Default TSA - Travel Question

I am traveling next month via Delta airlines in the US. I need to take my Fuji HS10 with me which runs on AA batteries, plus spare batteries and charger. Also I need to (or want to) carry all my luggage on the plane if at all possible, had a bad experience in 2007 where they lost my suitcase..... Can someone who knows more than I can dig up (called Delta they referred me to TSA and the TSA.gov didn't really answer this)..... how many extra NiMH rechargeable AA batteries can I carry.

I read something a while back about you can only carry two batteries total (is that referring to D-SLR packs or all batteries -- I know they are worried about batteries shorting out and causing fire). If it matters I carry my batteries 4 to a set in plastic holders/cases that come from thomas distributing when you buy batteries from them. I'd like to be able to carry two complete sets of AA extra batteries and the charger in my camera bag alone with extra memory cards and wolverine flashpack device.

Thanks in advance

well the ones in the camera do not count. But I have carried 8 AA batteries for my flash with my carry one. The rule on batteries is that you can not bring on any spill-able batteries. And all lithium batteries need to be carried on.
