With the HS20, my batteries lasted from December thru February, and now it's on the second charge. The LaCrosse charger I have was about 50 dollars, but I think it was well worth it, considering it can restore old batteries as well as maximize the power of new ones.

Bill, how much better than Rayovac Hybrids is the new generation of Eneloops? Hopefully they are widely available. Are they the only ones using that new technology?

I have no way of knowing, but so far they're the only ones advertising that kind of battery life. I don't consider it a big deal. I think that even the worst spec. pre-charged batteries from a reputable manufacturer would be more than adequate, but I'd stick with eneloops unless they cost about 10% to 15% more than the competition. As long as the battery life is high enough so that I'm never noticing a problem, they're all good as far as I'm concerned.
