Here's a tough question that I've been waffling on for a while now.
I love taking lots of pictures wherever I go to the tune of 1000+ on an average 2 week vacation, so, for me, a digital camera is the only way to go (no disposables for me). Only problem is that most digital cameras use propreitary lithium batteries.
My original take on this topic was a canon a770-series plus 2 sets of 2 AA batteries and a solar "flap" style charger that I would deploy now and then. But the batteries are HEAVY. Hell, my samsung i8 and three lithiums batteries weigh the same as a pair of lithium AA's!
But now I have to carry a charger around for the camera and use my finest puppy eyes on resteraunt and convenience store staff to let me borrow an outlet for 1/2 hour here and there.
How did you guys solve this problem?
