The D200 definitely goes through batteries quicker than any other camera using the same batteries. All-day sports shoots would run me three batteries. The D300 and D700 are noticeably better for power consumption.

Chimping is the biggest drain. Minimizing the LCD use via the menus would also be a good idea.

Minimizing the time used for focus and metering might help, but that starts to interfere with the taking of photos.
