My F5 rapidly depletes alkaline AA's, and lithium AA's last longer. The MN-30,Mh-30 (two battery inserts needed-one in use, one charged)system is greatly overpriced.Some people are using rechargable NiMh l600 mah AA batteries(about $20 USD for 4 AA's),but I haven't been able to obtain solid informatio o 8 NiMh AA's last as long as lithiums(about 40 rolls),or as long as the Nikon MH30?The batteries pose no risk to the camera,according to all articles I have read(F5 uses batteries in series,minimum requirement 7V;8 NiMh AA @ 1.2Veach=9.6V;F5 operating rang -12V).NikonUSA advises buying their MN,MH-30 system only(over $600USD for charger, two inserts).Would appreciate any specicic information, since all of my inquires to date have not been specifically helpful due to lack of user experience. Any info will be appreciated. Thanks.

Stan
