Why do Sony camcorder batteries have different capacities?
Camcorder batteries have different capacities because of the cells used within them. There are many other reasons for

having higher capacities are usually the result of the cells having more electrolyte and electrode materials. Typically,
larger batteries will last longer than smaller batteries, assuming that they are of the same chemical type.
Customers can see the measured capacity on their camcorder battery, listed under “mAh” (milliampere-hour).
