EVF uses more power. CIPA rating with EVF is 330 vs 400 with the LCD (source).

Thank you for quoting the source. Did they (imaging-resource) measure it themselves as they did not quote any source?

On the other hand, shooting in Prioritize EVF mode likely uses less power than auto or LCD only mode, as EVF turns on only when eye-sensor triggers.

Since it's listed as a CIPA rating I assume the data came from Nikon testing to the CIPA protocol rather than IR recreating the CIPA test themselves.

The numbers are tabularized as they own measurement. AFAIK, they are the only ones who can report different CIPA numbers for LCD and EVF usage; typically there is only one CIPA battery life number. I am cautious about their numbers until I find a secondary or source.

The numbers are from Nikon:
