Won't power on with Rechargeables, only standard batteries.
This happened the other night: my camera sort of froze up, and after resetting, would not power on again. I tried several sets of fresh batteries (all rechargeables that I have used in the camera before), and nothing. A pair of alkaline batteries, however, and all was fine. So the camera works, but has become rather environmentally (and financially) unfriendly.

You don't. The DMC-LS6 uses standard AA batteries, either disposables or rechargeables. If you use rechargeable batteries then you must charge them outside the camera using a separate charger. AA rechargeables and chargers should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.
The Kidizoom uses four standard AA batteries. You may use disposable alkalines or rechargeables. If you choose to use rechargeables, you much charge them using a separate charger. The Kidizoom is not a battery charger.
The A900 is not a battery charger. It uses two standard AA batteries, either disposables or rechargeables. If you choose to use rechargeables, they must be charged outside the camera, using a separate charger.
In a convoluted way. The FE-46 uses standard AA batteries. You may use either disposable alkaline or lithium batteries, or rechargeables. If you use rechargeables then you must charge them outside the camera. There are chargers that run from a computer USB port, and there are even AA batteries that plug into a USB port. However, you canNOT charge the batteries by connecting your camera to your computer.
The L22 takes two standard AA batteries. You may use disposable alkalines or lithiums, or rechargeable NiMHs. Don't mix them, that is, use two of the same kind. If you use rechargeables, you must charge them separately; the camera is not a battery charger. You can use any brand, though I'd stick with the major brands.
Lithiums will last longer than alkalines but cost more. Rechargeable batteries cost more and won't hold a charge as long as alkalines, but can be reused.
Many times these digital camera require photo lithium batteries or rechargeables. I recommend you Purchase these first and try it out. Many times the standard household batteries just do not have enough power to turn on digital cameras. If you are still experiencing problems after new batteries then return back to store for another camera because that model may have a problem.
That's your decision. Alkalines are the cheapest. Lithiums will last longer but cost more. Rechargeables won't last as long per charge but they can be reused.
If you're going on vacation, you might want lithiums. If you're staying close to home, you might want rechargeables you can charge up every night. No matter what you do, you'll probably want a set of spares just in case, just as you'll also want a spare memory card.
Are you using the high power rechargeables, or normal AA's? Some of these cameras will only shoot 20 pics on AA"s, where the good rechargeables will get 1-200+ shots, check with your manual on recommended batteries.
