A friend has the SX160is too and he uses lithium AA batteries. He took the camera to 3 vacations in 3 years, took about 500 shots in total and a few short videos. He loaded the images to Google Drive with his smartphone (micro sd card) and sent the link to family. He still has the same set of batteries in the camera! The lithium batteries weigh less too, no charger needed, and you can get them anywhere, 4 for around $10.

For someone that uses a compact once a year, lithiums make sense.  For anyone else that uses a camera regularly, it make no sense to spend about the same amount on disposable batteries as a good set of NiMHs.
