mAh means milli-amp Hour and is a unit that measures (electric) power over time. It is commonly used to measure the energy capacity of a battery. In general, the more mAh and the longer the battery capacity or battery life.
A higher number means that the battery can store more energy, so it has a higher capacity. Of course, this also means longer battery life for a given usage.
This can be used to provide an idea of how long a device will last, given a constant (or average) power draw rate. For instance, a 3000 mAh battery could power a device drawing 100 mA (milliamp) for 30 hours. A device drawing 200 mA would last only 15 hours. The higher the battery mAh, determines how long the battery can go without charge. I bet alot of you never knew what the mAh attached to your phone batteries means.

Sorry bro but milli amp hour doesn't really determine how long a device will last....depends on how the device has been programmed to function that affects the battery life....

Example is a lot of chinco phones comes with huge mah but can't last you a day of use compared to devices like Sony....with sony, applications are optimized also screen resolution affects the battery life that's why a lot of samsung phones don't last a long times and in the case of iPhone those ones are just being greedy with mah cos they have the most optimized applications lower resolutions and yet lower mah that why you always have a charger in your bag

Give me example a chinko that has a min of 5000mah. That will not last you a day.


Even iPhones are made in China and some other Asian countries.

Google Foxconn! You'll understand that this your chinko this chinko that mentality is rubbish!

Foxconn is primarily a contract manufacturer; clients include major American, Canadian, Chinese, Finnish, and Japanese electronics and information technology companies. Notable customers and products the company manufactures for include
BlackBerry, iPad, iPhone, iPod , Kindle, Nintendo 3DS, Nokia, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, One.and Xbox

Sony's are notorious for their short battery life after full charge.

Samsung's have been found to be much better.

In summary;

The strength or lasting ability of any battery is directly proportional to it's Mili-amp hour(mah)

This you quoted from wikipedia but you fail to explain what is their roles in these companies or are you going to tell me that they produce these devices?
