What battery pack to buy



I am making an obstacle avoiding robot which uses Tamiya Twin-Motor Gear Box (http://www.robotshop.ca/tamiya-twin-motor-gearbox.html) which has two FA-130 motors. Maybe I will add lcd, leds, etc. in future. So what battery pack should I buy. There are different types of battery packs available at http://www.pololu.com/catalog/category/54

Which one would serve the purpose, and would be usable for future use.
