NiMh with the most Ah (amp hours) you can find.
You MUST (!) use the correct charger for them. Do NOT use a NiCad charger.
Ebay has some good deals on quantity buys. I got 16 2250mAh "AA"s and an 8 slot charger for around $40.

Thanks For The Advice And Info
Didn't Really Think About The Charger,i Have Two Ni-cad Chargers,i've Had Them For Years.but It Does Stand To Reason They Wouldn't Work On The Other Batteries

Do You Recommend Any Particular Brand Of Rechargeable Battery?

I do know for a fact that Sanyo and especially Panasonic NiMh batteries are premium quality. You will pay a premium price for them though.

Funny how this is a topic of rechargable batteries, and an advert for them magically appears at the top.
