Default AA Battery+Charger

Anyone know some reliable long lasting AA rechargeable batteries + charger from a local shop(Walmart, etc...)? I've been looking through reviews and most say that they dont charge after a while or some kind of con. Any personal preferences.

Thanks

You will def notice a difference with the extra cell (6v not 4.8v) with a hump pack. Will give you better steering.

Well, I'm talking about for the remote. Unless hump packs work in the control also. Do they?

I won't comment on chargers because I don't know much but I know one common fact about batteries. Sanyo 2700mah are the longest lasting batteries and they can be charged up to 1.5A without them becoming hot. You can abuse them to hell but they will still provide the longest life.
