We present new imaging and spectral analysis of the recently discovered extended X–ray emission around the high-magnetic-field rotating radio transient RRAT J1819–1458. We used two Chandra observations, taken on 2008 May 31 and 2011 May 28. The diffuse X–ray emission was detected with a significance of ~19σ in the image obtained by combining the two observations. Long-term spectral variability has not been observed. Possible scenarios for the origin of this diffuse X–ray emission, further detailed in Camero–Arranz et al. (2012), are here discussed.
