I think I figured out how the “300 shots per battery” number was calculated
3

For the past few days I have been shooting a conference using my Z7 where I have the Bluetooth and WiFi turned on so I can download to my mobile device (an iPhone 8Plus) using SnapBridge. This is so I can almost immediately upload so I can quickly email or text SOOC shots to my client and also to my Instagram feed.

Having those features turned on dropped my frame rate per full charge of an EN-EL15b to around 300 frames from my usual 900-1100 frames per battery charge.

Anecdotal evidence to be sure but I thought it was worthy of reporting.
