I have some older Eneloops are they're great. Lately they've been hard to come by. I bought my set in part to get the nice four battery charger to use when I travel.

The question usually comes down to use case. Most amateurs could just buy a big box of Amazon Nihms and swap them during the day. It's not like the difference will be that great.

I wrote in this forum to know if rechargeable AA batteries are suitable for occasional use like mine (a whole morning once in a while) or you have to buy them every time.
If so, I think I'm better off with the supplied battery from one of those camera flashes I mentioned earlier.
So the experience of users who have used the latter option is essential.

Rechargeable NiMH are the best.  A set of 4 will cost about $10 USD, and can be recharged at least 1,000x.  Get a couple sets and a good charger.  That way you can quickly swap to a charged set if they run down.  Then when you're done just charge both sets back up.
