An extended study of the superconducting and normal-state properties of various as-grown and post-annealed Rb${}_{x}$Fe${}_{2\ensuremath{-}y}$Se${}_{2}$ single crystals is presented. Magnetization experiments evidence that annealing of Rb${}_{x}$Fe${}_{2\ensuremath{-}y}$Se${}_{2}$ at 413 K, well below the onset of phase separation ${T}_{\mathrm{p}}\ensuremath{\simeq}489$ K, neither changes the magnetic nor the superconducting properties of the crystals. In addition, annealing at 563 K, well…
