For SLRs where I can't use AA,

I'm not sure about Nikon's other battery grips but the MB-D10 for my D300s came with a tray that accepts 8 AA's to power the camera. Bumps the frame rate up 0.5 FPS too. Makes the camera even heavier though.

...and the batteries do not last as long, at least on a Canon DSLR...not to mention you then need to carry a set of 8 AA spares making the weight even more of an issue.

So you've got 16 batteries to lug around, and if one of them gets away under the car seat or whatever, you've still only got one set of batteries to use because 7 charged ones and one dead one are not likely to work very well together.
