d800 grip MB D12 question (AA batteries)

The D800E with grip will be my first Nikon product. Just got a mail I Will receive my copy next week.

For using d800E at 6fps in DX mode we need another battery, same used in the D4. The En- el-18 battery need a new charger as well....

Before spending a fortune on a new battery with charger I look at the option to use the D800 grip with AA batteries. I already own loads of them incuding chargers.
How is battery endurance with 8 AA batteries compared to the en-el-18 battery?
Did I understand correctly we can have 6 fps with AA batteries as well?

What are the pro's and con's of using AA batteries compared to the EN-EL-18 battery?

Thanks very much!
