Furthermore, the MaH or milliamp-hour value gives an idea of lasting time per charge based on amp draw.  Explicitly, the MaH figure tells how many amps the battery will provide for one hour.

Plus, using some math (ratios), you can also gather how long the battery will last for any current draw amount. So if you double the amount of current, you halve the play time.  E.g. If you draw two (2) amps, a one amp-hour battery will last for thirty (30) minutes or 1/2 hour.  Thus, this is why playing the speaker very loud lessens the Charge 5 playing time per charge. Also, if you cut the current by half, then you double the playing time per charge. So you draw just half (1/2) an amp, our hypothetical one amp-hour battery will last for double the time.  Finally, this is why playing the speaker softly lengthens the run time per recharge.
