Furthermore, the mAh or milliamp-hour value tells how long the battery will last based on amount of current we draw. Also, it indicates how many amps the battery will provide for one hour.

Plus, using some math (ratios), you can determine how long the battery will last for any amount of current. So if you double the current, you halve the play time.  Thus if you draw two (2) amps, a one amp-hour battery will last for 1/2 hour.  So this is why playing the speaker very loud lessens the play time per charge.

Also, if you cut the current by half, then you double the play time per charge. So if you draw 1/2 of an amp, our battery will last for double the time, or 2 hours.  Finally, this is why playing the speaker softly lengthens the time it can run per recharge.

Higher mAh ratings generally mean heavier, larger batteries too.  If they chose a higher capacity battery, then it would certainly last a very long time.  But it would also likely be too heavy to fit the inside of the Flip 5. So when they chose the battery size for the Flip 5, they had to balance between portability and capacity. Thus the figures below illustrate this balancing act.
