Batteries



I am looking for any information on long life batteries for pagers and similar devices.  The pagers are used by emergency responders and are changed out on a monthly (or sooner) basis, which generates a lot of battery waste (currently being recycled).  What battery materials (Ni-Cd, metal halide,etc) tend to perform the best over time. Also, has anyone had any luck with reasonably priced rechargeable batteries?   Any information that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.
