Battery age

Guess what..., with the camera on the left I can do about 3000 14bit compressed raws with SB-800 used in "fill in"... With the camera on the right, it's well over 5000... I don't see how can people complain about the battery life of their camera when they can solve the matter at a silly cost without ever having to replace the battery... Isn't it obvious that when using the camera without a pack it's with knowledge of the user on the limitations and that the designer has taken that in mind, as well as the solution?

Guess how many shots my 27 yrs old straps can do... (I have 6 of them, 4x black, 2x wine...)

I think I have right to complain. My battery life indicator has moved into the "1" stage and I've around 1300 shots on the shutter!
