You know what I like? AA batteries. I like them. I like devices that are powered by them. You know what I don't like? Proprietary batteries that cost $60 each. It's why I own a Pentax Digital SLR camera - it runs on 4 AA batteries. Now, I wouldn't mind if someone came up with a new battery, that everyone everywhere sold, and everyone used. But I really mean 'everywhere' when I say 'everywhere', and until that day comes I will defend the AA battery to all who will listen. Like all of you. Suckers! ;-)

ROCK ON to the AA!

I am totally there with you, and love my little pentax with it's "go to the 7-11 to get the batteries" camera.

Admit it -- you only like AA batteries because of where you live. As soon as you move, you'll start singing the praises of "Conway" batteries. *laugh* (and of course, the best type of AA batteries are the rechargeable type!)

I too love AA batteries... and even AAA batteries...

I have about 30 of these:

And for chargers I love those with a mini-USB end rather than a proprietary end!

Wow - those are pretty cool. I can see where, if you carry a laptop, those would be great. But travelling (on holiday) with a laptop is just a bit too much for me.

Hmmm. Unless the laptop is powered by AA batteries....
