    I just bought a Canon A620, which comes with 4 alkalines only, and would like to buy some rechargables.

    Is there any reason why I should pay over twice as much for Canon brand NiMH batteries, when I can go to Walmart and buy a set of 4 Energizers and charger for $20?

    Canon simply says that they recommend (of course) their batteries and will not be responsible for performance or "leaking" of other brands. How likely would there be problems with other brands, as long as one sticks with the major brands?

    I'm sure you'll be fine with other major brands. In fact, I've used generics for years with no problems. Make sure that capacity of the Energizers are similar to the Canon batteries (look for a mAh rating). Often, the cheaper batteries are around 1800 mAh, while longer lasting, higher capacity ones are 2400mAh or higher.
