Default battery problems ???

i was thin between the canon s400 n sony p72 , but in some review i read that the canon has a worst case runtime ( ie. wid lcd on the hole time - which i thin ill alwayz keep it on ) of juss 60 mins and even if i buy another battery it will last only for 120 mins together. i go to the himalayas once a yr and as ya no theres no real source of electricity out there so i wont be able to charge my batteries for around bout 3 - 4 dayz so can 2 batteries last me ( n i wont be able to afford a 3rd at the moment -they are worth 60 bucks man ) so i was thin too take the p72 n buy 4 - 5 pairs of rechargeable nimh batteries (15 buck for a pair) .

so wat do ya say ??? will the 2 canon batteries be able to last for 3 dayz of intensively usin my camera or should i go for the sony ???
is there alot of diff between there pic quality ???

or can ya suggest some other ultra compact camera wid good battery life ????
plz ppl help .
thanz anywayz

Why not buy generics? You see 'em for as little as 4 bucks on Ebay (+5.99 shippng for first battery + $1.00 for each additional battery). Here's an example:

So, you could get 4 batteries with shipping for around $25.00

Just search for S400 Battery and you'll see lots of 'em.
