AKICILJ: camera batteries

The ol' digital camera is giving me grief. Specifically, I am getting the "low battery warning" and consequent shut down as soon as I put new batteries into it. It wasn't such a battery hog when I first bought it (though still went through them pretty fast); but this is not supportable.

Is it worth buying rechargable NiMH batteries and trying them out? On the plus side, I get the impression from various websites that they are much better in digital cameras than standard alkaline batteries (which I've been using so far). Also I suppose they are better for the environment if I keep on using them. On the downside, if the camera is basically broken (which is a concern, given that it didn't always have this problem so badly) perhaps I would just be throwing good monety after bad?

Advice gratefully received. (Especially from sciamanna or anyone else who also has the Fuji Finepix A340.)

I'm going with the flow here - NiMH seems to work fine for me (Pentax Optio 50, takes 2xAA batteries). The thing to look for, as I understand it, is the charge the batteries hold rather than the voltage - mine are 2500mAh, and take a long time to charge, but last quite well (relative to the size of the SD card, anyway).

All batteries of a particular type will always have the same rated voltage, so it's rarely an issue in deciding to choose between batteries.
