Rodney "Skeet" Curtis
I think John Entwistle did for a bit too..
