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

Lithium will last the longest when not in use with alkaline a distant second but still OK. No rechargeable will hold a charge for months at a time and even when fully charged they produce less voltage than an alkaline or lithium battery so the discharge can be slight but still enough to prevent the camera's electronics from working properly.

I use rechargeable batteries for all my flash and frequently used flashlights but never for cameras or other electronics.
