Godox AD200 x for Canon Xpro

Problem, using three canon speedlights wirelessly controlled by 7D2 and regardless of battery choice (Eleloop Pro or Alkaline) the setup runs out of juice and long waits for recycle and missed shots. I typically bounce two off the ceiling and one direct high to the right with built in diffuser. Effect is satisfactory with room for improvement of course. Been using TTL with FEC about 1+/- stop under. Under 500 frames per session.

Subject is almost always kittens for wife's website. Expressions are fleeting so high frame rate for short bursts are required to capture right expression. Very small volume to light obviously. They don't move particular fast but unpredictable.

Looking at using two Godox AD200 units with an Xpro transmitter. Maybe augment using a Canon speedlight for key light on a receiver module.

How much better would this be for primarily recycle time and length of shoot? None at all? Marginally better? Much better?

Picture samples of recent shoot can be seen here
