EXTREME Battery Life from AA's

Hello Everyone.

I have been traveling in Europe for nearly 3 weeks with my K100DS. Before I left I put in a fresh pair on Energizer Photo Lithium batteries in my camera. I am also carrying 2 sets of rechargables and and 2nd set of the lithiums. Over this time I have taken around 1500 photos (ill-conceived pano attempts and auto bracketing (cause I can) are to blame).

Been through a few SD cards, but I am yet to change my batteries!!

Seriously!

They still show full on the display (I expect they will just die at some point and never show half full).

Granted, hardly any have been taken with a flash, but I am still VERY impressed.

I hope this doesn't sound too much like an add, the rechargeables are Duracell, just to balance it up

Cheers, Tim.
