The Z9 battery is a new version of the EN-EL18 that fits the D4, D5 and D6, great for the professional who only has to carry one battery type and charger. The battery drives the need for a vertical grip which then determines the overall size of the camera. The big battery should increase the number of frames per charge.

I know it happens but the black out when the mirror is raised has never bothered me, to the extent that I rarely even notice it, that may be because our eyes blank when we move them and our brains fill in the missing detail. The blackout from the mirror is usually very brief and I suspect our brains compensate, only at slower shutter speeds is there a problem.

Personally, I'd rather have a D5 than a Z9 and D5s are becoming more affordable.
