Anthony,
I think if you search thru the Satbilizer forum you might find a few threads that already discuss the differences in battery types. It might save you a lot of time.

AB and VL are pro batteries. Rechargeable AAs are consumer batteries.

If you're looking at the Steadicam Pilot, and you don't already own pro batteries, then the choice is basically between the Pilot-AA and the Pilot-VLB package. If you're powering just the Steadicam Pilot's monitor, the VLB gives you around 8 hours per charge, and the AA gives you around 4 hours per charge.
