From the DP firste impressions.
The Z 7's CIPA rating is a middling 330 shots per charge, but as usual this is likely to prove extremely conservative in normal use. On a recent video shoot, we managed more than 1600 images and several 4K video clips on the Z 7 with a single EN-EL15b before the battery started blinking red, so it'll depend to a large extent on how you shoot.

1600 shots in AF-S or AF-C, or a mix or everything including 4K video?  1600 is not bad at all.  Without doing video the battery could probably give you 2000 photos in AF-S, which is what I estimated.  If that is the case then for sure close to 2000 photos is really good.

And moreover it uses the same DSLR batteries found in te most recent nikons, so you might have few already.
