What's the best system of rechargeable AA batteries (+ charger)? I'm mostly using them for things like camera flashes, remotes, and radios.

2nd vote for the eneloops - have been using them for a few years and still on first set of 8. Have had very good luck with batteryjunction.com for both batteries & chargers

No doubt, the best I've used are Sanyo's Eneloop cells. They're NiMH but the self-discharge problem is pretty well licked; they're the ones who solved the problem.

Eneloops are still the best, but there are more makers now of LSD (Low Self Discharge) NiMH cells. Usually marketed as "ready to use", their initial charge should still be available at time of purchase.

Sanyo has a fairly broad range of chargers available to go with these things, of which I have a couple. But to really get the most from my cells, I use the LaCrosse Technology BC700 Alpha Power charger. A very good combination for me.
