D500 very poor number of photographs per battery charge

Hello everyone

i know that this has been discussed endlessly but I am two weeks in to using a D500. The battery has been charged three times and although it is in Airplane mode, touch screen turned off, etc the best I have got is 220 shots which is for my third battery charge. I haven't been chimping endlessly, just pretty normal variety of single and continuous focussing.

I see today that Nikon have released an even newer version of the battery labelled 15 a . Mine is a 15 so not the one that was the subject of the exchange offer. Wonder if they have realised a problem?

Have I got a problem Battery? Do I need to go through some more charge and discharge cycles? Rather worried by this and would be glad of some advice.

Thanks in advance - sure someone can offer some helpful comment.
