Not sure where to post this. Has anyone come across any long-lasting AA batteries. I use them mostly for my camera and I only get just one day of use out of the batteries.. same with my wireless mouse (not one day.. but not long either). I have tried the energizers and the rechargeable ones (those seem to last even less) but haven't really found any that last longer. Anyone have the same problem or found any that are longer lasting? Thanks in advance.

I had that problem with my camera. Replaced camera and now get weeks out of cheap Radio Shak rechargeables. It seems some camera's are harder on batteries.

My camera sucks batteries like the're free. I finally spend the big bucks and got rechargeable batteries. The only way to go

Duracell probably is the best non-rechargeable battery. I found out along time ago not to buy a camera that uses AA bateries.

Duracell makes pre-charged rechargeable batteries that have long lives. They are low-discharge NiMH batteries, so they hold their charge better and won’t drain when you’re not using them.

Thanks everyone.. sounds like I should just stick with rechargeables or just deal with it. Maybe I'll look into the low-discharge NiMH batterise shopaholic suggested. If any other ideas, please post.

The higher the mah on the NiMH rechargeable batteries, the longer they will last. I'm using the Duracell 2650 mah batteries and they last for quite sometime in my Canon....

I found this bog post about a consumer test done on battery capacity and the Duracell precharged rechargeables that I mentioned earlier did really well. I'm sure you'll find something that will work!
