I use Rayovac I-C3 15-Minute Charger and they're awesome. The initial cost was 
considerably more than disposeables, but they've paid for themselves several 
times over. I bought extra batteries so as to have two sets of back ups, and it 
works great. The rechargables performance is very close to that of 
disposeables. I spent the money years ago on "rechargeable" batts. and was 
higly underimpressed, so... I was skeptical when I bought these. Glad I did, I 
no longer have to go to home depot to get the contractors bundle of batts 
anymore. Hope this helps. -Tim

  Do any of you use rechargeable batteries in your GPSr?  If so, how well do 
they work in relation to "throw away" types?

  I bought some rechargeables the other day and will probably use them for the 
GPSr and the digital camera.  My idea is to keep track of how often I charge 
them and how many charges they last to compare their price to normal batteries.
