Default replacement batteries

Hi all,
I just replaced the battery in my cordless phone. I bought the recommended battery. However, they had another battery that looked the same, was the same voltage, but was rated as almost twice the mAh.
The way I understand it, it should work in my phone, and last almost twice as long between charges. Am I correct?

Thanx,

Ron

Sounds about right to me. If it is the same physical size and voltage it should work OK, it will just take longer to charge.

Having the same voltage, connector and size can a nimh be used to replace a nicad battery in the phone? Will the phone base charger be compatible?

I've replaced the NiCd P-P510 in my Panasonic phone with a NiMh version from Radio Shack (higher MAh rating, shorter cells, lower price). Three months have passed now with no sign of charger/charging problems.
