(Milliampere Hours) a measurement used to describe the energy charge that a battery will hold and how long a device will run before the battery needs recharging. The higher the mAh's, the longer the battery will hold a charge. A milliampere hour (mAh) is 1000th of an ampere hour (Ah).
MilliAmp-hours is a measure of the amount of power that can be stored in a battery. The higher the rating, the more power is stored.
milliAmp-hours; a rating which measures the number of milliamps (1/1000th's of 1 Ampere) a given battery can supply at it's rated voltage for one hour.
milliAmpere hour - a measurement of the capacity of (rechargeable) batteries. Currently the highest capacity AA NiMh are around 2500 mAh.
Milliamp Hour - This is a measure of a battery's total capacity. The larger the number of milliamp hours, the more the battery can store. Batteries for today's electric aircraft range from 600 mAh for small park flyers to 8,000 mAh for 3D electric helicopters. Cars typically run 3,300 mAh packs. Do not confuse milliamps with volts!

Milliamp hours. Unit of measurement to describe a battery's performance.
A rating used in the consumption of power of an electronic device such as an LCD or the storage capability of a device like an NiMH or Nicad rechargeable battery (i.e. 1200mAh cell). It stands for milliAmperehour
MilliAmp Hour How much current a battery will discharge over a period of one hour. Higher numbers reflect longer stamina. A 1000mah battery will allow for a 1 amp draw for period of 60 minutes.
A measure of a battery's capacity. The larger the number of milliampâ€(tm)s the longer the battery cell will last.
A measurement of electrical capacity, milli amp hours. A 1000mah battery can supply 1 amp of current for 1 hour or 4 amps for 15mins. If the above battery is charged at what is called 1C (where C is the batteries capacity) it will be charging at 1 amp and depending on the type of cells (say NiCd's) will approximately be fully charged after about 1.2hrs ish. Further over charging could cause cell damage, reducing performance or explosion.
