I'm mulling a purchase of a Zoom H2 Handy Recorder
<URL:http://www.zoom.co.jp/english/products/h2/>, especially since it
has had some favourable reviews

The Zoom H2 saves to WAV and MP3.

Presumably satisfied by the above recording formats.

Reviews say this is exactly what the Zoom H2 does.

The Zoom H2 takes an SD card for its storage (it comes with a 512MB
card), and is specified as supporting cards of capacities up to 16GB.
A 16GB SD card equates to about 24 hours of WAV, or 280+ hours of MP3,
according to the specs.
Note that maximum filesize is still 2GB.
> - Capable of taking rechargeable batteries.
The Zoom H2 takes two AA batteries; presumably they can be
rechargeable ones. It also can be powered from a plug pack.
