Canon 5d Mark II + Speedlight 580II battery issue

Hello,

I was doing a photoshoot with this combo, but I noticed after 150 shots or so that the recycle time of the flash started to increase and then failed altogether, the batteries being the cause. I was surpised that I could get only 150 shots with 4 fully charged batteries. Is this normal? This was my first shoot with the combo.

Thanks
