get sanyo eneloop, you will not regret it. They are low discharge so they hold their charge for months if you do not your camera for a while.

awsome thanks.. i will look into them.

I hate when they either discharge on their own or that they stop recharging 100% and die so much faster

well i've been researching them in my area and it seems like only costco sells them... the thing is that they sell either a huge pack of AA's but no charger or they sell a mutil size pack with the charger... i don't need c and d's? so how can i get a charger otherwise??? hummmm

no you do not need anything but AA, but the kit gives you C and D adapters I believe but the cell themselves are AA. I normally just order them from amazon or another online shops.
