    2800/2500=1.12 times capacity

    Marginally longer runtime (assuming the ratings are actually accurate).

    LOCO is more like it.

    Depending on the quality (or accurate capcity reporting) of the cells, the "higher capacity" ones may give you LESS runtime. I've seen this too many times for it to be a fluke. I'll pay more for "lower-but-accurate" capacity high-quality cells than cheaper "not-really-higher-capacity-but-they-say-so" cells of dubious origin. If all else is equal, ten the higher capacity units will give you a few more minutes of runtime as has already been stated...

    i think you meant 350mA?

    anyway, 300mAh might give a increase in runtime.

    but, it is the newer method of manufacturing that matters.
