In my case, 1.3 Amp/20HR= a steady 65 amps in 20 hours, giving off a total 1.3 amps in those 20 hours. Let me do the math here:If my battery disappates 1.3 Amps in 20 hours, than that means it disappates 26 Amps in one hour. Correct?

At 1.3mAh, if you drain 1.3A for one hour, it will be dead after that hour.http://www.societyofrobots.com/batteries.shtmlAs sdk32285 said (I learn something every day) is that they slowly drain the battery over 20 hours when the manufacturer rates the battery in the lab. So basically 1.3A/20h = 0.065A drain for 20 hours. If they ran the test over 10 hours, that 1.3A rating might end up being 1.4Ah, or 1.2Ah, simply because the drain rates aren't perfectly linear. sdk32285 said 20h is the industry standard, that way all manufacturers rate their batteries in the same fair way.

They are very high capacity and you can wire two in parallel for more capacity, whereas with NiMH and NiCd you can only wire them in series.

Depends on the servo. About .3A for the small ones and up to 1A for the large ones.

well i think i'll be using like $8 standard servos

anyway do the batteries have mA or A marked on them too? or only mAh?
