40 minutes seems awfully low with quality batteries like Eneloops. Are you running mics with particularly high phantom draw? Are you running the screen on full brightness? Something seems wrong.
Good to hear your experience is similar to mine. Eneloop, of course, is simply a brand, with its AA rechargeables currently comprising the 'lite' model at 950mAH, the simple 'Eneloop' model at 1900mAH, and the 'pro' model, which I use, at 2500mAH: the latter are excellent, but perhaps not what bradh tried?
