I would rethink the AA battery idea. The Canon battery charger for an ELPH, to take an example, is tiny and plugs straight into the wall; I'm sure it weighs less than a couple of AAs and it smaller than the camera. (e.g.,

Even if you're stopping for a meal, that is probably enough time to recharge. The whole system will weigh much less than an AA system, and most importantly, alkaline AAs won't pack the power of a Li battery.
