Longer DSLR battery life with higher mA-h?

01 December 2009 - 07:01 PM

In a D-200 I use the Nikon brand EN-EL3e battery (Li-ion 7.4V 1500 mA-h). Alternate brands advertise direct replacements with 2200 mA-h advertised. Does anyone have experience using the higher mA-h batteries?

I've been using a D-200 for a few years and understand that battery life is impacted based on how I set up the camera (eg control panel backlight on continuous) or which lens is used 105 VR consumes more. I am curious if the higher mA-h batteries extend life with all other things being equal.
