I dunno about you but my gf's A80 can run w/o LCD for 14+ hrs (!!). Battery life is highly dependent on camera, usage (flash KILLS batteries) and battery type. If you're using AA, best battery you could get is a rechargeable Ni-Cd or Li-ion 2000+mA cells from Radio Shack or other electronic stores.
