OK, I'm dangerous now. I've got rechargeable batteries for the digital camera. All those flash pictures were draining the batteries (yes the Eveready good ones with the little "e"). I picked up the Energizer AccuRechargeable battery charger and a half dozen AA rechargeable batteries. Should still be cheaper than buying disposable batteries for the camera in the long run.

That motor pool folder will get bigger by the day.

Rob,
Are they ni-cad? It's been my experience that recharible ni-cad AA batteries will die even faster. Of course you can re-charge but that gets annoying if you have to do it too often.

My advice (again) find the Energizer Lithium AAs, those babies last 3-4 times longer than the Titanium "e" batteries. $12 for 4 though.
