That could be useful for a wireless mouse, just buy 4 batteries, and have two charging on spare usb ports. That way you wouldn't have to worry about not having batteries when you run out of juice.

And yes, they are the rechargeable NiMH.

Ah, OK. I guess that makes sense. I'm just not techawareenough to have thought of that.

Milliamp Hour (mAh)

Milliamps Hour (mAh) is important because it'* the easiest way to distinguish the strength or capacity of a battery. The higher the mAh, the longer the battery will last. Batteries with different mAh ratings are interchangeable. If your battery is rechargeable then the mAh rating is how long the battery will last per charge.

Milliamps Hour is 1/1000th of a Amp Hour, so a 1000mAh = 1.0Ah

Think of a cars gas tank. Voltage is how much gas is being used, and mAh is the size of the gas tank. The bigger the gas tank (mAh) rating the longer the device will run. If your battery is rechargeable, then think of the gas tank as refillable (rechargeable).
