Funny, I had that kind of mess BEFORE I went lith-ion...

But I only see one charger. I was talking about having 9 chargers for Lith-ions and about 20 batteries. Now that's a real mess! On our recent trip we had to take 4 chargers for the various cameras (and the phone). It took 10 hours (collectively) to charge up all the Li-ions before the trip besides having to unplug lamps in the hotel room to recharge some of the batteries.

The AA camera went the entire trip on one set of Lithiums with no fuss.

I have never had a Li-ion rechargeable that lasts longer than about 250 shots -- probably due to the compact size everyone thinks is such a blessing. I want conenience and dependability and I see that it's possible with Lithium (not Alkaline or rechargeable NiMH -- they're old technology) AAs. Time to move on.
