Take as many fully charged Ni-MH batteries as you can manage, bearing in mind that they lose much of their charge over a week or two.

Take some fully-charged new Ni-Cd batteries as well. They're what the western world's military use, because they they hold their charge until they're needed (and they're taking over the world at the moment, in case you haven't noticed).

Also take a set of Mn-alkaline disposables as a last resort. They have a very high energy density, and don't decay.

Keep all of them warm within your clothing. Chemical reactions as found in batteries are VERY temperature sensitive.
