Re: AA Batteries: rechargeables or disposables best for me?

It doesn't sound like you will be using rechargeables enough to justify the added cost. I would just buy disposable batteries and leave them in the car. If you decide to use your camera more than 20-30 times a year, you may want to consider buying Sanyo Eneloop rechargeable batteries. Eneloops are rated to hold 70% of their charge 5 years though they may drain faster in extreme heat. Regular NiMH batteries only hold their charge for a few weeks so avoid those.

Hope this helps.
