Save environment. If you can, go with rechargeable batteries.

If not, save your devices. After spending $300 fixing my Canon image stabilization binoculars caused by battery leaking corrosion, I threw all of my remaining alkaline batteries in the trash can, and go fully rechargeable ever since. Couldn't be happier. Should have done this a while ago, but was trying to go through the alkalines from Slickdeals.

I agree in principle (I love me some Eneloops ...)
, but not all devices are happy with 1.2V cells.

I was pro-Alkaline batteries up until I opened this deal. lol Not that it's a bad deal..... it just made me revisit rechargeables. My past experience has been that rechargeables don't last as long as alkalines (per charge) in nearly ANY device. That was 15+ years ago. But maybe the technology has evolved now? For me, it's more about battery life per charge. Everything else takes a back seat, including cost. I don't mind paying more over time for alkalines if it means I'm reaching for new batteries 20% less often.

FWIW, my most common uses for AA batteries is cheap flashlights (LED) and wireless mouse. And yeah, remote controls, but any battery lasts an eternity in those.

The best of the current generation of rechargeables are fantastic. Eneloops and the Fujitsu equivalents hold their charge and work extremely well. In fact I have some Eneloops from 2008 that appear to be nearly as good as when they were new.

Yeah the 1.2v thing needs to go away. So many things don't work quite right.

Yea like I said, it's more about useable life per charge. Past experience for me has been: 3 weeks of use for alkalines, 2 weeks for rechargeables before needing to be recharged...for example. Again, I fully realize the cost benefit going on. What I don't like is having to change/recharge batteries more often.

Also, can anybody tell me the pros/cons on wall chargers vs desktop chargers? Some chargers plug directly into the wall and charge four batteries, others have a cord that plugs into the wall and the unit sits on the floor/desk. Pros/Cons? Think I'd rather just have it just hang on the wall...

The ones that hang on the wall generally can't handle heat as well as the plug in models. So depending on where you live and how you'll use it, I would consider the need/convenience.
