Battery Life?

I've got a 7-day hike in Grand Canyon coming up in a couple of weeks and am interested in an estimate on the X-T20's battery consumption.

I'll be doing mostly landscape photography with dedicated sunrise & sunset sessions and occasional shots asking the trail. The temps should range from the 60s to the 90s. At present, I'm planning to pack 4 total batteries. I would plan to do the following to conserve power:

  • Power camera OFF after shooting
  • Use EVF only
  • Turn off auto image review

How many batteries would you recommend packing? If the consensus is that 6 or more batts would be more reasonable, I may look into the option of packing a solar charger.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
