I am with Wes.............and on another note I read a rep from Moultrie said stay away from private label batteries, for they are the ones that leak, and you almost never hear of that from Duracell,and energizer...........Duracell's get my vote and that comes from about 9 years or so of use.
The problem in America is not that ungodly people have said yes to ungodly things, but rather that Godly people have refused to say "no" to ungodly things.

A second vote for Sanyo Eneloop rechargables.

Thats all we use in our professional photo flash gear.

They last about 2x as long as a pack of fresh duracells before needing recharging. They don't self discharge prior to use.

And the best part, you can get about 50 recharges out of them before they loose any of their life. After that they diminish to about the same as standard duracells. Another 30 or so recharges and they are about as good as regular energizers. At that point we retire them to flashlight use around the house.

Saves us TONS of money throughout the year.
Sams/costco often carry them or you can order them online.

Only drawback is that the case diameter of the batteries is SLIGHTLY larger than a standard AA. About the same as if you put a wrap or two of electrical tape around a regular battery.
The only thing I have that they wont fit into is an LED spotlight but if you have a super tight battery compartment it might cause trouble.
If you can't trust people with freedom, how can you trust them with power ?
