For lasers, AAA Sanyo Eneloops are great. AA Sanyo 2700, 2500 are great as well. Just use the charger that comes with them. (buy a pack that coms with a charger first)

The best rechargeable AA/AAA cells I've found to date are Maha Powerex.

I bought the Wizard One Charger/Analyzer too -- it's a great tool for keeping all my AA/AAA NiMH cells in good shape.

I've heard that Eneloops are good, and personally, I'd go with them, but I have Rayovac Hybrids-they haven't failed me yet. Just another idea. :P

well i went to radioshack because i had a $15 gift card there. didnt find any eneloops or anything like that but i did find radioshack brand 1.2v 750mAh precharged ni-mh AAA 4-pack for like $4 on clearance. so i got their $1 universal travel charger and they both work great. it was a total steal too! $5 for a 4 pack of AAA nimh's and a charger!!!!! eventually ill get some eneloops and compare the two but so far these cheapo radioshack ones work better than standard AAA's!

i cant find either product on their web site so i think it may only be an in store deal.

The best batteries would be energizer lithiums.

But they cost way more then any other batteries!
