Rechargeable 2CR5 (and others) have a poor reputation for use in cameras. If you want to save money get the Battery grip and good rechargeable AAs.
+1 to this. I used a rechargable 2cr5 in my eos5 and it didn't last long at all. Plus the recharger isn't that well built. For the cash outlayed on the recharge setup its actually cheaper to buy normal 2cr5's. I have both Duracell Ultras and Energiser 2cr5s and they last ages.
I have had bad experiences with Energizer rechargeable batteries. I have the battery pack on my EOS 3 and with 8 Eneloop AA batteries it has been 6 months since I have seen any drop in charge. 2-4 rolls a week. Lot of the times I "forget" to turn it off.
