    Does anyone use rechargeable lithium batteries in their digital cameras, etc.? The regular charger I saw yesterday is nice and compact and plugs directly into the wall, but the package didn't say how long it took for the batteries to charge. [​IMG] I'd go for the 15-minute charger, but it's huge -- about 4x the size, and I want to take it on vacation, so I don't want to lug that whole big thing. But I don't know what the charge time tradeoff is vs. the compact one, so I don't know if the extra bulk is worth it.

    EDIT: I should have said rechargeable 2200 mAhs. Not lithium.

    I use rechargeables myself. 2200 mAh PowerEx NiMh AA (not lithium).
    This is the charger I have. Works quite well - has a fast and conditioning/full charge settings.

    Thanks. That's quite a bit more compact than the ones I saw.

    Has had some pretty good reviews from photo sites.
