Don't think you want to use these in a Pentax DSLR. Alkalines don't perform well.
Eneloops all the way.

I just thought it was a good deal for some extra batteries to have at home. I go through them like water with my 7 remotes, flashlights and other toys.

I had the same issue and about 6 months ago I splurged on a bunch of eneloops and a proper charger. One of the best investments I've ever made.

For regular Alkaline, the best deal is the Kirkland brand at Costco but I never use them in Camera
