My worry in that respect stems from the kind of trips I take - next one is ten days in a tent in Snowdonia. My other half has one of those digital jobs made by Nikon and though she follows your "no brainer" approach of copious supplies of batteries, half way into that period even the supposedly wonderful lithium-ion ones are suffering from what I take to be an internal discharge issue. The low temperatures associated with North Wales will undoubtedly not help her batteries, though they will be of benefit to my film reserves!
