I think that Z6 battery life is more a function of the time that the camera is ON, rather than the number of shots taken. When I’m walking around, composing, checking and taking very few photos, I get the same 150-200 photos on a battery, just as you found. When I’m sitting still, shooting active birds and wildlife, I’ve approached 1000 photos on a charge. I’m still trying to figure it out, but I’d say “90 minutes per battery” to be conservative, so if I’m going out for 3 hours, that is 2 batteries, no matter how many photos I take. It is a different way of thinking about battery life.

Bingo! Fortunately, by the time we get to the Z models, most of us have accumulated more than one Nikon Nikon EN-EL15b Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery, or at least some of the 15a. I always carry extra batteries. Cheap insurance.
