Anyone using AA rechargeables in their grip?

I have a grip for D700 that I use the EN-EL4A for the faster frame rate. No problems, because I have a D2X and already have the charger and several EL4 batteries.

I have a D800 on the way (coming today!), and already have the MB-12. I was thinking about getting EN-EL18 charger and a couple batteries to again get the faster frame rate, but this is going to run close to $700. I was thinking instead about getting some rechargeables to use in the supplied AA holder. This will only cost about $40 for 2 sets of 8, plus 2 chargers. Just wondering what kind of performance I'll get as far as shot count?

Thanks,
