We just use rechargeable batteries. The (common, regular) energizer ones aren't that good, but work ok in wiimotes as wiimotes don't take as much battery as a camera would. But really good rechargeables are "eneloop" and Rayovac (has "platinum" on the side as well)--any rechargeable that says "precharged" on the package is part of these better batteries and are even strong enough to use in cameras.
We got this charger--it can charge multuple brands of batteries and can recondition them when they aren't working as well any more...www.amazon.com/Crosse-Technology-BC-700-Ba

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne
