Most gadgets today don't run on 60 D batteries like their clunky ancestors. Usually AA or AAA will do the trick. Though, you should keep in mind that you will probably be using these tech-toys a bit more than usual, since you will have more down time. Hence, the reason for a vacation in the first place. The best thing to do is throw an extra pack of batteries in the bag. This way if the batteries fade you have back-up power. If you want to save money buy ‘em at bulk or discount stores as opposed to buying them at the airport at the last second. Also, check the type.
